The Dunedin Town Hall.

Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, Toni Childs, has designed a unique experience which combines movement, yoga, meditation and live singing to bring us into alignment with the beauty of who we are…

“I have designed a yoga experience which combines improvisational dance, meditation, story-telling and singing plus a number of gentle stretches… In creating this event, I have drawn on instruction from two important yoga teachers: Peewee G Patricia Howard and Chocho Saul David Raye. In addition to a lifetime of working as a performer… With a powerful sound bath singing as a backdrop – including my Emmy-Award winning song Because You’re Beautiful.
I encourage people to deeply connect with the beauty and wisdom of who they are.” Toni Childs

Come and celebrate your magnificence with a special 90 minute yoga and meditation experience… Toni’s powerful voice bathes you in sound and love – and aligns you with the truth – YOU are beautiful!

Toni_class copy“Each of us are beautiful, dynamic beings that are crying out to experience more self love, self appreciation, and self care. My morning practice is a way to blast the doors off the hinges to our personal cages of limitation, and engage in deepening our relationship with our ourselves.”

Inversions and Acro-Yoga with Lisa-Marie Nilsson 17, 18 Oct 2015

Take your yoga practice outside of the box with this workshop in Acroyoga and inversions!

Inversions are the class of yoga asana which literally invert the body, including handstands, forearm stands, headstands and shoulder stands – giving many body/mind/spirit benefits and FUN.

Acroyoga is a physical practice which combines yoga and acrobatics.In addition to the exercise and strength building aspects of Acro-Yoga the partner balancing can improve concentration and trust in others and FUN.


I’m Lisa,  a Swedish Yoga and Acrobatics teacher.

I have been traveling and teaching both yoga and AcroYoga full time for the past 5 years mostly around Asia and Europe but also in the Americas and Southern Africa. I’ve been touring Australia, NZ and Asia for the past 6 months.

I teach a mix of yoga/AcroYoga and Flying Therapeutics (bodywork, thai-massage) which focuses on the personal practice of the student.


So, lots of fun and play with arm-balances and inversions in partner-setting with the intense focus on alignment and balance from the AcroYoga practice, something that the student can bring back to their daily yoga practice.
