Bernadette discovered the practice of yoga through her full time dance studies in 2008, which incorporated daily morning yoga. Following this training she undertook undergraduate studies in Psychology and Philosophy at Monash University, becoming further intrigued by the mind, human relations and the practice of mindfulness.

Bernadette’s love of yoga continued over the following years, maintaining her self practice until commiting to taking the next step and first teacher training with The Yoga Social. Her journey has continued through subsequent trainings with The Australian College of Classical Yoga and Creative Kids Yoga with Edna Reinhart.

Bernadette is passionate about sharing her yoga practice and experience, through asana classes for all bodies and incorporating pranayama (breath focus) and mindful relaxation.
