Join me on a 8 week journey into the sweetness that is this very body
Soma = Body
I want to create experiences, where someone feels as though they shifted something, they discovered, felt or saw something in themselves that wasn’t there before (but was there all along). This is a journey that goes far deeper than coming to a yoga class, doing a few poses and then going about your day.
This 8 week program allows you to dive all the way. To be held for 8 weeks through this discovery of self. Of how the mind connects to the body, how the body connects to self, to others and to the rest of the world. Learning who YOU are, how you show up, and you walk through life.
This is an online variation of my In-Person courses, so that those outside of Christchurch/New Zealand can join. I wanted to make this sacred journey accessible to more people…so through this online portal, we get to move, breathe and be together.
How does it differ?
Nothing much will change from the in-person session, we will still spend 90 minutes a week with each other, we will still move through yoga sequences, free movement, and you’ll still be guided through meditations and journaling questions. You will have a safe and supportive place to sink into each week and time for discovery of self.
The main difference would be – it will be hosted online through zoom, which will be recorded. That means, if you cannot make a session, you can watch the replay. You will have access to all recorded classes for 6 months after the course ends, to watch and re-watch in your own time. These will all be hosted on a platform for easy access.
I am aware that some of you may come from outside New Zealand, so I am open to changing the time of sessions to suit more people – this will be discussed closer to the time.
You will be added to a community group on social media, to stay connected and to ask questions.

Online Soma course
The style that I teach is a weaving between free movement and ‘Eco-somatic yoga’ – This is a body-based flow, where we feel, sense or imagine different bodily systems (e.g lungs, heart, bones, blood, skin), in each class – using the traditional yoga poses that you would see in any type of yoga – This allows us to create an understanding and be present with what is happening inside of us. And potentially guide us to seeing how all parts of us are fully in communication and interconnection.
In each class there is a lot of repetition and (sometimes) time for free movement, which potentiates the flow state (yum) and it also allows trust and sovereign choice to form within yourself. YOU get to create your experience, you get to to tap in and ask what feels right for YOU, rather than me forcing an experience.
What To Expect
Throughout the full 8 weeks there will be a thread of a body-based theme that we will explore but every 90 minute class is completely new and inspiring.
For the first 15 minutes we will have a somatic inquiry, where there will be individual work to explore the theme we will be coming to understand
There will be an hour long yoga class, with the potential of free movement
The last 15 minutes will be filled with either journal questions, meditation or group discussion to sink even further into your own embodied experience.
There is no part of me that wants to control or name the experience you may have. But there is a large possibility of:
Feeling deeply connected to yourself, others and everything around you.
Begin to explore unexpressed emotions and have deeper emotional fluency
Have profound appreciation for this vessel that you live in
Increased creativity, pleasure of moving, connection to self and sooo much more
The investment into this 8 week journey is $150. Either pay up front, or payment plans are optional! If you would like a payment plan, get in contact with me.
