Everyone is encouraged to approach each class with a beginners mind so the journey in and out of Downward Dog can be new each time you take your body there.

Everyone wants to be happy, it’s that simple. Yoga is about realising your inherent happiness. It exists in each and every one of us and the path of Yoga provides us with a very practical means to awaken this joy, that is our natural state of being.
The Living Yoga studio is more than just a space; it is a sacred space where students immerse themselves completely in yoga. We encourage our students to take their practice off the mat and into the world we all share. Established by Cherryl Duncan in 2006, the studio and the community that has sprung up around it has continued to grow under Sarah Bentz, a certified Jivamukti teacher and the current owner and director of Living Yoga in Craighall. Sarah is supported by an incredible group of like-minded teachers all meeting the highest teaching standards and inspiring a path to yoga through compassion for all beings.
Jivamukti is a world-renowned method of yoga created by Sharon Gannon and David Life. Read more (www.jivamuktiyoga.com)

Meraki means to do something with soul, creativity, and love; to put something of yourself into your work.
Meraki Yoga Studio was established by Caitlyn McKenzie in 2017. The studio was originally situated in Somerset West in the Western Cape before opening its doors to the Lowveld in March 2018.
Meraki Yoga Studio was created to offer people a safe space where they can practice yoga. The studio has remained small to offer quality over quantity classes, where students can receive plenty of individual attention to help advance their practice in a supportive way.
“My intention when opening the studio was to help people find their inner stillness, to truly connect with themselves and to take their practice off the mat and into their everyday life. Above all else, yoga has taught me to be kind, it has led me to a life filled with an incredible and uplifting community, and that has been the foundations upon which Meraki Yoga Studio was built.”
Mindfulness is about paying extraordinary attention to the ordinary. It is about using all of our senses to live moment-to-moment with awareness. We may find that we are habitually lost in thought. Worrying about the past or the future. Or simply just stuck in our heads. This results in a disconnection from our immediate environment, our bodies and our feelings. The mindfulness practice is a simple way to help us reconnect with our bodies and inner resources again. It helps us ground ourselves in the present moment.
When explaining mindfulness to children, I often use the analogy of a pause button. Most children know what a pause button is and how to use it. Mindfulness is like the pause button on life. It helps us to pause and take notice of all that is around us and inside of us. It helps us to stop, breathe and be.
