Connie's first taste of yoga was in a small country town hall once a week. Then over the years her practice became intermittent with other forms of exercise. She reached a time in her life when instead of feeling energised by rigourous exercise she was feeling exhausted and worn out. Connie moved to Gymea and found Body Awakenings, which helped her broaden her appreciation of functional yoga movements with a core focus. In 2016 Connie graduated from Yogalates teacher training and loves to share her passion through her unique understanding of caring for the body in a holistic way. She feels yoga is a path for anyone, no matter what age; starting out as a beginner or those who practice regularly.
Healing Sound Journey Meditations
Peter intuitively works with Reiki, Body Tuning Forks, singing bowls and other Sound Healing instruments, to tune into the vibrational frequencies related to emotions and trauma that have been stored, perhaps since birth, replacing them with positive vibrations more conducive to healing, harmony and balance.
Peter is very passionate about the energies within and around us, and how they can easily affect our emotions and wellbeing. The challenges of life can throw us out of balance, out of tune, causing stress and a lack of energy. Reiki combined with sacred sounds can induce a state of peace and calm, cleansing and balancing from within, promoting health and vitality.
