Beginners yoga. Vinyasa. Yin yoga. Prenatal yoga. Meditation

My journey started before I became a yoga teacher. I worked and ran my own business as a beauty therapist and trained in fitness and nutrition. The yogic philosophy has been a part of my life from an early age. After suffering from a serious illness 15 years ago the only way to heal myself was to go back to the yogic teachings and practice. Together with the practice of conscience breathing, meditation and gentle yoga postures I found myself becoming stronger both mentally and physically. In time I healed myself completely. I then completed my two year teacher training in accordance to the teachings of Swami Satyananda Bihar School of Yoga. I instructed at various yoga studios and gyms before I opened Yoga Harmony. The unity of Breath, Asanasa, and Awareness practiced in yoga has a profound effect on the body and mind. This is when healing begins and change starts to happen within the body, the self and the magic of yoga takes place.

Carma ( VINYASA STRENGTH HATHA )

Vinyasa Hatha I started practicing Yoga after completing my law degree in an attempt to still my buzzing brain, and I was amazed by the immediate benefits. The “obsession” took over and, on a whim, I completed my 200-hour teacher training with EonYoga in 2017. Yoga makes you strong, mentally and physically. My aim is to instill strength in body and mind in students through their practice.

GRANT (MEDITATION HATHA YOGA VINYASA)

I have been an avid meditator for years. I can sincerely inform you that meditation offers tremendous benefits to your physical, mental and spiritual health. I can offer you simple meditation that is accessible to all. The meditation I offer is breath-based, and therefore requires no belief in anything or rejection of anything or adherence to any dogma. If you’re breathing, you can be meditating. I invite you to allow me to guide through this wonderful, natural, and gentle process now. I so often hear people say “I can’t meditate, my mind is too busy”, firstly this is not true and secondly, it is extremely ironic, because people with busy minds are the people who stand to gain the MOST from meditation.

IF YOU CAN BREATHE, YOU CAN MEDITATE

Grant has studied extensively in India he is a 200hr yoga teacher and meditation practitioner. 

Carli

B.Sc. Physiotherapy (UFS) 2012
OMT 1 2016 (orthopedic manipulative therapy)
200h YTT with Eon Yoga in Pretoria 2017
300h YTT with Himalaya Yoga Valley in Goa 2019

I loved yoga from the first time I set foot on a mat in 2008. My fascination with anatomy and biomechanics on and off the mat inspired me to pursue a career as a physiotherapist. I firmly believe that the more people practice yoga regularly, the fewer patients will need physiotherapy. “Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” – B.K.S. Iyengar. I look forward to guide you on your own yoga journey. I teach what I enjoy practising, to strengthen from the outside in with beautiful alignment along the way.

 

Anja

My yoga journey starter in 2011, since then I have practiced yoga on and off in conjunction with other sports. Two years ago I realized that it had a significant impact on me, both physically and mentally and wanted to learn more. I finished my 200hr-RYT Certificate through EonYoga in 2017 and my journey has led me to teach different styles and tailor my classes to the attendees. I love practicing a variety of styles, but find myself mostly drawn to Vinyasa Flow classes.

 

Tracy Lee Goldstone

I practise yoga because I love the way it makes me feel. As a dancer, I have always been hard on my body. Yoga allows me to be kind to myself. 
Teaching yoga has given me the beautiful opportunity to share the magic of yoga with others. I completed my 200-hour teacher training with EonYoga. My favourite yoga pose: any pose with a Smile!

 

Cornelia King

(Bikram, Ashtanga (primary series) Vinyasa and Yin yoga)
After many years of attending yoga classes, and having an inquisitive mind with an interest in philosophy, I decided to enrol for a yoga teacher’s training course to deepen my understanding and practice. I completed my comprehensive 200-hour RYS (Bikram, Ashtanga (primary series) and Vinyasa) and subsequently a 50-hour Yin YTT. 
My interest lies mainly in alignment and precision, and a meditative, transformational and yin practice. In 2019 I completed a 100-hour TT course (accredited by YACEP) in India in all aspects of Meditation. Meditation is a specific way of learning how to understand your various levels by giving attention to body, breath and the mind. In meditation you rest the mind and attain a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state.  Meditation will help you achieve a state of inner concentration, calmness, serenity, inner stillness and focus.
For me the balance and harmony obtained through yoga practice (perfect alignment of body, mind and self) is important.

 

 

Freda

yoga pretoria

I’m a 200YTT Baptiste Power Vinyasa yoga teacher - I finished my training at the House of Yoga in London towards the end of 2016 and started teaching a week later. Yoga started off as a purely physical practice and evolved to something way bigger. I found that if I stayed aware in my practice, I became more aware of my natural reactions. You can learn so much about yourself on your mat that could help you with handling situations of your mat. I did not only learn to control my body, but my mind and emotions as well.
I've never really felt passionate about anything other than my relationships with people. I studied business, worked in corporate and always felt unfulfilled until I did my yoga teacher training course. As a result, I can now envision a future that excites me - I love teaching a powerful flow and am crazy for inversions, and hope to always teach with this passion I feel for yoga

Yoga has been part of my life for almost 15 years. It got me through painful injuries after years as a gymnast and dancer. Now it gets me through life. After years of ‘not feeling ready’ I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training under Eon Swiegers (E-RYT 500) in 2016. It was the best decision ever. I do not do mediocrity, neither did my teacher. I learnt many valuable lessons, amongst them; that I am a good teacher, but that I will never stop learning. I talk a lot. I laugh a lot. I don’t give up. I’m a kid trapped in an adult’s body. I like music, art and oddness. I am precious about my yoga mat.

MY YOGA STYLE • Yoga Practice. Not Yoga perfect.

Alignment, safety in postures, and breath connection are my main areas of focus. I offer a variety of Hatha Yoga based on the teachings of BKS Iyengar with strong focus on breath and alignment throughout. My personality lends towards stronger Vinyasa sessions. Most classes are inspired and planned according to a theme e.g. flow, playing with tempo in movement, salutations, backbends, core strength, fascia release or relaxation. I am most comfortable teaching Vinyasa sequences, some Ashtanga postures and indulge in a Yin session every so often. But again: Breath! It is particularly important and pranayama has centre stage in every class I teach.

Christa Davidson

I attended my first yoga class in 2008 and I have never stopped since then. It was like coming home. In yoga I found stillness and balance, and over time, my life was completely transformed. As my love and passion for yoga grew, I realised that I needed to share the wonder of it with others so that they too could experience inner peace and freedom whilst strengthening their bodies and improving their health.

 

So, in 2015, after spending some time in the Sivananda Ashram in the South of India, I completed a 500hr teachers training course in Integral Hatha Yoga with my teacher, Willie Cloete. Integral Yoga is a synthesis of the various branches of yoga and aims to develop every aspect of the individual. It includes practices such as: Hatha Yoga (physical postures, breathing and relaxation techniques); Jana Yoga (knowledge or self-enquiry); Karma Yoga (selfless service); Bhakti Yoga (the yoga of devotion) and Raja Yoga (the science of physical and mental control).

To uphold the tradition of my very respected lineage of yoga teachers, drawing back to Swami Sivananda from Rishikesh, I hope to offer students something more than just a physical experience. I often include meditations, chanting, visualisations, and breathing techniques (pranayama) in my classes and always end with long, deep relaxations. I add some flow elements to the asana (physical) practice because of my lifelong connection and love for dance and movement. I have been teaching for 2 years, continuously sowing seeds for change and upliftment. My aim is to help all students to reach their full potential, so they can enjoy lives of good health, abundance and harmony.
 

Elsa 

I have been interested in yoga since I was a child and have regularly practiced yoga for the past 15 years. For me yoga is an essential part of being vibrantly healthy and well. Yoga works on all the body systems as well as on an energy level, keeping the body and mind supple and youthful. I especially love the meditative aspect of yoga. I have completed my 200 hour teacher training in 2015 in Hatha yoga.

 

Nicole

‘I came to yoga to connect with a friend, and stayed because of the connection it gave me first to my body, then breath, then mind. I started my teacher training at Unraveled Yoga in Cape Town in 2018 as a way to deepen my practice and build community when I moved to LA later that year. Teacher training helped open me up to connections with the universe, and now community through teaching. I delight in the dynamism and stillness that every practice brings, and seek to incorporate both elements into my classes.'

SABRINA

From a young age I fell in love with the yoga lifestyle. Yoga has continued to help me find inner peace, self acceptance and love. I completed my 200-hour RYT – registered teacher training in 2016 in multiple yoga styles. Drink water, do yoga, be happy. Namaste.
