Meet our Teacher, Holly Norman-
Growing up on the doorstep of some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, Holly Norman has always had a passion for active living and fresh air. A musician by trade, Holly began her yoga journey seven years ago in her home town of Perth, Western Australia. Her interest in body awareness and movement began with pilates, stemming from a performance-related injury in her late teens. Yoga was a natural progression, and with the help of some wonderful mentors in Perth, she was soon hooked. As Holly moved into the busy world of event management and festival work, the emphasis on mindfulness and patience provided by yoga was a welcome tonic to daily life.
Holly completed her RYT-200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa teaching qualification with All Yoga in 2016, and her learning journey has continued with further training under Kino McGregor (USA), Joe Barnett (50 hr Yin Yoga qualification - Yin New Zealand), and Om People Yoga (VIC). She is passionate about promoting positive mental health, active living and helping others achieve their potential. Holly holds a firm belief that yoga is for everybody, and that the only kind of flexibility required is mental flexibility! Her goal is to create yoga classes that will challenge, inspire, and cultivate self-confidence in a safe space.
Now based in Melbourne, Holly is an arts manager/festival worker by day, with an extensive list of side hustles ranging from yoga copywriting, offsite content management and music performance. Outside of the office, Holly can be found exploring Melbourne's live music scene, soaking up awesome gigs, playing in bands and laying down a yoga mat at almost any beautiful park or beach.
