Ann Doran

Ann doran

Fitness Teacher - Vassiliki

Hi, my name is Annie and I am from Dublin, Ireland.

I feel so happy and honoured to be chosen as part of the Healthy Options team. My background is corporate, having worked in sales, then accounting, for nearly 20 years. But I changed course several years ago after overcoming a serious illness that left me hospitalised and immobile for three months. I thought, there had to be more to life, then sitting at a desk all day!! And so my fitness and spiritual journey began.

I had always struggled with my weight and I lost six stone through the help and support of my local gym. During that time I found a passion for physical activity and realised what a huge impact movement had on my mental health and wellbeing; also I did not realise how competitive I was! I then trained as a PT and started working full time in the gym.

My own experience of being new to a gym, new to movement, new to being compassionate with myself and appreciating that even the littlest of steps forward was progress, gave me a real insight as to how my clients were feeling and how to best support them.

We all want to feel better inside and look better on the outside and to do this we need to learn to be kinder to ourselves, appreciate what we are able to do, don’t compare ourselves to anyone else and celebrate each of our wins.

I love to teach, motivate and connect to people while having fun and so I will be teaching a variety of fitness classes which aim to get the heart pumping, the body moving and also connect to our breath and posture.

I cannot wait to encourage and be a part of the journey of others who have overcome similar hurdles. Can’t wait to meet you all.

Ann Doran will be available from 19th June to 20th October

Giorgia Monteleone

Giorgia monteleone

Yoga Teacher - Vassiliki

I started practicing Yoga six years ago in Italy, considering it a mere physical practice, but in a short time I realized that it is much more than that. I've never stopped practicing since then and after my 200hr ytt in India, Rishikesh, I began to realise that Yoga was changing my life – This made me want to share my experience about this amazing discipline with other people.

I studied several aspects of Yoga and in particular, I have deepened my practice in Ashtanga Vinyasa, a style that combines dynamic and intense movement with a powerful breathing technique.

I love teaching and working with people to achieve their goals so I will mix different styles in my classes, with the aim to empower the breath and increase awareness of correct alignment.

I like helping students to gradually develop the physical and energetic openness necessary to reach a yogic state. Improving physical strength and flexibility increases the positive effects on the mind, bringing about a sense of calmness and lucidity.

I firmly believe that Yoga is a never ending path through our inner self and a powerful way to develop a positive connection with our bodies and minds. I am grateful to share this excellent tool with people.

Giorgia Monteleone will be available from 19th June to 20th October
