Atmabhava_bio pic_harmonium-edit

Sn Atmabhava came to yoga for the health benefits and the practical and scientific methods immediately made a strong impression on him. He spent 10 years living the yogic lifestyle and teaching yoga, meditation and chanting at Anahata Yoga Retreat. Now back in NZ, Chris works therapeutically in Rimutaka prison and mental health sectors and continues to share on a variety different topics in workshops and weekend retreats around New Zealand.

Sannyasi Priyadhara

Sannyasi Priyadhara embarked on a yogic path of self transformation in her youth, which eventually led her to discover a sustainable way of living through Permaculture and Yoga. In a personal quest to deepen her experience and understanding, she spent a number of years living under the guidance of her teacher in a remote part of India, imbibing the teachings of Yoga as a practical science and a way of life, in the spirit of sannyasa, selfless service and dedication. Since her return to the west, she shares her inspiration with all who seek to express and connect with the positive and creative qualities within themselves, for the wellbeing of all.
