Waiheke Island

Patience has been practising yoga for 11 years, and began teaching in 2020. Inspired by experienced, passionate & down-to-earth teachers that make learning relatable & fun. She has trained in The Ralston Method 250 hour training with Nikki Ralston, specialising in functional anatomy & intelligent vinyasa sequencing, to add to a Traditional Hatha / “Integral” yoga training with lead trainer Sannyasi Pragyadhara that she had completed a few years earlier.

Patience lives on Waiheke Island with her fiancé & their growing family, soon to be welcoming her first child in December.

An open & understanding teacher, Patience knows how to keep the energy light with her down-to-earth nature, calming presence & sunny disposition. All contributing to her ability to put her students at ease.

She teaches a class that is accessible, grounding, warm & supportive. Leading with compassion, her soft confidence and clear voice supports and creates an inclusive atmosphere, catering to the varied needs that show up in a group environment.

Approachable & fun, Patience’s classes are empowering & relatable, giving you an opportunity to explore your practice at your own pace which trickles into all areas of your life.

Private Yoga (1-on-1)
If a group class seems a little daunting, or you are wanting some One-on-One focused sessions, Patience provides private sessions at the Waiheke Pilates Centre.

Bookings available as one-off sessions, or a 6-10 week plan tailored to your goals.

Examples of 6 & 10 Week Plans: Build Your Core, Body Confidence, Restoring Mobility & more.

Patience is also a Voice Coach, offering Private 1-on-1 Voice Coaching or Voice Exploration sessions. The latter can include a Crystal Sound Journey, enquire via
