Steve’s story with yoga began as a child climbing trees, running about playing ‘chasey’, and stealth stalking prey in some for off jungle in his imagination.
The joy of physical movement and visualisation, the places it can take you, continue to resonate with Steve via the practice of yoga.
Steve likes to teach with a balance of strength and flexibility, (Suka and Stira) in equal measure. He welcomes a curious and playful exploration through the asanas to arrive at a deeper more quiet understanding of our own unique beautiful human condition.
Lily’s background in movement comes from a career in contemporary dance after having trained at the Victorian College of the Arts through both secondary and school and university.
Yoga has been the foundation of Lily’s practice for over ten years, with her curiosity of the mind/body connection opening her up to a diverse range of practices including the study of anatomy, kinesiology, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Zend Shiatsu (Aust College of Shiatsu) contact improvisation and Middindorf Breath training.
As a teacher Lily leads a class that activates the body without force, dwelling in the creative space between strengthening and softening. Expect to be challenged in her classes while at the same time being soothed into a state of pleasure and relaxation.
Mariko is originally from Tokyo Japan and moved to Australia 12 years ago.
She started yoga after the birth of her second child in 2008 and has found it to be a source of her energy and passion.
For Mariko, yoga has helped her become more mindful and has increased her confidence and zest for life. Her favourite type of yoga is Vinyasa as it is a mind, body and soul workout. However, she enjoys all types of yoga and attempts to differentiate classes to meet the needs of each individual.
