Natural Therapist and yoga practitioner Janine Gaddie is embarking on a New Zealand workshop tour and we are pleased to be hosting her this October.
Presenting an evening workshop designed to explore how the mind and body are not separate but rather a unified network of intelligence. We’ll explore the science of emotions and what happens to thoughts and feelings in the body. Bringing to light how pain, posture, tension and the structure of individual body parts can explain why you are in the shape you are in – physically and emotionally. We will connect intimately with our emotional anatomy as an integral part of yoga, healing and expression.
Wednesday October 22 2014
6:00 – 9:00pm
Cost $40 ($35 early bird price paid by October 7th)
Book a place by emailing email@example.com

Today we honour the passing, on August 20th, of one of the giants of modern yoga Sri BKS Iyengar. He was a great man and a brilliant proponent of yoga who will be sorely missed throughout the yoga world. His style of yoga has informed millions of practitioners around the world.
Sri Iyengar was a life time friend and colleague to our late and dear Guruji Sri K Patabois Jois 2015 – 2009
Iyengar was known for his precision and skill in achieving exactness with poses (and famous for introducing props in the studio room). He was also a hugely prolific author of books bringing a vibrant intellect to life. Light on Yoga remains one of the more/most respected books in the world of yoga.
“When I practice, I am a philosopher, when I teach I am a scientist, when I demonstrate I am an artist” BKS Iyengar.
