REBECCA ANDERSONBecci has taught various styles of yoga. Her foundation training was in Japanese Okido yoga, and she has also trained with Jimmy Barkan, Power Living, Bliss Baby Yoga, FireShaper Hot Yoga, Inferno Hot Pilates, Shiva Rae, and with Barre Body in mat pilates and barre. More recently Becci has qualified as an IREST yoga nidra level 1 teacher, studied tantra yoga with Brad Hay, studied ashtanga vinyasa with Gregor Maehle, and completed 200hrs of instinctive meditation teacher training with Lorin Roche at the Radiance Sutras School of meditation.
"Since yoga became part of my life I have evolved into a more peaceful, content, curious, playful, grateful and happier me, and as a teacher I hope more than anything to help my students do the same. The honesty, intuition, and strength we bring to our mats eventually transpires to fill our lives, and for me there is nothing more beautiful than being true to one’s self. Yoga is my go to place, my island in a busy sea”
As a naturopath, nutritionist, and teacher and student of yoga, Becci believes in bringing her diverse skills into her classes. “I believe a well-rounded yoga practice helps to emulate a well-rounded individual… there is a yoga style for everybody! I hope to share my love and passion for yoga with everyone at The Yoga Hive, see you on your mat very soon!”
ELLY HARTElly comes from a background in classical ballet and has travelled many parts of the world as a professional dancer. After retiring from her career in dance, Elly’s passion for maintaining a healthy body and mind lead her to yoga where she went on to complete her 200hr yoga teacher training in Ashtanga and Vinyasa.
Elly is eternally grateful for the benefits she has experienced through the practice of yoga and continues to challenge herself with learning as many styles as possible. Elly brings her passion for travel, history, fitness and fun onto the mat making her classes modern and playful whilst still acknowledging the philosophy and traditional lineage behind each asana.
SHANNON REIDIn 2013 I nervously walked up the stairs of the local gym to my first yoga class. I can still remember the music pumping from the floor below and weights crashing while I lost myself in the movement.
As the years progressed, so did my class attendance. At one point being asked if I was living at a studio because I'd practice multiple times a day. It was around this time I realised I found the lifestyle I wanted to pursue and decided to take it further, becoming a teacher to see what I could discover and evolve into.
I love all expressions of creativity (dabbling in music, art, design and building) and find ways to incorporate this into my classes. Rethinking the everyday and giving it a twist.
DAWN TRATTDawn Tratt: Yoga teacher, skydiver, martial artist and journalist.
Dawn started yoga to heal torn ligaments in her knee training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Yoga keeps her centered and reinforces her core belief that the greatest gift to each of us is ourselves. When Dawn isn’t teaching yoga, she works as a skydive camerawoman, grapples with her mates at Gracie Barra Shellharbour, and does media and promotions for stuff she loves.
Dawn’s classes integrate her training with Noelle Connolly (Body Mind Life) and Sarah Powers (Insight Yoga), her studies in Psychology, Religious Studies and Journalism, and her experiences of Vipassana mediation, ayahuasca ceremonies in Peru and the dizzying ecstasy of music.
