Guest Teacher Bios

Flo Fenton

Flo has been practising yoga since 1991, and teaching since 1997. Since the early 1990s Flo has studied Iyengar yoga with Glenn Ceresoli as well as the Sydney Yoga Centre. In 1999 she completed the Yoga Arts Nine-Month teacher training intensive with Louise Sear in Byron Bay. Flo has continued her studies with Dena Weisman (nee Kingsberg), Matthew Sweeney, Clive Sheridan, and the Satyananda Yoga Academy and is currently studying Yoga Therapy at post graduate level with the Vinniyoga Healing Foundation.

Flo focuses on finding our natural ease within the postures, and on cultivating an ever deepening awareness of the relationship between the body, the breath, and our state of mind. She teaches precise awareness of alignment in the postures, through the medium of graceful, flowing sequences in synchrony with the breath. Her style is both meditative and enlivening, balancing the active and the passive sides of our nature. As we focus within, developing the capacity to witness ourselves, the sessions themselves become a form of Yoga Therapy, which flows out into our lives beyond the class-room.

Flo is a regular contributor to Australian Yoga Life magazine, and writes the regular 'Yoga Matters' segment for Nature and Health magazine. She is currently registered with Yoga Alliance at the highest possible level of teaching experience, ERYT-500, and a Registered Senior Teacher with Yoga Australia and a qualifed Yoga Therapist with the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists (AAYT).

Linda Jenkin

Linda is an IYTA-trained yoga teacher and has taught for 17 years both at Avalon Beach in Sydney and on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. She teaches weekly classes as well as regular workshops in both Sydney and the Sunshine Coast. Linda believes workshops are a way in which to help expand one’s understanding of the experiential science of yoga.

Her main yoga influences have been Iyengar yoga and her teachers for the past 30 years, Carolyn Harris and Rick Birrell. Through their influence she has gained the inspiration and confidence to adopt an eclectic style of teaching, prompting her students to explore their own potential—physically, mentally and spiritually.

 Linda sees yoga as offering the opportunity for continual self-discovery and transformation. Her aim as a yoga teacher is to promote flexibility and strength both in body and mind, with a playful, down-to-earth approach. She has a passion for yoga, just as she has a passion for life!

Marian Cavanagh

Marian teaches a flowing style of yoga that nurtures, energises and deeply relaxes the body and mind. The aim of her classes is to help you find energy and joy in your practice, to feel the connection between your body, mind, breath and spirit, and to understand yourself more deeply through your practice.

Classes begin with a focus on the breath, and we then flow from pose to pose, gradually warming up. We then move into energising sequences and deeply held poses to build energy, strength and flexibility. Each class concludes with deep relaxation and pranayama to balance and revitalise both body and mind.
 
Marian trained in the Radiant Light style of yoga, an uplifting balance of dynamic flowing sequences and nurturing poses, designed to bring ease of movement to the body and relaxed focus to the mind. Through an awareness of the breath, this style energises while developing a feeling of balance and peace within. Marian feels deeply blessed to be able to share what she has learnt from her teachers Akash and Adam.
 
Marian has completed both Level 1 and Level 2 yoga teacher training, and has full membership with Yoga Australia.
