Tony Magus is an IT architect by day which is also what led him to yoga in the first place. After an accident at work left me with a back injury and years of sitting in front of the computer made it worse, I started practicing yoga in an effort to help with this. At that time I certainly didn’t know just how much there was to learn but it was something that really resonated with me. Much later, an instructor suggested that I do some teacher training as I was showing a lot of interest in the wider aspects of yoga. After thinking about it for a bit longer I decided that it was a really worthwhile thing for me so I enrolled in my teacher training course with Byron Yoga Centre. After 7 weeks and 16 hours per day of classes, 7 days a week, I emerged with an 800-hour Certificate IV qualification in yoga teaching. To say that this changed my life is a bit of an understatement and I will be forever grateful to all my amazing teachers.
My classes are inclusive, whether teaching a dynamic flow, or a restorative. I teach to the beginner student in the room, but always make it challenging for the more established student.
Classes are generally low intensity which primarily intends to cultivate awareness and allow time and space for reflection. These classes are perfect for those new to yoga or for those who prefer a steady paced practice while linking breath to movement through postures that calm the mind and strengthen the body.
