YOUR YOGA TEACHERS & HOSTS
Hi I'm Georgia and I am passionate about sharing the empowering and transformative practice of Yoga. I've practiced Yoga for over 15 years and have trained and worked in Bali, India, Thailand and Indonesia. I now live and work on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula with my family.
I love to bring together my experience in music, dance and wellness to create thoughtful, creative and soulful classes with an emphasis on healing.
I have run several successful retreats, events and teacher trainings before and I love to create special, sacred and memorable experiences to help people step out of the every day and connect back to themselves.
Georgia Hicks- RYT 500 hour
"Georgia loves Yoga and her passion comes across through her teaching. Georgia creates a nurturing environment for her students to grow. I feel so empowered by her and her classes."
Dr. Teresa McGannon- RYT 330 hours
Hi I’m Teresa or as most people call me 'Tee'. I am a Chiropractor and Yoga Teacher. I have also explored aspects of other healing modalities such as Reiki.
I love learning and also teaching. Connection is my passion. I love holding space for people to allow them to heal, connect to themselves, to others and to their environment.
I view life as an ever changing adventure that we can learn to navigate, given some guidance and tools. I enjoy to help people find more balance in their work, play, passion, service and I encourage people to be the fullest expression of who they really are at their core. I have completed 330 hours of yoga teacher training including yin (200hrs vinyasa and 130hrs yin). I can’t wait to help to facilitate this retreat and nurture you as you fill up your own cup!
"Tee holds the space so beautifully, truly giving me permission to listen to my body, soften and heal. Her Yin classes are such a gift and always leave me feeling so present and peaceful"
