‘Start exactly where you are. Come to class as you are. I started my yoga journey very stiff and lacked body awareness. Through consistent practice, you can develop the space and know that movement will follow. I am all about moving the way your body craves or intends to move and lastly, try to please leave the ego at the door.’

‘Pilates is about creating the right kind of body, strong and toned and free from pain. I didn’t have a “pilates body” before I started and everyone needs to start somewhere. So no matter how out of shape you feel, you can improve on that and once you commit to 1 or 2 classes a week you will be addicted like me! Pilates has lots of modifications for all levels so whether you are a beginner or you want a challenge, we can accommodate for you!’
Lauren teaches Pilates but is currently on Maternity leave.
‘I teach modern western yoga. I am continually learning, always a student when it comes to yoga philosophies. Since moving to Sydney, I have explored more seasonal yoga and Japanese yoga, which has made me supremely happy. That’s what I love about yoga – no two classes are the same, it’s creative and original, even if it’s the same class, it’s never the same class.’
Shannon teaches Yang to Yin and Vinyasa.
‘Yoga is not just about the physical practice, the yoga pose is not the goal, becoming flexible is not the goal, standing on your head is not the goal. The goal is to create some space where you once were stuck and stiff. To soften the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart. To love and appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are. The goal is to love, to love others, but most especially to love yourself.’
