About your hosts…

Eirian Collinge - Cariad Yoga

From the age of 19, Eirian’s journey with Yoga has taught her how to deal with life’s challenges in a wonderfully creative way. 

For most of her 20’s she worked in high pressured sales roles which triggered stress related IBS, Acne & Insomnia. After being signed off work with burnout in 2013 she found she didn’t have the energy for her usual fast paced Ashtanga or heating Bikram classes. It was at this low point that she was introduced to a regular meditation practice at Roger Cole’s Better Sleep workshop. This immersive weekend completely changed her personal practice and relationship towards herself and stress, eventually leading her to complete her teacher training in 2015.   

Eirian leads regular workshops in the workplace specifically for stress and burnout. 

Jessicarr Moorhouse - TRIBE.MCR

Jessicarr works part time as an NHS Doctor and is the founder of TRIBE.MCR. She took the decision to start working part time in August 2018, after she began to experience stress and anxiety symptoms at work. Now as a Personal Trainer and founder of TRIBE.MCR, she is an advocate for the physical, mental and social benefits of movement and exercise.

Jessicarr has used movement and exercise to help alleviate stress and anxiety, which on the whole has been effective. She has found, however, that focusing solely on high intensity exercise can be detrimental. This is why she decided to try out yoga and feels very lucky to call Eirian her teacher and friend.
