Nickie began her journey of Yoga in 1995 using the physical practice as a tool to remain supple for her professional dancing career.
She soon found herself searching for more. By 2005 she had already realized meditation was also necessary for her own personal development & peace of mind. Her regular meditation practice & deeper understanding for the connection to the physical practice led to doing 500h level teacher training, where she studied asana, Pranayama and meditation further.
Since being qualified as a yoga teacher, Nickie has created her own unique style of Vinyasa flow. Due to her dance background & long time connection to music she has developed an individual style that is smooth, strength building, continuously flowing that has a spiritual awareness. Nickie has a deep understanding that yoga is a journey that is forever developing and requires continuous study. She is always looking for new & exciting ways to expand her repertoire of work. Nickie has dedicated her own practice & teachings to helping others find the blessings of Yoga, whether it is through asana or meditation, so that they can find peace and joy off the mat.
Originally hailing from Perth, Bobby spent the first 10 years of his working life in building and construction. In order to deal with the physical exhaustion and emotional anxiety that came from feeling stuck in an unfulfilling career, he turned to yoga as a way to restore balance to his body and mind.
After developing a strong, disciplined, and consistent practice he quit his job, moved to Melbourne, and completed his 200-hour teacher training with Power Living Australia under the guidance of Chris Wilson and Cassie Lee. He has completed an additional 75Hr advanced teaching and leadership skills mentorship with Duncan Peak and Adam Whiting, and 30Hr yin yoga training with Hugh Lee.
Bobby brings a warm, grounding energy to his classes and is passionate about encouraging students to dive into the self-transformation that yoga provides. He accompanies his flows with upbeat and energetic playlists, and is humbled to share his love of yoga with you all.
Christina began her yoga journey in 2007 in Cambridge, MA. After her ﬁrst yoga class, she was hooked on the feeling and clarity oﬀered to her by the practice. In 2011, she completed yoga teacher training in Power Yoga under Angela Boltz in Montezuma, Costa Rica. Since then, she has taught in Saudi Arabia, Bali, Thailand, Boston, and Singapore —where she managed an Anusara inspired studio.
In 2012, Christina slipped a disk and her entire yoga practice changed. As a teacher, she became much more focused on alignment to heal her back and progress further in her practice. She began to study with Marysia Do at Pure in Singapore. Enter handstands. And from one of her most diﬃcult physical ailments, she was invigorated with a new love and appreciation of the practice. With more than 1,000 classroom teaching hours, she brings extensive experience and technical knowledge to the classroom. Her deep understanding of alignment helps students who are interested in progressing their practice in a fun, challenging, and safe way.
Christina is an ERYT200 teacher with Yoga Alliance and joins our 2017 200hr teacher training team as one of the lead facilitators bringing a holistic approach to anatomy and methodology.
I have enjoyed the last 4 years in 14+ countries where I have been blessed with the amazing opportunity to live amongst and be accepted by many different cultures and communities, which has afforded me a unique, balanced, multi-cultural view that has filled me with inspiration to create great experiences and art.
My childhood in New York was colourful to say the least - with exposure to a broad spectrum of people from all kinds of backgrounds and a family link to Mexican Shamanism, life was always interesting. However it wasn't until my early twenties that I discovered Yoga and a new path began. I was fortunate enough to be invited to study with Master Yoga teacher Bradelee Ferriot in San Diego, California. This experience and some time spent working with the Deepak Chopra Centre had a profound impact on me, leading to a decision to embark by myself on a one-way, life-changing journey, spiritually and geographically.
The journey continues today with an exciting global schedule of workshops, retreats and festivals, always with the aim of giving something back by bringing people together through Yoga
