Helen was first introduced to Shadow Yoga on holiday in northland seven years ago. It made a lasting impression! Unlike other yoga she’d explored, Shadow Yoga’s unique approach to the practice and teaching of yoga resonated with her deeply and she recognised its effects on her overall wellbeing
In 2016 she returned to northland to develop a Shadow Yoga practice at YogaBeing with Jaymin McQueen’s guidance. Since then, she has also attended workshops with Shandor Remete, the founder of Shadow Yoga, and Emma Balnaves.
Helen is currently in the second year of an apprenticeship at YogaBeing.
With a background in mental health as a registered intern clinical
psychologist, she is also particularly passionate about the benefits of yoga in realising and supporting mental wellness. Helen also offers a Yoga in Schools program seeking to promote physical and mental wellbeing with youngpeople in northland.
