Yana takes an enormous amount of pride in ensuring that all people who walk into her class feel welcome & are treated with dignity, respect & given the encouragement to achieve exactly what it is that brought them.

For years I have witnessed Yoga change, nourish and help people’s lives. The philosophy of Yoga has enriched my young years and now my early adulthood. It has brought a great sense of fulfilment and honour to be able to help those who have attended my classes.
In my classes you will be guided through a well balanced session integrating relaxation, meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing) and Asanas (Yogic postures/stretches). Catering for the newest beginner to the more advanced student.

I have been interested in health and fitness for a long time. Before having my children I became a qualified personal trainer and Pilates mat work instructor. The knowledge I gained from these courses helped me to stay healthy during my pregnancies and to strengthen my body after my children were born. At the beginning of 2008 I was a new mum and had heard about the holistic benefits of yoga. From the very first class I attended I fell in love with yoga. I knew that I wanted to learn more about yoga and become a yoga teacher.
I draw knowledge from all of my qualifications during my classes and I teach yoga using asana, pranayama and meditation. My goal is for my students to leave my class feeling light, energised, balanced and with increased flexibility. I enjoy teaching hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga. I always provide options for different asanas to allow for the various abilities of the students within the class. I aim to lead a yogic lifestyle and lead my classes in a way that reflects that choice.
Experience a Traditional Shivananda Hatha Yoga class with Michael Matthews from Subramanya Yoga. After spending 3 months completing 500 hours of Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in Southern India, Kerala in 2014, under the yoga guru Bhooma Chaitanya, Michael found an asana style that not only builds physical strength it also creates peace and harmony within.
This traditional Shivanada Hatha Yoga asana sequence you will deepen your practice creating more inner space, steadiness and comfort.
A 1.5 hour lesson will incorporate mantra’s, asanas (poses) and pranayama (breathing techniques). Feel connected to your body again with amazing classes that are “Done with Purpose”. Namaste.
My name is Yoshi and I am originally from Japan however I now call Australia my home.
The Universe gave me an opportunity to attend 2 weeks Ashtanga Yoga retreat in Goa, India, and I stayed there for 2 weeks to practice under the guidance of one of the oldest Ashtanga Yoga practitioners. This was when I noticed the lightness and subtle energy change in my body during the practice and started having a strong affair with Ashtanga Yoga.
I came back to Australia in October 2016 and started teaching here and there. Then again, The Universe gave me an opportunity to teach in Brisbane unexpectedly and I started to teach at a studio in January 2017. Since then, a couple of different opportunities came to me and teaching at Wellwood is one of them, and now here I am to share the love of my yoga with anyone and everyone who are open to the possibilities yoga can give.
