Ari (Ariella) Markman

Ari (Ariella) Markman

Owner, The Yoga Space Melbourne

Ari loves, lives and breathes yoga. From her first class as a law student trying to get her life together, she became deeply and richly immersed in the practice, teachings and philosophy of yoga.

A successful 20 year career in human rights and discrimination law, conflict resolution and workplace training led one day to an epiphany. It was all the clichés: the lightning bolt from the heavens, the path ahead laid clear, the revelation. An awakening of the spirit. It was yoga that made her feel most alive. All the teachings over the years, her love of this beautiful practice—it started to make sense. She knew she was meant to free her inner teacher and share her love of yoga.

The leap from lawyer, to full-time yoga teacher, to studio owner is an embodiment of all these yogic teachings—the heart, the spirit, the commitment. Ari has been teaching yoga for many years and in that time has completed many incredible teacher trainings, has lectured hundreds of yoga teacher trainees and has run many workshops and retreats.

For Ari, yoga is a holistic frame that guides her through life. It supports the way she parents, the way she partners and the way she lives.

Ari’s classes bring together breath, philosophy, laughter and connection. She teaches with an authenticity and wisdom that will deepen your practice and your connection to you. Whether quoting the Yoga Sutras or Radiohead, she manages to give her students exactly what they need, exactly when they need it most.

Please join Ari and the wonderful team at The Yoga Space Melbourne to practice, breathe and grow together.

Tina Tainui

Tina Tainui

Teacher, The Yoga Space Melbourne

Tina first discovered yoga in her 20s and for many years flirted on and off with her asana practice. It was only a few years back that she found herself at Union Yoga (now Yoke South Melbourne!) where she developed a strong, consistent practice practice. It was here that she realized her desire to share her love of yoga and way that it has transformed her life that drove her to do her Teacher Training in 2014.

Since completed her 200hr Teacher Training with Power Living in 2014, she has continued to expand her knowledge through training with some of her most inspiring teachers; Duncan Peak (Yin Yoga 50 hrs) and the team at Laughing Lotus New York (Bhakti and Chakra Training in India and Fly Inversion Training 150hrs).

Heidi Trigar

Heidi Trigar

Teacher, The Yoga Space Melbourne

Always one to follow her passions, Heidi’s career as a dancer and her love of movement led her to Yoga. Although the practice of asana was the initial pull, the philosophy behind the shapes kept her coming back to the practice, and her love and fascination with Vedic Mythology has led her even deeper down the Yogic path. Heidi brings the teachings from her inspiring teachers (Rod Stryker, Sarah Powers, Lorin Roche, Les Leventhal ) into class to share the luminous joy of this incredible practice with you.

Nickie Hanley

Nickie Hanley

Teacher, The Yoga Space Melbourne

Nickie’s yoga journey began in 2005 at her first yoga retreat in Bali. It was life changing. During that retreat she let go of old stories and stepped in to the life of a yogi and never looked back.

She completed her Teacher Training in 2010 with the Australia Yoga Academy (AYA) and has since completed multiple trainings with Power Living and Laughing Lotus in the United States (to name but a few!).

In 2013, Nickie created Disco Yoga; a fusion of powerful and soulful Vinyasa flow with a Live DJ. This incorporated Nickie’s previous life as a dancer with her love of yoga and music as a way for her students to connect more deeply to their own joy. A joy that they can take off their yoga mat in to their daily lives.

In 2015, Nickie began running yoga classes for kids involved with professional sports, donating all proceeds to the Green School in Bali.
