“Gareth is the type of trainer who will push you to achieving results fast. He stands out from many trainers in the way he combines his academic background to the science of sports and Kitness. Using up to date evidence based practice as well as being a passionate and active participant in the weight lifting sport himself. He will dedicate a lot of time and hard work in structuring a program speciKic to you, but in return he expects hard work so I have learnt from the very beginning that I either show up to train hard each and every session or I don't bother showing up. I recommend Gareth to people who are willing to work hard for results, want improved motivation, conKidence and want to learn how to maintain a balanced lifestyle.

Elesia Yoga ProfileK

Elesia Iimura

Yoga Instructor

Yoga and meditation have always been a part of my life. You could say I was born into Yoga as my mother is a Yoga teacher. At an early age I began attending her Yoga classes, sometimes demonstrating postures to her students. I also enjoyed the dharma group she lead for Kids at the Chenrezig Buddhist Institute on the Sunshine Coast where I learnt meditation techniques. I was very fortunate to have been instructed on the fundamental philosophy of Yoga from which all contemporary Yoga stems. As a child we travelled to India, (the birthplace of Yoga), as part of my childhood education.

This early training inspired me to follow in her footsteps and in 2007 I completed my yoga teacher training at "My Health Yoga" under the guidance and supervision of Carrie Anne Fields who I regard as an enlightened teacher in this field. To further enhance my practice I am also training in Capoiera, a Brazilian Martial Art.

My Vinyasa Flow style is lead from a natural and intuitive space that responds to the needs of the individual. Each class incorporates the essential components of Hatha Yoga - the postures, and Pranayama - the breath, using a Vinyasa (flow) sequence focusing on coordination of breath and movement.

As well as developing strength and stamina, each class takes you to a level of stillness where you can experience clarity of mind and your true inner nature. Over time, practising yoga is a transformational process involving every aspect of your being. It gives you a deeper awareness that transfers into your daily life awakening you to the unlimited potential within.

Ultimately, the style of yoga I offer can give you, not only physical fitness and core strength, but also the ability to handle stress and access inner strength and peace.
