Ruth Stanton has been living in Adelaide for 11 years, having moved from the UK where she trained in Karuna Yoga with Ruth White, of the Iyengar lineage.
Ruth Stanton has been teaching yoga since 1999, and although her background is very much of the alignment style, she has since trained with many different teachers and schools of yoga, including Satyananda, where the Yoga Nidra tradition originates from. Ruth trained in pregnancy yoga with Sitaram (UK), Pranayama with Philip Xerri (UK), and recently qualified with AAYT to teach yoga for breast cancer with Annette Loudon (Australia). Her recent interest in Yoga Nidra has led to a detailed study of this subject, and her classes often include this deep guided meditation process.
Yin yoga is part of Ruth’s recent journey – and she loves to teach this inward and quietening style of yoga. It’s meditative nature and focus on the breath and release of the fascia is a wonderful way to reconnect with the body.
Her nurturing and intuitive style of yoga is perfect for small classes and her focus is on quietening the mind in order to the balance within. There is joyful bliss inside our hearts, and yoga is the perfect way to find it!
