Ruby Anna Fraid
Yoga and Meditation
Finish your day at the Melbourne Showgrounds with a yoga and meditation session with Ruby.
Ruby's Training and Qualification:
I completed my 500 Hour YTT course at the Moksha Academy of Yoga. Not only was it a fulfilling and wholesome experience gaining my knowledge at this academy, they hold a high level of importance on the topics of Anatomy and Physiology and specifically Injury Prevention, hence why I believe this training was particularly beneficial for my experience in the teaching world.

What teaching Yogic practices means to me:
As I discovered Yoga through a means of mental, emotional and physical therapy, I have gained a deep connection and passion for all that such practices can offer to the mind and body and the relationship between them. Through my teaching I hold importance in incorporating Asana as a means of connecting to the body and centering oneself, providing a way for my students to reach deep within and have a fuller understanding of their body and its systems and how this relates to health holistically. I hold high value on the use of Pranayama and Yoga Nidra/Meditation in terms of internal awareness and obtaining a higher form of spiritual connection and growth. I particularly enjoy the use of sound healing and Yogic instruments for deeper results during Meditation and Pranayama, and have been practicing with such instruments in my own classes. Overall, my main goal as a teacher is to hold space for my students, providing them with a safe environment to practice, allowing them to gain a sense of belonging, unification and a means of becoming physically active while remaining in tune with their internal being. I have been Vegan for 2 and a half years now, and as I made this decision in my life to change my views and values around animal cruelty, I also began my own personal journey into self-awareness and compassion for others. For me, Veganism and Yoga work hand in hand, both placing a high level of importance on the consideration and value of life in all its forms.
