Carmela was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga in 1996 and after discovering its multitude of benefits, she began a daily practice in June 1997.

Carmela has been teaching since 2000, completing the Teacher Training program (750 hours+) with Monica & Gregor (8 Limbs) in 2002.

She has completed the Primary and Intermediate Series and has worked on the Advanced Series over the years.

Her inspiring approach focuses on observational, technical and communicative skills.

She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to her teachings as well as a sense of humour.

She continues to be mentored by her teacher, Dr Monica Gauci.

Carmela is at senior teacher at The Yoga Clinic and conducts the morning Mysore Style Ashtanga classes and also teaches Pre-natal Yoga classes.


‘…by keeping on this path, we slowly peel back the layers to reveal this joy and freedom… when we cleanse our bodies and mind with this discipline, we start to see streams of Light in the tunnel of darkness…’
