Mark Atherton

Mark always loved to move his body and was obsessed with gymnastics as a child. He was always intrigued by the shapes he was able to find with practice and discipline. After a little searching, he found himself in a yoga class and couldn’t believe how incredible it felt to reconnect with his body. It took about a year of regular classes before he knew he wanted to dive deeper into understanding yoga and embarked upon his first yoga teacher training. Now, many years later, he shares his passion by teaching new yoga teachers and offering online classes.
Mark's Mantra: "In the end, 3 things matter: how well we have lived, loved and learnt to let go."
