Welcome to Theatreyoga

Theatreyoga is a newly designed discipline which draws on practices and activities from the traditions of theatre and yoga. It works with intuition, spontaneity and humour. Theatreyoga is not a platform for performance or acting. Emphasis is based more on exploring genuine authenticity of enquiry and movement, allowing a deeper work to mature through the meditative processes of Yoga and the playful expression of Theatre, to ultimately reveal your Gift. 

“…Theatre and Yoga are actually polar-opposite practices and are therefore complementary. Similar to the colours of light; Magenta is the complementary colour of Green . When placed together the two colours combined form white light. Side-by-side, they provide the highest possible contrast and reinforce each other’s brightness…”

This is the concept which makes theatreyoga an interesting and potentially transformational practice. It is about deep enquiry and compelling exploration into discovering your inner calling, and refining the direction and integrity of your life compass.

“Change occurs when one becomes what he is, not when he tries to become what he is not” Arnold Beisser

” Theatre Yoga was a transformational experience for me. I got to work my body and my mind together in a collaborative space where everyone’s experience helped me to gain insight into my self. ”

Matthew, Artist - Designer, Preston

” The theatre yoga workshop was very timely in my personal journey of healing and growth. It helped me identify what I needed to work on next- it brought me to the space between yoga and theatre. A ‘yoga’ person myself, I have since taken up ‘theatre’ to be more confident, to express my true self better and to celebrate who I am. I am thankful for this experience. ”

Elizebeth; Educator, Victoria

“The workshop was amazing. I left feeling nourished. Thanks again.”

Melissa; Teacher, Clifton Hill
