Anneke Hogan

Anneke Hogan created the Mindfully Me Journal to encourage people to discover the many benefits of journaling. Anneke has journaled since she was 11 years old and is an advocate for journaling. Journaling is a tool available to everyone and to encourage more people into journaling she regularly facilitates workshops on the foundations of journaling along with how to create a journaling practice.

A lifelong passion for health has informed her 20+ years working as a wellness practitioner, workshop facilitator, wellness coach, and mentor. Anneke’s approach is simple, wellbeing is a skilful practice, and through guiding people to learn more about themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually they naturally develop a better understanding of their needs for self care. Awareness and mindfulness create foundational and guiding principles for personal leadership. 

Anneke brings a gentle compassionate presence that allows people to feel at ease, offering 1:1 mentoring that is highly individualised to meet people’s personal goals and desires for transformative and sustainable change. 

In 2016 an opportunity to work with Dove Hospice in Auckland arose. Anneke was asked to create a wellness program for cancer patients transitioning after completing treatments. These programs have successfully supported people to feel empowered to begin to move forward with a renewed self confidence, wellness resources and skills to manage stress and re-occurrence anxiety. 

Anneke’s training includes a Therapeutic Remedial Massage Diploma, Fascial Kinetic Bowen Therapy Bodywork, Journey Practitioner, Wellness Coaching through Wellness Coaching Australia and more recently as a Senior Enhances Awareness Mentor. 

Lynne Brown

Lynne Brown has been a natural health practitioner and educator for over 25 years, but for the last 7 years has specialised in wellness coaching. Her passion is to inspire others to live to their full potential. She and her colleague Anneke Hogan developed a unique wellness mentoring program that leads clients through their own healing and discovery process. Using the principles of awareness and mindfulness, each client becomes more aware of where they are right now, where they want to be, and what their personalised process to get there needs to be. Together we begin to put that process in place, adjusting for obstacles and blocks along the way.

Aware that you have to live what you teach, that you can’t mentor someone unless you have walked that path to healing and discovery yourself, Lynne is constantly working with (and adjusting) her own approach to work, health, relaxation and exploration. While her work is her chief passion, she loves spending time with her partner Mark, family and like minded friends, being outside and enjoying the wonderful wild country where we live, doing yoga and reading, eating and a bit more reading. 

Always learning, Lynne has a BA (Psychology), Diplomas in Education, Remedial Massage and Bowen Therapy, and a Certificate as a Wellness Coach.

Mark Hunter

Mark Hunter has been a natural health practitioner and educator for over 25 years, and a yoga teacher for over 7 years. His working day includes a mixture of teaching group yoga classes, one on one yoga, and individualised therapy sessions incorporating either yoga therapy or myofascial therapy. While he teaches  students and treats clients from all age groups, he tends to specialise in people over 50 who need more finely tuned and directed approach to help recover from injuries and chronic problems and to help restore posture, strength and flexibility. The average age of his oldest class is 80. 

Mark’s passion for health is inspired by the body’s ability to both heal and transform itself to have a better quality of life. He has always been committed to health and exercise, although a long time ago was a footballer who could barley touch his toes he soon became a convert to the health and flexibility that Yoga provides. Living in Queenstown, he loves biking, walking, yoga, water sports, and continually learning more about how the body functions.
