  • Debby Lewis – Founder and Principal Yoga Teacher

    As the daughter of a yoga teacher Debby grew up practicing yoga and this lifelong practice of yoga has been combined with many years working in a high-pressured corporate job.

    Debby’s teaching focus has been applying yoga to meet the challenges that people face in their everyday life and to make yoga accessible to everybody. Utilising her experience within the corporate world to understand the pressures of corporate life and liaising with organisations to help implement workplace wellness strategies to assist with employee engagement in the wellness programmes.

    Combined with a background in teaching in Yoga studios and gyms throughout Brisbane and 20+ years of a regular yoga practice.  Debby completed her  350 hours level 1 Yoga Australia registered teacher training with Yoga Den in Brisbane with the wonderful Kate Pell and Dan Alder and and since this time has started teaching classes in a number of locations in Brisbane.  Debby has learnt from some wonderful yoga teachers who  have been a huge influence on Debby’s yoga style and provided some wonderful knowledge to draw from including practicing Iyengar yoga for several  years at Yoga West in Bristol and vinyasa flow with Synergy Yoga in Sydney and continuing to practice with and learn from a number of talented teachers.

  • Edwina Kempe – Yoga Teacher

    Edwina (fondly known as Eddie!) is a Brisbane based yoga teacher and social worker.  She took  her first yoga class at the age of 15.  Some years later whilst living in a small town in Thailand without access to a studio, Edwina began developing her own practice.  Yoga gave her a sense of calm and of being at home, even though she was alone in a foreign country. This led her to completing a 350 hour Level 1 teacher training with the renowned Kate Pell and Dan Alder.  Edwina feels incredibly privileged to now be sharing yoga with others, facilitating a space in which people can experience their bodies and the breath and to find the time to simply be present.  Her classes develop strength and flexibility in the body and mind, encouraging the use of breath in guiding us back to the present moment.

    Edwina’s sense of social justice, kindness, and compassion for ourselves, each other, and the planet permeates her teaching, leaving you feeling empowered and nurtured. This is also informed by her previous studies in Peace and Conflict Studies and Community Development as well her background in social work.

  • Sharon Harvey – Yoga Teacher

    Sharon is an ex corporate exec who worked passionately in the travel industry for 17 years. Her last full time corporate role was based in Mumbai India, which is where her love of yoga morphed from a fitness activity into so much more. Yoga provided Sharon with a sense of balance to the madness of a frenetic city and stressful job by bringing an inward serenity. It also kept her healthy, helped heal an old knee injury while strengthening and opening her body in ways she never thought possible as an adult.

    Undertaking teacher training in 2014, with Kate Pell and Dan Adler, in order to deepen her own practice with no intention of teaching; however yoga brought her such clarity of mind and energy that she was inspired to share it with others.

    Sharon’s classes include breathwork (pranayama) at the start of class to settle the mind and teaches a fluid, flowing and playful sequence with a focus on alignment and technique; careful consideration is given to the remedial benefits of the poses included within each sequence. To reap the benefits of the practice, the class ends in conscious relaxation – savasana.

    Sharon balances life as a wife and mother to three small children with yoga and continues her journey of learning with the purpose of inspiring change, one breath at a time.  Her aspiration is for people to leave class with a sense of lightness and calmness and a deeper knowledge of their body and inner Self.
