Faye Tohbyn

A passionate, engaging instructor, Faye Tohbyn is a trained yoga and pilates teacher and a long-standing supporter of the Island Bay Festival and community. For many years, she led Sunrise Yoga on the Beach attracting numerous local participants. Maybe some of you will remember the chilly sea dip after class!  In fact, Faye lived in Island Bay for over 30 years.


Drawing on a raft of experience, her classes focus on engaging the mind in the body.  The classes may incorporate classical or traditional practices along with a variety of exercises/movements from different workout styles.  In Faye’s words “it is about experiencing the body, the sensations, staying curious, allowing, perceiving and engaging”.
