Our Vision & Values
Discover inner strength. Lead from the heart. Serve with love.
At Momentum Yoga we believe in the innate power of human potential. In the true peace, goodness and compassion that’s found at the heart of each of us.
Our vision is for a community and a world that embraces our humanity, our sameness, and that values spirituality, as equally as it does material wealth and economic success.
Our vision for you, and for everyone that we work with, is that you may discover and harness your innate love, wisdom and aliveness – your momentum – in all that you do. That you may be at peace with who you are, enjoy radiant health, wellbeing and fulfilling relationships, through all phases of your life.
Our experience is that more and more people are making shifts from the outward to the inward, from unconscious to conscious living. From always ‘doing’ to also ‘being’. From blaming others to taking self-responsibility and leading by example. From being judgmental to being compassionate. From always needing more and pushing ahead – to giving and letting go.
We don’t offer fancy quick-fixes or promises of overnight success. The kind of self-growth work we offer takes time, inner strength and requires having a like-minded, open-hearted community around you.
We hope to be that community for you. Because we too, are a work in progress.
We love and are passionate about what we do. And our team is here to inspire and support you.
We are guided by six core values:
- Happiness – knowing that true happiness comes from within each of us and overflows into the simple stuff of everyday life;
- Community – creating and fostering a community (sangha in Sanskrit) of like-minded people that enjoy, support and inspire one another’s growth;
- Vitality – living with a calm radiance and healthy energy;
- Integrity – saying what we do and doing what we say;
- Compassion – seeking to understand others and respecting the uniqueness, dignity and privacy of students and clients;
- Diversity – encouraging and actively respecting all people regardless of age, physical limitation, nationality, culture, gender, religion or sexual orientation;
- Professionalism – seeking to learn and improve, with a commitment to the ethical standards of the coaching and yoga teaching professions.
Community & Aboriginal Heritage
We acknowledge the Whadjuk Nyoongar people as the original custodians of this land on which we work and live. And we pay our respects to their elders past, present and future. Ngaala Kaadity, Whadjuk Nyoongar Moort, keyen kaadak nidja boodja.
The Aboriginal name for Alfred Cove is Marrandangup and the local wetlands were used by the Beeliar Nyoongars as an abundant source of yams, crustaceans, turtles and water fowl. Today Alfred Cove is a protected nature reserve.
We value being part of the local community and we love supporting others. Our Community Connections are students, clients, friends and other small businesses known to us.
We play our part in helping to preserve the beautiful local natural environment around the Swan River in Bicton. In partnership with the Bicton Environmental Action Group our Bicton Foreshore and Blackwell Reach Community Volunteering project sees us get our hands dirty helping with revegetation, weed control and environmental protection.
Momentum began in 2007 in Bunbury, where Natalie Snooke practiced as a sole-practitioner. Following her move to Fremantle in 2009 and an intention to offer more through Momentum, she began an office in the historic Old Fremantle Prison and ran yoga classes from several established studios in the Fremantle area.
In 2011, following a calling to expand, the right place became available and Momentum’s own centre was established in Melville. Based in the Melville Professional Centre, Momentum earned its reputation as a respected wellness centre, serving thousands of people in the local residential and business communities.
In 2017 we relocated to a fresh new studio space in Alfred Cove, as part of the friendly Alfred Cove Village community. Our administration, coaching and corporate services are managed from Natalie’s home, not far away.
Thanks for your interest and we look forward to working with you.
