KELLY RYAN | FOUNDER | PRINCIPAL TEACHER
Kelly practices and teaches yoga for the seemingly magic way it manages to align her with a fuller, richer and more vibrant way of being in the world. She teaches alignment based hatha with a focus on strong body, soft heart and aims to help her students feel more aligned with their own sense of potency and purpose.
In Kelly’s classes you will sweat, build strength and increase mobility whilst building strong foundations of alignment. Expect consistent invitation to explore your inner experience whilst cultivating, potent energy (prana/life force) within your body / mind system, through subtle body practices.
Kelly is passionate about the Tantrik yoga traditions of Sri Vidya and Kashmir Shaivism that teach we are all a spark of divine consciousness. Tantra presents really practical & accessible practices and techniques for normal people living in the world (as opposed to yogis living in caves), to reach their full potential. Kelly weaves tantrik philosophy & meditation throughout her classes, in a modern-day accessible way.
Kelly first trained as a vinyasa teacher and went on to study alignment based hatha with Noah Maze and Christina Sell. She has been practicing yoga regularly for over 14 years, teaching for 7 and studied with inspiration teachers both locally and from overseas. She fell in love with mantra when pure serendipity brought her the Five Elements Process of Sri Kaleshwar and she regularly incorporates this into her offerings. She is a qualified meditation teacher and has studied Ayurveda, nutrition, massage and homeopathy.
SHELL WHITBREAD | YIN YOGA | HATHA FLOW
Shell’s first experience of yoga was attending classes at school as a teenager. Her practise returned whilst living in London 5 years ago and she experienced a deep sense of knowing, that teaching yoga was my life purpose.
Trained in Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa and Yin, Yoga has become the tool Shell uses to connect with her true self. Along with Vipassana Meditation, Essential oils and Reiki Shell discovered that together, they enhance her over all well being and happiness.
Shell teaches from her own life experiences, encouraging students to be open to the idea that every moment presented to us, is an opportunity encouraging us to grow and become the very best versions of ourselves.
With a strong focus on breath, the use of essential oils and Reiki in class, Shell’s intention as a teacher is to support students emotionally and energetically.
SARAH KOBEL | HATHA FLOW
Sarah’s instant love of yoga began 18 years ago when, after the birth of her second child, she stumbled across a yoga class at her local gym. The asana postures and focus on the breath opened up new ways of staying calm and focused as a Mother of young children! A dedicated yogi from that moment, Sarah went on to have two more children AND train as a yoga teacher.
Her foundational training was with John Ogilvie in 2012, and Sarah has gone on to attend many workshops and training with visiting teachers to the Illawarra ~ Amy Ippoliti, Mark Robberds, Rachel Zinman & John Weddephol. She also completed her Yin Yoga training with Tara Fitzgibbon in 2016 ~ often adding Yin elements to her Hatha Flow classes.
With a joyful approach to teaching, Sarah gives students the opportunity to find within themselves kindness, curiosity and a centred heart.
