Yoga Christchurch

WELCOME

Our mission is to make
you smile

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!

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 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.

Testimonials

I enjoy yoga, it is very good for me and Maja's style suits me well. To be honest, I am not really the type to do something like yoga and especially to stick with it, so I'm pleasantly surprised with myself!

Jill Plunket

Have been going to yoga with Maja for a few months now and can say unequivocally, it is the best yoga style I have ever done. Maja is positive encouraging and incredibly kind and patient. I have achieved more in these months than in all the years going to Yoga before I started Maja's classes. I would thoroughly recommend her! Namaste.

Penny McCambridge

From the very first class of the beginners course I have enjoyed Maja’s enthusiasm, patience, and love of Yoga. She makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Maja is an excellent teacher. It is definitely one of the most relaxing experiences I have ever felt.

Claudia Engelmann

In the past I have approached yoga a bit like medicine - something I needed to take but not really enjoyable. However, this all changed when I joined Maja's classes. Maja uses an intuitive yoga approach and I loved it. I came each week for my body to be healed, to mediate, to find a calm place, and to be nurtured. At last, I have found a teacher for me.

Cynthia Roberts

I love Maja's beginners yoga class. Maja always makes me feel capable and encourages me to listen to my body and adapt the moves to my ability level whilst still challenging myself. She is an excellent teacher that I would recommend to anybody!

Karen from Sydenham

I love Maja’s classes. They are small enough that Maya gives everyone individual assistance when required. She helps us to understand the yoga poses and principles. She has a very calming voice. I look forward to my yoga with Maja.

Colleen Wadley

Loving yoga with Maja after starting a year ago. I am particularly enjoying the stretching and strengthening that come with the different postures.  Maia is great with her encouragement and correcting which keeps me trying out new postures every week.

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 we 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 session of 30 mins available for everyone new to my classes.  Book your spot!
