MEET THE CREW

TRACY BROWN...

TRACY, FOUNDER OF ZEN LIFE YOGA

When I first started practicing yoga, I Probably didn't even realised it was a practice. I just went to a class, signed up and turned up in a class, And I had no idea it would be a practice that would change my life forever. I went through a period in my life where I wasn't finding happiness and I was a little bit off track, my health started to become affected. I remember my Doc telling me something needs to be done. My first class I still remember hearing everyone making a very loud OM sound which brang everyone into unity. I remember my mind stopping with this pure vibrational energy. I realised then it was more than just about the body there was something in my soul that just said yes.

i am a qualified Power Living trained Vinyasa / yin yoga teacher and a full time domestic entrepreneur goddess mother, that's when i'm not teaching, you will find my classes are dynamic and intensely satisfying, combining a love of yoga and music, creating a safe space for you to look inwards.

Alex KEPES...

Moving to Perth from scotland over 7 years ago, homesick, disconnected and still recovering from foot surgery. yoga became my sanctuary.

it created a space to breathe, be present, gave me time to connect, reflect and feel gratitude for all the positives in my life. growing up i had always been active. at university i trained more than i studied. i did a term of lyengar yoga but soon became hooked on competitive and adventurous sports; triathion, road racing, kayaking and mountaineering until during a gap year i completed a vipassana 10 day silent meditation retreat which was amazing but torturous as i could not move my body.

i studied therapeutic massage and two years of shiatsu training following in the footsteps of my older sister. being vegetarian since a teenager i became interested in nutrition and alternative therapies. my greatest joy in life is being a mother of two amazing humans alongside spending time with my partner, dog ,two cats, practicing yoga and walking in nature.

i met my partner through yoga, where we were both on our own healing journey and over many months our mats edged closer together.

as a careers adviser who loves to inspire and motivate others to reach their potential i feel i have found my perfect occupation in teaching yoga. i am excited to share my passion, i invite you to join me in a class to help you strengthen and energise your body and calm your mind.

OliveR FRANCIS…

Oli is a dedicated yoga practitioner of many years, with extensive, hands-on assisting experience. He teaches a dynamic Vinyasa style and is motivated to instruct a challenging and safe practice through careful alignment and muscular control.

Although, he is not what you may think of, as a stereo-typical yogi. A drummer and a punk in his youth, Olis’ path to yoga was somewhat unconventional. The fact that his journey has led here, would have seemed laughable not all that long ago.

Initially, he was drawn to the practice of Bikram yoga. As a musician and regular sufferer of RSI and Tennis Elbow, he found that that the heat, movement and strengthening of his joints quickly solved all of his joint-pain issues. He still continues to play music, pain-free.

Once he discovered Vinyasa however, he never looked back - preferring, a stronger, more dynamic and less repetitive practice; without the physical stress of an overly-heated room. With this style, also came the inward mental shift of a focused and mindful practice. He learned to appreciate a meditative approach to yoga. He understands how powerful it can be to come to terms with your body as it is; and to really feel and move with consciousness and awareness. So many of us take our bodies for granted, we forget how amazingly intricate and capable they are.

Oli strives to give his students the opportunity to explore and connect mind and body for a truly unified yoga practice. This is true yoga, something which may in time, extend beyond the mat.

SACHA NORSWORTHY…

As an ex dancer, I was drawn to Yoga to manage my physical body and then as I am a spiritual warrior for truth and progress; I found my wisdom in its teaching and relief in its practices.

I started teaching at Sunday school at the age of 9, I have always been a teacher of something. After years of teaching other disciplines, therapeutic movement became my focus. Motion is lotion, I am passionate about improving the quality of another's life through these tools and to ask the hard questions that move you forward.It is my parent. A loving, gentle but rock solid teacher that is always there. It provides the disipline and boundaries I lacked growing up and the wisdom to keep me course correcting.

The best part of the job? Seeing the spiritual change in others after practice. I'm challenged to consistently reflect on who I am, the quality of my contribution and how to be a part of, whilst carving my way in the industry.

My own practice involves daily meditation. Its my rock. When I lose sight of the fact my reality is just 'perceptionality' and my brain just a tool, I lose gratitude and humility. Life is a given gift that doesn't last forever. My meditation seat brings me straight back to that.

The biochemistry and physiology of the body to a great extent determines how we feel and therefore our lens in which we view everything. Yoga improves this physiological foundation and carves a way for progress on all levels, mental, emotional, physical and emotional

Quote:

"Radical self acceptance and a practice (whatever that looks like for you) that enables true humility, this, if any is the goal" Yogi Sach :)

Lisa Bianca…

Hi my name is Lisa , I’m a qualified child & teen yoga teacher, nanny and childhood educator.
I am also a qualified personal trainer . My own journey of yoga started about 6 years ago.

I think like most people yoga found me rather then me seeking yoga , it came at a time in my life when I felt quite disconnected from myself.

My first introduction to yoga was through meditation and mindfulness practises, this then opened the door to the wonders of yoga which was when I started practising yoga asanas along with my daily practises.

My love for these practises lead me to wanting to share what I felt was so important for children/teens, to give the tools to help them in life, so it just made sense to pursue my qualifications in child & teen yoga.

I am very passionate in my teaching of yoga and feel very grateful to be able to share my love of yoga and the tools and techniques to assist youth in their life journey, being a children/teen yoga teacher for me is the most rewarding job, one that I am very honoured to have.

Namaste Love and light
