the vision

Our vision for the studio was to create a space that provides a relaxed and Zen like sanctuary for the busy individual.

We want to build a community of enlightened, strong, healthy and compassionate individuals, who will reap the benefits of an authentic yoga practice.

Rebecca Bradley – co founder

Rebecca Bradley’s intention as a yoga teacher has always been to make her students feel happy and inspired after a yoga class. Rebecca found yoga at an early age and it has taken her to some amazing places around the world. She loves to share the healing effects that yoga has to offer in her classes, workshops and retreats. She is Yoga Alliance (E-RYT500) certified after completing her Level 2 Yoga teacher training in Bali in 2012 with Shakti Spirit Yoga and Ayurveda. She trained under Rachel Hull and Emil Wendel in Ubud, Bali to gain this challenging certification.

Qualifications achieved on this training include- intermediate and advanced yoga sequencing and adjusting, pranayama, meditation, yoga therapy, yoga philosophy, restorative yoga, senior’s yoga, ayurveda and marma point therapy. As well as being a teacher of yoga, she also holds a Marine Science degree and has taught secondary school biology in Melbourne.

Rebecca is interested in yoga therapy for injuries and disease and she is qualified to design a yoga practice which is suitable for a student’s needs or limitations. Yoga therapy as an alternative treatment for injury and disease is becoming more popular in the western world as positive results can be achieved very quickly.

Rebecca gained her Level 1 certification in Goa, India with the acclaimed YogaArts teacher training in 2009. Rebecca has also been formally trained in Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow sequencing under the guidance of Twee Merrigan.

Rebecca is Yoga Alliance certified and has had extensive experience designing intelligent yoga classes that are aimed to strengthen tone and repair the body. She also teaches asana modules on yoga teacher trainings, interstate and overseas. Rebecca continually improves upon her yoga knowledge by attending current workshops and training and she enjoys sharing this information with her students.
