“If you want to indulge your senses & stretch your body at the same time, RESTorative Yoga on Sunday is the solution! Her voice is beautifully modulated & restful giving clear instructions. The head massage & the reading, often written by Chloe, leads one to come away fully refreshed. I can recommend with our reservation”. June

”What a blessing it is & how lucky to have Sandy & the wonderful yoga teachers at her studio. It was so uplifting & energizing this mornings 6am flow with Sandy so good to be back after the break! l am really looking forward to Phoebe's class tomorrow night at 6.30pm what a treat her classes are! everyweek its different, l love her cool slow flow , the way she releases those tight little knots you didnt know were there & then ends the class with her beautiful pure & sweet voice that releases you into a deep savasana, pure Bliss!”. Lyndel

About US


Sandy remembers her first classes with feelings of total relaxation, stillness & quiet & that something very special had been introduced to her.   With years of regular practice, finally committing to beginners level classes in 2008.  At this time she was introduced to the ISHTA system meeting her teacher who introduced her to many books, workshops, trainings giving her the tools for study both on & off the mat.  Realising that Yoga was much more that a physical workout, she began learning more of the teachings of Yoga,  the Essence of the practice, pranayama, asana & meditation.  Sandy she completed her level 1, 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2015 with Lainie Jenkins Owner of One Family Yoga and Fitness.  

She has since completed Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings with world renowned Jo Phee Yin Yoga (Chinese Medicine & Hip Anatomy, Myofascia Release Therapy & Spine Anatomy) further training on the spine with Donna Farhi & completed Levels 1 & 2 Restorative Yoga Training.  White Tiger Qi Gong training with Tevia Feng in Bali. Sandy teaches to each student as unique individuals, allowing them to adjust & readjust their own bodies, for safe individual alignment - teaching we are all different, skeletally, physically & emotionally. She continues to improve her knowledge & practice including various workshops, trainings, including travelling to Bali regularly where she immerses herself in the wealth of knowledge thru amazing teachers she revisits.  

Sandy is passionate about her craft & holistic health, encourages her students to notice how their practice makes them FEEL, cultivating mindfulness, strength & wellbeing, travelling with them along their yogic journey.



Catas journey began in 2002 when she moved from her home country Colombia, South America.  She recalls her first beginner's class the amazing feeling of a mindfulness & being present in the moment, was the catalytic point that made her explore more about ancient practices & holistic health.  In 2006, she completed the Usui Reiki Method of Energy Renewal.  Digging deep into the teachings of Yoga, to understand the deep essence of practice, asana, pranayama & meditation, studying the Yoga-sutras which offers her a proud perspective on the functioning of our minds and giving precise methods to increase balance & vitality.  Cata completed her level 1, 200 hour yoga certification with Being Yoga Australia.  she has undergone trainings with world renowned teachers, Simon Borg-Olivier and Donna Farhi.  Cata loves sharing her passion for yoga & welcomes everybody in her classes to cultivate an open mind, a willing heart in a journey that begins with just a deep breath in.



Phoebe is a teacher with a wealth of experience, both instructing & practicing for many years.  She has a background in nutrition & a deep interest in health promotion, natural movement & stress management, combining her knowledge of yoga, mindfulness & nutrition to help people achieve balanced, accessible health.  Phoebe's yoga classes incorporate fluid & natural movement, traditional yoga asana & breath work with mindful awareness, which come together to create a state of deep relaxation & presence.  As a mother, Phoebe knows how difficult it can be to add anything more to a busy life & she aims to keep her teaching simple & welcoming, this is yoga for everybody.



Jess is an experienced yoga teacher, gaining her qualifications in 2011 at My Health Yoga. Her background in massage adds to her yoga teaching. Use of anatomical knowledge, special orthopaedic testing & range of motion as required, allows her to safely teach those who have injury & or illness. Qualifications in haha/vinyasa, trauma aware yoga, restorative yoga plus remedial massage enable Jess to deliver a class that is unique & informative.

Her classes use an ample amount of props, concise queuing with anatomical information delivered in an easy to understand manner. Jess’s gentle adjustments help students learn about their bodies & how to use it effectively with alignment that is relevant to their own ability.

Students describe classes as fun, diverse & educational. They love the extra touches she adds, such as massage, hot stones & arm chair shavasana. Students describe Jess are caring, as she connects with them creating a relaxed class environment.

Whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, seeking a stretch or a little peace of mind, Jess’s class will have something for you.


Claudia teaches embodiment. Her classes are designed to help people be in their bodies & to develop the awareness with the ability to remain present for all of the physical sensations, emotional fluctuations and thought formations that bubble up through the layers of the mind-body during their practice.

Claudia guides students in refining their sensitivity & ability to listen to what is happening in their body. To use the breath to clear away the contractions & tightness they feel and the light of their awareness to peel back the layers of conditioning so that they can begin to experience with more clarity who they really are.


All Bea’s classes are based on a holistic approach ideal for balancing the body - breath - mind. A dynamic yet gentle approach, Bea blends body & breath awareness with physical poses, visualisations & relaxation techniques, through slow & nourishing sequences. Suitable for all ages & levels of experience. Always tailored to each person, ideal for preventing injuries, offering modifications if needed. Bea’s teachings “styles” are a mesh of slow flow vinyasa, basic principals of alignment, fluidity & stillness.

HATHA - General Class

Hatha includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.Moving with mindfulness and focus on the breathe.  Suitable for beginners who can focus on body awareness and positioning, whilst those more seasoned students can slow down, FEEL more in to their practice whilst building strength.  Options always offered to all levels, which will lead you feeling strong, refreshed, connected and calm.


Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga.  In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath.  Vinyasa is more of an active moving practice where students will build strength, flexibility and concentration while cleansing the body and calming the mind.



A gentle form of yoga that can be practiced by anyone, beginners or advanced students.  Serving to bring more flex, musculoskeletal and emotional release, quieting the mind, taking time focussing on the breath, holding supported poses that can be adapted to suit mobility together using blankets, bolsters, blocks etc. A reenergising practice, deep, quiet, leaving you FEEL amazing!


Working the deeper tissues, ligaments, joints and deep fascia, Yin goes beyond asana movements.  It is a silent, yielding, deep and nourishing practice, helping us to gain contentment.   Holding postures for longer periods of time, bringing students into mindfulness, helping physiologically, energetically, mentally/emotionally, reducing stress and enhancing overall wellbeing.  Leaving you FEELING calm, grounded, centred and serene.  All our bodies are different, Yin explores and liberates these differences. This is functional yoga at its best, not all bodies are the same, no student the same.
Yin is IN !


Combining both deep stretching & flowing elements in one class provides a balanced practice and can have a powerful effect on energy levels.  Always incorporating breath work, strengthening & lengthening the whole body, finishing with relaxation, leaving you feel open, energised & calm.


In this special class expect to experience the profound effects of the mix of Myofascia release (MFR) and Yin yoga.

MFR is a hands-on technique that involves using myofascia balls plus the use of blocks to apply gentle sustained pressure into the connective tissue to reduce pain and restore motion. This will stimulate the bodies natural response and start working on the “issues in the tissues”.

This is combined with a yin practice to complement the Myfoascical work done during the practice.

Think of it like a Deep Tissue Massage – you will leave the class feeling more open and free.

Please hydrate well after class.


A yoga class for those newer to yoga or those wanting a basic flow class.  Although this class moves at a slower pace than the other classes, expect to be challenged both mentally and physically.  This class will help students to become more aware of their bodies, the use of their breath whilst building on their physical practice.   Fundamentals classes will bring you back to the basics, teaching the fundamentals of basic poses and transitions that you will find in the general Hatha classes.
