Teachers

Bronwyn Rust

Bronwyn is a fully trained and certified Iyengar Yoga teacher with more than 10 years teaching experience. She is the director & principal teacher at Yogaville and a local resident of the inner North for over 25 years. 

One of the things Bron loves most about Yoga is its ever evolving nature & that there is no end. She truly believes that no matter where we are in our lives, yoga always has something to offer us. Yoga can help us to learn who we really are and with sustained effort through the practice, uncover the best version of ourselves we can possibly be. In the Iyengar method, the use of asana and pranayama as vehicles to study ourselves, is of particular interest to Bron. She has studied in Pune, India directly with the Iyengar family and is a past chair of the Events Committee for the BKS Iyengar Association of Australia (BKSIYAA). Bronwyn is a full time senior yoga teacher, certified at the Intermediate Junior 3 Level.

Bron finds inspiration for her teaching from daily life. She still has a strong interest in music, having worked for many years for an independent record label. When not teaching or practicing yoga, you’ll find her traveling to somewhere warm, making a pot of tea, at the footy or just hanging out at home with her partner, kids & cats.

Natalie Murphy

Natalie began practicing Yoga in 1994 and received her full certification in 2007. Curiosity is what drew Natalie to the practice in the first place and curiosity is what keeps her on the mat. Natalie has been struck by how yoga impacts on all levels of the human system; benefits can be felt on the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual planes which makes Yoga a truly holistic package. Even the novice will walk away from the first class feeling better somehow. Being able to share this fascinating and wondrous subject is something she loves to do. Natalie is certified at the Intermediate Junior 1 level.

Carolyn McDonald

Carolyn has been fully certified teacher since 2008. She has been dedicated to practicing yoga for over 10 years and has also completed a Diploma of Health – Yoga in 2004 at CAE. Carolyn is a registered nurse currently working in mental health and health promotion. Always interested in health and wellness, Carolyn trained as a Fitness Trainer and taught classes in the 90s only to discover Yoga as the ‘whole package’. I believe yoga gives everyone who comes to practice regularly an opportunity to develop physical strength and flexibility. It also provides a space to practice being present and mindful essential to good mental health. The depth of practice allows one to discover oneself. Carolyn currently holds Introductory Level 2 certification.

Abe Faulkner

Abe has been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 2000 and in 2007 began Teaching. He has had the opportunity to study several times with the Iyengars in Pune and has been a dedicated student of Peter Thomson since 2008. Abe has a keen interest for yoga and its application in the awareness and development of the individual and it's limitless potential. When he is not practicing Abe likes to take any possible opportunity to combine his 3 main interests - Yoga, Travelling and Surfing. Abe currently holds Introductory Level 2 certification.

Bronwyn, Natalie, Carolyn & Abe all continue their professional study under leading Australian Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher, Peter Thomson. We are very grateful for his guidance and support.
