Isabelle Stoner

Isabelle is one of our most senior and well-respected teachers at Shining Light Yoga. When asked why she teaches yoga she says because she has experienced firsthand the potential for the practice to nourish, ground and enhance our lives. She sees the practice of yoga as a therapy for healing and unravelling the complications that got in the way of our essential experience of unity and joy.

As human beings, we are far from perfect, I try to consistently remind myself and my students to be patient on this journey.

Isabelle teachers from a place of compassion, a place that recognises that we are all in different bodies, moving forward from different experiences. Our individuality requires an individual approach, there is not one form of asana or practice that can accommodate us all on any given day.

She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her teaching she attributes a great deal of this to many of the inspiring and knowledgeable teachers she has studied and practiced with along the way. Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Ayurveda, as well modern yoga anatomy are some of her offerings.

Her intention as a teacher is to let students find space on their mats to settle in, open up or just let it out. She hopes that in the end, the classes she teachers inspires students to simply find their own way, deeper into a practice that they love.
