Petra

Petra’s meeting with the ancient path of Yoga began over a decade ago. This mysterious path lead Petra through a process of deconstruction and creation, self-inquiry, healing and awakening.

Through devotion, studies, curious exploration and passion to be in service Petra was initiated into the path of Yoga, healing and women’s mysteries.

Her offering on the mat is to guide human beings to embody the language of the body and the wisdom that each one of us carry within our hearts by weaving together the ancient practice of Yoga and her devotion and connection with the teachings from nature and native wisdom.
Her teachings invite the opportunities to evolve together in community, transcending duality and remembering how to walk with respect, integrity, purpose, clarity and kindness on the Earth.

In co creation with the earth Petra holds breathwork, cacao ceremonies and women’s rituals. She is a doula in training and passionate about supporting women in reclaiming their essence through feminine embodiment, conscious movement and ceremonies.

Sophie Ntoumenopoulos

Yoga Instructor, Pilates Instructor & Reiki practitioner

I have always been exposed to Yoga, the breath and Pilates throughout life, but it came to me at a time in need when I was living in London. From there, my passion for Yoga transformed from a focus not just on the asanas (physical practice) to prevent the fickleness of my mind, but on the breath, meditation and the philosophy behind it. Which has now become a way of life for me. In my Yoga classes, I enjoy teaching a class mixed with Yin and Yang, a strong yet slow creative Vinyasa flow that is also nurturing and fluid. I incorporate elements of Pilates into my classes to strengthen the core and warm the belly and spine, thus creating a strong foundation for physical practice.

My passion for Pilates came from a temperamental hamstring injury and the power of Pilates served me well in getting me back on track and learning the importance of balancing flexibility with strength and it is now a part of my daily practice. My Pilates classes aim to fuse the elements of traditional Pilates with functional-full body fitness. I focus on building up the burn with total body conditioning whilst taking the time to get the correct alignment and using the breath as a guide. I ensure that there is a balance of the breath, strength, nourishment, stillness, silence and rest in my Pilates classes, which you may not find in a traditional class.

Sherrie Laryse

Sherrie Laryse is a teacher and mentor with a background of 10+ years studying and working in human behaviour, neuro linguistics, grief, trauma, psychosomatics, mental illness, yoga and mindfulness.

In consulting with clients, as well as applying everything she’s learned along the way to her own life, Sherrie has positioned herself a leading teacher on how to process our experiences – our external environment – in order to control our emotions, our health and our state of being -our internal environment.

Tash Talevski

Tash comes from an experienced background in Personal Training, with a depth of anatomical knowledge. Submerged in the world of health and fitness from a young age, she quickly developed a love and fascination of the human vessel.

Movement through space, with awareness on breath, became profound and necessary tools in her journey toward self-exploration and transformation. In her quest to deepen this inner exploration, Tash eventually found herself living in Mexico at the Hridaya Yoga Centre. Here, immersed in a yogic lifestyle and the traditional Hatha teachings, was the start of her ongoing yoga journey. She has since completed multiple trainings, taught in retreats overseas and continues to inquire with awe into the nature of the human organism.

Tash believes much of our “knowing” has been limited to the brain alone, where many aspects of ourselves cannot be truly met. She draws from her coaching background, in-depth anatomical knowledge and diverse movement education, to guide her students through an integrated practice of conscious anatomical and energetic explorations in order to deepen the Mind-Body experience.

She views each movement practice as a portal for conscious connection with our self and the world around us, and aims to inspire in her students a curiosity of the self – to feel, taste and honour each breath, and subtle bodily sensation as a gateway into revelation.

Acacia Grant

For Acacia, she first discovered the sweet sensations of savasana in a year 9 P.E yoga class.

Once in her 20’s Acacia began to understand the importance of the practice. Her own health and wellbeing had improved so much and she noticed that the practice was leading her towards a more peaceful experience beyond the times she spent on her mat. Once she felt this she knew the magic needed to be shared.

Acacia has completed teacher training with Power Living, 200 hours and also Advanced Teacher Training. She completed more training in Sydney with Simon Park and then spent time scrubbing floors and chanting in an Indian Ashram. She has taken endless workshops and days are filled practising the philosophies of Yoga.

Acacia’s classes are filled with the knowledge gained from all of her life’s experiences.
Her most important teachers being nature and her 2 daughters.

Her aim is to make Yoga accessible and relatable to life, to help people find ease in chaos and to find what their own version of healthy is.

Acacia integrates the physical practice with breath and encourages people to be present and connected. She will support you and guide you through the class with respect and humility.

Her personal practice is focused towards distilling her natural energy into breath, movement and flow, finding a space within that allows for growth.

She is a student of Chiropractic Science and loves applying her knowledge of anatomy into creative flows.

Olly brings a steadiness to her teaching with attention to alignment and strong, slow poses while encouraging movement that feels good!

Laural’s journey with yoga began 10 years ago when her now husband introduced her to the Asana practice.

What started as an initial form of physical exercise eventually expanded beyond the physical leading to a deeper understanding of herself.

Yoga has since been a consistent ritual in Laural’s life and continues to help her feel more at home within herself, while also giving her tools to help navigate the challenges that come along with everyday life.
