Connect with our presenters
Greer Taffard | Yoga with Greer
Greer is a mum of 3 beautiful children and a yoga teacher at the wonderful Golden Yogi studio in Takapuna.
She teaches Pregnancy Yoga, Vinyasa, Yin Yang and Mums and Bubs and feels so blessed to experience and share the special journey of people's yoga practice.
She is passionate about connecting within to energize and restore while cultivating peace, love and happiness. So often life's commitments, pressure and 'shoulds' often draw us away from our centre, but yoga has provided Greer with the tools during the ups and downs and share the same this with other mums. She loves how simple yet profound it is to come back to our breath, and move and nourish our bodies in a healing way, a key to self love.
