S2G Avid Grower/Studio Owner/Passionate Teacher
Sammy has been an experienced and qualified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor since 2010.
Before this, Sammy was 109Kgs with Diagnosed Depression and Anxiety, on the waiting list for 2 Knee Reconstructions (since 2005) and developing signs of scoliosis and degeneration of the spine. This was all before the age of 20. After seeing a very confronting photo of herself at 19 being 109kgs, it became apparent to Sammy that it was time for change.
Physical changes were becoming obvious, and the subconscious state of her mindset began to flourish. Sammy lost 40kgs in 3 months, clothes sizes changed from 2XL to Medium, she quit her job as a Book Keeper and started her journey with a Cert IV in Fitness. From here, Sammy has solely established a successful business and reputable name for herself in the Somerset Region, with Sammy’s Fitness launch in 2013.
In 2015, Sammy was introduced to a local Yoga Studio & Teacher!
“I felt like this was another part of my path in life, like something was grabbing me from the Solar Plexus and pulling me to where I was meant to be … unbeknown to me at the time, it was that feeling of coming home!”
A new light on life was shown to Sammy with regular practicing, which sparked her interest in starting her 350hr Yoga Teacher Training, and ultimately to the place she is now!
“Again, it was like I’d found the Holy Grail and was drinking from the cup every practice. I knew with every cell… well… that I had finally ‘SHOWED UP’ and I’m present in my life. I wanted to also share this with others… the ability to create the SPACE TO GROW your self."
Sammy has only practiced in HATHA Yoga but with her passionate knowledge of the body and Anatomy, with deeper knowledge from Professional Teachers like Leslie Kaminoff, Sammy also follows the philosophies of Iyengar, Paramahansa Yogananda, Rolf Gates, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev and many unnamed teachers of peace, harmony and kindness.
Sammy is 500HR Yoga & Meditation Teacher Trained, with Studies (both current & continuing) in Tantra Yoga, Yoga Sutras & Vedic Texts under guidance of Swami Sarvananda and Sound Therapy. Sammy is unsure as to how far she will journey with her practice, but will continue to practice until the last breathe.
Kids yoga is facilitated by Sammy, she has a background in child development, specifically encouraging overall health and wellness, and has a personal passion encouraging others into a healthy happy and balanced lifestyle.
Sammy is a big kid at heart, and first hand is aware of how scary and big the world can be, if conditioned in this way, but is also passionate about incorporating a view that the world is not at all scary and can be magical if you see the Wonder in your own creations.
“Its not a job for me, this is my lifestyle. I believe in creating the change you wish to be in the world, and my passion is to encourage others to create the world they wish to walk in, with Love, Compassion & Kindness.”
Sammy has been working with developmental needs and early education programs since 2010, with extensive knowledge around the physical & mental connection for healthy body & mind function.
“I open and accept all that is to be, the experience of life will always yield Love!”
Vinyasa Teacher/Student of Yoga/Lover of all things Natural
Kayla is 400HR Yoga and Meditation Teacher, her passion is Vinyasa Yoga, but also loves teaching Pregnancy, Mums and Bubs, and Restorative Yoga.
Kayla is passionate about sharing her love of Yoga and teaches from a playful, kind and loving place. It is her intention to create a space where students are able to connect intimately with themselves through movement and breath leading towards self-awareness and transformation.
Kayla discovered Yoga three years ago with the intention of finding something that would help with a hip injury. It didn’t take long for her to fall in love with all the benefits of a Yoga practice beyond the physical.
Having struggled with self-confidence throughout most of her life she was shocked at the changed perception of herself after practicing Yoga.
“I felt like I was seeing myself and the universe clearly for the first-time. Yoga guided me back to myself, I finally saw my strengths and I knew I was worthy of happiness.”
“I realised I deserve more than the habitual self-destructive patterns I had been repeating all my life, I deserved love, I deserved to love myself.”
Kayla first stumbled upon her passion for teaching when a friend asked her to show her some basic Yoga postures and movements.
“I observed how relaxed and calm my friend was after trying yoga for the first time, her complete alter in energy, I knew at that moment that this was what I needed to do.”
“I knew this was my path, that I needed to share this practice with the world. “
“Something I love about Yoga is that there is always something to learn or discover about myself.”
