Yoga and Relaxation Teacher
About me
My practice and teaching come from a somatic place of listening deeply within, which is a skill that I have developed with support from my teachers. I have been blessed to have studied in depth with Donna Farhi and through her guidance have been opened up to a truly loving and sustainable practice. She also introduced me to Restorative Yoga which has become one of my staples and I love to share it with my community. In recent years I have studied the non-dual teachings of Yoga with Dr. Richard Miller to become a Level 2 certified iRest Yoga Nidra instructor.

With nearly two decades of yoga practice under my belt I feel so grateful to have had a practice to guide and support me through some challenging times, especially as a mother, as well as delight in and appreciate the good times.

I offer conscious movement and Restorative Yoga classes, private sessions, workshops and retreats here where I live in Nelson, New Zealand. I am a registered as a Level 1 and 2 iRest teacher.

The radical art of Restorative yoga is a counter cultural thing to do. In a busy and striving world this class supports you to take care of yourself and restore any feeling of overwhelm and overdoing. Find ease and be guided through a deeply nourishing class that explores some gentle somatic movement to kindly connect with your body followed by tension releasing restorative postures. Your experience may be accompanied by guided meditation, poetry or yogic self-inquiry as well as an invitation to connect with the ground of simply being and silence.

These classes are welcoming, gentle, and at a pace that allows the student to connect with a natural breath and their own needs. All blankets and props provided.

Please bring $15 cash or pay into Samsara Health Ltd, ANZ account number is 06-0705-0357659-00 and put your name and then 'Friday' as reference.
