Emma Warmington (E-RYT500)

If there is such a thing as a typical yoga teacher, Emma is not it. A fiery Celtic spirit with deep passion for authentic living, an infectious laugh and a hardy aversion to spiritual platitudes, Emma is a long term traveller, world adventurer and life-long student who has been teaching yoga internationally since 2006.

A colourful past with a plethora of physical and emotional traumas has fed Emma’s greatest fascination for this life’s odyssey; the human animal’s seemingly boundless capacity for healing and transformation.

Having attended, assisted, co-taught and lead 8 residential yoga programs over the last 9 years, Emma has learned a thing or two about teacher training. She has developed a steadily progressive and highly effective method for training teachers and is currently offering both 200hr & 500hr Yoga Alliance registered courses in Thailand, Costa Rica and Northern Ireland.

Designed to build confidence, personal integrity and reveal raw authenticity, these programs and the dedicated team who teach them, encourage and support trainees in sharing their personal experience of yoga whilst standing confidently in the power of their own unique voice.

As a student, Emma continues to seek out the greatest teachers she can find and to date has accumulated over 2000 hours of accredited training with some of the world’s best. She brings together the depth of this knowledge plus her thousands of hours of teaching experience from around the world whilst remaining free from the restraints of any particular system or dogmatic approach. An affiliated Heart of Yoga teacher, Emma also holds certifications in Science of Chakra Yoga, Anusara-Inspired Yoga, Hatha Yoga (RYT500 from Anusara), Forrest Yoga (Advanced TT), Ancient Healing & Transformational Voice Work (Voices of Eden) & Tao Tantric Arts (Mantak Chia’s Universal Healing Tao), and has taken hundreds of additional hours of training with many notable teachers including extensive study of Body Mind Centering with Amy Matthews and Yoga Anatomy Principles with Leslie Kaminoff.

In teaching yoga, Emma guides her students with Krishnamacharya’s Principles of Practice as taught by her most influential teacher, Mark Whitwell. These breath focused principles provide the foundation for all practices and are complimented by sound alignment cues, mantra, hands on assists, self love, emotional release and the development of felt sense awareness as students come back into that place of deep connection were healing can occur. She teaches under the umbrella of Yin & Yang Therapeutic Yoga and her classes are informed predominantly by the needs of the people in front of her.

An enthusiastic kirtan wallah and crazy in love with sacred sexuality, Emma facilitates retreats and immersions programs with guest teachers as add ons to her trainings. She has a long history of practicing Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), conscious communication, massage, tantra, meditation, qi gong and silent retreats. This multidisciplinary approach has created a richly varied practice and a teaching tool kit that adapts to serve the individual and the ever changing nature of life. She is passionately dedicated to sharing these healing arts as a path to deeper intimacy in relationship, liberation in the body & mind, self-confidence, freedom from struggle in daily life and limitless personal growth.

Poncho Cottier (E-RYT200)

Authenticity, inspiration and transformation. Originally from Mexico City, Poncho spent the first part of his life attempting to become the person he thought others wanted him to be. His yoga practice began many years before he stepped onto a mat when he chose to leave a promising career in marketing to follow his dream of moving to Paris and becoming a photographer. Without knowing it at that time, he had embarked on a long journey of self-discovery, expansion and metamorphosis across the globe.

A few years later, whilst living in London, Poncho attended his first yoga classes as a way to release some of the stress from his second career as 3D modeller in film. Only two years after his first savasana, he packed up his life for the second time and set off on a one-way yoga/meditation journey through India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand.

Since then, yoga has been a fundamental element of Poncho’s life. He has been blessed with the generous guidance of truly gifted teachers in different yoga styles including hatha, vinyasa, anusara, ashtanga, iyengar, and more recently taoist yoga & qigong, from which he has developed his own ynamic, expressive style with a strong focus on structural alignment.
From taking that first leap of faith, Poncho’s life has become a constant striving to uncover layer after layer to reveal his underlying true self. By sharing his life experience through teaching he inspires others to do the same. Poncho teaches joyful, profound, empowering classes from the deep knowing that it is possible to have every area of life be an authentic expression of oneself. He encourages his students to move beyond old paradigms and to bring the benefits of practice to life off the mat.

Looking for the underlying beauty in all situations and people, Poncho has a natural gift for human connection, empathic listening and appreciation. Apart from teaching yoga, Poncho is a Thai massage practitioner and communication coach. He splits his time teaching in Chiang Mai, Thailand and facilitating workshops and retreats in Europe, Asia, the US and his native Mexico.

Laurence Gilliot (E-RYT200)

Growing up in a bilingual family in multi-cultural Belgium, Laurence learned from a young age how to bring people from different backgrounds together and let them connect as human beings. Soon after she completed her Master’s degree in Business, Laurence chose to follow a path of adventure and service to others. For 5 years, her work in an international non-profit organisation allowed her to facilitate deep community conversations in remote villages in DR-Congo to slums in the Philippines to violent neighborhoods in Papua New Guinea.

Along the way, Laurence started to practice yoga, which had a profound impact on her life. She saw that she could greatly contribute to this world by transforming her own emotional luggage and by sharing her practice with others.

With 6 years dedicated practice to yoga with a wide variety of styles and gifted teachers, Laurence now sees yoga as a journey home, reconnecting us to the deepest parts of ourselves, with our breath, humour and self-love as travel companions. Her classes are inspired by Anusara, Vinyasa, Restorative yoga, Yin yoga and Ayurveda.

Meditation in motion has been a common denominator in Laurence’s life. Besides the practice of yoga, she completed a 5-month walking meditation in the Himalayas, facilitates the dance of Compassionate Communication and is a certified facilitator of Dance Mandala, an ecstatic dance expression, where participants listen and follow the body’s intuitive wisdom.

Since 2006, Laurence has studied Buddhist mindfulness meditation on several retreats with Zen-master Thich Nhat Hanh and she co-facilitates a weekly meditation group in Chiang Mai. She combines this Eastern practice of Buddhist psychology with the Western practice of Non-Violent Communication to coach both individuals and groups towards more fulfilled and joyful lives.
