She teaches lots of different styles of yoga including essentials, beginners, vinyasa flow, hatha, yin and meditation. She is also a registered and accredited Remedial Massage Therapist and Personal Trainer.

She loves to empower you, to realise your unique greatness, to challenge you, and also offer a sense of ease and relaxation. Yoga is a spiritual practice, learning the tools on the mat for the true yoga off the mat. Her favourite quote is by Buddha ~ “In the end, only three things matter, how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you”.
REFORMER PILATES & BARRE INSTRUCTORMegan’s interest in dance and human movement led her to Pilates, as she found there was lack of balance in her own body, evident in her gym training and dancing. From there her journey through the fitness and wellness industry has been very diverse. In 2003 I did my first Pilates training course and started practicing in a commercial environment in 2004. In 2006, after having her first child, her focus changed into group training and making Pilates more accessible through small groups using auxiliary equipment. During this period I also did personal home visits with clients. These clients varied from general fitness, joint replacement rehabilitation to post cancer recovery. It was an enormously fulfilling period in her career. Over the last 8 years her journey has also extended into the very sought after Barre technique.
REFORMER & SPINLATES INSTRUCTORTia first began practicing Pilates as a form of exercise 7 years ago, while working shift work as a chef and juggling her six month old new son. As a passionate healthy living advocate and mother of two young boys she understand everyone leads busy lives but that if we love what we’re doing and nurture our body we can achieve great things. She loves that everyone – young, old, injured, triathlete, prenatal, postnatal – can enjoy long term benefits from Pilates and you can see that passion in her teaching. She believe Pilate’s focus on posture, core stability makes it an important practice for people of all ages and background. Tia teaches Reformer Pilates and Spinlates, she is passionate about creating fun, dynamic classes that leave you feeling stronger, fitter and maybe a little sweatier. 🙂

YOGA AND MEDITATION INSTRUCTORAlice believes Yoga is a combination of Strength, Flexibility and Balance in conjunction with conscious breath which brings the mind and body together into the present. Alice’s own personal practice developed as a form of stress relief while studying in Psychology. In 2017 Alice was selected by the Australia Cambodia Association to train and mentor local Cambodian: Teachers, Social Workers and Care Givers working with Cambodia’s most vulnerable children and the communities in which they exist. Alice knew she had much more to learn which later led her back to India to live and study Yoga in Rishikesh. Teaching Yoga lights Alice up and her favourite style to teach is Yin Yoga, a practice she refers to as being a meditative and cellular detox. Alice’s classes incorporate knowledge from Western Psychology and Science alongside techniques Eastern techniques such as pranayama and meditation designed to help each student open and expand their bodies and mind while using their breath to work through any blocks within the body.
Denise practices yoga daily both on and off the mat through physical practice, meditation and healthy living. She is extremely passionate about the yogi life and simply wants to share this energy with others as they follow their own journey – perfect just for them. Synchronicity – things happen when they are meant to happen. Thinking initially she had found a substitute for physical exercise, she soon discovered the positive effects yoga had on her mind and soul too. The experience of yoga workshops, retreats and yoga challenges all led her to completing her first Teacher Training in 2014 under the direction of Janine Leigh, Hot Yogi Australia. Then in 2016 she completed Yin Teacher Training with Janine and Sarah Owen, Sarah Owen Yoga and Yogalates Teacher Training under the guidance of Nicole Whiteman, Body Awakenings. Yoga has changed her life. It has provided her with simple tools to create balance and peace within, whilst living in a chaotic and hectic world.
