Tree of Life Yoga

 Tree of Life Yoga

Tree of Life Yoga aims to offer affordable yoga classes for everyone who has a desire to experience the many benefits of yoga, regardless of shape, size and fitness levels. All levels of experience are welcome.

The benefits of yoga occur on many levels. With regular classes, you may begin to experience increased flexibility, fitness and balance, as well as an intrinsic sense of well being.

At Tree of Life Yoga, we practise serious yoga with a sense of humour!

My journey with yoga began in 1999, and over the past 16 years I have found the practise to be one of the most portable of movement forms. Have mat - will yoga!

I have studied and practised yoga under the guidance of wonderful teachers around South Africa and various parts of the world. As a veteran of the Iyengar style of yoga, I remain inspired by Trevor Koch, the yoga teacher who first modelled advanced poses to me in classes, as well as their modifications, proving that yoga can be accessible to all levels of practitioners. I have taken this teaching approach to heart, and like to incorporate modifications to suit a variety of needs.

I'm no yoga purist, and you'll sometimes spot other movement forms I have studied, namely NIA (w. Kathy Wolstenholme), ballet (w. Joy Cooper) and kickboxing (w. Shihan Pat Carney), making their way into my yoga sequences (especially yogalates classes).

Since teaching my first yoga class in 2003, I have come to realise that true yoga can be practised anywhere, from noisy recreation centres to crowded school halls to small home studios. The setting ceases to be so important when you realise that it's within the temple of your own body that the transcendent experiences in yoga are created.

Come join in the fun!
