About the Teacher:
Hello my name is Machel Burgering and I am very excited about having the opportunity to teach Prenatal Yoga at Yummy Yoga. I have been practising Yoga since 2007 and in 2008 I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in South India in Ashtanga Yoga. I have also practised other styles of yoga since such as Iyengar and Sivananda yoga. This year I went to Australia and completed a certificate specialising in women's yoga and health with 'Bliss Baby' Yoga which also spurred me on to do a specialised training in Prenatal Yoga and Post-Natal Yoga with 'Bliss Baby' here in Auckland. I also am a qualified massage therapist through the New Zealand College of Massage.
I am passionate about women's health and bringing yoga into their daily lives to support and nurture women through the various stages that we move through in life. For me yoga is a joy, it nourishes my body and soul and brings peace and calm to my mind and emotions. It helps to keep me grounded, to live more in the moment and above all, to have compassion for self and others. I am very much looking forward to sharing yoga with you to support you through your pregnancy with ease and grace. Namaste.
“Prenatal yoga is by far the best hour of my week! You feel so welcomed, supported and nurtured during this class and ultimately relaxed and prepared for the wonderful journey of pregnancy and child birth.
Machel delivers the class content in such a warm, gentle manner and I always leave the class feeling amazing. I can not recommend this course enough!” Lauren
"I began prenatal yoga with Machel at 7 weeks. Even though I still had lots of flexibility and energy at that stage it was nice to have some time set aside to really tune into my body and baby. The classes have supplied me with many poses and breathing techniques that will be handy I'm sure for when I go into labour. Machel is a very experienced prenatal yoga teacher who has a lovely calming nature. I appreciated the extra information she had compiled and supplied us with, her passion in this area of yoga was very apparent. I also really enjoyed the space where the classes were held, so peaceful and warm. I highly recommend these classes to women who are expecting!" Hannah
