EVERY TIME I VISIT AUSTRALIA FROM CALIFORNIA, I MAKE A POINT TO TAKE A CLASS
Every time I visit Australia from California, I make it a point to take a class at Dharma Cottage Yoga. When I’m taking a class from Vikki I feel completely accepted. She works with her students based on where they are and doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable if you can’t do certain poses. I always feel balanced and at peace at the end of class. She is knowledgeable about the practice of yoga and I always feel secure that I am in good hands during class. I can’t recommend Dharma Cottage Yoga enough.
All my best,

THE VERY BEST VERSION OF MYSELF
I am writing this testimonial with sincere gratitude to not only an exceptional yoga teacher but also the person I consider to be my best friend. Vicki is my inspiration, the person who listens to me, supports me emotionally and helps me with my confidence and to believe in myself.
Her absolute caring nature, dedication to whatever she throws herself into, love of people and living her life to the fullest, makes for someone you just want to be around. So yes, I’m one of Vicki’s biggest fans and very proud to call her my friend.
As a beginner in yoga and looking for something to help improve my life, she certainly makes me feel its okay to be at my level.
I have watched how yoga has transformed her life and with her mentoring she is helping me become the very best version of myself.
Thank you my friend,
NOBBY’S BEACH, GOLD COAST QLD
STARTING THE DAY – THE YOGIC WAY
Starting the day – the yogic way with Vicki is a perfect union of body and breath work in a beautiful and supportive environment.
When Vicki makes me a Goddess Lounge for Savasana it makes me feel like a special being floating in peaceful bliss
BEAUTIFUL SPACE, GREAT CLASS CHOICES & BRILLIANT INSTRUCTOR
Being relatively new to yoga, Vicki has been an amazing instructor who has nurtured and lead me through the beginners space. I now feel empowered and have fallen in love with yoga. It is a ‘must’ in my weekly schedule – all very much due to Dharma Cottage.
I would highly recommend Vicki and her yoga practices to anyone. Beautiful space, Great class choices & Brilliant Instructor.
WHAT AN AMAZING FIND! IT’S CHANGED MY WORLD!
What an amazing find! I have been going to the studio for months after a long hiatus. Its changed my world! So happy to have found such a supportive teacher and highly reccommend anyone to take a class as soon as you can!

YOU CAN FEEL THE AWESOME ENERGY RADIATING FROM THE SPACE
I have been attending yoga at the Dharma Cottage regularly for the past 18 months and will continue to go for as long as I can…
I started in pre-natal classes during my pregnancy – it was amazing for me in preparing to soften my body and focus on my breath throughout labour and the birth.
I now take my daughter to the mums and bubs class, which does wonders to help me relax and stretch out all those sore and tight muscles. Plus we get to have some contact time with other mums and bubs. We have been very blessed to have met some amazing ladies and babies!
Vic – our teacher is an amazing woman with a beautiful soul! Her guiding voice throughout the classes keeps you centred and in the moment. You can feel this awesome energy radiating from within the studio space, as soon as you walk in.
After the class you finish with a pot of tea made from fresh garden herds and a revitalised mind!
BEAUTIFUL DHARMA COTTAGE YOGA – SO WELCOMING
The atmosphere at beautiful Dharma Cottage Yoga is so relaxed and welcoming; your practice starts from the moment you walk through the gates! Vicki greets each student like an old friend.
Her relaxed attitude spreads to the participants and its easy to feel that you are among friends, even with strangers.
I attend the mums and bubs classes and the patience Vicki has throughput the class is astounding, with babies climbing over each other and everything (sometimes her), the occasional grumpy bub and sometimes baby mayhem. She somehow maintains a sense of acceptance, serenity and peace in the class despite all of this. Vicki is attracting a loyal following from those of us who so appreciate being able to bring our little ones into a safe and welcoming space and still be able to enjoy some authentic yoga practice and relaxation.
I find the class the perfect level for me (an experienced yogi) post birth, in that its simple enough to keep up with and still attend to baby, yet varies, challenging and deep enough to keep me interested.
Vicki presents to Akhanda style well, incorporating pranayama, asana an some mindful meditation into each class. The babies are accommodated brilliantly and her class prices are very reasonable.

An Essential part of my week
Vicki’s Yin Yoga at Dharma Cottage is not just a class. It is a holistic experience incorporating mantras, meditation, yin yoga, spiritual music and finishing with a soothing tea. Its absolutely wonderful and an essential part of my week.
ONE OF THE BEST YIN CLASSES I HAVE DONE
One of the most put together studios and Yin classes I have ever been to. Vikki is amazing, a very good teacher and a very good class!
I would reccommend any class with her to anyone of any age.
A SPACE FOR ALL SHAPES, SIZES AND ABILITIES
Vicki is amazing! I started with prenatal and now mums and bubs. Vicki has created a safe and nurturing environment for students of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
WARM & EMPOWERING
I practiced with Vicki through my pregnancy, she made me feel so comfortable and excited about the birth of my first child. She is warm and empowering and when I leave, I carry her energy with me through the week. She truly is one of the best & I feel lucky that she is my teacher and friend.
Thanks Vicki xx

A Giant Impact on my Life
I attended Yin Classes at Dharma Cottage with Vicki for the past year. I initially hoped the classes would relieve short term work stress, yet I had no idea they would end up having a complete, giant, irreversible impact on my life and my state of being. Something really stirred in my consciousness that changed my whole perception of reality and the world. Attending Vicki’s yoga regularly has invoked a state of joy and a feeling that anything is possible. Vicki’s Yin classes are friendly and inclusive and include valuable breathing and meditation techniques, I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to try Yoga!
I feel like I have my life back.
I highly recommend Vicki and her yoga practice.
Before I started attending Vicki’s Yin Yoga practice I had been seriously thinking I would have to give up working in my profession because of severe pain and difficulty in moving due to a medical condition I have , Ankylosing Spondylitis. Not only has Vicki’s experience as a Yoga teacher allowed me to remain at work her wisdom has given me many tools to manage my condition. Dharma Cottage also provides Wellness workshops, Kahuna Massage, Reiki and Sacred Full Moon Womens Circles that are amazing. The energy in the studio along with the meditiation and breath work practiced throughout the class leaves me feeling grounded and in a blissful state. I feel like I have my life back. Thank you Vicki, you’re a gem.
TIA LENNOX HEAD
WE LOVED IT SO MUCH, WE CAME EVERY DAY
Vicki was considerate that everyone has different abilities and wants and incorporated it into the classes. We loved it so much, we spent every day in Lennox attending a class.
Great way to enhance the day

PERSONALISED & WARM TOUCH
A truly fantastic experience at Dharma Cottage Yoga with Vicki. Vicki has created a beautiful space with a very personalised and warm touch. I have participated in general classes as well as prenatal and now mum’s and bubs. I always leave feeling rejuvenated and relaxed 🙂
Dharma Cottage Yoga is a sanctuary which Vicki has beautifully created with her passion of authentic and holistic yoga. She teaches with absolute attention and care and provides a beautiful, nurturing energy to engage in her meditation, pranayama and asana practices.
The classes cater to all levels and none is left behind. I am so thankful for this so thankful for this studio and to all that Vicki provides.
I highly recommend it to anyone.
My son has since grown up with Vicki’s class
I started Prenatal Yoga with Vicki from Dharma Cottage two years ago, and fell in love with her kind natured personality, and beautiful yoga space.
Vicki’s calm nature and presence throughout the classes were exactly what a newly expecting mother needed. Following on from the birth of our son, we continued our yoga practice with Mums and Bubs Classes at Dharma Cottage. My son has since grown up with Vicki’s class and we both look forward to coming each week. He now performs some yoga moves and I have always found Vicki’s classes restorative and soothing. Our son would always have a great sleep after Mums and Bubs Yoga classes!!

Hemp bedding is thick, luxe & buttery soft
I’d been looking to update my quilt cover for some time and recently purchased this beautiful queen hemp cover from Dharma Cottage Collective.
My main criteria for bedding is that it must be 100% organic.
When my cover arrived, I was so impressed that it didn’t arrive wrapped in a tonne of plastic, instead it was packed beautifully into a reusable hemp backpack that I will definitely be using around town.
The hemp cover is thick and luxe and became buttery soft after a few washes. The colour blends perfectly with my neutral styled home.
I am so impressed with my purchase and will definitely be adding more of these gorgeous hemp products to our home.
I DEAD SET LEAVE WITH SO MUCH VITALITY
Its the most fantastic time at Dharma Cottage Yoga, I dead set leave with so much vitality and it lasts for days.
Thanks so much Vicki xoxo
Nurturing the Body, Mind & Spirit

INCREDIBLE TEACHER – YIN IS MY GO-TO
Prenatal and mums and bubs has been a highlight of my yoga experience. Such a great experience getting to know the other mums and babies. Also, when I want to enjoy a class without my baby, Yin is my go-to.
Vic is an incredible teacher.

THE MOST AMAZING MUM’S & BUB’S CLASS IN THE AREA
The most Amazing Mum’s & Bub’s Class in the Area. Vicki is a great instructor and so beautifully understanding of the bub’s (and mum’s) needs.
The babies are included in the classes and incorporated into yoga poses. It really helps to relieve the tension I have in my neck and shoulders from holding hub and breastfeeding. I always leave feeling so relaxed – its actually my favourite hour of the whole week! Also a great place top meet other mum’s!
GODDESS LOUNGE, A GUIDED MEDITATION, HEAD MASSAGE OR ALL THREE!
I am so grateful that I found Dharma Cottage Yoga! Vicki is an amazing teacher & one of the most down to earth people you could meet.
I have been going there for some time and can honestly say that I haver never had two classes the same or been to a class that I have not learnt a new pose. Amazing!
Vicki puts in the effort to tailor the poses to suit each students abilities and wants. Class ends by ensuring everyone is completely relaxed. Whether that is with a Goddess Lounge, a Guided Meditation, Head Massage or all three! and always a beautiful pot of herb tea from the surrounding gardens.
Such a nurturing space & such a nurturing soul!
Thank You Vicki
