Attraction details
Owner description: Here at Aoteayoga we provide World-Class Yoga instruction offering various disciplines to suit all Yogis & Yoginis. Located in Christchurch for Group-classes of all levels. And in the stunning French Settlement of Akaroa (80 kilometers away) for retreats & workshops. Akaroa's intrinsic beauty year round offers each practitioner a sense of connectedness and vitality due to the rolling hills, turquoise harbor and the living life throughout the area.

I had high hopes for this retreat and Jess greatly exceeded them! Although we focused mainly on the Ashtanga primary series we tried something different during each class which was great. Jess is a fun and inspirational teacher and takes the time to get to know each of her students - both personally and in terms of their yoga ability. The social aspect of the weekend was also a highlight. I can't wait to go on another retreat!

Really enjoyed the whole weekend, was great to get away and just relax and focus on yoga with no other distractions. Jess is a passionate and experience teacher and it shows in her classes. definately go again, as it helps improve your own techniques.

It certainly does help to progress forward in ones practise when the only focus for 3+ days is Yoga, Yoga & more Yoga! Maintenance is the key, so keep your practise up by either working through the Sun Salutations or coming to classes:) Sat Nam, Jess

I am a big fan of Aoteayoga. Our teacher ( and owner) Jessie Lynch manages great and beneficial classes for everyone,despite a various levels and abilities of participants which attend classes in a different times.Her friendly and supportive aproach makes you progress quickly in a way to improve you body and mind. After just 3 weeks of attending classes at Aoteayoga I have noticed improvement -my usual back pains ease off significantly and my body feels stronger and leaner.At Aoteayoga you can choose between several types of yoga-from gentle aproach (you still work out and sweat though!) to more powefull types.(At the beggining of each class everyone asked individually what areas you would like to work on today!).Jessie also organized and lead the Akaroa yoga retreat, which took place at the end of January.The participants had an awersome weekend filled with yoga and meditation at two beatifull locations in Akaroa.And on top of it there was a plenty of opportunity to socialize-Jessie organize lunch and dinner for the retreat participants which was a great way to round up the yoga practice and make new interesting friends.I have been at quite a few yoga classes in gym and studious in NZ and overseas.Aoteayoga is defenetely stand out as a friendly, fun, professional place which has a very dedicated and enthusiastic teacher.Highly recommended place to attend in Christchurch if you looking for physical well being, health improvement, shaping you body ,relaxation. Just one class on Satarday morning will give your weekend a great start.
