7 May, 2020 Update

Hi to all my yoga family,

I miss you and looking forward to seeing you all as soon as possible. The yoga studio will re-open under Alert level 2.

Here are some of the changes I will be implementing on opening. 

  1. The timetable will be temporarily adjusted while still on Alert level 2. To ensure everybody can get a class I will adding extra classes. 
    Thursday 11.30 – 12.45pm, Level 1 & 2

    To keep your immune systems strong and to get you home before dark and the cold evenings, the Wednesday 6.10pm class will be temporarily suspended.

    While we are in Alert Level 2, I will be implementing a booking system. This is to ensure that we manage class numbers well and you don't turn up only to find the class is full. Here is the process:

    1. Please text your full name and the class date and time you wish to attend to 021 687 159.
    2. If there is space in the class, you will receive a confirmation that your booking has been accepted. If the class is full, you will be placed on a waitlist and/or another class time on the same day will be suggested (if not already full).
    3. If, for some reason, you can no longer attend class, please follow the same process detailed in a) so the next person on the waitlist can take your spot.
    4. To make it fair for everyone, you will only be able to book classes week in advance.

    As we move through Alert Level 2 and better understand class numbers, I may look to adjust this process - thank you in advance for your patience as we trial this new system!

  2. Equipment: Bring your own yoga mat and towel if possible. There will be limited use of yoga props. We will use a bolster (covered with your own towel) and bricks. No straps, blankets or sandbags will be used during this period.
     
  3. Social distancing: The mats will be placed to the requirements of the Alert level 2 for social distancing.  Also, during this time I will not be adjusting through the yoga practice.  
  1. Do not attend classes if you feel unwell, have a cough or display any flu like symptoms.

  2. Hygiene etiquette: Please use the hand sanitizers provided before and after classes. There will be antibacterial sprays available for wiping down the bricks after each class.  The stairwell rail, the toilet, door handles on the entrance and the toilet will be cleaned in between classes.  Remember to be respectful and mindful of social distancing amongst each other. In particular, please show courtesy on entering and exiting the studio.

Can’t wait to see you all and let’s navigate this together like the amazing yoga team we have always been.  We’ve got this!

Testimonials

Going to Mande White Yoga has transformed my life. I used to be exhausted and injured from wokring hard as a lawyer and runnning every day, but now I am injury free and I have discovered new energy and fun through yoga. Mande has enabled me to do things I havent done since I was a gymnast in my youth and I have real pride in the flexibility and strength I have built through working hard under Mande’s guidance. My brain function has also imporved with all that blood to the head and that helps me a lot in my work.

I also feel younger now than I did when I started training with Mande at the start of 2015.I have tried other yoga instructors but Mande’s variety of movements, combination of building strength and flexibility, sequencing and inspirational teaching style is unbeatable. I know I will do yoga until I die. It has become an essentail part of my self care. Thank you Mande for giving me a new life!
Mai Chen, Managing Partner, Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Auckland.

Mande while teaches with a gentle yet powerful insight, her classes are intense yet informative and not only focus on the strengthening and flexibility parts of yoga but the healing and restorative process’s for the human body. The outcome, I feel refreshed, aligned and balanced with a calm stamina that allows me to push through work and life.
Ben Mitchell: Actor

Its not often you find a yoga instructor so good that you’re prepared to plan your whole day around trying to get to a mid week lunch time class but Mande Whites classes are so motivating.  Having had serious injuries Mande’s classes are perfect for me because she provides a style of yoga that is challenging enough for me and that compliments for existing gym strength work something you don’t find enough in the yoga world.  Mandes classes are functional, therapeutic but I always leave feeling like I have had a “proper” workout  a factor that is important to me her classes are the perfect compliment to my gym training and play a huge role in me keeping my body and mind in balance.  Her classes are educative, intensely challenging yet are also intuitively designed to reduced the stress, tension and pressure the stressful aspects of western lifestyles have on our bodies.  And because of this i don’t think any other instructor has inspired me to love yoga and integrate it into my life as much and Mande.
Rosie Bosworth

In the past I had always thought of yoga as being ‘nice to have’ as part of my workout schedule but could never really justify yoga as one of those workouts.  Mande’s offering of challenging classes with plenty of variety certainly changed my mind on that front.  Mande’s ability to change your thinking from ‘can’t do’ to ‘can do’ is very infectious and you always walk away after class with a sense of personal achievement.  I began doing Mande’s classes four years ago and my mindset has certainly charged over that time.  I can’t imagine my weekly workout schedule without those classes now!
Over the four years that I’ve been doing yoga I have noticed a tremendous change in my body both posturally and in the way that it moves.  The benefits of yoga have helped in the other aspects of my fitness regime too.  The positive improvements i’ve achieved in both my flexibility and mobility have enabled me to perform strength training exercises more correctly.  My body has become more balanced during the time that i have been doing yoga and I feel that i demonstrate a more youthful posture as a result.

Knight Coldicutt has had Mande White as our yoga instructor for a number of years.  We love doing yoga with Mande once a week as a corporate group, as it gives us all a chance to change gears and pace together, as well as taking a break away from the day to day routine of the screen and desk.  The stretching combined with Mande’s vast knowledge of health and nutrition sets us up for the balance of the week and takes us into the weekend with enthusiasm.  Mande is a special person and the way that she conducts her classes in a friendly, yet thorough and professional fashion, is a benefit to all that come in contact with her.
