Instructors

Kristy

Kristy’s practise has spanned decades, hemispheres, and different roles as an actress, presenter, coach, and yoga teacher. 
 
Having first been introduced to yoga as a therapy to move through grief, the asana was a portal into Kristy’s exploration of mindfulness. Working with an array of esteemed international teachers, Kristy’s own practise, and teaching deepen as she consistently focuses on learning and growth.  Kristy’s passion for powerful Vinyasa with intelligent sequencing and peak poses is balanced by her soulful slow flows and harmonising Yin classes.  
 
An instinct for the playful and pondering of the philosophical, you can expect some light, at times laughter and always introspection, while increasing your breath awareness and mind-body connection.  
 
Kristy teaches Power Flow, Yin, Soul Flow and Rhythm Ride at Luxe Yoga and Fitness.

When we go to yoga or a breathwork workshop we are making a conscious choice to nourish our bodies and souls through practice.” Says Lailla.

Tracey

Yoga has changed Tracey’s life over the past 16 years, and she loves sharing her experience and passion in an authentic and fun way through movement and breathing.

Her strong classes are an opportunity to dive deeper, to look at yourself, your habits and tendencies and how you hold yourself back. Tracey asks her students to step out of their comfort zone and show up for themselves as it is when we are challenged that we can truly rise to be a better version of ourselves.
