Ruth came to hatha yoga in 1998. Its immediate impact was profound and quickly led to a sincere and dedicated practice of the subject.
Ruth went on to train and become a qualified Iyengar teacher. She trained under Grainne Gilleece in Ireland and with Rajiv and Swati Chanchani in India. Ruth travelled to the Chanchanis in India on numerous occasions for extended periods of exploration, study and immersion in the subject. She is grateful to have assisted in both the local and medical classes during her times there where her understanding deepened. She has also spent time in Pune, India studying in the Iyengar Institute.
In 2008 Ruth was first exposed to the practice of Shadow Yoga. Shadow Yoga is a school of Hatha Yoga founded by Shandor Remete (Natanaga Zhander). Since 2010 she has studied directly with Zhander and Emma Balnaves who continue to guide her study of the subject.
Ruth is truly grateful for the knowledge and guidance that all her teachers have shared.
