Riss is a passionate E-RYT-500 who has been teaching for 9 years. Riss's story is one of her yoga practice insisting that she begin to live a life driven by the wisdom of hrdaya (the heart). This meant leaving a corporate career to pursue her yoga dream, travel and offer retreats within Australia and overseas and set up a studio.
She has studied a range of yoga traditions and styles in a range of countries and finds herself at home in alignment infused vinyasa yoga. She has been teaching yoga full-time for the past 4 years at a range of Brisbane studios and has travelled to USA to study with Sianna Sherman.
Riss is a certified children's yoga teacher, pregnancy and Active Birth and yoga therapy teacher. As Riss was expecting her first child, she created an online yoga pregnancy program to guide blooming mamas to awaken their sense of abundance in pregnancy and feel prepared in body and spirit to welcome their child. She has experience working alongside individuals with specific yoga needs as well as elite sporting teams.
Her background in therapeutics and healing modalities infuse the transformational experiences of her classes and many of her dedicated students are now also yoga teachers. Riss is utterly convinced that living your yoga bliss is the most radical way to evolve yourself and be of service to others.
