The Yoga Space Founders
Dr. Jean Byrne & Rob Schütze
West Perth Studio
Jean & Rob are Senior Yoga Teachers who opened the doors to The Yoga Space West Perth in 2006. As their family grew to include two boys, The Yoga Space family grew also, and their senior teachers have opened their own Yoga Space studios. Jean & Rob are Research Fellows at Curtin University & deeply committed to exploring where the potentiality of practice meets research to contribute to the wellness of all.
They are Perth’s only officially recognised Ashtanga teachers and you can find out more about their Ashtanga teaching at Ashtanga Yoga Perth. Together they pass on their knowledge to students of The Yoga Space.
Laila & Michelle
Laila & Michelle
Michelle and Laila met whilst undertaking The Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Training at The Yoga Space, and their lives have been intertwined ever since. Over the many years and the inevitable ‘ups and downs’ of life, they became important fixtures in one another’s lives.
Practicing under the guidance of Jean and Rob, they travel regularly to Mysore, India to express their gratitude to their teacher Sharath Jois, and understand the importance of being eternal students.
Both locals of the Maylands/ Bayswater area, Michelle and Laila were drawn to the eclectic, ever growing community, full of local history and colourful personalities. They thought it only natural to bring yoga to a place they live, play and love.
Michelle and Laila knew they would love working together. They share the view that yoga is 24 hours; that our time on the mat is primarily a tool to live kind and compassionate lives. Most importantly they see that humour and light-heartedness is a necessity; not a day goes by without a giggle at the studio! They have observed how their formal yoga practice, has laid positive foundations in their daily lives, and they are excited to share and make that accessible to more people as part of The Yoga Space Family.
Following Odette’s multiple trips to India and Copenhagen to study with Sharath Jois, as well as being a student of Jean and Rob’s and a teacher for the Yoga Space for many years, she wanted to be able to share Ashtanga yoga with students in her local area, the northern suburbs. Hence The Yoga Space North was born. The Yoga Space is Odette’s second home and she is very excited to be able to continue to work with Jean and Rob by extending the Yoga Space family to the northern suburbs.
As we have now found our forever home, at the Carine Central building located at Carine Glades shopping centre. Class will still be held at Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club until July 4.
Yoga is a family affair for Odette, with her Mum, Pierina, and sister, Chloe, joining her each morning in the Mysore room and more recently mum and daughters have travelled together to study with Sharath and Saraswathi Jois in Mysore, India. This family affair will continue as The Yoga Space North grows with the hope that Pierina and Chloe will also become regular teachers there.
