Yoga for Every Body! Come and enjoy a 55min classical Yoga (restorative & peaceful) class or book a more dynamic Hatha Yoga class for 30min, 45min or 55min in the style of Shanti Yoga. Classical Yoga every Saturday during school terms at the Bert Swift Community Centre, 11 Centurion Crescent, Nerang. Children''s Yoga and Children''s Yoga Parties also available on the Gold Coast & Brisbane. Jo Knight is the highly qualified Yoga teacher & owner of Busy Bodies Yoga. She takes an approach to Yoga that is committed, honest & lighthearted. We welcome everyone to Busy Bodies Yoga, a non-competitive & relaxed place to experience Yoga.

Welcome to Busy Bodies Yoga, established by owner and Yoga teacher Jo Knight and situated on the beautiful Gold Coast.

Jo has practised Yoga for the past 7 years and studied with renowned Yoga master Shanti Gowans, the founder of Shanti Yoga™ and The Health Institute on the Gold Coast for 6 years. During this time she has completed a Certificate in Children's Yoga Teacher Training, Certificate IV in Yoga Teacher Training and a Diploma in Yoga Teacher Training,  the latter two of these courses requiring a minimum of 600 hours of time spent on the mat and on retreat with Shanti herself and other senior teachers. The training has required significant theoretical understandings of Yoga and an introduction to Yoga's sister science Ayurveda, and deeply encourages continued and consistent experiential understandings of Yoga arising from her own personal practise. Jo continues to practise and study with Shanti, deeply respecting the wisdom, insight, love, non-judgment and light heartedness Shanti gifts to her students.

Prior to committing to the Yoga path Jo attained a double degree in Law and Modern Asian Studies from Griffith University in Queensland, practising as a solicitor in Brisbane with a particular interest in family law. She has continued to enjoy participating in activities requiring legal knowledge related to ending violence against women and children. Non-violence is an incredibly important principle of Yoga, known as Ahimsa, and the understandings gathered from her experience of Ahimsa whilst practising Yoga influence her contributions in assisting others  experiencing violence.

Jo is also a mother of 3 young children and enjoys teaching children's Yoga and applying Yoga in everyday life as a parent. Yoga has over time proved a wonderful tool in accepting that chaos and noise is a natural part of this parenting process! But hey, she'd still love a sound proof room every now and then with some beautiful meditative music that doesn't incorporate the sweet sounds of screaming children!!
