Meet the teacher: Pieter Symonds

Training
I did my dance training in Wellington at the New Zealand School of Dance and my Pilates and yoga training in London. I have so much gratitude for Mark Kan and Stewart Gilchrist for helping me continue my yoga study

First memory of yoga
My father and I used to go together to an amazing local teacher when I was a teenager. At that time I was just starting full time dance training. I treated it like a ‘gymnastics/contortion’ class that could physically assist my dancing. It wasn’t until much later that I delved deeper into the layers (thank you for opening the door Patricia Okenwa). I found the quieter/meditative side allowed me to balance the stress and strain of dancing professionally.

Most inspirational teacher
I think every person I share the space/studio with is an incredible teacher. I am forever learning from my (so called) ‘students’…courage, perseverance, dedication, loyalty, humour, patience … the list goes on. A teacher is a student who teaches to continue his study (I think it was Mochizuki Minoru Sensei who said that).

What to expect in your class
Each person walks into the room with their own expectations – there isn’t a lot I can do to alter a preconception. What I hope they take away from the experience is a sense of peacefulness, enjoyment, pride and hopefully an inspiration to repeat something that might have been challenging. I hope that we’ve laughed, worked hard and ‘escaped’ the endless loop of daily life for a period.
