Georgia has explored many styles of Yoga and doing everything from dedicated Ashtanga practice and Kundalini practice to competing in a National Bikram Yoga competition! She still loves an inversion or arm balance, but these days her practice is much more philosophically based, grounded and intentional. 

In 2016 Georgia had her first child and really explored the world of prenatal, postnatal and neonatal Yoga which she is still passionate about today. She also used this time to slow down her practice and focus even more on philosophy, Meditation and Pranayama completing several courses in these areas.

She is really dedicated to empowering her students to find their voice through Yoga Teaching and her graduates are now doing everything from chair Yoga, to SUP Yoga, to mental health work. 

 

Georgia has taught yoga in Bali, Jakarta and India and to people of all ages but now calls the Mornington Peninsula home with her greatest Yoga teachers of all- Isla (4) and Johnny (2.)
