Yoga Barre classes have a yoga feel and you can expect to practice some grounding yoga moves during class. Dance Barre has a contemporary dance feel so you can enjoy flowing free movements inspired by modern dance, and Fit Barre is fun, active and designed to give your cardio vascular system a kickstart. All our Barre classes follow a similar format and are designed for all levels, with little flavours thrown in of yoga, dance or fitness.
Our Yoga classes are also designed for every BODY.
We offer slower moving Flow Yoga classes, faster paced and stronger Power Yoga classes, YIN Yoga, and yoga with weights classes - Yoga Sculpt. Modern movement is the theme for our Yoga classes, designed to meet the needs of modern day yogis.
We have 6 far-infrared heat panels suspended from our ceiling at NorthSide. Our heat panels are design to help you get the most out of your practice. They shift your metabolism in to top gear helping you burn calories, soften rigid joints, and stretch tight muscles, so leave your practice feeling wonderfully alive and free. Far-infrared is also amazing at penetrating deep inside your cells for an incredible cleanse and detox, your skin feels amazing. It is also the same heat that we receive from the sun (without any of the nasties) so is amazing at helping you feel on top of your game and uplifting your spirits. Not all our classes are heated so check class descriptions, we know some of you prefer to practice in the cool!!

"Since yoga became part of my life I have slowly had the chance to find the real 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!”
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.
JAZMINE WHEATLEYJaz is a regular wanderer, adventure chaser, lover of dance and Kirtan.
Jazmine found yoga during the turbulence of her teenage years, in which she was consumed by depression and anxiety. The only place that felt right was the yoga studio, the asana and breath awoke something in her and she quickly fell in love with the practice. The deeper teachings and sense of connection and purpose it provides continued to coax her to the mat day after day.
After years of dedicated practice, Jazmine journeyed to India where she trained in Hatha yoga at Tattvaa Yoga Shala. She has an ongoing thirst for expanding her knowledge and understanding of yoga and considers herself as primarily a student.
Jazmine’s warm, playful, funny and passionate nature is ever-present in her classes as she provides a fun and challenging environment. She draws inspiration from yogic philosophy, skillfully weaving in alignment, mindfulness and breath with creative sequencing. She encourages students to move beyond their perceived limitations, expect an invitation to delve inward and explore the layers of the self through connected movement.
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.

NATTY DIPOLDNatty began her personal practise of yoga over decade ago. She found through her teacher & going on retreat that this was the lifestyle she wanted to follow. Yoga connected her back to nature, self & the flow of change which is why she followed the teachings of Shiva Rea & Yoga Synergy. With many experienced teachers guiding her in different realms, natty found a passion for fascia. She shares these understandings through her classes, her self massage workshops and natural healing techniques.
A lover of love & living wholesomely, natty makes use of her time practising yoga disciplines, taking photos, writing poetry, being in nature and enjoying a simple life. Working with the teenager inside all ages ... Natty uses her waggish humour & light hearted attitude to share her philosophy of living fully through her classes.
BEN MACKINNONI luckily became involved in yoga over 20 years ago after being diagnosed with a spinal degeneration disorder by mainstream healthcare. A close family friend reccomended yoga and this became the tonic that allowed me to live the active lifestyle I wanted and manage my bodies ups and downs.
I am a Vinyassa yoga teacher with a strong background in Hatha and Iyengar and focus on maintaining breath awareness, alignment and creating a sense of calm and clear vitality in my clients. I have a deep love of all things arm balance and inversion work along with meditation and pranayama and believe in the transformational power of yoga to empower people in an ever changing world. I have worked for over 15 years in personal training and massage and believe in modifying poses to the ages and stages of my clients lives along with their current fitness levels and health needs.
I am a keen waterman in all watersports and have been involved in competitive bodyboarding internationally and feel yoga has something of deep value to offer any athlete. So come along to one of my classes and bring a friend. I feel i have something to offer every client and am honoured to give back the gift of yoga that was given to me as a teenager!
