All classes are taught in the Iyengar yoga tradition, with an emphasis on alignment and structure using props such as blocks, straps and bolsters when needed. These props allow people with limited flexibility and/or experience to get the most out of the various postures.
Patrick, Eleneth and Susan have all studied with various senior Australian and overseas teachers. They have also studied at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune India. It takes a minimum of three years to become a certified Iyengar yoga teacher.
Patrick has been practising Iyengar yoga for 26 years and teaching since 2001. From 1997-2019 years Patrick has worked full time as a naturopath and remedial massage therapist, Patrick has also done a Masters of Occupational Therapy. He is currently working full time in Occupational rehabilitation. This experience, along with his yoga practice, helps him to communicate with yoga students how to work intelligently to avoid many common problems he has experienced over the years.
Patrick regularly runs local and international workshops and retreats along with conducting anatomy classes for yoga teacher trainers.
Eleneth has practised yoga since she was a teenager and it has sustained her through a variety of work environments and pregnancies! She enjoys the feeling of well-being, flexibility and strength which her practice delivers and is amazed that she is still learning and constantly finding new challenges in her practice even after nearly 40 years!
Her classes are not about how flexible you are, or how high you can raise your leg. Rather, they offer you an opportunity to extend yourself, both physically and mentally, in a guided and supportive way, and to find a sense of peace and relaxation. She hopes that you too can explore here all that yoga offers.
