  • Yoga + Movement

    Yoga sessions where the only thing that is mandatory is doing what feels good to YOU. No flexibility approbation, no previous experience needed, but only yourself as you are at this exact same moment. All classes are all levels, and variations always offered. We promise, they will all make you feel damn good!

  • Massage

    From her heart through her hands...Alexandra has fifteen years of experience initially from France and trained around the world, she has developed her own healing technics! Massage helps reduced muscle tension - improved circulation - stimulation of the lymphatic system. Reduction of stress hormones. Relaxation - increased joint mobility and flexibility. Improved skin tone. Improved recovery of soft tissue injuries and feeling emotionally released.

  • Breathwork + mind

    Breathwork sessions, chanting and guided meditation where there is no need to be a strong practitioner, or having monk's years of practice to be able to breathe, re center and meditate. Holistic practices that help you increase your overall wellbeing, and create the change you want to see.

Winter forms our character and brings out our best. It is the perfect time to heal. The stillness of the frozen air heightens each of the senses. The combination of the yin yoga practice, pranayama and meditation will allow us to slow down, relax and turn inward. Take this Winter Solstice themed yoga retreat as an opportunity to let go of the darkness and celebrate the light. 90 minutes Yoga classes twice a day, meditation, nature walks, delicious vegetarian food and friendship. Restore and reset with Alexandra and Natalie at Samadhi Retreat Otaki.

"Ultimate relaxation, tension-relief and healing"

Dr. Lori Leigh

I’ve received some of the best massages of my life from Alexandra. She’s professional, ethical and intuitive. She meets you and your body where they are at in an empathetic way. I always feel as though she’s customized my treatment to provide ultimate relaxation, tension-relief and healing. I leave rejuvenated and awakened to the breath of life.

"Very professional and individually targeted 'hands on' treatments"

Leigh

What more can I say!! Alexandra is an amazing massage therapist!! I find it very easy to relax with her very professional and individually targeted 'hands on' treatments!! She knows exactly what is needed and goes that extra mile to achieve it! I personally can highly recommend Alexandra for her exceptional massage skills and her lovely warm caring nature..

"Excellent at assessing and connecting with people"

John H.S.

I’ve been going to Alexandra’s yoga classes for about a year- most recently at her ‘Now Breathe’ Studio in Kilbirnie, Wellington. Speaking as a late starter to yoga…with a relatively inflexible and slightly injured old body… Alex has been a great instructor - gently progressing me through a series of stretches, poses, breathing, meditating and Hatha yoga philosophy. She is excellent at assessing and connecting with people in the group and shaping each session so individuals can safely challenge themselves at whatever level they are, through her clear guidance and demonstration. Alex brings great energy and humour to each session and the classes are nicely paced with just the right amount of structure. The classes at Now Breathe Studio have been a good scale (6-10) with a friendly mix of people of all gender and age. The studio has a light and relaxed atmosphere with space and time to share a surprisingly good herb tea during and between sessions. I highly recommend Alexandra and her yoga classes at Now Breathe Studio.
