Welcome! Kia ora! Greetings!
If you are ready to improve the quality of your life, you can with a wholistic Yoga lifestyle. Yoga is the wholistic lifestyle path that will give you a fit, strong, healthy, and vibrant body and mind. Resulting in you having a more joyful and fulfilling life.
The ancient teachings and practices of Yoga teach you to take back control of your life so you can live with meaning, purpose, fulfillment and satisfaction.
The Yoga Lifestyle path defines four glorious goals and measures of success for your life. These goals and measures of success are:
* Goal one - Kama - You are meant to experience enjoyment, feeling good, uplifted and pleasure every single day and most (90%) of the time,
* Goal two - Artha - You are meant to be prosperous and move forward in your life feeling abundant and with vibrant, good health,
* Goal three - Dharma - You are meant to be living your life on purpose for you - you will not be happy until you step into living your purpose (job/career/calling),
* Goal four - Moksha - You are meant to feel free and fearless and wake up empowered each day with the knowing that you are the creator of your experience and your ultimate happiness.
As non-dual Tantric yogini's we believe you deserve to and should live the successful life of your dreams and you should achieve the glorious goals of the Yoga lifestyle path. If you are a successful woman who ticks all or most of the boxes of being *successful* in the western world and have achieved it all on the outside (house, career, money) but still:
* feel dissatisfied, or like something is missing,
* have complaints about your life and wish it could be different/better,
* dislike, resent or hate your *great* job that makes you *good* money and gives you status,
* are dissatisfied with your body, worried about how you are aging, or have aches and pains and issues with your body,
* are struggling with perimenopause and menopause symptoms, like not sleeping well. Or are just not sleeping well due to other factors like a busy mind,
* are always too busy, overscheduled and rushing from one thing to another,
* are too anchored in your masculine and/or disconnected from your feminine nature,
* are stressed, anxious, depressed, lacking confidence and self-esteem,
* have no time for yourself because work, kids, family and friends get all your time and energy,
* struggle in your relationships - whether romantic, at work, with family or friends,
* are self-soothing with low-grade (or serious) addiction(s) like drinking, or exercising a little too much to distract yourself,
* are simply longing for or seeking something more;
these are all signs you are out of balance and are being called to live a more enjoyable and satisfying life. These are signs you are being called to balance your life and find a whole new level of success with a wholistic Yoga Lifestyle.

Audrie and Kristina both achieved significant success in the corporate world but always felt something was missing. Their journey to find the joy, abundance, purpose and freedom they were seeking led them to create Yoga to Transform, so they could offer the wholistic Yoga lifestyle path via classes, courses and coaching programmes to the successful modern woman who wants and knows there is more for herself.
Meet Audrie and Kristina
I always thought I'd like to do yoga and about 20 years ago I started going to a night class at a local high school. I was pretty out of touch with my body, no spatial awareness and had to look behind me to see where my foot was!
I liked the feeling of moving my body and for once there wasn't any comparison with others.
I made it a regular practice and when I moved back to Christchurch I met a new yoga teacher - Kristina! She encouraged me to do some weekend workshops and next thing I was doing a handstand for the first time in my life!
But really for me it wasn't all about the handstands. It was me being me in my body, moving it, feeling great and enjoying my life.
After earthquakes, hip joint replacements, redundancy and COVID I decided to take my life in a new direction and began my journey as a yoga teacher. I love it. The study, the teaching and the daily practice which brings me joy (most days)!
I am also a fully trained Movingness teacher and love working with beginners and seniors helping them to feel movement and joy in their bodies.

I believe in the power of the Yoga lifestyle to completely and positively transform your life. If you are ready to take your *good* life; that has something missing, and you are not quite satisfied - but you can't quite put your finger on what it is - and make it a great life. Then I am your Yoga teacher and wholistic lifestyle coach.
My passion is to share with you how you can positively transform your life, through the ancient secrets of the Yoga lifestyle practices. Non-dual Tantric Yoga is a path of living fully and vibrantly, ensuring you enjoy this life through expressing your full potential for health and living with purpose. Ultimately for me nondual Tantric Yoga is a spiritual practice. There is always the opportunity to take your experience of life, whether it is in a yoga pose or in an uplifting state of being, like joy, to a deeper level.
The Yoga lifestyle is a wholistic path that will support you to feel like you are continuing to grow as a person; it helps you to learn about yourself, the nature of life and how to navigate your life with a little more intention, purpose, peace, calm, joy and love. You can create the life of your dreams with this wholistic lifestyle path and leave living the life you think you should behind.

“I’m doing the Yoga to Transform Sleep course and love the daily structure and guidance, along with the supporting information. I noticed that as I paid more attention to my need for sleep, I began to take better care of myself in the other areas of my life. This course has been life-changing!.”
I like Audrie's teaching style. Her explanations make sense to me. I particularly like the way that she uses the same descriptions each week as that helps me to remember what to do.
Please add any other comments:
Room great. Parking easy. Location easy to find.
Deep Rest and Nourishment Mini Retreat:
It was great, I knew it would be relaxing but it was really useful to takeaway some new breathing techniques and some additional bolster poses. The half day exceed my expectations.

I feel the more I do this type of thing the more I am learning about myself and how to relax
