Yoga has been a part of my life for over 20 years now and I can’t even remember what it was like without it. Like many people, it was chronic back pain that led me to my first Yoga class at the Sivananda Centre in Westcliff.

IMel-McIntyret was here that I began to explore the beauty of this ancient spiritual practice and it was here that the seed of what has turned into a lifelong practice was planted.  

Yoga helped me through 2 pregnancy’s and natural births and has given me the tools to raise 2 beautiful children. With their and my husband’s ongoing support I completed my first 200hr teacher training at Living Yoga, Greenside in October 2012. I met Chantel at Living Yoga Northcliff and in August 2013 we took over the studio from Dominique and Maitri Yoga was born.

I’ll have completed my second 200hr teacher training with Natalie Botha in February 2017. Natalie empowers her teachers with the tools to have and teach a biomechanically safe practice... “So that we can still be practicing when we’re 90!”

Yoga equips us with the tools to make sense out of the chaos that life presents us with. It gives us an opportunity and the space to just ‘Be’ in an ever demanding society. It empowers us to use our physical bodies and breath to explore the depths of our soul selves. 

I look forward to welcoming you to Maitri Yoga and guiding you on your journey into this life changing practice.
