"With each breath we shed the weight of collected conditioning and limitation. Slowly disentangling from internal dramas that create impulsive or unwanted reactions and behaviors. Breaking the patterns that cycle to the same outcomes and discontent. And ultimately revealing the natural self by the incremental removal of all that obscures it. It is mindful repetition of practice that permits the depth and potency required to promote this healing and transformation."   Dena has been studying and practicing traditional Ashtanga yoga for over 30 years. She remains inspired and deeply committed to vast healing potential of this life changing practice. 
As one of Sri K.Pattabhi Jois's most senior and devoted female students, she completed the fourth series in 1996, and is graced with Certification to teach this method. Jack has been practicing and assisting Dena for over 25 years. They were married in a ceremony conducted by Amma and Guruji in 1997 and have two children, Zoli and Izac who both reluctantly continue to practice in Mysore.


Dena has disciplined yet lyrical style of teaching. Her holistic approach looks beyond external form to guide the individual residing within. Assisted by Jack, family warmth and a love of the practice shine through to create a safe yet provoking class atmosphere. Together they share workshops across the globe and from their sweet Shala on the shores of Byron Bay. We hope you can join us.

Course Description:

Yoga is a means to healing and transformation.

What begins as physicality, a struggle of bodily limitations can evolve with an ignited breath and heartfelt intention.  With effort, discipline, concentration, the energy shifts and changes the way we experience ourselves and others.  It effects our moods, our behavior, our relationships and our sense of self.  With each mindful breath, we shed the weight of collected conditioning and limitation.  Slowly disentangling from internal dramas that create impulsive or unwanted reactions and behaviors. Breaking the patterns that cycle to the same outcomes and discontent.  Ultimately revealing the natural self by the incrementally removal of all that obscures it.

Each morning will begin with quiet reflection and development of the breath.This will be followed by a combination of conducted and Mysore style classes which will accommodate practitioners of all levels. Beginners will be taught with individual attention to facilitate comfortable progression.

Afternoons classes, will support the morning practice and will cover fundamentals of asana, bandha, pranayama, yoga philosophy, chanting and stillness. Whilst consolidating a stable foundation this holistic approach aims to inspire a sweet passion for self-discovery and spiritual reflection.
