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 Iyengar method under the guidance of Simon Marrocco. Romina continues her professional development both locally and internationally with the Iyengar Family and Senior Iyengar Yoga teachers.  She regularly studies at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India and is an Intermediate Junior Level 1 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.  Romina believes that everyone should have the opportunity to experience Yoga no matter what age, colour or religious background or ability. "There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they have finished a class".

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.

Nikki Little

Nikki first started practicing yoga in 2000 as a way of building strength after an injury but soon found that it became a way to help her find the balance in managing a demanding corporate life.

 

She started practising with the teachers at Yoga to Go in 2003 and continued to develop a curiosity and passion for the philosophy that supports the physical practise. Nikki commenced her teacher training with Alan Goode in 2007 and is now an Introductory Level II certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher.

 

She has continued to develop her interest and understanding through ongoing professional development with Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers. She enjoys the opportunity to assist students in developing their own practise and understanding how the practise of Yoga can have a positive impact on other areas of your life.

Robyn Sgambellone

Robyn was introduced to yoga 15 years ago and it became an integral part of her life and daily practice more recently. Although she has practiced and studied various yoga methods over the years and is grateful for the journey she has taken with them, Iyengar yoga is the methodology she now practices, deeply studies and teaches.


Robyn’s yoga practice has enriched her life and is a constant support through times of physical, mental and emotional challenge. In line with her methodology, Robyn’s classes focus on developing strength and stamina, flexibility and balance, concentration and meditation. Ultimately, Robyn hopes to inspire students through her teaching so that they go on to discover the depth of the practice themselves.


As well as being a Yoga Teacher, Robyn is a Mother and Human Resources professional.

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.
