Director Pure Yoga NZ
Are the classes suitable for Beginners?Yes, Pure Yoga offers local and online beginner yoga courses for those new to Yoga. Courses focus on building foundational skills in alignment and conscious breathing. Courses are designed for newcomers over a series of weeks which allows for individual attention and practices that build confidence, flexibility, mobility and strength. These courses will set you up to progress further into the Hatha system and to be able to continue at home if that is your goal. For entry level students the Restorative yoga and Yoga Nidra courses are the best fit.
What is included in the Yoga Classes?Each class is holistic in nature including physical postures (Asana), guided breathing (Pranayama) & Meditation components. Pure Yoga is passionate about supporting people to integrate Yoga into daily life so shares tips and resources to help you build sustainable tools.

Do you run Yoga classes outside of Auckland?Yes, Pure Yoga travels to locations around NZ bringing speciality workshops, masterclasses & yogic lifestyle events to communities, Yoga studios & corporate settings.
What type of meditation do you teach?Pure Yoga is grounded in years of meditation practice and training in the classical forms of meditation that are aimed at building the specific skills of meditation and extending these into everyday life so that transformation occurs in a gradual yet lasting way. The techniques include both dynamic and static forms of meditation that prepare the body and mind for inner work. Specific techniques that help to embody relaxation, stillness, witnessing the mind, utilizing breath and energy include; Yoga Nidra, Body stillness, Steady Gazing (Trataka), Inner silence (Antar Mouna). How to use a mala for meditation and gaining a clear understanding of different energy systems and its influence on mental patterns (Vrittis, Samskaras).
What format does the meditation class take?The classes begin & end with centering in the present moment. Yoga Nidra a deep relaxation practice and one that embeds the essential skills of meditation is used to release tension. A seated meditation practice follows which builds and hones awareness from the gross (body) to more subtle layers of your being (mind, prana & subtle bodies).
What aspects of Meditation are included?The essential skills of meditation are highlighted in these courses, working to build up from simple to more complex. These skills are broken down each week and linked with lifestyle integration. The techniques are the building blocks of these skills and vary from Yoga Nidra to body based meditation. Some techniques include breath & energy as the main focus. More advanced practices work more directly with the mind & psychic bodies.

What CLIENTS Say
I have been a student of yoga & meditation for many, many years and a teacher now for the last 7 years. I've been blessed with the most amazing teachers from various traditions who have each given me special gifts. I was so lucky to begin my 500 hour teaching journey with Pragyadhara this January in a restorative yoga, breathing and yoga nidra course at Kawai Purapura. This and the proceeding study have provided the gateway to the most phenomenal shift in my personal practice and teaching.
Pragyadhara embodies yoga for me. A font of traditional wisdom imparted with deep humility and expertise.
I am grateful for the opportunity I had in working with Pragyadhara. I will be back for more. You should too.
