Part Three An interview with Fiona Edelstein
Fiona Edelstein hosts a radio show called Simply Wellbeing on 87.8FM. Mondays between 5-7pm. She is an author, speaker, healer and one of the most creative, qualified and dedicated Yoga teachers in Melbourne today.
“I am 55 years old. Yoga has been part of my life for over 27 years.
I was not a yoga body when I began and I promised myself I will always carry a strong memory of what it was like to be tight and uncomfortable.
Right now I am continuing my small classes at the Moroccan Lounge in Prahran and Workshops at the beautiful Lyall Hotel in South Yarra. My latest Venture is Yoga for the Masses.
I have taken a larger space in the St Joseph’s Parish Hall in Malvern and halved prices so I can bring an accessible form of yoga to as many people as possible. It is very exciting. 🙂
With over 35,000 hours of classes, workshop and private sessions under her belt, Fiona completed teacher training at the world renowned YOGA WORKS in Santa Monica California. She was featured teaching her own synergy of yoga and chi gung on HSV7′s Go For Your Life! She has taught corporate workshops, one on one and teaches teenagers and kids in schools.
She has long felt everyone deserves the benefits of yoga to the way to make it more accessible was to make it simple. .
She uses movement, breathing and focus of mind to help people get comfortable and balanced in their bodies. Her gift is making things simple. Her voice takes you on a journey. She uses practical tools that gently spill over into your life and creates an awareness of your body, that will stay with you.
” My teaching has gone in its own direction due to my focus on beginners and using yoga as tool to deal with stress and have an amazing life.
Along the way some excellent teachers have taught and influenced me. I would like to thank Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, Eddie Modestini, Erich Schiffman, Steve Ross, Rocki Graham, Leslie Bogart, Daniel Weber, Dolf Roder, Takao, Shiva Rae, Jasmine Leib, Gary Kraftsow, Eric Pearl, Jenni Mears and Stephanie Phillips. I am grateful to every gorgeous student who gave me the opportunity to practice. I am grateful to every one of my teachers.”
I believe that no one is more of an expert on you than you.
I am frustrated that too many practitioners on both the western and alternative medicine create customers by not educating their clients. They have become businesses and forgotten to be healers.
I am inspired and passionate about empowering people to trust themselves and take back their power ….over their own bodies and minds.
