Colette began her study of yoga in ‘96 where she was guided to practice by Dr Ali Mostaf, to help her realign her neck issues.
She trained in many aspects of yoga and Ayurvedic therapy and has travelled and studied extensively in Asia ending up as a Senior teacher at Absolute Yoga in Singapore.
Colette feels that her therapy background is a perfect compliment to yoga and has helped her deepen her knowledge as a teacher.
She is extremely thankful to all her teachers for sharing their knowledge and providing intuitive guidance allowing her to teach in depth.
Through the years of encouragement and discipline, Colette believes yoga brings you to your true self where laughter and positivity, awareness and patience are cultivated on and off the mat.
Has been doing fitness classes for over 20 years. A lower back problem led him to Body Balance then onto Bikram Yoga.
His first hot class was in a studio in Jersey and since then he has practiced in studios in London, Manchester, Brighton, New York and Miami.
Jamie trained as a Hot Yoga Teacher with Absolute Hot Yoga in Thailand and is now a fully certified Yoga Alliance teacher.
He is also a trained facilitator, mediator, coach and has studied counselling. He is a management trainer and delivers personal development workshops on Assertiveness, Confidence Building, having Difficult Conversations, Coaching Skills for Managers, Equality and Diversity, Managing stress and many others.
He has been a member of the Infinity team since the studio opened in January ‘13.
Steph trained in one of London’s top drama schools to pursue a career in acting and found the industry was much tougher than I had anticipated. During the three years she gradually began to lose confidence in herself and the stress of the course became quite overwhelming. In her second year, a yoga studio opened locally so she took advantage of every offer going and attended as many classes as her student income would allow. After a few classes, she noticed a huge difference not just physically but mentally. She had so much energy and found calmness and clarity when dealing with tricky or nerve wreaking situations which is something you are faced with daily when starting out in this industry.
In February, 2015 she decided to take her yoga further and headed to teacher training in Australia to study with Jimmy Barkan. Steph is so excited to be sharing this sequence with you all and hope it inspires you to take time out of your busy lives and focus on yourself. You deserve it.
Jamie has been practising yoga since September 2010 and quickly realised the physical and mental benefits that a dedicated practise can produce. His whole outlook on life became much more healthy and positive. Originally he began practising Bikram yoga, before long he was introduced to a variety of styles when he joined Infinity.
He had the privilege of being taught by some inspirational teachers since he began practising which made him want to complete his teacher training to help other students get benefits that he has experienced.
He travelled to Thailand in June 2014 and completed his teacher training with Absolute Yoga Academy. He learned the Absolute Sequence ( Hot A ) and since returning home, he has been developing his teaching style moving forward to teaching Hatha-flow and believes in a light hearted approach to teaching. "It can be a tough practise it's important to smile and keep the atmosphere focused yet light".
Out with his teaching he is interested in health and nutrition and is currently studying a sports nutrition course and course in Pilates. He has a background in biology and chemistry, qualifying at the University of Glasgow with a degree in Chemistry. This has lead him to have a particular interest in the physiology involved in the asana to produce the physical health benefits. His talents also stretch to knitting kneedles too!!
Cat's Vinyasa teacher training took place in Boca Raton, Florida in July of 2013 with Yoga South. She relocated to Glasgow in June 2014 to pursue her teaching career knowing that she could assist the growth of the yoga community here.
Catriona was first introduced to yoga in 2011 when she was employed by a company that sold yoga apparel. It took about a year for yoga to move it's way to the forefront, circuit training and boot camps became secondary. She began attending classes regularly and soon felt a different kind of strength and power that yoga offered through movement with breath. Cat was soon introduced to Acro Yoga (partner yoga) which drew her interest further into the art and "play" of yoga. She was able to advance her practise with the help of her Florida teachers both in the classroom and whilst out 'flying' with the Acro yoga group, working on arm balances, handstands, headstands and floating transitions to and from postures. She also challenges her balance skills using props such as balance boards and slack lines, working her physical and mental focus which improves her practise on the mat.
Her vinyasa flows are built for all levels of students, while still offering challenges to any students who wish to take them. One of her goals is to be teaching with a wide range of athletes to improve their mobility and focus.
Catriona's drive to teach comes from seeing her students engaging, learning, and constantly growing to accomplish new achievements.
