Philippa Curnow (also known as Pip) made the sea change to the Central Coast from Sydney. After spending some time backpacking overseas, she and her partner knew they were looking for a different lifestyle, rather than heading back to the inner city, she knew she had found a sanctuary and community in this beautiful part of NSW.
Originally from the Hair & Beauty industry Philippa’s personal yoga journey began whilst she was working full time as a hairdresser, suffering with chronic lower back pain and burn out from the lifestyle of work hard, play hard. This physical freedom gained from a regular yoga practice grew to a curiosity to discover the many aspects of yoga for whole mind/body health. Upon returning from Umina Beach Yoga’s Vietnam retreat in 2017, a desire to teach yoga was ignited.
Philippa teaches a variety of practices based on Hatha Yoga principals. She finds this practice the perfect balance of stretch, flow, relaxation and mediation. She has also has qualifications in Yin Yoga, she is fascinated by this quiet and contemplative practice, that works deeply into the fascia that surrounds and intertwines with our muscles. This practice shifts the subtle energy in our body and can have a profound effect on us energetically and transformative for chronic pain.
Recently she has undertaken study in Yoga for Pregnancy, Birth and beyond and is excited to explore and support women through this transformative journey. Philippa has found a greater sense of balance living and teaching yoga on the coast. Her knowledge and experience makes her an intuitive and community minded yogi, who creates a calm and safe environment to explore yoga, to quietly improve your strength, flexibility and mental well being.
