Q: What exactly is a conference?

A: A conference is about connection, education and collaboration. It differs from a festival in that the main focus of a conference is education of yoga professionals (although any yogi is welcome!). At a conference there are multiple sessions from multiple speakers at the same time. (We have 13 sessions from 15 presenters @ Hauora 2022). Using a combination of classes, presentations, and interactive workshops (see below for more details on what each of those terms mean) we bring together the yoga community to connect, discuss, learn, innovate and practice together.  

Q: What does the name Hauora mean?

A: Hauora is a Te-Reo word, which has multiple meanings broadly related to health, wellness and being well and in ‘good spirit’. In the context of this conference, we use it to include all the holistic wellness principles encapsulated by Yoga, as well as the unique New Zealand elements of yoga in New Zealand. 

Q: What is a ‘Class’?

A:  A class can be thought of as a ‘demonstration class’ where a particular style/concept is demonstrated by way of a class/yoga practice.

Q: What is an ‘Experiential workshop’?

A: An experiential workshop is a combination of lecture and practical application around a topic. Think interactive as well as theory.  

Q: What is a ‘Presentation’?

A: A presentation is a lecture / discussion based session, providing an opportunity to expand knowledge and awareness of contemporary approaches to yoga practice and/or teaching, and its related disciplines.

Q: Can I buy a Hauora registration and share it between me and another person(s) to attend separate sessions?

A: A conference registration is for a single person (ID required to pick up your name badge), you will also have a wristband allocated that is required along with your name badge to enter sessions.  

Q: Can I transfer my registration to another person completely?

A: Yes. The transfer fee is $50, plus any difference between the fee they would have paid, and yours (eg if you received a discount that they aren’t eligible for). Transfers are available until 1st October 2022, to activate, just email info@hauorayoga.org.nz and let us know your details and the details of the new person. 

Q: Will I earn  CPD points for attending Hauora?
