"The first time I practiced asana I felt something shift within me… a new sense of feeling and energy… it was like knowing myself and my potential completely"

Andrew is the owner and founder of the Balancing Elephant Yoga Studio and is passionate about sharing the transformative power Yoga has brought his life

“I used to be totally afraid of going to Yoga class... but, I kept going back, and then I became a Yoga teacher, and then opened a Yoga studio. Move into your fears, they have the power to transform you’re life”

Linh Brown

Linh's passion for yoga started as a physical activity and grew into a space for movement, meditation and a time for herself. 

Being on her mat felt like coming home and Linh hopes to create an inclusive class where everyone feels safe and welcome providing a space to connect, experience warmth, a challenge and relaxation. 

Linh completed her Yoga Teacher Training at InYoga and is taking on more learning with training in yin, anatomy and meditation. 

Off the mat, you will find Linh skateboarding and learning new tricks, spending time with her Bulldog Fergus and finding any excuse to have gelato! 


Tara Loizou

Tara began her yoga journey 10 years ago and since that first day stepping foot into a studio, she knew yoga was meant for her.  

With a background in movement as a contemporary dancer, Tara incorporates her passion for movement with the teachings of yoga to take students on a journey that is totally unique.

Each class is creative, offering students a chance to dive into a revitalising moving meditation

“As a yoga teacher my classes are not rigid, instead I encourage free flowing movement and expression to ignite that same passion I have within you too. For me, Yoga is not just a physical practice, it’s an empowering journey unique to each of us that gives space for stillness and tends the fire of your inner health”


Maggie Chung

Beginning her yoga journey in 2005, Maggie fell in love with the physical challenges and deeper exploration of Yoga.

Maggies journey has taken her to train with Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss of Yoga Synergy and Ananda Kennard of Preshana Yoga.

In 2010, she coupled her Yoga knowledge with a Diploma of Sports Kinesiology with the College of Contemporary Medicine and also founded Winston Hills Yoga which later became into Soul Tree Yoga studio in Northmead.

Her practise and teaching have been influenced by injury, motherhood and the general ups and downs of life. Her love and passion of human body movement, natural therapies, psychology and biomechanics shines in her teaching where she focuses on alignment with flow, breath and finding that bliss point in poses.
