Beginning the journey with a gym Body Balance class with his mum in the ’90s, Mark’s practice has ebbed and flowed into a way of ‘being’ ever since. From trainings in Sydney (Samadhi and Sukha Mukha 200hr), to ashrams in India (Sivananda Trivandrum and Osho Pune), and intensive retreats with a much loved guru Clive Sheridan, the adventure toward consciousness has been transforming. Mark has been studying astrology for almost two decades and weaves the motion of the planets into his teachings. Acceptance, kindness, joy and the art of ‘sitting with’ are what he wishes to bring to his practice he shares. Following the bhakti path of the heart he also holds kirtans (singing mantras) around Sydney.

Kadee began her yoga journey while she was living in California. She fell in love with the calm and clarity it brought to her every day, yoga has been a part of her daily routine ever since. Kadee likes to describe yoga as action instead of reaction, and because of this likes to keep a strong emphasis on intentional movement on the mat. She enjoys teaching a playful and fun vinyasa class and values the power of the breath. She likes to begin each class by connecting to the breath and softening the engagement of the senses. She encourages students to play with yoking the breath with the movement of their bodies throughout the class. Most importantly Kadee beliefs that the yoga we practice off the mat in every day life is just as important as our asana practice on the mat.
