Cathryn Humphrey

Cathryn is part owner and operator of the studio and found her passion for yoga after a serious knee injury. Prior to teaching yoga Cathryn was a professional water-skier with over 13 National Championships to her name and a member of the Australian Team for over 15 years. Whilst competing, Cathryn studied a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education at Charles Sturt University and amongst her skiing career spent time in the classroom as a teacher.

A snapped ACL in her knee put her water skiing career on hold and this is when Cathryn grew to love yoga. Cathryn studied Yoga with the Byron Yoga Centre and gained her accreditation in December 2014. Although relatively new to yoga teaching, her background in elite sports gives her an edge when teaching and working with athletes and people suffering injury.

With a Bachelor of Education, she is great when working with kids and brings a new dimension to teaching yoga to children.

Cathryn loves adventure and enjoys mountain bike riding, boxing, skiing and playing music. Cathryn’s goal is to make yoga fun and accessible to everyone, and you definitely experience this when you enter her studio.

 

Amy Vaccaro

Amy is part owner and operator of the studio and has been practicing various styles of yoga in various settings on and off since she was 17.  After the birth of her children and the associated stressors of parenting, Amy began practicing yoga more regularly and the associated benefits propelled her to undertake her yoga teacher training, first in pre and postnatal yoga and then general yoga teacher training under the mentorship of Cathryn and Bronnie Wilmot (Aisha Flow Yoga).

Amy is a Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife and has lectured extensively in both disciplines at TAFE and university levels.  This training informs much of her yoga teaching, especially prenatal classes.

Outside yoga, Amy has a diverse range of interests including language and culture, art, singing, cooking and eating wholefoods and hanging out with family, friends and her dog Sally.

Amy’s goal in teaching yoga is to provide space for people of diverse backgrounds to experience peace and calm on the yoga mat that they can take into their daily lives to enhance their wellness and the wellness of those around them.
