Being Yoga - About Us

Being Yoga has gradually evolved since 1997 from Vanessa Rudge teaching a range of classes in Coolum Beach, Sunshine Coast. After establishing a strong following of committed yoga students, Vanessa met fellow yoga teacher Michael Daly in 2003. Since this time the pair has worked hard to develop a dynamic school for yoga, meditation, teacher training and education.  In 2010 they opened their first studio in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast followed by another studio in Brisbane at Ascot / Hamilton in 2014.

More than simply being a location for physical exercise, Being Yoga has become known as the place to find, practice and participate in the total yoga experience.

Launching their highly transformational Yoga Teacher Training program in 2007, Being Yoga has quickly established itself as a high quality centre for vocational training and education. Numerous graduates are now successfully forging new careers across the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, North Queensland and areas of  Victoria New South Wales and internationally.

The school has also become well known for its sacred, fun and rejuvenating retreats, both in Australia and overseas.

The Being Yoga vision is to warmly accept all people exactly as they are, while gently encouraging them to reach toward their highest and best. We endeavour to meet the needs of a broad range of people, whether these be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.

There could be no other practice on this planet today that is as broad ranging in its scope as yoga. Whether it be to find relief in sore and tight muscles, to dissolve stress, calm the mind or open you towards the dizzy heights of spiritual enlightenment, yoga is a science that accommodates everyone. We often say that people come to yoga for their body and then stay for everything else!

We truly believe this is the ultimate practice for tomorrow’s world. We look forward to seeing you in class with us soon…

Namaste.
