Mel

Mel

She/Her

Mel started practicing yoga in 2013, when she finally discovered a form of exercise she actually enjoyed! She gained a broad experience of various styles (including Iyengar, Hatha, and Modern Vinyasa) while practicing at studios in Sydney, Perth, New York and Indonesia.

She soon realised the benefits of yoga, not just for our bodies, but also our minds, and set a goal to open a yoga studio to share these benefits with others.

She completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Stefan Camilleri Yoga, and has continued her quest for knowledge, becoming a Yoga Detour-Informed Teacher and undertaking training in Chair Yoga.

Mel has a strong focus on functional movement and safety when teaching her modern, fun, music-driven classes. She loves to create an atmosphere where her students are challenged and yet truly floating on air by the end of the class.

JB

JB

He/Him

When Mel first asked JB to come along to a yoga class, he baulked. He worried he was too tall, too inflexible, too awkward, and people would laugh if he couldn’t do some of the poses. He soon realised that no one is looking at you in a yoga class - everyone else is just trying not to fall over as well!

Yoga had such an incredibly positive impact on his mind and his body. He soon knew he wanted to become a teacher and share it with other people as well - especially those who might feel the same way he felt before his first class.

JB has a strong focus on safe, functional yoga, and supporting beginners to feel comfortable and confident in their practice. His unexpected quips will get you giggling, while his dulcet tones will lull you in to total relaxation.

JB has trained in alignment-based Vinyasa, Yin, and functional movement-based yoga.

There is nothing Kat enjoys more than speaking about energy, Chakras, meridians and current energy forecasting in an easy to follow and down to earth way.

Kat is always keen to further her skills and personal practice through continued education to keep her work evolving and fresh. She truly believes we never stop learning and there is still more to discover.

She is a tea and gin drinking practitioner who lives in the Perth hills with her two teenage daughters. She loves to laugh (mostly at herself), and talk about philosophy, the meaning of life + death, far away galaxies, adventures, fears and failures. She's in love with life and hopes that after living a full and happy life she dies of laughter!

Helen is equal parts science and woo-woo, combining Neuroscience, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Reiki and Yoga. Helen specialises in trauma, anxiety and pain management and acknowledges Yoga as a powerful tool to assist in healing our mind, body and soul.
