Musculoskeletal Therapist

Jackson Lennan

Jackson is our Movement Guru, and will guide a number of our advanced mastery of movement modules - helping you to explore a diverse range of functional movement practises, and guide your understanding of progressive biomechanic theory.

I have been a PT for 12 years and in that time I pride myself on the fact that I have never stopped learning and relearning.

I did my degree in Musculoskeletal therapy (MST) over 6.5years part time, in between my PT sessions. It was around the same time that I first came across Ido Portal on YouTube (training on the road) and so started my obsession. Endless hours of rewatching videos to try and learn different movements that I thought looked the coolest. In January of 2015 I did my first workshop with Ido and his team, and then started online coaching with him later that year.

Towards the end of my MST studies I was introduced to the functional medicine world and started following the works of Chris Kresser and Dr Mark Hyman. From here I adopted the 4 pillar framework - Movement, nutrition, sleep and stress management.

It was soon after I finished my degree that I stopped almost all ‘hands on treatments’ with people. Now I educate others on each of the 4 pillars with an emphasis on a movement first approach. My goal for all I come into contact with is for them to build a daily movement practice (whatever that looks like for them) and then from here start to introduce the other pillars.

What do I do? I provoke change by empowering others through education so that THEY can live their best lives.

Wim Hof Instructor & Breath Coach

Dani Smith

A leader of the wellness industry in her breathwork coaching & techniques, will educate you on the science of the breath, as part of the ‘Subtle Daily Practises’ segment of this special course! With her diverse experience in the sports sector, Dani has extensive insights to share.

Danielle started her career working in the corporate world where she worked long hours and wore busy-ness like a badge of honour. This workaholic attitude led to the demise of her health and she had to quit and learn how to heal her body. In this process of self healing she realised that she was never taught how to manage stress and how to survive the corporate environment – so she made it her life's mission in understanding stress, breathing and movement so that she could provide people with the foundational tools that can help them to endure the corporate world and they can live life with energy and vitality. She went and studied a variety of different techniques and modalities to help with her mission.

She is a Certified Wim Hof Instructor, XPT Performance Breath Coach, Oxygen Advantage practitioner, Personal Trainer and Remedial Massage Therapist.

She has previously worked with Professional sports teams including the Gold Coast Suns, Waratahs, South Sydney Rabbitohs, GWS Giants. She has also worked with many individuals and businesses teaching people about the importance of movement and breath to ensure that they are armed with the tools in being able to handle the modern day BUSY world so that they can thrive not just survive.

Vedic Meditation Coach

Rich Muir

An experienced coach of meditation, Rich is able to teach and contrast a diversity of different meditation techniques and give you practical experience using them. Rich is extremely passionate about Vedic Meditation, and has since established his own meditation retreats and courses.

Rich’s foundational passion, lies in helping people increase their happiness and remove the toxic modern-day epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression from our nervous systems.

After a long & constant search for something ‘more’ or ‘deeper’, Rich ended up at meditation, and remarks there has been nothing that has brought as much joy, creativity, love, laughter and peace to my life as Vedic Meditation.

It gave the power to be able to respond to life with creativity rather than react to life with emotionality.
Hence why he knew this was my calling to share this amazing, scientific tool with the modern world.
A tool to navigate this crazy world we live in with all the peaks and valleys and demands. So fast forward to today…

Rich enjoys sharing his love and learnings so far around this technique with you - within the Elements Course. With the help of Vedic meditation, Rich is able to help millions of others live a life with more love, more peace, more creativity and joy, and loads less reactivity to the inevitable stresses of the modern world.

Along his journey towards this discpline, Rich has learnt so much about the world of people (as prickly as it can sometimes be…). As well as all aspects of a business – sales, marketing, communication, managing people, dealing with the worries of small businesses and cash flow headaches. This only deepens his advice & perspectives to give to you, as students!

Danique Hanson

500 E-RYT Senior Facilitator

Coming from a background in Gymnastics, Danique has always had a deep love of strong, functional body movement. She discovered Yoga in 2009 and her practice helped her to overcome a long term struggle with anxiety, disordered eating and body image issues, as well as allowing her to feel more connected to the world around her. From this grew a great desire to share Yoga with others, so she made the decision to leave a decade long career as a Bookkeeper to pursue this passion and began her career as a Yoga Teacher in 2014.
Since then has continued to study different styles of movement to quench her never ending thirst for knowledge of all things health and fitness.
She is a self proclaimed anatomy nerd who has a strong passion for safe and proper alignment & through her teaching she aims to inspire those around her to reconnect with themselves through movement & breath, while falling in love with their bodies and all of its incredible capabilities.

Leanne Gerich

500 E-RYT Senior Facilitator

MEET LEANNE

Leanne started practicing yoga in 2011 in Vancouver BC. Although she didn’t know at the time, she sampled many different styles, specifically hatha, kundalini and vinyasa. Her yoga journey finally began to deepen in 2013 when she became a daily practitioner of Bikram yoga. This is a Hatha style yoga in heated rooms. It was an encouraging style for her at the time, as the repeated sequence helped her feel change in her body. Before yoga, she could hardly touch her toes! Leanne was a classic gym/runner and non-stretcher.

After a regular practice for many months, she wanted to dive into a Yoga Teacher Training. She wasn’t sure if she would be able to teach (stage fright), but really admired her many teachers in Vancouver. Leanne was already in study to become a Traditional Chinese medicine Practitioner - studying acupuncture and herbology, but loved yoga and needed to learn more.

At the beginning of 2015, she began a short teaching intensive to start the journey. She took a Strala Teaching Intensive with Tara Stiles. Strala is a modern yoga style incorporating Vinyasa with Qi Gong theory. So think really flowy, non alignment focused yoga. Instead of thinking about the posture, its focus is primarily to get out of the head and feel into the movements and breath. Very different to Bikram!

After that intensive, Leanne joined a full 200 hour YTT later that year in Karma yoga. After the Strala training, Leanne had stopped Bikram and started practicing Dharma and Vinyasa. She loved Dharma for the heavy inversion practice, and Vinyasa for learning the alignment cues. She wanted to learn more. Her first 200 hour course was a Vinyasa focus with Yin element to give understanding on the opposite theories. Her 200 hour was a one month intensive at Karma Yoga in Vancouver. Her lead teacher in this program was a Vinyasa trained with heavy influence in Ashtanga - which is the blueprint of how Leanne teaches today.

Karma Yoga was a center developed for giving opportunity to all walks of life. The program was intense and focused heavily on philosophy as it is the path to help heal past traumas. After receiving a partial scholarship for the program, Leanne went on to teach Karmic hours for the first year after her training ended (until moving to Australia). She is forever grateful for the Karmic path as it was the only reason she was able to stand up and teach in front of the public eye. Understand it was a service to others made the task less frightening.

Leanne was lucky while in Canada to practice with the many epic teachers in Vancouver such as Meghan Currie, Chris Dugan, Slava Golovough, and Steve Ferezzi. These teachers are still to this day her main influence - not only in the epic skill level they had but in their personality as a teacher, creativity and personal practice. During her time in Vancouver, Leanne completed 4 years of study to become a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner (herbologist and acupuncturist).

After moving to Australia, Leanne went back to NYC in 2018 to study her 500 hour program with Sri Dharma Mittra. While in Vancouver, she learnt that her favourite style to practice was the Dharma lineage. The classes were always a blend of vinyasa and workshop-style postures where she learnt more interesting transitions and had a lot of fun with these teachers. The class was never stuffy - it was always a group laughing, learning many postures and transitions, listening to hip hop - absolutely no ego. On top of the fun of the class was a more in depth look at philosophy, pranayama and meditation. You always hear the phrase “that’s not yoga”. This phrase does not exist for Dharma yogis. It is a lineage of full compassion, challenging Asana, freedom to be seen and zero judgement. It was the real deal to her. She was so excited and humbled to train under Yogi master himself 80 year old Sri Dharma Mittra. This took her philosophy interest to the next level and her favourite part of the advanced training was the Spiritual discourse lead by Sri Dharma himself.

Within these studies and after, Leanne has studied short courses in Yin, Tantra theory as well as sat her first 10 day silent Vipassana meditation. She is, like all yoga teachers, a forever student, and most recently spent 2020 studying under Paul Grilley for Yin and Carlos Pomeda in yoga history, philosophy and Tantra. She is looking forward to her first Vedic meditation course with Jac Lewis in 2021.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM LEANNE?

Leanne is looking forward to talking about ancient philosophy, and how we can apply it to our daily lives now. How do we apply this in our teaching? What does science say today? Expect her philosophy teaching to be rooted in a practical manner, with easy to add application into your teaching and your life. We will take a more in depth look at the scriptures, and how to pick apart the intelligence to create empowering sequences.

Expect to learn more advanced Pranayama and meditation techniques, while simplifying it into your own personal practice. Understand the meridian theory when teaching Yin to understand if the sequence makes sense for your theme. And above all - how to find your Dharma. How to find your unique purpose and message as a teacher. We all have unique experiences which make us all valuable teachers. Helping the students find their Dharma and confidence gives Leanne so much joy.
