Mirella ParryPosition Profile
Dedicated to physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, I have been on the path of yoga and personal transformation for 24 years. I have played the roles of student, yoga therapist, body worker and retreat facilitator. My greatest learning curve came after a car accident in 1993, leaving me feeling physically and emotionally helpless and unable to pursue my beloved yoga practice. During my recovery, I discovered the rehabilitative power of pilates, and their role in allowing me to safely resume yoga. I developed a more profound sense of compassion for individual differences and realized the importance of nurturing the unique differences in each individual. My training continued with wonderful teachers and yoga therapists in India, Australia and the USA, who continually motivate and inspire me. I love working with a variety of people of different ages, ability and background. Recently, I have began teaching children and teens.
