Susanne Jones

Specializations
Meditation Teacher
General Yoga Teaching
Relaxation

Susanne has been practicing yoga & meditation since she was a teenager. First introduced to yoga and meditation as 'sport' in high school, she has since attended classes and retreats with many teachers and schools of both yoga and meditation. 

Susanne has a strong earth-based spiritualist focus to her life which she combines with her understanding of Buddhist teaching to create a dynamic style.

12 years ago she began yoga practice more vigorously first in a gym and then with teachers of Iyengar Yoga.

 Her meditation practice continued to strengthen, and in 2012 as she approached retirement from the Department of Education, Susanne was inspired to open the Meditation Space so there was a place in Campbelltown that offered what she wanted.

Susanne offers counselling and as a Death Doula and end of life consultant.

Victoria Waldran Hahn

Specializations
Remedial Yoga
Beginners
Senior Yoga

Victoria has a life long interest in yoga, having personally experienced the vast health benefits that come with a consistent yoga & meditation practice.  With almost 20 years of teaching experience, her life’s journey is to share this with others.  

Classes focus on the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of yoga. We start with strength, flexibility, alignment and stress reduction and this leads gradually to the more subtle changes that make yoga transformational. 


Victoria’s classes are inclusive to a broad range of student needs, providing for beginners, experienced practitioners as well as people who have long standing illness or physical challenges.

Lesa Kennedy

Specializations
Vinyasa Yoga

Lesa has worked in special education for 15 years. She began introducing yoga to the students at school 2 years ago, finding that it taught them to use the practice and breath to reduce anxiety as well as for fitness and strength.

 Lesa has been practicing yoga on a personal level for 9 years, teaching vinyasa flow for 2 years. Lesa's teaching style has evolved into flow, connecting to the breath because through our breath we can calm our minds and our bodies.

Her personal spiritual journey began 20 years ago, feeling passionate in the need to share all that she has learned along the way in an effort to help others find a sense of peace in a progressively busy world which demands so much of us, taking us further away from our personal truth. Coming together through yoga, we build a collective energy creating Peace and harmony within ourselves .

"To change the world we must first change ourselves".
