Svastha Yoga 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 personal 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.
Hello, I’m Barbara! I believe yoga should be accessible and these are the principles I aim to promote in my yoga education programs for teachers and teacher trainees, and small group personalised yoga classes.
I also provide yoga therapy and wellness coaching for people wishing to improve their health.
Barbara is passionate about educating and empowering new and experienced yoga teachers with skills and knowledge that will help them become exceptional yoga teachers who teach with clarity, awareness, sensitivity and heart.
She offers a range of training programs at Svastha Yoga, including Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga Therapy Training, and Continuing Education for Yoga Teachers. These programs will appeal to yoga practitioners starting out on their teaching journey and experienced teachers wanting to deepen their knowledge and develop skills in specialised areas.
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.
