Program Lead: Beth Crivelli

In 2011, disenchanted by my fashion career, I decided to swap luxury rags for sweaty shorts to become a Bikram yoga teacher. I have been fully committed to teaching yoga full time since then. Throughout my years of teaching and practicing different styles of yoga, I realised the magnitude of what yoga truly is – a physical, spiritual and ethical practice.

I have since trained in Jivamukti Yoga, Vinyasa flow, Prenatal yoga and taken a number of anatomy courses. As well as teaching yoga to the general public, I specialise in teaching bespoke private yoga sequences. I am currently training in yoga therapy with Yogacampus.

Throughout my years of teaching, I have come to realise the extent to which we all have different bodies and life experiences, making each individual unique. Yoga, in all its aspects, is a path to balance therefore I incorporate different asana sequences into my classes and include Sanskrit chanting, meditation, Nidra and breathing exercises.

Yoga continuously challenges you, changes and shapes you in ways you will not believe. The practice of yoga is a harmonising self-study, which helps to align one with inner and outer peace, as well as the earth and all its inhabitants.

Marylou McDonnell

Main Programme Facilitator

Marylou is known for boosting your confidence, motivation and happiness. She is always grateful to help you to discover the healing and therapeutic benefits of your practice and to improve your wellbeing. Her goal as a teacher is to observe, guide, support and encourage, and this comes from a place of deep respect for each student and for the practice. She is currently training in Yoga Therapy and this enriches her teaching. Ask her questions, she loves that!

Her classes make you leave feeling on top of the world and already looking forward to your next class. Our students love Marylou’s approach to teaching Bikram, as she always keeps it lively and energetic and always stops to assist and give fantastic tips.

Here what our students have to say!

“Vinyasa Teacher Training 2018 is one of the best things I have done in my life. I am finding the programme challenging, exciting, amazing and all the possible emotions that one can face when they are starting something brand new. For me, this is something very close to my heart.

Everyone involved has been extremely supportive, from the teachers & Sadhana staff, to the fellow yogis and yoginis. The training itself is just fantastic and the course material goes into so much more depth than I initially thought. The hard work and dedication that has gone into the material by Beth et al has been inspiring, and you can really feel it whilst learning.”
