Teachers

Our teachers are trained in a variety of styles and lineages and all have their own unique flavour when it comes to teaching yoga. A dedication to facilitating ‘your experience’ of the practice is what we are all about!

It is hard to remember a time when yoga wasn’t part of my life. I dabbled in classes through my early 20’s and in 2002 I set on the path of a 2 year teacher (500 hour) teacher training course through the lineage of Sri T Krishnamacharya. I have been studying and teaching consistently since I graduated in 2004 with my mentor Barbara Brian, and the Desikachar family – in Australia and India.

I also conduct a 500 hour teacher training course in the Krishnamacharya tradition for those who want to explore the deeper teachings of yoga.

My special interest is in yoga philosophy and utilising yoga as a therapy to help individuals achieve health and healing. I am currently studying a 1000 hours Yoga Therapy course and also taking part in an exciting research project involving yoga for mental health through Deakin Uni and Barwon Health in Geelong.

When I’m not teaching or practising yoga I am fulfilling another dharma to my husband and two boys and can be regularly spotted walking our Kelpie on the beautiful Ocean Grove beach.

My first yoga experience was in 2003 and I was immediately taken by the calmness that over come me. I then completed my first 200hr teacher training in 2005 with that very teacher in the Macedon Ranges. From then I’ve been off and on the mat at times juggling family and other work commitments.
I have completed level 1&2 Yin Training with Truth Robinson and another 200hr teacher training with Duncan Peak – both from Power Living Yoga. On this learning journey I have also discovered my love for Qi Gong (Chinese standing meditation).
My own practice of yoga is strong but being aware of the connection with my breath always keeps me calm – no matter what I do in life.
I am passionate about teaching people the importance of being strong & stable within their physical form but also to find kindness and compassion towards self and others. Everybody deserves to have stillness and give them self precious time to be in this space. This is the gift that yoga offers.

I fill my days with educating the gorgeous little humans of the world as a teacher. I'm also Mum to two amazing teenagers and an active Kelpie who keeps me running - the other thing I love to do!

I am a total fan of feeling good from the inside out and relish the great outdoors and environment we live in. Through yoga I find the the strength and patience to move forward in life when obstacles are thrown my way. It always has the ability to heal my mind and body when I stop and listen to what I need.

Practicing yoga for over 2 decades and my natural 'teacher' personality drove me to investigative the teachings of yoga back in 2013. My yoga training is based on Krishnamacharya Tradition and was a 2 year and 500 hour accreditation process. My science degree in Western Human Physiology and Chemistry along with these studies based in the Eastern philosophies has given me a wealth of knowledge on how the body works. I love being able to deliver yoga to others from beginners to experienced students and see the importance of being able to adapt the practice according to the needs of each body.
