I found the practice of Yoga and meditation in my early 20’s with Yoga in Daily Life in Brisbane in 1998. I started practicing yoga there as an antidote to the pressures of modern living; I also had a strong yearning to learn more about the art of living well. Since then, I have drawn on the wisdom of many teachers from varied yogic traditions.
I received a BA and PGD in Psychology and spent a number of years working in clinical medical research, counselling, art therapy, community activist and support roles before becoming a yoga instructor.
I am particularly interested in combining approaches from Western psychology; and seeing the potential of Yoga as a healing modality. Yoga and meditation are great tools for dealing with all of life’s challenges. We have the greatest powers to heal ourselves. Nature, the arts, music and sound are all brilliant healing tools as well.
I offer compassion and support to students who want to experience a body-based transformation process. From personal experience, when you slow down, connect inwards, and listen to your heart and body’s wisdom, you have a clearer picture of what you need to be your most vital and peaceful self. My intention is to create a space for my students where judgements and distractions can be let go. Not only that, but to bring a sense of play; we all need play!
Off the mat, I often have a book in hand! I like listening to music, creative work with paints and pens, forest rambling, ocean swims, travel and living my yoga with my husband and two kids who give me strong foundations.
I initially qualified as a Hatha Vinyasa yoga instructor in 2015 with the fantastic team at My Health Yoga. I’m dedicated to ongoing education and have been fortunate to learn from wonderful teachers including Tam James (YogaPhysio), Simon-Borg Olivier (Yoga Synergy), Clive Sheridan, Nicky Knoff, Simon Marocco, Jamie Denham and Lorraine Rushton. I am a Level 1 YA member, as well as a qualified childrens’ yoga teacher.
“That which we seek, is already present within us”
I believe yoga is much more than just the world’s best system for staying healthy. The practices and philosophies of yoga energize your body, mind and soul and lead to a deep inner happiness. Although I started practicing yoga 30 years ago, it was in 2012 when I began attending daily yoga classes that I truly experienced the full benefits of yoga and discovered changes happening on the inside. My teacher training began in 2015 with the completion of over 100 hours of “immersion” in an Anusara-based system under Julie Smerdon. In 2017 I completed a further 250 hours in a Vinyasa system under Jacqui Sellers. I started teaching yoga classes in 2016 with a style that combines alignment and flow with a sprinkling of philosophy.
Helen has been practising yoga for six years, gravitating towards vinyasa yoga for its flowing style and the way it encourages a moving meditation. While she initially started yoga to experience its physical benefits, it wasn’t long before she started to appreciate a deep sense of calm, groundedness and contentment during her practice. Yoga has helped her deal with tough times off the mat, and she loves the way it offers a way to connect her body, breath and mind. Helen has recently completed her vinyasa yoga training at Brisbane Yoga Space and is excited to share her love of yoga with others.
Maitha has dabbled in yoga since she was a small child, when she used to watch TV in shoulder stand. She has practiced on and off for years but only became really serious about it after she had her second child. Maitha loves the union of mind, body and breath that you get from a regular yoga practice and most importantly, strives to help others achieve their yoga goals through a sense of Lila (fun) and joy, on and off the mat.
She recently graduated from level one vinyasa training at Brisbane Yoga Space.
