Jen Stuart

My name is Jen and I am originally from London. I moved to WA with my partner and now living in the nourishing Margaret river with him. I drive to Fremantle fortnightly for other yoga commitments. I first discovered yoga through the desire to heal myself from a car crash back in the UK. This has lead me on an unexpected journey. A regular mindful yoga practice was my cure. Through chronic pain, allergies, PTSD and denial yoga shifted so much. The practice entirely changed my existence and now I am no longer suffering from any ailment, and this is not by chance. I am so passionate to share tools, techniques and practices with others along their journey in a gentle and nurturing way and so others can truly regulate, feel and love themselves. Also sharing Hatha Yoga, I feel there are some powerful interconnection with philosophies and teachings that trickle into the yoga for trauma work I now specialise in. Trauma Informed Yoga is about coming back into the body, reconnecting and becoming empowered moment to moment. Everything is an invitation and and an opportunity for exploration.Running monthly workshops and courses around Yoga for Trauma & Yoga for Emotional Resilience in both the South West and Fremantle. I also offer this work one on one, either at the clients home or at my home studio for an incubated and unique programme.

Clients I treat:  Everybody, but for specifics.. Trauma, anxiety, depression, abuse, neglect, physical ailment, emotional shock, grief, any emotional instability, those needing grounding, healing, drug and alcohol addiction recovery (trauma covers a lot of areas as people can be traumatised for so many different circumstances)

Heather Starr has been practicing yoga for over a decade, rolling out her mat in yoga studios all over the globe. Founder and Creator of Starr Light Yoga, as well as Founder and Director of the South West Yoga Fest, Heather was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 in Montreal, Canada, her home and native land. After achieving a diverse educational background with degrees in Social Science, Political Science and Public Relations Management, Heather broke away from the 9-5 office job life, and moved to the breathtaking islands of the Bahamas. She began to practice yoga regularly and decided to venture off and complete her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training in Costa Rica in 2009. Heather recently completed her Healing Art of Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Danielle Mercer, in July 2018, in order to continue her evolution of understanding and help compliment our Yang lifestyles and vigorous Vinyasa practices. Heather's style has evolved over the years and blends Hatha with Vinyasa and Yin in many of her classes. Her classes combine the Asanas (physical postures), Meditation and Pranayama (breath work). Heather is also a Wellness Advocate for DoTerra Essential oils and shares the oils in class to enhance the practice with her students. When Heather isn’t teaching classes or being a mum, she’s working hard on putting together the annual South West Yoga Festival; a two day fun filled event which provides yoga classes, meditations, wellness talks and healing workshops, yummy food trucks, and live music all in one beautiful South West location. Proceeds from the event go to providing South West Schools with free yoga classes

Angela Oberholzer


Angela began practicing yoga in 2000 during a 2-year travel experience through India, Nepal and South East Asia.  She spent extensive time practicing meditation and yoga in monasteries, centres and ashrams, whilst being completely submerged in the culture and studying the philosophy.

In 2006 Angela began a dedicated practice of the Sudarshan Kriya, Pranayama, Sahaj Samadi meditation and yoga through the Art of Living Foundation.  It was during this time that she also found solace in the practice of yoga asana to bring balance to her stressful life in the corporate Medical Industry in Cape Town, South Africa.

Angela's practice began with Hatha Yoga but she has also been trained in Iyengar, Vinyasa, Therapy and Yin Yoga.  She has completed her 500hrs teaching certification, is a member of Yoga Australia and has specialised in the teaching of Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga for Active Birth and Postnatal Yoga.

Angela draws influence from all of these styles to formulate an alignment-focused, flowing practice that links the movement of the body with the breath in a creative and dynamic way.  Maintaining strength and flexibility has been a key factor in complimenting her competitive trail running career and giving her that extra advantage to win multiple events in the past.  Angela draws on this and her extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology when supporting those with injuries and reduced mobility and teaching Therapy and Yin yoga.

Being a qualified Dietician and Specialised Pregnancy Yoga teacher, Angela has a strong interest and passion for educating, supporting and empowering women during pregnancy, birth and thereafter.

 Angela also offers private yoga classes that are uniquely designed, adapted and tailored to suit your needs and personal goals.  In this space, you will receive complete focus and attention; build a strong foundation and understanding of the practice and of yourself.

Angela believes that everyone should practice yoga as it offers a way of achieving maximum wellness of the body, mind and spirit whilst creating a community of sharing, support and love. She invites you to join her on the mat to explore the body and journey within!
