Brendon is an accredited SATYANANDA YOGA® teacher who completed his yoga diploma (level 2) through the Satyananda yoga academy in Australia. His teaching includes a holistic approach with mindfulness as the foundation. A typical Satyananda yoga class integrates asana, pranayama and meditation or yoga nidra with the focus on one’s own inner experience, making this style suitable for all needs. Developing awareness through this integrated style of yoga harmonises the body, mind and emotions and allows for an experience of deep relaxation. Brendon is also a social worker who is passionate about integrating yoga into the health field and he has experience teaching yoga in different health and rehabilitation centres.
Vyayam yoga is an ancient Indian technique used by warriors, yogis and dancers as a dynamic yoga system, suitable for everyone. Vyayam is a wonderful synthesis of Yoga and Martial Arts, made of simple movements, full of grace, strength and beauty. It’s a meditation in movement: the mind observes the breathing and the movement.

Dyana has been practicing yoga for over 40 years. She recently completed her Diploma in Yoga Therapy at Wellpark College. She developed the Integrated 200 hour Yoga Teachers Training Program at Kawai Purapura and teaches Anatomy and Physiology and Yoga Philosophy and Tantric Practices on the course.
Dyana teaches Hatha yoga as investigation and exploration. Students use traditional asanas to investigate the way the body moves. As the mind becomes sharper and more subtle, the body naturally opens to the breath. Soon the mind, breath and body are dancing together .
Yoga is about restoring the normal function to the body. In Dyana’s classes, stability is coupled to flexibility, strength is coupled to softness, and movement patterns are investigated for their ability to integrate the whole body. Yoga is a path of waking up, of becoming embodied. Full embodiment is full enlightenment.
