Karen Gunter

Yoga Garage

Introduced to Ashtanga in 2003, this practice felt like "coming home". The vinyasa approach of breath and movement linking together and its meditative quality, calming and soothing the nervous system whilst quietening and steadying the mind remains central to her practice and teaching.

Nadine Welke

Strength From Within

Making a difference in people’s lives inspires and drives me. And in the process of doing so, I learn more about who I am……and who I am is evolving moment to moment. My working life has been varied and colourful! I graduated from university with a degree in jewellery design and worked in a jeweller’s shop for a few years. My Dad thought it was time to get out of my comfort zone so he pointed me to an ad in the paper for an English Instructor position in Japan. Two and a half years later I came back to Adelaide, bought a car and let my hair down for a few months. Then the opportunity came up to move to Sydney. For the next two and a half years I jumped and danced around on stages across Australia in hot, furry bear suits, though on occasions I was a rat ;) It was on one of... Read the profile >>

Youngblood Roche

Adelaide Ashtanga Yoga Shala

Growing up in a house surrounded by dance and yoga it would be easy to think that Youngblood started practicing Ashtanga from an early age. “My parents definitely got us involved in an active lifestyle. We did karate, gymnastics, football, volleyball, I even played tennis for my high-school for a season. But they never forced us to do any one sport. Even though they were dancers and yogis themselves, my parents always encouraged us to do the things we loved. And since I didn’t know what I really loved yet, I just kept looking.” After graduating with degrees in both Advertising and Anthropology, Youngblood moved from Adelaide back to the States where he worked as a copywriter at an advertising agency in Washington, DC. “That was a big point of change for me in my life. I knew I... Read the profile >>
