Aislinn Kenyon

Yoga Teacher
Park Road, East Bergholt, Colchester, Suffolk, CO7 6XS

Aislinn came to yoga as a way to keep active after a career in dance and circus. She fell in love with the practice and it has been a steady and unwavering support throughout her life since. She teaches with compassion and warmth, and is inspired to make yoga accessible to everyone regardless of experience. Her classes are mindful with a strong focus on breath and internal awareness. “I teach so that students can uncover a sense of clarity and space within themselves”.

Since becoming a Mother Aislinn’s passion is to work in pregnancy and postnatal yoga, not just through teaching yoga, but to create a community where women can connect and support one another. New parenthood is a challenging and isolating time that requires a new kind of village.

Aislinn completed her first 350hr teacher training in Brisbane with YIMI – Yoga and Integrative Medicine Institute in 2014, attracted by their focus on both traditional yogic teachings and modern application. She has gone on to complete further trainings in Pre & Postnatal Yoga, Baby Massage, Traditional Yoga Therapy, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra and continues to fulfill her curiosity as a dedicated student of yoga.

Holly Aldred

Holly Aldred

Yoga Teacher
Park Road, East Bergholt, Colchester, Suffolk, CO7 6XS

I thought I was drawn to find Yoga through the avenue of looking for improved strength and flexibility. And that in some part is true, but what kept me coming back was the intrigue and in awe of how Yoga both challenged and comforted me. Yoga is physicality with beautiful thought provoking subtilise. Shining light onto options for navigating life that are thousands of years old and yet seem just so relevant and vital today, plus of course you get an awesome stretch.

When the opportunity to teach was placed in my path, I simply had to. A deep yearning to share what I am continuing to learn and experience has bought me to ‘Honour Yoga’.

I hope to offer everyone the opportunity to honour yourself with less critique, clear the path to deep rooted intuition, indulge in feeling content and perhaps through the study of yourself feeling more prepared to be present in the world and embrace all of its ebbs and flows. (I can recommend a Warrior Pose in the supermarket is always appropriate)

I’m not sure we honour ourselves enough in this modern world and I hope through ‘Honour Yoga’ you feel welcome, safe and deeply cherished.

Holly Aldred can be found teaching our Beginner Flow classes and supports Samantha in her yin & meditation classes. Holly is also a valued member of the Same Star Reception team.

Mousumi Pain

Mousumi Pain

Yoga Teacher
Park Road, East Bergholt, Colchester, Suffolk, CO7 6XS

Mousumi has been practicing yoga since childhood with her father. However, 11 years ago, with the inspiration of 2 teachers, Suganya and Rajiv Biswas, her perspective on yoga changed. Until beginning of last year, she practiced with various teachers, and she became a regular student of Astanga, taught by Teresa Kennard. Gradually a hobby transformed into yearning to gain knowledge about the impact of each poses to the mind and body and of the root of this magical exercise that changes our thinking and way of life.

Mousumi embarked on a 10 month teacher training journey with Faye and Samantha at the Same Star Yoga School. Under the guidance of Faye, she has enriched her vinyasa practice further. She has developed a new interest in Yin yoga taught by Samantha. She feels blessed to be an intermediary to spread these deep-rooted knowledges gained and promote peaceful way of living in the community.

Mousumi explores vinyasa, hatha and Yin-Yang yoga style on spiritual foundation, choreographed with mythological stories. Her yoga styles are blended with Pranayamas, meditations and chanting of shlokas, ensuring participation of anyone with or without experience in yoga.

“Practicing (abhyasa), selfless action (Karma) and duty (Dharma) with discipline (tapasah) and devotion (bhakti), is yoga”

Samantha Layzell

Samantha Layzell

Co-owner & Yoga Elder
Park Road, East Bergholt, Colchester, Suffolk, CO7 6XS

Samantha Layzell is a registered 5000hr Yoga Elder for IYN. Her personal yoga practice had supported her for 25+ years through back injuries, family life and a corporate career, and massive change, so when she had the opportunity to go on an extended retreat in 2013 she signed up for a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (200YTT) in Southern Goa, India with a view to simply deepen her own practice.

She had no idea that this was going to change her life forever! Within a month of returning to the UK, Samantha found herself teaching a regular yoga class and much to her surprise never looked back. During the past nine years Samantha has fully stepped into her own personal development, surrendering to the spiritual aspects of yoga and finding a path to compassionate self-healing through yin yoga & Buddhism.

Samantha’s calming vibe and positive energy come through in every class where she compassionately encourages her students to indulge their physical, emotional and spiritual selves in a powerful exploration of everything yin. Her knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, gained through her work as a sports massage therapist, supports her teaching and allows her to identify modifications for people wishing to practice yoga as part of their injury rehabilitation process.

Samantha strongly believes that yoga is for everyone. One of her big loves is sharing yoga with people who didn’t think yoga was for them.

Samantha says…

Yin yoga invites us to be emotionally adventurous, truly being with what is and gives us the time and space to practice finding comfort within discomfort. Bringing yin energy into our lives balances and supports our yang (active) yoga practice and challenges us to dig deeper, unwrapping the layers until our innermost self, our Buddha nature, is revealed. Come and join me on the mat where you can luxuriate in the compassionate loving kindness that is yin yoga. Step into a beautiful nurturing space where you can broaden and enrich your yoga practice and truly find your bliss.”
