Haven Yoga Teacher

 

"My yoga practice and philosophy is to focus on the breath, be kind to yourself and connect to your body. As a teacher I encourage my students to focus on these points and find the joy in their practice.

 

Yoga is super fun and super challenging, for me it has always been a journey of self discovery."

aNNAHEARN

Haven Founder, Yogi,

Health-At-Every-Size & Non-Diet Personal Trainer

& 'Body Respect' Cheerleader

"At the heart of my approach is body respect and self-compassion and I share this with my clients from a place of integrity and personal experience.

 

It's my belief and experience that shame and punishment aren't helpful in establishing a peaceful and sustainable relationship with food, body and movement. I gently encourage and guide members to explore life with a focus on self-care, not self-control."

Special Interests

Supporting clients working on their relationship with food and body image through compassionate listening and peer support.

Favourite way to self-care

Spending hours on foot in the mountains. The sound of my steps on a trail is like meditation for me and time bushwalking and in solitude replenishes me.

DEB

HENNESSEY

Haven Yoga Teacher

"Yoga has helped connect me to my body, then towards my breath, onwards to my mind and spirit. As humans we tend to make life complex and yoga helps me revert to simplicity and joy. My fascination for anatomy started pre-yoga days but this love continues, develops and deepens which helps me to make yoga accessible for every body.

My style is hatha based, and influenced by fascia release.

My classes have been described as fun, accessible, challenging and people often say "Just what I needed! How did you know?.

I love bringing movement, strength and a little play into every practice. 

 

After finishing class with me my wish is for you is to walk out with a lighter step and some delight in your heart."

 

MADISON

LEE

Haven Yoga Teacher

"I believe that yoga has something to offer everyone, and I have experienced first hand emotional and physical well being that is possible through the practice of yoga.

 

I am of the mindset that a regular yoga practice encourages positive and life affirming change - offering vitality, equanimity and improved flexibility in life; even after you roll up your mat! 

Through my classes I strive to create a welcoming, inclusive space for people from all walks of life to connect with others in a supportive, like minded environment."

DRAPER

Haven Personal Trainer

You'll see lovely Jasmine and her lil side-kick Kya (her furry buddy) serving our members with compassionate energy and pilates influenced training. Jas has been in the fitness world since age18 but in her early 20s life took an unplanned turn when she was diagnosed with a debilitaing spinal condition.

This meant learning to walk again and learning to be in a new body, physically and mentally and led her to a better understanding and respect of body diversity and honours the individuality of each client. 

"Haven is about exploring being truly happy with you and what your body can do for you and understanding its differences. It’s not about comparing, it’s about knowing and understanding your own uniqueness. It’s about celebrating what it can do and striving tow ards what it’s capable of in your own limits and goals. It’s setting your own healthy boundaries and growth."

Special interests

Pelvic floor health and pilates influenced training.

Quote of the moment

"In a world where you can be anything, be kind!"

Favourite way to self care 

Movement however way my body needs in the moment. Whether that’s power, flexibility, slow releases. I like to light a candle, place music on that I feel free to move to and then have a warm shower. I feel a shower washes away any negativity brought throughout the day!
