Whatever the time of year, this may be the perfect time to start a new, or deepen an existing, yoga practice.
Lower your stress levels, increase your flexibility, tone and strengthen your body, improve your circulation and breathing, lose weight, and find the peace of mind that yoga can give through providing a positive outlet to quiet the mind and allow us to reconnect mind and body.
Please contact me for information on class times and fees.
I teach Hatha Yoga in the Integral Vinyasa style, in a beautiful private studio in the historic centre of Stellenbosch.
This is a gentle style of yoga with a lot of emphasis on warming up the body thoroughly before and throughout the practice, so the risk of injury is minimal. Whilst you enjoy all the benefits of a wonderful physical workout, the emphasis is on mindfulness and constantly bringing the awareness back to the breath: the focus of the practice is to bring mind, body and spirit into a state of balance and harmony. Every class ends with a period of relaxation, which is one of the most important elements of the class.
Beginners are welcome. All levels of yoga are taught, and I also offer pre-natal (pregnancy yoga) classes, having completed my specialised PTT course in 2011. I am also an IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) Certified Infant Massage Instructor and offer regular courses designed to teach primary caregivers how to massage their babies.
In September 2012, Derryn Searle joined me at the studio. Derryn is a beautifully positive person whose smile lights up every room she walks into. Some of her passions are yoga, music and teaching, and she particularly shines when the three are combined in her yoga class. Derryn trained at Yoga Life in Cape Town and offers a wonderfully energising Vinyasa flow style that will get you moving and get a spring into your step, strengthening the body while calming the mind.
With Derryn also teaching at Yoga With Nicci, this means is that there are more classes on offer, and you can choose between two different instructors/styles. Try us both out to see what resonates better with you! Or just pick and choose, depending on your schedule.
There is ample, free parking and a separate, private changing area.
