Teacher Bios

Born in New Zealand, Ondine graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Music Performance degree in classical flute. She’s lived and worked around the world in locations such as India, the UK and Spain, but now calls Australia home.

While in Spain, she committed five years to full-time Yoga study at the Dharmâlaya Ashram in Granada. Her training was orthodox and traditional in disciplines including Hatha Yoga, Vyayam Yoga, Vedic Dharma, Ayurveda, Meditation & Vedanta. Three years living in Rishikesh, in Northern India, gave Ondine experience in teaching classes while co-directing the establishment of the Yogâlaya Ashram and Monastery.

Ondine’s passion for Yoga and the Art of Living is unwavering and evidenced by the energy she brings in sharing the knowledge she so gratefully received. She’s also a highly experienced teacher having taught in many studios as well as facilitating retreats, workshops and conferences in Australia and internationally over the past thirteen years.

Hatha Yoga Sydney realises Ondine’s dream of sharing her knowledge with the yoga community of Sydney. She invites you to her studio to experience firsthand how she translates what’s timeless and traditional into practice for our contemporary lifestyle.


Sanchia has more than 10 years experience working as a Remedial Massage Therapist and is also a qualified and passionate Yoga Instructor.  Before becoming a massage therapist, Sanchia worked in a corporate environment for many years, she understands first hand how that life can affect the body on both a physical and emotional level.   Sanchia recognises that the first step towards recovery is the individual’s awareness of their condition and how their body works.  Her knowledge of the anatomy of the human body is intuitively incorporated into the sequencing of her yoga classes, which are focused on assisting individuals to develop a deeper understanding of their own body.
