Georgia first discovered yoga about eight years ago after she broke her back and was in desperate need of some pain relief and assistance in gaining full mobility back in her body. After pursuing many avenues, it was yoga that really clicked and became a considerable part of her rehabilitation. Having experienced firsthand the incredible impact yoga can have both physically and mentally, Georgia felt the desire to share it with others. She started out teaching family in the lounge room and friends down at the beach before she seriously considered teaching yoga professionally.
“Beyond the physical benefits, yoga is important to me for many reasons. Practising clears my mind, gives me a greater sense of perspective and always leaves me with a sense of relaxation, vitality and joy. Yoga has shaped how I see the world and how I would like to contribute.”
Georgia’s qualifications include: Yoga Arts Level One 200 hour Teacher Training- Bali 2016; training with Louisa Sear, Emil Wendel, Stuart Girling and Anouk Petzoldt.
“What I love most about teaching is being able to provide the space for students to decompress, reconnect and feel really good about themselves. It’s very rewarding to know that yoga can change someone’s day for the better, which no doubt has a ripple effect off the mat and out into the world.”
What makes Dharma Shala so special to you?
“Dharma Shala is an incredibly special sanctuary. I feel embraced by a very nurturing energy in the space and from the wonderful family of teachers. I respect the integrity to a traditional practice and lineage, it’s authentic and admirable. A real gem within the Bondi community. When I practise and teach here I am reminded of the true essence of yoga.”
