About Meredith Starck
maintained a strong interest in health and fitness since her teenage
years when she began practicing yoga in daily life. Growing up
between Canada, the Caribbean, and North Queensland and with Canadian and Dutch Indonesian parents she absorbed an
early appreciation of the taste of foods from a diversity of
cultures. In the early 1980ís as a young adult she set out to
explore the world. She went to Washington D.C. where she opened a
catering business called Contempoary Cuisine. Her food caught
on and soon was in demand with a number of high profile clients.
These included corporations, embassies, the arts community, and even
the White House.
"Becoming a yoga teacher is a small part of the journey. I have been given amazing opportuinities to continue to grow and develop a practice. My teaching took a radical change with my ongoing Scaravelli training under Diane Long and Paddy Mcgrath, both master teachers.
Elemental practice in nature is an essential part of my teaching. Each class offers a new guided experience. For over a decade I have taught Dawn Yoga on The Strand Headland overlooking the ocean.
For many years I have also taught a chair based yoga class at the Townsville Womens Center offering all women access to a broader holistic practice. It is conducted beneath four grand mango trees, and is one of my special places.
I teach weekly chakra yoga flow classes at Belama House on Magnetic Island.
Several times each year I facilitate holistic retreats in wonderful natural spaces.
I feel blessed to have been born from a mother who encouraged me to follow your dreams, to honour who you are and to love .
