About Us

Our Teachers

Meditation New Zealand (also known as New Zealand School of Meditation) has been teaching simple and practical forms of yoga and meditation for over thirty years.  These methods can be practiced alone or with a group of friends and are fun for young and old alike. By incorporating these practices into your daily life,
you will be able to 
experience the inner peace, harmony and purpose that we are all searching for.

Meditation New Zealand is a non-sectarian, non-profit organization and classes are given free

as a service to the community.

All of our teachers have been practicing a Yoga Meditation Lifestyle for many years. 

Having directly experienced the wonderful benefits this has brought to their own lives, they are

all motivated to help others by passing on the gift they have received.
