Yoga is a practice aiming at conscious union with this blissful foundation of our being (Sat-Chit-Ananda). As such, yoga has been part of Ananda’s life from the time of her conception; however, she has been teaching yoga for 10 years, and practicing many more. Ananda is a dedicated SmartFLOW certified teacher and teacher trainer, who is known to teach with humour, grace, and technical precision. As a former yoga studio owner, Ananda cultivated community and culture of teaching and practice with the SmartFLOW methodology. Through many years of love and hard work, she instilled an indelible sense of curiosity and awareness in her teachers and students. Her dedication to the process and practice of yoga continues to remind us that life is in state of constant change. She believes yoga is deep listening, an act of physical and mental attuning, which increases the possibility for personal change. Yoga allows for a greater range of movement, so we might be able to adapt and grow in harmony with the moment. Ananda continues to study and apprentice with her beloved teacher Annie Carpenter.

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.

YOUR TEACHER - Noelle Connolly

Noelle’s powerful and creative teaching creates space for students to pursue their practice with heart, intensity and drive. A technical teacher, she is passionate about form and endlessly inspired to harness the subtleties of the energetic body to defy gravity and move fluidly through space. Always an athlete, this Philadelphia native, former ballerina, Boston Terrier Field Hockey player and graduate of Boston University, took her first yoga class in 2002, and fell in love with the practice – mentally, physically and spiritually.Currently heading up the yoga program at Sydney’s BodyMindLife, she gives her all to her students, with strong, challenging and intelligently sequenced classes that engage, inform and inspire, set to a background of meticulously curated music. She feels honoured and blessed to share the knowledge of her teachers and mentors, including Maty Ezraty, Joan White, Joan Hyman and Simon Park, in an authentic way.“I hope to forever continue learning, about the asana and about myself. Yoga’s ability to ground and centre me, combined with an endless thirst for knowledge, pulls me back to the practice again and again.” Noelle Connolly
