The Teaching Team

Conny Clemente started her yoga journey in 1999. Her first Hatha yoga class was in Sydney in a big hall as a backpacker. No idea what the teacher on the stage was saying, she followed the energy and postures of all the people who where present… a somewhat overwhelming experience!

Back home in Germany, Conny spent some time practicing Kundalini yoga however, it wasn’t until she was traveling again and had the opportunity to practice yoga in Mexico that she found a deep connection to the asanas (yoga postures). Conny returned to Australia in 2005 and it was here that her true yoga journey began with gifted yoga teacher and friend, Tina-Marie.

Conny was inspired to completed 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Sacred Valley, Peru.

She truly found her passion in Vinyasa Yoga at Cosmic Yoga Studio in Adelaide, and has undertaken a number study courses with internationally revered teachers such as Simon Borg-Olivier, Tara Judelle and Jennifer Creszenko.

Conny has had the privilege of working as Massage Therapist for the Adelaide Crows, as a Yoga Teacher at Cosmic Yoga Studio, and now has her own yoga and massage therapy business; Ananda Yoga & Massage. As well as teaching yoga classes at True North Yoga, Conny also provides Relaxation Massage, Remedial Massage, Sports Massage and Cupping at True North Yoga one day per week.

Conny guides a beautiful strong, healing and invigorating yoga practice taught from the heart. Her love for the practice and passion for giving back to the community are tangible and inspiring.

Tanya Bingham has had an interest in wellbeing since her early 20’s which culminated in a dedicated yoga practice over 11 years ago.

Tanya loves yoga for its capacity to build strength and flexibility (on all levels!) but it is the call to calm, center, shift perspective and set or re-set the day that underpins Tanya’s yoga practice.

Tanya has completed over 875hrs of certified yoga teacher training including 500hrs-RYT, Pre-Post Natal Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Psychology & Meditation, including two trips to India for concentrated study and practice. Tanya has also managed and assisted yoga teacher trainings with teacher training school, Shantarasa Yoga, as well as educational workshops, retreats and events.

Prior to yoga, Tanya’s professional background spanned over a decade in injury management and as a rehabilitation consultant, and she is currently studying a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutrition & Exercise).

Tanya is Founder and one of the team of teachers at True North Yoga Studio. This inspiring space for practice and sangha (community) is something she is grateful for everyday.

Jasmine Hornby teaches to provide individuals with a greater sense of self, moving back into their bodies and bringing the mind, body and breath back into union. She teaches to not just help the physical but the mental and emotional. Jasmine loves people leaving classes feeling recharged and calm. Her practice has helped her to grow stronger both on and off the mat, and serves as a daily reminder to live each moment more mindfully.

Jasmine loves yoga, big walks, cooking, reading and writing. She loves being creative and expressing herself. Jasmine loves catching up with loved ones and learning more about herself and the world around her.

Louise Cummings has a passion to help people heal both physically and internally through the power of yoga. She believes that yoga allows us to be fully present instead of thinking about the past or anticipating the future! Her belief is that yoga has the ability to release any emotional tension stored in the body which is why she believes it has such a healing benefit.

Louise loves beach walks, Aromatherapy, surfing, camping & catching up for coffees with friends.

Her style of teaching is more of a slower approach making sure people are moving in and out of postures mindfully whilst still connecting to the breath! Her aim through teaching is to make people feel a sense of peace and self-love! As well as building strength and flexibility. To Louise yoga is a work IN not a work OUT, she believes we practice yoga to find our true authentic self.

She completed a 200hr Vinyasa / Yin Yoga Teacher Training at the Yoga Barn in Bali 2016, leaving her to feel the need to spread the beautiful power of love, light and yoga to the community! She has taught at ‘The Daily Bend and Mend’, Riverdell Spiritual Center and Genesis Gym. She is beyond excited to teach at True North Yoga 🙂
