BROOKE SKINNER

KUNDALINI YOGA. YOGA NIDRA. MENTORING. NEW MOON RITUALS.

brooke1.jpg

Hi, I am founder and co-owner of Sat Nam Institute and teach weekly classes focusing on empowerment through stress and anxiety. I hold regular workshops on shame, trauma, PTSD and anxiety, giving you tools to breakthrough past conditionings and stressful situations. Having experienced trauma and anxiety first hand I hold space with deep compassion and warmth. I am known for my light hearted sense humour and no fluff approach to healing. 

My deep passion is Neuroscience and Psychotherapy - the connection between our mind and nervous system. I have fused together my skills as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist, alongside my training in Medicine and Neurobiology to create a dynamic straight to the root series of classes, workshops and private sessions.

"Just because I have healed does not mean I am free, It means I have an obligation to help others so they too can heal. To be able to see your own pain and traumas transform to light by helping another brother or sister is the most beautiful process of evolution and love we can experience." - Brooke.

MIKKELINE OLSEN

YIN YOGA. RETREATS.

mikky

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. 

She is based in the beautiful Byron Shire and teaches regular weekly classes, on retreats and offers private sessions.
