Facilitators

Sally Riddell’s yoga journey began as a sporty 14 year old. Since then, she has had over 2500 hours of training in various aspects of yoga in India and Australia. She has been teaching yoga for over 21 years and has been a qualified yoga therapist since 2010. 

She has been using chants in classes for over 15 years and received her formal certification as a Vedic Chant teacher 4 years ago. 

She regularly hosts yogic philosophy classes, chanting workshops and has organised wellness/transformational retreats in Australia, Spain and India.

Her tertiary training in Fine Art and Photography has contributed a visual aesthetic that she brings in the form of mandalas – be they created from nature, yogic tradition, personal drawings, or physical shaping through the movement of body and breath in patterns. 

The myths and legends from the Indian pantheon have always held a place in her yogic practice and teaching. Four years ago, this skill became independent of her yoga teaching when she began working with a group of story tellers from Perth.

 The experience of storytelling, is a rich and inspiring medicine for teller and listener alike, and Sally makes this experience of stories a most memorable one as she transports you to magical places in your mind.
