Our mission is to make
Welcome to a safe space to explore & create your well-feeling! Our holistic intuitive style is Hatha Yoga based, but open to influences and inspirations across the huge range of styles and variations Yoga has on offer today. While guiding you along the way we provide freedom for creating your own personal approach for your Yoga practice, which also aims at the overall traditional goal of Yoga practice: Freedom for body, mind and spirit! - The ultimate yoga experience. Come and visit our yoga studio today!
Using our intuition with Yoga can greatly help us learn how to listen to our bodies and how to gently adjust postures to our individual needs. This will enhance your overall well-feeling, and support you to create a practice that becomes uniquely your own.
Yoga and Intuition will encourage you always to find your own rhythm and go at your own pace, hold any postures only as long as it feels right for you and rest any time you like.
Our Christchurch yoga classes are for beginners and intermediate level Yogis and get adjusted continuously to match as best as possible what you need. The style is intuitive and gentle with a challenging edge for healthy expansion. We put a lot of emphasis on making the practice comfortable and enjoyable for you! The sessions usually start with a sequence of 'Yoga for the mind' and also provide a guided deep relaxation at the end of each class.
Our bodies are our gardens -
our wills are our gardeners.

ONE ON ONE Private Yoga, The Ultimate Treat
A 1-on-1 session is an individually tailored boost for a good start to your Yoga practice, or helping you to gain insights into your personal needs and how they can be met. It also is a chance to get to know your teacher a bit better and decide whether it is a good fit. It is the ideal way of easing into a Yoga practice when you are a first-timer, it can be optimal support for your personal practice, or supportive for your fitness or recovery journey.
1-on-1 is how Yoga was taught traditionally. Since people are all different, a class environment always is a compromise. 1-on-1 is most effective because it is customised guidance for the best individually tailored experience.
There is a free 1-on-1 single class session of 30 mins available for all students new to my classes. Book your spot!
MEDITATION & Restorative Yoga
Yoga is a perfect preparation for meditation and on Sundays we offer a restorative Yoga class at 4pm (75 mins). The restorative Yoga session is like your Sunday Mini-Retreat!
Meditation starts at 5.30 pm and students are free to come & go as you please and you can choose for how long you like to stay for meditation, exercise self-care and make your attendance fit your needs. Group meditation is a wonderful way to support each other and create a beautiful energy together. Find out more!
