Karen Waddicor

Yoga Trainer & Yoga

Therapist

 

 

Karen began a Yoga apprenticeship in Sydney in 2000, where she taught yoga for 3 years.

While there she had the opportunity to work with Pre and Post Natal yoga and enjoyed Mums and Babies classes. Having a young family of her own she has personally experienced the benefits of yoga during and after pregnancy.

 

Previous training has had a strong Iyengar influence. Karen’s class shows a focus on movement with breath, while keeping awareness of alignment. https://www.taurangayoga.org.nz/classes/

 

Karen is also trained in NVC, Hakomi. She is a proud Mum of two teenage girls, enjoys being in nature, doing handstands on the beach, and is renown for her capacity to connect with people in all walks of life.

Gillian came to a time in mid-life where she was managing chronic pain. She had sustained injuries from a decade of training unbroken horses.

 

Her 20 year career as a Sculptor and later a teacher of sculpture had left her with extensive repetitive strain injury. She took 4 years to do the full Feldenkrais training, initially to treat her own problems. She  realized that this teaching is relatively rare in NZ and she would have to teach herself to share the wisdom which she feels holds its’ own particular place in the bodywork spectrum. www.feldenkrais.org.nz  is the guild website where there is extensive information available.

Gillian Elmslie MNZFG (Feldenkrais teacher)

 

 

This retreat is a unique opportunity to experience the principles of mindfulness in the context of movement, engagement with nature, communication and your inner landscape.

 

The retreat program is full of opportunities to participate and try out the different way's to experience and know yourself in relationship to nature, to others and to yourself.

 

While the days are structured, there is freedom and flexibility around how you spend your time and how much you engage with the group.

 

Foundational NVC concepts and teachings will be weaved daily throughout the program with the support and flexibility for more advanced NVC facilitation for those people already experienced with the foundations.
