NAMASTE,  Welcome to my web site. My name is Libby. I hope you are well and ‘IN THE LIGHT’, in other words I hope you are feeling the JOY of being a human being. It really is a gift, although sometimes we need a little help to feel it.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME    I’ve been teaching Hatha Yoga in HEALesville since 1999, in fact I’ve taught over 7000 classes in the Yarra Valley Since 1999. Before that I taught regular classes in Fitzroy.

If you want to know more about me, including my CV  spanning 25 yrs , click on the ‘ABOUT ME ‘page.


If you need yoga, pilates  and or meditation  regularly I’m  taking private  classes.  A private  class is  ideal for one or two people.

My yoga  room and far infra red sauna .

If u want to talk  im ready to chat

find me on facebook or messenger << LIBBY MITCHELL<<

The investment for a private class with me is :

$30.00 for one hr 

$50.00 for two  hrs

We shall discuss, explore, and attend to your new and old injuries.

OR we can do a  semi silent hatha yoga class.


You choose when we hold the session.


$50.00=  two hours

  $30.00 = one hour


 The sauna is included in the  $30.00 or $50.00. The Far Infra Red Sauna  lives in the yoga room – see pic. Its a 2 seater. The science suggests this kind of sauna is a rapid alkalizer, in other words its really good medicine as no dis-EASE can exits in AN ALKALI ENVIRONMENT.




FAR INFRARED SAUNA: rapid alkalizer

EASY PILATES : THERAPEUTIC > PELVIC/ SPINAL ALIGNMENT>I  teach simple easy pilates  moves and stretches , at the same time the student gives me feed back about how that feels. This gives me important information as the body is highly intelligent. Working this way slowly helps eliminate old soft tissue pain THROUGHOUT THE  ENTIRE BODY , eventually allowing for actual pilates (see below) where we go hard  and  create interior/ core strength and a new body if are willing to practice at home daily.

GENERAL PILATES :   BUILD CORE STRENGTH >PELVIC FLOOR >pilates combines yoga stretches and pretty triky moves that Joseph Pilates invented.  It was the early  1900’s he was a dancer a boxer a yogi and a trapaese artist ,  war broke out, he found himself imprisoned  but  as well he had  an injured spine and no one to help so he decide to heal himself whilst on his bunk – he adapted all kinds of found objects to aide his healing.   …genius   I love it. You will too . i think its the quickest way to get results…but we do need to practice at home.. ill give u a few exercises to practice each week. I was never a fan of home work but when it comes to our bodies …home work is essential.  id like daily exercise to become everyone’s habit.

Regardless of how wonderful Pilates is like all things if done incorrectly can easily injure us. So when practicing it we must put our ego away and go slow .  until the core strength is such that u cannot injure ur spine… then its a free for all 😉

BOOT CAMP PILATES  : BODY SCULPT>HI CARDIO>we can only go a head with boot camp pilates  if  your spine pelvis are %100 .You MUST NOT  HAVE SCIATICA   .

Boot camp Pilates is a blast.  I used to teach it with loud music to about 20 young women . It didn’t take long for us to be  dripping wet .  Its pretty much like being in a gym.  I give you challenging  work to complete . You breath thru it.. and get super  fit, however like all things injuries can occur…I cant feel what the student feels.. so ask the student to stop immediately  if pain begins… the old no pain no gain is bs… fact is  . pain is a warning system .

EASY  HATHA YIN YOGA :  THERAPEUTIC >very gentle, easy stretches mostly  seated or laying down with a focus on gentle controlled breath work.

 STRONG IYENGAR YOGA : DIFFICULT YOGA > when you are   fit and strong I’m happy to go there, but until the hips knees back are string I will not .  when  I was a 20 yr old Iyengar yoga was  fashionable.  It became  my  first love in the yoga realms.Unfortunately I’ts very patriarchal in nature,push push – ignore all pain !  Eventually it caused  much un wanted stress on my some what broken ballet body so I  let go of the mind set and approached the same postures with a yin-soft- mind.

PRANAYAMA : BEGINNERS BREATHWORK  >  MAXIMIZE OXYGEN IN BLOOD  > SOOTH VEGUS NERVE  >  BALANCE BRAIN CHEMISTRY Breathing isn’t rocket science, we’ve all been doing it day and night for our entire lives . I use a simple de stress breath in for 3 out for 3…  and hold…always Via the  nostrils.

If your nose is blocked you  may have may issues with your  diet.

NUTRITIONAL ADVICE : .SOME FOOD IS MEDICINE  > SOME WILL KILL US SLOWLY >  I studied natural medicine in USA in the 80s. I didn’t certify as I  came  home to Oz .  However I did learn alot and have applied it since 2001  ive grown herbs for  heart disease ….all bacterial issues… insomnia..low blood pressure etc  etc … the majority of my knowledge is based on herbalism and bowel cleansing , managing pain naturally via  alkalizing the body with good food.  I’ve also studied permaculture aka sustainable organic farming , and learned a lot about the nutritional value of the weeds that grow naturally among us in our back yards . Providing we have never sprayed the area  with weed killer these weeds  really are super foods with the  best nutrition ever.

MEDITATION :  ”GO WITHIN OR GO WITH OUT” >   THE GOOD NEWS IS IF U DO THE BREATH WORK  FOR LONG ENOUGH YOU WILL MEDITATE.       Over the past 23 yrs I have  fine tuned 7 scientifically  very easy meditation techniques…..They are not new, I did not invent them, I make no claim to them as many healers do . But I have studied  and practiced them thoroughly. Ive  taught them in over 700o classes thus have  proof they work

FOR  an in depth  look at my 7 favorite  meditation  techniques , most of which  are gleaned from THE YOGA SUTRAS by  ANCIENT AUTHOR and SAGE PATANJALI,  go to my ”WHATS NEW” PAGE .

MY MISSION STATEMENT~~~MY  Intention  is to be of use to you, to  build you up, to make you realize that you are amazing and that  you  can  heal your own body. The only thing that is missing is information.  Once the body becomes more alkali than acidic we begin to think differently, we become smarter ! or a better way to say that is~ when we r alkali, we are simply the best version of ourselves.

Thanks for taking the time to read my web site when so many of us are too busy to read AT ALL.
