Lissie is a fully accredited Level II Teacher as well as Yoga Therapist having trained intensively for 3 years, with the former Director of KYM (Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram) and one of the world’s most experienced and recognized Yoga Therapists, Dr Natesan Chandrasekaran MD.  In clinic she specialises in endocrine health, addiction recovery and disturbances in the manomayam and vijnanamayam – anxiety, depression and associated disease pathology. Lissie utilises the tools of yoga to address the needs of individuals. She runs regular workshops on the basics of breathing and restoring high quality breathing as the foundation of all asana.

Shane’s profound knowledge of muscular effect and energetic release takes shape in all of his teachings as well as in his dharma as a Zen Thai Shiatsu Massage Therapist. His hatha foundation built on the fundamentals of good breathing in the teachings of the Krishnamacharya lineage, features modifications flavoured by his training with Gwyn Williams in Zen Thai Flow. Shane’s studies in TCM, play a role in all of his postural modifications and he runs regular trainings for upcoming therapists and for those simply interested in making connection with others through movement based therapy.

Together, their journey of yoga continues to unfold every single day, understanding that there is not a single moment in life that is not part of the practice. Constantly in practice and in study, reflecting over and over again; every decision on the mat and in their lives is guided by the teachings of yoga through Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the lineage of Krishnamacharya.
