Brigid Macalister

I am a trained yoga teacher in both Classical Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga and also a trained Thai Yoga Massage therapist. I have a daily yoga practice and a strong understanding of health and wellbeing.   I began my massage therapy training in 1999 and yoga teacher training in 2002 and have worked with many groups and individuals since.  I have designed yoga programmes for people with a wide variety of needs including athletes, older people and people with disabilities.

Prior to becoming a Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist I worked as an Occupational Therapist for many years in a variety of fields including serious injury rehabilitation, work site/ergonomic assessments, mental health, youth health, older person’s health and community.

I work from my Exhale Clinic, at home in Pyes Pa on the outskirts of Tauranga.  I also currently teach yoga classes at the Tauranga Yoga Centre.  When not working in my clinic, i enjoy growing a diversity of organic fruit and vegetables with my partner Tony on our small block.

I am passionate about supporting people to develop healthy habits that serve them well and fit in with their life and daily commitments.
