From your very first YOGA NRG CLASS you start feeling better simply because your body & mind has just begun to become cleaner or less cluttered. The move toward harmony begins immediately.

THE NRG TEAM is a team of dedicated health & fitness professionals who commit to empowering YOU and the wider COMMUNITY to be healthier, happier and more aware of how to love themselves at a very holistic level. Every teacher has something unique to offer. We go beyond just the physical type of Yoga Class. 

This means education about how our minds & bodies work and we all love sharing the many tips & tools that can help us feel better about ourselves. 

NRG stands for “Notice” + “Respond” with “Grace”

There is so much to learn and to “Notice” about the forever changing mind body and emotions.

Thankfully the Yogis passed down numerous ways to learn how to be with what arises , time spent on the yoga mat can help us all respond with a little more agency and understanding (on ‘those’ days when we may lose our cool) 


Our team of teachers, health + fitness professionals are committed to supporting you on and off the yoga mat. To help you learn how to use your body and breath to create physical fitness, a

“My passion & purpose is to help reduce mind made suffering. Yoga from my very first class had a profound way of helping me feel better in more ways than one, to the point I vowed to share it with others.  It not only helped my back pain (from nursing) it shifted my perspective on love, loss and letting go. It helped me , so I simply want to pass that on”

What I love most : 


I love seeing the look on someones face when they realise “yes I can actually do it” what ever ‘it’ is. 

I love watching the sun rise, sitting silently with my cup of tea , reading and writing poetry and cuddling my dog. 

I love surfing and all that it teaches me about life and what it means to be part of something bigger”

Why do I teach yoga?

“I love to help people find within themselves the resources they need to deal with life. Yoga helps with functional posture and movement reducing aches or pains in the body. It helps still the crazy overthinking mind and when you’re done, you feel happy. I love my daily practice to cope with all that life requires of me. If I can share all this through teaching yoga – even better”
~ Barb Rose

Barb completed her yoga teacher training with Yoga NRG in 2015. She is Mum of 3 grown children (23, 19 & 17) and a full-time Secondary Teacher. Barb is passionate about sharing her love of yoga as she has experienced its benefits towards rehabilitation after feet surgery and managing a stressful lifestyle. She currently teaches the Back to
Basics class. Barb loves this class it is also ideal for anyone who desires gentle reminders of yoga basics and benefits.

“Be the change you want to see in the world” ~ Gandhi

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.


I love yoga because it’s the greatest tool that I have found that brings me entirely into the present moment, all while bringing mindful movement to my body. The mindfulness aspect of yoga has helped me understand myself which in turn has improved my perspective and relationships.

I love teaching because it inspires me to bring a sense of togetherness within the community and hopefully I can help others on their yoga journey.

My favourite yoga quotes are:


‘When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another and ourselves’

‘Vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage’


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).

A mantra that I have adopted inspired by Nelson Mandela :

“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.


Why I teach Yoga

“I love supporting the community and creating a special space for people of all walks to come and be nurtured – supporting people’s mental and physical goals and seeing them achieve them – teaching makes me a better student of yoga – to show people that a yoga practice can help them be better partners, parents, friends and co-workers by being more present off the mat”

~ Rosie Overfield

Rosie’s classes are rooted in vinyasa flow, with a strong focus on breathe, body awareness and yogic philosophy. Having previous worked in mental health,  Rosie loves supporting people to harness the power of yoga to achieve well-being and manage the challenges of daily life.

“When you learn, teach. When you get, give” – Maya Angelou


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.

“Be Kind… Be Kind… Be Kind”

Mary Ann

I first experienced yoga in the womb. My mother practiced yoga while pregnant, and still does. After 6 years of practicing “casually”, Mom encouraged me to show up to take one of the infamous, Tammy Williams’ yoga class at Moffat Beach. From there this changed my mind, body and heart……….….to think, feel and love differently.
From there, in 2011, I began my journey of becoming a Power Yoga teacher with Tammy Williams (Yoga NRG) and Duncan Peak (Power Living Australia). My life changed from there, my journey to becoming the human I am today is simply breathing ….. This only encouraged a curious interest into self-development, and growth. I feel yoga has given permission to accept ME, to BE in my truth, and find a peace-filled life everyday. Yoga has given this space to make and support these necessary changes.

Teaching yoga provides me with an immediate connection with whoever shows up, offering a challenging, invigorating yet accepting, and calming space to practice and find their own space. Empowering those who show up to give themselves permission to have stillness through movement – a complete body mind connection.

Over the past year, my yoga practice has changed to ready my body and my mind, as my husband and I wanted to start the journey to fall pregnant; we are beautifully blessed with my first pregnancy and baby is due in March 2021.

Yoga and mindfulness has been such a blessing for my own life journey, it’s changed the way I live.

What’s your advice for Yoga’s students? Mindfully move with your own breath and your own strength, we are all strong and vulnerable. We are all at different stages of our life journey, our bodies are all different and most importantly, nothing remains the same.

What obstacles has yoga helped you overcome? Striving, grasping for something else – judging myself and others – patience in the process – being able to love me unconditionally.

What is the most rewarding part of being a teacher? The laughter through the class – when the pose is challenging, still being able to see the lightness of life and be OK to be messy and the peaceful, awe-inspiring silence after savasana.

What is your favourite quote? I’ve two, “Be the Change you wish to see in the world”, Mahatma Gandhi, and “If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place, Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change”, Michael Jackson



I first became interested in yoga at the age of 15. At the time I was diagnosed with Scheuermann’s disease and was generally suffering from what I like to call tin man syndrome. This was before the internet so when I attended my first yoga class I really had no idea what I was in for.  Following sound advise from a family friend that attending yoga classes would beneficial for me, I thought I had nothing to loose.  

Long story short, after 6 weeks I was amazed with how the classes had not only helped improve my physical condition but how it had also greatly helped many other aspects of my life. There are too many reasons to list as to why I still practice yoga to this day, but essentially its the feeling of connection that yoga gives you on all levels. This is also the reason I love to teach, it’s a privilege to be able facilitate this connection within others. With firm roots in Ashtanga and teacher training in power yoga and meditation you can expect these elements to shine through during my classes.

My role with Yoga NRG is to bring unconditional joy. I role model the values that Yoga NRG has – be yourself, do what you want, when you want and never doubt that you will be fully accepted without judgement. You can find me as the number 1 observer during Teacher Training at the NRG Studio, or in the background at Zoom Classes and Trainings. Playing my role perfectly – reminding people deep down all we need is to be reminded of lightness. The mind and body are no different to a puppy, they respond a lot better when they are treated with unconditional love and kindness. And just like west highland terriers the mind does not respond to bossiness or being told what to do but will be your best ally and best guard dog if you give it exercise, play time and take good care of it.
