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."

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."

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."

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."

JASMINE 

DRAPER

Haven Personal Trainer

Jasmine has been in the personal training world since age 18 and explored all things fitness including boxing and pilates. 

Unfortunately 3 years into her career her world was flipped upside down as she was diagnosed with a medical condition requiring her to learn to walk again and also find herself physically and mentally in a new body.

This experience led Jasmine to explore the body's natural healing elements and aligned it with Yoga. After intensive study and practise both in Australia and overseas she then became a Yoga Instructor, teaching Vinyasa, Power, Restorative and her favourite one of all YIN.

Her experience has led her to a better understanding and respect of body diversity and honours the individuality of each client.
