Hi, I’m Barbara!
I’ve been practising yoga since 1992 and am passionate about its power to transform our lives.
After some years attending yoga classes and occasional workshops, in 2006 I was fortunate enough to find myself in India attending a program with, my now teachers and mentors, A.G. Mohan and Indra Mohan. It was during this 2-month experience that my understanding of yoga deepened to a point, where it became an integral part of my life and I was inspired to share the practice with others. The Mohan family have been the guiding light for me both in my personal practice and as a teacher, I am honoured to be a teacher in the worldwide Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda organisation.
Following my initial training, I managed and taught from a studio in Auckland for the following 9 years, however, in 2016, I made the decision to give up teaching studio classes and now prefer to teach outside of the typical studio environment and teach small, relaxed classes from my home studio where I am able to focus my attention on the areas I am most passionate about – personalised yoga, yoga therapy and yoga education.
I have been teaching the Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda Teacher Training program in New Zealand since 2008 and facilitate and co-teach the Svastha Yoga Therapy Program with Dr Ganesh Mohan.
