Emma

Yoga Instructor

Emma's journey with yoga started over 10 years ago, this began a love affair that has only deepened over the years, and in particular the last year of her life when going through a difficult time she turned to yoga and meditation which completely changed her life. It was through this when she realised how incredibly powerful yoga and meditation are, and their healing abilities emotionally, mentally and physically. Emma's commitment is to inspire others to realise their own gifts and powers and to step fully into their most brilliant self, this is what lead her to Blissology yoga and Eoin Finn. Emma has just spent a month completing her 200hr certification of Blissology yoga in Bali at Samadi Canggu. Blissology is a unique power yoga with a modern approach. It is much more than yoga though, it is the art of tuning into the force that makes us feel connected to each other and the planet and using it to guide us so that we achieve our personal goals while minimizing our impact on the web of life. Emma's life mission: Live Light, Be The Light, Spread The Light. Meaning to live life without holding onto negative emotions, thoughts and energy. Being a beautiful being of light that others are drawn to and want to learn from, and then spreading that light into others lives.

Ayla

Yoga Instructor

Ayla was officially introduced to Iyengar yoga as a thirteen year old by her mum who dragged her to a class at the local gym. It took a number of years dabbling in and out of classes until she found heated vinyasa flow and a regular meditation practice, until she knew that she had 'found her people.' She recently completed her 200 hr YTT with Power Living Australia in Melbourne and Bali under the guidance of Duncan Peak and Keenan Crisp. Dedicated to the practice of yoga as a forever student, she hopes to continuously grow as a teacher for her students and for the feeling of wholeheartedness that it brings to her own life. Ayla believes teaching yoga is about being with people exactly where they are (and who they are) on the mat and holding space for them to do their own work; to bring the yoga off the mat and into the practice of life. Born and raised on the Peninsula she is extremely excited to be a part of such a beautiful space and share the love of Yoga!

Theta Healer & Meditation

Jess’ journey into Theta Healing began long before she even knew it. Growing up with a mother who had studied Theta Healing & Reiki, she was exposed to a different way of thinking from a very young age. At the age of 20 she began to dive deeper into herself and in turn, deeper into the how and why of the universe, the human brain and quantum physics. All of her personal studies and research led her to complete her Theta Healing training, which she now practices on a one-on-one basis, but has also formulated a Theta Meditation class for group healing's which involves releasing of negative emotions, past traumas and anything blocking you from living the life you desire!
