About Yoga Farm
After we saved an old farmhouse from being demolished, my family & I (husband Paul, 11 yo son Harvey and 9yo daughter Lulu) began transforming the building into a peaceful yoga studio.
It was going to be a massive project but we were committed to creating a space where the community to connect.
If 2020 taught us anything, it was the importance of community and connection and we believed that we could provide a place where people could come together to recharge the body, mind and soul.
We are very proud of the amazing transformation and we have been blown away by how the community has embraced our little studio in Mt Duneed. Here is a 3 minute video that illustrates how our love, time and attention gave the old house a second chance at life.
About Anna Rimmer
Yoga has been an enormous part of my life for almost 20 years.
I went to my first ‘proper’ yoga class at a studio in 2002 and I felt such an overwhelming sense of peace and calm during the class that I registered for a 600 hour teacher training right there on the spot!
That first class came at a time when there was no peace or calm in my life and I wanted to know how a physical practice could have such a profound effect on my mental health and emotional wellbeing.
The 600 hour/2 year teacher training at Dharma Yoga in East Bentleigh was life changing and yoga has been an essential part of my life ever since. I taught yoga for several years but had a break when I became a mum.
After I discovered Yin Yoga I felt driven to return to teaching again – the simplicity of the practice had such wonderful benefits and I wanted to know more.
In 2018 I completed a 50 hour yin consciousness training with Mark Pheeley and then a 25 hour yin & TCM training with Divine Journeys.
Yin is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and body types and I truly believe that everyone can benefit from the practice. It is the perfect balance to the business of life and it allows us to give back to ourselves.
Yin benefits us physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually and I hope to share this peaceful, nourishing practice with you soon.
I am also passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga with children, so this year I completed my Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Kids Yoga Academy. Saturday morning Family Yoga is an opportunity for parents/guardians to practice yoga with their 9-12 year old children. The classes are designed to increase strength, flexibility and balance while learning mindfulness techniques to use in times of stress and anxiety.
