ABOUT THE TEAM
Born and raised in Canterbury, I grew up in a sporting family, embracing any physical pursuit that involved a ball and a competition! Being naturally gifted at cricket and golf, I spent years competing in both disciplines to a high level. My love for sport spread to indoor netball where i suffered a full knee rupture and was left questioning life without the physical aspect that i identified with.
I somewhat fell into yoga with influence from my wife and an attractive sounding retreat in Bali! The retreat opened My eyes to how the physical body training is a path to the mind training and inward focus that is the real game-changer. Not long after, I embarked on Power Living’s 200hr teacher training, and haven’t looked back to what seems like a worlds away past, due to a new found awareness and clarity, thanks to Yoga.
Marcelly has been practicing yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2006. Her life was completely changed when she got pregnant in 2008 and had her first natural birth in Brazil. Pregnancy and birth are still fascinating for her: “Yoga is an amazing way for women to increase their connection with themselves and the baby. Breathing and relaxation techniques empower women in preparation for labour. For me it’s wonderful to stay in touch with pregnant women trough yoga!”
Jasmine fell in love with yoga the minute she stepped onto a yoga mat in 2007. She is a true believer that yoga is the best medicine for the body, mind and soul. Jasmine received her 200-hour teacher training certification on the secluded Little Corn Island, Nicaragua, under the guidance of Meghan Currie. She feels this was one of the most wonderful achievements and experiences of her life.
She is continuing to study with Noah Maze in a 300-hour advanced teacher training, to be completed in 2017.
Jasmine’s eagerness to help people find alignment and peace in their practice is what brings her to teach. She teaches hatha, vinyasa and yin. Finding that each style has something unique to offer. She has a natural, fun approach, typical of her personality. Jasmine’s practice is constantly evolving as a student and teacher. She feels blessed and inspired by the people she’s met along the way and plans to continue training across the globe.
I discovered yoga 20 years ago when I was an architecture student in America. It was becoming very popular over there at the time, but still a bit unknown back in France when I came from.
I immediately loved how it made me feel in my body and in my mind; its calming effect and overall well-being feel. It didn’t take me long to become hooked!
I finally took the plunge and completed my 200hrs teacher’s training with Power Living and my Yin Level 1 with Joe Barnett. I’ll be doing my Yin Level 2 at the end of the year and always look forward to gain new knowledge and sharing it with my students.
“I am so excited to bring Kula Kids’ Yoga to Cendrine’s!
I love my yoga practice and I love teaching yoga to children. It offers them a form of movement and physicality that can be gentle or athletic and non-competitive. It builds strength, balance and flexibility. It teaches mindfulness in stillness ( I always include some quiet meditation in class) and mindfulness in action. The yoga teachings include principles of compassion for self and others, discipline and self-study. My classes are playful, imaginative and age-appropriate weaving games, song and story into the practice of the poses.
I currently teach yoga to children, teens and adults in Eastbourne and Lower Hutt. I received my RYT training in California and have years of experience working with children in schools and after school (references available). I am also the mother of three children ages 14, 17 and 22 and have learned the most from them. ”
