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.
Philippa began practising yoga in 2004 and immediately found relief with on-going back problems that had plagued her for some time. Philippa regularly attends yoga workshops to upskill her practise and teaching.
Philippa is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and teaches with enthusiasm and compassion.
Katrina found yoga when her family moved from NZ to North America. What began as curiosity quickly transformed into a daily practise which strenghtened her body-mind connection.
Upon returning to NZ Katrina completed a 200 hour teachers training with an additional module of Restorative Yoga. Katrina has undertaken additional training in Yin Yoga and is currently in training for Vinyasa style yoga.
As one who continues to experience the transformative effects of a yoga and meditation practise, Katrina encourages you to join her on the mat to explore and learn from the wisdom of your own body and reaping the benefits which extend far beyond the physical. Katrina teaches our Yin yoga classes.
