Peter is the founder and director of Anahata Yoga, senior yoga teacher (E-RYT 500) and teacher of the Five Element Form. Peter has studied and practiced yoga for 52 years. He has had the honour of studying with many wise and knowledgeable teachers in India including Swami Shankara, Swami Sarasvati, TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan, BKS Iyengar and Rishi Nityabhodananda. Combining his study of Anahata Yoga with a lifelong interest in learning about bio-mechanics, postural integration, anatomy and physiology, Peter has developed the unique, powerful and comprehensive Anahata Yoga philosophy, which manifests in asana as the Dance of Shiva and Shakti.
Peter’s teaching style reflects his experience as a household yogi and his training in Assam, India. He embodies the qualities of grace, humour, compassion and non-judgement, and provides his students with the tools to apply the philosophy of yoga to all aspects of daily life. His classes are joyous, opening and transformational.
In 2002, Peter opened Anahata Yoga in Byron Bay after he had contributed as a teacher to the development of the 2000 Yoga Arts Certificate IV in Yoga Teacher Training, the first government accredited yoga qualification in Australia. He has been involved with the development and teaching of numerous teacher training courses around the world.
Peter is presently teaching Anahata Yoga internationally and studying ancient yogic texts with Rishi Nityabhodanana of the Satyananda Yoga tradition to complement his Anahata Yoga philosophy teachings.
