Ali originally studied Exercise Science, then post graduate nutritional medicine and has over 15 years’ experience in the Health and Fitness industry. She has worked with individuals from the novice to the elite – including work with Australian professional cyclists for the season leading to the Tour de France, featuring on 2UE as nutrition expert and writing articles for Ride Media and Cyclist Magazine. A horrible cycling accident led Ali to start practising yoga….which led to her new passion of sharing yoga, health and wellbeing…everything happens for a reason, right? She loves dynamic and flowing classes (think Shiva Rea, Simon Park, Dylan Werner) and being a new mama has taught her the power of prenatal, yin and slower paced classes. Ali’s classes are creative, nurturing and challenging, and she believes that cultivating your practice in the good times will get you through the hard times.
Kaz first discovered Yoga 30 years ago in her 20s, backpacking, meditating on beaches, living off lentils …. you get the picture!
Kaz has lived and raised her kids in Kiama, and after a lifechanging accident she committed to a daily practice of Yoga. She is a Certified Level 1 and (almost) Level 2 Yoga Teacher, and is Yin, meditation and Acroyoga/Partner yoga trained.
Her teaching is influenced by Hatha Flow, Vinyasa & Yin styles, holding tradition with intelligent, nurturing and energizing classes with the power of the breath and most importantly the intention and emphasis on taking Yoga off the mat, into your day and into your life.
Kaz believes Yoga is truly for everyone, every age and everybody. She feels privileged teaching Yoga and it makes her heart sing when she gets to witness the magic that unfolds within our community of Yogis here in Kiama
Lauren is a passionate Hatha yoga and kids yoga teacher. Like many of us, Lauren has also personally experienced yoga’s many benefits, such as healing a serious back injury 10 years ago, to helping her juggle life as a busy mum of three young kids, and to gaining a sense of deep inner peace.
She believes everyone can benefit from yoga, no matter where you’re currently at with your fitness (including mental fitness!). her classes are taught from the heart: creating an encouraging, calm and non-judgmental environment. There is no competition in yoga –your practice is solely for you.
Dan completed his certificate IV in yoga teaching at Byron Yoga Centre and has been developing his personal practice over the last 10 years. He is especially chilled and brings a sense of calm to all his classes.
His hope is to have you stepping off your mat refreshed, calm and happy.
