Vinyasa + Restorative + Kids Yoga Teacher | Ayurveda Enthusiast | 200-CYT | 500-CYT (in progress)
Simone, founder of Tickle My Feet Yoga, shares her love of yoga with light-hearted, feel-good Vinyasa Flow yoga classes. Focusing on syncing movement with breath, she will share ancient yogic philosophy and Ayurveda wisdom that will help you peel back any restrictions to open your heart, body and soul to your best self.
A certified Level 1 (and working towards Level 2) Yoga teacher, Simone brings Wanganui its very first Vinyasa Flow classes – a yang style suited to those after a modern, flowing practice that builds strength, flexibility in both body and mind. Simone also offers deeply nourishing and restful Restorative yoga once a week, and kids yoga mindfulness classes for children at her studio and in pre/schools across Whanganui.
Off the mat, Simone works as a communications freelancer and is Mum to two lively monkeys. Healthy-eating and living is her thing after experiencing its positive healing effects on her own wellbeing. With constant curiosity for knowledge and a desire to help others live pain-free, Simone continues to educate herself through further training in both yoga and yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda.

Yin + Meditation + Laughter Yoga Teacher | Music Man
Simon (Si) has experienced first-hand the mind/body/soul benefits of practicing yoga and meditation for more than a decade. He says he is grateful for the sense of peace, clarity and freedom that it has brought to his over-active mind.
Trained under modern Yin Yoga legend Nik Robson, Si will soon be offering Yin Culture classes from our studio – a simple and spacious practice to help anyBODY slow down, tune in, let go and wake up.
An intermediate school teacher by day, Si currently shares many of his yoga and mindfulness tools in the classroom, including Laughter Yoga (yes it’s a thing!) – helping to bring more focus, calm and joy to his students.
An ex-London DJ, music lover and musician (he currently plays bass in local band Kessel), Si’s classes will be full of blissful, centering sounds that will help you to let go of tension and rest within. Si is the genius behind the Tickle My Feet Yoga playlists on Spotify that are available for you to enjoy.
Hatha Yoga Teacher | Sub Teacher Extraordinaire | 200-CYT
Sarah is a certified Hatha Yoga teacher and a regular student at Tickle My Feet Yoga studio. Sarah steps in as a studio class teacher substitute from time-to-time and shares beautiful, heart-felt yoga classes.
Sarah has been practicing yoga for some 10 years. She says it came into her life at the perfect time during her university days when she needed more peace and calm. The path of yoga has been part of her life ever since.
Sarah says child’s pose (balasana) is her favourite, one she often surrenders into to connect with her child-like ways – important we think, given her day job as a primary school teacher!
