Yoga Testimonials

I stumbled across Liv at a busy and stressful time in my life. We embarked on some one-on-one tuition in yoga & progressive relaxation.  This turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself. Liv’s intuition,  gentleness, good humour and intelligence made our sessions together a real joy, which re-freshed my spirit. Liv has set me up with my own yoga routine and personalised stress-relief ‘tool-kit’. I look forward to joining in on her group yoga & progressive relaxation classes to continue my journey.

Liv, thank you so very much for the yoga practice. Although it was only for a brief period, it was a wonderful and profound personal experience.   Your class was, for me, a synthesis of all past yoga practice.  I fully connected with your teaching style. I was able to use my breath to move my body in a way that I had heard was possible, and hoped would happen to me, but which had eluded me in 2 years of weekly yoga classes. It came unexpectedly and naturally once I let my body flow with my breath, rather than just cranking and forcing my body into the required yoga pose. Connecting with this fluidity was enlightening.
Mary Kane, Continence Foundation of Australia

I love yoga and have attended a number of different classes. Some I found beneficial, others less so. Liv’s classes really worked for me; they have a strong focus on listening to and connecting with your body. Every posture is thoroughly explained and talked through. It’s a mindful yoga! I have always left the class feeling centred and healthy.
Maria, project management contractor, Yoga at Alma Park

Thank you Liv. I really enjoyed it [your class]. I felt the pace was lovely and gave me the opportunity for reflective practice and being aware of my body. This is something I’ve been really enjoying and needing lately. Thank you for such a lovely lesson and your gentle presence. It was so relaxing. I couldn’t believe it was over so quickly. I wanted more.
Emily Wassink, Alma Road Community Centre


As a gent who lives and works a fairly sedentary existence I’ve often thought that Yoga might be an interesting way to mitigate against the pitfalls of an aging frame. I was also intrigued to see the value that AFL players spoke of getting out of yoga. I was rapt to get a spot in one of Liv’s classes and haven’t looked back since. The combination of relaxation and stretching has meant I can tap into energy I didn’t think I had. Liv’s style is brilliant and her teaching accommodates different levels of aptitude. Highly recommended!!

Liv’s yoga classes are always welcoming and fun to attend. She creates a variety of stimulating activities and takes care to tailor them to individual needs if required. She makes us all feel part of a special community. Thanks again for a lovely summer of Yoga in the Park.

Liv, Malvern Central School can’t thank you enough for the time you have spent working with our Year 6’s.  The students were completely engaged throughout the whole program. The program was delivered around adolescent issues and enjoyed by all.

You were very professional in your practice and were able to manage all ability levels in the year group.  Your class management was superb and appropriate to the age group.  You were very professional, providing a letter to the parents explaining what students would be learning in your classes. Our parent community appreciated the information provided.  We are very much looking forward to working with you in the future at Malvern Central School.
Simone Hesse, PE coordinator, Malvern Central Primary School

We enjoyed the opportunity of having you teach us. I look forward to each class . . . I have even incorporated your bends and side turns into my brief morning yoga routine, so thanks for that. You are a great teacher.
