The Teaching Team
Dan has been working in massage body work for more than 10 years studying in New Zealand and abroad. He specializes in fascial stretch therapy, myofascial release, and deep tissue massage. Dan is looking forward to facilitating a workshop to inform understanding of physical aches and pains in the body and how to pinpoint restrictions.
Taane Mete Iwi/Tribe: Ngati Kahungunu me Ngati Koriki – Kahukura.
Born and raised in Napier, Aotearoa New Zealand, Taane is the youngest of seven and was a free spirited and wildly nomadic child who began imagining his career at a young age. Little did his younger self realise that daydreaming a world that was euphoric, blissful, and creative would become his spiritual life journey. Mete draws on 4 decades of knowledge in dance, yoga, and creative facilitation in his work.
Kayla-iwi…. (Ngāti Porou)
Kayla Atkins-Gordine is a catalyst in merging the dual cultures of Aotearoa, embodying the space in between indigenous and western worlds. Her upbringing speaking Te Reo Māori called her on a heart journey to discover her whakapapa from Ngāti Porou. Her unique background has shaped her worldview through two contrasting perspectives and has nurtured a deep connection to both our land and people, the seen and the unseen. She has immersed herself in a variety of meditation and yoga practices, trainings, teachings, wellness courses and shares her voice and vibration through Māori Waiata. Her creation of Āwhina Wellness, as a Holistic Health Coach, is a source of inspiration to help others embark on the journey of self-love, discovery, truth, and transformation
Jock is a very dedicated wellness facilitator who has developed skills and knowledge from potent life lessons and 8 years of practicing. This dedication to learning from his own practice creates subtle, yet powerful offerings that are heartfelt, thought-provoking, and often life changing. Jock received his 200-hour yoga teaching certification under the International Yoga Alliance in October 2019, at Talalla Retreat, Sri Lanka; trained under Carolyn Anne Budgell and Clara Roberts-Oss who was trained by a world-renowned pioneer in yoga – Shiva Rea. Since his training, Jock has hosted multiple empowering yoga retreats, and various wellness workshops and instructed at various yoga studios around New Zealand.
Catherine has been inspired to make a change to the women’s wellness space. This space is saturated with booty transformations, flatter tummies, and shifting curves. But for many these are only skin-deep. Because how and why these things happen is as much, if not more important than that they do. She is driven by the belief that true wellness starts from the inside out. From a place of discovery and growth, where you unlock your abundant potential and feel empowered to reach it with confidence. It is her dream that each woman who has her life changed by her guidance becomes an inspiration to others – of a Wellness measured not just by the physical but by the fulfilment and enrichment of the lives around you.
