We really enjoy working alongside community initiatives that benefit the body, mind and soul of local people; as well as sharing yoga, meditation and wellness with people far and wide. Read on to meet some of our partners who share these common goals.
For those of you who have joined us for a Golden Yogi class or event, you will know how much importance we place on sharing amazing music. We especially love sharing the music of Kamari & Manvir - the founders and musical talents behind Akashik Recordings - whose upbeat music can be found accompanying some of our event highlights. To enjoy their complete collection visit: soundcloud.com/akashikrecordings or akashikrecordings.com
GO GREEN EXPO
As well as 'living lightly', our Golden Yogi team love to 'tread lightly' on the planet too. Sharing a passion for organics, wholefoods, healthy lifestyle choices, recycling, rain water harvesting, solar and eco-friendly technological initiatives - it's no surprise that we are massive supporters of Damien and the team at Go Green. So if you're keen to learn more about how you can tread lightly on the planet, head along to the Auckland expo on April 18th & 19th 2015 ... you'll find us there smiling and learning what's new too.
LIVE MORE AWESOME
If you're yet to meet the Live More Awesome crew, then you are in for a treat. Passionate about sharing all things fun, upbeat and positive to help conquer depression and anxiety around the globe - these guys are in a word AWESOME! Their vision is to be recognised and acknowledged globally: as the organisation that tackles depression differently and positively with simple, effective and awesome initiatives/events to increase mental wellness. We love their style - so keep an eye on our Community Fun page as we hatch some plans to share yoga smiles and wellness, to ensure that we all live more awesome. Yeaaaah!
Many of our teachers are ambassadors, or exclusive ambassador alumni, for lululemon athletica. We all love nothing more than going along to enjoy teaching, or participating, in a class or event at the Takapuna, Ponsonby and Britomart stores. This does however test our self control, as we all drool over the racks of stylish and comfortable street and yoga wear ~ ah, bliss. Check out lululemon athletica if you are in need of some amazing new yoga or run gear.
With great excitement we announce that: you can now give the gift of yoga, without worrying if the person receiving it is ready for it. The beauty of Miny&Mo is that every designer gift box provides the recipient with 10 gift experience options - of which yoga at Golden Yogi studio might be one of them - they can then eeny, meeny, miny mo as to which experience they choose. Phew, pressure is off people - this is experience gift giving at it's best.

Golden Yogi were over the moon to be invited to teach Kundalini Yoga and Meditation at Auckland's first ever Wanderlust Festival Downunder. It was a truly magical day, bringing together people from all walks of life to share yoga, meditation and healthy lifestyles. International teachers and local teachers came together to share many different styles of yoga in the summer sunshine. We eagerly await the first 4-day Wanderlust Event, to be held at Great Lake Taupo : Jan 29th - Feb 1st 2015. Keep an eye on our Community Fun page for more details as the festival planning unfolds.
