What inspired Nauti Yoga?
Nauti Studios is a beautiful example of creative people living as their higher selves, flowing with integrity in their work/life balance. The vision is to cultivate momentum towards these higher versions by incorporating body work into the space, meanwhile developing community between our ‘Sailors’ and all who come to join us.
What are you seeing?
The opportunity to come together and practice yoga in the Nauti’s Sun Room literally raises the vibration of the space. This results in higher levels of focus, more collaboration, and a stronger sense of community and investment in our collective health & wealth.

There are different types of Yoga, what do you teach here?
It’s a combination of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin Yoga, and meditation. I’ve trained in Queensland and in Bali since beginning on my path with yoga in 2013. I look forward to increasing the class schedule throughout this year to offer more time slots and variations of practice.
When is Nauti Yoga on?
We have a Women’s Vinyasa on Tuesday’s at 5:45pm-7pm and an Open Vinyasa on Friday’s 12pm-1pm.
Classes are $10 each for your first month and are open to everyone.
Why is the Tuesday night womens class so important?
It is important for women to come together and move into their bodies because it is a place of sisterhood, comfort and joy. In these spaces we find refuge from the abhorrent attack of commercialism on the female form, and instead we embrace each others unique gifts, shapes, and softness. These classes are about grounding into confidence, strength, fluidity, and enjoying our beauty.
I also run Young Women’s Yoga workshops in the space for female identifying people aged 8-16 which are a massive success, giving me great joy and peace for the coming generation of women and their interpretations of self.
How do you design each Nauti Yoga class?
I firmly believe that teaching starts with maintaining a strong connection with personal practice. I am a student as much as I am a teacher, and I love to play and learn. My daily yoga practice is a philosophy of my life, it helps me connect to source and what it is that universal intelligence has for the group to experience.
The sequences that result are mostly about getting away from the desk and into the body, opening hips and hearts, stimulating blood flow and removing blockages, providing a nurturing space, and cultivating creativity.
