Kia Ora, my name is Josee Lebel. I'm a Yoga & Meditation teacher (RYTA-500 hours). I'm also a Naturopath & Herbalist and a Celebrant.

I completed my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ashram Yoga in New Zealand in 2006 and my 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ashram Yoga in 2011. My sanyasin name is Swami Manishananda Saraswati, I'm a first-generation student of Swami Shantimurti Saraswati.

In 2017 I completed both my Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Contemporary Yoga in New Zealand and I trained in Yin Yoga, Myofascial Release Therapy and Spinal Anatomy with Jo Phee in Auckland, New Zealand.

I teach at Mind Body Movement, a Yoga studio in my hometown of Whakatane, in the gorgeous Bay of Plenty in New Zealand. I teach Yoga Basics, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Meditation.

I'm passionate about the History and Philosophy that informs Yoga and I completed a Masters in Holistic Science in 2013, with Samkhya Theory as my Dissertation topic.

In 2018 I look forward to studying Yoga Nidra in more depth and also offering therapies in the area of; energy healing, aura cleansing, chakra balancing, crystal layouts and Angelic Reiki.
