Neal has been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and teaching since 2003. He sees yoga as a map guiding us home to a place of peace and relaxed openness in each moment. Neal’s teaching focuses on exploring and refining natural movement and alignment principles – learning to embody these principles in a way that takes our spiritual practice into our everyday lives.
Passionate about Restorative Yoga, Neal has been studying Richard Miller's work for almost 10 years and enrolled on the Teacher Training in 2013, becoming certified in 2017.
"I love and appreciate the wonderful intelligence and wisdom in the iRest path of meditation and for me has been a profound practice that always connects me back home, deeply to myself, and to my true nature. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to study and practice iRest and to share it among my family, colleagues and community."
Neal teaches on training programs in Australia and New Zealand, and has been part of the teaching faculty on renown teacher Donna Farhi’s Advanced Teacher Training.
Neal is also an experienced Holistic and Thai massage therapist, a rock and blues guitarist and kirtan chant leader, and loves the 5Rhythms movement practice which his partner Sacha Paddy teaches.
