Karla Brodie

Karla is an experienced and qualified Yoga teacher. She is inspired to share the practice and philosophy of yoga in a simple, joyful, self renewing way. Her practical and intuitive approach leads students toward a deeper experiential understanding of breath, balanced posture and integrated movement. Karla has specialised in teaching restorative yoga for over 20 years.

The foundation of Karla’s teaching is within the Basic Neurocellular Patterns and the study of Body-Mind Centering. Embodying these self renewing patterns restores effortless breathing, ease, fluidity and cohesion in movement. Karla’s teachings, inspired by her teacher, friend and mentor Donna Farhi, offer a holistic approach to the art, science and practice of Yoga.
