Fiona Dillon - Yoga Teacher and Certified Sport Yoga Instructor
“I'm on a mission to share the benefits of yoga and good nutrition.”
I am a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance and a Certified Sport Yoga Instructor with the leading certification program in the US: the National Exercise Sports Trainers Association (NESTA). I also hold an additional certification in Leadership in Running Fitness with England Athletics.
I am a yogi, runner and lawyer! I mainly teach Yoga For Runners, Sport Yoga for Athletes and Corporate Yoga. I have always been sporty - hurdles, long jump, hockey, netball, tennis, badminton, rock climbing, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, fell walking, cycling, horse riding and more! I went to a yoga class about 30 years ago and admit I hated it and dismissed it!
So how did I end up, not only practicing yoga, but starting yoga teacher training and establishing Fiona Dillon Yoga. It all started with an article in Runner's World about the benefits of yoga for runners. I contacted the author of the article in the USA to find out more... and the rest is history!
On completing my training runs, I soon noticed I didn't feel like I had run! I increased my yoga practice and soon began to see and feel the benefits - old injuries healed, I remained injury free and I began to run faster whilst decreasing my training miles. I couldn't believe how quickly I started to feel changes in my body. I became stronger, less prone to injury, felt lighter on my feet and my posture began to improve.
Yoga has increased my core strength, realigned my body and made me a stronger, more efficient runner. There is so much more to yoga than asanas (poses), the asanas are one of only 8 limbs of yoga. Breathing and meditation play an important part in yoga and cross over into running and all other sports.
I am proud to be a Brand Ambassador for Blossom Yoga Wear. The leggings are so comfortable and offer full coverage even in downward facing dog! My leggings receive many compliments in my classes and on social media. The designs are colourful, creative and fun - I wish I owned every pair!
Frances and the Blossom Yoga Wear team are so welcoming and friendly and I love supporting such a quality British based brand.
