Lani Puriri

Your Sophrologist & Aromatherapist

About Me

Ten years ago, I retired from my corporate career and moved to the other side of the world - from the US to New Zealand.

After a few years, I realised early retirement wasn’t realistic. And a few years after that, I endured tragic loss (mentioned on the home page).

This changed me down to my core.

Now, I'm a Sophrologist.

I study all things within and surrounding the body so I can bring harmony to myself and help others do the same.

When I’m not working with clients I’m enjoying life with my family, and most importantly, my seven grandchildren. Oh what joy!

About Sophrology

The Study Of Conscious Harmony

Conscious harmony is understanding the systems in your body through cell appreciation and self-discovery.

Sophrology was created by Prof. Alfonso Caycedo, a neuro-psychiatrist who studied medicine in Spain after the Civil War.


Alfonso was searching for a way to bring traumatised war victims back to a healthy state (physically and mentally) with minimal use of medication. 

He worked with many doctors in Switzerland and travelled to the East studying Yoga, Zen, and Buddhism searching for core practices and exercises.

Now, Sophrology is widely practiced across all of Europe. From schools to hospitals. Everyday people, to Olympic athletes and CEOs.

In Switzerland Sophrology has been proven to help people reduce intake of medication by 30% and is reimbursed by the Swiss National Insurance programmes.

Each exercise combines breathing techniques, gentle movement, and creative visualisation. This is called a dynamic practice.

Sophrology focuses on the inner resources in oneself rather than the problem, empowering you to move forward, feel stronger, and improve your relationship with your body.
