New yoga studio and health centre


Two Queenstown businesses hope to make Frankton’s Remarkables Park the focus for holistic health in
the district.

Established downtown yoga studio Nadi is expanding and opening a second studio, above Noel Leeming. 

It will share the 126sq m premises with Health Connect NZ, which specialises in osteopathy, sports and
remedial massage and other holistic treatments.

Nadi owner Sandi Murphy says: “The intention is to dismantle the perception of holistic as a faddy, out-there term and rather encourage mind-body health as a real concept which has medical validity and empowers people to take responsibility for their health.”

Murphy opened the Nadi Wellness Centre and yoga studio on Stanley Street back in 2011.

She met Health Connect NZ owner Michelle Moynes 18 months ago and the two found they shared a vision to extend the scope of health care beyond the traditional medical model.

“We want to create a wider more cohesive spectrum of primary health care that incorporates lifestyle factors, injury recovery and prevention, and takes account of each individual’s specific needs and
requirements,” Murphy says.

Health Connect NZ will bring together a range of health professionals on-site.

Yoga Nadi’s second yoga studio will offer up to seven classes per day from early morning into the late evening, suitable for all abilities.

All yoga classes in the first week of November are free.

An open day will be held this Saturday, Halloween, with 15-minute yoga tasters on the hour from 10am-4pm.
