Brooke Neal is a former New Zealand hockey player, recently retiring from the game after playing 176 games for the Black Sticks since her debut in 2014. She competed at the 2016 Olympic Games, and more recently, she won Gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2018. Brooke is also a mentor to high school athletes, running an initiative called ‘All About Balance’ which gives young female athletes support and practical tools for their mental well-being, in a competitive environment.
Brooke is also a qualified yoga teacher. She has always been drawn to Yin style yoga, although she sees the benefit in all styles. She finds that the contrast between her hectic life and the calmness in a yoga class brings balance in her life.
Her classes are all about connecting your mind to body, so that you leave feeling refreshed, grounded, and empowered. They are designed for anybody, and that means any body! No experience needed.
