She went on to study a Diploma in Remedial massage in 2011 and has spent the past 5 years working as a sports massage therapist for three NRL teams, as well as treating and managing clients with severe injuries. As a dancer of 21 years and a lover of movement, Tanya initially used yoga as a form of physical exercise parallel to her classical dance training, starting over 23 years ago.

After becoming a solo parent to her daughter in 2010, she returned to yoga to find space, create stillness and peace of mind in her life, and to embrace the present moment with a loving and receptive heart. It was an unfathomable dream to become a yoga teacher, and this dream was fulfilled in 2016 when she completed 350+ Hr Diploma of Yoga Teaching (accredited by Yoga Australia). Finding light in the dark, she continues her personal practice on and off the mat, to find and serve her highest purpose in life.

Louise Ball

B.Ec. (Social Sciences) (Sydney University), Cert. IV Pilates Professional Matwork Instruction (Pilates International Training Centre)

Louise commenced pilates in her teens, to complement her Royal Academy of Dancing ballet training regime. She continued classes throughout university and her corporate working years in Australia and the USA, with Accenture, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Commonwealth Bank.

Louise found pilates to be the perfect stand-alone exercise form as well as a wonderful compliment to many activities including running, skiing, horse riding, cycling, yoga and gym workouts. She also found it to be the perfect tool to safely recover from injury and prevent injury recurrence.

After the birth of her second child, Louise decided to leave the corporate world and professionally pursue her passion for pilates. She completed her formal qualifications with Pilates International, Pymble, and set up her own studio, Natural Strength Pilates. Louise continued teaching throughout her pregnancies and early years of her third and fourth children. Once her first child started school, Louise also began working as a primary school gymnastics coach.

From March 2017 Louise is excited to be adding to her calendar, regular classes with Eliit Therapies and Body Balance Studio. She looks forward to bringing fun and friendly classes, in a lovely brand new Galston studio, to the local community.

Diana Williams

Yoga has changed my life! I used to be a stressed out, sleep deprived executive corporate manager who worked long hours every week. Thankfully I found AntiGravity Yoga and everything changed, for the better. I had found something that was fun and even though I wasn’t able to perfectly perform the poses at first I felt as if I had joined a group who were trying their best and having fun while reaping health benefits.

Over time I improved my practise and my body started to respond to the stretches and strength that was needed. I started practising the breathing exercises during the day, especially when driving in heavy traffic. I even started doing mat classes and different types of yoga. I was a convert and loved it! I have now also trained in AntiGravity Pilates, AirBarre and Suspension Fitness.

Everything people had said about yoga started to make sense and I became addicted. So much so that I wanted to share this with others and so am now a qualified teacher. I hope that I will inspire others to realise their inner strength, connect to their breath, learn to listen to their bodies and find harmony and calmness, which can be transferred into to their everyday life.

Come and have a go, you may be surprised at how much you can do and I bet you'll love it as much as I do!

Maria Jaackson

Maria started practicing yoga 20 years ago while she was a full-time mum with two young children and was immediately blown away by how good a workout it was!

As her family lived around the world she has maintained a regular practice in different countries.

In 2011 she completed her teacher training and has taught continually since then. Her classes cater to the beginner as well as the more advanced yogi. Maria believes yoga is excellent for building muscle strength and flexibility but unique in its ability to provide mental clarity.

On top of all that, it is completely accessible to everyone, young and old… she believes there are no limitations to anyone starting a regular yoga practice. Now in her mid 50’s, Maria has a deep respect for the practice and knows that yoga will continue to play an important role in her life. She hopes to share this enthusiasm with all her students.

Her motto is to focus on what you can do in class and to enjoy the process so that you will keep coming back.

She started to take classes at a local yoga studio and instantly fell in love with the Vinyasa yoga practice. As Green used to be an urban dancer during her high school years and currently practices breakdance, she interprets Vinyasa yoga as a creative flow of movement.
