“Everything is already ok.

The notion strikes us as radical, and it surely is. What it means is that in our essential nature we are already fully awake and enlightened.”

Coast Yoga was established in 1994 by Vanessa Shribman and is the longest established yoga centre in the bay area. Vanessa trained in the Iyengar style of yoga extensively in India and then with various senior teachers in Australia. She was accredited in the Iyengar system until 2005. The Iyengar system of yoga is named after the yoga master BKS Iyengar. She is now accredited with Yoga Australia at the highest level. She is also a registered Physiotherapist. There are 8 teachers at Coast Yoga certified or trained in the Iyengar method.

At Coast Yoga most teachers are trained in the Iyengar method which is based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar who developed a methodical approach to yoga which emphasizes correct alignment in each pose and used props such as blankets and belts to achieve alignment. This approach is a profound way to develop balanced strength and flexibility and an increasing access to and understanding of the yoga system. Vanessa is formerly accredited in this method and now accredited at the highest level with the Yoga Australia. She is a Buddhist practitioner and is also a registered physiotherapist.

The Coast yoga Centre is a friendly and caring community of teachers, students. We also have various health care practitioners who practice from the clinic rooms at the Centre. The Centre aims to support a vibrant community which is guided by yogic principles such as authenticity, generosity and compassion.
