• Tim Seutter

    Co-Owner / Studio Manager / Yoga Instructor

    Tim was born in Canada and moved with my family to New Zealand in 2011.  He was living a great life in Canada but an adventure was calling.  While searching for this adventure, Yoga became extremely important to my life and ultimately the adventure he was seeking.

    Tim had practiced yoga a few times a week for 3 years, but after some soul-searching and some encouragement from family and friends, He decided to go to Bali and train to be a Yoga teacher. He achieved his RYT 200 certification with Yandara Yoga.  Upon his return, he developed his own unique style of yoga emphasizing breath, strength, power yet intertwining this with mindfulness and simple clarity.  Tim has taught Power Yoga, Acro Yoga, and SUP Yoga at workshops all over New Zealand and comes to the Loft as Creative Director, Yoga Teacher and the Studio Manager.
