Meet Larissa

To start 2021, we are very lucky to welcome the lovely Larissa O'Brien to the Kanuka Yoga team.



Larissa's personal teaching journey began in Byron Bay, Queensland in 2002.

Completing her first 200 hours in training in Hatha based yoga.

She moved back to her homeland of New Zealand in 2011 where she has been lucky enough to teach consistently in various studios within Auckland.


In 2017, Larissa attended another 200 hours of Intergrated Yoga Teacher Training at Kawai Purapura.

With each class she is privileged to teach, her aim is to give students a judgment free space to explore yoga. Always encouraging students to find new levels of possibilities in their bodies and minds. Providing tools to help take their yoga practice off the mat and into their daily lives.



"Yoga has been life changing for me, allowing me to see the positive possibilities in all situations. I hope for students attending my classes to light that same spark..... to live their best lives guided by the practice of yoga. Mind, body and spirit."



We look forward to expanding our community further with Larissa on the team =)
