About Lainie

Co-Founder and principal teacher at One Family Yoga & Fitness, Lainie believes that it is important to let go of the identities that we take on in the world (Mother, Yogi, Father, Sister, accountant, etc) while on the mat. It is a time to strengthen the body from the inside out through Ayurveda (science of Life), Asana (Posture), to connect to the breath to open the body through conscious breathing (Pranayama) to calm the mind with Meditation. Lainie teaches to the individual, she guides you gently in and out of each pose regardless of your experience with yoga so that you always feel, comfortable, confident and successful.

“Yoga for me is timeout, timeout from the busyness of motherhood, business owner and the mind. Time to self reflect on what is working for me and what is not. Time for silence in my life, for space in my mind and body, so that I can be fully present with my family and the demands of the studio when needed. Time for self.”

Laine Jenkins is a ERYT500 teacher with Yoga Alliance and a certified Level 3 Senior teacher with Yoga Australia, she has been a devoted yoga practitioner for 17 years and teaching yoga for 14 years. Lainie’s teacher training study initiated with level 1 ISHTA System, with Rachel Zinman. The ISHTA System that Integrates the Sciences of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda for an integral practice. In Lainie’s classes and trainings, students of all shapes and sizes find tips, tricks, and modifications to make yoga asana work for their unique body, instead of being squished into poses for the sake of form over function. She emphasises safe alignment and mindful transitions, and guides each student to honour the body they bring to the mat today, while being empowered to learn about the body’s intelligence and power to serve you on and off the mat in everyday life.

Lainie’s interest in movement began as a dancer and she was later certified as an International Les Mills Trainer and Presenter and Pilates Instructor. After 20 years in this world, these interests led her towards yoga.

Lainie has further qualifications in Ayurveda, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Kids Yoga, Teens Yoga, Pre and Post-natal Yoga.

Lainie is now lead teacher and course creator of the One Family Yoga & Fitness 200/350/500hr Yoga Teacher Trainings.

What Our Students Are Saying About Our 200 Hours Core Yoga Teacher Training

Lainie is such a passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgable trainer. She made learning fun and ensured we had an excellent understanding of ‘why and how’ for every topic covered. I’m so glad I didn’t go anywhere else! ~ Kim Horsfall

Such a life changing course! Practical classes and training with lots of informations about how to provide a total wellness experience for students Mind, Body & Soul. Taught in the usual One Family way with a relaxed atmosphere and lots of humour. ~ Jeanette Parrish

I am very grateful to have enrolled in this course. the level of knowledge delivered by Lainie and her Teachers was insightful and extensive. If I could briefly describe the teaching it would be practical, supportive and full of integrity. The weekly classes suited me perfectly and I feel so blessed to have had the small group structure, giving us time to feel comfortable and regularly teach within the group. On completion of the L1 teacher trainman I felt confident to teach to a class and further signed up to continue my L2 teacher Training. ~ Suzanne Edwards

This teacher training course was just what I needed for some direction. I feel like I’ve learn’t more than expected and I just want to keep going. A big thanks the Lainie, Katie and everyone involved in this course. I absolutely loved it and could easily do it again. ~ Kali Pereira

The content of the course was excellent and Lainie’s guidance was inspiring. I feel equipped to continue on my yoga journey. Thank you for giving me a strong yogic base to start from. I really liked during the course the discussions that came with the face to face course and the community feel of One Family Yoga & Fitness. ~ Helen Logue

Having tried 2 other teacher trainings and left unsatisfied, I’m so glad to have found OFYF. It has been an amazing foundational course incredibly supportive, and I’ve finished with the confidence to get out and start teaching in the near future. ~ Bec Crisp

OFYF studio sets a safe and supportive learning environment that ignites and excites the student to take on and embrace each new and challenging lesson. ~ Nancy Gillam

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training: I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a lot, I would highly recommend this course. ~ Angela Thom

The OFY&F Teacher Training is extremely comprehensive and provides the perfect balance of theory and practice, with an emphasis on learning to teach to each individual in the class. Taught by experts, it not only equips you with a deeper knowledge of yoga, including the foundations, philosophy and techniques, but also encourages a personal transformation that will stay with you long after your training has finished. ~ Rachel Christie

Yoga has been an equally terrifying and beautiful thing for me.

It has sat on the peripheral of my life for many years. I have watched people I love and respect go to Yoga and just shine.

I had a list of things for many years that I thought would make be better as a person. Things that would make me be the person that I wanted to be. That would make me happy. It was a long list and Yoga was on it.

But I kept telling myself that I had things to do first, before I could go to Yoga.

I had to lose weight FIRST. I had to get fit FIRST. I had to learn as much as I could before I went to my first class so that I knew what I was doing when I got there. I had to have the right clothes, eat the right food, stop drinking alcohol. I even told myself that I needed to get to a place where i was less outgoing and extroverted – that I had to be more calm and Zen.

But then I got brave and bought a Beginners Pass.

I got even braver and I came.

I wasn’t skinny, I certainly wasn’t fit, I’m pretty sure that I had wine the night before my first class and wore whatever I could find in my very UN-substantial fitness clothes drawer. I’d neglected, ignored, abused and hated this body of mine for so many years, but then I discovered that I simply COULD.

Not COULD like the Yogis of Instagram, not even COULD like most of the people in the class – but more COULD than I gave myself credit for – and I could do my level of Yoga (and still can, it’s a different level of yoga than it was then – but it is still just MY level of yoga)

It has been a long and continual journey around finding my way to Yoga. I’m actually really glad that I waited until I did. It meant I was in the right place at the right time when I was ready to be brave and now I am just so grateful.

So to me Yoga means strength – but surprisingly not just physical strength, but strength in my relationships with others, Strength in my belief in others and myself. I’ve never been stronger – inside or out.
