Miriam is a senior yoga teacher at Yoga Australia. She first came to yoga because she had very bad sciatica pain and could hardly stand up or sit comfortably. This was due to bad posture and a scoliosis she developed during her younger years growing up.
After attending her first yoga class in 1993 she noticed that her body felt much better and over time her posture started to improve and she had no more pain. With regular practice, Miriam discovered yoga’s benefits in both body and mind, planting a seed that has never stopped growing.
Having studied various disciplines of yoga since 1998, Miriam now teaches a ‘flow’ style of yoga. Her classes are informative and fun and are influenced by her belief in practising with awareness and with intention, developing breath awareness, meditative peace, learn postural alignment, and the joy that is yoga!
Miriam brings together physical yoga asana practice with stimulating non-dogmatic philosophy to create a conscious experience of presence and living wisdom in the body and in the heart. Her classes are ever changing, infused with warmth and vitality, never losing site of the deeper side of practice that calls for open, non-judgmental observation.
Miriam cites: “I believe that yoga offers us an opportunity to rediscover our true selves, to rediscover the deep sense of calm and wellbeing that is always within; and that when we bring the energy of the heart and the mind into alignment, truly great things can happen!”
