Kerry Spina  Yoga Teacher – Parent Educator – Counsellor/Coach.

Style of Kerry’s class

2000-01-01 00.05.15I take a wellbeing approach to yoga. I think of it as 3 core elements for the body and mind; to stretch, strengthen and relax.  My classes are fluid with breath, strength, flexibility, and the balance of motion and stillness. The intentions for my yoga classes are to encourage you to explore your own inner wisdom and limits through bringing awareness to all parts of the body and mind.  The mindfulness required in yoga is what inspires and supports me to living a healthy, whole-hearted and happy life.  Classes are fun and challenging, but taught from a place of safety so that participants can ease into their own practice in their own time.  With my shared love of music and yoga I am in my very own heaven on earth.  I look forward to seeing you in class :).

Jasmine Healy-Pagan RYT, BEd

Style of Jasmine’s class

jasmine3-1Yoga is an ancient system of self-study for those of us who wish to live life feeling balanced, vibrant and with peace. My love for Yoga began in 1997 when I was living and working in New York City. I believe that yoga finds us when we are ready to learn more deeply about ourselves. Our commitment to our yoga asana practice can change considerably from year to year. As our lives change, so can our yoga journey. Many people have told me how they once tried yoga and that they didn’t like it or that they just couldn’t do it. I too tried yoga many times before I found a style of yoga that suited my needs and then it was years before I started to understand how yoga is a complete system for living. Like our favourite tastes in a world full of variety, yoga also comes to us in a range of styles from a variety of teachers. When we find a yoga teacher that connects with our needs, it is then that our amazing yoga journey begins! . May you discover many connections to bring you inspiration, awareness and balance throughout the year. ~ namaste, Jasmine Healy-Pagan

Rachelle Isaac – Yoga Teacher – Massage Therapist & Reiki Master

Rachelle is a passionate yoga teacher and mother of three beautiful children. She is passionate about health and nutrition and an advocate for healthy life style choices encouraging stillness, awareness and healing as an overall means of foster balance in life.Rachelle

She believes everyone can practice yoga and that you do not have to be flexible or be able to ‘perform’ a pose perfectly.  Yoga is not just about inviting flexibility and strength to the body, it is also about creating flexibility and strength in the mind.

Rachelle initially turned to yoga for the physical benefits that it offered, until one day she discovered that the physical practice had such a deep connection to life off the yoga mat.  One thing she has come to discover is that yoga is a supportive tool that assists her to ride the ebb and flow of life.

Rachelle training has been with My Health Yoga.  Rachelle has also spent time in Cairns studying at the Knoff Yoga School, with Nicky Knoff.  She has completed her studies in the Healers Course with My Health Yoga.  Rachelle is a Master Reiki Practitioner.

Rachelle teachers with warmth, humour and passion for yoga.  Students are welcomed into a nurturing environment where healthy breathing, alignment and balanced energy flow are consistent focal points.  Rachelle practices and teaches an eclectic style of yoga, integrating many aspects and many beautiful styles into her teachings.  You will leave her class feeling enlivened and renewed.

Sonia Anear – Yoga Teacher, Coach, Reiki Master, Massage Therapist & Healer

Sonia AnearYoga and meditation for me are about taking time out for self-nourishment, and to stop reflect and check in with myself.  It’s a time to stop from the busyness of life and check in, a time to grow, understand and heal.

Yoga can be utilised by anyone to stretch, strengthen and relax the body and mind.  It doesn’t matter what your age or body type is or how flexible you are.  Yoga connects the body and mind through the breath.

Passionate about health and wellbeing I initially trained and practices as a Chiropractor in a large multi-disciplinary practice in Sydney prior to starting a family.

After sporadic experiences of yoga with my mother as a child and through my uni days, it wasn’t until my life was completely out of balance that i really came to appreciate the true gifts of yoga and meditation.  Yoga and meditation became my path to healing to now living a more balanced and centred life.  I am passionate about sharing what I have learned along the journey to enable you to shine your own light bright.

Fred Beattie – Yoga Teacher, Thai Massage Therapist, Reiki Master and Intuitive Healer

Style of Fred’s Class

Fred’s classes are relaxed, fluid and fun. She loves to incorporate many different styles and aspects of yoga into each class.

Fred believes that yoga is for everyone and there is no need to be a pretzel or to even be able to touch your toes. Connecting with your breath and physical body is a powerful tool to becoming more flexible in your mind which will then transfer to your body.Fred yoga copy

Fred uses sound healing and massage at the end of her classes and devotes at least 20minutes to relaxation at the end of the practice.

“I love yoga – I love sharing it with people, I love doing it, living it, breathing it and practicing it. My teacher training was the most powerful self-development that I have ever done and I feel so blessed and honoured that I get to share this life-changing tool with people every day. Yoga, like life is what you make of it. If you want a purely physical practice than you will truly love the stretching and strengthening involved in the Asanas. If you are looking for something a little more spiritual than you might find that your practice on the mat will ripple out over your life and you will see how yoga really can be a lifestyle.” – Fred Beattie.
