Charley Hickey C-IAYT – Yoga Therapist

 

I enjoy sharing yoga with others so much that I feel guilty calling it work! With a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys to share my days, life really isn’t so bad.  I’m very blessed to have such a good work/life balance.

My yoga journey began at the tender age of 11.  I was suffering from insomnia and unhappy that no practical help was available. Over the years I practiced breathing and meditation techniques that allowed me to manage my insomnia.  From that point on yoga became a part of my life.  The physical side came later for me which is a backwards journey compared to the common route.  Most students usually begin for the physical benefits.  This often then leads to an interest in meditation and breath work.

A few years after I moved to Perth, a friend asked me why I wasn’t a yoga teacher. It was a “lightbulb” moment for me.  How could I have not seen this before?!  I have been teaching yoga in Perth since 2003 and haven’t looked back.
