About Bobbi

“I began practicing yoga in 1996 in Sydney, Australia with Simon Borg Olivier.  I knew from my first class that this was my path; to study and to teach.  After 7 years, I decided to attend a 9 month residential training in Byron Bay, Australia. I am amazed at the healing power of yoga. I believe in a holistic approach therefore my personal practice encompasses meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques) and asana (postures) as well as the daily practice of gratitude, compassion and determination.”

Her own practice is Ashtanga Yoga which she teaches daily. She is also skilled with teaching Therapeutic/Restorative, Pre Natal, Aging Adults, Yoga for Kids and Yoga in Recovery.
