Craig Gowan


Registered T5T® Instructor. MBA. Management & Training Consultant. Cert IV Workplace Training & Assessment.

My interest in T5T® has been fuelled by 8 years of yoga practice, all of which I enjoyed, but none of which gave me the energy boost I was after. T5T® provides me with the energy I need to easily cope with the challenges of work and personal life. It gives me more focus, the stamina for long days training, and the calmness to enjoy even the most draining situations - all for 10 minutes a day!! Nothing else can give me this boost.

Learning T5T® could not have come at a better time for me. I first experienced T5T® two years ago, and found that it filled an enormous void in my personal experience.

I run my own Management and Training Consultancy, and often spend my days working with large and small businesses to improve their management and leadership capabilities. I rely on my Masters Degree in Business Administration and Certificate in Workplace Training for my work - which involves talking to people about Management theory and practical issues, often for days at a time. This requires lots of energy and stamina, and I draw from T5T® to give me this.

I play A-Grade cricket, golf, train a rugby league team, and have recently completed my T5T® Teacher training. I am now a very dedicated T5T® Instructor, and work with individuals, private groups, run public programs, and blend T5T® into my corporate training.

I am willing to travel to any parts of Sydney and its surrounds, including the Central Coast, the Mountains, or the Illawarra. I look forward to working with people to change and energise their lives.

Kathryn (Kat) Hopkins


Registered T5T® Instructor, Jazz Singer & Performer

I was introduced to T5T® by my sister and a Reiki practitioner visiting from India at a turning point in my life. I began practising the rites on a daily basis. As a result, my energy and zest for life began to increase and surpass where I was previously. I started to feel much stronger in body and mind, more centered and at peace. I decided to cross the Tasman and attend Carolinda's Instructor Training course and haven't looked back since.

I am excited to be the very first T5T® certified instructor in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and to carry the flame back to the home land. I’m very much looking forward to making T5T® accessible to as many people as possible on both the North and South Islands.

What I love about T5T® is the attention to safety and focus on protecting the spine. It works on building and strengthening core stability, working from the inside first. The postures are broken down so that they can be done by people at beginner levels through to advanced and no equipment necessary.

The awareness to breathing unique to T5T® can be used at any time of the day as well as part of a daily routine. Great for quick refresh at lunch time.

Currently working full time, I am available for one on one sessions weeknights and weekends, small groups and workshops.

Nancy Zevely


T5T® Instructor Trainer, Bikram & Hatha Yoga Instructor, Remedial Massage Therapist, CST (Circular Strength Training) Instructor, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy Practitioner, Demartini Method Facilitator Journey Accredited Practitioner, Reiki I & II

T5T® is an easy and powerful exercise routine that only reveals its true effectiveness when undertaken. It cannot be described adequately in words. Within a week of commencement my mind was clearer, my energy more constant and my sense of purpose more defined. Powerful and subtle stuff. Nancy is an engaging and lively teacher. Peter Hagerty, Founder, The Source Foundation.

My purpose is based around education - especially through physical empowerment in joining ancient wisdom with modern technology. T5T® fits into this perfectly and I look forward to sharing it with you!

Marija Sutich


Registered T5T® Instructor

I had the opportunity to do my T5T® Instructor's course with Carolinda Witt in Sydney who developed T5T , the modified version of original Rites. I must say it was an amazing experience I am excited to introduce other New Zealanders to these amazing 5 Postures.

I am a widow of 5 years with 3 beautiful children: My daughters Lijana and Vanja, my son James and gorgeous grand daughter Savanna. I have been an active person competing competitively in athletics (sprinting), played netball for many years and generally kept myself fit. Unfortunately around 11 years ago I developed bad pain and stiffness in both my neck and back, for which I was told there was nothing that could be done for it except cortisone injections which I was getting on a regular basis.

It is almost 10 years now since I discovered the 5 Rites by chance. While visiting a Wellness Centre for my recurring neck and back pain - an advert in a magazine for a book called "The Fountain of Youth" by Peter Kelder caught my eye. Naturally I sent away for it and what a life saver! I cannot begin to explain how wonderful it was to get back my full mobility in both my neck and back. Doing the 5 Rites has not only made me more supple than I was 10 years ago, I am pain free! (no more cortisone injections for me!) What amazed me was how quickly I began experiencing results.

I also believe doing the daily 5 Rites gave me internal strength to help deal with the painful loss of my beloved husband Jim with whom I'd been with since the age of 18.

Recently I introduced my sister Elaine to T5T® who has been suffering with painful hips, she too is marvelling at the results she is experiencing after only such a short time.

I decided to become an Instructor as I want others too to experience the wonderful benefits from these 5 simple, but powerful postures.

Catherine Gross


Registered T5T® Instructor. Film Technician.

Working 10 hours a day on film sets is tiring & stressful. I had real concerns about the long drives I had to take as I would often fall asleep at the wheel. Sometimes I was so tired I would nod off on the way to work. Since taking up T5T® I have no such worries any more. I sleep better & wake refreshed. T5T® sets me up like nothing else & a quick session at the end of the day lets me drive with confidence. It really is a life saver!

Nearly 30 years in the film industry can really take its toll. Long hours, tough locations, mental stress and egos all work to tire you out.

T5T® has given me the extra energy required to be able to continue working for more years than I would have imagined. With an average 12 hour day I don't have time to exercise! This is why I want to pass on the fabulous benefits of this program.

I will teach individuals or small groups at whatever location suits, evenings or weekends, and am happy to travel anywhere to help others discover T5T®.

Bryn Wackett


Registered T5T® Instructor. Dancer & AISTD Certified Dance Teacher

Being a full time dancer for the past 15 years, I have chosen to use a variety of yoga methods as well as Pilates & Feldenkrais method towards injury prevention & sustaining strength & flexibility throughout my career. I came across T5T® in 2004 via my chiropractor, Kathrine Harrison, who suggested I learn to teach it so I could then teach her patients that were in need of learning it. What a lovely surprise it has been to find that I can do this regularly on my own without my huge ongoing costs of yoga and Pilates classes or the disappointment experienced if my schedule didn’t fit in with class times! I still go to yoga and Pilate’s classes occasionally and I haven’t had any injuries since doing T5T®!

My entire career has been dance orientated. Whether re-training, choreographing, performing or teaching my love of movement. Music and creative expression has taken me interstate and overseas throughout the past 13 years. I am an AISTD qualified classical ballet teacher with many years in a contemporary dance background. Yoga and Pilates have proven to be an important part of my chosen career. I created and formulated a dance program that is now taught in public schools in NSW, Australia. Its primary focus is creativity, self-expression, safe dance techniques and healthy self-esteem for all infants and primary school age groups.

I feel that T5T® is not only for people who have decided to rejuvenate themselves and increase their fitness level – it is a tremendous tool for the already fit. As a maintenance and body awareness program, it has the added benefits of mental clarity and spiritual accessibility that one can bring to one's self.

Bratislav Petrovic


Electronics Engineer, Registered T5T® instructor, Gita International Diploma of Teaching Hatha Yoga, Reiki master, Inner Peace Meditation Teacher.

I had my ear drum damaged and felt realty dizzy when I had to spin during dancing. Around 4 years ago I learnt The Five Rites. Having done the Rites for a few weeks I went to a park with my kids who persuaded me to go on a swing. I started slowly and discovered that I could once again enjoy the swing and later on to even dance. I’ve been doing the Five Rites daily since then.

I started my spiritual development by learning Transcendental Meditation in 1987 after finishing my degree in Applied Electronics. I have done the Gita Yoga International Diploma of teaching Hatha Yoga, and a few self development courses with Michael Roland Domeyko and Ian Gawler. In order to help my family and friends I became a Reiki Master. My thirst for knowledge and self development led me to the Inner Peace Pty. Ltd, where I finished the Meditation Teacher Training.

When I found out about the T5T® Exercise program I was happy to be able to offer people an efficient 10 minute exercise program that can change their lives in many ways.

I facilitate workshops for groups or individuals privately if that is preferred. I am in Melbourne and can travel all over the country to help as many people as possible. Just contact me and we'll arrange a suitable appointment.

Di Mace


Registered T5T® Instructor. Marketing Consultant & former Fitness Instructor

Having taught fitness for nearly 20 years, when I first saw T5T® I clearly recognised it as the next wave of exercise – with enormous potential for improved physical health and remedial core stability work. In my first 2 hour lesson of T5T® I also had the sense of knowing that T5T® could provide an essential touchstone in people’s lives, and a powerful change-tool. It’s the holistic aspects of T5T® that make it a modern way of exercise for living now. It’s a life-skill that you learn today, and use for life. But at its fundamental core, the power of T5T® is its simplicity and suitability for everyone, any-age.

For almost 20 years I’ve had a long-standing affair with teaching. As a registered Fitness Instructor I taught part-time throughout my corporate management career, and both pregnancies. Through this experience I truly understand the meaning of ‘teaching’ versus ‘showing’ people an exercise, how to explain and attain the correct posture and form, as well as delving into the deeper, subtler side of exercise.

Again in the field of fitness, since motherhood I’ve also trained as a children’s yoga teacher, which adds another dimension to my teaching abilities. Most recently I’ve been an 'almost' full-time domestic engineer for the past few years, with some freelance marketing consultant work sprinkled throughout to keep the mind active.

I’m now actively teaching T5T® privately, at general workshops and corporate functions widely throughout Sydney.

Through teaching T5T® I’m able to actively work at something that inspires my passion in life, gives me bliss, as well as helping people move their lives in a positive flow of prosperity and personal power.

Dracaena Brunt


Registered T5T® Instructor, Barrister LLB (Hons) Mediator, Yoga Teacher (BSYA & BWY), Stott Pilates Instructor, Reiki, Indian Head Massage

To function well in the world you need to function well in mind, body and spirit.

I am a mother of 3 children. This is my son Cameron and I doing Rite No 5. My career path started in a very conservative conventional environment - law. I came to a cross roads in my life where I could make the decision to carry on the same path, or to follow my heart. At this stage I had taken up yoga and after several years I followed my heart and passion and started teaching Astanga Vinyasa Yoga in England. I could see the changes it made to people's lives. I then added to my knowledge by going through Stott Pilates Teacher Training. Both modalities coming together, connecting mind, body and spirit.

I am inspired to teach T5T® for many reasons - it encompasses yoga and Pilates, healing and rejuvenation. It empowers the sincere student on many levels. Having a body that feels fantastic, needing a minimum amount of time a day to practice - incredibly uplifting, and connecting well with the breath - the life force. Bringing lightness, renewed energy, greater calmness & clarity of mind. The breath cleans & purifies at a deep level. Try it - take that leap you will be amazed!

Gill Stapleton


General Manager- Healthcare, Registered T5T® Instructor

Leading a hectic corporate life and being a Mum to teenagers, T5T® has allowed me to have time in the day for me . It is not always easy to get to the gym, but there is always 10 -15 mins to enjoy the peace that T5T® brings to my day. The renewed energy and sense of well being has improved my eating patterns and increased my energy. Now I have members of my sales team and my daughter doing T5T®. Its infectious! Learning T5T®, and consequently teaching T5T® has added a sense of calm and balance to my life. I can take my T5T® with me when ever I travel and I can always find the time to fit it into my daily schedule.

I first read about T5T® in a magazine and decided to find out more. As General Manager for an international health company, I enjoy good health and exercise regularly. A mum of two great teenagers and a former high school teacher, I enjoy sharing this great program with individuals. Having shared it with some of my team in the work place, it has allowed a sense of openness and authenticity to our daily work patterns. Under stress we remind ourselves to use the energy breathing. I achieve immense satisfaction from making a difference in peoples lives.


Lynda Santich


Registered T5T® Instructor. Pre-School Teacher, Entrepreneur & Mother of four children.

My chiropractor recommended that I learn T5T® to improve my health. I used to experience a feeling that I couldn't breathe before learning the Energy Breathing method in T5T®. The very first moment I started practising it, I felt that I could at last draw a full breath. This was a very rewarding experience for me. Within 3 months of practising T5T® I was able to give up my use of Ventolin. My constant neck pain has completely cleared up and I feel stronger physically and mentally than I have for years. I am now a Certified T5T® Teacher and teach my chiropractor's patients T5T®!

I am a T5T® teacher; a mother of four; a pre-school teacher with 25 years experience and I assist my husband with running his herbal medicine practice. Being involved in the health industry has enabled me to seek out many alternatives to improve my health and well-being, but none have been as profound as practising T5T® daily.

The health benefits for me personally have been enormous; increased flexibility, stronger neck, back and abdominals, huge improvements in my breathing patterns, and increased mental clarity and focus. I believe T5T® is the perfect complement to any health care system that people may have already chosen.

I became interested in teaching T5T® from experiencing and seeing the rewards in myself and others. It’s great to be able to pass on such valuable information to people that they can use for life. I teach privately, in small groups and in larger workshops. For me travelling to teach T5T® is not a problem - it’s an adventure!

Terez Maru


Registered T5T® Instructor. Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist & Bowen Technique.

For many years I have experienced ringing in the ears (tinnitus). As you can imagine this is very annoying & disorientating. Since I started practicing T5T® this has completely disappeared! I am a yoga teacher and a massage therapist and I recommend T5T® to all my clients. In fact I have just trained as a Certified T5T® Teacher as I can attest to its powerful benefits, physically, mentally and spiritually.

I have been a massage & Bowen therapist since 1992. My interest in body work and a genuine concern for my clients led me to learn to teach yoga - so that I could help them on the road to recovery with their injuries and ongoing aches and pains.

A lot of them simply do not have the time to spend an hour or so practicing yoga. So when I told them that T5T® is only 5 postures; takes just 10 mins a day and they won’t have to attend a class every week - they all asked me to teach them. It was the answer they were looking for!

I teach T5T® privately in small groups of one or two at my practice in Double Bay, Sydney. I love teaching T5T® and seeing how people improve their lives in so many ways.

Libby Ross


Registered T5T® Instructor & Registered Osteopath

As an osteopath I was looking for an exercise routine that incorporated mind, body and spirit - something that was going to give me energy, strength and flexibility. I spend a lot of time bending over a bench and need good core stability to support my lower back, and T5T® has given me this.

As an osteopath I see many people injure themselves doing exercise they are not in condition for. However, what I like about T5T® is that it is a gradual step by step program, taught safely and under close supervision. This enables gradual strength, flexibility, and core stability to develop.

The breathing and relaxation techniques compliment the rites and provide a solid platform for increased body and mind connection. These benefits combined with the ancient wisdom make T5T® a powerful daily ritual and I recommend it to all my patients and anyone who wants improved health and vitality.

Jillian Naidu


Registered T5T® Instructor, Graduate Certificate NLP

Prior to discovering T5T® I had suffered from long term back pain due to an injury. I had attended physiotherapy, Pilates and hydrotherapy for several years and yet was unable to recover fully from my back weakness. Now not only has my physical strength and flexibility improved greatly, I also find the breathing to be energizing and rejuvenating allowing me to embrace challenges and function at an optimal level. 

Until T5T® there were no exercises imaginable that were able to help my chronic back problem. T5T® was the only one to work.

T5T® is more than a simple and effective combination of exercises. This daily sequence is simple and easy to remember providing me with the vitality, clarity, energy and motivation needed to survive a high powered city existence.

I have always worked in areas where my passion lies & T5T® is one of them. When Carolinda first suggested training in T5T® there was no hesitation. Although I already guide people through a process to improve their physical and mental well being - T5T® approached this from a different angle – it helped me back into the office!

I now manage a business in NLP Process Orientated Coaching; teach people T5T® and i am a sign language interpreter. It is due to T5T® that I have the energy to breeze through all my varying occupations. Teaching T5T® goes well with my NLP - I see someone a few times and the beneficial patterns are theirs for a life time.

I know through experience how difficult it can be to fit an exercise program into your existing schedule. T5T® is a 10 minute programme that is so worthwhile and achievable no matter your age or level of fitness.

I am now available to teach T5T® in Kangaroo Valley, NSW and can travel to surrounding areas for workshops, corporate bookings or to teach you in the privacy of your own home.

Natalie Wareham


Corporate Trainer, Registered T5T® Instructor, Occupational Therapy & Holistic Kinesiology

T5T® is a simple and invigorating set of exercises which improve physical and mental well-being. The very nature of the exercises and the teaching will enable anyone to increase their physical strength and joint mobility. The inclusion of breathing exercises not only assists in the movement of Qi and meridian (life) energy but also in stress reduction and quieting the mind. The end result is daily balance and stability – the best combination for health and well-being.

I love my T5T® as I feel it is an amazing compliment to my and my client’s busy lifestyles. I am a qualified and experienced Occupational Therapist and Holistic Kinesiologist. I run my own practice where I assist clients to make the changes that will enable them to gain more from life, work and health. I lecture in Kinesiology and well-being and provide a variety of stress management and well-being services which include T5T® to workplaces.

As well as teaching T5T® Corporately, I also teach T5T® privately to individuals and small groups.

Libby Weston


Registered T5T® Instructor, Certified Fitness Instructor, Network Pilates Instructor, Body Balance Instructor, Slim Body4life Instructor, My Health Yoga Teacher, Owner of BODY IQ HOLISTIC FITNESS a Yoga/Pilates Boutique Studio on the Gold Coast

I would highly recommend T5T® to any yoga/Pilates teacher who is wanting to either increase their income and client base or provide a 'value add' to their existing clients.

As a teacher of Yoga/Pilates and studio owner, I was very thankful to learn that Carolinda had developed her T5T® Five Tibetan Exercise and Breathing Program.

I had discovered the benefits of the 'Rites' some years ago and had personally been practicing the 'original rites' as part of my own daily practice for many years. As a teacher and business owner I rarely found time to attend class to nurture myself....so the 'Rites' were perfect.

Over time I endeavoured to share the principals of 'the Rites' with clients - however, I struggled with effectively communicating the fundamentals to them - particularly as many carried injuries or had physical of emotional challenges.

When I discovered Carolinda 's T5T® program I was relieved, as it took all the worry out of it - by safely, effectively and systematically delivering the principals in an professional but easy, duplicatible, 'step-by-step' format.

T5T® allows the absolute beginner as well as my advanced clients to discover the rejuvenating benefits of the 'Rites' in just one workshop!

From a business perspective - by being affiliated with T5T® and receiving client referrals - I have not only generated another source of income, but have also grown my own studio client base. - with many T5T® clients becoming motivated to participate in other classes. I feel assured that I am delivering a quality program, with professional 'take home' support material; that is backed by a 100% money back guarantee.

I am a mother of four, and have been practicing and teaching yoga for a combined 15 years. I am passionate about sharing mind/body modalities with everyone, as I believe them to have been my saving grace, when my own health was challenged.

I discovered The Tibetan Five Rites four years ago, and added it to my personal daily repertoire and am extremely excited to be sharing these ancient secrets of the Tibetan monks with everyBODY!!

I've been doing T5T® every day for the last 3 years. I've lost 7 kilos in weight and it stays off without any additional effort!! I've got so much more energy and I feel better all-round. I am less stressed, happy and able to plan my days better. The stiffness in my fingers is much better - almost non-existent. My friends are always saying how much better I look!

Susan Jensen


Registered Nurse, T5T® Registered Instructor, Bowen Therapist, Accredited Satyananda Yoga Teacher.

I stumbled upon The Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation 5 years ago. At that time I was suffering from chronic back pain and despite regular yoga practice and specific back exercises my recovery was slow and tenuous. I am convinced that my daily practice of the rites led to my recovery. Part of the beauty and appeal of the practice lies in its simplicity, it is true that often the simple things in life create the most positive change.

After 12 months of daily practice I was so committed to the rites I wanted to share the benefits with others. This led to my qualifying as a teacher of T5T®.

I am an accredited teacher of Satyananda Yoga. T5T® begins my regular daily sadhana. I believe it enhances every aspect of life; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

After more than 4 years of practicing the rites the benefits continue to unfold and I am still amazed; there is no end point.

My background in the health industry is as a registered nurse, natural therapist and yoga teacher. I am committed to good health through a natural approach to eating, exercise and a simple lifestyle.

I offer regular weekend and mid-week workshops throughout the year in a tranquil coastal setting.

Leanne Edwards


T5T® Registered Instructor, Holistic Life Consultant, Business Owner.

Thanks to Carolinda's integrity, thorough research, her life experiences and her ability to share her many gifts I have found my T5T® Teacher Training to be one of the most comprehensive units of learning and practice that I have undertaken to date. I have found that the knowledge gained from my T5T® Teacher Training has filled in a number of gaps that I still had with relation to my yoga practice and I now not only have the confidence to share T5T® with others but I have also a step-by-step guide on how to promote and manage my new business.

Born and raised in the far north of New Zealand with the ocean, forests, farmlands and native bush on her doorstep Lea grew up to become an avid horse rider, hiker and ocean sports enthusiast. With a degree in Travel and Tourism and experience in Banking, Hotel & Catering and Travel Consultancy Lea left NZ on her great OE for a year or two back in 1989 . . . After a six month overland journey with Encounter her passion for travel in developing countries was awakened and she proceeded to lead treks and expeditions throughout Asia, Africa, Middle East and South America for the next 6 ½ years.

In 1998 Lea and her partner took a break from the road and submerged themselves in the Lower Zambezi Valley, Zambia where they spent 3 years managing luxury safari lodges prior to entering the wide world of Conservation. With funding through the Danish Embassy Lea with her partner developed and expanded Conservation Lower Zambezi, an NGO that assisted Govt with wildlife and habitat protection through anti-poaching and Environmental Education. This led to their next posting with African Parks Network managing Omo National Park, 4100 sq kms of wilderness in Southern Ethiopia.

Having stepped out of Africa 18 months ago Lea now walks the world both as a freelance guide and working as a Holistic Life Consultant teaching; yoga, T5T, conscious living and practising shamanism.

My own T5T® and yoga practice supported me through one of the toughest journeys of my life and the time has come for me to start sharing these powerful tools with others. At the moment my work is taking me between the northern and southern hemispheres with the changes of the seasons. I am happy to work anywhere at any time with individuals, couples, families or groups so long as there is space in my diary and a means to get me to your doorstep or a suitable location somewhere in between.

If you are interested in bringing change to your life and need some help to find the space to do so you are welcome to contact me to discuss options.

Tory Davidson


Registered T5T® Instructor, Holistic Kinesiologist, Skin Therapist

Several years ago a close friend gave me a gift of the T5T® book by Carolinda Witt. Having practiced Yoga, Body Balance and being an ardent walker for most of my adult life, I did question if T5T® would benefit me any more than my already passionate practices. However, I did occasionally struggle with lower back and neck issues, so I decided to try it, and was amazed at the results. I found that my stress levels and emotions became more balanced, my energy levels increased, my mind clearer and my physical body seemed to be functioning better than ever.

As a mother of three adult boys, married to a farmer on the land, along with a large garden and being in Clinic, makes for a full week, yet with T5T® it all seems to flow beautifully.

What I love about T5T® are the warm-ups and gradual progression and precautions of each pose to strengthen all areas, and thus preventing any strain or compression issues. This along with Core Stability and the power of Energy Breathing makes it a complete life-style routine. T5T® works on the being as a whole, Mind, Body and Spirit, with Affirmations and Elemental relationship to each pose and harmoniously stimulating the energetic centres (Chakras) by circulating the Chi.

I have found T5T® to be rejuvenating to my whole being and wanted to share this with others, which led me to the Instructor Training.

As a practicing Holistic Kinesiologist, I found many people are struggling not only with structural imbalances but more so with their emotional and spiritual imbalances as well.

My purpose is to make a difference, by introducing T5T® and Energy Breathing, empowering people to have control of their own life by creating balance and well-being.

As an Instructor I am offering Private, Small Groups and Corporate Workshops in and around the Young District, South West N.S.W.

Inclusive with each workshop will be a T5T® (The Five Tibetan Rites & Energy Breathing - by Carolinda Witt) book and Audio CD.

Karen Bayly


Registered T5T® Instructor, PhD Zoology, Certificate IV in Training & Assessment

I learned T5T® four years ago at a time when I was dealing with a significant loss and, unknowingly, about to face another one. T5T® grounded me and gave me the strength and energy to do more than just get through the pain and confusion. It also gave me the stamina and courage to reassess my whole life and make a new beginning.

T5T® is more than just a physical discipline - for those who wish to explore its many layers, it can offer so much more. It will teach you a great deal about yourself.

I'm is not currently taking T5T® students due to personal reasons which prevent me from devoting my full attention to teaching. However, T5T® has so many other wonderful instructors, you are spoiled for choice!

Jenna Clarke


Registered T5T® Instructor, SolomonYogalates Instructor, Bachelor of Education, Certificate 4 in Training Small Groups

Some days I teach 4 classes a day and find it hard to fit in a personal practice. That is how I found T5T® . It gives me the energy I need to teach. Since I have been practicing T5T® I have noticed that I get more things done. I don't procrastinate and I feel a greater sense of well-being.

My aim is to teach people skills to help them achieve health and a positive sense of self worth and T5T® is a tool and a practice that I am honoured to be able to teach others.

Five years ago I returned from a 4 year stint overseas. I had been suffering from anxiety quite badly and was lucky enough to attend a seminar that Deepak Chopra was running in Switzerland. He was a major advocate for yoga so I decided that when I returned home to Australia I would live beside the sea and begin to practice yoga. I began practicing and gained profound benefits which included an improvement in self esteem, giving up my addictions and a dramatic reduction in anxiety. The benefits were so significant that I decided to move to Byron Bay and study to become a Solomon Yogalates teacher. Again I observed people gaining great benefits.

Master Personal Trainer, Registered T5T® Instructor, NLP Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Change Consultant.

I thought I had enough things to do to maintain my health without adding yoga to my routine. Then I tried T5T® . It's amazingly simple, time effective and powerful. I noticed increased energy, greater flexibility and mental clarity. For me, the whole system including the energy breathing, really feels like it's having a big impact on my internal health. Now T5T® is the first thing I do every day. That says it all.

I have been in the health and fitness industry for 25 years and have owned and operated my own personal training business for the last 16 years. If you are interested in taking your health to a new level, gaining more energy and mental clarity, as well as reducing body fat and toning up then please call me. I will be happy to give you a free introductory consultation.

Fitness and well-being have always been important to me. I had been going to the gym and swimming pool for a number of years and, as much as I enjoyed that, I started to feel restricted and stressed by a schedule influenced by avoidance of crowd and traffic. When I heard Carolinda Witt talking about "just 10 minutes a day for health, vitality and well-being," I was absolutely delighted and decided to learn T5T®.

Since then, my lower back has greatly improved, my bowel movement is more regular, my bladder is better controlled. I somewhat get the feeling that my spine is defying gravity.

About twenty years ago my life path significantly changed when I had a car accident. My recovery was hastened by various alternative healing therapies, which prompted me to eventually study Aromatherapy Massage, Bowen, Deep Tissue Massage, Hypnotherapy, Counselling, to enable me to assist people on their recovery path as well as increase their awareness of the body, mind and spirit connection. T5T® is a modality that embraces all those aspects.

And what's 10 minutes a day for "health, vitality and well-being" in the privacy of your home, any time of the day?

Registered T5T® Instructor, Yoga Teacher, Dip Sales & Marketing, Certificate in Negotiation & Conflict Resolution

I have been delighted in the reduction of my personal stress, & ability to cope with a job that requires me daily to multi-task, whilst managing a team. And after many years of uncontrollable sciatica, I now have relief!

Since becoming a qualified T5T® instructor I have been actively educating my clients in the practice of T5T® and delighted to see them now enjoying the benefits of T5T® in so many ways. Having been an active Yoga student & bush walker I have been attracted to all types of Yoga disciplines, and related CD's Videos that are available today. My weekly routine involved considerable hours of Yoga, however discovering T5T® I have been able to increase my flexibility, core strength and fitness without the need to regularly attend expensive fitness groups, gyms and time consuming classes.
