Yoga Instructor

21 years ago I qualified to teach Yoga – back then Yoga was not as popular or as accepted as it is now – so I was considered somewhat “unusual”.

Daily exercise has been part of my life for as long as I can remember – My Father was seriously into his own fitness and into the training of others – so as soon as I could keep up I joined in – and the rest as they say is History.

I can still remember teaching my first ever Yoga class – It was at Redcliffe – I was so nervous that I had to ask the class to close their eyes whilst I took some deep breaths and got my s**t together – eventually courage prevailed! – Thankfully I have mastered and overcome this to enjoy every aspect and privilege that teaching offers.

For the last 10 years I have been living on Stradbroke Island where I had a little yoga studio
(What a privilege and a joy it was to teach those classes…)

Fast-forward to now – I discovered HIIT at Aloha Active and off I went to do my INFERNO HOT PILATES training.

Qualities I’ve personally experienced on my journey are

  • Humility
  • Self-Awareness
  • Courage
  • Strength
  • Presence
  • Surrender
  • Break-throughs and Break-downs

    Honestly the benefits aren’t limited to these; you’ll feel fantastic, look great and shine brighter than ever before…
    Power for your Body, Energy for your Soul and Wisdom for your Mind.

    I have done numerous teacher training courses, retreats, master-classes, workshops etc, here in Australia and Overseas. Always happy to share – just ask …

Yoga Instructor

“ My yoga practice inspires me to live a purposeful, mindful life. It creates a joy in my heart which i hope emanates through my classes.”

Joti completed her 200hour Vinyasa training in 2015 in Bali with international teacher, trainer and mentor Jolie Manza. In 2016 She then went on to complete an Advanced Vinyasa training through Power Living Australia with Duncan Peak and Cassie Lee. Each of these trainings had a strong foundation in anatomy, alignment and safety beautifully complemented with yogic philosophy, pranayama, meditation and connection with the subtle energy body.

Joti’s classes are dynamic with a strong focus on alignment and breath. With a background in dance her sequences are creative and engaging, helping students to find connection to mind, body and breath through intelligent, intuitive movement.

“Integrating asana and yogic principles into my life has helped me to become a strong, flexible, creative, compassionate guide in the art of transformation.”

Joti is a dedicated student of yoga and a passionate teacher. She has a cheeky vibrant sense of humour and employs it to find connection with her students.

Joti teaches ‘Power’ and ‘Yin’ yoga as well as our signature ‘Fusion’ class.

Yoga Instructor

“My yoga journey began almost 20 years ago, when I practiced my first yoga class at the local gym. I continued to practice here and there and felt fabulous! I had found the “yoga high!”

“In 2015 I completed my Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand, and recently have also completed my training in Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga. I enjoy the physical demands of Bikram Yoga, but also value the more relaxing meditative experience of Yin and Restorative Yoga.

“With a regular practice, yoga is my anchor and rock in this crazy world. For me yoga is not exercise, but a way of life.”

Nancy

Nancy

Yoga Instructor

Nancy began practicing Bikram Yoga in 2001 after being injured in a severe car crash while working undercover as a Police Officer. The accident left two of her discs in her spine bulging and pinching nerves, causing severe pain. The pain became so unbearable she was taking pain medication and muscle relaxers, as well as antidepressants, to deal with the loss of her job.

She discovered that with a regular practice of Bikram Yoga, she could live pain free without the use of pharmaceuticals and her world began to transform. In 2002, she became a Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor and found a new way to help people.

Whereas working most of her adult life as a Police Officer and Hostage Negotiator, she currently teaches yoga and is a comedic transformational speaker. Her adventurous spirit had led her to the dark side of law enforcement and undercover work, but wanting to hone those skills she discovered Theatre Arts as a natural fit.

Comedy and acting affected her approach to teaching yoga, and yoga freed her thinking leading to new age philosophies and transformation. She coaches people, that thinking and feeling creates your reality, and she finds ways to encourage people with the mind body connection of yoga. For example; if you control your breath, you control your body, if you control your body, you control your mind and thoughts that effect your life experience.
