yoga teachers

Ruth Stanton

Ruth Stanton has been living in Adelaide for 9 years, having moved from the UK where she trained in Karuna Yoga with Ruth White, of the Iyengar lineage.

Ruth Stanton has been teaching yoga since 1999, and although her background is very much of the alignment style, she has since trained with many different teachers and schools of yoga, including Satyananda, where the Yoga Nidra tradition originates from. Ruth trained in pregnancy yoga with Sitaram (UK), Pranayama with Philip Xerri (UK), and recently qualified with AAYT to teach yoga for breast cancer with Annette Loudon (Australia). Her recent interest in Yoga Nidra has led to a detailed study of this subject, and her classes often include this deep guided meditation process.

Yin yoga is part of Ruth’s recent journey – and she loves to teach this inward and quietening style of yoga. It’s meditative nature and focus on the breath and release of the fascia is a wonderful way to reconnect with the body.

Her nurturing and intuitive style of yoga is perfect for small classes and her focus is on quietening the mind in order to the balance within. There is joyful bliss inside our hearts, and yoga is the perfect way to find it!

Lisa Hobbs

Lisa Hobbs has been living in Australia for 7 years and came here to work as a hairdresser, however, she soon found other doors opening and took a path into health and fitness.

She had always enjoyed a fit and active lifestyle and as an aside, liked to dabble in meditation and relaxation. In later years she’d see Yoga unite these interests and open me up to a whole new way of living.

In 2015 a friend opened a studio and it was there that she qualified and worked as an instructor. She was naturally drawn to teaching the more mindful, Yoga based classes and so Lisa followed her heart to India to spend time undertaking her teacher training. Since then she has been very fortunate and has had the pleasure of teaching a variety of styles ranging from gentle and restorative to the more vigorous vinyasa styles. Lisa also enjoy teaching meditation and relaxation, and finds no greater satisfaction than to guide others into a state of peaceful bliss. Namaste!
