Join Me On The Mat



Each Sunday I run a Yin Yoga class from 8:45 – 10:00am from the Level 1 (lowest level) at Manly Scout Hall, Ivanhoe Park, behind the oval

Yoga changed my life and I felt a need to teach what I have learnt from many of the amazing teachers that have inspired me.

We will start with a Yin Yoga class and finish with a Yoga Nidra or another beautiful meditation 

This format may change from week to week, as we start to explore different types of yoga and meditation

All are welcome from beginners to seasoned Yogi’s 

To sign up you can select the link below or you can turn up on the day.

If you have a yoga mat, block, bolster, please bring those as unfortunately we don’t have many props available at this stage

Can’t wait to see you on the Mat!

The styles of yoga that I teach are as follows..

Yin Yoga

  • Yin yoga is similar to Restorative yoga in that you hold postures for 3 to 5 mins.
  • The difference with Yin is that you are finding your edge in the postures to the point where you know you are working. 
  • You are also working with the meridians lines to assist with the flow of blood and energy in the body.
  • In Yin you are not building up muscles you are working with the Connective Tissues / Fascia

Restorative Yoga

  • Restorative yoga is a deep relaxation practice where students are guided into postures and are encouraged to finding the most comfortable position in the posture. 
  • Muscles are not being worked and also, you are not working with the Connective Tissues / Fascia

Hatha Yoga

  • Can be Gentle, Medium, Strong. Postures are held up to 5 breaths and is a great way to start your yoga journey as it allows you to focus on good posture and alignment (Foundations) and the breath

Yoga Nidra

  • Deep relaxation practice. 10 to 30mins
  • Student lie in Shavasana (on their back) and close their eyes and listen to the guided meditation.
  • This can be run as a standalone practice of at the end of all the above practise, except for Vinyasa Flow

Pranayama & Meditation

  • Pranayama & Meditation are traditional, foundation yoga practices that help transition you into a more centred relaxed state. The practices bring awareness to the breath and this can also include mantras (repeated words or sounds). These practices can be preformed by themselves or at any time during a Yoga practice 

Where I Teach

  • Currently I’m teaching Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra at Manly Scout Hall on Sundays at 8:45am and plan doing several more class there in new year
    I also teach Hatha Yoga and Yoga flow (Vinyasa) classes when providing cover for other teachers.
