Junior provides ukulele accompaniment; it may not be a standard feature of classes, though.

While walking along the Waikanae River yesterday, Geoffrey and Eva came upon Catherine Knight demonstrating her business service for passers-by. Hauora (Maori for health) yoga offers weekly classes from the base in Waikanae and weekend sessions at the Hauora Yoga Barn in the picturesque Pohangina Valley.

Catherine is a 500 hour RYS (registered yoga school) trained yoga teacher; she gained her qualifications through the Kawai Purapura Yoga School and New Zealand Yoga Collective.

Participants are promised they will finish a class feeling invigorated yet relaxed, energised and restored.

“Come along and join us for a class this week.” — website
