Student level

My first yoga-related memory was leaving my first vinyasa class in the UK as a youngster and being enthralled. Over a decade later, my enthusiasm for yoga is unfaltering. I delved further into the practice, beliefs and philosophy on trips to Nepal and India before completing teaching training.

I'm passionate about the way yoga can help with personal problems, health issues, elevate your mood and bring a calm state. The mindfulness aspect of the practice is what I found most beneficial. I aspire for my classes to be uplifting and increase your sense of self, leaving you with a smile and a slice of gratitude to finish!

Teaching & Certification

  • Grass Roots Yoga - 200 hours

Teaching Style

  • Adjustments/Assists: If I'm feeling great energy that day then yes, I enjoy passing that on.

  • Theming: Mindfulness.

  • Sequencing: Honestly, randomly. I wait for inspiration to come my way then adapt the sequence throughout the week depending on level, students, class style, etc.

  • Music: I have a plethora of music playlists depending on the mood, energy, feel, students, etc.

On & Off the Mat With: Carmelle Hutchinson

As a yoga teacher, what inspires and motivates your teaching?

Other teachers, their sequences and playlists and whatever I'm currently experiencing.

How has your own yoga practice evolved since becoming a teacher?

I've slowed down so much in my own practice, now leaning toward Slow Flow and Yin whereas I started out as being a lover of high heat and a powerful flow.

Do you have any yoga teachers that you admire and/or look up to? Who are they?

Sarah Metzger will eternally be an inspiration for her beautiful words, weaving mindfulness through the practice, her style of teaching and kind heart.

For those of us that haven't practiced with you before, what can we expect from your classes?

Mindfulness, energy, passion and calm enthusiasm. We'll always begin with grounding, slowly waking and warming up, flowing, there will always be at least one standing balance and we'll always finish with some juicy stretches.

What type of class could you teach all day, everyday and why?

Slow Flow because I could simply teach exactly how I wanted to practice and know that passion will reign supreme.

I aspire for my classes to be uplifting and increase your sense of self, leaving you with a smile and a slice of gratitude to finish!

Do you practice any other form of movement or fitness besides yoga? If so, what kind?

I'm always moving whether it be in the gym, running the Tan Track, or walking with my pup.

What's your go-to spot in Melbourne to get inspired?

I enjoy people watching from Entrécôte at the tan as well as a wander inside of the Botanical Gardens for some peace and nature.

Which 3 icons or figures would you want to sit next to at a dinner party and why?

Princess Diana, Gandhi and Jay Z.

Finish this sentence. "I feel the most like myself when..."

I'm in Byron Bay, sand beneath my feet and the most beautiful cotton candy sunset for my eyes to feast on. As cliché as that is!

And lastly because it's fun, what animal do you identify with?

A golden retriever :)
