Arielle is a dedicated Ashtangi with over a decade of experience.  Holding a degree in Sport Science, extensive professional courses and certifications and following a career training pro athletes, Arielle is also well versed in anatomy, biomechanics and movement patterning, and she applies this to her teaching daily.

Over the last 10 years, she has had the opportunity to teach alongside, or study with highly skilled teachers such as David Robson, Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor and Sri OP Tiwari.  Her primary teachers are R. Sharath Jois (Mysore, India), and Paul Dallaghan (Thailand), to whom she travels annually to study.

She is the founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Research Project, who has conducted global research on Ashtanga, gender difference and injury. Arielle teaches continuing education courses for yoga teachers, focusing on women’s anatomy, prenatal yoga (yoga for pregnant women), injury prevention and rehab, and adjustment techniques.

Siobhan discovered the stress relief benefits of yoga practice over 11 years ago, when working with troubled children.

Along with Jeff and Harmony Lichty, Siobhan's practice and teaching has been heavily influenced through studying with R. Sharath Jois, Rolf and Marci Naujokat, Prem and Radha, and many other senior teachers over the last 7+ years.

As a teacher, Siobhan brings a respect for tradition, as well as honouring the individual.  She emphasizes patience, commitment, and steadiness of mind.

Siobhan also offers Thai Massage and Ayruvedic bodywork.  Please see her website for more details.

For Dava, completing her Moksha teacher training in 2011 blew the yoga doors wide open. In 2012 she also completed the highly selective Kundalini teacher training. Along with her dedicated Ashtanga practice, completing daily sadhanas, countless classes, and 500 hours of other training, Dava is as eclectically trained and experienced as they come.

Like all our teachers, Dava has a dedicated practice of Ashtanga Yoga. She began her studies with Jeff and Harmony in 2012 at Ashtanga Yoga Victoria,. Her learning has continued to deepen since this humble beginning through participation in challenging workshops with high profile teachers like Nancy Gilgoff, Chuck Miller, and Tim Miller. 

For Dava, the study of yoga has enabled her to bring trust into her relationships with family and friends and to self-explore habitual patterns within.  She is truly a positive role model that students both trust and rely on to walk the yoga walk daily.
