Liora Pine

Flourish Wellness Founder

Liora is the Founder of Flourish Wellness NZ, mother to her two fur babies Kate and Jack and when she's not in the studio you can find her working out with friends or in her design studio.

Barre is a hybrid of ballet-inspired movements, combined with the stretch elements of yoga and the core strength of pilates. Barre classes always offer level changes that offer great stability and balance for the elderly or pregnant. We want to help you strengthen your muscles, quiet your mind, and honor your health. Because we know that if you take some time to nourish your soul with nutrition, exercise, and relationships, life just gets a little easier.
