Erin is a facilitator of grounding, insightful and peaceful experiences. She incorporates a certain lightness and fun in all that she does. Taking the time to get to know students is deeply important to Erin, as she genuinely cares about students desires and unique journey's.

"I thoroughly enjoy supporting students in developing their inner knowing/wisdom and guiding them through an inspiring practice".

Her intention is to build a supportive relationship and to teach tools that empower you and allow you to courageously communicate your unique message; combining every aspect of your being.

Her personal use with Aura-Soma®, Yoga and Meditation has allowed her to find space in the moment to respond, rather than to react. Her extensive tool kit has increased her resiliance to discomfort in challenging circumstances and has developed her sense of awareness to life and those around her. Self-enquiry practice helps her move through challenges with more grace and to live every day with deep trust  herself.

"It is the clients I meet with and students I see on the Yoga mat that inspire me every day. It gives me motivation to continue on this path of self acceptance and growth. And it is my hope, through my own personal dedication, that I also inspire others. Trust in the wisdom within and you will feel a wonderful support. It moves through you and you can only be your Self.” – Erin Docherty

You can find Erin teaching Yin Yoga on Mondays 9:30am - 11am and on Thursdays 9:30am - 11am.

MIKKELINE OLSEN

YIN YOGA. RETREATS.

mikky

“Connecting with my Māori heritage and interest in Indigenous cultures and the wisdom they hold to bring you a sense of direction and connection to each other and our mother Earth.”

Mikkeline was first introduced to the ancient art of yoga over 13 years ago on a journey through India, the motherland of yoga. However, it was not until a chain of unexpected challenging, life altering events that led to a deeper exploration of the practice. This eventually set the seed of intention and desire to share the benefits of this healing practice with others. She has been a practitioner, student and teacher for the past 8 years and is experienced in Hatha, Vinyasa, Purna, Yin/Yang and Restorative Yin Yoga with special interests in Pranayama and Nada (sound) Yoga. 

Mikkeline’s approach to teaching yoga can be described as nurturing and therapeutic whilst creating an environment where students feel held in a sacred and safe space. She draws upon inspiration from her Māori ancestral heritage and other indigenous cultural practices, from nature itself and the many forms of movement and sound. We are all unique and as such there can be no 'one size fits all' in life or in our yoga practice. Her intention is to help people become more self-aware so they may awaken to their own truth and feel more connected to the world around them. This is the intention and gift of yoga. 

"Through my connection with my soul, my family, my culture, my heritage and my source energy, it is my deepest intention to share the practices and things I learn along the way to help you to stay connected to who you are and our Earth, of which we are not separate from. Remembering we are all connected to each other and practice living in balance, harmony and love.” - Mikkeline Olsen

You can find Mikkeline teaching Yin Yoga every Tuesday evening 5:30pm - 7pm.

Sjha’ra Taylor

KUNDALINI YOGA. CACAO CEREMONY. SPEAKER. WRITER.

3Z2A9989IngridPullenPhotography.jpg

Sjha’ra Taylor, creator of Chocolate Yoga,is a dynamic and creative International Kundalini Yoga Teacher, workshop facilitator, speaker and writer.

Gifted in the art of ritual, ceremony, and the healing arts, Sjha’ra holds a clear, deep and present space in her classes and workshops. She offers a fusion of the ancient traditions of yoga and shamanic wisdom. Sjha’ra has been practicing yoga for 20 years and sharing her love and light in teaching, for 11 years. 

Kundalini Yoga has such potent power as it is a training ground to push through the limitations of the mind and challenges us to reach beyond the small personality. It helps us unlock the gift of ourselves and gives us the ability to be graceful in times of turmoil.” – Sjha’ra Taylor

Aside from being an experienced Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Sjha’ra also specialises in Pre – Natal, Sun Yoga Kids and is a qualified Tantric Heart Practitioner and Sivananda Yoga Teacher. 

“I hope to meet you on the mat, to share yoga and journey with you beyond our limitations, to a realm of infinite potential where we can arrive at our Sat Nam – true essence”. 

Here’s what are others are saying about yoga with Sjha’ra:

Kundalini yoga, the yoga of awareness, taught by Sjha’ra, is challenging, inspiring, and fulfilling. Challenging because this well-experienced teacher knows how much further I can strive than I seem to know! To achieve the goal of any challenge is in itself satisfying, and often more readily gained with the guidance of timely encouragement.  Kundalini yoga is inspiring in the true sense of the word, as the mantras, so appropriately chosen by Sjha’ra, combine with the kriyas to bring solace to the spirit, stillness to the mind and strength to the body. 

At the end of each two hour session, I tingle…fulfilled and complete, again aware of the very essence of life, and grateful to have been shown the way by a woman I much admire”. - Delvene Cornell

Why not enrol in a class with her to experience the transformative power of Kundalini Yoga for yourself.
