Small, friendly yoga classes and yoga therapy in Grey Lynn

Barbara Coley, a mature and experienced yoga teacher and certified Yoga Therapist, offers small group classes, yoga therapy, and private instruction from her home studio in Grey Lynn.

The word “Svastha” in Sanskrit means to be in a state of optimal health and balance in body and mind. This is the underlying principle in all Svastha Yoga classes – to help you feel as good as you can.

This is an integrated and personalised approach to yoga that addresses all aspects of health and well-being. The essence of the practice is the combination of functional movement, breath and mindfulness, which lays the foundation from which a positive mind-body connection emerges. As a result, we are able to live more fully in the present moment, in harmony with ourselves, with others and with our environment.

Quite simply, this is a practice that will help you feel better, more at ease in your body and mind!


“The sense of well-being I now experience, each and every day, is directly attributable to my Svastha yoga practice!” ~ Charles Pulman

“I completed my teacher training with Barbara in 2017. The course was life changing for me. I had practiced yoga for many years, but this course and mentoring from Barbara not only gave me a deeper understanding of yoga and took my practice to the next level, but I also saw a huge shift in my personal life. Barbara has a wealth of knowledge and is an excellent teacher, who is remaining true to the original yoga teachings.”
