Jacqueline Bohuslav-Andrews – Founder
Jacqueline, a yoga teacher of 20 years, originally studied hatha yoga at Melbourne’s Gita International Yoga School. Led by curiosity and self-inquiry, she completed post-graduate qualifications in Mindfulness Based Stillness Meditation (MBSM), traditional Yogic Meditation, Progressive Yoga Relaxation and Esoteric Philosophy. Today her teaching reflects her combined formal education, her life experience, her love of yoga and the self-discovery that emerges with this practice.
Having taught yoga in Castlemaine for the past 15 years, Jacqueline has recently relocated to Melbourne with her family and offers Mindfulness training programs in workplaces through her new business: Lógos – Mindfulness at Work: www.mindfulness.melbourne
She also teaches yoga on a Friday morning (9:30am) in Brighton.
Jacqueline continues to deepen her understanding of yoga & meditation via courses at the Gita International Yoga School and studies with Swamini Vinayananda from the Chinmaya Mission. Occasional studies with Swami Govindananda from the Sivananda tradition and time spent at the Ian Gawler Yarra Valley Living Centre have also enriched her teaching. At present, she is enjoying delving further into the Krishnamacharya approach to yoga, learning from Vedic chant teacher trainer Debby Badger.

She is a graduate of both Levels 1 & 2 Purna Yoga (Byron Yoga Centre).

Grace started practicing yoga around 25 years ago. Initially drawn to yoga as a physical activity, she soon discovered that yoga leads to a broader sense of self-discovery through a range of practices that focus on the breath, meditation and philosophy as well as the asanas.
Grace’s journey has drawn her to practice a range of yoga forms and approaches. Grace has completed formal studies at the Australian College of Classical Yoga, with the respected AG and Indra Mohan (India) and is currently extending her knowledge by studying at the Australasian Yoga Institute.
Her aim is to allow a gentle exploration of the interplay between strength and flexibility, the need for stillness and movement and the importance of the breath – the delicious inhales and exhales that underpin every aspect of yoga.
Those who attend are encouraged to allow themselves to let go of ideas of perfection and to truly focus on what they need in that moment, at that time. A yoga session really is a time to honour your self.
