Ramonet’s (Ram) Story

I was first introduced to yoga in 2006, practising Kundalini Yoga from the Bhajan tradition. In 2008, I moved to Tasmania, it was here I was introduced to Satyananda Yoga.

Looking to develop my yoga practice further and expand my knowledge of different yoga traditions, in 2012 I headed to India. During the six months I was there, I travelled throughout the country deepening my yoga practice visiting different ashrams and schools of yoga. I completed a 250hr yoga teacher training in Hatha Vinyasa with Atmayaan Yoga Academy, Mysore Ashram, India.

Here I learnt with masters across different schools of yoga including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Satyananda and Sivananda Yoga. This gave me a foundation to instruct different styles of asana classes, combining with other important aspects of yoga, such as pranayama, Yoga Nidra, and basic meditation.

Continuing my studies further, in 2014 I began the highly respected two-year (1600hr) Diploma of Satyananda Yoga in Australasia. During this period, I was living in Cambodia balancing my time between my studies, instructing Hatha yoga at Otres Beach and working with NGO’s building sustainable buildings for the local community.

In 2017, I returned to India, to begin the three year Kriya Yoga Course at the Bihar School of Yoga. Here I was initiated into Kriya yoga by Swami Niranjananda Saraswati. It is a very strict and serious sadhana ( spiritual practice) that required me to return to Bihar each year to receive further instructions for the year ahead.

Karen’s (Mahima) Story

I was introduced to yoga in 1998, however, it was 8 years later before I started to practise regularly. I had re-located from the UK to Australia and had begun to practise Yoga Synergy, which has deep influences in the Ashtanga and Iyengar systems of Yoga. After a couple of years I felt the need to increase and deepen my practice further, it was my teacher who directed me to Satyananda Yoga.

What started as a form of exercise, turned into a way of life. It wasn’t long before I enrolled on the two-year Yogic studies and teacher training diploma in Satyananda Yoga, through what was then the Satyananda Yoga Academy in Australia.

I love sharing these incredible practices, they changed my life, not only impacting my health and wellbeing, but also my life decisions.

I have so much respect for the practices and the benefits they continuously give to people. When I teach a class, I believe I’m sharing the most incredible gift.  With yoga and meditation, you are continuously discovering and learning, it feels like I’ve only just touched the surface.

My style of teaching is an authentic system of yoga that draws from the traditional practices of Hatha Yoga and its philosophy. I try to teach a very rounded class that leaves students feeling nourished – physically, mentally, and emotionally. I like to focus on my students and how they are responding to the yoga postures, to ensure the class meets the individual needs of each student.
