Tony has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years. Due to his demanding work in the film industry, and suffering chronic back problems, he took up Yoga to help unwind and find a balance in his life. In 2008 he completed a 200hour Teacher Training with Moksha from Yoga Om, mainly focusing on the Ashtanga and Iyengar styles of yoga. Realising he was still very tight in his pelvic area and hips, Tony with the influence of his chiropractor, decided to learn more about the quite practice of Yin Yoga. Since this discovery, Tony has now studied 550hours in Yin Yoga and Anatomy in Asia and the US with Paul Grilley. He has taken this amazing knowledge, and now teaches Yin Yoga at some of Perth’s most well known Yoga studios. More recently Tony was a Mentor Teacher for students undertaking Jo Phee and Joe Barnett’s 200hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Bali.
Tony is also a practicing Reflexologist and worked for 2 years at the ‘Alternative Medicine Centre’. He worked on people’s feet, and he also did one on one Assisted Yin Yoga sessions with clients to help with their flexibility. He now works from home offering the same services.
Aside from teaching yoga, Tony enjoys music, playing guitar, surfing, cooking and spending time in the garden.
