Irene Ais

Irene Ais has spent 15 years exploring the ancient practice of yoga and takes her students on a journey to discover the power it has to transform lives.

Irene’s mantra is founded on awareness – she believes our relationship with life transforms when we begin the journey of self discovery.

Her extensive time studying the mind and body through yoga, physiotherapy, AcroYoga and Pilates adds a unique dimension to her teachings. This knowledge coupled with an innate understanding of the mind/body connection makes for a powerful combination.

Irene is passionate about helping students navigate physical poses whilst offering an invitation to drop into the energetic practice. The layers inherent in her teaching draw participants out of the thinking mind and present an experience of deeper self-awareness.

Irene’s strong Hatha Yoga classes will challenge students to explore their edge and find the joy in movement, whilst she focuses on finding each practitioners‘ unique alignment.

Irene has been facilitating 200hr trainings for 3 years, regularly leads advanced teacher immersions and is the creator of the sold out Therapeutic Yoga for Health Professionals course.

Josh Blau

Josh has garnered quite a following in Melbourne where he is known for his energetic, transformative and inspiring classes. Deeply respectful of the origins of yoga and acutely aware of modern day needs, Josh brings everyday balance and flow to his teachings.

Forever a student, Josh spent time training in L.A with acclaimed Black Dog Yoga and global training hub Sri Dharma Mittra at Dharma Yoga Centre in New York City, as well as taking many trips to India to connect with the origins of this ancient practice.

One of his talents lies in supporting and facilitating teachers and students of all levels to embrace their fears through focusing on alignment, technique and gaining a deeper understanding of the purpose and place of each asana.  Josh’s commitment to a daily practice and his own desire to deepen his own knowledge makes him an inspiring teacher.

Josh’s passion is to guide people to a place where they can feel more connected to themselves. In this quest to facilitate a higher state of consciousness in his students, he brings pranayama, meditation and kirtan to his classes.

Josh’s personal mantra is fostering a deep connection to self as he believes when this occurs, we can begin to live life in a state of balance and flow.
