Northern Lights Yoga was established as my freelance yoga business in May 2014 after I finished my 200h certified yoga teacher training at Yogalife in Cape Town, South Africa. Since then I have been working as a freelance yoga teacher wherever I have been based. Currently in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I teach mainly vinyasa based classes, but also yin, prenatal and power yoga.
I have been doing yoga in some or other form for the last 12 years but only truly fell in love with the practice when I discovered vinyasa yoga at “Yoga with Nicci” in February 2012 – and has from then on been a firm believer that yoga is truly for everyone – it’s just about finding the right teacher and style of yoga and anyone can get hooked:
“Yoga is about moving your body. It’s about being curious about you. To be open for who you are and to see the beauty in what you have to offer yourself. It’s not about getting every pose perfect or always moving gracefully and without fault but to learn from the journey. To discover new territory for every time you go to your mat (maybe even without your mat). It’s about daring to be you and to be happy about it. I believe with all my heart that yoga is for anyBODY. There is no recipe for a yogi you just need to dare take the first step. And along the way I want to show you what marvellous benefits there is if you can stick to this practice. And after almost 12 years of practicing yoga in I have truly seen the transformation it has had in my own, and other people lives and it is nothing but positive!”
