Thy began practicing yoga over 15 years ago as a way to find calm and peace from the stresses of University, and everyday life. After her first yoga class (ashtanga), she felt amazing. Breathing, sweating, and fully living in the moment, she had never felt more connected to life.
Thy believes that the best part of teaching is learning; learning more about the postures, about people and their bodies, and more about herself. Her classes are fun and dynamic, with a sense of lightness. Her hope is that students carry their positive energy from practice, off their mats and into their daily lives.
Having begun practicing yoga in her teen years, Miya became a certified yoga teacher in 2011 and now also holds a Graduate Diploma in Yoga Therapy.
Miya’s teaching style is playful, challenging, peaceful, simple and everything in between. As a big believer in mindfulness and yoga as therapy, she strives to make yoga accessible to every being so that yogic philosophy can be applied to the twenty-first century lifestyle.
Initially introduced to yoga in 2012, Tam has been practicing on a regular basis and enjoys the self-awareness that yoga helps him cultivate both on and off the mat. For him, yoga is a transformational journey that occurs on a daily basis.
Tam loves to teach a strong, fluid and well balanced class that is also dynamic, and playful that includes purposeful sequences. His favourite sequences are ones that prepare students for handstands, inversions, & arm balances, and that are safely integrated into classes to build strength & confidence – ‘Emphasis is on the journey, rather the outcome’.
Joanna first fell in love with yoga at age 16. Ten years later, her dedication to the practise began to grow and evolve. It started to become clear that this was her life path. She embarked on her teaching journey in 2018.
Earlier this year, Joanna taught at a social enterprise for women’s empowerment in Cambodia. This experience challenged her in many ways, and expanded her view of yoga as a unifying practice across cultures. It also developed her creativity as a teacher.
In addition to teaching yoga, Joanna is also a Level II Reiki Practitioner, and a KaHuna Bodywork Therapist. These energetic practises inform her approach to yoga as a tool for healing in and of itself.
Ella first discovered yoga in her twenties while studying to be an actor. Working with movement and human energetics in her capacity as a performer and acting tutor for over a decade, yoga was an integral part of her arts practice.
Ella’s classes encourage mindful movement that release tension, build awareness and strength and will leave you feeling grounded and renewed.
