“Torotoro tinana is for everybody, no matter age, size or ethnicity. It’s a moving meditation where you dedicate time to just be with your body and that’s what the yoga practice emphasises.”
In this episode of Mānawa Maiea te Atawhai, we practice a yoga sequence in te reo Māori with Christine Russell.
Mānawa Maiea te Atawhai is a 10-part series of practical mental wellbeing tools told through a Te Ao Māori worldview with honest kōrero, humour and shared stories.
