Simone Skinner-Smith is ‘The Mobile Yogi’. Since 2012 she has been bringing yoga far and wide thanks to her Vespa ‘Bluey’. Simone has held group yoga classes in-store at Lulu Lemon, at preschools, corporate boardrooms and even the forecourt of The Museum of Sydney. And she has held private yoga classes for everyone from busy mums and dads to international celebrities. She initiated the popular ‘Yoga in The Garden’ classes at The Grounds of Alexandria and the free ‘Yoga for Endo’ classes which lead to ‘Luminosity’ the annual yoga event with Endometriosis Australia.
Simone has been featured in Women’s Health Magazine and Girlfriend Magazine promoting health and wellness through yoga. She has strong connections with the Media Industry, previously working as the Editor of Girl Power magazine and Little Angel magazine for ‘tween girls. She has worked behind-the-scenes on many Australian TV programs like Better Homes and Gardens, Gogglebox and Saturday Disney. She has also appeared on-camera as a snow reporter for Channel 10’s National News, FUEL TV and Fox Sports News.
She is passionate about sharing her love of yoga with people of all ages and experiences. Simone is also a proud (and tired!) mum of two boys. On her experiences with endometriosis and Endometriosis Australia Simone has said endometriosis has to be one of the most frustrating conditions a female can endure. A broad range of painful and debilitating symptoms, no long-lasting treatments and, until recently, very little understanding from the wider community.
“For me, yoga was what got me through the mental and emotional pain and frustration that comes with this. As a yoga instructor I have been passionate about being able to share this knowledge with other women through the help of Endometriosis Australia and our Luminosity Yoga Events which are entering their sixth year.”
