GEORGIA - LOVE YOGA FOUNDER, DIRECTOR & TEACHER
Hi, I’m Georgia, lover of all things, especially Yoga!
Growing up, I loved the performing arts. Acting, dancing and performing on stage was where you would find me. This was where I felt most at home and in my own skin. Unsurprisingly, however, during my turbulent teenage years I abandoned all the things that had held meaning for me and severed connections with my self and the people who knew and loved me. I felt out of control and completely out of my body.
In the years to follow, as I settled and gained perspective, I realised that those tumultuous years during which I made mistakes and poor life choices were actually a necessary part of growing up. Those difficult life experiences helped to shape me and ultimately led me to yoga.
I feel humbled and eternally grateful to my family, friends, teachers and the people I connect with on a daily basis, who have offered me support and guidance on this journey towards self-discovery. Namaste.
“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”
- Joseph Campbell
Georgia has a background in dance and a passion for creative expression in the form of movement. Inspired by her sister’s yoga practice, she was initially self-taught before attending her first group class at Yoga Synergy in Sydney. While participating in regular classes she continued to develop her own independent practice and was encouraged by her teachers to apprentice under the guidance of Bianca Machliss and Simon Borg-Olivier.
Georgia completed her initial training with Yoga Synergy and continues to study, practice and teach Yoga with sincerity, light heartedness and a sprinkle of humour.

JAZMINE -LOVE YOGA TEACHER
Jaz is a regular wanderer, adventure chaser, lover of dance and Kirtan.
Jazmine found yoga during the turbulence of her teenage years, in which she was filled with depression and anxiety. Through her practice, she found her way back to herself, picking up the broken pieces. Immediately she knew that she wanted to help guide others home to themselves and help create a space for her students to honour who they are and where they are at in their life.
After years of dedicated practice, Jazmine journeyed to India where she trained in Hatha yoga at Tattvaa Yoga Shala. She has an ongoing thirst for expanding her knowledge and understanding of yoga and considers herself as primarily a student and is grateful for her teachers.
Jazmine’s warm, playful, funny and passionate nature is ever-present in her classes as she provides a fun and challenging environment. She draws inspiration from yogic philosophy, skillfully weaving in alignment, meditation and breath with creative sequencing. She encourages students to move beyond their perceived limitations, expect an invitation to delve inward and explore the layers of the self through connected movement.
