After 5 years of practice, Russell left to Byron Bay and then met his next teacher Bharath Shetty, in Mysore India in 2011 later that year. Russell’s lineage is deeply connected to the roots of Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga, visiting Mysore 7 times over 7 years for self-growth, exploration and inspiration. Russell’s current passion is uniting asana and astrology, while being mentored by Byron Bay Vedic Astrologer, Sadhu Priya das.


PJ D`opera    Asana and Food.


PJ’s love of Yoga and teaching has evolved from casually attending yoga classes 10 years ago to a more active approach for pain relief. The idea of teaching yoga to others was a natural progression and now assists PJ in furthering her own understanding and practice. The focus of her practice is built around the understanding of human physiology and consciously engaging the appropriate muscles. PJ’s working history has always been in the hospitality / food industry, which combined with my yoga practice, has actively educated me towards a health conscious way of living. PJ and her husband now work towards growing and producing the majority of our food in the most natural and symbiotic processes possible on their Busselton farm.
