Sabrina is an IYTA trained Hatha yoga teacher, a Ki-Atsu Institute trained Ashtanga yoga teacher and a Zenergy Yoga trained Children’s yoga teacher. In addition to holding certification to teach yoga, Sabrina is also a Registered Nurse and a Mental Health Nurse with a Working With Children Check. She works with youth, adults and older adults by combining her skills and expertise in counselling, general health planning, and yoga instruction to work alongside each person to attain their goals.
Sabrina has been very fortunate to have been born into a family of yoga instructors and has been practicing yoga (postures, breath work and meditation) since early childhood, so yoga to her is a way of life. She lives it, breathes it, practices it and speaks it. Sabrina teaches yoga to groups as well as one-on-one and is passionate about making yoga accessible to all.
Sabrina worked for many years in remote parts of the Kimberley region and in developing countries such as Vanuatu and Vietnam, in a teaching, nursing, counselling, volunteering and program development capacity. Her remote work has allowed her to be directly involved in working with remote indigenous communities, multi-cultural communities, and youth at risk. It has allowed her to refine her skills in meeting the needs of each person as an individual as well as building strong community ties, and to guide them on their journey back to wellness by incorporating physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual needs.
During a session with Sabrina, she takes a whole of person approach following a bio-psycho-social model of care. What’s that I hear you say??? What this means is that all aspects of your life will be discussed so that changes can be worked on together to reach your full potential. Whether it be through yoga practices, mindfulness-based counselling practices or both, each session aims to reconnect you with your true inner self and to feel empowered to living life to the fullest. Wellbeing is a lifestyle choice…and sometimes all you need is someone to believe in you and guide you along the way. That is what Sabrina is about.
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitations; your consciousness expands in every direction; and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” – Patanjali
Gabriel Pergamalis is passionate about helping people empower themselves to create their life the way they want it to be. Having overcome long term anxiety himself, he understands how difficult it is to live in a state of stress – in survival mode. This is what has driven him to understand how the mind works, especially the influence of the subconscious mind.
From an early age, Gabriel did not accept the status quo, searching for knowledge and truth. In his search, he has been guided by people such as Dr. Joe Dispenza, Benjamin Harvey, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Abraham Hicks, Ajahn Brahm, Mike Dooley and Sadhguru.
He grew up with a strong connection with the outdoors and with an attraction to the simple things, like growing fruit and vegetables and exploring nature.
Martial Arts has played a big part in Gabriel’s life since he was a child. Although initially being drawn to the physical aspects and wanting to emulate his hero Bruce Lee, he is now more interested in the part the mind plays in achieving peak performance.
He is constantly upgrading his level of training to bring his clients the most simple, yet effective techniques to develop mindfulness, connect with their true self and overcome conditioning of the subconscious mind.
Gabriel’s current qualifications include:
- Certificate of Clinical Hypnosis from The Australian Academy of Hypnosis
- Practitioner Neuro Linguistic Programming from Dynamic Creation
- Diploma of Coaching from Dynamic Creation
- Results Coaching Certification from Authentic Education
- Diploma of Meditation Teaching from the Perth Meditation Centre
- Infinite Possibilities Certified Trainer from Mike Dooley
