I discovered yoga in 1992 and was instantly hooked. While initially I was drawn to the postural practice and the physical benefits that come from this, it is the mental and emotional benefits that draw me back to the mat again and again. In particular, it was the peace and meaning that I found on the yoga mat during difficult times that sparked my desire to become a teacher so that I could share this gift with others. I enjoy teaching Yin and Restorative yoga in particular because it enables people to slow down and breathe and reconnect with their bodies.

My journey into yoga therapy was instigated by seeing family members suffer from chronic illness and injury and wishing to be able to provide them with the information and techniques to empower and support them to better health and wellbeing. In addition to completing Yoga Therapy training with Living Yoga Therapy, I have completed further training in Yoga for Pain and Yoga for Arthritis with Yoga for Pain Care Australia.

I have been teaching since 2011 and, in addition to teaching general classes, have taught in a range of settings including the Cancer Council WA; Multiple Sclerosis Society of WA; staff at King Edwards Memorial Hospital; seniors; and teenage girls at Standing Strong, a wellness club for girls that aims to build confidence, self-esteem and resilience.

I currently teach hatha, vinyasa, yin, chair and yoga for pain classes at Wembley Downs.

what people are saying about Theresa Venz


When I first attended the class you ran for the Cancer Council, I was searching for a way back into some kind of activity after the physical and mental scars of breast cancer and subsequent treatment were fairly well healed. I was finding it hard to get back to the level of exercise and fitness I had enjoyed; the swimming squad I had attended for more than 25 years had become unavailable around the same time as my diagnosis


Theresa teaches in a friendly Neighbourhood Environment. From our mats we look out onto lovely parkland, big trees, birds chirping in the background and dogs having a run in the park. She has blossomed in the past 3 years and developed a lovely teaching style incorporating a good balance of stillness and calm and of course a good stretch. Theresa is knowledgeable, patient and caring and always offering alternative poses to suit all levels. She manages to weave some
