Best teacher ever

I hadn't * ever * contemplated doing anything remotely like aerial yoga until a Facebook friend advertised Kerryn's 'open day' earlier this year and I went along purely out of interest. There I met Kerryn... and WOW. What an awesome, skilled, compassionate, encouraging person she is. This stuff is * light years * away from those crowded yoga classes where you guiltily compile a shopping list in your head during the final relaxation segment... :) This is fun, encouraging, restorative stuff where you build muscle without even realising it, and exhibit unexpected bravery while bathed in the support of a true master. I've signed up for twice as many sessions next term, and count myself lucky to have found this unique person and place.

Incredible Instructor

I was nervous for my class and Kerryn immediately made me feel at ease. I look forward to each and every class and I was able to achieve so much straight away because I felt comfortable! She is clear about safety and manages to make every moment fun and exhilarating! Couldn't recommend this instructor more highly.

Thank you for this wonderful intro to aerial yoga. Has helped me be more confident in what my 50+ body is capable of doing.

A workout for your mind, body and soul!

Kerryn is absolutely lovely. You can sense her warmth from the very first lesson. Her passion and expertise for aerial also shines throughout the whole session and honestly, the minutes fly by with a combination of mindfulness, fitness and just plain enjoyment! A must try!!!

Turned me from a yoga skeptic to a yoga fan

For years people told me I should try yoga to improve my flexibility and core strength. After a bad experience ( it was gently suggested by the instructor that I wasn't experieinced enough for her class) I was introduced to Kerryn at Metta Space. What a difference! Kerryn's warm and enthusiastic personality is matched by her ability to tailor her classes to the individual skill level and experience of her students. I take both her Bespoke Hatha Yoga and Anti-Gravity Yoga classes and have seen a significant improvement in my flexibility in only a few short months. Kerryn's belief that 'everything is possible' is infectious and I have tried poses and moves, especially in AGY, I would never have dreamed I could do.

Best thing I've ever been dragged along too

I had never tried yoga at all until I was asked to go try anti-gravity yoga with a friend! ( dragged along kicking and screaming lol )
It was the greatest experience !! Testing my flexabilty, core and balance, whilst having a ball laughing the whole time !
Now you can't keep me away !
Kerryn makes the experience fun but at the same time giving you one hell of a work out !!
Everyone should try anti-gravity yoga at least once.. I did :D !!
With the best instructor ever Kerryn!!

Bliss

Myself and my mother LOVE our sessions with Kerryn, its a safe, warm and an encouraging environment. There always seems to be the perfect balance of strength and relaxation and you will always leave feeling amazing! Could not recommend Kerryn highly enough for anyone, any age, any fitness level looking to add a little something something to their lives.

Simply wonderful

Kerryn is an exceptional teacher. Warm, encouraging, kind and open-hearted, she creates a space that lets you realise how much you can do. She creates an air of trust and confidence from her first instructions. An Aerial Yoga class with Kerryn is like an hour of play, flight, challenge, exploration and recharging, and leaves you walking on sunshine for the rest of the week.

If you get the chance to go to one of Kerryn's Aerial Yoga classes, take it! It's the best experience.

What a difference Kerryn makes

My 11 year old daughter Justine has been doing anti gravity yoga with Kerryn for nearly two years and it has made such difference to her. She is so much more confident and assured. Very comfortable with her body and what she can do with it. Kerryn is always encouraging and supportive and she loves going every week.
Another wonderful thing about Kerryn and her studio is that others get to share the experience with her - her Aunty and her Dad have done sessions at the same time and everyone comes out laughing and confident.
I love watching what she has achieved at the end of the session - the complete amazement of what she has learnt.

No student has taught me more about the essence of yoga than Miss Justine. Donna you have a remarkable daughter. She approaches every single session with an open heart, gratitude and joyful curiosity. What a blessing to live in each moment like that. I hope that some of the techniques we practiced each week will continue to help her to stay so present. Thank you so much Donna and Bruce for trusting me with her - I adore having her friendship. Thanks also for joining in the love, light and laughter (& the core work)! Metta K

Wonderful teacher

Kerryn is amazing! I've done bits and pieces of yoga in the past but have never been challenged, inspired or supported to the same degree to keep the momentum going.

Kerryn not only takes the time to understand your individual strengths and weaknesses, but does so in a way that's fun.

She's an incredible teacher, which easily makes my Thurs night Anti Gravity yoga class the best part of my week!

Great fun and great work out at the same time!

I cant tell enough people about Kerryn and how awesome Anti-Gravity Yoga is with her. Kerryn is a wonderful instructor who tailors everything to each persons ability, flexibility and strength levels. I often go to Anti-Gravity Yoga with a friend who excels in the strength activities whereas I'm not as strong and am better with the flexibility activities.

Kerryn often gives us the option to push ourselves in both strength and flexibility but especially the area that doesn't come as naturally (strength for me). Anti-gravity yoga with Kerryn is always such an enjoyable time - always laughing and having a joke, especially when a new exercise is introduced and it looks too hard to do. Kerryn will always demonstrate and make it look way easier than it really is. I don't think I've done a session yet where I haven't been sore the next day (always good sore). If you haven't tried Anti-Gravity Yoga, you should and if you are in Canberra I can't recommend Kerryn enough! :)

And then we add on

Thanks Erin! You and Kyle have the distinction of being the only two clients who really, really, love hearing me say "and then we add on" which is super fun for me. Don't worry though I'll never run out of extensions. Thanks also for all the laughter - gives me quite a workout too. Metta K

Awesome!

I have learned so much from Kerryn. Due in my AGY sessions I have faced many obstacles with my anxiety it has moments where it has had other ideas when I have been learning new poses whilst hanging in the hammocks. But with such an awesome instructor to push me but at same time supporting and guiding me past my fears she ABSOULTY ROCKS! and she is my rock!

I Highly recommend everyone who is interested in trying Anti Gravity Yoga to go to Oya Yoga and give it a go!.....It is addictive! :))

Superb!!

As a 73year old beginning yoga student, I'm loving Antigravity sessions with Kerryn! She finds that "magic" balance between encouraging me to push my limits and being there with assistance. Her blend of demonstration and explanation mixed with her positiveness and humour are uplifting. I feel safe both physically and emotionally. I went into my 4th ever session, dragging and feeling scatted. I left feeling cohesive, energised and "dancing". I'm eager for my next session with Kerryn - a superb teacher!

Wow Nancy you are such an inspiration to me. It is so humbling to witness your courage, trust and presence. I love our sessions too and I'm so glad that you followed your spark of curiosity about the classes - it's going to be another amazing year. Much metta to you - K

Love love love (or facebook - like like life!)

Kerryn is a fabulous teacher. She combines demonstration and explanation, sanskrit and english as well as the spiritual meaning behind the different poses. All this is delivered in a fun and comfortable environment, created by Kerryn and the other practitioners.

I've been learning from Kerryn for some time and continue to revise and extend my practice. It's fun learning the finer nuances of some of the more common poses. From hatha yoga, my flexibility is coming along, so too is my suppleness, strength and breathing capacity.

Kerryn is generous with her knowledge, experience and guidance. I would highly recommend her for beginners through to advanced practitioners.

Want well-being? then stretch your body & mind with Kerryn!

Kerryn is a fantastic, warm friendly teacher who considers my injuries, mood and health on any given day, personalising the class so as to restore and build my fitness and my well being. I love the fact that her training lets me experience both the traditional and the bespoke, including my all time favourite - antigravity yoga. Her individual attention and sense of fun has made a real difference! I have never felt better and I never want to miss my yoga class!

Great personal yoga teacher!

Kerryn is a fantastic yoga teacher! Extremely friendly and flexible, she knows how to push and challenge strong or experienced students and she's also fantastic at teaching beginners and ensuring they get good foundations to build their skills from. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a personally tailored and flexible training program!

I rarely get excited to write a review, but Kerryn is one of the best people around and she's also my yoga teacher. She gives students a lot of individual attention and is super welcoming and friendly. Kerryn has created a beautiful calm space which i love coming too. I have tried other yoga studios but have never felt comfortable enough to return - but with Kerryn's boutique yoga studio I feel comfortable, happy and have made some wonderful new friendships. I really look forward to my anti-gravity and bespoke hatha yoga classes with her. I always leave with a massive smile on my face!

Such a lovely and knowledgable yoga teacher!

I'd tried various yoga studios in the past and never really could get in to it! Ever since I've been going to Kerryn I have loved it! Such a lovely environment and an experienced and kind teacher who is able to give attention to each individual in the small sized classes that are run there. I look forward to every class and it's worth every penny!! Highly recommend it!

Fun and Fitness

I really look forward to my anti-gravity yoga classes with Kerryn. Kerryn is very supportive and knowledgeable and her studio is full of fun and positive energy. I’m new to yoga and was not very strong or flexible but Kerryn has helped me understand my body’s ability and made me feel confidence attempting the various positions. The classes are well structured and build on the previous week. My body is getting stronger and more supple, all thanks to Kerryn’s expert instruction and encouragement. If you are looking for fun and fitness I would highly recommend Kerryn’s classes – she is a fabulous teacher!
