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 practicing Iyengar yoga for 24 years and teaching since 2001. For the last 21 years Patrick has worked full time as a naturopath and remedial massage therapist. This experience along with his yoga practice, help him to communicate to yoga students how to work intelligently to avoid many common problems he treats daily in his clinic.
Patrick regularly offers local and international workshops and retreats along with conducting anatomy classes for yoga teacher trainers.
Susan has been an ardent yoga practitioner for over 10 years and has developed an understanding and awareness of the challenges faced by students. A trained primary school teacher, Susan strives to encourage and uplift her students. She has travelled extensively in India to further her interests in yoga, Indian culture, philosophy and Ayurvedic medicine.
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.
