"I recently purchased the 10 the day introductory pass and absolutely loved it. I've never been into yoga but I'm hooked now! Briony is such a caring, patient teacher and the space she has created in the studio is beautiful. I left each session feeling sooo relaxed and invigorated. I would definitely recommend Twine to everyone.."
Jenny Lee Cummings
Jenny first discovered yoga through pure intrigue about 8-9 years ago.
The physiological effects were instant however, it wasn’t until a few years later after returning from living overseas, suffering a devastating loss in my life and also a bad injury that I really delved into the depths of my yoga practice.
I knew in order to get through such a trying time I needed not a mask or a temporary bandaid, I needed to find my true self and here is where yoga truly arrived in my life- the physical spiritual and emotional relationships began to unite.
From here I went on to complete 500hr teacher training both in Australia and overseas.
I think yoga can mean different things for different people- and that’s a beautiful thing.
For me, yoga is being in touch with myself in its purest form. It’s an honest practice of self-acceptance, self-love and discovery through a union of physical asana, pranayama and meditation - all three techniques equally as integral.

Amy is devoted to sharing these ancient practices with others and believes that we are all uniquely drawn to Yoga to heal ourselves.
I have a deep desire to guide people to their own intuitive power through the practice and integration of Yoga.
Everyone has this innate wisdom within them and when we begin to get glimpses we truly start to evolve and transform.
Through my classes I lean on the wisdom of Ayurveda, Tantra and the system we all know and love, Yoga.
I’m here to share how the true practice of Yoga introduces you to you... the power of knowing yourself and the world around you.
The more you tune into the subtleties of who you are, the more you will start to recognise the powerful impacts of these teachings and how they help you to live from the creative and intuitive part of yourself.
It is my life mission to help people integrate these ancient teachings into their modern world.
Hannah has been teaching Mindfulness since 2013 and Yoga since 2016.
Having experienced chronic pain for many years, she is 'fascia-nated' with the connective tissues in the body and how they send loving information to us through the language of sensation.
She completed her 500hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training locally through Yogic Wisdom and Mindfulness (MBSR) Teacher training through Mindfulness Training Institute Australasia. She has since trained extensively with some of the world’s best Yin Yoga and Embodied Movement teachers including Sarah and Ty Powers, Jo Phee, Tom Myers and Karin Gurtner. In 2015,
Hannah was selected to be part of the world’s largest online mindfulness summit, a free online event with 31 of the world’s leading Mindfulness teachers, researchers and experts from around the world.

Yoga has had such a profound impact on Nikki's life, it has become part of her and has helped her to grow and evolve in such a beautiful way.
Initially, I was drawn to the practice and continued to show up to class yet,
I was unaware of how it was weaving its way into my life off the mat as well.
I was always seeking something more, a greater understanding of life and it has been through yoga that my world has made sense. That's what I love about it. Even if you are not consciously aware of all it has to offer, by continuing to show up on your mat with an open mind, the rest simply unfolds.
I have learnt how to quiet my mind, tune into my body, surrender and move through life with greater ease. It has helped me to know and understand my true Self and to connect with the world in a deeper way.
It is because of this practice that I know compassion and kindness,
I know what it is to truly love myself and others and I have experienced the sweetness of joy.
I hope to be able to share these teachings so that you too can experience the benefits of yoga, wherever you're at when you step on to your mat.
