Student level

My yoga journey began back in Perth, Western Australia. At the time I was building houses in the construction industry. Yoga at the end of a hard day's work had some incredible healing benefits for my mind and body. Benefits so powerful that I knew I wanted to share this practice and tradition.

Fast forward 3 years, I was brave enough to quit my job, move to Melbourne, and complete my first yoga teacher training. These days my teaching is slow, strong, mindful and accessible for anyone who decides to roll out their yoga mat. I believe that I am there to guide the students who show up, while they navigate their own individual experience.

Teaching Style

  • **Adjustments/Assists: Adjustments are given when consent is given.

  • Theming: I feel it is important to convey a theme or message while teaching and mine generally come from a recent experience.

  • Sequencing: I love layering a sequence (building on it as we get deeper into the practice).

  • Music: I like to play a variety of music that matches the energetic flow of the practice. You'll find a new playlist most weeks, anything from deep house to the soothing sounds of nature.

On & Off the Mat With: Bobby Hancock

As a yoga teacher, what inspires and motivates your teaching?

The fact that there is always more to learn and always room for growth. Being able to share this is the best.

How has your own yoga practice evolved since becoming a teacher?

I have become a lover of mediatation and fascinated by the internal growth that a yoga practice can produce.

Do you have any yoga teachers that you admire and/or look up to? Who are they?

Rod Stryker (ParaYoga), Octavio Salvado (The Practice Bali), Patrick Beach (he can do some cool stuff).

For those of us that haven't practiced with you before, what can we expect from your classes?

A calming voice, a slow and steady pace, and the right amount of physical challenge that will get your mind chattering. Then I'll remind the students to be the observer.

I believe that I am there to guide the students who show up, while they navigate their own individual experience.

What type of class could you teach all day, everyday and why?

Slow Flow. I'm a slow mover and I think majority of society can definitely slow down too.

Do you practice any other form of movement or fitness besides yoga? If so, what kind?

At the moment its building strength in the gym, followed by a long sit in an infrared sauna, and finally a freezing cold shower. Trust me. It's the best!

What's your go-to spot in Melbourne to get inspired?

Beyond Rest Floatation Tank Centre.

Which 3 icons or figures would you want to sit next to at a dinner party and why?

Gautama Buddha, Graham Hancock, Paul Chek. Their teachings and knowledge excite me.

And lastly because it's fun, what's your spirit animal?
