Teaching and Assisting Asana, Vinyasa, Hatha and Teaching Techniques

Marie discovered yoga around 12 years ago when the urge to explore the deeper questions of life and spirit overwhelmed all else. Japa meditation and Mantra introduced the power of breath and of one pointed focus along with a new found joy and clarity. And so the passion to dedicate time to further exploration of yoga insured.

Marie began teaching 8 years ago and over the years has taught in Australia, India, Hong Kong, Bhutan, Japan, Bali and the Caribbean.

Marie completed 2 Yoga Arts’ Trainings, a 2 month Level 1 (200 hours Yoga Alliance) Yoga Teacher Training, in 2003, and she went on to complete the Yoga Arts’ Certificate IV in Yoga Teacher Training in 2004.Marie has been teaching and assisting, for Yoga Arts, since 2006, in; India, Bali, Japan, Malaysia, India and China.

Her teaching style is Vinyasa Hatha with attention to mindful breath and movement through the holding and transitioning from pose to pose. Marie remains grateful and dedicated to the path as it provides a way to be open to the unfolding chapters of life; the opportunities to be present to life, and loved ones, growing towards ultimate peace.

Edo Kahn & Jo Mall (Asana Assistant):
Kirtan, Bhakti Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Sacred Sound Yoga {Nada Yoga Nidra}, Chanting & Voice Expression

Edo and Jo Yogarts Yoga Teaching and Yoga Holiday Retreats

Edo Kahn & Jo Mall are renowned Australian kirtan artists and singer-songwriters. They have been part of the Yoga Arts family, facilitating the Bhakti yoga component on several teacher trainings (India, Bali) and retreats (Bali). Their music for yoga and meditation creates a magical journey of Eastern mystical mantras expressed in soothing and joyous folk-pop melodies. The marriage of lush vocal harmonies, rapturous rhythms and sweet devotion is like honey droplets for the soul. Their sweet synergy and Bhakti (devotion) facilitates the space for the ancient yogic practice of kirtan, yoga nidra (blissful sound meditations) and sacred sound workshops to be an organic and spontaneous process for emotional release, divine love and inner-transformation.

Edo & Jo are gifted songwriters individually and collectively. Edo is an award wining songwriter (APRA song of the year) and has had songs in films, TV and on radio (with his bands Kahn Brothers & Gelbison). Combined with Jo’s angelic voice, the duo’s voices are a gentle and powerful invitation into the depths of the heart. Jo is also an accomplished yoga practitioner and teacher (trained with Yoga Arts). Dedicating their lives to conscious living, Bhakti yoga (the yogic path of the heart) and seva (humanitarian works), their life and songs reflect their journey inwards to the infinite depths of the heart and divine union.

From yoga schools, retreats, festivals, yoga teacher trainings to temples, hospitals and orphanages across Australia, Bali, Asia & India, the divine duo lead kirtan & sacred sound yoga.
