Yoga for Wellbeing

with Barbara Coley

The word ‘svastha’ means to be in a place of optimal health and balance, body and mind.  This is the underlying principle in all Svastha Yoga Aotearoa offerings  – promoting an integrated and personalised approach, where students are supported by practices that cultivate well-being.

Move with ease, breathe with ease, live with ease.

Yoga is an ancient art that helps us to live life with more ease and more clarity. It brings us home to a place of peace and calm.

Barbara began her yoga journey in the early 1990’s and has been teaching since 2007. She is an advocate for sound yoga practices that are accessible to all regardless of background, abilities & circumstances.

Yoga Education

In 2022 Barbara is offering the Svastha 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program in two formats – part-time study in Auckland or an intensive retreat in Rarotonga. Our yoga teacher training enables you to become a qualified teacher with a deep understanding of yoga practices, yoga psychology, anatomy, asana, pranayama and meditation.

Our methodologies give you a comprehensive understanding of how to teach yoga that is accessible to students of all ages, abilities, stages of life and gender identification.

Upskill and deepen your understanding of teaching yoga to specialised populations with our 150 hour Diploma in Specialised Teaching Skills or, commence your Yoga Therapy training.



Yoga Classes

Barbara teaches a number of small group classes from her home studio in Auckland. Classes include Yoga for Svastha classes, Group Yoga Therapy classes, and Pregnancy Yoga classes.

Barbara takes a maximum of 5 students in each class which allows for a very personalised experience. Classes are relaxed, friendly and inclusive of all levels of experience.

If you are wanting to understand yoga a little deeper, but are not ready for a Teacher Training, try out one of Barbara’s practical and informative workshops.

Yoga Therapy & Personal Yoga Sessions

Whether you are wanting to gain more clarity and peace of mind in your life or you are experiencing less-than-optimal health, Yoga Therapy sessions with Barbara will enable you to progress towards your personal wellbeing goals.

Barbara also provides personal yoga sessions for yoga practitioners who prefer to practice outside of a group class environment. They are also beneficial for students who are wanting to develop a home yoga practice and/or wanting to bring the deeper aspects of yoga into their practice.

Whatever your needs, Barbara will expertly tailor these sessions to meet your requirements.

 Barbara has been practicing yoga for 30 years and teaching since 2007. She is the Aotearoa, New Zealand home of Svastha Yoga.
