Our Team

Rosalind Evans

Rosalind Evans

DIRECTOR, FOUNDER, YOGA TEACHER

Rosalind set foot in her first yoga class at the age of 15, to this day she clearly remembers being in ore of the 75 year old teacher with her feet behind her head in lotus.

Since then Rosalind’s yoga journey has evolved and progressed through various different yoga lineages.

A trained classical ballet/contemporary dancer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in dance from Queensland University of Technology.

Dancing professionally, including with The Wiggles for a number of years and teaching for the passed 14 years teaching, as well as the NSW Junior Womens Artistic Gymnastics development squad’s dance coach.

The movement of yoga has always presented a sense of joy and fulfilment for Rosalind, however when she transitioned from professional dancer to a corporate career in media advertising that the calming and grounding effects of yoga really hit home. Yoga was now not only a tool to move the body, but release stress, aid digestion problems, calm an over active mind and gain perspective on life.

Having completed her first 200hrs training with Duncan Peak at Power Living Australia and realising that life behind a computer screen wasn’t for her, Rosalind left the corporate world and immersed herself entirely in the yoga realm and further exploration of the body, mind and breath.

Since then she has accomplished a further 70hrs Yin Yoga training with Duncan Peak as well as 200hr training – Moon, Sun, Fire Hatha yoga with the inspirational Octavio Salvadore in Bali. Further to this Rosalind has continued to learn and be inspired by international teachers Elena Brower, Dice Iida-Klein and Ana Forrest.

Rosalind loves to share her passion and dedication for yoga with her students and takes joy in guiding each individual through this transformational process. Rosalind’s classes are dynamic and strong, with a deep connection to the breath and mind.

Anneriek Favelle

Anneriek is a Sr Yoga Teacher with 18 years of experience in many yoga disciplines. She has an unique ability to teach challenging practices in a light hearted and joyful way. Her vinyasa flow classes are inspired by Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow, creating powerful flows with movement to stay connected to the softness this practice can offer you. In her own practice she has a great love for arm balancing practices for the strength and self-trust these poses require.

Anneriek has completed a three year apprenticeship in Asthanga Vinyasa Yoga, 100 hr Yin TT, 300 hr TT with Mark Stephens (Author of Teaching Yoga and Yoga Sequencing) and completed 200 hr TT in Prana Vinyasa Flow with the internationally renowned yogini Shiva Rea.

Bec Gonthier

Yoga Teacher

Bec’s classes are filled with movements and inspirations from her personal practice, and tend to focus largely on creating space within the body, as well as creating new movement pathways with strength and mindful movement.

First finding the practice in 2014, Bec completed 200 hours of training at Byron Yoga Centre in 2015, studying with John Ogilvie. Since then she has had the privilege of studying Yin Yoga with Anneriek Favelle; sequencing with Noelle Connolly and Sarah Routhier, and is excited to be spending time with Simon Park this year. Forever curious about the practice and always eager to learn, Bec will forever be a student first, and teacher second. Her classes will encourage you to find a sense of surrender, in order to receive the profound effect that conscious understanding of movement can have on our experiences on and off the mat.

Heather Ford

Yoga Teacher

I first found yoga about 10 years ago after “retiring” from Irish Dancing. I was inspired by the athletic practice and discipline that yoga provided. It soon became clear that yoga provided more than just the physical Asana practice. I was able to find an inner peace and quiet that helped me release my tension and provide more clarity both on and off the mat. I felt that I had found a calling and started to seek out all types yoga including Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Forrest, and Bikram. Before leaving the United States, I completed my first 200-hour teacher training and continue to take various trainings now that I’m in Australia. I invite everyone in my class to learn and grow together, accept our imperfections and practice ahimsa through asanas. For me, the practice of yoga is being able to be in the moment and allow the opportunity to laugh, push, and accept yourself. I hope to share that with every practitioner.

Mel Murray

Will first came to yoga after his chiropractor suggested he gave to a try to help his injured back. Initially Will wasn’t too sure, as he thought is was something only women did. But after his first class, Will was hooked and his passion for yoga continues to grow daily.
Will has gone onto completed numerous trainings, including – 200hrs YTT with Inyoga and a further 150hrs with Body Mind Life including international teachers Maty Ezraty and Noelle Connolly, whom Will continues to be inspired by and trains with weekly.
