We have a beautiful, intimate space at Aroha, Grey Lynn for our Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Yoga Nidra and healing Bellydance classes.

Our Yoga classes are taught by passionate and dedicated teachers who are very individual in their approach with each participant learning exactly what they need.

Rosanna teaches her healing Bellydance class for intermediate level ladies every Tuesday at 6pm at Aroha Love, and holds short beginners courses each term at the Auckland women’s centre in Grey Lynn on Friday evenings.

Aroha Dance classes are designed to connect women to their bodies in a fun, healing and holistic way.




Aroha Dance is a beautiful combination of Aroha (Love), bellydance, tantra philosophy, mudra and sisterhood. Join us to awaken your feminine energy, for grounding and connection to your body, seeing your body as a sacred and beautiful space.

Rosanna teaches women how to awaken their femininity and sensuality in a caring, safe and fun way. Learn about your chakra system, how to activate these energy centres through dance, breathwork, mudra and simple, earthy Egyptian bellydance routines that are so much fun.

Tuesday classes are for ladies who have experienced bellydance classes previously and have a good understanding of the technique.

Friday classes are for beginners and are a great way to learn the technique.

Class Schedule (2019) - Yoga Nidra with Nerine 

Dr Nerine Gregersen is a clinical geneticist and yoga nidra teacher at Aroha Love. The stress response is instinctive and automatic. However, the opposite, relaxation, has to be actively pursued. Yoga Nidra is a practice of guided relaxation. This ancient yogic practice therefore provides an effective tool for dealing with the stresses of modern-day living. It induces a state of deep relaxation and is regarded as ‘sleep with awareness’. In this deeply relaxed state the natural healing powers of body and mind are accessed, releasing physical, emotional and psychological tensions, while rejuvenating the whole system.

It is said that an hour of yoga nidra is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. Yoga Nidra is also used to bring about personal changes and manifest new directions in one’s life. This is achieved through reinforcing a personal resolve or intention (called a sankalpa): when in a deeply relaxed state, the subconscious mind is accessible and receptive to instruction. The practice has benefits even from the first session, but the effects are cumulative. Many people experience improved sleep, relief from stress and anxiety, and a general sense of wellbeing and vitality.

The process of Yoga Nidra requires that you lie completely still in a comfortable position while a facilitator verbally guides you through a series of mental steps. The result is progressively deeper and deeper relaxation.

When :

Saturday - every fortnight.
