Yoga for Well-being

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

Train with Svastha Yoga to become a skilled yoga teacher. Our Yoga Teacher Training programs enable 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, and will deepen your own practice and awareness of yoga.
