Anne Marie Riego

I believe in daily conscious movement – whether it’s walking, swimming, yoga, dance or Pilates. For me, to move is to live an awesome life! I have been and still am a dedicated yoga student for the past 16 years. My classes are definitely energetic, tough and challenging but you will always get personal attention and a whole lot of loving- this I guarantee! As I continue to teach, I am truly inspired by my students’ willingness to move and commitment to their health and well-being. They always give me 100% which is why in turn I always give 100% back. My role as a teacher is now blurred where my students inspire me to grow and keep showing up on my mat – no matter what. I love that I am a part of their journey in some way.

Say Hi to the Team!

We don’t bite.


Mic Williams

I’ve always enjoyed physical activity, from swimming as a teenager to martial arts in my early 20’s. Yoga came to me when I really needed some self-awareness and nourishment for my body. My own personal practice and teaching experience informs how I guide the class, striving for a balance between effort and ease, work and play. My classes allow the student to have their own revelations and victories and also supporting them when they feel challenged. The unique community at Yoga High respectfully encourages real personal growth, the kind of living that invites the totality of being to be expressed. Yoga and conscious movement, is one of the methods to bring any individual to a deeper understanding of themselves and greater appreciation of life. And here at Yoga High, our classes do just that – an invitation to look deeper within. See you on the mat!


Natalie Arena

I discovered Yoga High about 4 years ago when trying to find a place close to home with different classes on offer. The Hot HIIT pilates classes drew me to Yoga High and I instantly fell in love. Not only was I welcomed with open arms, but I discovered other classes that I never thought I would attend regularly, in particular Bikram Yoga. After my first Bikram class I swore I would never do that again, I now not only teach Bikram at Yoga High but Hot HIIT Pilates as well. What I love about Yoga High are the friends you make within this wonderful community. Everyone works hard, sweats and laughs together, shares strong energy and positive vibes in the hot room. The best part? Leaving the room after trying your absolute best and being congratulated, motivated and inspired by the amazing teachers and dedicated students. There are no judgements here. Everyone is at a different stage in their practice and we respect that. Whether we’re aiming high to master poses in Bikram yoga or building core strength in Hot HIIT, I’ll support you on your journey. All I ask from my students is to try their best, listen to their bodies, learn from their challenges and most importantly have fun.


Sonya Gerace

I began my own journey at Yoga High as a student in January 2018 and have reaped the many benefits of the hot yoga and Hot HIIT Pilates classes. For me, the two practices align so perfectly together and I have experienced a connection between mind, body and spirit that I was never able to achieve with my previous fitness regime. So when Anne Marie and Mic suggested I undertake Hot HIIT Pilates teacher training, I jumped at the chance! I aim to deliver a challenging and motivating class where every student is welcomed, feels that their personal needs are catered for and leaves the studio empowered. Part of my mission is to nurture and instil in my students the sense of community that is integral to the Yoga High family. I invite you all to try both Hot HIIT Pilates and hot yoga in your regular practise and you too will soon feel the amazing benefits of a regular practice of with the Yoga High community. Come sweat with me, be challenged and have fun at the same time!


Vida Petko

The greatest gift you can give someone is to include them and treat them as you would want to be treated. This is how I live my life, with empathy, sincerity and love. This is the gift I wish to bring to the students of Yoga High. My dream of becoming a Bikram yoga teacher. has been realised for me through the amazing mentorship and support from Anne Marie and Mic. I am now ready, excited and inspired to help make your experience an amazing journey, in and out of the hot room. Each and every time you walk through the doors into the arms of the Yoga High family, we will be there to embrace your journey. I want to impact and influence your personal development with joy and peace.


Simone Gabrielle

I’ve always valued self-love, and while practising that can be easier said than done –joining the Yoga High community allowed me to truly explore the strength of my mind, body and soul. Now a HOT HIIT Pilates teacher, I see my own experience reflected in the practice of my students – the strength that grows in the drips of sweaty perseverance, the inner curiosity as we complete one more push-up than from the previous class and the joy that radiates through the shared experience of the hot room. To the past, current, and future students: I am honoured to support you in your Yoga High journey and I can’t wait to see you out on the mat!


Beatriz Montes

I discovered Yoga in 2002 when my doctor prescribed visits to the gym as part of my treatment for symptoms of anxiety and depression. Although I loved it from the start, it wasn’t until 2016 when I immersed myself deeper into my practice that I started to feel every single cell in my body energised by its calling. It may sound like a cliche but the saying “when the student is ready the teacher will appear” very much resonates with my journey. I love that Yoga has challenged and transformed my emotions, my mind and my body in a way that I believe anything is possible when you are prepared to show up. My goal is to have my students leave each class feeling grounded, connected to their centre and inspired, the same way my teachers, my peers and my personal practice inspires me every day.”


Tineke Huy

My practice at Yoga High has completely transformed my life with my own personal health issues. I have Crohn’s disease and ever since I started practising here at Yoga High, my doctors have been impressed with my results. I want to do the same for my students: inspire them to keep active, get a regular sweat session here and see for themselves the amazing benefits both mind, body and spirit. I teach a fun but tough class both physically and mentally. I use a lot of the ‘toys’ – magic rings, blocks, bands and so everyone is challenged in some way but where everyone succeeds too!


Sabina Gillon

Living life to the fullest was not always my way. As a child I was always the sour one in the corner not feeling like I belonged and life was just plain miserable. Fast forward to today – a changed woman. I am passionate about life and all that it gives me I embrace wholeheartedly. As a movement teacher of Zumba for 8 years and now Hot HIIT Pilates I believe that I am the luckiest person to have the greatest job who gets to witness people’s journeys physically and emotionally. Yoga High is my home away from home. Students & teachers bring in so much love and positive vibe creating a beautiful sanctuary. I teach a challenging but fun class where everyone is also having the best time ever! And this is the essence I am always after where my students come out of a tough class with me feeling stronger than before class started. This is how I win.


Elliot Provis

The most satisfying feedback to me after classes is that people feel as though they had a real workout. Yoga & Pilates offer the opportunity to pursue this, by their very nature. The exercises are an effective way to open up, stretch out, and enhance strength and flexibility. In turn, the effort and concentration required of individuals, to achieve this challenges the other part of the brain. By striving to reach a point of fluidity in mind and body, we can achieve, not perfection, but an unbounded strength and resilience in the face of adversity. I chose to teach at Yoga High because of community, and because of loyalty to friends and family. It’s simply something unique to Yoga High, and it’s definitely something worth pursuing.


Liz Jakab

I found yoga in 2015 and it helped with my anxiety where everything started to shift for me, energetically, physically and emotionally. It has enriched the relationships I have with others around me, and constantly reminds me to stay in the present moment where true joy lies. By connecting your breath with movement, you will build this refuge within you to which you can always come back to when you pass through life’s storms. I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to share and teach something that I am so passionate about where students realize the power that is already within them. At yoga high we create a safe, sacred space in order for transformation and healing to take place on and off the mat. Hope to see you in the hot room soon.


Shawna Leyton

Yoga high studio is a community that welcomes every person who walks through the door, regardless of their fitness level and encourage the best for EVERY student. I realised this when I stepped foot into their doors mid-2019. Yoga high is a place to let your day go, focus on yourself and allow you to challenge your body. The studio has allowed me to develop my knowledge and teaching skills I never knew I had. I now have confidence and strength that I thought wasn’t possible a year ago! I teach both the incredible Hot HITT Pilates classes and the beautiful Yin with Sound Bath Healing Meditation. Movement is extremely important to me. If you stop using your muscles, which are created to be worked, they begin to weaken and fatigue. The more movement I have in my life, the happier, the healthier and the more focused I become.Through staying present in postures and holding awareness of our breath, we start making changes deep within the physical and mental structure – uniting the mind, body and spirit. The opportunities for personal growth at Yoga High have exceeded my expectations. With their wide variety of classes and teachers, you’re guaranteed to learn something new every time you step in that room.


Emily Krezlewski

My first encounter with yoga was at the gym, where I thought it could be a good addition to my fitness training. I tried various forms over the years, but was absolutely hooked when I discovered vinyasa in a heated a room! Now yoga is part of my daily life, and I truly believe that it has something to offer everyone. From calming the mind through pranayama and meditation, to loosening tight bodies and alleviating tension through movement. Plus it makes you feel so good, after your practice you can’t help smiling! I teach flow classes with a focus on breath and alignment to protect the body from injury. I want my students to feel challenged during a class, but to walk away with a sense of achievement and a smile on their face. I like to create space in their bodies and balance in their minds and daily life. I think that if we can enjoy the wobbles and falls that come from trying something new and pushing the boundaries, we can allow ourselves to have fun and grow.

Tara Andreula

I started at Yoga High during a difficult and stressful time in which the whole world was experiencing...2020. Completing the 200 day challenge at Yoga High acted as an outlet for me whereby the stress of school, being stuck indoors and away from friends and family became less overwhelming on my health. This is one of the main reasons why I became a teacher. I wanted my classes to bring others as much joy, happiness and health Pilates had brought to me. I believe that as I teach there is a simultaneous growth between both students and myself. Students grow physically and mentally pushing their limits, while I gain more confidence, and am able to use my creativity in order to ensure a great class that caters for all. I like to teach my classes with good music and a sense of togetherness to motivate not only the students but also myself, so that we can work together and encourage each other. Being a student at yoga high has made me a better version of myself, and now that I have the honour to teach and help others reach their goals, it is my upmost privilege.


Mitch Leyton

After completing my first Bikram Yoga class I felt extremely fatigued, but weirdly enough, energised and ready to seize the day. I was never a gym person but between the Yoga and Hot HIIT Pilates classes at Yoga High, I finally found a fitness studio that intrigued, motivated and challenged me – all at the same time! Seeing students and teachers coming together and the loving friendships that are formed here at Yoga High is nothing like I have ever experienced before. A year ago, I didn't even know what Pilates was, let alone did I think I could be teaching it! Taking that first step into Yoga High, changed my perspective of my mind, body and soul. I realised this after being offered to complete my Pilates teacher training, to take any opportunity that may arise in your life – and in opening that door, many many adventures await. And this is where I am now – hungry to learn and develop both as a student and a teacher. Yoga High is a place where this happens every single time spent on your mat.

Claire Vandali

I am thrilled to be joining the team of Yoga High as it is where my yoga journey began in practice and training. As a dancer from a young age, I’ve always been very in tune with my body, where it sits and flows in the world. But not until delving into the practice have I been able to give back to my body and make real positive connections and changes to my being. There’s nothing quite like hot yoga to introduce you to, strengthen and nurture every single fibre of your body. The community at Yoga High welcomes you with open arms. We grow together and I am inspired by anyone and everyone who walks through our Yoga High door. I am so grateful that every time I hit the mat I gain more respect, love and knowledge about the practice and through it, about myself. To be able to pass it on and share that energy with others is why I am excited to teach.


Matisse Riego-Coia

Growing up in a family surrounded by a lifestyle of fitness and health was actually kind of overwhelming. I used to find it really difficult to motivate myself to move and take care of my body because I was comfortable with staying in my comfort zone. I then began my practice with Yoga High when I was about 12 and completed a challenge that was so empowering for my mind and body. Over the years of being close to the Yoga High community I have seen so many people come through and be completely transformed with their journey which has been inspiring to witness. When 2020 hit, I began to teach online (which was nerve-racking for me I’ll be honest)which helped pull me out of a rut and taught me to prioritise my health first and how important it is to move my body. AND and I found so much bliss in seeing my students happy smiling faces on zoom. I think that’s what makes Yoga High so incredible and separates it from a business - it is a safe space, a happy place, a second family for so many people. There is something about the practice of yoga, meditation and pilates that allows so much room for personal growth. It has taught me to stand tall and be resilient through times of doubt where I didn’t believe in myself. It’s given me the strength to chase goals outside the hot room as well, I am now a pole dancer which I never thought I could be strong enough to do. I continue to push myself outside my comfort zone and explore all the world has to offer. My journey with Yoga High is always progressing further, through times of doubt and times where I feel confident & certain - Yoga High is always there to welcome me home and for that I am grateful


Alisha Caruk

Throughout my childhood, I was always active whether it be through the form of dance, gymnastics, calisthenics or swimming. However, my passion for fitness and health flourished particularly in 2018 when I started Year 11 and more importantly at Yoga High. Since then through both education and personal experiences, I developed a strong passion for the art of movement and the many effects it has on the body. During COVID I undertook a Mat Pilates certification and am currently studying Human Bioscience and Anatomy as part of my university degree. Throughout my time at Yoga High I have made my way through all classes; each presenting unique challenges and lessons to take away. I have always been drawn more so to the Hot HIIT Pilates and Power Burn Pilates classes as I love the elegancy of slow, purposeful movements as designed by Joseph Pilates as well as the explosive movements that get your heart racing and endorphins pumping. One thing's for sure when you attend my class you can expect to be pushed to your limits and leave feeling better than you came! Although some call me crazy, my favourite exercise is burpees because at first, they were difficult but through persistence and determination, I have come to LOVE them. I aspire to be the teacher who pushes you to do better, be better and truly exceed your own expectations so that you too can learn to love the exercises you may find challenging. As a member of the Yoga High community, I want you to feel welcome and accepted no matter where you are on your journey. I look forward to meeting you in class!


Lucy Bradley

Looking back now, I realise I’ve always been very aware in my body. A dancer from a young age, you will still find me dancing down the aisle at the supermarket! I dabbled with yoga and Pilates, but it wasn’t until I was coming out of a pretty rough patch in my life that I found yoga properly. I had a new job, moved house, was starting to settle in and feel myself again. One Saturday morning, I dragged my sister with me for moral support, to a yoga class and I’ve never looked back. I loved everything about it. I felt like I had found my place that came naturally but was also very challenging and wonderfully empowering. Doing my teacher training in 2020 was certainly challenging, there were times of uncertainty, but it gave me a sense of purpose during a crazy time. I’m so excited to share my practice with my students, to help them discover all the benefits I have found on and off the mat.


Deana Simunic

I found Bikram Yoga at Yoga High in 2018 after searching for a practice that’s gentler on my body. I had spent years at the gym doing high impact weight training and my body was sore and aching from it. Bikram Yoga has a special place in my life and is so much more than just a practice for my fitness. The minute I step into the hot room, I leave any stress behind and it’s the only time I manage to completely switch my mind off for 90 minutes to focus on me. Each class heals and cleanses us physically, mentally and spiritually. As I embark on my journey as a Bikram Yoga Teacher, I am challenged and rewarded each time I stand in front a class. The Yoga High family is a beautiful supportive energy and I look forward to giving the gift of the Bikram practice to others.



My journey with yoga began 7 years ago, at an extremely chaotic and difficult time in my life. My self-care was at an all-time low, and anxiety was controlling my every move. After practising yoga, I found a deep sense of calmness and peace wash over me, which continued to last after stepping off my mat. Through yoga, my relationship with myself completely transformed and my curiosity to learn more about eastern philosophy and expand my spiritual practice landed me at the foothills of the Himalayas in India. After completing my Ashtanga, Hatha and Vinyasa training, I left India months later, feeling immensely connected to myself and the world around me. My classes vary from fiery and energetic to slow mellow fluid flows, focusing on the different chakra systems, elements of nature, breathwork and finishing with a meditation using singing bowls. The community at Yoga High is a special one. It is a space of warm, welcoming energy, non-judgement and is full of uplifting and encouraging support from all. My goal as a teacher is to hold space for each student to deeply connect with themselves, openly practise self-love and walk away feeling blissful.



My yoga journey all began in early 2018 when I planted the seed for committing to live a more peaceful, graceful and harmonious lifestyle. It all started with one sudden realisation that my own anxiety, fears, and blockages would continue to take over every aspect of my life until I set an intention to apply my own discipline and courage to march my way through a journey of healing, transformation and growth. After 2 years of practising yoga, I flew to India to complete my yoga teacher training in an ashram, where I was so fortunate to learn and live the philosophy of the practice more deeply. When I returned to Melbourne, it became my soulful purpose to share my knowledge and experience of the sacred practice. In my classes, I hold space for students of all different backgrounds, personalities and levels of experience. I offer a variety of challenges, themes and experiences, and I aspire students to feel more connected, grounded, energised, graceful and wiser at the end of the class compared to the start of the class. The students have always been my teachers and guide to my own development and growth in my ongoing journey.



I have been a Behavioural Economist/NLP practitioner and student of Positive Psychology for over two decades. Yoga came to play strong role in 2018 when I was in search for a blend of mind, body and spirituality training. I longed for movement with purpose, a practice with intention and a wholistic approach to train the body/mind. I believe that Happiness is an individual creation that can’t be copied from a recipe and that in this quest for happiness, partial solutions don’t work. I also believe that it is not enough to Know how to do it, we must also do, consistently, deliberately and curiously . This is what Yoga provides for me. It is a daily opportunity to challenge myself, to spend quality time with my inner thoughts getting to know more of what makes me individual, and learning to quiet the mind in the daily meditation. I choose courage, embrace frustrations and thrive in creative environments and that is what I try to bring to my practice and my teaching. I (almost) always find a reason to be joyful and be grateful and if you have crossed my path you know that I care (and I mean it). Sharing yoga in a community and see others go through their own journey is much more enchanting than anticipated and I have been on a high since commencing my teaching with Yoga High, I look forward to see you in class, to know you though practising together and to learn from you as we explore the possibilities of what Yoga brings to us daily.


Stoss Joson

Yoga High is much more than just your average studio. I have found my true self here and found a place to feel grounded. I began my journey a few years ago, searching for something that would change my entire being. After jumping from multiple types of work outs, classes, gyms – I found an even balance with the Pilates and yoga classes at Yoga High. I have always been into physical training, but this is the first studio I can call a happy place and a second home. My first class was a challenge and I thought I’d never return but the love and energy from this studio is too infectious - I couldn’t help myself! When I was asked to complete the teacher training, I jumped at the opportunity! I am absolutely thrilled to be sharing this energy with my students. I feel honored and blessed to be teaching Pilates classes at Yoga High. I aim for my classes to be super challenging and fun – let’s have a laugh and get super sweaty together!


Sangeetha Nagaratnam

I was blown away by the paradox of finding calm in a steady mind amidst the discomfort of all externalities in my first hot yoga class at 40.5 degrees Celsius and 40 percent humidity. Living in the middle of the bustling New York City and working in corporate finance at a fast-paced beauty company, I realized that quietening the noisy mind was not just a possibility, but also a necessity. Since then, the practice of yoga both on and off the mat acts as my compass in life. I am an avid Ashtanga Yoga practitioner and a certified arm balance coach. I am also deeply passionate about movement from various disciplines and continue to explore new movement practices. My flow classes incorporate the concept of moving with breath to encourage practitioners to move with awareness, self-explore and build strength both physically and mentally. I am artistic with my creative movement flow as I am convinced that movement allows for the full expression of our true selves.


Pilates Teacher

Daria Szczepanska

I have been practising Pilates for a couple of years now and instantly fell in love with it. Pilates is more than exercise to me; it is therapy and provides me with the mental clarity I need to go about my day. I celebrate my body every day through movement and I listen to what it needs whether it be a light stretch or intense workout, I thank my body afterwards and absolutely love the rush of endorphins that follow. I want my students to feel motivated, be excited and push like there is no tomorrow because they are moving their body by themselves and FOR themselves. My students deserve to feel accomplished after their workouts and always ready to come back and sweat it out. I hope I can inspire my students to always have a smile while pushing to find their full potential in my classes. The Yoga High community is a close family who support absolutely everyone to strive and get stronger – I am honoured to be a part of this.


Tasmin Haussen

Physical activity has always been a large part of my life. I spent most of my teenage years running, making me one of Australia’s elite female distance runners. The intense training and impact running had on my body left me with many injuries, leaving me no choice but to have a break. Opening the door to Yoga High has been such a blessing. I love the feel as soon as you walk in the studio; the community, the love and the positive vibes. I’m currently teaching as a reformer pilates instructor, so having the opportunity to be part of Yoga High as a HOT HITT PILATES teacher is amazing. I love pilates because it’s low impact but you still leave feeling satisfied from an intense workout. Yoga High has not only helped me physically but also mentally. I can’t wait to see your smiling face in studio and share all the love and high vibes with you.
