Wiebke believes wholeheartedly in the healing power of yoga and its ability to help people transform their lives so that they can be more healthy and happy. A yoga practitioner for over 20 years, she was living a busy lifestyle in a corporate career and used yoga as her refuge for stillness. With yoga, Wiebke was able to shift from being unhappy and burned out to living her dream. She recognized noticeable shifts in her being as she followed her heart a few years ago and left her corporate job, to focus entirely on supporting others in their yoga journey.
Wiebke’s classes are not only focused on the postures of yoga but more on prana flow, meditation and every other positive experience yoga has to offer. She takes you on a journey to the deeper levels and layers of yoga, through breath and fluid flow. As she weaves in her wisdom of understanding the human spirit, mind and body, with her deep connection to the elements of the earth, Wiebke’s classes are designed to cultivate balance, stability and calmness in every level of your being. Drawing on her passion for Acu-energetics and Reiki, she blends in those healing modalities into her teachings as well.
Expect to move and breathe deeply as Wiebke guides you through your practice back to your authentic Self.

His greatest passion is to share his journey and move people towards discovering their purpose and unveiling their gifts and talents.

After spending years as a gymnast competing internationally all over the globe and then going onto train as a professional dancer, Alex came to yoga to explore a deeper connection between mind and body. Taking her first Yogateacher training in 2014 and having taught throughout Europe and now in Australia she continues to develop on this journey of self discovery as a teacher and as a student. Her intention is always to help students to connect more deeply with themselves, shedding limiting beliefs and patterns so that they can show up in their lives in the most beneficial, embodied and empowered way for them. Alex’s holistic approach to life shines through in her classes, with emphasis on breath and connection to self.
As a teacher, being able to share her knowledge, experiences and spirit with others is a gift that Tory is always grateful for. She wants her clients to feel supported and free to explore their body and mind in a space that is free from judgement and stress. A class with her might be strong or gentle or somewhere in between – she will challenge you to go deeper and she will offer modifications and plenty of support, where it’s required. Yoga should be accessible to all.
With a cheeky sense of humour bubbling below the surface, Tory teaches from her heart and lets the ebbs & flows of her own life & practice guide the practise she’s offering her students. If she’s unaware & blocked in her own body & life, how can she guide you to be more aware & open in yours?
With a penchant for many of life’s pleasures and the ability to burn the candle at both ends, yoga is her trusty equilibrium. Yoga encourages her to honour herself wholeheartedly, which is what keeps her connected to it.

Her classes are a fluid flow of breath and movement; playful and uplifting, with an undercurrent of strength for the mind and body.
