The most functional and refined teacher training for therapeutic movement,

yoga philosophy and spiritual liberation.

Too often, yoga classes give cool effects, but no real results...

It can take years before we realise we are going in circles…

We believe that yoga can take us into deep meditation, HEAL us, bring fitness and transform our mind…

But how do we ensure it actually does that?

Functional Flow is born out of this inquiry. Not only is it possible, it is natural and simple, easy to learn and share. Yet, it’s rare.

Luckily, there is a way to get all the meaningful transformation we most desire and need.

In this training, you can have confidence that a functional approach actually changes the way our body, mind and emotions function.

A functional approach will completely set you apart as a yoga teacher, and bring a deep, embodied wisdom to your own practice.

Lead teacher

Ava is the director of Functional Spirituality and the Fremantle-based yoga studio Spanda School. Her deepest passions are embodied movement, therapeutic sensuality and inquiry into the mystical nature of ‘Being’. Her yoga journey started in 2008 when she tasted her first, sweet savasana at the end of a 90 minute hot yoga class.

Ava's spiritual path started with the fervent passion for awakening and non-dual liberation. However over the years her path has matured with a more functional approach. Her work now considers the wide-spread complex trauma that lies at the heart of almost every obstacle to happy, healthy and connected living, and marries profound mystical approaches with nervous system regulation. She has trained with Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few.

Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the phenomenal teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her husband Jarred of Kommunity brew, baby Jasmine and their fur-child Honey.
