Carol Alvis

Hi, my name is Carol Alvis. I was born in 1971 and have lived in Townsville all my life. The first time I practiced yoga was in 2002, I practised on and off for the next 3 years but I got serious about my yoga practice in April 2005 after the birth of my second son, I needed a way to get back into shape, I also needed to find a way to relax.


Kylie Jaques

I absolutely love yoga and have no doubt it will be part of my life forever. I first started practising yoga in 2000 when I dropped into one of Nigel Treloar’s classes at the Yoga Space on Ingham Road, I was hooked!


Nigel Treloar

I started yoga while travelling extensively in India and Sri Lanka from 1982-1983. Soon after returning to London, I embarked on a serious quest to learn more about yoga.


Jasmine Healy-Pagan

A former competitive swimmer, high school teacher and fitness trainer, Jasmine was first drawn to yoga while living in New York City in the 1990s.


Linda Sharpe

Having enjoyed many a yoga class over the years, I felt a need to immerse myself more deeply in the practice to gain a clearer understanding of what yoga was all about. In 2013, I left a position in the corporate world of Finance to embark on a journey to study yoga in the country of origin, India.

Tracey’s sharing of the ancient practice of yoga encourages students to lovingly dissolve physical, emotional, and energetic barriers to reveal the clarity, peace, and the sweet magnificence of life that is always within us. Her strong yet playful teaching style is anchored in the ancient traditions of hatha yoga, yoga nidra, tantric and vedantic philosophies, as well as guided pranic awareness and movement, and drawing from the rich and subtle healing qualities of the natural elements around us.

Gratitude and inspiration for Tracey’s sharing arises from her yoga community and all teachers throughout her journey, including Sri Swami Sivananda, Sri Swami Vishnudevananda, and especially from Clive Sheridan.
