Our Yoga Teachers
Since a young age Tye has been fascinated by physical movement, meditations and the universal power of kindness. Coming from an entertainment and fitness background Tye would rely on yoga asana and meditation for rehabilitation and flexibility not completely understanding the true power of yogic living. This all change in 2013 while traveling through India when she participated in a specific yoga class that invoked and experience she had never felt before. From this moment Tye has dedicated herself to understand all she can about yogic living, and energetic healing on a personal level and also to share the phenomenon with others. Tye is a 500RYT / 200E-RYT Yoga instructor, Massage therapist and Energetic healer and teacher. Through dedication of study , Self practice, and countless moments on the mat she loves nothing more than to share love, creativity and self connection through yoga. Tye is a true believer of kindness and creative understanding. Anything can be achieved through an open mind. When she isn’t in the Yoga Shala you can find her at the beach surfing or working hard on her puns and dad jokes.
Skaya is a 500 hour certified Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Asana teacher.
Her journey to a spiritual practice started in sport science and health, naturally merging her love of the human form, dance and wellness she began exploring yoga. After 6 years of teaching she decided to deepen her knowledge and journeyed to the birth place of yoga, India.
As an established teacher she found herself developing new practices, and identifying areas within her teaching style that could be expanded on. Tying together traditional Indian practices with her extensive knowledge of western movement based flow she provides a deeply relaxing asana experience.
Her gentle nature and attention to detail allows all levels of students the chance to confidently explore their asana, pranayama and meditation practice with ease. Her passion for alignment, a moving meditation, and pranayama developed a style of flow that leaves one feeling supported, spacious and light.
Based in India for the past 2 years, when Skaya isn’t on her mat you’ll find her hiking, exploring new cultures and enjoying the ocean.
Skaya brings her magic to Talalla Yoga from April 2019
James ‘Fish’ Gill is an Australian transformational facilitator and yoga teacher. He creates transformative social and emotional learning experiences that grow empathy, connection and understanding in the face of conflict, complexity and difficulty (or as he terms it, turn shit to gold). Fish’s programs have grown connection and transformed complex interpersonal challenges in multinational organisations, businesses, non-profits and schools throughout Australia since 2008.
As a consultant Fish advises on the development and delivery of contemporary rites of passage programs in schools and communities, and supports the development of transformative facilitation skills in facilitators and educators committed to the growth of compassionate, connected, courageous communities.
Fish’s love of yoga has played an essential role in developing his sense of peace and contentment in a complex, challenging, ever changing world. His great passion is working with men who are keen to relate more closely to themselves and others, sharing yoga and breaking down modern misconceptions of yoga that can make it feel inaccessible. He teaches from the tradition of ISHTA- the Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda, having completed his yoga teacher training through Tamara Yoga in Perth, Western Australia.
His warm, compassionate facilitation style draws on his experiences as an educator, actor loving father of two young adults, and passionate, fallible human.
