Russ is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and has been practising yoga for more than 25 years.

Unlike many students who start yoga in a studio, Russ' reasons were more intrinsic and home-practiced based. He became interested in yoga as a teenager, and taught himself postures out of a book as a way of managing severe pain associated with the imbalances caused by scoliosis. This set him on a path in the health & fitness industry, first as a massage therapist, then later a Degree in Exercise Physiology.

He is a part time guest teacher for the Graduate School of Medicine at the University of Wollongong, where he teaches Anatomy to doctors in training.

Russ has a keen background in biomechanics & functional anatomy and uses this unique knowledge in conjunction with mindfullness techniques to treat patients with a range of injuries and mental health conditions.

Russ' initially trained with a traditional school - The Sivananda School of Yoga in Kerala, India, and like Deb has since completed various teacher trainings with Internationally acclaimed teachers in a range of styles.
