Austin came to yoga in an attempt to avoid surgery for a painful lower back condition. The results were “amazing” and he no longer needed an operation to ease the pain.
So impressed with the results of yoga and the life-changing effect it had, Austin decided to become a teacher and share the benefits of yoga with others.
He completed an ‘It’s Yoga - San Francisco’ Ashtanga Vinyasa teacher training course before continuing with their Advanced ‘Rocket’ Vinyasa course. As well as teaching classes and giving private one-to-one instruction, Austin has tutored on Yoga Alliance US certified teacher-training courses in the UK as well as Goa, India. Austin also completed the Tapasya Yoga teacher training at Triyoga with Kristin Campbell, an Anusara teacher.
Austin’s classes are energising and flowing, balancing a strong physical workout with a calming restorative element. He keeps instruction clear, interesting and light-hearted, while never losing sight of the serious benefits to his students from what he is teaching.
He believes that to grow as a teacher it’s important to remain the eternal student. A regular practitioner of Jivamukti and Anusara, styles that compliment, and together with the teaching of the Stewart Gilchrist they combine to influence his own teachings.
