Aidan started attending Iyengar yoga classes in London in 1997 and was instantly drawn to it. It helped to give him freedom from a long-standing back problem and he also enjoyed the calming effects on the mind that yoga practice brings. He completed the Iyengar two-year introductory teacher-training programme in 2006, and curerntly holds a Junior Intermediate level 3 certification.
Aidan has been lucky enough to study over long periods with some very experienced teachers in the UK. He has also been to India twice to study with teachers there and continues to study with teachers visiting Heliotrope Yoga Holidays. Aidan believes that yoga can help everyone to realise their potential and live more balanced and fulfilled lives. His experience is that practicing yoga is a profound way of learning to rise to the challenges of our bodies and the stresses of life. He has an established Pranayama and meditation practice and likes to weave these aspects as well as yoga philosophy into classes. Aidan moved to Istanbul in 2009 and has been teaching at various studios there since moving there. He continues his other work as a musician/producer and also as a director of Heliotrope Yoga Holidays.
