The Yoga Tree, located on the North Shore in beachside Takapuna, is no ordinary yoga studio something you sense upon first stepping foot through the doors. Recently remodelled, and under new ownership, this Balinese inspired studio is a place where you’ll feel like you’ve come home regardless of whether it’s your first yoga experience. The surroundings are a reflection of its intention to promote wellness as well as spiritual insight focusing on the eight limbs of yoga, not just the physical asana.
Before acquiring the studio in Dec. 2014, studio owner/director Amanda Morrall (an author, financial journalist and mother of two) had a long-time vision of sharing her passion for yoga with others. The Yoga Tree, in its latest incarnation, is most definitely a reflection of that. The Yoga Tree is a place of community, connection and wellness designed to help students discover, develop and advance their practise both on and off the mat. As such, the studio offers a range of classes and styles to suits practitioners at various stages and ages of life, including pregnancy, post-natal pilates, mums and bubs, massage, restorative, general and gentle. Amanda’s vision is to create a wider community of yogis that can benefit from the practise, and its full spectrum of teachings.
