Testimonials

Dear Fiona, thank you for last night’s yoga session. Having come from one on Monday night where we were told ‘you’re not flowers, you’re warriors, I’m going to make sure you leave one’ – which, was effective on some levels – it was really lovely to feel you tap in to the energy of the room, recognise some tiredness, and take us all on a loving journey to awaken our very cores. The reading was spot on too. I’ve been a perfectionist far too long!! Living the energy for as long as I can, until next time xx Jana Wilkes.

Re One on one coaching

Fiona has only recently come into my life. She is a truly gifted teacher who is passionate about yoga and committed to her students’ wellbeing. She is caring empathetic helpful intuitive and a very good listener.
She utilises various yoga disciplines and also incorporates her knowledge of pilates and then tailors them according to the student’s ability.
I have two private lessons with her a week and both she and the classes are addictive.
My husband often joins in and he really looks forward to the Saturday class!!
Debra Stiebel Caulfield

Fiona’s classes are amazing ~ she makes sure you are working at your level and is a wonderfully generous teacher ~ come & check it out ~ you are warmly welcomed into a friendly nurturing space – I have participated in the Tuesday stretch class & Thursday beginner and both were fantastic.

Re distance healing.


I have NEVER had such a physical response with yoga and meditation, then the healing blew me away – NO words to describe it!!!!
I experienced a huge reduction in pain I have from injuries. I WISH I could see Fiona daily!!
Fiona is highly competent, professional and emotionally intelligent. She uses her intuition to realise when and how someone needs help and support!!

Re one one one sessions.


Wow – what can I say Fiona except for thank you! I just loved, and felt privileged to be a part of your very first Heart Radiant Women’s Circle. This was like no other group I had attended and was exactly what I needed to recharge and do something for me.
Fiona you are a natural facilitator and have a way of creating a safe and nurturing space that also empowers the individual. The way you led us all on the journey of unfoldment and connecting back to the heart felt effortless and natural. Nothing was forced. I left feeling centred, connected, empowered and happy – ready to tackle the week in a way that I never expected. I can’t wait for my next group and to reconnect with the beautiful women that I met there. -Fiona’s Women’s circles.
With love,
Aaryn


 

 Fiona set the scene for a very comfortable relaxed atmosphere which opened up magnificent opportunities for relaxation. Fiona’s guided meditations were easy to follow and created space for energy to flow within the mind, body & spirit.    Daniella Hogarth

 ” I love the way in which Fiona makes things that I’d previously perceived as difficult and an effort…so simple. She makes space for experimentation with our own bodies and minds through energy work, meditation and yoga and allows me to feel as though there are no wrong answers which is ‘so liberating’. Her calming presence and light radiance are shared with those who are lucky enough to participate in one of her workshops. Thank you so much!!!! I am feeling more energised and peaceful now..at the same time.    Linda Leaf


Hi my name is Virginia Torres I live in Hemet Ca. USA. if you are on this page or know this incredible woman than this will only validate what you already know. I’m writing this to share with the world how Fiona’s wonderful light has shined on my life. The Universe is a magnificent thing it always send us what we need unknowingly of course unless we pay attention… I’m not sure how I was so fortunate for our paths to cross it’s been a little over two yrs. now & I want to Thank Fiona Who has helped me from across the world. NOW that’s some Amazing Energy. That was the beginning of a Fantastic Connection.
Recently I was in the hospital & I saw a post by Fiona about a healing class & I posted I wish I could be there I really needed it about now. Fiona sent me a private message asking how I was doing. It was long & complicated but she told me she could HELP if I was willing so I accepted her offer. That night Fiona sent me Healing, I was receptive & so we started. The next day I was a lot better I have to say I was surprised at the difference. It’s very complicated my blood oxygen was 87 & it is suppose to be 90 at lowest, My oxygen Sat. 86 to 90 which should 95-100 that next morning my oxygen Sat levels went up to 98 & I was feeling much better. So she raised the Healing Energy.
In the last year between her Yoga, Fiona’s Healing ways & Her Talk show with her Sister Simply Wellbeing. She has helped me change my live.
I told my friend & she was amazed at the change, so she asked if Fiona could help her. Fiona sent her Healing & from the next day my friend has done better everyday & she continues to… Fiona was great & continued to help. I honestly believe if not for her Healing hand, I may not have made it through.
I had made the comment to Fiona about how Amazing she was & she reminded me of something I had lost with all the drugs I was being given, that was my inner strength, higher self or inner healer. However you look at it, it was there I just needed to tap into it. Fiona is right it’s there within all of us but she is great at teach people & reminding us that it is there for us if only we stay focused. I wish I lived locally so to do yoga with her. But I will make my way there next yr. I’ll start a little yoga now so I can absorb all she has to offer. Thanks Again Fiona.

 Testimony for Fiona Edelstein

From day one Fiona made me feel like I had stepped into a new and positive realm in my life. I knew I had come to the right person to guide and teach me the art of relaxation, meditation and the practice of Yoga. Fiona’s approach is personable and engaging, and I believe the benefits are certainly in approaching the journey in one on one sessions especially so in the early stages of the teachings. Fiona’s obvious experience in a varying teaching methods and practices places her in the position of being able to tailor your sessions, and give you the necessary tools that allow you to reach your personal goals leading you to the present and the future of your life’s paths.
Amber Sparkes


 Can’t wait to attend this workshop! Here is my testimonial re my work thus far with Fiona, can’t recommend her enough!: “Fiona is an incredibly compassionate and giving soul who has an amazing ability to see right through to the core of you and who is not afraid to call you on your stuff! She is so intuitive when it comes to what you need to do to heal both your body and soul and I can’t wait to do more individual and yoga work with her in the future!”


 

Hello Fiona, I’m really blessed by the opportunity to work with wonderful You. You’re a healer, friend, teacher, therapist, yoga instructor and coach all in one. I’m left in ore at the depth of your knowledge of life as we know it but also what else there is to experience. I found your strength and guidance in your yoga class all encompassing of the mind body and spirit, yet addressed all members of the class at their own personal level. Your intuitive healing methods quickly identify the core and gently shift the pain to health and wellness. I am grateful for the self-awareness and light heart that follows after our work together. Thank You a million times, Daniella Hogarth, Wellness Consultant and Integrated Healer – Wellness On Wheels


 

 “Fiona is an intuitive and gifted body worker who lovingly shares her knowledge and experience of wellness in the “real -world” of stress, time-pressure and other imperatives, always for the support and betterment of her clients and associates. She is a true friend to many and an inspiration to all.”

Sarah Taylor 


 Fiona is very professional in her approach and I have enjoyed the yoga lesson tremendously. For someone like me that has never done yoga, she is encouraging and a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable and positive.

The Peace Workshops-   I have always been very tightly wound and a massive day dreamer, plus for quite a while (5 years or so) a major depression sufferer.I have found in only the first three classes, I am thinking more clearly, I get up and do not lounge on the couch after a tough day (giving more time to enjoy my boys company). I no longer dwell on the past or the concerns that may or may not rise in the future; in short, I can distinguish what matters and how to deal with it. I chill out, I know how to have 15 minutes for myself and refresh. (In addition, the depression has had a massive improvement; medication has been significantly reduced in only 3 weeks) 

– Michael F


Fiona’s dynamic Yoga class at Flavours of Yoga is simply fabulous! Fiona makes it an accessible, fun and informative class to all with gentle, precise and knowledgeable guidance. And that’s only the ‘Yoga’. After only one class I found a greater clarity awareness and understanding in my ability to align myself. I had insight into way I held my body, my posture and movement. Fiona is very generous with her expertise and knowledge. The meditation is pure bliss!!!!!

– Kristy


 

Fiona is an inspired yoga instructor and very in tune with meeting the individual needs of class participants. The stretches are presented in such an approachable manner and there is an immediate benefit and sense of improved wellbeing.

– Jan


I love going to yoga at Flavours of Yoga as the classes are always fun, positive, and you don’t feel bad doing things at your own pace. Fiona is helpful and knowledgeable, and has vast experience in teaching yoga and dealing with any kind of physical restrictions you may have.

– Caryl


I have been doing Fiona’s yoga class for at least 4 years now and always feel so grounded and less tense after my class. Fiona is so informative about yoga and is full of advice regarding health, mind and body. I highly recommend trying a class at Flavours of Yoga.

Caroline Nicolas


 Arriving for my first class, (when always a little nervous about what to expect!) I found a wonderful warm, friendly welcome and relaxed, inclusive atmosphere all around. Just perfect.

Mary Ward


 

Thank you Fiona! You have a natural ability to know exactly what needs working on. It must be your amazing intuition and healing talents. I always feel so relaxed and unstressed when I leave your sessions. I hate missing one! Thanks              

Gwen Allen


 

Over the past two years my once a week class has improved my flexabilty and balance. 

John D


 

I think I’ve been coming for once a week for almost a  year. My results are that I am more flexible, have fewer aches and pains and that I am getting better at handling stress.   

Fleur


 

I think I’ve been coming for nearly 2 years and I’m very happy with the results.  I have learnt to notice and observe my posture and breathing and I know what adjustments need to be made to correct them on a day to day basis away from the classes.  I have noticed an increased level of calm and I’ve realised peace and happiness is something that comes from within me and not from anybody else.  I would say it doesn’t take me as long to relax and to focus on being in the moment.              

Michelle Harvey


I had been coming to class for about two years. I found the physical stretching aspects of Fiona style yoga to be relaxing and beneficial for posture and injury prevention. I also learned a lot about meditation from Fiona and it’s helped enormously in helping me focus and calm down and reduce overall anxiety. The benefits of meditation extends to every aspect of my life and I would attribute my increased ability to resolve arguments constructively with my spouse to the focus and calm that was learned through meditation at Fiona’s sleep workshop. I also find that meditation techniques help reduce my anxiety before giving talks in front of an audience in my professional life.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Overall going to Flavours of Yoga and learning yoga from Fiona’s been one of the best things I’ve ever done.  Unfortunately I’m very time constrained at the moment and can’t make the usual Saturday morning class that I went to once a week for over a year. I have learned enough from Fiona to practice constructively at home on my own – though it’s not the same. Having tried a number of different yoga teachers, I find that I actually quite dislike almost every other teacher I’ve come into contact with. There’s a certain level of comfort, freedom and lack of pretentiousness that makes me feel both welcome and like I’m learning something beneficial from an actual teacher in Fiona’s classes that I haven’t found with any other yoga teacher. I think it helps that she explains so much of what we’re doing and why we’re doing it and how it’s supposed to feel rather than just following a script because that’s the way someone said it should be. I also like the setup of the Flavours of Yoga studio and the main class room there has a good vibe for yoga.                    

Yin Shu  


I have been attending Fiona’s classes for a few years now and I absolutely love it…it is my hour of bliss for the week…and we all need it!! I love her flow class & I feel great after moving parts of my body which don’t get moved other times of the week. The 15 minutes relaxation is absolutely blissful. Fiona does a great relaxation session & you really do walk away with a calmer mind & body. And let’s face it; we all need some bliss in our busy lives!

Fiona S


 I recently participated in Fiona’s peace workshop and found it incredible. I have done yoga before and wasn’t expecting it to be much different. However I quickly noticed that Fiona’s classes are a lot more then getting good a stretching and poses with some meditation at the end. She offers invaluable advice on all aspects of yoga and gives examples of why and how it can be effective in everyday life. I particularly liked the animal analogies and remembering we are part of the animal kingdom (although we forget a lot of the time due to our Western up-bringing). I would recommend her workshops for anyone who has, or hasn’t practiced yoga before. Simply being aware of our body, posture, and breathing should be part of our everyday life.

Frank P


 “I have been enjoying Fiona’s yoga classes for about 8 years and one of the most impressive things is that Fiona is always adapting and changing what she does, according to how she interprets how we are feeling (which is extremely accurate) and from anything new that she has experienced. So I always know that I will never be bored with repetition. If I miss a week my body sorely regrets it. Fiona does not do one type of yoga, she combines a mixture of many disciplines which makes it much more interesting and rewarding. Fiona has enabled me to cope with many personal experiences through her vast knowledge of techniques to assist with stress relief and being calm within oneself.”

Gwen Allen 


 To whom it may concern,
I have been regularly attending yoga classes with Fiona Edelstein for a couple of years now. Fiona is a wonderful teacher who is committed to her students and always reliable. She is constantly changing and adapting her practice to meet the needs of her students. 
I look forward to practising yoga with Fiona in the years to come.”

Jaime Newett


Fiona is an inspired yoga instructor and very in tune with meeting the individual needs of class participants. The stretches are presented in such an approachable manner and there is an immediate benefit and sense of improved wellbeing.

Jan


 Fiona’s approach is truly holistic; she not only offers amazing yoga workshops but also goes out of her way to find uplifting personalised information to help treat the whole person. I am a busy single mum with two older teenage daughters, one at Uni and the other doing her final years at school who is seriously chronically ill. My private yoga sessions with Fiona have been so re-balancing and brought to me a sense of inner peacefulness. She gave me a routine at my own level that I can easily practice at home. Fiona also travelled to our farm and conducted a workshop for my ill daughter to feel the gentle health benefits of Fiona’s yoga. The guided meditation was my daughter’s favourite part of the class.

Jane Whitelock


 “Fiona Edelstein has been instructing me in yoga over the past year. I had not tried yoga previously and have found her approach to be very thorough and helpful. Fiona has great knowledge of various yoga practises and has been able to tailor a programme very well to meet my specific needs.
Fiona’s manner and approach makes yoga fun and enjoyable and the health benefits have been fantastic.
I have found Fiona to be very professional and reliable and to have a great knowledge in her field.
I would have no hesitation recommending Fiona to assist any business in improving the well being of their staff.”

Jason Dowd Managing Director Mitch Dowd Designs


 

I have been coming for 6 months once a week. These classes have given me increased flexibility, no more creaks and groans and body awareness.

Phil  H


Since starting yoga with Fiona six years ago, not only have I become physically stronger, more flexible and increased my general fitness but both body and mind are relaxed and balanced.
Through Fiona’s teachings I have learnt to take a positive outlook on life.
Over the years I had tried other yoga studios before discovering ‘Flavours Of Yoga’.
I have found that working with Fiona is a fulfilling yet challenging experience. I have found my niche and will now never be going anywhere else!
I always leave Fiona’s class with a skip in my step and happy outlook on the day ahead.”

Kate Nicolas


  Fiona’s hypnotic voice is guaranteed to melt away any stress and anxiety you carry into the room and truly makes you feel like you are the most special person she’s ever met when you leave. A visit to Flavours of Yoga should be a compulsory daily ritual-the world would be a much kinder place to live in if it were!

Kim Sacco


 

 Fiona’s Flow Yoga class at Flavours of Yoga is simply fabulous! Fiona makes it an accessible, fun and informative class to all with gentle, precise and knowledgeable guidance. And that’s only the ‘Yoga’. After only one class I found a greater clarity awareness and understanding in my ability to align myself. I had insight into way I held my body, my posture and movement. Fiona is very generous with her expertise and knowledge. The meditation is pure bliss!!!!!

Kristy


 I was surprised to feel the so incredibly good from the very first class. Fiona talked about awareness…and that is what I walked away with. An awareness of what I had been doing to make myself so uncomfortable and a sense of relaxation that I don’t remember feeling before. After that things just got better! My golf has improved and is more enjoyable! I do not carrying around stress in my muscles or my mind anymore. I feel a quiet inner calmness and confidence. Fiona is inspirational in her knowledge, teaching, enthusiasm and genuine interest in the wellbeing of her clients. I highly recommend Fiona’s approach to yoga.”

Leurelle Miller


This is the best yoga class in Melbourne. Fiona is a very knowledgeable and conscientious instructor. The classes are as intense or as gentle as you need them at your personal yoga level. The studio is beautiful and in a great location in Armadale!

Lilianna


 Fiona’s classes at Flavours of Yoga are simply amazing. Aside from providing a diverse yoga and stretching experience, Fiona helps you find the key to balancing your body, mind and spirit. The relaxation sessions at the end of class are the icing on the cake. My husband also enjoys his weekly sessions and never fails to mention how much better he feels after class. Being more flexible and relaxed in the world is a wonderful thing.

Lisa


 “Before doing yoga with Fiona.I had to chase my foot around in the morning to get my sock on. The stretching exercises have improved my posture and I don’t get back aches at work. I have learnt techniques to release neck and shoulder tension after a stressful day, and breathing techniques have improved my public speaking. I noticed the effects after the first two lessons and things have continued to improve. I still have a long way to go before I am as flexible as the rest of the class however Fiona creates an environment where your ability is not an issue.”

Mathew Henley

 I have been going to Fiona’s Yoga classes for years and I’d be lost without her to help me keep balance in my happy but hectic life full of kids and work. The flow class rocks and Fiona’s 15 minute meditation is a holiday for my mind.

Nerinda Mc Mullin


 I recently attended the Peace Workshop at Flavours of Yoga. I had never done yoga before, but do meditate regularly, and have been diagnosed with a number of chronic sleep problems. It was great to try so many different forms of meditation and breathing, and I also particularly enjoyed learning the stretches to get my body loosened up after sitting in front of a computer all day. After the third workshop I can honestly say I went home and had the best night’s sleep I’ve had in memory, it was wonderful. I now regularly use the stretches, as well as a couple of the breathing and relaxation techniques. – thanks Fiona!

Sam Minich


 “I am a PT and strength and conditioning coach. I referred a golf client of mine to do yoga, Leurelle M. I saw her yesterday and I saw a definite change in her posture and movement. I attribute this to the fact that she has commenced with yoga. I have encouraged her to continue indefinitely as the benefits to her have been incredible. 
Thank you, She loves your classes.
Health and Regards”

Selwyn Becker


 I have been attending Fiona’s yoga classes for many years. I always look forward to this class. Fiona is so dedicated to her work and only wants what is best for her students…She is always reading and learning so as to bring a new dimension to her classes……. I find that Tuesday morning is a time of letting go of “all life’s trivialities”. Fiona seems to rebalance me and always reminds us of what really matters in life! Great work Fiona. We all love you…

Solonge 


 

 Fiona at Flavours at Yoga provides great classes that provide noticeable help with posture and flexibility. I would recommend her classes to anyone. Also a great location and setup.

Tim


 Fiona is very professional in her approach and I have enjoyed the yoga lesson tremendously. For someone like me that has never done yoga, she is encouraging and a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable and positive.

Fiona’s yoga sessions are so amazingly holistic – she shares purpose in every movement, brings calmness and peace, strength and relief, heart and soul to all her classes. I love how down to earth she is and how her sessions are never just exercise classes, you could be part of a weight class, chiro, physio, doctor, naturopath, tai chi and meditation session all rolled into one! She makes her class fun and relevant to both men and women, which is so great since there seems to be a bias in yoga classes toward women (even though yoga was only allowed to be practiced by men in India, before it became Westernised!) I love the spontaneity of her classes and how well she runs them – she tailors the class to the people in it and what they need from it 🙂 It’s awesome!! Thanks Fiona, you are the definitely one of the few excellent yoga teachers out there!!

Cynthia Tham


 The most important thing that yoga has given to my running is the ability to notice and be aware of how I feel when running. A perfect example is this morning when I felt tightness in my right calf near then end of the run. After paying attention to the pain I became aware that the whole leg had become tense – not just the calf. I focussed on relaxing the whole leg and the calf eased, which then re-balanced my running posture. In the past I would have tried to take the weight off it (limping almost), which would have left me imbalanced. I’ve found that through learning how to be aware of my body, I can address problems in mid-run and prevent injury – the pain always goes when I relax and get my posture right!  

Duncan Ackerly 


 I have been doing Fiona’s yoga class for at least 4 years now and always feel so grounded and less tense after my class. Fiona is so informative about yoga and is full of advice regarding health, mind and body. I highly recommend trying a class at Flavours of Yoga.      Sarah 


 Fiona’s stretch classes are enjoyed in a relaxed and welcoming environment, regardless of age or flexibility, and in them she makes use of a wonderful combination of techniques – including from yoga, qigong and meditation. Fiona has a special skill in being able to teach us how to focus on our bodies in a beneficial way, and she is also able to address an individual’s needs within the whole class environment. Starting classes with Fiona has been the best thing I have done in a long time and I walk home with a relaxed mind and a lightness and energy in a body that feels alive and confident.            

Mary Ward


 

 Fiona’s unique classes mixing yoga, stretch and relaxation has become an essential part of my week. Her classes guide you along a path to increased flexibility, balance and posture awareness, providing mental time out in a friendly, welcoming and supportive group environment. Fiona is an observant and skilled teacher providing individual guidance in a class setting.          

Phil


 Thanks Fiona for your enjoyable and relaxing  classes. Rather than having set classes,you adapt sessions to cater for the needs of the group. It is also a comfort that even in a group you are watching and correcting class participants in a friendly and nonjudgemental way. Yoga allows me to escape from the normal stresses of life as well as to stretch and move!    

Nancy


 TEEN YOGA   – Teenage yoga classes with Fiona have allowed me to de-stress and to achieve my goals of improving my posture as well as flexibility. At the beginning of each class, Fiona will always ask whether any members of the class have any injuries or areas that we would like to focus on. This allows the class to feel as if we are being watched over and that we have an input. My friends and I are always excited for our weekly yoga sessions and I am looking forward to continuing in the future.
Abby

STRETCH                                              Flavours of Yoga is the perfect place to de-stress.  My husband and I thoroughly enjoy Fiona’s gentle stretch class because it helps us keep limber, relaxed and rejuvenated.  And because we learn to notice how we feel, we can bring awareness to the things we are doing outside of class that make us feel uncomfortable.  Her two minute videos on YouTube are a great ‘top up’ between classes.  Fiona, your experience and wisdom speak volumes and have made you an exceptional teacher.  What we have learned from you over the years has been very valuable to us both.

 Lisa and Trevor Hughes

 By attending Fiona’s yoga classes, I have gained more flexability, a stronger and more erect posture and a happier 65 year old body and mind. Fiona is an inspiring teacher and she responds to her students individual needs. I always leave a yoga class with a smile on my face and a spring in my step. My body is relaxed and my mind content. Any stress has lifted. Fiona has helped me to  attain this state of being and  to take this wellbeing into my everyday life. Many thanks Fiona.

Leurelle Miller


Fiona’s environment is unique. Her combination of skills from yoga, stretching, meditation, breathing  and Qigong  are mixed together with her enthusiasm to create an hour of delight.  These combined skills make a session with Fiona a virtual one-stop-shop to tap into some of the east’s ancient forms of healthy living. What is more, she doesn’t just talk the words, she lives it and, of course, breathes it.     

Brad  Beitzel


  Thank you so much for the life lessons you taught me last night! I wasn’t expecting to learn so much in such a short period of time. You were great at explaining in a way that I understand! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!      

Karen  Eby


Flavours of Yoga is a haven from this crazy world – a place where you can energize and restore your body, mind and spirit. If you’re in the mood for a strong and focussed ‘flow’ class or a deep, expanding ‘stretch’ class, Fiona brings you along at your own pace and you never feel out of your depth. The more regularly I attend, the better I feel and now my husband is an avid fan, too. Thanks, Fiona, you are truly gifted at what you do.          

Lisa H


 Fiona is nothing short of exceptional. Immediately you feel calmer and incredibly comfortable in her presence. She brings passion to her classes and a smile to your face as she guides you through her unique and very accessible approach to yoga, meditation and living.              

Rebecca Law  Nourish 


 I love going to yoga at Flavours of Yoga as the classes are always fun, positive, and you don’t feel bad doing things at your own pace. Fiona is helpful and knowledgeable, and has vast experience in teaching yoga and dealing with any kind of physical restrictions you may have.  

Debbie 


 Fiona is of high integrity and runs a wonderful yoga studio specialising in special needs wishing always to give confidence, enhancing mobility and flexibility. Her classes of relaxation are divine and provide provision for deeper sleep and a calmer state of mind. I have personally experience Fiona’s yoga classes and highly recommend her teaching abilities which are quite transformative. Thank you Fiona, you are a gem.  

 Rosemary Warmsley Naturopath and raw food coach. 


Fiona is an insightful practioner, who works with you to in a fun, interactive and engaging way, maximising learning and growth.  🙂                                                Belinda Bardas Wellbeing lifestyle educator at Happy Healthy and Harmonious

 I’d highly recommend Fiona she is an awesome teacher who goes that extra mile for her students. Her passion and depth of knowledge is commendable.            Donna Fowler  Business owner at  Warburton Wellbeing.


 Fiona is a brilliant  Teacher.  Her gentle, sensitive approach is highly motivating for the ‘proper bodies’ she designs her classes for. You don’t have to be able to touch your toes or be a ‘skinny mini’…your well being, confidence in yourself and stretchability will improve no matter what your goals.

 PEACE WORKSHOP                                              I had a very peaceful weekend at your Peace Workshop. It was lovely to get off the crazy treadmill (of life) and give myself permission to be still and replenish…in your beautiful studio space. I learned some wonderful tools to relieve everyday stress and to help me sleep. I enjoyed learning some delicious yoga poses and different ways of meditating. You made it easy. Thank you so much.        Jenny Goldsmith



  Hi Fiona, I have to say U have some Great ideas & lots of good knowledge I have literally only been getting about 1 1/2 -2 1/2 hrs of sleep a night all the good Amazon Herbs & TriVita Products are working on my recovery but not much success with my Sleep but after reading your post I tried it last night I slept 5 1/2 hrs. Almost a record 4 me thanks so much I wish I was closer I would come do yoga with you not much of that near where I live but I am following you on YouTube & you have helped me a lot Thanks again Love…

Virginia Torres


  I have been attending Fiona’s classes once a week for over 5 years…and absolutely love them! I find the feeling of release from tension throughout the body amazing. At the end of each class the sense of calmness in my mind is like no other and I often leave class thinking ‘wow, that really was just what I needed!’ Fiona’s classes have also taught me many poses and stretches which I can practice at home in between weekly classes to remain comfortable and help my niggles 🙂       Fiona Stanley


   After dealing with anxiety and panic attacks for many years I finally thought I had it under control…. until I was 2 thirds of the way into my first pregnancy when it all came flooding back again. I tried a myriad of techniques which weren’t helping, so as a last resort I decided to give Fiona a call. To my surprise the results were remarkable. After 1 private session which included a short  healing I was in a markedly better place. Not only had the debilitating panic attacks subsided, but when they did arise I was able to handle them so they were not as disruptive to my daily life. My Chiropractor even remarked on how my stomach had self corrected its position. (It’s so easy for organs to go astray when you have a little one pushing everything out of place!) I now take regular pre-natal classes with Flavour of Yoga on a Monday night.  Thanks so much Fiona. Thanks for making everyday life easier to handle. Thanks for the beautiful healing that took place on that magical table and for helping me get through one of the most stressful times in my life. I would definitely recommend Flavours of Yoga again .

  The space is magical. It’s like stepping inside another world of tranquility and presence. I was blessed to receive a delicious day of playing with meditation and gentle movement yesterday during the Peace workshop. I learned about lots ofuseful ideas that will help me create a systematic routine that will allow me to make time to rejuvenate myself appropriately to improve the quality of my sleep and overall wellbeing. Thank you so much Fiona! xoxoxo

 Fiona’s Peace Workshop was a real turning point in my life. The course not only helped me feel more relaxed, calm and centred, but gave me the tools to live like this on a daily basis. I now also do Yoga with Fiona one to two times a week (would go more if I could!) and I would never go back to life without it!   Thanks Fiona

Yoga with Fiona induces a tall light feeling with the grace of effortless movement. She makes yoga (basic) simple and fun rather than the agonising painful and complex activity that some of us remember. The tone and the content of her voice creates an internal reflexion and relaxation. She encourages you to care for your body and clear your mind of unwanted agitation. Fiona has helped me personally and opened up holistic treatment options for me to share with my patients in general practice. She is an inspiring teacher.”  Dr Andrew  Ramsay  GP Coolaroo clinic 


 Rudi and I really enjoyed the weekend…We highly recommend Fiona’s Peace Workshops. The workshops are suitable for absolutely anybody, no matter what age or gender or (even) religious denomination because they address all of the aspects of stress and anxiety through integrated and well planned sequences of yoga, meditation and chi gung. Fiona brings all of her experience and profound knowledge of these practices, and more, to the workshops. She teaches practical and simple relaxation techniques that create awareness, and reduce stress in our lives to bring back a sense of self, thus identifying and harnessing our own power from within.

Benefits are felt immediately and resonate for a long time after the workshops. We enjoyed this very special weekend with Fiona immensely! Thank you Fiona,

Annette and Rudi


 My sleep after Sunday’s class was amazing! You are re- inspiring my interest in yoga again. In the past I have only met teachers who treat it like exercise with no acknowledgment of its roots. When you talked about how yoga helps prepare the body for sitting in meditation I knew you were different and much wiser! The techniques on the breath and awareness were so pure and taught so beautifully. There are many others like me going through chemotherapy and I agree that this is a very useful way to manage the stress on the body and mind. I can’t wait for the next class!

PEACE WORKSHOP                                                   I am currently attending the Peace Workshop, and after last week’s session I can honestly say that I had the best night’s sleep in my adult life! I’ve been a chronic insomniac since adolescence, and have seen every specialist and tried every trick in the book to manage it. But last week I came home, fell into bed and slept deeply and peacefully until the next morning, when I felt like I could sleep through the whole day too! Thanks Fiona xx  Sam


Fiona’s yoga sessions are so amazingly holistic – she shares purpose in every movement, brings calmness and peace, strength and relief, heart and soul to all her classes. I love how down to earth she is and how her sessions are never just exercise classes…She makes her class fun and relevant to both men and women… I love the spontaneity of her classes and how well she runs them – she tailors the class to the people in it and what they need from it 🙂 It’s awesome!! Thanks Fiona, you are the definitely one of the few excellent yoga teachers out there!!

   Having met Fiona online through Facebook I have been astounded by her open personality and like minded thinking, it was however an incredible experience just before Xmas when I was once again crippled by the recurrence of back pain that Fiona came to my rescue, we were discussing her recent detox and cleanse that she was near completion and I mentioned that I needed to do that along with develop a more functional exercise program but with my back issues it made it difficult. I have damage to my vertebrae from L2-L5 basically my lumbar spine which renders me immobile at least 10 times a year. Fiona then offered to do a Distance Healing session which I have had a few times before and was more than happy to try again. As I was at the computer and unable to lie on the floor Fiona just advised that I get comfortable where I was and she would go from there, so I stayed sitting and 10 minutes later felt fuzzy but at ease and at peace in what had been a rather tumultuous week. Now normally I would have spent 4-7 days in pain swallowing codeine ever night and having hot showers morning and night to keep mobile which is no small feat with two young children, but after Fiona’s healing session although I had a background niggle I required no pain relief and could function which was incredible. I would recommend 

Fiona to anyone that is interested in trying this treatment she has a wonderful kindred soul and that is what our world needs. Thank you again Fiona, Regards Monique GriffIth


  I had a session with Fiona a few weeks ago. It’s difficult to describe what I feel so I’ll try a visual.  If my capacity for happiness could be seen as millions of tiny bubbles inside me, during my  Healing session each and every bubble expanded a little, filling spaces, leaving hardly any room for negativity, in thought or emotion. After my session, it seemed that every aspect of my life changed in subtle ways, especially interaction with others. Now, people seem more receptive which helps make everyday conversations and activities run more smoothly.   Also, many seem more giving, or perhaps I have opened up a little more to allow them to be more giving – I’m not sure. I can’t say I know much about  Healing but I feel that what Fiona did that day is permanent, as if the feeling and effect have been integrated into my being. I recommend this without hesitation.

I can highly recommend Fiona as a  teacher and  Healer. While working in her studio I attended many of her yoga classes which were always fantastic. My  healing session with her (and I didn’t even believe in it – BIG skeptic) was the most amazing experience and totally changed some preconceived ideas.   I’d recommend the same for anyone else going to see Fiona, don’t read up, expect, or have a specific outcome in mind – just focus on the present moment , relax your mind, be open, and your experience will be personal, unique and unforgettable.

   Fiona Edelstein is more than a yoga teacher she is a true healer blessed with a rare gift she has been given a gift to see inside the body the spirit the energy flow with such precision she has been able to relieve my  pain.  I am a dentist who had been a long suffering back pain. In what appeared to be a short time without so much as a tweak she carried out a ” healing ” process for me, resulting in me getting up with NO pain ,and a feeling of lightness and colour. I  have never had that feeling before. I  was at first skeptical but am now a believer. Fiona you have a gift and you use it well. I  shall be recommending more of my patients to see you.  A big thank you .

 “I have been attending Fiona’s classes for several years now where her keen desire to enhance well-being fuels her inspiration for teaching mind-body flow. Fiona guides students through a myriad of yoga and Tai Chi postures with ease and grace; which she then caps off with a guided meditation to still the mind. 
She has an uncanny wisdom to hone in on each student’s comfort level, adapt the exercises accordingly, and ensure that you leave the class feeling refreshed and energized. Fiona’s classes are suited to people of all ages; and especially so for those seeking the health-enhancing benefits of mind-body flow.”
