Our yoga programme, headed up by Megan Romilly, will include Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin, Broga, breath work, guided meditation and sound bathing.
Megan, a native Californian now living in Wiltshire, has studied with a wide variety of master teachers, doctors and physiotherapists all of whom have shaped her teaching style and her practice. Megan teaches Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and Restorative yoga as well as meditation and breath work. Megan is a level 2 EFT practitioner and is currently working towards becoming a Wellness Coach.
Through her 33 years of practicing yoga Megan has developed an inclusive and compassionate style of teaching for all ages and levels. Her intention is to bring students closer to healing, growth, and transformation through the practice of asana, meditation and breath. A regular yoga practice has the potential to make you stronger, more supple, to prevent and heal injury, and to sharpen your mental focus and awareness.
Megan teaches classes, privates and retreats all over the world, and is busy creating a programme that will cover absolute beginners, to experienced yogi’s.
Clare Allen, Yin Yang Yoga
Clare will be teaching Yin Yang Yoga at VERVE. She completed her initial yoga teacher
training at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Kerala, Southern India.
Her trainings include Shiva Rea, Sri Dharma Mittra, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark and Paul Grilley.
Over the years Clare has incorporated aspects of all the major disciplines and of the ancient yogic teachings and traditions to create a unique class, which she hopes, will prompt students to look far beyond the physical dimension of yoga.
After training with Bernie Clark and Paul Grilley, Clare has developed a strong interest in skeletal variation/anatomical uniqueness, and she incorporates this knowledge in all her classes. The emphasis is on demonstrating to students that yoga is no longer a self-selecting group open only to those who can physically adhere to martial verbal alignment cues from their teachers. Conversely, she will show that yoga is indeed accessible for EVERYONE.
Clare has taught students of all ages and ability over the years and she is
confident that people can achieve more than they ever dreamed possible
in their yoga practice and in their lives when fully embracing this wisdom tradition

Frank Musker, Chakra Colour Meditation
Frank met his teacher in California in 1985 and he has been working with him ever since. He taught Frank many methods of meditation - Tibetan, TM, Kabballah etc but ultimately the one he enjoys the most is Bakhti - devotional - meditation. It's the simplest and the most loving.
The chakra colour meditation which Frank will lead at VERVE is a simple breath led progressive relaxation which allows one to get into the state of stillness and calm where visualisation is possible. From there one visualises each of the seven principal chakras - energy centres - which were identified in ancient India.
Each chakra has a colour and a specific sound which is chanted in order to open these chakras and allow proper energy flow between them. It's very restorative and can even be joyous when one really surrenders and commits to it.
Each colour has a symbolic meaning and relates to different aspects of living, so they become a kind of shorthand when you want to focus on e.g. healing, transmutation of negative energy, intuition etc.
After all, it's all about light and sound which is just energy and it's what we're made of - Stardust.
FULL YOGA PROGRAMME WILL BE RELEASED IN MAY.
