MEET THE BALLAN YOGA & PILATES COMMUNITY
"I've been a lover of Yoga & Pilates for over twenty years. My first experience of Pilates was Mari Windsor Pilates VHS tapes!
Yoga was always something that seemed out of reach and scary to me in my twenties, but after intense training as a rock climber (in another life), I discovered Yoga as a way to recover from injury and reset my body.
The long stretches of Yin were so powerful for me at the time. I still regularly practice various types of Yoga and Pilates, and as I get older I've learnt to appreciate that there are so many different varieties to choose from - my back injuries and mental well-being have always benefitted.
My drive to become a Yoga & Pilates instructor came from my desire to bring all the local talent of the Moorabool Shire to one central location & share my love of the practice with others . Now that I'm certified, I hope to share my passion with others in Ballan and beyond."
She's been practicing yoga for 10 years and has a passion in sharing & providing a safe space for people to delve into a meditative state through Yoga, Movement & Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls. Brydie loves both the physical and spiritual side to yoga & feels inspired about the ancient philosophy & teachings of yoga on & off the mat in her life.
Brydie’s teaching style likes focus on the union between movement and breath through playful Vinyasa yoga sequencing. Holding the space for others to release & encourage a sense of self inquiry amongst an inclusive community environment is what makes Brydie’s heart sing! She has been teaching movement/structured dance styles for many years and due to this experience she has a love for alignment within the postures and teaches the physical and spiritual benefits of this ancient practice in a relatable and practical way.
Brydie teaches vinyasa yoga, restorative yoga, yin yoga, pranayama (breathing techniques), womb yoga, Mums & Bubs yoga, and is always attending trainings and workshops to learn as many new skills as possible! Brydie believes yoga is accessible to everybody and feels that the practice brings us a sense of connectedness to ourselves and the world around us.Brydie runs yoga classes in-studio.
