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.

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.
