In 2014 she became a certified Bikram Yoga teacher after training in LA. For Nancy the 500-hour nine-week process was life changing and priceless. It allowed her to witness her mind, physical body, and spirit being in absolute balance. For Nancy, yoga is a way of life, it’s all encompassing. And she understands it’s a huge topic so continues to study. She became a certified 200 hours Yin Yoga Teacher in 2015, where she learned the importance of meditation. From there she went on to complete a further 300 hours in Hatha and Vinyasa in India in 2017.
Teaching Hot Yoga and Yin Yoga is now Nancy’s full time job. And she’s grateful that her job involves being able to guide people to their own transformative journey.
For Deb, things happen for a reason. After a long three-month recovery from major surgery, she returned to a high stress job and lasted one day. She realised working long hours wasn’t what was important to her. Then she found Bikram. Challenging is one way she would describe it. Determination took over and she returned the following day. That turned into attending classes at least 4 times a week. The changes physically were amazing and all of a sudden she had so much more patience at home, on the road, and at work.
October 2011 Deb joined the Yoga Tree family as a receptionist at the Joondalup studio. This inspired her to take a leap of faith and attend a teacher training in 2012 in LA. Teacher Training was one of the most fulfilling and life-changing things she has ever done. For Deb, teaching feels like her place in the world.
It was in the middle of a long hot summer that Robbie attended her first hot yoga class. It took a long time to get used to doing yoga in the heat but she found it to be a complete workout, a journey, and a life changer. Her health improved as she allowed the practice and her teachers to create a space for change, both physically and mentally.
Robbie attended a Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2013. Not wanting to stop the learning journey she went on to complete a 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training at Power Living and is working her way through the 500-hour pathway. In 2017 Robbie commenced a Cert IV in Matwork Pilates through Polestar Pilates Australia. She plans to continue in this direction with possibly a Diploma and courses on Reformer and Studio work.
If you had told Robbie 10 years ago that she would be a yoga teacher, own an incredible studio, and have this much lycra, she would have laughed until she cried.
