Ari Goldstone – Yoga

Yoga has been a meaningful part of my life for almost twenty years.
I started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2000 when I was living in Auckland. I subsequently moved to New York for six years and Sydney for three years before settling in Wellington in 2013. During those years, I was fortunate to experience the teachings of many great yogis including the late Sri K.Pattabi Jois, Manju Jois, Greg Tebb, Eddie Stern, David Swenson, David Roche and Dena Kingsberg. I currently practice daily under the guidance of Stewart Harris, as well as regularly attend Peter Sanson's workshops.

Yoga has given me a sense of wellbeing. It assisted me managing stress when I was working in a busy corporate office and helped me through the pregnancies and births of three daughters. I'm also grateful to have met a large number of wonderful people in the yoga community. It is such a joy to share what I've learned through yoga and I'm appreciative of Erika for giving me an opportunity to teach at Hot Yoga Lounge.
