Sacha Paddy
and Neal Ghoshal

For many years we have been inspired by yoga, ecstatic dance, movement and various holistic therapies. They have become our passion and they fill our lives. It is our vision to share what we love out to our community, and further out into the world.

We sustain ourselves by offering what we have discovered on our journey towards peace and wholeness. This website is part of the vision. You will find information about the Yoga we offer, about 5Rhythms Dance classes and events, about who we are and what truly inspires us. Life is movement and our prayer is that our movement is sacred.

Sacha Paddy and Neal Ghoshal

Sacha Paddy

When Sacha discovered the 5Rhythms Dance of Gabrielle Roth in 2000, she loved the sense of freedom as well as the potential of this practice to be a guiding light through life.

Sacha has now been teaching 5Rhythms since 2008, and is a certified teacher of both 5Rhythms and Open Floor dance practices. She has also been a Holistic massage therapist for nearly 20 years.

She is endlessly inspired by the simple joy of embodiment and the depth of experience that movement and dance offers us. These practices can be such a profoundly supportive resource in our lives.

She holds a heartfelt, fun, compassionate and welcoming space in which to explore life-themes through your dance.

Neal Ghoshal

Neal has been practicing yoga for 23 years and teaching since 2003. He sees yoga as a guide to restoring our place and understanding of who we are and how we can live peacefully, happily and completely fulfilled.

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.

“My aim in teaching is to create a safe and inviting space in which to learn and discover Yoga as a balance between effort and effortlessness, structural alignment and organic fluidity, mindfulness and spontaneity.

I am interested in supporting and growing students’ skill in sensing and feeling their way in their movement, so that they learn to fully trust in and be confident of their own perception, and make independent choices in their practice and their lives.”

“Ultimately, the practice of Yoga leads us to a place where we may respond to life’s challenges with ease in our breath and body, with wise choices, and with kindness and a compassionate heart.”

He has taught on teacher training programs in Australia and New Zealand, has been senior faculty on Donna Farhi’s Advanced Teacher Training Program, and been a keynote speaker at the IYTA Conference.

He is a founder member and part of the core faculty of the Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training programme, based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Neal is also an experienced Holistic and Thai massage therapist, a musician and kirtan chant leader.
