All teachers at Flourish Yoga have completed 200 or more hours of yoga teacher training recognised by Yoga Australia or Yoga Alliance. Many of us also have tertiary qualifications in health fields and work as health professionals, bringing additional insight to our teaching and practice.
Emily McLoughlin has trained as a yoga instructor with Yoga Trinity and is also a practising Physiotherapist. Emily likes to take time in her teaching to help people develop an awareness of their body through understanding each yoga pose. Emily values community, kindness and understanding and seeks to share these values through yoga.
Emily currently teaches a moderate paced vinyasa class on Monday nights and can be found practising hand stands somewhere most other nights of the week.

In 2011, Angela completed a 300 hour Sivananda teacher training program with the Swami Vishnu Yoga Centre in Ontario, Canada and in 2012 completed a vinyasa flow immersion teacher training with Yoga Trinity.
During her Sivananda training, Angela was surprised to learn that the physical practice of yoga is only a tiny portion of yoga. Angela has made a commitment to work on weaving yoga principles and philosophy into her life and not only practice yoga regularly, but work toward living life in accordance with this philosophy and share my knowledge with others. The change in direction has been intense and the beginning of a life long journey of growth.
Angela has recently enrolled to study Thai Yoga massage and will complete the training by the end of 2013.
Bernie has a love of everything outdoors and can often be seen running in Canberra’s nature parks on weekends. She brings joy and playfulness to her teaching, encouraging students to listen to and explore their own bodies and to lose themselves in the moment.
Bernie has a degree in medical science and a masters degree in public health. 2013 is going to be an exciting year with the birth of her first child. Bernie hopes to be back teaching regularly from May 2013.
