Karla Brodie

Yoga as is a timeless art and science of arriving in the present moment with vivid aliveness, interconnected to all of life.

My intention is to share regenerative movement and rest practices that may cultivate the qualities joy, ease, grace and surrender. I’m passionate about by the ‘as-it-is-ness’ of how we are, answered by our cells, and how an authentic and nourishing movement practice might emerge. It’s a joy to be a part of the ‘Art of Teaching’ with you, Donna is my beloved teacher and I look forward to sharing some of my favourite practices.

Karla’s offerings are founded in the study of nature, embodied anatomy, and deep rest.

She is inspired to share the practice of yoga to enhance awareness of breath, movement and conscious rest in everyday life. Karla is dedicated to refining the art of teaching through mindful inquiry based language, subtle yet effective touch, and integrated embodiment through self-renewing, effortless effort.

Over numerous years as a passionate ‘rester’, Karla has in collaborated with a community of dedicated students and colleagues to create a unique and innovative approach to the practice of Restorative Yoga.

Neal Ghoshal

Neal has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years and teaching since 2003. He sees Yoga as a guide to restoring our place and understanding of who we are and how we can live peacefully, happily and fulfilled.

Deeply influenced by Donna Farhi’s approach (as well as other inspirational leaders in Yoga), Neal’s teaching focuses on exploring and refining natural movement and alignment principles – learning to embody these principles in a way that may take our practice into our everyday lives.

Neal has taught on teacher training programs in Australia and New Zealand, has been part of senior faculty on Donna Farhi’s Advanced Teacher Training. Along with his friend and colleague Karla Brodie, he is a founder member and part of the core faculty of Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training.

Ultimately, the practice of Yoga leads us to a place where we may respond to life’s challenges with ease in our breath and body, with wise choices, and with kindness and a compassionate heart.

Neal’s Continuity Classes
