ॐ ABOUT


 

ABOUT OUR YOGA TEACHER:

Lyra is a compassionate yogi teaching from the heart, living and breathing all aspects of Yoga.  First falling in love with yoga in 2005, practicing asana regularly with Sydney Iyengar teacher Carolyn Serich (who studied yearly with B.K.S. Iyengar at his Pune Institute in India), Lyra has since trained with many different teachers in both Sydney and Melbourne, practicing a variety of Hatha yoga styles including Vinyasa and Classical as well as Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep), Nada Yoga (Sound Healing) and Meditation.  After a major car accident in 2010 and since managing multiple musculoskeletal injuries and chronic neuromuscular conditions (including Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia) through her own yoga and meditation practice, she decided to dedicate to yoga further in order to share this amazing philosophy and practice with others, in 2016 becoming a qualified classical Hatha, Restorative, and Aerial Yoga teacher.  Lyra’s focus is on combining modern anatomical mindbody knowledge and pain science, with the healing and restorative ancient practices of yoga.  She loves bringing other aspects of yoga to asana practice such as pranayama (working with the breath), incorporating not only anatomy and functionality, but also philosophy and meditation in all her classes.
