We love to offer enabling discounts for people who have a need for our support because of disability, long-term unemployment, students (with no help from parents) or chronic pain conditions that prevent work. And there is much need at the moment of course, because of the increased strain of COVID. So if you have access to assets, savings, shares, or property, can we ask you to reflect on whether you can stretch to afford the full fee at this time, or maybe choose a payment plan. Thanks!

Amara began practicing mindfulness yoga and meditation in 1977. On noticing how effective the practices were in supporting her physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, and with a heartfelt longing to be able to support others, she immersed herself in study and practice. From 1987-2008 she was manager and senior teacher at the Manly Yoga and Meditation centre, a not for profit organisation.
During her 35 years of teaching experience she has taught mindfulness yoga and meditation in private consultation, schools, work places, community groups, retreat centres and to inpatients at both Manly and Royal North Shore Hospital drug and alcohol rehabilitation units.
