clare grizard

Clare is passionate about sharing the practice of yoga. Her own experience with the practice began at a time when she needed it most. Evolving from working through old injuries and life events her continued practice of yoga gradually gave her a greater feeling of steadiness and ease in both body and mind.

Yoga quickly became her passion and an essential part of her daily life. Clare’s classes are about creating a space where you can switch off from the outside world and connect back to yourself. Uniting breath, body and mind in the practice of yoga.

With small classes in a comfortable and peaceful space you can experience true relaxation through yoga and meditation.

Clare teaches Hatha, Vinyasa and Restorative yoga.

David Mapleston

David started practising yoga in 2007 to help weekly football recovery and improve flexibility. Luckily, his first teacher was an excellent teacher of technique and a hard task master. In over a year of practice he was never allowed to leave the beginner’s class!

Over the last ten years he has been influenced by a number of excellent teachers in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and David tries to take a little bit from each and add it to his own studies of sequencing and teaching of postures.

David hopes his students leave his classes feeling calm, strong and ready for the remainder of their day.
