About Xinia


Xinia has found herself to be an absolute mind and body nerd.

Over the past 15 years she has had extensive experience in the fields of dance, yoga, pilates, and performance coaching. 

She has had a steady yoga practice since 2006 and is continuously studying the practice.

She visits India regularly to study in Mysore with Ashtanga Guru Sharath Rangaswarmy, at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute and in 2017 received her blessing to teach the Ashtanga method: Authorisation level 2. She has become dedicated to learning and sharing the practice and committed to keep the ancient traditions alive in today’s modern world.

In 2010 she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Dance from AUT University. Here is where she started to learn applied anatomy through movement. She has performed and choreographed in many festivals and companies around the world and formed her own dance collective: Trip Stumble Fall Productions in New Zealand.

In 2014 Xinia completed a Diploma in Yoga from the Wellpark Natural Therapies Collage in New Zealand. This integrated more Hatha yoga and therapy practices into her teachings and personal practice.

Her work has allowed her to teach internationally in Australia, Bali, Egypt, Singapore, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. She has acquired an E-RTY500 teachers status and is a registered Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider.

She loves how every body is unique and each soul comes to the practice of yoga a little differently than the last.
