Peace Yoga Love teachers have  all been lucky enough to do some training with John Ogilvie of  Byron Yoga Centre and we are all qualified yoga teachers with appropriate insurance and first aid qualifications.  We have in common our commitment to student experience, alignment focused teaching and our desire for ongoing study in our field.  We all have our own favorite way of practicing and gifts to impart, with the common thread of our training - which adds a familiar thread through our quite different classes. 

 

 

 

Vanessa Bernardo

Vanessa started practicing yoga to beat corporate stress and calm the mind, and quickly became hooked. Studying yoga became a hobby, undertaking an initial 12-month course inspired by Iyengar’s lineage and the philosophy that yoga can be adapted to suit everyone. Since then, studies have included multiple kids yoga training and of particular interest, yoga therapy and nutrition. 

Vanessa is inspired by her family, the amazing students, teachers and yoga community that live with laughter, compassion and a vivacious appetite for life. 

Vanessa’s classes fuse gentle yet dynamic hatha-inspired poses, pranayama and meditation. And who doesn’t love a bolster class or a luscious yoga Nidra every now and again?  

Her intention is that you leave her classes feeling reconnected with your inner wisdom, with a smile on your lips and compassion in your heart. For the world around you, but especially for yourself. 

 

  Min Carroll   I was inspired to start Peace Yoga Love after going through a difficult divorce with four small children where I really needed my yoga and couldn't afford to attend anywhere near the number of classes I needed.  I ended up training as a teacher, and my dream was  I wanted to start a studio where it was affordable for people who were vulnerable to access free and affordable classes, and  to offer outreach classes to local groups who could benefit from learning yoga skills.  I am so honoured by the support from the community for our classes, and by the teachers who work with me to make that dream possible. I currently work pro bono for Bear Cottage who are Sydney's only children's hospice - as well as working with high school children who require additional support.  I am grateful for the opportunities to share the skills that have supported me through the difficult times in my life with others.  For we are one  xx
