Tune In - Music and Yoga Session
11:00 AM11:00

Tune In - Music and Yoga Session

A simply beautiful collaboration - meditative classical yoga shapes guided by Radha with the background of life mellow acoustic music by professional musician Phill Jones.

Tune In-to your own self, to your rhythm and the music of your heart.

Tune In is a journey through all the layers, bringing us into a space of union, yoga. This practice combines asana with a process of cultivating awareness and presence, and dissolution into sound.
In a gentle yet powerful sequence of yoga postures, we will explore the energy centres - chakras, backed-up by a musical piece created on the spot in resonance with their specific energy.

Based on her experience in teaching Hridaya hatha yoga for years, Radha guides this class as a combination of deeply relaxing and some more challenging postures - so that all aspects of life are present, all five elements: earth, water, fire, air, ether. This is a practice which touches far deeper dimensions of our being than the physical. Triggering the awareness of the Heart, sense of simplicity and deep peace, it will leave you nourished and more connected with yourself.

The musical background is provided by professional musician and award winning composer Phill Jones, playing a rich variety of instruments from around the world. A true Sound Journey -a treat for your years and for the soul!

Nourish yourself and open to harmony for the body and soul!

Rise Yoga 100hour Immersion
to Mar 10

Rise Yoga 100hour Immersion

Are you ready for your life to meet you in your yoga?

You’ve come to the right place.

On this incredible Rise Yoga 100 hour Immersion, and you will:

  • dive deep into the tantric philosophy of Waking Up - a practical toolkit designed by ancient yogis to yogify your whole life, from the inside out
  • learn techniques of mantra (sound), pranayama (breath work), kriya (cleansing) and meditation that will super-charge your asana practice (yoga poses)
  • explore the anatomy of embodiment - a deep, felt understanding within in your own body
  • take all of this into an incredible 4-5 hour daily sadhana (devotional practice) of mantra, pranayama, kriya, asana and meditation
  • transition back into your life with your own consistent and self-nourishing yoga practice
  • develop a greater understanding and embodiment of what deep aliveness and fulfilment really means for you.

If you’re considering teaching yoga, by the end of the Immersion you will know what the right next step is for you. If you decide to teach, the next step is to add on a Rise Yoga 100 hour Teacher Training in Auckland, Raglan, Mt Maunganui or Bali (which, combined with your 100 hour Immersion, gives you the required 200 hour teaching certification).

About Adele:

Adele’s dream is to live in a world where yoga is medicine, desire is celebrated, everyone exudes aliveness, and dancing in the streets is highly encouraged – if not mandatory.

Adele has a deep love of research, exploration and experimentation. Her life to date has seen this passion directed toward the tradition, styles, tools and methods of yoga, and related areas such as restoring wellbeing, healing, working skilfully with the mind, and finding her own true meaning and purpose. As well as being the founder and lead facilitator of RISE Yoga, Adele is an ERYT500hr yoga teacher with advanced trainings in Embodied Flow, Yoga Medicine and Prana Flow.

“Put the warmest heart and graceful action with shockingly razor sharp intellect and wit, package it in a beautiful embodiment of a human being and you get Adele Kinghan.  I have had the pleasure of knowing Adele for six years, and consider her to be the full package of a master facilitator.  Adele has the rare capacity to make anyone feel joyous to be alive.  She somehow makes the most complicated things seem easily achievable, and approaches each day and task with untroubled competence evocative of all the world’s greatest leaders.  Her depth and breadth of yogic knowledge is paralleled by few.  I would highly recommend any training with Adele as a rich tapestry of deep learning, and an elegant dive into being, with a great great teacher.”  Tara Judelle – Embodied Flow™

Rise Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
to Apr 4

Rise Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training


4 separate immersive weeks throughout the year. Dates are as follows.
- Immersion 1: 29th March to 2nd April
-Immersion 2: 17th May to 22nd May
-Teacher Training 1: 10th September to 15th September
-Teacher Training 2: 29th October to 3rd November

You are able to book in for the immersion parts 1 and 2 for a deeper exploration of your own personal practice, it is then optional to take the 2 teacher training components to complete the 200hour YTT certification.

RISE is a Yoga Alliance certified 200hour program, recognised by and registered through the School of Embodied Flow™ and grounded in vinyasa yoga and tantric teachings. Backed by several years of experience in teaching yoga teacher trainings at the 200hour basic and the 300 hour advanced training, we commit to offering the highest standard of teaching methods.

Led by seasoned faclitator Adele Kinghan, this immersion and teacher training offers a skillful blend of movement, asana (yoga poses), meditation, philosophy, anatomy, psychology and science as technologies for acquiring an integrated sense of strength, ease and connectivity in the human form. We meet on the mat as a place to discover your own innate capacity to step into a life that is in flow, where you can thrive in every layer your being and take that awakened mind out into world.

Only Embodied Flow™ teacher training offered in New Zealand

Teaching yoga will likely be one of the most rewarding and awe-inspiring paths you’ll embark upon. Facilitating yoga experiences – in essence being a yoga teacher – is much more than cueing a series of physical shapes. Learning about and teaching poses is merely the gateway (one of many gateways) for something much bigger. 

View it as six months to upgrade your life.

In this yoga immersion and training we bring to life the potential in our practices with a limited-size group of curious people who are ready to question, explore and shake things up.

We create spaces where we feel that we belong, where we feel at home. We inspire hope, belief and trust. We move and be moved, challenge and be challenged, with the perfect blend of practical knowledge and spiritual meaning.

We examine how we doubt and suffer and alchemize it with vulnerability and love. We create boundaries to find a framework for freedom, and we crack our perspective wide open. We come together to laugh and deepen our joy and shed our pain. We find stillness. We articulate and bring into being all that’s possible within, while reveling in how truly magical – and similar – we actually are.

It’s for this reason that RISE is affiliated with Embodied Flow™. This method is the foundation for how you grow into yourself – the self that is beyond your current day construct of who you are. The self that is limitless and full of agency. The self that is easeful and all knowing. The self that is true, conscious and imbued with wellbeing.

Intelligent, inclusive and enlivening yoga for a healthy, resilient, awake body and mind.

4separate immersive weeks to transform everything you love and know to be true – in the dance of the highs and lows of your humanness – into the artistry of teaching yoga and facilitating change.

Join us in 2018 and… 

Be schooled in teaching methodology in the style of vinyasa, yin and Embodied Flow and craft classes you’re inspired to take and teach
Dive into embodied experiential anatomy and alignment
Learn and practice theming strategies to take your students on an expansive and up-leveling journey
Create intelligent and skillful vinyasa sequences and find your own language to inspire classes and movements

OpenFloor Movement series At the Raglan Yoga Loft

Saturday 3.00pm for 75 - 90 minutes

Such a good time of year to come in to the warm and enjoy to get our bodies moving! 

Open Floor is a conscious movement practice for building muscular and emotional intelligence, mindfulness and soulfulness.

Using universal movement principles, such as breath, grounding and centering, our aim is to become more embodied or at home, for this beautiful ride of life, present for anything and everything

Conscious dance practice is not about learning to dance but dancing to learn. It can help us move and include the juicy times of joyful release, as well as the challenging moments. To be fluid, flexible and free to experienceall of ourselves is one of the greatest life skills we can develop.

Classes facilitated by Sarah Edwards, OpenFloor Teacher Trainee and experienced group facilitator and therapist. 

What should I expect?

A safe supportive space to move with no pressure or expectation. No need to have prior experience or learn any moves.

Expect great Diverse soundscapes and an opportunity to dance & immerse yourself in a diverse mix of ambient, funk, acid jazz, psy-trance, reggae, folktronic, classical, hip hop, latin, afrobeat, pop, rock, world music. 

Expect to move at your own energy level.

We start with a lightly facilitated "warm in" to good sounds to support you to get your body moving and grooving.

Then each class has a theme which you will be guided to explore in your own way and sometimes with others. 

Creating a supportive. connected group of movers is a key focus

Expect to be moved, Expect to connect, Expect to transform something! 

What should I bring?

Bring all of you! Open Floor is about Moving and Including whatever we're with.

People usually dance bare foot or with light dance shoes if they prefer.

Good to have a water bottle.
