Elicia Prophet

Massage Therapist *on Maternity leave*

Who I am…

Hey! I’m Elicia, a shiny new massage therapist here at Clarity!
I have a strong love for summery beach days! I live in the Adelaide hills with my dog, cat and chickens and my partner Mike. I love playing with home design, dancing and growing food. In my slower moments you will find me in front of the fire listening to a health related book or podcast.

 

Why do I massage…

I have always been interested in alternative treatments, from a young age I saw how my parents used different techniques to help or heal different ailments. Myself, I have found amazing relief of migraine and headaches by using massage, stretching techniques, acupuncture and kinesiology. This encouraged me to be more conscious of my body and to pass on the knowledge! This is what lit the fire inside me, to help others who may be suffering with pain or stress related issues. I also have a strong interest in energy and the affects thoughts and emotions can have on the body.

 

What I love to treat…

  • Head and neck (headaches + TMJ pain)
  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Legs and feet
  • Stress and anxiety

 

How I do it and what to expect…

My treatments will have a nurturing touch, light to medium pressure adjusted to suit each client. Consciously, I will treat muscles that may need relief by using:

  • Relaxation techniques
  • Trigger point
  • Deep tissue
  • Stretching and joint loosening

Elicia is currently on Maternity Leave, we look forward to welcoming her back in May 2021

Duncan Djukanovic

Yoga Teacher

Being a child of adoption, acceptance of others differences has always been prevalent in Duncan’s life. Knowing and understanding that we are all different human beings, although biologically constructed the same. We all have experienced life through completely different eyes, we all have bodies that work in different ways and emotions that no one else can comprehend.

 

 

From a strong sporting background, Duncan always set out to achieve at the highest level possible. But as his body succumbed to injuries, he became more humble and aware that our bodies are delicate as the world that surrounds us all. In 2016, yoga became a huge part of his life helping heal the physical and metal scars.

 

 

Duncan’s perspective of the energy that people are surrounded by is so important to the health and wellbeing of each individual. So by practicing yoga with those like minded souls creates the positive energy for the existential life force (Prana) which we all share and are made up from.

 

 

Duncan’s dharma or duty for life now, is to help teach, understand and enjoy all that yoga has to offer for the soul. To help enjoy life, by looking after the mind and body for the inevitable next step for the soul. Yoga will help prepare the soul for the next life. Life is a journey – & we all want a positive journey – yoga can assist this positivity.

 

 

Duncan teaches Soul Flow (Vinyasa Yoga) on Mondays at 8.00am.

Katie Jennings

Yoga Teacher

Katie first discovered restorative yoga when searching for ways to reduce her own anxiety and stress levels. Following only a couple of restorative yoga classes, she was surprised to find that she was sleeping better and able to navigate her way through each chaotic day without her usual frustrated outbursts, tears or withdrawal.

 

After attending classes for a while, she started looking into yoga teacher training. More than anything, Katie wanted to share these practices with others who could benefit from them as she had.

 

Katie feels the most satisfying part of teaching this style of yoga is when students tell her how peaceful they now feel, how much restful sleep they enjoy, and how they are better able to deal with the stresses of everyday life.

 

 

Katie teaches Restorative Yoga on Thursdays at 6.30pm.

Her classes are a dynamic mix of yoga + movement that both mindfully explore self inquiry and alternate perspectives on what could/ should feel good for you.
