Kristin (Kay) Ginnivan

Yoga Teacher & Director/Founder of Tidy Temple Yoga

Kay is a yoga teacher and principal founder/director of Tidy Temple Yoga in Canberra, Australia.  Born and partially raised in Sweden, she spent the major part of her childhood and formative years in Southeast Asia before settling in Australia in the early 1990’s..

Exposed to yoga as a young child in India and exploring her way through a variety of yoga styles, including traditional Ashtanga yoga, for many years as an adult before becoming a registered yoga teacher in 2012, Kay’s motto is “Yoga for Everyone”.

What started off as a personal journey for Kay, has  become a means of serving, transforming and empowering other people through community classes, workshops and events at her yoga studio, Tidy Temple Yoga (founded in October 2012 in Nicholls, ACT); workplace/corporate yoga in and around the ACT; presenting and sponsorship of major yoga events such as the Canberra Summer’s End Yoga Festival; and supporting organisations such as Lifeline Canberra, Save the Children, Open Doors and Frontline Yoga.

Kay’s teaching reflects the benefits of her regular meditation practice and love of dramatic arts, linguistics, and physical fitness. Her instruction is alignment-based (stemming from her Purna training at Byron Yoga and traditional Ashtanga practice) yet also free-spirited and joyful (drawing from her Baptiste Power Yoga & Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher training). Kay teaches Yoga Basics, Restorative Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga Flow and her classes range from deeply restorative to physically challenging.

Kay sees continuing studies as a natural part of her progressive yoga path.  She is currently studying Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga at Yoga Synergy and doing informal Ayurveda studies (the sister-science of yoga) under Robyn Lynch, Chopra certified Vedic Master, in Cowra.

Kids Yoga Teacher & Class Covers

Yoga has been a part of my life for about eight years now. After fracturing my ankle from running long distances, I discovered Yoga. At first it was a physical relationship but it didn’t take long to become much deeper than that. Things in life come and go but Yoga is always there for me. As a primary school teacher of nine years and now full time mum to my gorgeous identical twin girls, life is often busy and chaotic and Yoga has helped to keep me balanced, energised and mindfully content with the life that I lead. It has also taught me that although I may not be able to control what happens on the outside, I can control what goes on inside.

In 2015 I completed my 350 hour yoga teacher training through the College of Mind Body Spirit. Since then I have taught classes through my small business Rhythm of the Heart Yoga and Health and at various studios. In 2017, I also completed my Rainbow Kids Yoga training and I am currently studying a diploma of Human Nutrition.

I teach a variety of Yoga styles with Hatha Yoga at the core. Flowing Vinyasa classes are a favourite of mine as are slower paced classes that help to unlock and lengthen. I enjoy writing and incorporating my own meditations within classes. The chakras are of great interest to me and I regularly use them as inspiration. I also love teaching children Yoga and have been doing so in the classroom since the beginning of my Yoga Teacher Training in 2014. I am very passionate about the benefits that Yoga will have on people who make it a part of their lives and feel so blessed to be able to introduce Yoga to young children inside and outside of school.

Over the years I have also enjoyed deepening my own personal practice at home, online, in studios and in India and Bali.
