About DIONNE LISTER Founder 

THE YOGA SHED - BURPENGARY EAST·

 

I turned to Yoga as a self-help program, not knowing the positive impact it would have on my mind, body and personal life. I felt the need to share this.

My life journey has certainly met its challenges, and I lost myself as an individual but I have always met each challenge finding that positive.

​A mother of three children my eldest being diagnosed Cerebral Palsy and restricted with her mobility. I looked to yoga as a way of finding myself again.

​Growing up with a very active lifestyle, I was extremely competitive I ventured in and out of different careers and was always driven by success. Health/sport wise Yoga and Pilates classes and retreats, were always my go to throughout Sydney, Perth and Queensland.

I endured my fair share of injuries throughout the years dislocating my shoulder at 17, at 22 I sustained T12 crush fracture and broke 3 ribs. During my last pregnancy I took a fall during a simple grocery shop in a local supermarket sustaining fractures to my L3 and L5. The pain made it difficult to sleep, walk, sit and stand for long periods. I was told by my local GP I would at some stage be walking hunched over due to this last injury.

I have suffered with depression and isolation.

 

Based on past personal experience my response is to self heal and assist others in doing the same. I now have personal and hands on experience with shoulder, neck, back and hip injuries. I also have 11 years hands on experience with the debilitating diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. I believe these challenges have strengthened me as a person and I now feel the need to share ways to strengthen your mind, body and spirit.
