Principal teacher & studio owner
Heidi Napflin (certified Iyengar Yoga teacher) took up Iyengar Yoga in 1998 to find relief for a painful hip. Inspired by the effect and feeling of wellbeing she wanted to take it deeper.
She took up a 3-year teachers training program under the guidance and supervision of a senior teacher and is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher. Heidi regularly attends workshops with senior teachers from Australia, Europe, India and New Zealand to further her knowledge.
Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers go through vigorous certification procedures to attain teaching certificates under the supervision of a senior teacher.
Heidi also trained in Zen Shiatsu and holds a professional degree in Zen Shiatsu Massage from Zen Shiatsu Aotearoa.
Wendy is passionate about yoga and has been practising Iyengar yoga and more recently teacher training under a senior teacher/assessor for the past 10 years. She loves how yoga helps us to clear and focus the mind and allows us to integrate the body and mind together.
Her first yoga experience began in 1998 with Hatha yoga. Very soon thereafter she discovered Iyengar yoga and really enjoyed its precision and instruction.
She was fortunate to practise yoga up to the 38th week in both of her pregnancies for her 2 Children (Jared 6 and Grace 3).
It highlighted for her how all people, including those disabled, old aged or pregnant can practise yoga if they choose the Iyengar method.
