Yoga Teacher / Reiki Healer / Wellness Coach
Paula is an international yoga teacher, reiki healer and nature lover. She teaches several styles of yoga, including vinyasa flow, hatha, Sculpt TM, yin yoga, restorative yoga, meditation and yoga nidra. Paula trained and taught full time in London, as well as teaching international yoga and wellness retreats, before returning to her home country of New Zealand in October 2019.
Paula loves the feeling yoga gives her, in her body, in her mind, and in her soul – the sense of space in the body and the mind, how the energy can be moved and freed and changed, and the sense of joy and freedom experienced from being on the mat. Paula is grateful for these gifts and loves sharing these with others. Having dealt with her own injuries from snowboarding she is keen to support others to heal, and to practice safely but with a sense of freedom.
Before certifying as a yoga teacher Paula was a Social Worker for 15 years, working both in Australia and UK (although born and raised in New Zealand). Throughout her Social Work career Paula chose to specialise in therapeutic areas, including counselling, group work, training, mentoring, developmental and policy work, and practice development; working in areas such as substance misuse, domestic abuse, mental health, and hospitals.
Paula understands how incredibly effective yoga is in enabling people to heal physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically; to come back to themselves, to be healthy and to enjoy life. Paula places a great deal of emphasis on alignment and working safely with injuries, whilst supporting her students to find joy and ease in moving with breath, in improving strength, flexibility, posture, and balance, in all its forms.
Paula adores nature and all the elements of the Great Outdoors, and finds this resonates in her work with energy - whether in yoga postures, wellness coaching or reiki. She is grateful for the gift of being able to support others to create space and beautiful energy in both body and mind. Paula believes there is magic to be found and created in yoga, as well as nature, and brings a touch of this with her to each experience!
