It's yoga with spice. It's yoga with flavour. It's yoga with Coriander (but you can call her Randi for short!)
Please note Jess is no longer taking bookings for this work
Coriander (Randi for short) tried to be a 21st century modern yoga teacher, however the Universe was calling her and the spice suddenly took over.
Coriander can be performed as a roving character, a short set, for specialist events (birthday parties, team bonding etc) or as an hour indoor show.
Coriander has performed as a roving character all around New Zealand and internationally, bringing smiles and laughter to people on the streets or at festivals. She is able to set up a "station" and encourage passersby to participate in a short, fun and interactive yoga(ish) class or can rove around the street/festival engaging with passersby and taking the infamous "yoga selfie."

"refreshingly down to earth... an original show full of belly laughs"
Coriander (you can call her Randi for short!) invites you to join her for an hour of spiritual enlightenment and a journey like no other with her very special yoga(ish) show.
Coriander has been found guiding students through their Randi yoga(ish) practises at The Dunedin Fringe Festival, The Old 505 Theatre (Sydney Fringe Festival), The Common Room (Fringe in the Stings), BATS Theatre (Wellington), The World Buskers Festival (Christchurch), and CupaDupa (Wellington) - with the spiritual highlight being Venice Beach (Los Angeles). She knows her heart chakra from her third eye and her favourite yoga(ish) pose would have to be the cat and cow sequence, “but you, like, really have to connect with the animals by mooing and meowing…”
All levels welcome, in fact, the less you know about yoga the better!
