About the instructor

Cameron Tukapua - B Ac, Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Visionary, Leader

From day one of Chinese medical training Cameron has been a passionate explorer of 'life as energy'. 

Her lifetime quest has been how to live a grounded spiritual life. Cameron created and was Director of the Christchurch College of Holistic Healing - a New Zealand government registered Acupuncture practitioner training College.  

She has written a book called Opening Up, produced a film on Aligning Head and Heart, and for nearly a decade lead spiritual self-identity retreats in rural China.

"I have seen how empowering it is for people to see their place in the Universe and gather some keys to unfolding their destiny. I have witnessed hundreds of people transform their lives by discovering language for their inner lives and practical ways to connect their inner and outer worlds”

Cameron’s vision of You Being You was originally inspired to offer easy access to the uncluttered wisdom of ancient traditions. "Returning to our natural state can be simple when you have a map for the path. YBY courses offer grounded steps and body centred practices for navigating the spiritual path. I believe many people are missing this education which is most needed for this time of powerful social transformation"

She believes Yoga is a whole way of living and thinking and can aid in finding purpose in life.

Nourishing Roots - The Power of Yin

BRIEF DESCRIPTOR Nourishing Roots is a prescription for well-being, engaging Heart, Mind, Body and Soul.
It introduces Chinese medical teachings on how the body is formed, maintained and balanced by our everyday lifestyle choices. The seven steps provide a structured learning pathway to explore how to strengthen and balance whole body and being functions.

Each chapter includes teachings with reflections to guide you to actualise your innate potentials by engaging deeper levels of energy. Each step has an associated restorative Yoga practice to activate and connect specific energetic pathways in the body. These practices calm, soothe and help reset the nervous system and introduce how to use rest to heal and rejuvenate the body energy systems. We encourage you to share the journey with someone you care about and explore self-care as the new health care. 

Thank you for joining our healing conversation. We invite you to feel good knowing that during May 2020, 50% of all YBY course sales will be donated to support the Anahata Retreat Centre, Golden Bay, New Zealand. THANK YOU

"Nourishing Roots has transformed my life and empowered me to stand in my truth. 

My self-care is my priority and my joy and passion now bubble up from within my soul. Prior to engaging the 7-step ‘Roots’ programme I was just surviving from one day to the next feeling constantly overwhelmed and unhappy. My relationship had deteriorated and I was on the verge of a divorce. 

This survival mode had sent me into depths of despair and I did not know how to help myself. Layers of past hurts and traumas were surfacing and I knew I needed help, but didn’t know how to articulate this. I also knew that the medication route was not an option for me as this would only be a temporary fix. 

I really wanted to get to the roots of my situation.The depths of the darkness was really difficult for me to accept as I was usually the positive person that made everyone laugh. That person was buried under a layer that many were quick to label ‘depression’. 

Then I found the Nourishing Roots course and it delivered on every level. The confusion lifted, the deep-seated unhappiness dissolved and the fatigue had faded within weeks.
‘Roots’ is now my map for navigating my way with clarity and purpose, an anchor to feeling grounded. Living my life with a new found enthusiasm and a new language to express myself is so liberating and by sharing my experience I hope to reach others for it is in connection that we learn and heal."

- Sam Ford, Yoga teacher and trainer
