Meet The Team

Christina Gagnier

Lead Facilitator

Christina is a yoga teacher and movement facilitator. She has been moving, dancing, and practicing yoga for almost 20 years. As a teacher, she has facilitated experiences all over the world, including in Bali, Thailand, New Zealand, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica, and the United States. As a yoga teacher, she has studied with a large variety of yogis from various lineages, such as Anusara, Embodied Flow, and with Marysia Do. 

Christina believes that movement can unlock opportunities for self integration and, therefore, better connection to the external world. She believes that the body holds the opportunity for awakening. For her, movement has been instrumental in recognizing and shifting patterns that have prevented her from having greater freedom in her life. Through yoga and movement, she hopes to give people the tools to choose how they wish to shape their lives. 

She is an ERYT 500 yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance who has been teaching since 2011. With more than 4000 classroom hours, she currently leads teacher trainings and mentoring programs internationally. She is also an Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapist through ISMETA. And is in the process of completing her Biodynamic Craniosacral Diploma. 

Lisa Ball

Lead Facilitator

Lisa has been joyfully dedicated to the path of yoga and meditation for over a 15 years. She first discovered yoga while studying law and instantly connected to a feeling of peace and calm she hadn’t felt before. These practices were invaluable during her studies and later years working as a lawyer.

 

Lisa eventually left her law career to train as a yoga and meditation teacher to share her passion with others. She spent two years living on the sacred island of Bali, deepening her studies, teaching yoga yoga full time and leading retreats.

 

Now resettled in Melbourne, Lisa teaches yoga and meditation full time. She also facilitates workshops, retreats and women’s circles.

 

Lisa has completed 500 hour RYT Teacher Training with Tara Judelle in the Embodied Flow method and a further 200 hour training with Cat Kabira in vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga. She has also completed 200 hours of Embodied Feminine Awakening training with Tina Nance.

Hailey Tzounos

Sequencing Maven, Space Holder

Hailey first stepped onto a yoga mat 10 years ago and didn’t know what happened. All she knew is that something inside her said ‘yes!’


Her naturally curious nature was sparked by how this practice was positively influencing so many areas of her life, from the simplicity of movement and breath. Her curious nature led her to expand into the teaching arena. 


She completed her first 200YTT with Power Living. Since then she has completed further trainings with; Cassie Lee and Duncan Peak through Power Living, Yin Yoga with Hugh Lee, Ashtanga YTT in India & most recently 300YTT with Christina Gagnier and Marysia Do. 


Her intention as a teacher is to meet her students and remind them they have all they need inside in order to awaken to their potential; on the mat and beyond. 


In her classes you will receive space to listen to your heart, feel alignment-focused sequences that ignite and soothe the body, and permission to be rebellious, curious & free. 


May this practice of Yoga spark the inner fire of curiosity & courage. May its teachings expand into the fabric of your life through your words & actions.
