This term we are welcoming two recent teacher training graduates, Vivianne and Victoria!
Having practiced yoga for the past 15 years, across various forms, I decided to take the leap and undertake my 200hr teaching certification earlier this year. I was fortunate to have come across several wonderful trainers through Byron Yoga Centre and was able to develop my teaching foundations with a focus on safety and alignment.
I have a real interest in the philosophy aspect of the practice and believe it is critical to work with the body, as it presents each day when you arrive on the mat. Overarching this, I think yoga should be practiced with a smile, cultivating an inner sense of gratitude towards a healthy body, mind and spirit.
I am currently completing my 350hr teaching certification, with plans to gain my Certificate IV in Yoga Teaching in really 2017. My long term goal is to combine my previously acquired BA Psychology with my yoga training and move towards a holistic style of practice working with ‘at risk’ and disadvantaged groups within the community.
In my spare time, I love to cook, enjoy hunting out new cafes, scavenging for bargains in the local Op Shops and enjoying the darkest chocolate I can find!
Style of yoga taught: Alignment based Iyengar/Hatha/Purna. Combining movement, breathe and mindfulness.
Yay Yoga! Ok so the question, “what style do you teach?” I say General alignment based Hatha. As all asana yoga is Hatha, I mix it up a bit, very much depending on what my students are up for.
Over the decades I have managed to injure myself in various ways so I try to bring awareness to students about their own bodies and ask them not to hurt themselves in class and let’s not try to be instagram models.
I don’t say listen to your body, as many people will hear “MORE Chocolate”….hey me too. So I try and get people to feel their bodies. I ask that they be kind to themselves.
My interests are far and wide and I have done many different kinds of work. I have lit the NGV, I also work with dogs, I used to cook in cafes, and I studied fine art. There is more and I could continue for weeks on this, but I won’t.

The pop up is a new membership benefit we are trialing. It is designed to support our members who have recently completed their teacher training and looking to gain confidence in their teaching in a safe and supportive environment.
Some information on the pop up initiative:
· We only accept applications from Provisional members and Level 1 members. You are invited to participate in 1 term (10 weeks) with 2 classes max per week. Class times are highly restrictive as the space is located within our office space.
· We are doing this to help new teachers to gain confidence in teaching and to develop an understanding of the business side of yoga.
· The program is a Not for Profit program designed to give access to yogis of all walks of life. Any money we generate from this goes to the teachers, pop up development and charities.
