Raw Yoga

‘Yoga in your local community. For locals, by locals.

Raw Wellbeing offers a range of classes to suit different needs, ranging from very slow and grounded relaxation practices, to stronger and dynamic practices. All our classes move at a mindful pace so there is time to give things a go.

All our classes and private sessions are designed to be inclusive by offering different options and variations that can be adapted for individual needs. This way we can offer you the opportunity to understand your own body-mind connection in a more grounded and effective way. This is known as a ‘Mental Health Aware’ or ‘Trauma informed’ approach.

Over years of teaching and training others to teach, Nicole and John have an in-depth understanding of the body-mind connection. They understand the importance of mindfulness and embodiment practices to maintain great mental health, keep stress in balance, support illness and injury recovery as well as navigating the delicate process of getting older.

Sometimes it’s best to get in touch with Nicole or John who can go over what will be the best place for you to get started. Feel free to email studio@rawyoga.co.nz, and if you would like to speak on the phone you can try your luck or schedule a time to chat via text 021 111 5825.

If you are looking at coming to group classes our space takes up to a max of 12 students at a time, so classes will always be small. There is fresh tea brewed if you want to arrive a few minutes early and settle in before your session.

Through hours of dedicated practice and training, both Nicole and John are highly qualified Yoga Instructors, Teacher Trainers and mental health professionals. Under the name Raw Yoga, Nicole and John have been sharing a love of mindful movement for the past 10 years. After a short hiatus, in February 2023 Nicole and John re-launched their new studio space back in Milford – Raw Wellbeing.’
