Kanuka Yoga Space - Auckland, New Zealand

Thanks for taking a peek into Kanuka Yoga Space. Keep reading to learn more about our weekly yoga classes, experienced teachers, boutique online yoga platform and our NZ based yoga retreats!

A Neighbourly Yoga Studio in Hobsonville, Auckland

Breath, Movement and Mindfulness

We are a boutique yoga studio where you can breathe and move mindfully. We offer 21+ classes each week with nine unique teachers.

The studio is influenced by the natural beauty of New Zealand. We encourage you to bring your practice to the great outdoors close to Hobsonville and West Auckland: Catalina Bay, around the Auckland harbour, Waitakere Ranges, or the stunning West Coast beaches.

Our yoga studio is located on the ground floor, and is wheel-chair accessible (wide doors at entry and mobility friendly restroom). Please reach out if you'll be joining our class and need extra support; we are happy to help.

The room area is 110m2 with floor-to-ceiling windows on opposite ends of the room; lots of natural light! Windows are covered with sheer curtains for privacy. We often use scents like palo santo and an essential oil diffuser, if you are sensitive - please let us know in advance so we can accomodate you.

We aim to use natural cleaning products when we can (Green Goddess is our go-to supplier) and also recognise the need for regular, deeper-sanitisation during Level 2.

We hope you enjoy the space we have created to share with you!

On any given week, you can expect to see a mix of the following classes:

  • Slow Flow - fusion of hatha and vinyasa, but with slower, deeper poses

  • Restore - heal and rest your body and mind; influenced by the gentle aspects of yin and yoga nidra. Sometimes, accompanied by the soothing sounds of an acoustic guitar

  • Yin - a slow, meditative practice consisting of long held stretches (without muscle tension); focusing on the deeper tissues of your body

  • Power Flow - strength based, energetic classes to raise internal heat; suitable for those with an existing practice and who would like to move a little faster

  • Yin/Yang - a blend of two styles of yoga in one practice; long hold, passive-style poses (yin) fused with more dynamic sequences and standing poses (yang)

  • Prenatal Yoga - cultivate a sacred space to grow and bond with your baby, preparing for birthing day. Expect gentle movement with guided meditations to leave you grounded

  • Foundations of Flow - a yoga basics class which is suitable for complete beginners, or those looking to enhance their existing practice. Move slowly, and learn about each post in a more descriptive way.

Follow us on Facebook or Instagram - @kanukayoga - to hear about our unique Yoga Series we host at the studio; Prenatal Yoga, Introduction to Yoga, Mama + Baby and the occasional Kids Yoga Series.

You'll also hear about our bespoke Workshops and Events; Sound Healing Journeys, Cacao + Yoga Workshops, Women's Wellness Retreats and much more!

Private Yoga Classes

Provide your dedicated people with a sustainable wellness program; guided yoga, mindful meditation and mindset coaching.

Encourage your team to clear their minds, foster collaboration and effective communication, and embed healthy new, daily practices into their lives at work and home.

Sessions can be held virtually, within the office, at our boutique studio in Hobsonville or we can arrange an offsite location where a bigger emphasis on connection with others and inner exploration is encouraged.

Stu Larsen and Raquel Minh have collectively spent 20+ years in fast-paced, corporate environments so they understand the daily pressures that people regularly face. With that experience, they are able to present the yogic practices of conscious breath and movement in a real-life way that can be more attainable to new-comers wanting to find more space and calmness at work and home; life doesn't stop when people leave the office, so this practice is about finding more balance in the office, and at home.

All New Zealand owned and operated.

We work with a variety of well-known NZ retail brands to provide you with the best prices on yoga equipment, meditation cushions and bolsters, tea and a few other specialty products.

You can receive discounts when you purchase these brands online.
