It offers a balanced practice that combines the physical benefits of yoga with the calming effects of meditation.

The use of props for enhanced support and comfort

In our Slow Flow classes, we frequently utilize props to aid in the practice. The use of props like yoga blocks, bolsters, and straps helps in maintaining poses for longer periods comfortably. This approach allows for deeper stretching and relaxation, making it easier to hold poses for extended breaths.

Longer holds for deeper stretching and awareness

Slow Flow yoga at D-F Studio is characterized by poses that are held for a little longer than in traditional yoga classes. These extended holds offer the opportunity to deepen your stretching and increase body awareness. Holding poses for longer also encourages a deeper connection with your breath, enhancing the meditative aspect of the practice.

Eliza Hayward

Eliza’s journey of self-discovery and personal growth began as a curious teenage student where accessing yoga and meditation was part of her ritual.

Her classes are deeply rooted in accessing the physical and energetic systems of the body to awaken the intelligence within.  For Eliza following the yogic path is a joyous journey which has brightened her desire to create her own studio.

Eliza finds that yoga is a wonderful vehicle to gather community and share expression and celebrate this life changing practice with those who also seek and are curious about enhancing their lives. 

 Eliza is an influential yoga and meditation teacher, empowerment coach and retreat host. She is renowned for her passion and joy while honouring the practices of yoga which overflows into the community.

Tash Talevski

Tash comes from an experienced background in Personal Training, with a depth of anatomical knowledge. Submerged in the world of health and fitness from a young age, she quickly developed a love and fascination of the human vessel.

Movement through space, with awareness on breath, became profound and necessary tools in her journey toward self-exploration and transformation. In her quest to deepen this inner exploration, Tash eventually found herself living in Mexico at the Hridaya Yoga Centre. Here, immersed in a yogic lifestyle and the traditional Hatha teachings, was the start of her ongoing yoga journey. She has since completed multiple trainings, taught in retreats overseas and continues to inquire with awe into the nature of the human organism.

Tash believes much of our “knowing” has been limited to the brain alone, where many aspects of ourselves cannot be truly met. She draws from her coaching background, in-depth anatomical knowledge and diverse movement education, to guide her students through an integrated practice of conscious anatomical and energetic explorations in order to deepen the Mind-Body experience.

She views each movement practice as a portal for conscious connection with our self and the world around us, and aims to inspire in her students a curiosity of the self – to feel, taste and honour each breath, and subtle bodily sensation as a gateway into revelation.

Julia Goeller

Julia’s Yoga journey began 10 years ago, and since then she has passionately studied the depths of Yoga philosophy and practice. She is trained in various styles including Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin, and with her background in Ayurveda she brings a diverse range of influences to her teaching, creating classes that are educative, purposeful, nourishing, and deeply grounding. 

Her approach reaches far beyond the Asanas and honours the very traditional essence of Yoga, emphasizing the importance of cultivating awareness of the mind, body, and emotions, as well as encouraging kindness and self-compassion on and off the mat. In Julia’s classes you can expect a harmonious blend of breathwork, meditation, and mindful movement, designed to create a sense of connection with yourself. 

Julia firmly believes that true well-being and lasting happiness stem from a profound understanding of ones individuality and is committed to helping you navigate your practice according to your own needs.

Her mission is to create a safe space where you can connect with your body and mind to help you understand yourself better and learn what works for you (and only you!) and what doesn’t. 

Whether you are a seasoned yogi or stepping onto the mat for the first time, Julia is excited to meet you exactly where you are in your unique journey!

Her offering on the mat is to guide human beings to embody the language of the body and the wisdom that each one of us carry within our hearts by weaving together the ancient practice of Yoga and her devotion and connection with the teachings from nature and native wisdom.
Her teachings invite the opportunities to evolve together in community, transcending duality and remembering how to walk with respect, integrity, purpose, clarity and kindness on the Earth.

In co creation with the earth Petra holds breathwork, cacao ceremonies and women’s rituals. She is a doula in training and passionate about supporting women in reclaiming their essence through feminine embodiment, conscious movement and ceremonies.
