The YogiFish Toe-Dipper

Then the Toe Dipper is for you! Come to Leigh, 1 hour north of Auckland, and join in this fun, safe intro to yoga and ocean swimming specifically for nervous swimmers and yogis who are curious to stretch themselves.

The Toe Dipper session goes like this.


  • Start with a chat to get to know you
  • Flow into a 60-minute beginners’ yoga class focusing on breathwork (great for swimming), shoulder mobility (ditto), flexibility, easy sun salutations and balance.
  • Head to a local safe beach (depending on wind/weather/swell), where we’ll start out in the shallows and swim parallel to the shore… then let’s see where the current takes us… possibly back to the safety of the beach… or maybe, just maybe, you’ll allow me to coax you a little out of your depth! (Please note that, while we will share swimming tips, you should already know how to freestyle. Snail pace is fine.)
  • Back to the beach to change and share your experiences over morning tea.

What's Included

Yoga class with all gear (mat, bolster, block, blanket)

Tow float hire. (If you get hooked you can buy these on the day for $50)

Swim as a pod in the big blue Pacific with loads of tips and support

Morning tea (GF)

What to Bring

Comfy stretchy clothes suitable for yoga, swim gear, cap (recommended to keep water out of your ears. I have YogiFish caps), goggles or even a snorkel, mask & fins if you prefer.

A wetsuit or a shortie if you have one (but not essential). Change of warm clothes.

Also, please BYO mug for morning tea (for hygiene reasons)

Cost: $45
