About the Tutor

Bernie has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and gained a Diploma in Yoga Teaching at the Yoga Institute of Australia in Cammeray. Her training encompassed all facets of Yoga according to the traditional Yoga teachings of India and emphasis was placed on teaching Yoga based on the needs of the individual and the situation. Since then she has been teaching a wide range of classes and is passionate about the benefits of yoga for everyone and believes if one can breathe one can do yoga! Bernie’s Yoga classes include postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), meditation and sound. She teaches classes in a style that is accessible to all and can also design individual personal practices.

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Course testimonials:

  • Zoom yoga was a new experience but Bernie made it very manageable and I felt very lucky that I could continue to do yoga under her guidance despite the Covid restrictions
  • Wonderful teacher, great group, excellent exercise for the body and mind.
  • Great instructor...lovely women...good coffee afterwards.
  • Very happy with our teacher and the course. Club Parkng is very useful. Overall very happy
  • I really enjoyed the Yoga over 50's course with Bernadette who is by far the most experienced Yoga teacher I've ever had. As an added bonus a chronic shoulder problem improved significantly within a few weeks of starting this course.
  • Now that I am semi-retired I have the time to enjoy the 1.5 hour class with Bernie. I have for many years used the gym to keep fit but now realise that effort must be accompanied with yoga classes in order to maximise mobility, flexibility and strength. Currently this is my fourth term in Bernie's class and I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their health and wellbeing.
  • Our teacher Bernie is excellent as is evident with class numbers growing.
  • Bernadette is an excellent teacher and I have benefitted greatly from her yoga classes.
  • Bernie is a wonderful teacher and such a pleasant person
  • I enjoy everything about this class. Bernie is an excellent yoga instructor and her class is perfect for the not so young. I also enjoy the coffee afterwards with my lovely yoga friends.
