Alexandra Almond

Alexandra Almond

Owner / Director

Alexandra co-founded Yoga Sita with husband Tim Almond in 2016. She began practicing yoga & meditation over 15 years ago to assist with her own back issues and soon realised the vast benefits yoga has on the body as well as mental and emotional health. Alexandra has a vast array of training and experience ranging from a University Degree in Exercise & Health Science, Diploma of Dance in Melbourne, two year initial yoga teacher training with Tamara Graham of Tamara Yoga and subsequent trainings with Laughing Lotus Yoga NYC, Rod Stryker of ParaYoga, Janet Stone Yoga and Tantric embodiment training with Eliyah School of the Feminine Arts, Intuitive Body & Dance and Dancing Eros. The impact these teachings have had on her life makes Alexandra extremely passionate about sharing them with the world. Her nurturing style is infused with heart & soul with her mission being to bring students back to their essential nature: bliss, joy and inner freedom. Creating Yoga Sita to share the magic of yoga with others and impact lives in a positive way is a privilege and absolute joy.

Alexandra currently teaches many weekly yoga classes at Yoga Sita as well as meditation workshops, private feminine embodiment sessions, women’s workshops & courses, local and overseas retreats for women plus co-gender retreats with her husband and fellow yoga teacher Tim.

Selena respects the individual and is there to support and nurture her students, to help them achieve a sense of fulfilment wherever they are in their yoga journey.

Laura Kolagow

Laura started her yoga journey in her 20’s whilst working as a Remedial Massage Therapist. A regular Iyengar and Hatha practice consolidated her knowledge of body mechanics, however, it was the overall feeling of wellbeing and connectedness that particularly resonated and swayed her to take formal teacher training in the beautiful Byron Bay. She maintains an ongoing student perspective by attending regular classes, workshops and teacher trainings. Laura teaches fun, playful vinyasa flow with a focus on alignment, transitions and breath to develop a deeper level of awareness, as well as strength and flexibility. She also teaches yin and restorative classes guiding her students to go deep within through compassionate awareness and presence. A strong proponent of Laura’s teaching style is to encourage students to tune in to the inherent wisdom that the body holds.
