Lainie’s interest in movement began as a dancer and she was later certified as an International Aerobics and Pilates Instructor. After 20 years in this world, these interests led her towards yoga. Lainie discovered yoga in 2002 while living in Chile, South America and practiced profoundly for the following three years in the Iyengar and Astanga methods attending daily classes and Workshops. She completed her Internationally Certified 200 hr Level One ISHTA Training in Australia in April 2005. Lainie returned to Chile to continue teaching yoga but decided to further her yoga training by returning to Australia this time to complete the 300 hr Advanced ISHTA Apprenticeship, taught by internationally-renowned Rachel Zinman. Over a period of nine months, this integrated course allowed Lainie to be taught and at the same time, teach what she was learning.
Since then, Lainie has furthered her Yoga studies in Pre and Post-natal, Mums and Bubs, Parent and Toddler and Children’s Yoga, as her focus became more family orientated with the birth of her first child Sofia in 2010.
