Letesha Hallett (Ngāti Tūwharetoa ) is a motivated and passionate yoga instructor with an education background. She is also a dedicated mother and wife. Through her extensive yoga instructing background she has helped many to learn the importance of self-awareness and self-management for better living, through control of movement and breath.

Yoga in Schools became a reality for Letesha mid-2015 when she decided to actively pursue her dream to bring te reo Māori, yoga and teaching children together as a unique offering to primary schools in her community.

Yoga in Schools is a series of yoga classes over a 10-week programme. Each programme offers an incorporation of te reo Māori through mindfulness movement, and it combines the four dimensions of hauora: physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. Participants will also learn about the concept of Te Whare Tapa, where through self-management during collective engagement, they are able to extend their physical and mental wellbeing.
