New yoga discount for WIFT members at Urban Ashram

Posted Monday 20 Feb 2017

Not having a constant income makes it harder to to put your wellbeing first - we've all been there at one time or another. Yoga teachers Nikki Ralston and Eridani Baker come from artistic backgrounds, so they understand.

That's why WIFT members can receive the student discount ($15 per class) for classes at Urban Ashram (2/49 Brown Street, Ponsonby, Auckland).

Nikki calls Urban Ashram "the heart of yoga in Auckland. We believe that everybody can benefit from the practice of yoga. In our light-filled boutique studio, you will learn, be seen and your practice will grow along with your smile."

Urban Ashram offers a range of classes, including:

- Ralston Method STRONG, CENTERED and ALIGNED classes, which blend together the best elements of hatha, vinyasa, precision alignment and mindfulness teachings. These are taught by the method's founder Nikki Ralston, who is the studio owner/operator.
- JIVAMUKTI YOGA, a vinyasa (flow) based practice where the spiritual teachings of yoga are linked with the physical practice of asana (poses). These are taught by Eridani Baker, who is the only certified practitioner currently teaching in New Zealand.
- BASICS, a class perfect for those just starting their yogic journey or those wishing to deepen their understanding of the fundamentals of the practice.
- MOVE with Sef Tuiasau, a Poliquin-qualified performance coach who has 15 years of professional sports experience. This movement-based, playful-yet-challenging class engages one's entire body in functional patterns.

Check out their classes, show your WIFT membership card and get yogic for less!
