Iyengar Yoga Beginner l 6 week course


This class is taught by:

Romina Sesto

Romina has been practicing Yoga since the early 90's. Initially drawn to Yoga for the stress release it offered to a hectic corporate lifestyle. What seemingly became a hobby soon became a way of life.

 

In early 2007 she was fortunate enough to undertake a 6 month Intensive Yoga Teacher Training program in India under the guidance of Bharath Shetty who was heavily influenced by the Iyengar method. Later that year she became more involved in the teachings of Iyengar Yoga and the effects it has on injuries, misalignments and posture, it was at this stage that she was able to appreciate the beneficial nature Iyengar Yoga has when practiced regularly, not just physically, but mentally and spiritually.

 

On returning to Australia she was offered a position as Studio Manager at Yoga To Go in Sydney and commenced Teacher Training within the Iyenagr method under the guidance of Simon Marrocco. Romina continues her professional development both locally and internationally with Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers, and regularly studies with the Iyengar family at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India. She is an Introductory Level II certified Iyengar Yoga teacher.

 

Romina is the Director of Yoga To Go Studio, she enjoys teaching a wide cross section of the community ranging from Teenagers to adults and local community groups; she believes that everyone should have the opportunity to experience Yoga no matter what age, colour or religious background. "There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they have finished a class".

 

Renee Stridfeldt

Renee Stridfield is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and has been studying/ practising Yoga since 2003. She completed teacher training with Caroline Coggans in 2015 and has studied with the Iyengar Family both locally, overseas and in Pune India at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute.

 

Her teaching style is compassionate yet motivating, encouraging each individual to work to their potential. She enjoys sharing yoga with people of all ages and abilities, and works to foster a sense of discovery and confidence with students as they develop greater strength, flexibility, and awareness in their practice.

Pauline Caminiti

Pauline's interest in yoga developed from her very first yoga class, that deepened in 2004 when she completed a 9 month teacher training with Yoga Arts in Byron Bay. She comes with a strong background and teacher training in the Iyengar tradition, she started teaching in 2005 and continues to study under the guidance of Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher Glenn Ceresoli.

 

A passionate and dedicated teacher, assisting each student through instruction, demonstration and adjusting where needed. Pauline wishes to create an authentic environment in which students can experience the deeply therapeutic effects of yoga.

 

Classes with Pauline will explore inventive and balanced asana sequences with the use of breath awareness and correct alignment. She encourages students to challenge themselves in a way that allows a safe and sustained practice to help increase flexibility, build strength and gain confidence.

Sarah Bourne

Sarah Bourne first practiced yoga over 20 years ago, when she had her first child, and attended pre and post-natal classes. With a child and work, life became busy, so she only dabbled in Yoga for the next few years. After two more children, Sarah attended a casual class at Yoga to Go, and her passion for yoga was re-ignited. She quickly established a daily practice, and embarked on her teacher training with Alan Goode.

 

Sarah is a mother of three, runs her own Counselling practice and writes novels. Yoga gives her the balance that she needs to juggle the demands and joys of a busy life. In her teaching she aims to provide students with the space not only to enhance their overall sense of physical wellbeing, but also to reflect and discover what it is that they need in order to reach their fullest potential, whatever that may be, both on and off the mat.

The course begins with the basic foundation postures (asana), over the 6 weeks; new poses are introduced while understanding of existing ones are deepened. The primary focus is on imparting a solid grounding and correct alignment in the postures. Ideal for those with no previous experience with yoga, or who have had an extended break from practice.
