Amelia Disspain


Registered Senior Teacher


Registered Senior Teacher


Amelia was first introduced to yoga while studying Fine Arts at the National Art School in Sydney in 1999. Inspired by the joy and serenity it brought her, Amelia began a regular practice before going on to complete her teacher training with Samadhi Bliss Yoga, Sydney in 2002.

Amelia taught Yoga full time at Samadhi Bliss in Newtown until she was selected to undertake a one on one  teacher training in 2006 with Simon Borg Olivier and Bianca Machliss of Yoga Synergy Sydney, one of the few schools left in Australia still instructing teachers in this traditional way.

Amelia taught as a senior level teacher at Yoga Synergy Sydney until 2013 when she relocated to Bellingen and now runs her own studio YogaBellingen, teaching classes from the main pavilion int he Bellingen Showgrounds 

Yoga Bellingen teaches Yoga Synergy style yoga. Yoga Synergy style has been developed over 30 years by experienced yoga practitioners and physiotherapists Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss. It incorporates asanas (poses and postures), vinyasa (exercises) and pranayama (breathing control) and meditation. It’s a dynamic, moving meditation, which links specific yoga postures performed in sequence, with specific breathing patterns. This style of yoga is very effective in developing strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, increasing energy and the ability to deal with stress. All postures have a simple and a more challenging version so – whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, and depending on how you feel on the day – you’ll be able to choose the level of difficulty that suits you.
