Karren has been a practitioner of Yoga since the late 90’s. She came to Yoga first to relieve the physical pain of sciatica and knew this was the path she must follow. Years of exploring various styles of Yoga led to her first training in Hatha Yoga in 2008, she began teaching in 2009.
In the following years her interest in the therapeutic aspects of Yoga grew, the ability to heal through the practice was something she was extremely curious about. After two years travelling overseas, Karren returned in 2014 to embark on a three year post graduate diploma in Yoga Therapy with one of the most accomplished teachers in this field, Dr. N. Chandrasekaran, in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya. In recent years, Karren has completed hundreds of hours of training in Traditional Hatha Yoga, enjoying the immersion of study and the opportunity for personal growth and evolution. Humbled to always be a student, Karren continues to study Yoga Philosophy, Sanskrit and Vedic Chanting, with a particular interest in the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, which is often the inspiration behind her class themes. Her dedication to her own daily practice and the choice to live life according to the principles of Yoga shine through in her life and her classes. It is her hope, as a teacher, to inspire and hold space for all to enjoy their own experience.
Being informed by everything she has learned along the way, Sally’s yoga practice is a dance that invites fluidity, aliveness and totality to the body, mind and spirit. A dance that guides us back home to our authentic and natural state of being.
I fell in love with yoga when I was 16 and went to my first class while living in the Yarra Valley Victoria. I later moved to Edithvale , Bayside Victoria and started practising yoga on the beach, on the sand nearly every day.
A practitioner for 16 years, Mercia’s passion for teaching lies in facilitating connection and integration of the body and mind, deepening awareness, and supporting people in feeling comfortable and at home.
Mercia fell in love with yoga at a young age, when she was a competitive swimmer in New Zealand and yoga was used for rehabilitation and functional healing. From there began a long journey of diving into the intricacies of the human body. With a Degree in Zoology, Physiology and Nutrition, she is excited by the mechanics of the human body, as well as the incredible healing power of movement, meditation, and connection to community.
For the last 5 years she has been travelling overseas, with yoga as a powerful anchoring tool wherever she goes. Now settled in the Sunshine Coast, Mercia loves to support others in cultivating safety in their body to build resilience independent of external circumstances.
A huge advocate for taking Yoga beyond the physical asana, Mercia promotes yoga through mindfulness, ethics, discipline and developing intuition and connection to what our body is communicating with us. As well as a solid sense of humour and a reminder not to take ourselves too seriously! She loves the dynamic nature of yoga, from practices of strong, powerful Hatha and Vinyasa to a soft, gentle Yin and breath practices. Because life is all about duality!
With years of study in the realms of energetics and anatomy, she teaches with a deep understanding of energetics, breath and embodiment — incorporating story-telling and philosophy to create a felt experience of connection on all layers. She believes the practice to be a full body mudra in celebration of life – one that illuminates every cell of the being to come alive. She teaches from the heart — as an extension of her own devotion to the practice, to help guide you home to the deep wisdom that lies within you, within a safe container where all feel free to express, to move and to be in the totality of their humanness.

Sally came to yoga after suffering burn out from many years of working full time, studying as a mature aged student at university and raising a family and not applying self-care to her life.

She did a 7-day challenge shortly after and continued this practice for many years as a daily practice.
Sally has also practiced other forms of yoga including flow, yin and anything else she could throw herself in the path of. Sally began to study yoga as a practice and uncover parts of herself that were previously hidden.
She wanted to learn more and booked a teacher training then another the following year and has not stopped learning and studying since and plans to continue. Sally is certified in hot yoga, Yin, traditional Tantric Hatha including philosophy and Ayurveda and flow styles.

Sat Nam! My name is Jana, I’m a 500-hour certified Kundalini and Hatha Yoga teacher from Germany. During my years at Uni I began a regular meditation and Yoga practice which helped me so much in dealing with stress and anxiety. I was looking for meaning and purpose in life and got drawn to learn more about Yogic philosophy, meditation as well as shamanic practices.
After finishing my degree in Linguistics in 2018, I went to travel India, deepened my meditation practice and completed my first Yoga teacher training in Hatha Yoga. Instead of getting a job after my India trip, I left everything behind and went to South America on a one-way ticket and ended up staying in many Yoga hostels in different countries to teach daily classes. I have lived a more or less nomadic life for around 5 years, always with my Yoga mat strapped to my backpack! In 2019 I accidentally walked into my first Kundalini Yoga class, not knowing what it was. Honestly, at first I thought it was so weird, all these unfamiliar and fast movements, intense breathing exercises, high energy Mantras and different meditations to what I was used to. But this first class had left me feeling so clear, recharged and light (because I had a lot of emotions coming up during the practice) that it got me hooked immediately. I started to learn more about this type of Yoga and in late 2020 signed up for a 3-months intensive training for Kundalini Yoga. Today, both Kundalini and Hatha Yoga are a big part of my life, which I’m very grateful for. As a teacher, I am here to assist you in your Yoga Journey and healing process, guide you through beautiful, fun and challenging Kriyas and hold space for you in any way I can. I’m looking forward to connecting with you! Love, Jana
Connection with oneself through movement has always been a pivotal interest for Rani. A dancer since young, she began teaching Belly Dance, Hip hop and Bachata classes in her early teens and was first drawn to yoga to improve her enduance and flexibility. The clarity and deep connection she experienced after each class was profound.
