‘It varies depending on times and schedules, but Elsa and I usually meet once a week for an hour,’ Tahl told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Our approach to health and fitness is making it work around your lifestyle, and not the other way around.’
Regime: Tahl (pictured) said Elsa, 42, usually meets for one hour a week, if more, and focuses on core work, sun salutes, arm balances, backbends and floor work

Elsa is a fan of flow yoga and incorporates a diverse range of movements to increase flexibility while toning.
‘We make our classes a little longer (than an hour), if there’s enough time,’ Tahl said. ‘It usually includes a mix of core work, sun salutes, standing poses, arm balances and handstands.’
‘Also backbends and floor work,’ Tahl added. ‘We make sure to have a diverse range of movements. It’s important to mix it up depending on how you’re feeling and what else you’ve been doing that week.’
Tahl described Elsa as ‘extremely dedicated’, however her first priority will always be raising her children, daughter India Rose, seven, and twin sons Tristan and Sasha, five.

Tahl’s top tips for beginners
* Listen for modifications
* Take things slow
* Repeat a class to get familiar with the poses and transitions
* It’s all about listening to your body
* Move in a way that’s challenging to you
‘She always gets out and moves her body in some way every day,’ Tahl said. ‘However, family comes first, so for now while her children are young, her yoga practice will be a bit inconsistent at times, which of course, is totally fine.’
Elsa complements her yoga regime with cardio such as boxing, which Tahl also recommends.
‘Mixed Martial Arts or Functional Training, or any of the different workouts on the Centr app, are great to accompany yoga with. All the workouts really complement each other.’
