Meet Margot

Margot Porter

Well hello, there beautiful woman,

I’m passionate about supporting women on the path. It really lights me up and I feel like I have found my soul purpose.

I’m 100% me, now, the light and the dark – no apologies. I love being in my fifties. Menopause expanded and amplified both my life and work

But It wasn’t always this way…


Margot has been practising and studying the art of yoga from a range of traditions in Australia and internationally for over 20 years. Curious, quirky and intuitive, Margot is a creator, a writer, a mandala maker, an artist, and a gardener who draws inspiration for her classes, workshops and retreats from the rich teachings of nature. An experienced teacher and lifelong student, she communicates and connects easily sharing her experience and knowledge of embodied consciousness with joy. She is enraptured with the alchemy of Yoga to shift, soothe and heal us from within and is driven to help others open the door and truly know the complex, intricate and astonishing landscape within.

Margot is the founder and principal teacher at Yoga East in Bairnsdale, Victoria. A level 2 registered teacher (500RYT) with Yoga Australia, Margot has over 1200 hours in Yoga Teacher Training and is currently immersed in the tantric embodiment practices of Prana Vinyasa TM Teacher training with Shiva Rea and Delamay Devi. Constantly evolving, in addition to teaching weekly classes, workshops, intensives since 2010, she hosts and teaches 2 or 3  retreats a year in Australia, New Zealand, Bali and Indonesia.
