Jo has been teaching Yoga for over ten years. She began practicing Yoga as a way to bring some calm into her life after having her second child. Since then her passion for yoga has grown and deepened and in 2011 Jo graduated as a Yoga Therapist with the Australian Institute of Yoga Therapy.
Jo’s teaches Gentle Yoga and her classes are varied with an emphasis on the breath to guide movement and to keep focus. They involve asana, breath work, relaxation and meditation. She believes that yoga helps people to realise that we don’t need to strive to be anything other than who we truly are and that really shines through in her teaching.
Bec is a Pilates teacher as well as a personal trainer. She recently moved to Kyneton after selling her gym in Melbourne. Having healed her own chronic pain with movement and meditation, she developed specialised skills in her Pilates practice that allowed her to relate better to students and help guide them towards a more positive approach to movement.
Bec’s style is uplifting, fun and inclusive; and you will feel the burn. She is able to offer different modifications to enable everyone in the class to feel the benefits of Pilates.
Renata began practising Iyengar yoga more than 30 years ago, whilst studying dance. During her career as a dancer, which took her to many countries and after arriving in New York in 1999 she had her first experience Vinyasa yoga and it wasn’t long before she was teaching her first class.
Renata’s classes could be described as dynamic yet gentle, progressing through differing sequences and enabling her to cater to a wide range of levels. Safely, she builds up her students’ bodies toward final more challenging poses. Although Renata takes her yoga seriously, there is always an element of play in her classes.
Lz is inspired by spending time with young humans and is very excited to be taking the little yogis class this year.
