Name: Triton Tunis-Mitchell
Role: Co-Owner Power Living Yoga Adelaide, South Australia
Triton comes to yoga from a long history of body knowledge and practice. This includes over 30 years of training, performing and teaching acrobatics across Australia and the globe. Alongside this, Triton completed a Bachelor or Physiotherapy in 2004 and has spent more than 12 years as a musculoskeletal therapist, helping people both recover from injury and find their full physical potential. The physical and acrobatic nature of asana come naturally to Triton. However it is the meditative and philosophical aspects that have lifted his yoga practice from being merely another way to move, to being the practice that supports living a life that is bold, generous and meaningful.
Triton’s yoga practice has been interwoven throughout his acrobatic training but kicked off formally with teacher training in 2012. Retraining more recently with Power Living lifted the lid on what yoga in a modern world can look like. He is currently working towards his 500hr qualification.
Alongside his partner Tessa and the rest of the team, he is pumped to bring Power Living’s transformational practice to the Adelaide yoga scene.
Getting to know the crew:
What is your favourite asana posture?
Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) – it’s the fastest way to empty my brain and get back in the moment.
When you are not extending, bending and sweating what do you like to do?
I love teaching kids circus – so good for bodies, brains and enjoying the art of play.
When students walk out of my class I hope they feel…
Inspired to live boldly.
