I appreciate Kieran's knowledge of the body and his clear instructions for all levels of yoga practice. My experience of Kieran is that he is a keen student of presence - and the anxious mind habits and beliefs that interfere with that simple awareness. Being fully engaged as a teacher, Kieran imparts the deeper awareness and wisdom of yoga /... More

Kieran is a wonderful Instructor, he teaches Anusara Yoga, He is an extremely observant teacher and makes sure your alignment is correct. He focuses on the breath, the mind, the body and bringing them all together. He makes sure everyone in the class understands what he is "going for" , "looking for" and helps if modification is needed. He changes... More

I am not a complete beginner in yoga, but far from advanced level. I did my share of different yoga courses in different places I lived in, but Kieran's class was something else. He is a great teacher, very motivating and with very individualized approach to each student and our different needs. He brings together different levels of yoga in... More

Kieran is a calm, inspiring, and gifted teacher. I would recommend anyone, whether a complete beginner, or with a more advanced practice, to go and spend 90 minutes beside the ocean in this wonderful studio. I hope to be able to return before the season ends in April. Thanks Kieran!

There was a substitute for the regular yoga teacher (I can't remember her name!) and she was excellent. The instructions were clear and she gave helpful, clear corrections and suggested modifications.

This was my second visit to Natura Cabana and my second experience of Kieran Barry's yoga classes, which are so much more than you might expect to find in a beach hotel. The setting - a yoga 'temple' - could not be more idyllic - yoga to the sounds of the ocean waves. The class is a mixed level class... More
