Magdarie’s classes focus on combining energetic flows and restorative practices while getting safely into the asanas. The key elements in her classes are strong movements, proper alignment and individual adjustment. Whilst her classes are mainly Vinyasa based, she does enjoy toning it down at times with a Yin session or two.
Loving cycling and surfing, Magdarie enjoys how perfectly yoga compliments any other activity. By doing yoga she has seen how her strength, endurance and flexibility has improved in those areas as well. Yoga also serves as the perfect remedy to release tight and rigid muscles after a strenuous training session.
Still working full-time in a corporate career, yoga has taught her a lot about balance and managing the stresses of our modern day life. It is through yoga, that Magdarie has learned to honour the quiet moments and regain strength and sanity in the stillness that is so rare to find in our busy schedules.
“What I enjoy most about teaching yoga, is having the potential to make someone’s day better by introducing students to the tools to become quieter, calmer and more mindful.”
Practicing yoga since the beginning of 2010, Magdarie began her formal Satyananda yoga training in 2014 with Charene Swartzberg from Yoga Connection in Pretoria. In 2015, she completed her RYT 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training under the guidance of Diego Baldi from Inner Wellness in Durban. She continues to enrich her own practice by attending workshops and furthering her studies in the philosophy of yoga.
