svastha yoga – the art of self-care
The timeless art of yoga offers a myriad of tools to help us to be in the state of svastha, that is, a place of optimal health and balance.
The essence of Svastha Yoga is the combination of movement, breath and mindfulness. This lays the foundation from which a positive mind-body connection emerges and we are able to live in harmony – with ourselves, with others and with our environment.
Svastha Yoga New Zealand was founded by Barbara Coley, an experienced and knowledgeable teacher, who is passionate about helping her students towards greater health & peace of mind using the wisdom of yoga and ayurveda. She specialises in personalised yoga, mainly teaching one-to-one but also teaches a weekly group class for general health & fitness, a weekly pregnancy yoga class and presents regular workshops on yoga as a practice of self-care.
Barbara is a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT) with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and is registered at the 500 hour level with Yoga Alliance (RYT500). She presents an internationally recognised yoga teacher training program and yoga therapy training program.
Ultimately yoga is an individual practice that addresses each persons’ unique needs and goals; Barbara’s desire is to educate and inspire you to nurture your own well-being, embrace your individuality and practice in a manner that makes sense to you.
“The sense of well-being I now experience, each and every day, is directly attributable to my Svastha yoga practice!” ~ Charles Pulman
