Originally from Finland and now residing in Perth, Diana’s Yoga path started in 2003 when she first studied at the Ashtanga Yoga School in her homeland with world-known and respected yoga teacher Petri Räisänen. In 2012 Diana decides to take her love of yoga further and went back to India, graduating in 200 hr. Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher Training. Whilst studying Diana had the honour to be a student of Yogacharya Lalit. Lalit Kumar who is the Founding Director of Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre. To further extend her Yoga practice, in 2016 Diana returned to India, and finished her advance yoga teacher training, 300 hours, at a highly disciplined Ashram in Mysore. Diana’s depth in Yoga knowledge is remarkable, making her a very rich and layered teacher. She’s like an ambassador of happiness and you’ll leave the class feeling centred yet intoxicating by her positive energy. Certifications: – 2012, Himalaya Yoga Valley (RYS 200HR), India.

This later lead Haylee travelling to India to be 200hr certified yoga teacher in Rishikesh. She has also a certified Stand Up Paddle Yoga and Children’s yoga teacher which go hand in hand with two of her many life loves; Nature & Family.

Join her on this transforming journey.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Ellie’s active lifestyle and dedication to yoga has lead her on an interesting path of self-discovery. She has been practising yoga for over seven years and more recently was guided to travel to India to obtain her 200 hour teacher accreditation in Traditional Akhanda Yoga. Ellie has a strong passion for the unique practise of Acro yoga which has led her to the Ninja Academy where she works part time. She regularly helps assist acro Yoga classes there aswell as the Cirquest Circus school. She has been involved in Acro classes and in workshops in Perth and Indonesia, and continues to seek out every opportunity to develop her acrobatic skills. Let her take you on an adventure of self-belief and joy using movement, harmony of breath work, meditation and mindful intentions. Leave her class with your energies balanced, feeling aligned with your inner higher power.                                                                                                                                                                                       I found my love for Yoga after starting a family and also whilst recovering from a back injury. Yoga helped me to find and calmness and clarity (as well as relief from my injury) and because of this I decided it was the path I wanted to take in my life journey. In 2016 I went to India, the home of yoga, where I did an intense, compact course and in just 4 weeks I had learnt so many wonderful yoga and life lessons that to this day I live and work by them. The training was not always easy, but it has given me an invaluable lesson and insight, it makes me excited for the future and the future of my students. I aim to help my students to reach their goals and nourish their lives with the positivity yoga can bring.
