    Nic Dorsch

    Yoga has been in my life for 30 years, 20 years as a Yogalates Teacher, for the last 8 years a Yogalates Master Teacher Trainer.   

    At 19yrs old I began my journey of Yoga initially to deal with postural conditions, injuries and ailments, however this was really a facade for the yearning and curiosity I had for spirituality.  At age 30yrs I landed in my teaching foundations in Byron Bay with Louise Solomon and her Yogalates Method, whom I am honoured to support as I continue to love her teachings as her assistant in teacher trainings worldwide.  

    The Yogalates teacher training is a complete 350hr training with in-depth studies in Yoga Philosophy, breath work (Pranayama), Adaptive Therapeutic Yoga, core + functional movement.  In 2004 we lived and breathed it (literally) for 6 months full time, which I am sure embedded the practice into my every cell.  I knew this is what I wanted to do, I had found my Dharma - to share with as many people as possible the gifts Yoga has blessed me with.  

    I am passionate about sharing breath work, meditation, movement and alignment of the body in postures (Asana) so any BODY can experience the strength (Stirrha) and peace (Sukkha) this practice offers.
