Drawing from the disciplined world of dance to the depths of personal loss, Hayley Schmidt has created a yoga experience that strengthens the body while healing the spirit.

As a professional dancer, Hayley first approached yoga from a physical standpoint, striving for extreme strength and flexibility of her body. But when she experienced an unexpected tragedy, life as she knew it cracked open. Her practice taught her to observe and accept – and became her salvation.

In 2012 she opened Beyondbeing Yoga, a popular studio in Subiaco with a rotation of extremely qualified and experienced teachers. Her vision? To help others through the power of yoga, just as it helped her.

Hayley’s classes offer the discipline and dynamism of dance. Using her in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, she leads a nuanced practice that gives a transformative body, mind and soul experience.

Hayley regularly leads yoga classes for Co:3 Australia dancers when in season.
