Kerry’s yoga took her from New York to East Timor, to India, Peru, Sri Lanka and South Africa where she taught and studied internationally. Kerry has studied with the International Yoga Vedanta Center in their first and advanced trainings in India and France.
In South Africa, since 2002, Kerry Weavind opened a yoga studio in Fourways and in 2011 opened a second yoga studio, between both offering 4 classes a day to yoga enthusiasts who look for the ‘more than exercise’ benefits of yoga which include focus and concentration, balancing of the central nervous system, reducing stress, and calming the mind. In the 13 years of her Joburg career she has trained more than 100 teachers, brought a handful of international Yoga teachers to South Africa, and has put yoga on the map in Johannesburg as a household word, through articles and television exposure in mainstream media. She has been on Top Billing, Free Spirit among others, and has represented the power of yoga in most leading magazines as well as written articles for Odyssey magazine and Complete Yoga magazine.
Kerry’s passion for yoga lies in the benefits that far exceed physical strengthening and toning. Yoga gives you everything most other exercise will give you but in a non-violent way and has the added benefit of building bone density, balancing hormones (and moods!) and organs which improves whole body vitality. Yoga is a lifestyle which is attractive to Kerry, a resetting every day to a positive and open outlook.
