Tracey is total fan of feeling good from the inside out. She relish es in the great outdoors and the beautiful environment we live in. Her love for living life to the fullest grew from finding personal strength from wihtin when life throws you obstacles and successfully dragging yourself through these ebb and flows.

Tracey uses her yoga practice to find space to find strength and patience to move forwards and slowly heal mind and body.

Practicing yoga for over two decades and her natural teacher personality drove her to embark upon the self-investigative journey and studies of the essence of yoga. Tracey’s studies are based on Krishnamacharya Classic Hatha Tradition, awarding her with a deep 500+ hour Accreditation. Combining her love for the human body with a degree in more Western Human Physiology and Chemistry teachings with a more Eastern understandings of the body has given her a wealth of knowledge surrounding how your body works and how to deliver Yoga safely to others, from beginners to the experienced.

And as part of the ongoing commitment to Yoga, our studies never really cease, we just keep learning more.

The Yoga bit: maintaining my ability to keep up with my family, work and life’s rollercoaster!

Charlotte started her yoga journey with a strong physical practice however with time, further study and motherhood her yoga practice has become less focused on the physical body. As a teacher, Charlotte delivers a balanced class focusing on quietening the mind, physical strength and relaxation. Her intention is to share her knowledge and experience of yoga, and to encourage self-reflection.

After nearly 20 years of personal yoga practice Charlotte knows that with yoga, significant positive changes happen over a period of time; and that yoga is a great support in navigating the challenges of daily life.

Bec discovered Yoga while living in tropical North Queensland. What started as going along to a class with a friend for some exercise quickly turned into a practice that became part of her regular self-care. Bec was used to wearing ‘busy’ as a badge of honour, and stress was a normal part of her day. She fell in love with how calming and healing Yoga was. It was like Yoga was the permission slip Bec was waiting for to get back to basics – the mind, body & breath.

Bec enrolled in Teacher Training initially to delve deeper into her own practice, but felt called to share the teachings and help others like Yoga had helped her. She began teaching as soon as she graduated and has since delved into leading classes, Workshops and Beginner Yoga Courses. Bec continues to expand on her own knowledge and experience through trainings, her Teachers and Mentorships to provide the most transformational experience for her students possible.

Never having been naturally gifted with flexibility or coordination, Bec is passionate about holding space for her students to show up on the mat, as they are, without judgement. She invites her students to go beyond just the physical and practice in a way that serves them. Her Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga classes are the perfect way to unwind, relax and rest from the busyness of everyday life.
