About me

Esther has been practising yoga for 30 years and teaching it for more than a decade, specialising in Satyananda and Hatha yoga. Esther believes Satyananda yoga, in particular, helps to handle life’s challenges.

Esther was seven years old when she first felt the calling to become a yoga teacher – she didn’t know what it was called then but she knew deep down it was what she wanted to do. Yoga has since become Esther’s whole life.

With students ranging in ages from seven to 95, Esther loves ... finding authentic, tailored practices to help clients manage their individual mental, emotional and physical health concerns.

Esther offers techniques to manage long and short-term fatigue, anxiety, stress, cancer recovery and auto-immune conditions.

Her yoga classes are small with a maximum of eight and a strong focus on each individual. She ensures she is attentive towards each person and provides modifications so each movement is accessible for everybody.

Esther enjoys giving people a whole new perspective on living so they can learn how to better balance and manage their lives. She loves taking people through this journey, giving them tailored tools like breathing or chanting, and watching things click into place for them.

Having recently finished a certificate in Ayurveda as a lifestyle coach, Esther incorporates this into her yoga therapy, doing things like tongue analysis, colours and oils to bring people into balance.

Find Your Balance - Private Yoga Therapy Session

Using the ancient tools of Yoga and ayurvedic techniques, Esther helps the client find balance and incorporate life skills into their day so ... they grasp the reins of their life rather than being pulled out of balance by life’s events, relationships and experiences.

Esther uses a wide range of postures, breathing and meditative techniques for anxiety, stress, etc and relaxation to help let go and nourish. She uses various techniques to give clients insights as to what is out of balance and empower them by showing them how they can use yoga alone or alongside their regular healthcare plan to achieve improved wellbeing. Esther offers some specific practices to help target pain whether it is physical discomfort, busy mind, negative habits etc.

A private session is a way of nourishing and restoring and letting go of tensions. Yoga therapy sessions are 90mins long and include take-home plan and recordings. The plan is short and manageable and tailored to the client with pictures and instructions.

Clients often come during or after having treatment or with auto-immune conditions to empower and help them manage. Others come to learn tools for stress, anxiety etc or simply to find practices to help with a range of aches and pains.

Esther offers individual and group classes.

Group Yoga Classes - 10 class pass

Esther teaches Satyananda yoga (a classic breath centred, meditative style) through Yoga in Hornsby.

A class typically has a 10 minute relaxation/meditative ... practice, followed by about 45/50 minutes of asanas (postures). You will be shown some breathing techniques (pranayama) which are also used throughout the practice, finishing with a deep meditative relaxation (yoga nidra) with some deeper meditative practices such as Trataka (candle gazing), mantra repetition, the early stages of Antar Mouna (inner silence) and deeper stages of Kaya Stherium (stillness & steadiness) being offered in the progressive beginner classes. The class will be focussed on releasing mental, emotional, physical tensions as well as gradually and safely developing balance, strength and flexibility of the entire body, mind and spirit.
