Janine is a yogi and healer and has spent her life invested in the journey of returning to Self. Janine is a certified Embodied Flow Teacher and Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapist.
A former British National athlete and coach with a Bachelor of Science Honours degree, Janine has been teaching, coaching and presenting around the world for over 20yrs. Including lecturing at Universities and Colleges on the many different aspects of fitness and health & wellness. Founder of HYA Yoga Studios and Training Academy Australia, Janine now travels between Sydney, Australia and the UK and focuses on developing Yoga Teachers and students of Yoga as well as facilitating the healing process.
Sam has always explored her world through movement, with sincere curiosity for body-mind integration and Somatics. Finding Yoga during some very turbulent teenage years she was immediately magnetised by the weaving of breath and movement and felt a profound connection to the deeper philosophy. The practice became a solace for her and has taken her upon a journey of immense healing. Immersed in the world of Embodied Flow under Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons, as well as forever inspired by Satu Tuomela and Noelle Connolly, she whole heartedly shares her passion for embodiment, somatics and Classical Tantra as well as living life connected and in collaborations with Nature’s wisdom. To her these are rich inner calls to come home to ourselves, and in such home to Nature itself.
Maryanne is a Sydney based Yoga facilitator. You’ll likely find her at either Flow Athletic in Paddington, Sukha Mukha Yoga in Bronte or The Well in Bondi.
Having first studied her 200 HR certification under the guidance of Idit Hefer Tamir at Sukha Mukha, Maryanne has continued further study with teachers Sarah Powers, Jasmine Tarkeshi and most recently completing the Advanced 300 HR training in Embodied Flow with her current teachers Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons. As well as the 300 HR advanced modules, Maryanne has completed an Embodied Flow Yin training as well as an Embodied Flow mentorship.
Maryanne offers Yin Immersions as well as contributing to Teacher Training programs across several studios.
Maryanne shares both Vinyasa and Yin classes inspired by her Embodied Flow research, which is ever evolving and deepening in the container of group experience.
Maryanne’s personal philosophy ‘organically wealthy’ is about tapping into the richness of life simply by living from a soulful place. Following your instincts, going with the flow, moving from the heart…yoga offers an opportunity to explore, reflect, learn, observe and embrace the world fully.
By developing a body awareness, through asana practice, we familiarise ourselves with our patterns, our reactions, our tendencies. Once we develop this skill we can guide ourselves toward living a life of fulfilment.
Having been passionate about dance from a young age Vinyasa came naturally, Maryanne has found that including yin & mediation practises enriched her experience of yoga.
