Duncan Peak

Duncan is the original pioneer of contemporary yoga in Australia and the Founder, Master Facilitator and CEO of Power Living. The teacher of teachers, Duncan is committed to raising the bar on the level of yoga facilitation across the country. He’s a passionate yogi, soul surfer and spiritual warrior.

With 14+ years of teaching experience behind him, Dunx continues to share his modern-day yoga philosophy with the community. He has an anatomy background in NeuroSpinology, has completed extensive traditional yoga studies with Georg Feuerstein and practiced Raja Yoga for nearly 20 years. Smashing the traditional yoga stereotypes, it’s Duncan’s creative vision and courageous spirit that has shaped what Power Living is today: one of Australia’s largest and most successful yoga communities.

Adam Whiting

A passionate and inspired yogi, Adam Whiting teaches across Sydney for Power Living Australia Yoga. Coming from Charlotte, North Carolina, he brings with him a playful energy, which the P.L.A.Y community has quickly come to know and love.


As a voracious student of yogic theory and practice, Adam has studied and practiced with Rod Stryker, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Tiffany Cruikshank, Dice Iida-Klein, Briohny Smyth and Baron Baptiste. The resulting culmination of his diverse yoga study is a teaching style that artfully blends anatomical precision with powerful, energetic emotion and yogic tradition.

Adam loves the playfulness and creative freedom found in crafting an intelligently sequenced vinyasa flow class. When he’s not leading a meditation, you can find him cracking jokes and calling poses to the soundtrack of an upbeat, energetic playlist in his challenging but empowering vinyasa flow classes.

Adam is also partial to breaking down and inverting the flow with a focus on advanced arm balances and inversions. A talented musician, you will often find Adam in class with his guitar, a blissful experience bringing the power of raw, acoustic energy into the classroom.
