Austin is an experienced yoga teacher, who came to yoga in an attempt to avoid surgery for a painful lower back condition. The outcome was transformational and he no longer required an operation. Impressed with the results of a daily yoga practice and the life-changing effect it had, Austin turned his back on the music business deciding to become a teacher to share the benefits of yoga with others.
He completed his 200hour teacher training in Ashtanga Yoga & Rocket Vinyasa Yoga with It’s Yoga – San Francisco, before continuing his Advanced Rocket Vinyasa Yoga training with The Yoga People. Austin then adding a further Anusara based 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training with Suzanne Slocum-Gori, Noah Mace, Nico Luce and Dr Genieve Burley. He has also studied with the Tapasya Hot Yoga teacher training at Triyoga with Kristin Campbell and has a certification in Yin Yoga from Bernie Clark. He has furthered his yin trainings with Sebastian Pucelle, Murielle Burellier and with Norman Blair. In all completing over 200 hours training in yin and meditation.
Austin’s classes are energising, creative and flowing, balancing a strong physical workout with a calming restorative element. He keeps instructions clear, interesting and light-hearted, whilst never losing sight of the serious benefits to his students. He believes that to grow as a teacher it’s important to remain the eternal student. Austin teaches Dynamic Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Rocket Yoga, Alignment based Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga.
As well as teaching classes and giving private one-to-one instruction, Austin has tutored on Yoga Alliance US certified teacher-training courses in London and Goa and is a 500hr.
