Meet the Power Living Teacher Network- the names, faces and what makes them tick

Dan Barley

Manly, NSW

I first started practising yoga in 2013 in an attempt to try to regain some of the mobility I lost due to having a hip reconstruction as a child. I immediately feel in love with yoga & after several years of practise I completed my 200hr training at the Manly studio.

Overcoming the limiting beliefs I had around what I could or couldn’t achieve in my practise has been profoundly life changing & I want to help others with similar mobility restrictions achieve this in their lives.

What is your favourite Asana posture? Why?

Koundinyasana b – there’s just something so freeing in that moment when your feet leave the earth. Plus it’s super hard so it always get’s me out of my head!

What do you value most in others? Why?

Authenticity & Compassion – I know it said one but I couldn’t pick between the two!

If you could share a meal and a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would that be?

My paternal grandfather – I have a huge amount of admiration for my Dad, he’s the standard I hold myself up to. His father died when my Dad was only 16 so I never had the chance to meet him. I’d love the opportunity to meet the man who helped shape my father.
