Hi, I'm Jessica. After 4 years of deepening my practice I decided to devote my career to teaching and sharing my passion of yoga. I trained at Vinyasa Yoga School in Rishikesh, India, and I am qualified in Vinyasa, Hatha and Meditation. My classes emanate creative, fun and flowing sequences that combine precision of alignment with steady connection to the breath in order to facilitate a mindful investigation of our energetic body and moving anatomy. I strive to support students by drawing on yogic philosophy for inspiration, providing hands-on assistance and creating an atmosphere that teases the senses.
Vinyasa Flow - Thursday 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Join me for a dynamic vinyasa flow with creative sequences, fun inversions and soothing meditation. I use essential oils and tasteful music to tantalise the senses.

Meditation provides a simple, practical way to nurture and rejuvenate the inner essence. It gives you an opportunity to look deeper into yourself. Meditation heals and transforms us. Meditating regularly improves quality of life, provides stress relief and brings balance to our lives.

Casual or concession passes available
It was approximately 15 years ago I was first introduced to Yoga and is something I haven’t ventured far from. In February 2017 I graduated from the Hatha Yoga teacher training with the Auckland Yoga Academy and am now enjoying sharing my knowledge. I teach a practice which has a strong focus on alignment and safety and aim to provide a supportive and calm environment.
Hatha slow flow
In this practice we use movement to awaken and warm up the body, then move through postures paying attention to technique and alignment. Props are available as necessary to support any limitations in the body.
Hatha (using props)
In this practice we spend time exploring postures using props to align and support the body. A great class for all including complete beginners. Get a deeper understanding of your body and the postures all whilst getting a great stretch out.
I look forward to seeing you on the mat!

$100 / 10 Classes
Hi! I'm Yulia, a certified yoga teacher from Siberia. Yoga has been a transformative force in my life over the past 7 years. In 2015, I moved to New Zealand to develop my yoga teaching, becoming further inspired by local Kiwi yoga teachers. Recently I completed my RYT-200 level yoga certification in Bali and I’ve returned to share my multi-cultural yoga experience with others. I teach a varied style, from very gentle Hatha flow, to more challenging Vinyasa sequences. My classes are balanced for students of all levels to explore a powerful alignment-based practice, that help develop greater stamina, strength and flexibility. I believe there is always room for continuous improvement and progress. You'll be amazed at how transformative and rewarding yoga can be.
I look forward to welcoming you to my class!
Embodied Yoga | Donna
Wednesday @ 6.30am - 7.30am
Donna has been practicing yoga for over 11 years now and it was initially the desire for a strong supple body that drew her to this ancient practice. But through hardship she experienced first hand the profound effect that yoga can also have on one's mind and soul. She completed her teacher training at the Byron Yoga Centre in Byron Bay, Australia in September 2015. Donna brings her passion for life to her teaching and is dedicated to helping her students discover the immense benefits of a regular yoga practice.
With a focus on correct alignment, this class is also seeking to flow with the breath from one pose to another through choreographed transitions. It’s designed to get the blood pumping and challenge you. Classes are tailored to suit all levels and each class has a different theme. Donna is rather fond of being upside down and will be incorporating arm balances, headstands and handstands into the class when appropriate! Pranayama breath control and meditation also integrated into the class.

Mari has always found salvation in movement; from dance, to circus aerial to yoga, physical expression has been an organic part of her life for many years. She completed a 200 hour yoga TTC in India and is driven by a profound passion to help and guide others on their yoga journey, amalgamating her love for dance with this beautiful, ancient practice. For Mari, yoga is about the journey towards inner peace through a mindful dance of breath and body, to unite the mind, body and soul as one in effortless and unbounded choreography.

Sophia brings a genuine, compassionate, and holistic approach to health coaching, personal training, and teaching. With experience working in the wellness industry for several years with both one on one clients as well as instructing an array of different group fitness classes, this year Sophia has decided to focus on what she is most passionate about; yoga.
During a tough time in 2009, Sophia discovered this practice was an excellent way to clear as well as strengthen both her mind and body. Over the last 8 years she has been dedicated to self practice and self discovery, and this year she traveled to India to gain her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training certification, which transformed her love of yoga into a burning desire to share it with anyone who will listen!
A slow flow of poses and gentle movements to help start the day. You can expect to leave feeling calm and rejuvenated yet with boosted energy for the week ahead. This class is 'beginner-friendly' and 'bump-safe', as Sophia is trained in pre-natal yoga through Bliss Baby.
A yoga class tailored to those who meet on the mat each session. With some yogic beats to accompany any combination of dynamic vinyasa flows, sun salutations, a bit of yang with resporative yin, you are sure to enjoy this hour on the mat amongst the ivy and your breath.
Contact me with recommendations of your favourite poses and I am happy to include them in our next sequence together!
