My name is Fyona, I am the owner and founder of Yoga Brave and a registered Yoga Teacher certified with Yoga Australia. I specialise in classic Hatha, Vinvasa, Yin, Frontline, Meditation, Pranayama.
I instruct classes for Yoga beginners, general enthusiasts, sports specific, women's health, corporates and workplaces as well as for children and HSC students through Drama Karma.
Yoga, wellness, retreat hosting, the built environment, beauty, skin care, and energetic healing are all in my toolkit. However, my Dharma is to share Yoga. To teach you to breathe again, to feel safe in your body, calm in your mind and inspired in your spirit. We all crave connection, Yoga connects us back to OUR true selves and shows us how to be whole, as we began...
I loved how personal it all was, it was tailored to everyone, we all got to experience things within our own boundaries and create safe spaces for ourselves within a beautiful surrounding. There was never any judgement passed, it just felt safe. The experience for me shifted something that needed shifting for many many many years, it opened me to potential within myself and it felt like a moment of rebirth for me, a space I was able to forgive and forget some of the trauma that held me back from being myself.
I loved the ocean views and sounds from my bedroom. Arriving to a little note (which I still have) from Fyona and bracelet. The food became a highlight to see what the next healthy and colourful meal would be. It really inspired me when I got back to keep cooking with a healthier knowledge. The Vanuatu people are so beautiful, with shining souls and big smiles which make you feel instantly comfortable and safe... The Crystal clear water was the best to swim in and stare at during every yoga practice... The snorkelling was the best I’d ever experienced, especially on our sailing trip to swim with turtles. The true friendships and bonding between the woman really helped me heal parts of myself... For me it was so nice to have big belly laughs with woman without any alcohol... The connections made were so strong because we were disconnected from our phones... I think I had a massage everyday! Thank you so much to Fyona - giving her time, energy and soul to us for the week. Every minute of the day she was there for us and did a special session with my Mum and I to overcome some boundaries we had built up due to the realities and stresses of every day family life... For that I’m overwhelmingly grateful. Best week of my life - already booked the next one! Xxx
Well I will be going again. I went on the Vanuatu Yoga Retreat in July 2019 with Fyona she was so inspiring she made us so welcome the place were it was held was amazing, I have been to a lot of retreats, but this one was definitely the best Yoga retreat ever!
I always leave Yoga Brave classes feeling renewed and refreshed. The beautiful environment, Fyona's calmness and support and the small class size all combine for an amazing restorative yoga class. It's a judgement-free zone where everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace and level.
Fyona is the most beautiful soul yoga teacher. I swear every Saturday morning she knows exactly what I need, and her practice always speaks to me. I love enjoying this yoga time just for me, with a beautiful bunch of ladies.
Practicing yoga with Fy is like melting softly into a big warm hug. She knows what your body and soul needs, without you even saying anything. She has a warmth and wisdom, but just the right amount of cheeky to make you feel connected, challenged and loved. Love ya Fy. Ps if you want to gift yourself with love and nurturing, do yourself a favour and do a retreat with Fyona. No words can express the uplifting, shifting, and nurturing she provides from beginning to end and all the small details in between.
I had the privilege of having Fyona as a teacher at Sanctuary yoga, now I attend Yoga Brave weekly. Not all people can just train and be authentic yogi masters, however Fyona was made for this special job. Her calming voice, kind heart and love for yoga shines in every class.
Fyona creates a safe, encouraging and joyful environment where students of all ages are made to feel welcome. My daughter has loved her first experience of yoga under Fyona's guidance and cannot wait to start again in the new year.
Fyona provided a wholistic space that enabled me to check in with myself and respond to arising feelings. The weekly ritual of Yoga with Fy provided fun, exercise and centring that was essential to a balanced and healthy HSC year.
I have to say Fyona has such a way with her class, always making us feel cared for and connected. She is a true intuit at work. She weaves in just enough extra concepts to broaden our focus for a richer experience without overstimulation of the senses. She is always mindful to point out correct posture, but allows personal exploration to drive our needs. The first thing I notice after a short break away, is its effect on my digestive system. Fabulous!
