BREE NAOMEE - owner / YOGA & PILATES instructor
Bree wanted to bring a different experience to her home town Bulimba after travelling and teaching around the globe for a few years. She is so passionate about teaching and loves sharing her experiences. She offers a warm creative open space where beginners are highly encouraged to come. The Yoga studio is focused on supporting local charities and the community.
Bree discovered the beautiful healing powers of Yoga over 10 years ago when she was diagnosed with a severe auto-immune disease and was hospitalised. She was told she would never recover and be on heavy medication for the rest of her life and that she would need to have her bowel removed. After a year long battle Bree refused to accept this and turned to yoga & nutrition, Bree found that yoga and nutrition not only physically helped heal her body but a huge part of curing herself was that yoga helped her mentally and emotionally.
Bree has also found that a strong Yin Yoga practice helped heal sports injuries, a herniated disc and bulging discs in her spine which she was again told would never heal! She now dedicates her life to healing and helping others through the amazing benefits of Yoga and self care.
Bree is a qualified Yoga Alliance Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, qualified Yin Yoga Instructor and Pilates trained. She has travelled around the world teaching, practicing and learning with people from all over the world and she is well known for her unique, warm and knowledgable style of teaching.
In one of Bree's classes you can expect a high level of support, guidance, positivity, inspiration and scientific knowledge. Throughout the session you can expect to hear inspiring quotes, a guided theme to calm the mind and the benefits of Yoga and how we can use this practice not only on the mat but off the mat in our day to day lives to assist with stress & anxiety, injury management and prevention our relationships and so much more.
She is a Member of Yoga Alliance & Yoga International & you can find a short bio of Bree at YinYoga.com with Bernie Clark and some of the worlds most inspiring Yin Yoga teachers.
ALICE Giugovaz - YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Yoga means a lot to me, from the very first class I took, I knew it was right for me, my mind for the very first time was able to soften and relax, stopping the constant flow of thoughts that ruled my life until that point, being in the present moment without worries, fears and expectations.
Then as I kept practicing I've started be more aware of my body and slowly correcting postural misalignment that I was carrying around for most of my life.
After my 200 hours yoga teacher training in India I have changed the way I relate to others too, being more accepting, loving and caring.
Yoga has this magical power to reconnect and unite all being reshaping you from inside out, it gives each of us what we need in that moment and that ultimately leads us to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
My mission is now to share the love I have for yoga, with as many people as possible and If i can help even just one person it would be all worth it.
MEREDITH EAST-POWELL - YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Meredith's love for yoga developed about 10 years ago, around the time when she became unwell due to severe endometriosis. Yoga quickly became an important part of her life and she knew in her heart she would eventually train and become a yoga teacher. Meredith's teacher training experience was life changing and she knew she had made the right decision.
Yoga and nutrition were key aspects to Meredith's recovery from major surgery for endometriosis, where she had part of her bowel removed and lost most of the function in her left kidney. Not only did Meredith fall in love with yoga, she developed a love of nutrition as well. This lead her to study a BHSc Nutrition where she is now in her final year and looks forward to helping others on their healing journey.
Yoga has helped Meredith develop self-compassion and has taught her to nurture her mind and body; Meredith enjoys weaving these concepts into to her yoga classes.
Meredith is also a volunteer of the Endometriosis Association Queensland (Qendo), where she supports anyone affected by endometriosis.
