Infuse Health is the place for everyday vitality. Where you can be inspired to use the tools of yoga, movement and nutrition to thrive and have the best possible wellbeing for you.
Founders Rachael and Joshua Pole believe everyone can have vitality, energy and longevity by increasing the bodies’ functionality, inspiring an empowered outlook and minimising internal and external stressors. Their aim is to provide education and guidance for self-care – through yoga, movement and nutrition – to be part of every day.
With this philosophy in mind, the couple designed Infuse Health as a purpose-built space with an Iyengar Yoga school, movement gym, consultation rooms and an area to sit, relax and chat over a cup of tea.
Rachael is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher with an established background in wellness. A career in health including two degrees, nursing and nutrition dietetics, she was introduced to Iyengar Yoga and fell in love with its variation, precision and alignment.
Through Iyengar Yoga, Rachael improved her strength and gained stability and control of her flexibility. However, it was the changes to her mind, especially more clarity, focus, perspective and calmness that had her hooked and eventually she started her teacher training.
For seven years, Rachael has studied the Iyengar system, with quarterly teacher training intensives. This regime, like for all Iyengar certified teachers, has no end point, as the development process is the purpose of the study. She currently studies under senior teacher Alan Goode of Yoga Mandir in Canberra, who regularly attends and trains with the Iyengar family in Pune, India.
Josh is a personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, AWF weightlifting coach and CHEK holistic lifestyle coach. With a passion for movement and continual learning, he regularly attends workshops and retreats. His latest study is the Ido Portal Method that aims to reconnect physicality and maximise movement potential.
Melding his knowledge and expertise, Josh is motivated to increase the body’s physical abilities and awareness. He uses concepts drawn from numerous physical specialisations and reshapes them to a generalist approach. Elements such as power, mobility, balance, spatial control, coordination and play, are explored to leave the body feeling strong, relaxed and energised.
Together, Rachael and Josh’s mission is to nurture, educate and teach through classes, workshops and personal coaching the lifestyle principles of Infuse Health for everyday vitality.
I have been attending Rachael’s yoga classes for some years. As her sequences unfold, you are supported through clear instruction, with just enough detail to ensure an image of the pose in your mind and you achieve your individual potential on that day. The clarity and confidence of her instruction, is enhanced by her supportive and enthusiastic nature and, most importantly, her sense of fun. I always feel welcomed, comfortable and very safe in her classes.

Rachael has instructed me in strength and intermediate classes in the Iyengar system for more than three years. Through her clear instruction, her ability to provide you with those little tweaks in the pose, I have been able to achieve strength, flexibility and peace of mind. I understand yoga is a long journey; Rachael's encouragement and guidance has made this passage so far, for me, an exciting one full of self-awareness. Sign up for one of her classes and you will only be rewarded.
