YOUR TEACHER - Ilana Hamill

Being a mum to two small boys, Ilana understands what it's like to live life chaotically. For the past 10 years, Yoga has been something that Ilana has used to find some clarity and peace of mind when things got a bit tough.
In 2010 she completed yoga teacher training in Australia and has been lucky enough to study with some well known Australian yoga community teachers including Clive Sheridan, Sindar Kaur, Mark Breadner, Christina Brown and Ana Davis. Since then she has continued to develop her skills and knowledge through Shiva Rea’s Fluid Power Teacher Training facilitated by Simon Park and BodyMindLife’s Art of Alignment & Assisting. Her passion for teaching pre and post-natal yoga naturally evolved after falling pregnant with her sons. She definitely attributes yoga to positively transforming her birthing experience as well as giving her the tools to approach becoming a first time mother with great confidence and strength. Ilana’s classes are playful, energetic and fun. Always trying to encourage students to bring some joy onto the mat and grace into the practice, she believes this will enable them to reach their full potential on and off the mat.

Christian first yoga class was underwhelming. It involved a teacher in baggy pants asking him to do strange, impossible things with his body. He put the experience on the shelf and left it there until Bikram caught his eye. Naturally sporty, the physicality appealed to him as did a mind/body connection that he’d never experienced before. From there he found power yoga, recovered from two knee reconstructions and in 2012 began the process of becoming a teacher. Christian has since trained with Baron Baptiste, Bryan Kest, Noah Maze, Les Leventhal, Chanel Luck, Simon Park, Christina Sell, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea and Maty Ezraty. His classes embrace all these styles, exuding a strong and playful teaching style that radiates energy. His gentle nature, natural athleticism and deep house heart keeps his students engaged and uplifted, giving them the space to experiment and explore.

YOUR TEACHER - Christian Ralston

Christian first yoga class was underwhelming. It involved a teacher in baggy pants asking him to do strange, impossible things with his body. He put the experience on the shelf and left it there until Bikram caught his eye. Naturally sporty, the physicality appealed to him as did a mind/body connection that he’d never experienced before. From there he found power yoga, recovered from two knee reconstructions and in 2012 began the process of becoming a teacher. Christian has since trained with Baron Baptiste, Bryan Kest, Noah Maze, Les Leventhal, Chanel Luck, Simon Park, Christina Sell, Ana Forrest, Shiva Rea and Maty Ezraty. His classes embrace all these styles, exuding a strong and playful teaching style that radiates energy. His gentle nature, natural athleticism and deep house heart keeps his students engaged and uplifted, giving them the space to experiment and explore.
