Our unique wellness studio, tucked away in an almost secret garden beyond the brown gates is a wonderful place where you can be you, and discover your good news. Surrounded by trees, birds and a view of the Port Hills, this old mechanics workshop has been transformed into a warm and inviting blank canvas.
The studio is the dream of Riwai and Cate Grace (categrace.com). Cate is a personal trainer and wellness coach whom following the Christchurch Earthquakes in 2011 found herself without her own premises to operate from. Thanks to the generosity of colleagues around the city in the five years following she has worked from nine different premises, client homes, parks, playgrounds and even one of the local racecourses. Through much adversity she held on to her dream of one day opening her dream studio.
After purchasing a new home in November 2014, her husband Riwai suggested that that they convert the old garage into a studio. It was a dark run down space with grey brick interior, broken windows, graffiti and old concrete floor. Not many could see the vision. After four months of hard work, and over 50 tradesmen, their dream caame to life and the studio opened on 16 March 2016.
