Stefan Cunnington E-RYT 500, YACEP, Dip.Med. Teacher
Stefan conducts yoga and meditation sessions in a challenging and fun way and he is truly dedicated to supporting others to achieve their full potential.
Stefan's yoga journey began more than twenty years ago in his country of origin, Romania, where he first trained in integral yoga. Stefan trained intensively for eleven years, in which time he gained extensive knowledge and experience of teaching a variety of styles of yoga including Swara Yoga, Laya Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Kundalini Hatha Yoga, Yantra Yoga, Raja Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Karma Yoga, Ayurveda, and Kashmir Shaivism.
In 2003, Stefan relocated to England with his wife, Teodora. Continuing to promote the knowledge and practice of yoga, Stefan has helped to establish a community of yoga teachers and practitioners in the East Midlands. An advocate for self-development, Stefan trained with Sun Power Yoga (200 Hour, Power Yoga) and Yoga London (500 Hour, Ashtanga Vinyasa) and he qualified in Anatomy Studies For Yoga Teachers (ASFYT). Stefan’s experience of teaching also extends to Sports Massage and Holistic Therapies. Over the years, he has taught in a local Further Education College and private training centres including UKHolistics.
Stefan's teaching practice is underpinned by his knowledge of human anatomy and physiology as well as a deep understanding of yoga philosophy and energy systems. In addition to establishing popular yoga classes, workshops and charity events in and around the East Midlands, Stefan is also the founder of Active Balance Yoga which offers yoga and meditation teacher training programmes and CPD opportunities.
