Meet our Float Ambassadors

Our ambassadors are leaders in Wellington who embody our values at Float Well – Community, Curiosity & Evolution – and represent what floating is all about. As advocates, their role is to help spread the good word about floating within their own communities.

We are always searching for float enthusiasts, so if you are interested in joining our Ambassador Programme send us an email at info@floatwell.co.nz!

Charlotte Barber

Charlotte Barber

Meet Charlie - her mission is to inspire others to nourish their bodies from the inside out in whatever form that takes. Her loves include yoga, cooking, getting outdoors and floating (funny that!).

For Charlie, floating is an antidote to the stress and constant buzz of modern life, and she is so excited to help make it possible for others to experience this too.

Deano Shirriffs

Deano Shirriffs

Deano is a Wellington-based alchemist abstract artist, inspired by landscapes. His unorthodox methods of applying or manipulating materials and paints on the canvas create scenes exploding with colour, texture and depth.

Deano is using the float tank to create ‘float-inspired’ artwork for the Float Well space.

Hine Funaki

Hine Funaki

As a Muay Thai figher, Hine’s body and mind are constantly tested. She works full-time for Victoria University, mentoring students and is waiting for her Masters thesis to be examined. Hine also has an 8-year-old son, so she’s busy juggling parenting, working, training, a social life and anything else that comes at her!

Nerves can creep in before a fight and using the float tank pre-fight helps Hine think about details, times and processes. By planning and being prepared for every detail, she feels confident and well-prepared – she feels ready.

Mark fell for Wellington on a whirlwind film escapade early in 2012. Since then, he and his partner Sophi have produced, filmed and edited hundreds of videos for everyone from Trinity Roots to the Aro Valley 2078 Olympic Committee, from the Nudge to the Newtown Festival and everyone in-between. Mark also has a passion for astrophotography - and enjoys looking into the vastness of the universe, as well as the vast space between his ears during a float.

Tobias Hall

Tobias Hall

Tobias is a chiropractor, physical therapist, fitness instructor, NLP practitioner, chi gong practitioner, cold water immersion enthusiast and in his spare time, worships dogs.

Tobias has gradually come to the belief that although we won’t all achieve it in this lifetime, every single one of us has the inherent ability within us to live free of pain, sickness and injury. Professionally he lives for the moments when the exact right person walks into his office at exactly the right time and as a result, finds a lasting and life-changing level of pain relief that they had previously thought impossible.
