Juliet has practiced Yoga since 1990. She is the owner of the Papakura Yoga Centre in Auckland, which she established in 2001.
Here she leads a Team of experienced teachers who together create an environment of acceptance, accessibility and community. Her desire to learn more about Yoga led her to complete her initial Teacher Training with the NZ branch of the International Yoga Teachers Association in the late 1990s. Juliet went on to study extensively with Donna Farhi completing her Advanced Teacher Training and assisting her on workshops in NZ and Australia. Around this time she discovered Restorative Yoga and did several workshop trainings with Judith Lasater.
Yoga continues to be a learning practice for Juliet. Her curiosity about the human body and movement has led her in recent years to study with Katy Bowman, Jules Mitchell and Yoga Detour. This self development is reflected in her own practice and teaching - infusing both with a balance of natural human movement, somatic awareness, modern biomechanics integrated with the ancient wisdom of Yoga.
Juliet brings her passion for Yoga to her students. She encourages each person to meet themselves with complete acceptance whilst at the same time opening the pathways for transformation.
