Welcome to Aroha Nui Yoga!

Aroha Nui Yoga is an holistic approach to your wellbeing

I am a Yoga Teacher known for my intuitive approach, passion for yoga and te Ao Māori and inspirational teaching style that embodies physical, spiritual, and mental wellbeing. 

I encourage students to practice yoga to maintain a healthy Mauri/ Life force, Tinana / Body, Hinengaro/ Mind and Wairua/ Spirit

With the health and balance of these pou, we are able to care for whānau and others, enhancing all of our relationships

I have been teaching since 2000, having trained and certified in; Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced teaching, as well as; Pre Natal, Yoga Nidra (guided deep relaxation), meditation and restorative and therapeutic yoga. I have trained with IYTA NZ, Ashram Yoga NZ, Judith Hansen Lasater, Sally Kempton and many more amazing teachers in New Zealand, Australia and The United States.

I am a Māmā to four beautiful children, and have spent the last 18 years running my retail fashion and yoga businesses in Helensville, alongside raising a family.

Recently, I closed my retail business to focus on teaching yoga.

I am also currently on a learning journey of the natural healing practices of my ancestors-  Mirimiri

( bodywork ) and Rongoā ( traditional plant medicine )

and Te Reo Māori ( the Māori language ) and the art of Karanga

My classes are friendly, accessible, fun, strengthening and relaxing.

Each class ends with a deep relaxation to let go of tension and unlock your energy, you will leave feeling relaxed, grounded, and renewed.

Aro- to direct

Ha- the breath/ one's essence

Nui- abundant, vast, plentiful, important

Aroha Nui,


Using my training in Hatha, vinyasa, restorative yoga, meditation and yoga nidra, these classes enable all students to participate, by tuning into our breath we become present in the moment, and flow with our own energy.


It is not about forcing the body into poses, you are inviting the body to go to it's own natural edge.

Aroha Nui Flow Yoga brings you into the moment.


Yoga that starts just where you are. Connecting with the breath is integral to our classes. 


The breath is the life force and the connection to our essence and our source.  

From beginner to more advanced, you do not need to be flexible or fit to attend. Aroha Nui Flow increases your strength, flexibility and balance over time.


It also improves your breathing and offers you a chance to let go and relax deeply.


In a fast paced busy world it brings you back into balance. After the sessions you will feel relaxed and renewed.



Te Kākano - The Seed :

A four week intro programme for absolute beginners in yoga.


Experience the benefits of yoga, connect with the others on the same journey, leave feeling renewed and restored.


Yoga gives you energy, helps to strengthen the body, improves your range of movement and gives you tools to release stress. 


You do not need to be flexible to do yoga. This course starts where you are and gently takes you through to easily participate in general yoga classes by the end of the programme.  


There will be no casual option for this programme.
