Power Yoga Canberra was born out of the desire to teach yoga to a broad community of likeminded people. From humble beginnings in Hall, Justine Lisson and Marcus Janssen opened the small studio equalife -Canberra’s first power yoga studio. It was here that our current community started to grow.
Justine, Marcus, Roz, Shirley, Caz and Diana all taught from the tiny space that held 17 people max.
The community started to thrive, and the space became a well loved haunt for many yogi’s that are still with us today…The move to Belconnen shifted our postcode, and bought with it a name change – we emerged as Power Living Canberra – part of the Power Living group that Duncan Peak founded in Sydney.
Within the first year of business our studio saw many complete beginners and more experienced yogi’s embrace Power Yoga. The first Power Yoga 200hr Teacher Training course was run by us in 2011, opening up the doors for some amazing new teachers to join our crew. We hosted many well known Australian yogi’s through our doors, as well as international guest teacher Kathryn Budig.
Roz Penfold – Specialist Sports Physio and yoga teacher developed ‘Align your Body’ our popular foundational asana workshop which we facilitate regularly. Our involvement with the Yoga Aid Challenge is something we are always keen to talk about – being involved from the very beginning, our community has been amongst the Top 10 fundraisers in the country.
We now emerge as Power Yoga Canberra!
Power: Strong body + clear mindful presence
Yoga: Union with this power
Canberra: Our community now, our community to be…..
