Yoga & Meditation Teacher
My name is Shirley MacLean and I have spent the past 30+ years within the corporate sector but finally realising this is not the vocation for me. I’ve always been interested in the health and natural therapies area where I’ve obtained a diploma and certificates in aromatherapy, massage and holistic pulsing. I’ve enjoyed road cycling, swimming and various yoga styles for personal growth over the years but nothing that I’ve stuck with until now which is “Transformational Yoga & T.I.M.E Meditation”.
I’ve recently trained in India under Swami Vidyanand a world renowned Yoga & Meditation Master. I am so excited to be able to bring my own Masters qualifications to teach here in Whangarei.
My belief is “you cannot have Yoga without Meditation or Meditation without Yoga” which is why this complete practice of “Transformational Yoga & T.I.M.E Meditation” will work just as amazingly for you as it has done for me.
I’ve gained flexibility, strength, peace, calmness, clarity of mind, improved
memory, better balance, enhanced communications with everyone around me, I have lost weight and gained an inner confidence which I have never had my whole life! I am now completely medication ‘free’ for the first time in many years can honestly say I’ve benefited more in this ‘ONE’ practice than I have with 30 years of trying numerous other therapies!
I welcome you all to come along and try this amazing modality for yourselves!
