About Graeme Northfield

Graeme has been a dedicated practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga for over 30 years and continues with passion and enthusiasm. He maintains an insightful and investigative approach to practice and teaching and is always excited to share his depth of experience and knowledge with others.

In 1976, after attending a lecture on meditation by a Tibetan Buddhist monk, Graeme felt deeply inspired to seek answers to his many questions about life, death and dying through the exploration of Eastern spiritual practices.

Graeme qualified as a registered nurse in 1980. In the ensuing years, whilst working in a Hospice for the dying, he was introduced to Siddha Yoga which eventually led him on a journey to India. But instead of Ganeshpuri, Graeme was drawn to Mysore. In 1982, that first memorable meeting with Shri K Pattabhi Jois would ignite a life-long study of and passion for Ashtanga Yoga. He completed the 4th Series in 1991 and was certified by Pattabhi Jois to teach Primary through to Advanced B Series.

In 1996 he met Laura Romano from Solo, Java, who introduced him to Sumarah Meditation. This practice of Sumarah has added further dimension and awareness to Graeme’s approach and understanding. Sumarah means ‘surrender’ and places a strong emphasis on contacting deeper states of relaxation.

When not out travelling and teaching workshops or retreats in Australia and overseas, Graeme enjoys being home on the land in the Nambucca Valley working with permaculture principles.
