Bringing Brisbane Together with Affordable Yoga and Fitness for Everyone

Our mission is to educate and guide families to be fit, healthy and happy through exercise, relaxation and nutrition.

We understand how hard it is to find time for SELF, to keep fit, healthy and happy in between school drop off, work, house and after school activities.

Living a healthy, happy lifestyle is important to us, because we want our children to grow up with this instilled in them, that this is the way life is.

We have been offering small group classes, teaching to the individual since 2012 in Holland Park, Brisbane. At One Family Yoga & Fitness, we design each class for EVERYBODY no matter how big or small.

If you think that you can’t do yoga or fitness classes because you’re not flexible enough, not fit enough, don’t have time, too old, young, big, small or injured, THINK AGAIN! We promise you that you will leave our classes feeling great – body, mind and spirit.

We also offer a range of Yoga Teacher Trainings, whether it is just for your own personal development or you want a change in career and want to teach yoga we have you covered.

Lainie Jenkins

Yoga, Reformer, Yoga Teacher Trainer

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 GOLD 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.

Katie Penley - Yoga (of all ages)

Experience/ Accreditation

  • Yoga Practitioner since 2009

  • Completed Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher Training

Katie Penley

Yoga Teacher

Katie began practicing yoga in 2009. I went along to a vinyasa class in the gym I attended. I was blown away by the impact simple movement with breath had on the body and the mind. From then I was hooked! I never missed my Friday morning yoga class and started to go to classes outside of the gym and develop my home practice.

Being the nerdy person that I am, I was hungry to read all the books I could on philosophy, alignment and yoga research. At the time I was studying to be a primary school teacher and thought yoga would be an amazing asset to kids. Imagine a world where all children learn about peace and mindfulness! I attended Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher training and knew from the first 2 minutes that I was changing my path to become a yoga teacher. I learned every style of yoga I could, with training in kids, teens, partner/ community, flow and restorative yoga.

Teaching yoga has taken me on the most amazing journey, I have met people from all over the world and created beautiful friendships with so many students who over the years become family. I love the way you feel after practicing yoga. The soft floaty bliss that comes from mindful movement and focus. And my favourite moment in each yoga class is the sweet bliss I see on the happy faces of people waking up from savasana. It is such a joy and a privilege to hold space for our community.

Suzanne Edwards

Yoga Teacher

Suz’s caring nature and genuine willingness to help those around her has always drawn her to professions that assist others. She has always been fascinated with Science and the Human Body and holds a keen interest in complementary modalities as part of her overall health and wellbeing regime.

Having practised yoga since 2011, Suz commenced yoga teacher training originally out of personal interest rather than through any intention to teach.

Yoga had supported her holistically in the past, and she was intrigued by the restorative benefits it gave her in this modern world. Shortly after commencing her studies Suz developed a strong desire to gain the tools required to share Yoga with others. Since qualifying as a Yoga Teacher, Suz has sought to further expand her knowledge to enable her to bring Yoga to a wider audience including Yoga Nidra, Yoga for Older Grown-ups, Restorative Yoga, Pre & Post Natal Yoga and Trauma Sensitive Yoga. She sees herself as a lifetime student and acknowledges the importance of continued education. Her inclusive teaching environment incorporates Hatha Yoga as she strives to create an environment within her classes where students can reconnect with their mind, body and breath with the objective of leaving energised and refreshed.

She loves that she can teach others to nurture their bodies and share her love of joyful movement.

  • Yoga Level 1

Shannon Power

Yoga, Kids, Teen, Family Yoga Instructor

I have been practicing yoga for 5 years and teaching since 2018. I found yoga whilst healing from a car accident and in attempting to heal the body I found a beautiful way of separating from the stressors of everyday life.

I did my Yoga Teacher Training with Lainie at OFYF and fell in love with the studio and Lainie’s style of teaching to the individual in front of you.

I love meeting students that are apart of the One Family community. They are such amazing, friendly students, willing to have a giggle mid-class. I have been blessed to also teach kids (kids, tween and teen yoga classes) and family yoga classes at One Family. The kids’ classes focus on building the skills of yoga, such as balance, body awareness, teamwork and mindfulness through fun yoga games for each age group. The family classes build all of these skills with an emphasis on fun family time.

I hope to see you or your family at one of these classes!

I found my love for Reformer after having my two little ones – it’s my new found passion! Pilates goes hand in hand with my love for dancing that began when I was a child. I love helping out people with their practice and bringing a touch of the dance world into my teachings.
