Teachers

Bronwyn Rust

Bronwyn is a Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher and registered Teacher Trainer with Iyengar Yoga Australia. Bron began yoga as a teenager, is the director & principal teacher at Yogaville and a local resident of the inner North for over 30 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. Bron's wish for all her students is for them to be able to develop an intuitive and creative practice. She has studied in Pune, India directly with the Iyengar family many times.  

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 at the beach, at the footy or hanging out at home with her partner, kids & cats.

Natalie Murphy

Natalie has been practicing yoga for decades. Back pain was the thing that bought her to the practice, and yoga really helped with that, but Natalie has come to understand that this is only the tip of the iceberg. Yoga has so much to give on so many levels.  It is a vast, deep thing replete with many wonders.  Natalie truly enjoys sharing this life enriching practice with others in a fun and engaging way.

She also enjoys the fine things in life like family and friends, music and dancing, the great outdoors, a good novel and cake eaten straight from the oven.
Natalie is an Intermediate Junior 2 Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher

 

 

Fiona Tinney

Fiona began to explore and practice yoga more than 20 years ago as a respite from the juggle of young children and paid work and following major surgery.

 At that time yoga provided an opportunity to focus on strengthening and healing physically as well as a window to quieten and calm the mind.

Teaching yoga has allowed Fiona to work with others and deepen her understanding of the process and impact of Iyengar yoga.

Fiona has been fortunate to visit the Iyengar Institute in Pune, India on a number of occasions and benefit from the teachings of the Iyengar family including, Mr Iyengar, his children Geeta and Prashant and granddaughter Abhijata.

“ The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life” - A reflection by Mr Iyengar that beautifully conveys the wholistic nature of yoga.

Fiona is an Introductory Level Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher.

Samantha Williams

Sam started her yoga journey in 2001 after the birth of her first child. Initially yoga provided an opportunity to have a break and reconnect with self.  Over time the physical, mental and emotional benefits revealed themselves, bringing the possibility of balance and understanding to all aspects of life.

Inspired by the benefits of yoga, Sam began Teacher Training in late 2017, with the intention of helping others to discover the gifts yoga has to share. 

As well as her passion for yoga practice, Sam also enjoys her family’s small country property, growing garlic and herbal teas, tending animals and spending time with her partner and kids.
