I discovered my love for yoga accidently when I signed up for gym membership some 15 years ago. From my first yoga class I felt a sense of calm and balance – wholeness. As a teacher I am passionate about breath and mindfully feeling each posture. It is so important to listen to your own body and treat it with loving kindness. In my classes I like to focus on correct alignment and core control and offer a space to gently release and rejuvenate whilst combining movement and meditation for the body, mind and spirit. I frequently include Thai yoga massage techniques during relaxation to further enhance the yoga experience and for a bit of fun offer partnered postures.
I am a Sunny Coast local and share my life with husband Gordon, 8 children and 1 granddaughter and we love getting outdoors to enjoy the wonderful experiences the Sunshine Coast has on offer. Yoga has enhanced every aspect of my life, my health and my relationships. It has empowered me and these days I have real balance in my life.
Yoga is for everyone, whatever your ability and I welcome you to my classes. Give yourself the gift of yoga to enrich and enhance your life.

Initially yoga helped me to heal my back, but it has given me so much more. It has taught me to open my heart, given me courage to face my fears and enabled me to tap in to my intuition in a way that makes the answers simple and clear. I find spending time connecting with myself on my mat allows me to be vulnerable, and allows me space to grow and nurture myself.
I made the choice to teach yoga after practicing with 6000 people and Michael Franti playing live acoustic at Bluesfest in Byron Bay. It was such an amazing experience, I decided right then and there that I wanted to share yoga with everyone on the planet!!
I have a high energy personality and zest for life, but believe that we must firstly fill our own cup so that we have plenty to give others. My class is suitable for all levels it has a core focus, mixed with vinyasa flow and some mindfulness. My passion for yoga is something that keeps growing and helps me in all aspects of my life, on and off the mat.

Currently completing Level 1 Mindfulness Coaching Program with Tammy Williams
I like to squeeze the most out of life – and yoga gives me the opportunity to do just that! It filters into every aspect of my world and helps me to become more mindful. Through yoga, I am more present as a mother, a wife, a friend, and at work. It is easy to give your time and energy to everyone else and later find that you are left with nothing for yourself. This is why I like practicing at 5am each morning so I start my day knowing I have already given time to myself and begun each day with my energy tank full. I then move from my child’s pose to my child’s hug as my daughter wakes to start her day with me. I find that how you start your day, with influence how your day ends and all that goes on in between!

Yoga has helped me to grow and so i teach to pass on those skills to others. It is like planting a seed and watching a flower grow. Amazing transformations.
Yoga calms my busy mind and helps to make me feel, peaceful and relaxed.
Why I teach Yoga: I like connecting with people, and want to share what I feel(how yoga makes me fee), I want to make a difference to their life and help people to feel good.
What my class is like: My class is always different, Its Power Vinyasa flow, with some core, and always some humour thrown into the mix (to make everyone laugh or smile). We always end with meditation (the best part).
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the universe”
Training: NRG Yoga teacher training certificate – level 1, Certificate iii and iv in Fitness, and various other Fitness Certificates, including Pilates.

My goal is to Keep it Simple and be a yoga being rather than a yoga doing. I wish to maintain health and well being for myself and others and love integrating life experiences with yoga philosophy and vice versa. I enjoy the friendship of the yoga community and look forward to seeing you on the mat.
Niki was led to yoga through her love of martial arts. Having trained and competed since 2010 in mixed martial arts, Niki was craving something to balance her active, competitive lifestyle and Yoga was the answer.
“Not only did Yoga help with my body’s recovery from fight training, Yoga also served as a path to understanding myself deeper and gaining clarity and calmness in a hectic world. Yoga trains the mind and body to become still and flexible. These are both excellent at-tributes to bring over to any sport or lifestyle”.
Niki has an energetic and honest approach to life, she brings openness and warmth to her yoga classes.
Training: Level 1 Yoga NRG Teacher Training + Con Ed in Assisting + Adjusting
Yoga is an incredible journey of self-discovery that not only has amazing benefits for our bodies and our health, but also for our mind and spirit. During my own experience; Yoga has shown me an abundance of key tools that help shape my life for the better and it is my goal and passion to help share these tools with others so that they can live a life full of gratitude, love, happiness and peace.
I completed my Yoga Qualification through Yoga NRG – an amazing company and team of wonderful teachers who I now have the pleasure to teach with.
In addition to my Yoga Teaching certificate, I also hold Certificate III and IV Fitness Qualifications. I have always been very passionate about the health and fitness industry and have been a member of local gyms; attending regular aerobics classes ever since I was of the age of 13.
I feel so priveledged to be a born and bred Sunny Coast girl and I am so grateful and blessed to call this place home. I love living a healthy, active lifestyle outdoors and to be able to teach what I love to others beside the ocean really makes the experience of teaching even more special.
I am qualified to teach Flow/Power/VinyasaYoga styles. My classes include mindfulness principles such as theming and life philosophy aswell as specially chosen readings to assist my students to take these learnings with them off the mat to help with everyday life challenges.
I had done the odd yoga class over the years but for some reason when I started yoga a few years ago it was love at first savasana and from that moment on I was hooked. I loved the mindfulness component and I always left yoga feeling like I was standing taller, like me limbs felt longer, my heart felt more open with peace in my mind. Ever since then yoga has penetrated deep within my soul and become a huge part of who I am. It has changed every aspect of my life, it has changed the way I’m a mum, wife, daughter and sister, and what’s really noticeable is how it’s changed the relationship I have with myself. The reason I started was because I seemed drawn to it at that moment in time as I had just had my second baby and I knew I was craving something but I wasn’t sure what it was. The reason I keep coming back is because it makes me feel joy and happiness, it gives me a feeling of space and freedom and by spending sacred time on my mat with myself and mindful movement I feel more appreciation and gratitude towards myself and my world. As I continue to practice and learn I see so many changes in my mind and body and the biggest one to date has been my breath, through practicing yoga my breath has gone from being short and shallow to being long, smooth and rhythmical. I’ve also noticed my body transform and gradually over time I can soften into poses in a way I had never imaged I would. I strive to live yoga on and off the mat and every day I find it easier to integrate my yoga into day to day life, thoughts and actions and I’m getting better at dealing with those moments of stress and panic and being flustered and I’m now choosing to react to things differently. I’m lucky enough to have a husband and 2 kids that are extremely supportive and encouraging of my yoga adventure and they could not be more proud of their yogi mumma. My background has mostly been in administration and more recently with our own coffee business. As cliche` as it sounds I really believe I’ve found my purpose in life and that’s to be the best yogi mum I can and to share the teachings of yoga with others. I actually feel it’s my calling, something that I have a responsibility to do and one of the proudest moments for me was completing my Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training with YogaNRG. I’d love to help people discover the benefits of yoga and dispel the yoga myths out there and I’d love to help others see that yoga has a way of giving us what we need and can add immeasurable value to our lives. I used to describe myself as a quitter and someone who encouraged others but not myself anm very pleased to say I smashed those beliefs away and now I’m working hard on living yoga on and off the mat, practicing, teaching and continuing my learning.
