Kate McAnergney

Yoga Teacher

Hi, I’m Kate McAnergney and I’ve been teaching yoga for 15 years. I teach a flowing style of Hatha yoga focusing on the integration of breath, movement, sound and internal awareness. I am passionate about helping guide all comers towards experiencing ‘yoga’ in and for themselves. Rather than trying to meet some external ideal of flexibility, strength or coordination, I encourage students to take their time, to really feel what is happening in their bodies and minds from moment to moment and…. to enjoy themselves!

I have a specific interest in offering practices that support women through life’s changes (menstruation, pregnancy/post-partum and menopause) and will be teaching the yoga for pregnancy and birth course here at Elements. I have 3 children (11, 8 and 2) and taught and practiced yoga throughout each of my pregnancies.

Katrina McLeod

Yoga Teacher

‘Yoga makes me smile, inside and out. From the first class that I attended I was hooked. Yoga just felt right. The asana practice began to change who I was at a deep level. Yoga made me feel stronger, more flexible, calmer; I always left the class feeling better than when I arrived. Yoga made a difference – physically, mentally, emotionally.

What started out as curiosity turned into a deep passion. I will always be a student of yoga and am deeply grateful for the guidance it provides Connection to breath, Joy in stillness, Peace within. Cultivate mindfulness and awareness on and off the mat. Live more consciously. Give more lovingly. Yoga is for every body.’

Carmel Thomas

Yoga Teacher

Hi my name is Carmel, l am passionate about assisting people who are seeking emotional and physical relief and life balance through the practice of yoga. My classes follow a practice that aims to soothe the nervous system and bring you back into connection with your breath.

Classes are trauma informed (healing and restoring body/mind imbalances), creating a safe environment with variations to ensure all students feel safe in their practice. Students are invited to come into their best possible form of each asana which is right for their own unique body with an opportunity for each student to take what they need from their practice.

I believe in a truly holistic practice, so that yoga supports not only the physical, but also the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives.

Jacqui DeCoque

Yoga Teacher

Jacqui has been doing yoga for 8 yrs now and is deeply appreciative of the benefits gained through her ongoing yoga practice.

Jacqui has seen tremendous change in her body’s strength and flexibility since beginning yoga and feels grateful for the ‘calmer mind space’ that consistent yoga practice has provided.

A qualified yoga teacher Jacqui has taught for 3 years and is keen to pass on the benefits of yoga practice in teaching 3 classes a week at Elements studio.

Jacqui will teach a Foundation class for beginners as a gentle introduction to yoga poses, a General/Yin class and acRestore Class for deep yogic rest and restoration. The Restore class will include some gentle yoga poses but will consist of mostly poses for regeneration and is a great class to bring rest to both body and mind.

Jessica Fitzmauren

Bringing a light hearted approach to teaching, her aim is for each student to feel a connection to their true self and leave the class a little lighter than they came into it.

Mia Molan

Yoga Teacher

Mia began exploring yoga 13 years ago to help wind mentally down after long busy days working as a trauma nurse. Her practice deepened physically and spiritually into more regular practice a few years later.

After years of classes and self-practice Mia completed formal training in yoga teaching and began teaching yoga as mental health nurse in schools & community settings with a trauma sensitive focus.

Her teaching style draws from her training in traditional teachings in hatha, vinyasa & yin styles. Classes offer a safe space for people of all abilities & diverse back grounds to explore the positive effects of yoga- the connection between mind & body, increasing physical flexibility & strength and improving health & well being on and off the mat.
