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

Corey was introduced to Pilates by a friend, and was instantly hooked. And It’s been a 14 year love affair ever since. Her Pilates journey, and  learning how to teach this exercise art-the original method, the method which Joe Pilates himself created,  took her from her home in Esperance, WA to Perth then onto Sydney to learn and work under one of the world’s best Pilates Instructors and Trainers, Cynthia Lochard. It took Corey 18 months, full time, to complete her training and is a certified Romana’s Pilates Instructor, recognised worldwide. But she never stops learning in this craft. Corey is humble and continues to strive in her practices to be a better teacher everyday.

Corey is extremely passionate about Pilates and wants to educate people about its incredible body changing benefits, but also helping one understand their own body in the process. Pilates is for every type of physical body, it is for both men and women, young and old and those injured, everyone is welcome.

So come and try the real, original method of Pilates. In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference, and in thirty you’ll have a whole new body – Joe Pilates.

suebee

Suebee studied Jazz, Ballet and Tap dance from the age of 7, completing her teaching certificate at the age of 20. Choosing to pursue a career in advertising, dance became a hobby in her early 20s, until a life changing adventure to Byron Bay was the catalyst for her to quit her career and follow her heart which has always led her back to dance.

She danced professionally as a commercial dancer, with numerous TV & stage performances and corporate events. Suebee developed a dance program for primary school children, which was accredited by the government and taught to thousands of children across NSW.

Since moving to Byron 7 years ago and becoming a Mama to her beautiful boy Zeke, Suebee now loves sharing dance medicine with the community, facilitating sister circles and dance workshops. She recently performed a choreographed piece by Travers Ross at the 2017 Byron Spirit Festival, and alongside Deya Dova for her Album release.

Suebee has a gentle and playful nature, and is passionate about people finding their own unique rhythm and freedom in their dance. For Suebee, dance is more than movement, it is medicine, it is connection to the divine, and a way to express the language of the soul.

 "When I dance I set my wings free. I dance to heal, to pray, and to express myself in the most deeply intimate way. When I dance I feel my spirit soar and I am one with all Creation" - Suebee Fae
