Yoga is the culture of tomorrow. It is a science that leads to the development of the human personality and the awakening of untapped energy sources” – Swami Niranjan

Yoga is a systematic program whose soul purpose is spiritual. Whether we call it enlightenment, self realisation or other similar terms it is designed to enhance human possibility. The purpose for working with the physical body is so that the body is not an obstacle in practises such as yoga meditation, contemplation and prayer. Obstacles to these spiritual practises are naturally minimised or completely removed in the process of following yoga. The word yoga means union. Referring to the direct experience of the wholeness of ourselves at all levels. While the word yoga comes from the traditional Sanskrit language, that union is a universal process and involves the practise of inclusiviness.

By | Articles | No Comments


In a busy world we often get caught up in the chatter that stops us from being focused and connecting to a deeper guiding layer of ourselves. It’s this deeper layer that helps us to attune to our inner peace and contentment. Through YogaCoaching we are able to remove interruptions , re-connect and live to our full potential.

So what is YogaCoaching and how does it allow us to connect to our potential?

When talking about yoga and the definition of yoga the texts talk about yoga – chitta vritti nirodha. Chitta ‘the mindfield’, vritti ‘the movements of the mind’, nirodha ‘mastery’. Yoga is “the mastery of the movements of the mind”.

Any physical activity, from jogging to sneezing, can cause harm, and underqualified and inexperienced teaches have the capacity yo harm in any situation, not just a yoga class.

Australian Yoga Journal, January 2011

Mark Breadner, 45, attended his first yoga class when he was seven—at home with his mother as the teacher. It was not until he was 27 and studying with T.K.V. Desikachar that he understood yoga as a way of life. Over the past 20 years, he has used his holistic and therapeutic approach to yoga as a teacher and trainer with leading yoga schools in Sydney as well as working with elite athletes including swimmer Ian Thorpe and surfer Mick Fanning. Last year he established YogaCoach, a holistic teacher training school that helps yogis and their students reach full potential in all aspects of life.
