Harare, Zimbabawe
Biography

I am a qualified Yoga Teacher born in South Africa. I recently moved to Zimbabwe to be with loved ones and to pursue my dream of teaching yoga. I absolutely love what I do. Joining others on their yoga journeys and inspiring my students through my classes is what drives me every day. I have a huge appreciation for Yoga and I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people every day, as I feel that any interaction with anyone is a gift and an experience from which I can personally learn and grow.

My classes are centered on breathing and connection to the body, mind and spirit and I use each practice as an experience for me to learn something new and to take something special from my students, as I believe that in Yoga you never stop learning and never stop growing.
