There is no box to tick and perfection is not required. We welcome you just where you are to guide and share your yoga journey.
We want you to discover how good it is to let go, to breathe, to help you re-learn how to truly relax so you can rise above the stresses of the everyday. Yoga is not about a look, it’s about how you feel. We want you to walk out of our yoga classes at our Brisbane studio feeling lighter, clearer and rejuvenated.
We have you covered, from relaxing restorative yoga classes, flowing vinyasa, detoxifying hot yoga, heart pumping power, gentle hatha, disciplined ashtanga and everything in between. Join our Brisbane Yoga Tribe and find your joy with Smiles and Sun Salutations™.
Stand tall, strength is born from struggle. Breathe, you got this.
Joy, laughter and warmth to guide, support and champion you on your journey.
I am creating. Creating through photography, painting, drawing, cooking or sewing. Especially when the kids join in!

Smile, breathe and go slowly.
Lots of giggles to bring you back into the moment.
I’m dancing! Whether that’s with earphones in dancing around my bedroom or at a dance class.
A lot of electronic music, but still love bangers from the early 2000’s.
Rejoice in the simplest things in life.
Dedicated and gentle guidance, while learning to explore the potential capabilities of your own body.
I’m out somewhere camping in the campervan with my partner, Jordan and my German Shepherd dog Nisha.
Any song from Lenny Kravitz.
The Universe is always on your side.
Having studied dance when I was younger, my yoga classes are creative and fluid. There is a nice balance between moving with the breath and finding stillness in the pose.
There may be an option to play on the hands as well. Come journey through self-inquiry and let’s dance with breath.
Hiking in the forests or a mountain, exploring the world and trying exciting things, having a good dance.
Anything that’s catchy and has a good rhythm or beat.
Wherever you go, there you are! Not my words but I live by this.
Steady paced flows with a focus on strength, breath and mindful movement. Space to explore the nuances of a pose fully. I encourage the practice of ‘being’ rather than ‘getting to’.
Spending time with my daughter and husband; eating good food, drinking good wine and watching anything sci-fi/fantasy related.
70’s rock, strong female singers and at the moment… the Frozen II soundtrack it seems.
Everything is Perfect. Everything can be improved.
Drawing from my experience of more than a decade of self practice, we will explore asanas in a fun & accessible manner. I use the principles of vinyasa krama to design my yoga classes – starting with Breath awareness, a good warm up, moving through a variety of postures that will challenge you, strengthen you and create more mobility and end with a relaxing Savasana.
I am outdoors, spending time with friends & family.
Good vibes and uplifting beats.
“Self-love and believing in yourself gives you the power and courage to change your life.” ~ Amanda Ray.
In my vinyasa flow yoga class, you will find playful movement to flow through poses, connected with the breath, connected to yourself, I would like everyone to get the most out of every pose by making it their own and creating a mind body connection. Let Yoga be your best friend. Yoga is love!
Drawing, art is another way to express my feelings and passion. Yoga & Art linked together that makes you connected with your soul and your breath. Drawing requires a lot of patience and concentration, to reflect on my thoughts and ideas and give me inner peace! It provides a sense of satisfaction to the soul – The art of Mediation!
I love a personal mantra! All of the mantras! They change as I flow and grow. I adore “I am worthy, I am enough”. Today I am working with “I am aware, I let it be”. For quite some time I worked with, Om Namo Narayani, which means “I surrender to the unknown future with complete trust and let go of the past with gratitude for how it has blessed my life with both joy and difficulty”
Something light hearted, creative and fun with respect to traditional flows and styles. I like to invoke an ethereal, loving energy while teaching. I value stability, body awareness and honouring your Self. Strength, mindfulness and a few jokes here and there.
I’m having experiences, including foodie dates and adventures. Sharing time with my Son, our dog and close friends. Being outside, in nature.
