Our Vision

Our dream is to share the absolute joy that we have discovered through our own yoga practice over the years. Our studio is a space where you can restart, restore, recharge and refocus....whether you are a skilled practitioner, fitness fanatic, couch god(dess) or completely new to yoga...each class takes the individual needs of each student into consideration.

"When you practice yoga once a week, you change your mind. When you practice yoga twice a week, you change your body. When you practice yoga everyday, it will change your life"

We follow the (W)Holistic Yoga approach which is derived from various traditions and contemporary arts. This approach suggests a few basic principles to make a balanced and integrative yoga class, including meditation, intention/mantra, pranayama (breathing exercises), and asana (yoga postures). It takes into account that each body is a unique and ever-changing being, influenced by age and ability. A one-size-fits–all approach is not always in alignment with individual needs — emotions, feelings, life phases, seasonal changes, energy and hormonal changes impact the body, and therefore the mind and spirit.

Merging breath, balance, flexibility and strength, students learn self-healing techniques and find depth in their practice through body awareness and connection with postural integrity and body alignment emphasised at all times. This generates a body/brain connection ‘storing’ mindful movement in the body creating the foundation for a healthy long term and enduring relationship with the whole body.

By developing mindful awareness of the entire body — physical, emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual — the WHOLE/HOLISTIC body comes together and functions and thrives in a beautiful flow of movement and interaction — an ongoing relationship that grows and flows, creating a life of purpose and contentment in synergy with the inner and outer worlds and all the elements that constitute the universe and our beings.

Our Teachers

Sanet Fourie

My journey with yoga started more than 20 years ago. Initially, I saw it only as a way to exercise but I gradually opened up to yoga as a mental, physical and spiritual practice. Through yoga I found the means to balance my heart, mind, body and soul and it provided me with a new perspective on life and what is important to me. I try to achieve this balance in my own practice, as well as in the classes I teach.

I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Centurion Yoga Connection (endorsed by the South African Yoga Teachers’ Fellowship and International Yoga Federation) as well as a 100-hour YACEP accredited Holistic Yoga Training, focusing on therapeutic yoga.  I am registered with the South African Yoga Teachers’ Fellowship.

I teach Holistic and Yin Yoga, with a particular emphasis on creating balance and harmony in the body and mind, adjusting to the needs of my students.  I principally teach one-on-one classes, which enables me to structure classes aimed at individual student needs.

Through my initiative, TatSama, I offer intuitive guidance and energy healing, including energy alignment, tarot reading, chakra balancing, personalised crystal grids and meditation workshops.

 

Caron da Silva

My yoga journey started over 18 years ago after a serious car accident left me with  restricted movement to which I had to adapt and adjust my lifestyle. No more dancing, horse riding or kickboxing….then I discovered yoga, and fell in love. It developed into a long-term love affair and, with its many facets and aspects, yoga is my life-long adventure. As I have had to adapt so much of what I do to suit my body’s limitations in my own practice, I realised that I could share this with others who have similar limitations to make peace with their body and find joy in movement and stillness.

I did my 200 hour Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training at the Siddhi School of Yoga, Rishikesh, India. The emphasis on holistic alignment and adjustment  has added an awareness to my own practice and teaching of the importance of following the body’s unique structure and abilities. This helps to avoid injury and maximise the body’s ability to remain fluid and supple preventing the onset of age- related stiffness and immobility. Holistic, restorative and chair yoga are my favourites. I completed an additional 100 hour YACEP accredited holistic yoga training to enhance my teaching.

I have practiced kriya yoga for many years and this has been an essential element in keeping balance and awareness through many changes and challenges in my life. This is something that I incorporate into my breathing and meditation classes.
