Be Yoga —
Meet Tess

After years of participation in highly competitive and results driven sports, my active and healthy lifestyle eventually led me to explore the ancient teachings of yoga.

Since first embracing the practice of yoga in 2008, I have explored and deepened my understanding of the holistic philosophies of yoga including; the therapeutic effect yoga has on the body - physically, mentally and spiritually.

I graduated from the Hatha/Vinyasa teacher-training course at The Yoga Space under the guidance of Dr.Jean Byrne and am a registered member of Yoga Australia with more than 750 hours of training. I have also completed the Jon Kabat-Zinn Mindful Based Stress Reduction Program, and completed a Surfing Australia Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP) Instructor Course and am one of the few SUP Yoga providers in Perth.

I truly believe yoga is for everyone and that the breath is a vehicle to connect body, mind and spirit. If you can breathe you can practice yoga. My classes are designed to be fun and creative while providing my students with a nurturing and safe space to practice. 

As a teacher my focus is on guiding students through an infusion of meditation, relaxation, asana and pranayama, providing a practice that will build strength and flexibility and flow off the mat into our daily lives.

My love of the water merges with my love for Yoga in my SUP yoga classes, where traditional poses are performed whilst floating on water surrounded by Western Australia’s unique natural environment.

Yoga is an essential part of life, not just a physical practice but a complete state of being. I am passionate about cultivating positive energy in all aspects of life and through yoga, I believe I can inspire others to experience the same.

Don’t just practice Yoga, Be Yoga.
