Hanne Winther
Hanne (pronounced HA-na) has practiced yoga since 1999 when she took her first Iyengar yoga class as a young, anxious teenager. She can still remember how clear-headed and peaceful she felt walking out of her first class. Along the way, her yoga practice also helped balance out a rigorous schedule of training for swimming competitions and triathlons, it helped her through two pregnancies and endless toddler tantrums, and in general has given her incredible tools for navigating life. Hanne has practiced yoga with instructors across North America in Washington DC, Montreal, San Francisco, Portland, and Vancouver. She continued her practice when she moved to Kerry in 2010. Four years later, Yoga Killarney was born. Her hope is, that through the practice of yoga, she can guide her students to feel better in their bodies and minds. Hanne is a registered and insured yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance UK. She received her initial training from The Lotus Seed in Portland, Oregon. Her mentor, Wren Doggett, is a pioneer of non-profit and outreach yoga in the US. Since completing her training, Hanne has developed a keen interest in kinesiology and current research into chronic pain. Her interests have led her to study with and learn from like-minded movement professionals and scientists, such as, physiotherapist Sarah Court, biomechanists Jules Mitchell and Katie Bowman, pain scientist Lorimer Moseley, chiropractors Garrett Neill and Andreo Spina, yoga therapist Gary Kraftsow, kinesiologist and strength coach Eric Cressey, Feldenkrais practitioner Todd Hargrove, and yoga teachers Cecily Milne, Kathryn Bruni-Young and Dana Santas, who are helping to bridge the gap between science and yoga.
