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.
Love yourself, Love the Animals, Love the Planet.
It is my hope our shared yoga practice will create SPACE for you. Space for Connection, for energy to flow, for healing and a space for balance. Yin and Yang, dark and light, cold and hot. Fingers crossed you will find in your practice ‘Sthira Sukham Asanam’ meaning strength, steadiness and stability whilst being relaxed, joyful and comfortable in the physical poses. And lots of Self Love.
My physical happy place is the beach with Zappy (this lifetime she’s a dog) Summer or Winter, Sun or Rain, being in the ocean is a essential tool in my happiness tool kit.
Cicadas, frogs, and birds and the whispers of the trees. I’m laughing at myself as I write this but it’s true, I find there are so many beautiful joys in the sounds of nature. You will often find my radio tuned to ABC Classical and I also love the dirty rocking sounds of the The Cruel Sea album Over Easy.
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 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.
“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!
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.
