Marta Simoncini (English)
Originally from Milan, Marta discovered yoga during her 4 year-long experience in Sydney.
However, it was only in 2019, a period of great change following her moving back to Italy, that her personal practice became a central part of her routine, thanks to that balancing and grounding power that yoga naturally has. From here, the inevitable development for her was undergoing the process of becoming a teacher.
To Marta is indeed balance one of the core aspects of yoga: that ability to balance our body and our full system in-between an active and a calmer kind of energy.
Former athlete, Marta’s practice and flows are energising, but in a balanced way, which makes her classes suitable and enjoyable for both first timers and more experience students.

Tina Bozic (English only)
Drawing from different traditions, Tina focuses on developing functional strength and flexibility while encouraging students to use their body/breath awareness to stay connected to the present moment.
Ana Dias (English & Portuguese)
Ana has always been passionate for movement since she can remember and yoga had that perfect mix of discipline and freedom to move at our own pace.
Originally from Porto, she moved to London to further her training in contemporary dance and it was through a dance injury that yoga came into Ana’s life. It ended up being not only a key component to her physical rehabilitation but also brought so much needed mental balance to a life of constant change and challenges.
Ana’s classes focus on the conscious use of the breath to inform movement. Her aim is to help students build their body awareness, through intelligent alignment that considers different body structures and not one size fits all. Offering a welcoming, non dogmatic and light hearted teaching approach to vinyasa flow, Ana facilitates a safe space where you can try new things and be playful.
