Meet Billie!

Here is a little more about Billie:

Billie has recently moved to Katikati after travelling the world with her partner, and is looking forward to becoming part of the wonderful community.

She is originally from Rotorua and has a background in dance, including completing a bachelor’s degree in Contemporary Dance, and has taught ballet, hip hop, jazz, tap and contemporary. She discovered yoga as a part of a holistic healing programme after struggling with severe migraines as a result of coeliac disease.

Billie quickly became passionate about yoga and travelled to India to complete a 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certificate through AyurYoga Eco Ashram. She has also gained a 50 hour teaching certificate in Yin Yoga. Billie loves developing classes to suit various ages and experience levels, and can teach many styles from gentle, restorative yoga through to intensive Vinyasa flow classes.

Billie is passionate about holistic health and nutrition, organic gardening and creative pursuits including sewing and crafts.
