“I believe in living a life full of joy, gratitude, creativity, and free of judgement. These values inform and guide my core teachings and practices. I’ve always been passionate about music and movement. After working an office job in music marketing and promotions, I left the 9-5 to go travelling. When I arrived back home in Sydney, I fell into a job at a local gym and began teaching pilates and group fitness classes. It was during that time I found a passion in empowering people to feel good through music and movement.
Everything shifted when I moved to Melbourne and discovered yoga. It taught me self discipline and self care, and helped forge a deeper connection to myself that I didn’t realise was possible. This practice is pure magic, and I feel incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to share it with you.” – Amy
Nat is extremely passionate about helping you feel embodied and empowered in your yoga practice.

“As a former dancer and cheerleader I have always had a passion for movement and teaching. In my 20’s I experimented with a number of different careers; Myotherapist, Dance & Cheer coach/studio owner, Secondary School Teacher… and that’s to just name a few! Due to Dance & Cheer I started to develop injuries and therefore was searching for something that would heal my body but also my mind. After my first yoga class, I was hooked. Since finding yoga, my life has been transformed on many levels. I am incredibly grateful to lead you on this yoga path and share my story and teachings with you.” – Nat

Your yoga practice is nothing to stress about. We have students of all levels and all walks of life join us for our teacher training. Many students join for different reasons, each one just as valid as the next. It’s not so much about how much preparation goes into your practice before the training, it’s more about making the space during the training for you to absorb as much as possible and to be consistent and dedicated in your approach. That way you really get the most out of your teacher training experience and learn to be truly present in all you do both on and off the mat. This is just the beginning of your journey and we’ve got your back!
No problem! Our training is carefully designed for those who want to deepen their practice as well as for those students who wish to become teachers themselves.
As a student you will develop your own practice, you’ll learn a lot about yoga, you’ll meet epic like minded friends, and you’ll have a deep personal growth and fulfilment.

Our 200-Hour Yoga Alliance® accredited training will delve deep into philosophy, asana, sequencing, pranayama, anatomy, meditation and business.
The training framework and length allows you to ingest and digest the full yogic experience. Each weekend session (module) will include a variety of topics interwoven from those below.

You’ll dive deep into the classical alignment of fundamental yoga poses, and gain an in-depth understanding of the classical yogic techniques to advance your own practice and leave ready to progress from student to teacher.
