Jo has been practicing yoga for five years, she started with traditional Ashtanga yoga but fell in love with yoga when she found Vinyasa flow.
Working in emergency services Jo loves both the yin and yang elements of Yoga, especially how the physical practice (asana) has the ability to reset, restore and invite balance into both our body and our mind.
Marion AKA Cherry @cherry.healing
Her yoga practice started in 2012 in a small village in South-West France. She remembers how loud people were sighing, and feeling too awkward to try it out. She quickly loved flowing, one movement - one breath, that was my first experience of meditation.
She traveled to Australia in 2015 and fell in love with Melbourne. She went to a wellness retreat that turned her world upside-down. Her yoga community became her family and inspired her to learn more about the practice and the yogic philosophy.
She is also a Reiki healer (see Cherry Healing) and a breathwork teacher, but most importantly, she believes that you will be your best teacher/healer, and she's honoured to be guiding you there.

Craig's fitness journey began over 10 years ago after completing his first ever obstacle course race. This ignited a passion to push his physical and mental limits exploring longer outdoor endurance events across the country; underscored by educating and upskilling on the basics of functional training across strength and mobility disciplines, to help manage these events across the country. With over a decade working in the fitness industry in another avenue (working for a well known national brand) and having honed his skills and discipline over the years on various courses and terrain nationally, Craig completed his qualifications over lockdown to share his passions and experience with others to help them achieve their fitness goals.
Justine is a qualified 800 hour YTT yoga teacher and prenatal Yoga teacher through Byron Yoga Centre, as well as a qualified Pilates teacher.

That challenge sparked a transformation in her, and a lifelong love of yoga and desire to continue learning and exploring everything she could. An English teacher by profession, she thrives on creating a space that feels empowering, playful, and creative to allow her students to find balance and space within their physical and mental bodies. She hopes for everyone to find the sthira and sukha (steadiness and ease)that yoga has given her.
