one to one yoga tuition

One to one classes are a powerful way to initiate change efficiently, to receive direct input that meets you where you are at and to benefit from ongoing mentor-ship and personalized guidance. These sessions are held at my home yoga sanctuary overlooking the ocean at Long Bay/Torbay, North Shore, Auckland as-well as online via Zoom.


Are you are new to yoga? Recovering from injury or dealing with an ongoing illness? Would you like to broaden your yoga experience or deepen your existing practice? Need expert guidance about choosing a yoga class that works for you? Wanting to know the difference between yoga classes and styles. Where the yogic tradition comes from?

  • Explore lesser known and taught practices like cleansing techniques, mantra chanting, how to develop your confidence and self esteem through yoga.

  • Deepen your existing practice through working with the energy body more specifically using mudras and bandhas and other complimentary practices. How to extend the principle of awareness into daily action and attitudes.

Sessions are tailored to your needs and could incorporate asana, restorative poses using props, breath work and pranayama, mudras and bandhas, cleansing techniques like nasal or digestive system detox, various meditation techniques that are systematic and progressive.

Yoga Nidra to augment healing and relaxation or to release samskaras and mental patterns. Building a mantra practice. Chanting as a tool to improve the voice, work with resonance and unlock mental patterns.

I have experience working with clients with health challenges, psycho-somatic based imbalances, anxiety, depression, common injuries, beginners through to advanced practitioners. I have trained Yoga teachers since 2009. I combine my vast yogic knowledge and experience plus 20 years of dedicated practice and yogic living to create a session that works for you.

"I have received guidance and support from Pragyadhara in regards to

establishing and maintaining a home practice and have benefited from using

her audio recordings of specific practices.​ I continue to derive inspiration for my

growth from her wealth of in-depth knowledge and experience. 

- Christina Te Kaha, Bay of Plenty

"I highly recommend Pragyadhara's one on one sessions, especially to those who are looking

for more than just the physical side of yoga. It only took one session to have such a significant impact on my personal yoga life journey. She listened to my needs and structured a program that was manageable with my busy lifestyle. I was amazed at how much information 

Pragyadhara gave me and the follow-up email was thorough.

- Bayan Khadem, Auckland

"I first came across Pragyadhara at a workshop she ran in Motueka 3 years ago and since my return to Auckland 2 years ago I have attended her weekly yoga classes, yoga days, workshops and had some private tuition. She has been a transformational part of my yoga journey in all aspects, spiritually, mentally and physically.

Pragyadhara has guided me on my journey with an understanding of where I am at, and has always been extremely generous with advice and suggestions to deepen and strengthen my knowledge of yoga and assisting me to transform my life. Pragyadhara lives her Yoga and is an embodiment of her teachings in practise and I would recommend her to anybody wishing to deepen their Yogic practise."
