Hey curious one! Welcome to Rise Yoga with Sarah Hon, Adele Kinghan, and Mari-Halina Colbert. We are your guides on the journey of awakening that is waiting for you to step into.


We believe that the greatest need of our time is to change our relationships with ourselves, with others, and with the environment.

This comes through embodiment.

Embodiment is the moment-to-moment process of living and directly perceiving in your very cells, the enlivened experience of your inherent wholeness.

Embodiment clarifies the intelligence of the mind-body connection and reveals your innate capacity to grant a full body and wholehearted YES to the many enriching flavors and textures of life.

Through embodiment, we'll guide you toward uncovering the fullness of your power.

Through embodiment, we'll create space for greater opportunities to come about within your life, and for you to have the courage to step up and meet them.

Through embodiment, we'll reclaim all the parts of ourselves we've lost, denied, and muted - to stand true and strong in who we really are.

“be softer with you.
you are a breathing thing.
a memory to someone.
a home to a life.”

— Nayyirah Waheed

So you're ready to Rise, and infuse yoga into how you live your life?

You've come to the right place.

Join one of our 100 hour yoga study immersions and you will:

  • dive deep into the Tantric philosophy of Waking Up - a practical toolkit designed by ancient yogis to yogify your whole life, from the inside out
  • learn techniques of mantra (japa and contemplation), nada yoga (sound), kriya (cleansing), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation that will super charge your asana practice (yoga poses)
  • explore the anatomy of embodiment - a deep felt understanding within your own body to move and live with more freedom and ease
  • take all of this into an incredible 4hr daily sadhana (devotional practice) that we explore every morning together
  • transition back into your life with your own consistent and self-nourishing yoga practice
  • develop a greater understanding of the technology of liberation in the human form, supported by embodiment of what deep aliveness and fulfilment really means for you.

If you're considering teaching yoga, by the end of our 100hr immersion you will know what the right next step is for you. If you decide to teach, you can go on to do a  Rise Yoga 100hr Teacher Training which, combined with your 100hr immersion, gives you the required 200hr teaching certification. 










"I had only taken a handful of yoga classes and typically at a gym as a supplement to working out. RISE Yoga was incredible. I loved how each class was unique and taught me something new about my mind, body and soul. The content was so motivational and always provided at least one inspirational idea I took away from class. I have a newfound love with yoga and am searching for a studio at home. I’m afraid RISE Yoga has ruined me forever finding anything to compare to their sessions."

Lisa Conroy, NZ

“This whole experience and the two trainings so far have changed things in my life I didn’t even expect, and have given me a freedom and gratitude with just the yoga of life that I am immensely grateful and humbled by. I thank you from my heart and soul – it’s not just what you teach, it’s your presence, your personal experience, your firmness, your softness, your love. So I really hope you know, hear and feel the impact that your soul work has."


“The immersion and teacher training was life changing. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself. The material was much more vast than I expected, broadening my mind and deepening my understanding of yoga beyond the asanas. Adele and Sarah are truly gifted, world-class facilitators. They offer an incredible amount of wisdom – I’m in awe of their ability to embody the teachings and offer them in such an inspiring, relatable way.”


“Some of the most valuable time I have spent, ever, doing anything! Adele and Sarah are wonderful teachers. They bring a huge amount of knowledge with them. But it's not only their knowledge that is invaluable, it's also their ability to be very present, very humble and very real. The course is more than just yoga teacher training, it is also a practical 'life school' that will give you the tools on and off the mat to navigate this thing called life. I can’t recommend this training enough."


"It’s amazing. I love every minute of it. I find myself hanging off their every word mesmerised by their abundance of knowledge and passion for Yoga. The environment is so supportive and I always feel completely safe to express my ideas and feelings. I have felt my true self really start to come to the surface since beginning the training and my understanding of Yoga has moved so much further off the mat and into my every day. I started thinking I would just do the first stream and now I have such a hunger for more I can’t wait to do the second stream."


“Adele and Sarah’s devotion to teaching yoga has been so inspirational that I now only want to teach others the way they did for us – holding the space. You are my soul teachers! Like a candle, you devote yourselves to teaching us from your heart and as a candle burns itself, it provides light to let us shine.”


"I unravelled layer after layer of limiting beliefs about myself, my asana practice, and about what it means to be a yogi. I loved that we dove deep into philosophy, asana and embodiment practices, but because the content was spread out over a few months there was time to really integrate the information before learning more. The wealth of knowledge and experience that Adele and Sarah shared with us was beyond what I ever could have expected, and I am SO glad that I waited for this particular teacher training. One of the unexpected highlights has been the incredible friendships I've formed with this group over the last year or so. We've all become so connected and continue to support each other even now, months after completing the teacher training."


"Adele’s knowledge and passion not only about yoga but life in general is pretty phenomenal. She has a beautiful ability to help you learn through creating an environment for personal experience and holding you in that space. I learnt so much more than how to become a yoga instructor. I developed myself throughout the 6 months, built some great friendships and learnt some lessons that will stay with me for a life time. I highly recommend RISE Yoga to anyone who wants to transform, develop, grow and learn as well as anyone who wants to know what it really takes to become a high class yoga instructor."


"Learning with Adele and Sarah was the best thing I'd ever done for myself. They absolutely blow my socks off with the depth and breadth of their knowledge and beautiful nature to share their craft in an easy to understand, insightful way."


“Not only did I experience a shift in my appreciation for and approach to yoga, but also in my everyday embodiment and sense of self. It’s impossible to enter the RISE Yoga courses with an open mind and leave unmoved. This work has the potential to change your life if you let it.”

Perri Palmieri

“Adele and Sarah are two of the most honest, sincere, and knowledgeable teachers I have found on this yoga path. Adele has lived and survived advanced stage bowel cancer, her journey and her depth, both of spirit and knowledge, is humbling. After a steady practice with Adele, I noticed I was moving very differently. I was finding courage to go places perhaps a little more challenging, each day the improvement arrived little by little. My breathing became clearer, my balance more stable, my mind sharper, my body less rigid. Off the mat this translated into being a little more courageous too. Every “I can’t” became “maybe” and “I’ll give it a go”.
My next adventure was another Rise Yoga immersion in Bali. There on this alive pulsating land we went deeper, beyond just the physical layers of self. Much deeper - hitting layers of subconscious emotion. There I was able to fully receive and grieve my loved ones that are no longer, in a way that was beautiful and profound. I could truly see for the first time my holding patterns and ways of being that no longer served me. I was able to fully experience my heart without the layers that had shrouded me over this life;me. I was surrounded by loving beings so full of integrity and wisdom on this journey, this path seems to draw extraordinary souls. Joy became so accessible to me for no other reason than to simply feel it, to be it. Yes, we can be joy!”


“I've had the good fortune of training with Sarah, Adele and Mari, and of navigating alongside them as friends and practitioners. I genuinely cannot recommend the space they curate highly enough. Their dedication to the heart and soul of yoga - practiced in daily life in a grounded, useful way - is a constant inspiration. They weave new and old teaching and science together with grace and skill, and each time we interact I come away with a deeper understanding of my self, my world and my place in it.”


“The immersion and YTT have been an experience that is hard to sum up in words. One I am so incredibly humbled to have had, literally life changing. I will be forever grateful to these ladies, Sarah, Mari and Adele. They have an ability to teach and share the philosophy and tradition of yoga in a way that is relevant and accessible for everyday life. Really acknowledging the modern human experience and our individual and collective journeys. Deep, thought provoking content, a richness so embodied by Sarah, Mari and Adele. Sarah's capacity and ability to create and hold a safe space for self exploration allows for transformative realisations and processing to unfold. Learning about the anatomy of the human body through the embodied teachings and practices that Mari constructs was revolutionary. I felt held, seen and safe with the foundation of deep connection to this land, Tangata Whenua and the facilitation by these incredible wahine.”


“The Rise Immersion was an experience that lifted the heavy lids of my eyes to a brighter, more awake, and more engaged expression of myself in the world. It's led me into a more curious, compassionate, and radiant connection to both my practice and my life. I found a whole new relationship to my own body through Adele, Sarah, and Mari's teachings and wisdom. The NST (non-dual Shiva tantra) philosophies and teachings were shared in an easily digestible and relatable way by Sarah, who then brought them into the body, and related them to life off the mat in the most beautiful of ways, and unlocked a whole new realm of expression, freedom and feeling through embodied movement and stillness. Mari expanded my container of movement possibility, mobility, and strength in the body through her divine practices; and held the kula in so much loving, gentle, and compassionate support. This experience opened my fearful heart into feeling, in the safety and support provided by a whole new kula of kindred souls - I walked forwards with deep new friendships and life-long connections.”
