Owner & Founder
Owner and founder of Energy Cntr Yoga, Simone's passion and love for the practice will keep you coming back for more.
After being a gymnast for almost 10 years it was a natural progression to discover the practice of yoga.
Simone's practice became a part of her daily life almost 8 years ago, since then she continued with the daily practice leading her to complete her 200hr YTT in 2020 with Patrick Beach.
Simone has a unique approach to teaching blending both traditional and modern yoga, her yoga practice and teaching style are inspired by her Dad and his resilient nature after he became sick contracting necrotizing fasciitis in 2010; resulting in 12 months in hospital and a continuous recovery program today. His resilience, love and passion for life inspires all of the classes Simone teaches and her promise is to always lead from a deep passion and understanding of gratitude for the human body.
Simone truly believe's that every time you step onto your yoga mat, you are practicing from a deep love for yourself.
You practice yoga simply because it is your nature to do so, there is no separation, it is simply just a way of life. With a love for powerful, unique and strong classes, the classes are designed with the underlying value to inspire students in all aspects of their body and mind.
Jessica van Beijnum
Energized by the foundations of movement deeply rooted from my dance background.
I offer a class that invites you to feel into your body with curiosity and compassion.
Guiding you into sensation and out of your thinking mind with each practice.
Inspired by all things somatic, movement and music are the language of my soul.
Holding space in service for you to explore the depths of your inner wisdom, learn how to sit with yourself.
From here to recognize your own habits, patterns of thinking and feeling, then equipped to respond from your heart.
I am the proud Mum to three gorgeous girls. I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years, but it wasn't until I started struggling with my mental health several months ago, that it truly changed my life.
For me, yoga is not just about the benefits to your body (although these are amazing!), it's how it benefits your mind. How it makes you feel! It's what it teaches us off the mat, that I love the most.
Yoga allows us to slow down and turn our attention inwards, noticing what's serving us and what's not.
It's a beautiful journey of self-exploration and discovery, and one that I feel forever grateful to have started.
Suzanne Van Den Heuvel
Suzanne relocated to Perth from Holland in March 2020.
She has extensive experience teaching yoga, in particular Yin and myofascial release. Her classes have a strong anatomical focus with careful sequencing and time allocated to relax.
Following the teachings of Paul Grilley, Suzanne’s classes are based on the belief that we all differ anatomically, making the way we move so incredibly unique. Our yoga should be as unique as our bodies are.
Growing up I used to dance, I always felt drawn to movement, fast forward three years ago I went to my first yoga class, I knew this is what I would love to do and offer the world.
I’m passionate about exploring the body in an anatomical approach, challenging yourself, connecting to your body through movement and breath, along with creating a space for others that is safe to explore and connect with yourself on the mat.
I love that feeling of expansion and calmness in your mind and body after each yoga practice, to me it’s a form of self-love, and being able to guide others is such a dream come true for me!
Can’t wait to be in this beautiful space, and connect with you all.
I began practicing yoga at home in my early 20s, learning from yoga books and DVDs. In 2015, I completed my first yoga teacher training, as a way of gaining a deeper understanding of the practice and building community having moved interstate for work. I have been teaching yoga ever since.
My daily yoga practice, which incorporates study, meditation, contemplation, and asana is a consistent anchor in my life. It provides a gateway for aligning my body, heart, and mind with soul, with the intention to continually grow and evolve.
When it comes to teaching, I love the creativity of designing sequences, meditations, and topics for contemplation. But what I most love most is the opportunity to cultivate collective presence, joy, and community together.
I can’t wait to practice and connect with you.
Eve discovered Bikram yoga in 2007 and dabbled in and out of the practice, but really fell in love with yoga and meditation as a pathway to healing from two traumatic car accidents (within 6 days of one another) in 2010.
Practicing mainly Power Yoga and Yin in studios, Eve wanted to understand why she felt so good and this curiosity to go deeper and further into the practice took her to a self led immersion in Bali in 2015 where shortly after she signed up for her first 200 hour Yoga teacher training with Power Living in Manly NSW. Eve's passion, drive and thirst for knowledge led her to excel in her studies and she began her teaching career with a bang, opening her first studio in Fremantle upon returning.
Since the sale of her successful business, Eve has accrued over 750 registered training hours with various schools and teachers, including Les Leventhal, Adam Whiting, Laughing Lotus NYC and the School of Yoga Psychology Melbourne - but claims that her most valuable teachings and experiences have been through both personal insights during self practice, reading yogic philosophy, the privilege of informal training under the great influence of Wendy Wesson, Mal Yates, Shaney Aalbers, Patrick Beach, Carling Nicole, Kaye Waterhouse, Kylie Pearsall and many more of her exceptional peers. Eve has created and facilitated 6 Yoga Teacher Trainings and Training pathways and continues to be committed to learning and growing through the practice of yoga, mindfulness and science based tools for inner harmony and longevity.
You can expect bangin beats, funky variations, challenging yet considered asana, and always humour.
