Steven Conville

Title: Teacher

Steven started practicing yoga almost four years ago when living in Shanghai.  At first it was the physical practice that kept him coming back, but over time the more subtle aspects of yoga began to become as important as the asana practice. He has completed a Jivamukti 300 Hour teacher training course in India as well as an 800 Hour jivamukti apprenticeship in Barcelona. Asana, pranayama, mediation, and kirtan have helped Steven find a strong grounding in an international satsang that promotes compassion, humility, and kindness to all beings.  Steven is happy to be home and offering his teachings in the Monday evening 5.30pm and 7.15pm Jivamukti classes. 

In 2013 Steven relocated to Shanghai where he embarked on his yoga practice. Like most newcomers, he was inflexible and stiff at the beginning which has made him a huge believer that anybody can begin a yoga practice.

Having spent 4 years in Shanghai, Steven embarked on the next leg of his yoga journey when he travelled to India to complete the 300-Hour Jivamukti Teacher Training. Committed to developing his yoga practice, he invested a further six months completing an 800-Hour Apprenticeship at Jivamukti Yoga Barcelona under the guidance of advanced teacher Maria Macaya.

October 2017 saw the return to his hometown, Belfast, where he has been fortunate enough to begin sharing his love of yoga through teaching at various studios. Steven's classes are challenging but accessible, and always work towards a peak pose to allow students to develop functional awareness and express themselves through their own yoga journey. Classes flow, but pay attention to alignment, and you should leave class feeling stretched, challenged, and with a sense of rejuvenation.
