Morven has been practicing yoga since 1995, and also brings to her yoga teaching over a decade of experience teaching English, French and music. Morven completed entry-level training in Akhanda Yoga with Yogi Vishvketu and Chetana Panwar in the Himalayan town of Rishikesh, India. She has done some Anusara teacher training with Amy Ipolliti in Seoul, South Korea. She has subsequently undertaken intensive training in Therapeutic Yoga with Susi Hately, Tantra Yoga with Rod Stryker and Kundalini with Yogrishi Vishvketu. Morven studied for YA 500 certification in Bristol.
Morven is firmly rooted in the Akhanda school of holistic Hatha yoga. Akhanda yoga deeply respects and honours the traditions of Hatha yoga whilst leaving room for creativity and self-expression. Her travels to India continue to enhance her experience of Yoga.
She has been profiled by the Evening Post and This is Bath, and Somer Valley radio with a focus on her yogaThrive programme for those with an experience of cancer. She currently teaches as an associate on the Bristol City Yoga Teacher Training Programme and is planning the first Akhanda Europe teacher training in Portugal in August 2015.
She now teaches classes and workshops in Bristol and teaches on occasional retreats and holidays in the South West of England and around Europe. She is the director of Yoga by Nature retreats, and committed to offering the teachings of yoga in an inclusive way.
Morven's aim is to share yoga's vital tools for self-empowerment and healing. Her own journey with Yoga began with an intuition that this ancient practice contains the secrets to health, happiness and peace, and she teaches from her own transformational experience.
