Siri and gus at The Body Tree

Gus Simonovic and Siri Embla and have a lifelong love for yoga, healing and arts.  They did our Yoga training in India at Shri Kali Ashram dedicated to teach Yoga in the classical tradition based on the knowledge from the Vedas.

They are passionate about holistic wellbeing and teach from the knowledge that the body, given space, has astonishing self-balancing capabilities. They facilitate that space, creating nurturing and comfortable sessions where your body can stretch while your mind goes into deep relaxation and meditation.

Siri Embla is a certified HypnoBirthing® instructor, qualified massage and aromatherapist (dip) as well as a Reiki master. She did her training at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies and graduated in 2009. Her Reiki grandmaster is Sandra Daubney. She is also a dancer/actor and performance artist working freelance on various projects.
Gus Simonovic gives massages, reflexology sessions, reiki treatments, ayurvedic walking massages. He has trained and practiced around the world including Phenkhae Thai Massage School and the Siam Healing Centre. Gus is also a performance poet, public speaker, producer, MC and an event organizer.
