About our Yoga Teachers
We currently have 2 Yoga teachers who regularly give classes at Yoga Kala in Murwillumbah. We also frequently have visiting expert Yoga teachers who run weekend Yoga workshops at Yoga Kala.
Julie Dixon is the principal yoga teacher and founder of the Yoga Kala studio. Her interest in Yoga began in the late 70’s whilst living in Yallingup W.A. Her first teacher, Zoya Nott was a dedicated Yogini who travelled yearly to Pune to learn from her Guru, BKS Iyengar. Upon returning to the east coast Julie immersed herself in Yoga classes. Julie has undertaken & completed many years of combined teacher training & professional development in the early 1980’s, 2000’s and is currently training under Caroline Coggins, Senior Iyengar Teacher trainer.
Julie has explored, practiced and experienced Yoga for more than 3 decades. Through the training and her own self exploration of this vast subject, her inquiry led her to teach. Her ongoing dedication to personal practice, combined with study of classical texts of Yoga, and ongoing learning from her teacher, Caroline Coggins, allow Julie the vehicle to live her passion.
Her classes are infused with her many years of experience and offer instruction in the subject which is imparted with enthusiasm and freshness and informed by her ongoing journey on the path. Julie has worked with Senior Australian and international Iyengar teachers and continues her professional development in this way. Julie wishes to express her gratitude to all her teachers, in particular her students.
Nicola has travelled extensively throughout India with Yoga teacher training and is passionate about teaching yoga. Her experience informs her teaching and brings awareness to the union of mind, body and breath. This awareness helps student’s to transfer this practice off their mats, and integrate this understanding in life. Highlighting that yoga is a tool that will help to connect more deeply, and bring clarity, to daily life.
Nicola teaches asana and mindfulness to assist in quietening the mind and calming the soul. Throughout her classes, Nicola gently guides students to discover for themselves, the many wonderful insights and understandings that she has experienced in her own Yoga practice and teacher training. Nicola’s is our relief teacher at Yoga Kala and her classes are imbibed with her passion for teaching Yoga.
Our Yoga classes and workshops are conducted at our Yoga centre in Tweed House, suite 3/ 34 Main St., Murwillumbah.
