2019: What a year!

2019: What a year!

Posted by amberp, 22-Apr-2020

Here’s our round-up of 2019 state-by-state:


It’s been an action-packed year with four successful events: a teachers’ catch up in February, an interesting and informative morning with Reiki practitioner
Kelly Ayoub on the Authentic Self in May, The IYTA Seniors Yoga Course presented by Beryl Broadbent at the end of June and a workshop on myofascial aspects of yoga with Kellie Brett and Justin Kiely in August.

Our rep Pam is already planning 2020 – so make sure you check out our Jan enews for dates and details!

ACT and Surrounding Regions 

During the first half of the year, Glynis Whitfield ran a one-day workshop looking at An Exploration of the Yoga Energy System.

The second half of the year saw three mini events with the introduction of Sunday Sangha’s. Designed to be simple, free 2-3 hour local opportunities for
fellow teachers to gather, learn from each other, sing and celebrate all things Yoga.

The ACT committee was and is committed to creating regular opportunities for our local members to come along, tapping into some excellent talks by fellow experienced teachers, catching up with old friends and making new ones, and supporting our teaching community. The generosity of teachers was evident in the way people attended, volunteered their studio, time and knowledge on a vast range of topics.


Our ever-popular AGM and Annual Retreat was held in the beautiful grounds of the Brahma Kumaris in Wilton, NSW. And Karen Nicoll ran a fabulous workshop on yoga for Hips and Shoulders. There were also numerous post-graduate trainings on Yin, Meditation and Pranayama and Seniors Yoga.


Mary-Louise Parkinson ran a soothing session titled: Nourish your Body, Mind and Spirit. There were also fun Sanghas held throughout the year and the Qld
members flew the flag for the IYTA at the Sunshine Coast’s Yoga Fest event.

In 2020 there are already plans for Sanghas in March – including one Sangha on the Sunshine Coast. Plus, there’s a Somatic Yoga workshop in July with Katrina Hinton.


Beryl Broadbent ran her popular Senior Yoga course at the end of the year.

And there are plans for more workshops next year.

As we move into 2020 we’ll be unveiling an exciting timetable of trainings, workshops and events.
