Hi! My name is Ness… I grew up not far from here in a small town in Victoria, Myrtleford. My childhood was influenced by health and fitness ( Mum a fitness instructor/ masseuse/personal trainer/gym owner ) From a young age I suffered from poor body image/self esteem that resulted in depression ( later diagnosed after my third child was born ). I would run long distance and train excessively, often depriving myself of life’s many pleasures. I give 110% to everything I do, it’s in my DNA. After trying many forms of exercise for my depression, I came across Yoga… My new best friend. I still remember how I walked out of that first yoga class thinking, “Wow this is what it feels like to be happy!” Yoga has taught me to slow down and connect to self, to appreciate and love my body ALL of it and that it is ok to stumble and fall. Yoga plays apart in all that I do, I enjoy walking in nature with my dog, taking an afternoon nap ( often ) and listening to alternative music.
My desire to teach came from a passion to offer a space for others to feel, grow and re-connect and that it is ok to make time for yourself, away from the many responsibilities of the outside world. ‘For to give freely to others we must first give to ourselves.’
I teach a strong practice, focusing on alignment and finding stillness within the postures, with an emphasis on the breath, mind, body connection.
My space is humble and feels like home. A place free of distractions and full of energy and welcomes YOU to just breathe. I believe to teach you must be authentic and speak your truth and I will often share my own personal experiences through my teachings.
