Name: Talara Calavassy
Living polarising worlds as an emergency service worker meet yogini, Talara believes that the spiritual worlds of the ancient yogic traditions can be so relevant in our modern, practical ways of living. With a passion for philosophy, she enjoys threading these concepts through her creative and challenging sequences whilst also making it relatable for all walks of life.
Completing her 200hr YTT in Vinyasa and Hatha, Talara has furthered her studies with Yin, Sequencing Courses and Women’s Health & Hormones courses. Having already achieved her Cert IV in Fitness and continuing to become certified in Mat Pilates, she loves the subtleties in alignment to safely prepare the body for deeper, more advanced asana. An eager learner, she is always looking for more ways to grow her knowledge and skills in order to intentionally offer more to her classes.
Facilitating yoga and pilates brings deep purpose, and she has leant into this more as a passion project more than a career in hopes of being a conduit in sharing this transformational practice with her community. Combining pranayama (breath), asana (the physical practice), and meditation she believes is the key recipe to harmonise the mind, body and spirit.
Talara’s goal as a teacher is to show up authentically, hold space and create a safe container for people to move freely without taking themselves too seriously. To honour the philosophy and wisdom behind yoga and ensure it is accessible and inclusive for everyone, and most importantly safely guide her students through a nourishing movement practice that allows them to transcend a busy mind and come back to themselves in this frantic, modern world. Talara believes that in order to be a good facilitator of yoga, you must also be consistent and dedicated with your own practice. You will often find her practising in the walls of Power Living Manly or else chatting away at the Power Living reception – after all, community and connection are important for living a happy and fulfilling life!
