Your teachers

Tuesday Class - Jess Robertson

For Jess, yoga is a chance to reconnect and re-align the body, mind & breath, either through stillness, movement or meditation. Jess believes in listening to our own intuition and using this as a guide each and every day with kindness & balance. She believes that there is this inner voice in all of us, sometimes it just can’t be heard above the noise of our everyday lives.

The intention behind her classes is for students to slow down and reconnect to that intuition while getting all the benefits yoga has on the body, in particular the spine and nervous system.

Jess is a certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher and has completed additional meditation training with 1Giant Mind and Yin Yoga training. She has been inspired through various workshops & I is forever learning, growing, changing. There is always so much to learn.

Jess' favourite quote is “you are the sky, everything else is just the weather” reminding me that nothing is permanent and it is a constant practise to stay in the present moment.

Thursday class - Mia Shaw

Mia is a Melbourne based yoga and meditation teacher who has been practicing various styles of yoga for over 10 years. Mia creates a welcoming and uplifting environment and she teaches with sincerity and warmth. Her classes centre around an invitational approach giving students options so they learn to listen to their bodies and feel supported to adapt the practice to suit their individual needs.

With a love of many forms of movement, meditation and mindfulness, Mia’s goal is to share these empowering practices with students, allowing for self exploration, connection, self growth and self love.
