Ashtanga Teacher holding the space for Mysore Practice at AYSG in December 2019
Xinia is from New Zealand (a little island in the South Pacific), and is a passionate Ashtanga practitioner and teacher. She is a body nerd who has extensive experience in the fields of dance, yoga, pilates, and performance coaching. Xinia has had a steady Yoga practice since 2006 and is continuously studying the practice.
She regularly visits India to study in Mysore with Ashtanga Guru Sharath Rangaswarmy, at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute, and in December 2017 received her blessing to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method - Authorisation level 2.
In 2014 Xinia also completed her Diploma in Yoga from the Wellpark Natural Therapies Collage in New Zealand. She graduated in December 2010 with a Bachelors degree in Dance from AUT University.
She is constantly excited by sharing the Ashtanga practice and loves the framework to work within to shape a practice that is forever.
Xinia's teaching manner is light and her approach individualised for the students needs.
