YOUR RETREAT INSTRUCTORS

CAROLINE WALL

According to Glam Adelaide "Caroline Wall is a superb artist and in her element when inspiring and motivating beginning artists. Her bold, vivid style of painting reflects her bright and funny personality."

After studying Art, Caroline was convinced that she wouldn't make a living from her passion so went on to study teaching majoring in Drama. She then landed her dream role as one of the first two Captain Starlight facilitators for South Australia. This saw her entertaining sick and hospitalised children and she realised she was most happy bringing joy to children in very creative ways.

She then went on to create BRUSH sharing her love of performing and art with adults. 2021 has seen BRUSH flourish with her Adelaide Fringe season SOLD OUT again and receiving a five star 'Glam Adelaide'review.

ANNIE JOHNS

Annie is lovingly known as our 'peaceful practitioner'.

Her kind and gentle nature calm and soothe the soul, meaning she is one of our most in-demand yogis with her classes regularly booked out.

Annie is a registered and certified yoga teacher in Restorative, Yin and Purna (balanced) styles and has been practicing yoga since she was 7.

Annie loves that yoga offers space to be present and enjoys calming the mind to escape the stresses of everyday life while also gaining strength and mobility. Annie also boasts an impressive list of qualifications in art curation, with a Masters in Curatorial Studies, a Post-Grad in Art History and an Undergraduate in Art Theory and English Literature!

CARLEY BEZZINA

Carley is one of Aleenta's most experienced instructors teaching fitness and Pilates for more than 15 years at a number of gyms and Studios in SA.

When not running around after her tween daughters and their dance comps, you can find her at the Studio.

Carley's interest in fitness developed from a desire to better understand her own body. Teaching Pilates was a natural progression and she loves nothing more than ensuring you feel every muscle, especially those in harder to activate areas. Her classes are filled with slower, more controlled movements that cause the maximum amount of activation!

She can't wait to unleash Megaburn at Retreat!
