Ilse Broekaert Brisbane, Manly (Lota)
I am originally from Belgium, where yoga is still taught in the traditional vein, with the asana practice as one step in the 8-fold yoga path, so I practiced for 30 years with truly mindful and compassionate teachers. It took up teaching yoga in 2010, after studying in Australia, India, Belgium and The Netherlands. Through the last years I realised that my own yoga practice was always yin, to counterbalance my yang nature (or pitta constitution). I then trained with Jo Phee (who acknowledges her lineage with Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers) and I now teach yin yoga, alongside hatha yoga classes, in Brisbane’s bayside area.
