    ABOUT Jacqui Sellers (YA RYT 500Hr)
    Teaching for 15 years with love, dedication and passion for this art, science and philosophy that is yoga. (BKS Iyengar). BYS owner and director of Brisbane YogaSpace, Jacqui is a senior yoga teacher and yoga therapist whose teachings are informed through a balance of modern yoga and functional anatomy with classical yoga philosophy and relevant application of yoga through body,mind and spirit.

    Her teachers and sources of inspiration include Adamji and Maaji Bornstein of Radiant Light Yoga, Jasmine Tarkeshi and Emily Stone of Laughing Lotus USA, Tam James of YogaPhysio and the classical teachings of Swami Sivananda and Swami Vishnu-Devananda. As a counsellor and yoga therapist, Jacqui also has experience in group yoga therapy settings as well as facilitating specialised private yoga therapy, trauma-informed yoga and training yoga graduates since 2014 and most recently has studied with the creator of Trauma Sensitive Yoga, David Emerson of the Trauma Research Justice Centre in Boston in 2018. Jacqui is currently completing her Behavioural Science degree in psychology.


    ABOUT Heather Kinang (YA E-RYT 500)
    Heather is a self-professed yoga nerd. She first stepped onto a yoga mat at university when she was dragged to her first class and floated out the door. Born in Brisbane, a love of travel and adventure soon lured her to SE Asia, India and Nepal where she resided for several years, studying Buddhism and Hinduism – it’s Gods and Goddesses, it’s myths and mantras – from her Kathmandu family.

    Heather’s Yoga Teacher Trainings include –

    2007 – 200 hour Anusara Teacher Training under the guidance of Noah Maze & Sianna Sherman who both continue to mentor her.

    2010 – Julie Smerdon’s Level 1 200 hour Teacher Training in Brisbane

    2014 – Sianna Sherman’s Level 1 200 hour Teacher Training in Los Angeles

    2017/2018 – Noah Maze’s Level 2 300 hour Teacher Training in Brisbane

    2020 – She recently refreshed her skills with Noah Maze’s 2020 Level 1 200 hour teacher training (online).

    Douglas Brooks is her philosophy guru.

    Maty Ezraty & Elena Brower are major influences.

    Her Yin Yoga teachers include Sarah Powers (100 hour teacher training in Los Angeles 2014) and Joe Barnett (50 hour teacher training in Brisbane 2015)

    Heather’s classes are challenging and informative with an emphasis on physical alignment. She believes a consistent yoga practice helps you achieve your highest level of wellbeing, both physically and emotionally, because, as Heather realised after her very first yoga class, the lessons learned on the mat are lessons for life.

    She is a Yoga Teacher Trainer, organises and leads Yoga Treks to Nepal and teaches locally, nationally and internationally.

BYS Teacher Training Testimonials

I undertook my Level 1 yoga teacher training through Brisbane Yoga Space in 2017. The course was challenging at times but so very rewarding. At the time I started, I wasn’t sure what I was hoping to personally gain from the course apart from improving my asana technique. I learnt so much more! I have transformed from a person that was lacking in confidence and suffering anxiety and depression due to a big life change, into a happy, confident and independent person. I know I personally had a lot to do with the change but I’m not sure how quickly it would have occurred without the teacher training. I received a total mind, body and spirit workout. The dedicated team of teachers were wonderful. Jacqui as the main teacher was so kind, caring, helpful and encouraging….I’ve always had a passion for educating children and now I teach kids yoga. It brings so much joy to my life. My full time occupation is in education administration, it’s hard and it’s busy and I love it but the highlight of my week is teaching children the beauty of yoga. Thank you Jacqui and BYS

~ DB, BYS Graduate

Completing my YYT with Jacqui And the BYS team was absolutely wonderful. Jacqui is so knowledgeable, thorough and she deeply cares about all the individuals that undertook the course. I felt well prepared and confident to start teaching yoga because I had such fantastic foundations and mentoring from The BRISBANE Yogaspace YTT.
