“Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation. Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony, within each person and with each other”.

Oliv Tree Yoga commenced in 2018 after I completed my Diploma of Yoga Teaching with the Victorian Institute of Yoga Education and Teacher Training (VIYETT). As an accredited yoga teacher (with Yoga Australia) my approach is to really get to know you so that I can provide a holistic response that is tailored to your needs. I am especially interested in assisting students, community groups, and those experiencing trauma and social isolation.
I currently teach regular open classes in Eltham at Diamond Creek Community Centre and closed classes for women from The Salvation Army Crossroads.
I also teaching regular open classes with Salvos Yoga at Reservoir (9:15am) & Coburg North (1:15pm) on Fridays and in Preston on Tuesday nights (starting September 3) to book a class just click on the Salvos Yoga logo.

The aim of this community is to educate and develop awareness of the benefits of these techniques in conjunction with the psychological support that clients in trauma recovery may already be receiving”.
As a Trauma Aware yoga practitioner I can help you to learn how to calm your mind and regain safety in your body. Trauma sensitive yoga can help you regain a sense of empowerment and choice for yourself.
