Your teachers

Hi!  We’re Nick and Jaccy, directors and lead teachers at Mala Yoga.  Between us we’ve been practicing yoga for over 50 years and believe in sharing yoga in a way that is uplifting, inclusive and nurturing.

Our studies and practice are connected with the Himalayan Masters tradition which encompasses all of the paths of yoga.

Our classes are guided by a connection to the natural ebb and flow of life and seasonal energy through the application of the Ayurvedic principles.

Nick Rowe

Nick’s yoga journey began over 30 years ago when, following a motor vehicle accident, the desire to self heal and rehabilitate was realised. Nick has discovered that yoga, pranayama and meditation practice has assisted greatly with general health, well-being and stress management. Nick continues to enjoy regular practice from a humble and humorous perspective. Nick is a certified yoga teacher and completed his yoga teacher training with Brad Hay Inner Revolution in the tradition of the Himalayan Masters.

Jaccy Rowe

Jaccy was introduced to yoga over 20 years ago, enjoying the practices of ashtanga, hatha, vinyasa and yin yoga throughout her journey. Jaccy’s practice has enriched her physical and mental well-being, adopting the yogic principals into every day life for the benefit of herself and others. The desire to become fully immersed in yoga and share this joy with others led Jaccy to complete her teacher training with Byron Yoga. Jaccy has also completed advanced yoga training with Brad Hay Inner Revoution in the tradition of the Himalayan Masters.  Jaccy embraces an holistic approach to yoga blending asana, pranayama, meditation and breath awareness, making yoga available to people of all levels of experience. Jaccy is a certified Yoga Ed Kids and Teenage Yoga Teacher and has also completed training in AromaTouch Technique and Peter Hess Sound Massage Level 1.
