Integrating Body, Movement and Breath with a Quiet Mind
“The focus of my work now is to help people to find, for themselves, new ways to be present in the world with more ease. That’s it, simple really.”
The combination and the interplay of Bone Yoga and Bone Yoga Bodywork is taking Paul’s work to new exciting places. This exploration is deeply refreshing and offers the potential for endless creativity.
“I’m loving my work and my teaching more than ever. I’m constantly learning and I’m excited.”
In his late teens, Paul explored the world of improvised dance in workshops inspired by the work of Anna Halprin. He also delved deep into the Buddhist practice of Vipassana Meditation.
In 1985 he qualified as a 5 Element Acupuncturist, in 1992 as a Zero Balancer and as teacher in 1996.
He ran a multi-discipline practice in the UK for 15 years and immigrated to New Zealand in 2000.
After a serious illness in 2015 he committed himself to a regular daily practice of yoga. In 2016 Paul qualified as an advanced yoga teacher.
