Surfing brought Ben to Yoga and he stayed with Yoga for the surfing. "They are both connected in so many ways and finding the flow of movement and breath is the key for achieving your highest potential in both". Ben is an east-coast Australian who grew up on the beach near Byron Bay. Became an Electrician in the early years before setting off on a travel adventure that would land him in Bali 13 years later! Easy going and always smiling, Ben completed his first 200hr Hatha training in Mexico and completed his 300hrs Vinyasa/YIN in Goa, India. He Undertook a SOMA Breathwork facilitator training in 2019 and joined the AYMC 200hr Traditional Tantra YTT in 2023. If you don't find Ben in the studio, you will see him on the beach or out in the water. “Ride the waves of life,” is his motto.

craig fisher


Craig's love for the yoga community stems from its nurturing and supportive nature, reminiscent of the communal and nature-connected upbringing he had in a rural environment. Yoga provided a space for emotional expression and growth, which he found deeply resonant.

He first encountered yoga in 2004 but his journey sparked in 2012 while in Nicaragua, where where yoga instructors Marc Laham and Megan Curry encouraged him to participate in daily morning practices, which reignited his interest and spurred his commitment to the practice. Over the following years, as Craig traveled the world working on private yachts, he sought out the best yoga studios in every new town he visited - eventually leading him to move to Bali to complete his first 200hr YTT with Eoin Finn. 

Today, Craig credits yoga not just as a practice but as an alchemy that has elevated his life, allowing him to dive deeper into his passions and connect more profoundly with both himself and the world around him.
