Aislinn came to yoga as a way to keep active after a career in dance and circus. She fell in love with the practice and it has been a steady and unwavering support throughout her life since. She teaches with compassion and warmth, and is inspired to make yoga accessible to everyone regardless of experience. Her classes are mindful with a strong focus on breath and internal awareness. “I teach so that students can uncover a sense of clarity and space within themselves”.
Since becoming a Mother Aislinn’s passion is to work in pregnancy and postnatal yoga, not just through teaching yoga, but to create a community where women can connect and support one another. New parenthood is a challenging and isolating time that requires a new kind of village.
Aislinn completed her first 350hr teacher training in Brisbane with YIMI – Yoga and Integrative Medicine Institute in 2014, attracted by their focus on both traditional yogic teachings and modern application. She has gone on to complete further trainings in Pre & Postnatal Yoga, Baby Massage, Traditional Yoga Therapy, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra and continues to fulfill her curiosity as a dedicated student of yoga.
Trained as Kinesiologist, Tara’s role is to help people unlock the keys to listening to their bodies, to make a positive difference to their work, relationships and peace of mind.
Tara trained with Same Star Yoga School to complete her Teacher Training, and gone on to complete Trauma Informed Restorative Yoga.
These have ignited her passion to teach and share Yin and Restorative Yoga.
Tara has specialist knowledge to support women to overcome the challenges caused by hormonal issues, fertility challenges and fatigue so they can get their life back.
Believing in creating sacred space on the mat that is accessible to all, Tara loves to create fun and nurturing spaces where people can connect, reset and flourish.

“Yoga enables me to see the divinity within all other beings, and sweetly detach from the things in life that are no longer serving in happy & healthy ways. All we should ever expect of ourselves is to make sure that we are always moving towards our truth. Truth will carry you through the toughest of times & life will always fall into place if it is with the pursuit of truth in mind.”
