NEW! Restorative Yin Yoga & Breathwork Course – starts on Sunday 2nd July 2023
This class is at the perfect time to wind down from your week and week-end and prepare yourself mentally and physically for the week ahead.
Classes combine long Yin Yoga holds without muscle tension to improve flexibility and allow your body and mind to relax deeply, with mindful Pranayama Yoga Breathwork and Meditation practices to bring your focus inwards and onto the present moment. In this space your body can release deeply held stress and tension sending a message to the brain that you are safe and in control.
As the nervous system is calmed the relaxation response is activated. Prana (life) is able to flow more freely enhancing vitality, healing, and a sense of calm and equanimity.
This is special time to care for and connect with yourself as you let go of expectations and enjoy time to just ‘be’.
Limited spaces are available to join in a small and cosy group environment. This class is also suitable for those who may find regular yoga classes inaccessible for a variety of reasons.

Introduction to Kundalini Yoga Course starts Sunday 16 April 2023
**This course is now full and there is a second course starting on Sunday 23 April 2023 (10am to 11:30am)**
Join Nicky to explore the foundational aspects of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan over 8 weeks here in Blenheim, Marlborough.
This will be a small in-person only group (the same group will go through the whole course together, there won’t be any ‘drop-in’ places offered along the way).
This course is perfect if you are new to yoga, or for those who are more experienced but wanting to learn more about Kundalini Yoga or take the time to cover the fundamentals.
Often referred to as the Yoga of Transformation, Kundalini Yoga is a truly holistic practice utlising many yogic tools such as different breathing techniques, mantra, kriya, specific hand positions, body locks, meditation and relaxation practices.
Kundalini Yoga works on both the gross and subtle aspects of the body and mind and is both energising and deeply calming. Ultimately it allows for the unfolding of the potential that lies dormant within us and is a powerful tool for awakening and spiritual progress.
Starting on Sunday 16 April at 4pm (90 minute session each week) and running for 8 consecutive weeks. This is an ideal time in the week for self reflection and preparation for the week ahead.
Investment: $280 NZD (includes a workbook and all classes).
LIMITED SPACES, please sign up early!
The course fee is non transferable and non refundable.
