His approach allows him to navigate a broad range of topics and modalities while drawing connections and offering profound insights into consciousness and the spiritual path. Anthony’s purpose is to awaken individuals to the power of the human soul and discover a life of true purpose and inspiration.

Anthony's message expresses a true wisdom that can only be accumulated by 18 years of experience on the path, complete with breakthroughs, mistakes, dead-ends, realisations, acceptance and joy for the profound journey of life.
Anthony regards himself as an eternal student but it is the role of awakener and educator that is apparent through the countless workshops, courses, retreats and events that he facilitates. He is a skilled presenter and speaker with an ability to articulately communicate concepts that ‘stick’ with the audience creating many ‘a-ha’ moments and genuine transformations that represent his unique gift.
As a certified life-coach, Anthony is also passionate about personal development and uses the tool of the Enneagram to support the removing of blocks and assist to inspire his clients to be the best version of themselves. Anthony has embraced the path of Tantra since 1999 and he draws on his extensive experience in this field in the teaching of Tantric sexuality.
After studying at university for six years and completing a Masters in Communications at Monash University in Melbourne, Anthony embarked on a global expedition travelling across the globe. Anthony’s life-long interest in mysticism dramatically intensified on a trip to India in 1999, where he began to practice yoga and meditation. This turning point led to a deeper spiritual integration and led to Anthony spending more than two years of his life in India. Anthony deeply immersed himself in the practice of yoga, meditation and studied numerous diverse paths and topics related to spirituality.
Anthony is also the Director of the Paradigm Shift Summit, which is a movement of socially and spiritually aware people who recognise that an awakening is occurring as humanity evolves to a higher more elevated level of consciousness. The Paradigm Shift movement is an expression of the goal of assisting humanity transform to a new level of awareness during this critical transition.
Anthony feels a deep gratitude to live as a spiritual practitioner. He enjoys communicating this critical message and continues to help inspire others to make choices to maximise their own happiness while developing the tranquility of inner peace, presence and true wisdom.Close
Inspirational Speaker, Facilitator, Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Nina Hansen has walked the spiritual path for over 18 years. Nina's profound wisdom and serenity captivates participants at the numerous workshops, retreats and courses that she leads. Nina's spiritual dedication and loving nature can be felt during the various teachings she offers that are flavoured by her gentle and soft teaching style. Compassion and tolerance are intrinsic components in her ability to convey the message of yoga and spirituality in a modern and contemporary approach.
Originally Norwegian, after studying and living in England and travelling extensively, Nina now calls Australia home and prefers the pristine beaches and warmer sub-tropical climate of the Sunshine Coast.
Nina has followed the Tantric path since 1999 and this focus is reflected in her teachings on Tantric sexuality, the awakening of the divine feminine and her skillful practice and transmission of the transforming practice of Tantric yoga. Nina’s path as a Tantric teacher is one of authenticity and integrity as she communicates this diverse and fulfilling path.
Nina embodies a sincere and mature attitude to genuine inner growth. This is reflected in her understanding that bringing spiritual practice into every moment of life by cultivating awareness is an essential quality to develop on the spiritual path. This ability to remain present is fundamental to expanding consciousness and is a constant reminder to embrace the journey of life and cherish each and every day.
As a truly gifted graphic designer, Nina runs her own thriving business – Nina Hansen Design where she uses her natural appreciation of aesthetics in a visual context. Nina has previously worked in some of the biggest and most successful design agencies around the world but now prefers the freedom and flexibility of her own business. Nina completed her studies in Visual Communications and the History of Art and Design in England. Nina is also an enthusiastic dancer and revels in the glitz, energy and flow of all things Latin dance.
It is perhaps fitting that her travels to India marked the beginning of Nina’s spiritual path. Nina was fascinated with the richness of Indian philosophy, specifically Tantra and quickly became absorbed by metaphysical and esoteric teachings. Her strong background in art, creativity and design gave Nina a deep appreciation of spiritual art, architecture and esoteric symbolism, all of which have an important role in the spiritual tradition of India.
Nina followed the calling of her soul to embark on the spiritual journey and search for happiness and true inner peace. After this beginning Nina spent extended periods in both India and Thailand practicing and studying this path of wisdom.
Nina has realised that the relentless pursuit of happiness was at the heart of human existence and yet this happiness is always within. The contentment we are all searching for is a deep inner peace and Nina lives each day through the understanding that happiness is a choice and we are the ones responsible for making that choice in each and every moment.Close
A holistic approach
Holistic Yoga & Meditation was born in 2006 with the Sun in Taurus providing a grounded approach, the ascendant in higher learning Sagittarius and the moon in harmonious Libra. Holistic Yoga & Meditation also has not one but two grand trines in the chart which is a highly auspicious configuration. In essence, Holistic yoga & Meditation is a unique spiritual school that offers both a diverse and comprehensive selection of pathways for personal growth and evolution.
A new consciousness
We recognise that humanity is undergoing a paradigm shift that is evolving the collective consciousness to a more spiritually based society.
This global transformation is expressed locally with the creation of a spiritual school that gives participants the necessary tools, knowledge and wisdom to experience the inner transformation that true evolution requires.
We have taken the mysticism of the east and blended it with the rationalism of the west to produce a style that is logical and coherent while remaining true to the timeless tradition of yoga and meditation.
This alignment with the science of the west and the wisdom of the east fuses profoundly to produce a powerful and insightful system of yoga and meditation.
A holistic approach
However, we understand that many different approaches can be taken to increase your well-being and accelerate your evolution.
For this reason we offer a holistic approach combining yoga, meditation, deep relaxation, the energising of the 7 chakras, positive affirmations, astrology, diet, Ayurveda, music, life coaching and mentoring, Tantra and the use of sexual energy as well as the Enneagram which is a profound personal development tool to rapidly increase self-awareness.
The outcome of this holistic integration of the varying aspects for growth results is that those seeking inner transformation will have the opportunity to discover a path that works for them to reach their true potential.
A format that suits you
Our teaching format comprises a multitude of various yoga workshops, Tantra workshops, yoga retreats, personal development workshops, meditation courses, yoga classes, personal coaching and mentoring sessions as well as our online offerings which are an ongoing work in progress.
Spirituality that reflects our time
We offer a contemporary approach in our style of teaching. This gives a fresh, dynamic and alive feeling to the path of inner growth and spirituality for the 21st century.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our knowledge of yoga, meditation and personal development to enhance your well-being and improve the quality of your life.
Join us for a life-changing experience

On arrival to this retreat, I broke down in tears in my room. I felt overwhelmed and stressed about my day-to-day life. After my weekend of yoga, meditation, goal setting and assessing my values and goals, I’m ready to start over, fresh and be positive. Live in the moment. Thank you Anthony and Nina and all the wonderful people I’ve met this weekend.Lisa
