My wonderful parents must have been amongst the first people to attend yoga classes in Welkom when I was a schoolgirl in the 1960s and early 1970s. It was my mom who instilled in me a love of the practice. Once I had completed my studies at Rhodes University I started to attend formal yoga classes under Betty Flax in East London in 1978 and have been practising yoga ever since. After qualifying as a yoga teacher at the Ananda Kutir Yoga Ashram in Rondebosch East in 1995, I taught Hatha Yoga in Fish Hoek in the Scenic South Peninsula until March 2014. My yoga experience has been broadened over the years by a number of inspiring yoga teachers with whom I have taken classes or whose workshops I have attended – yoga of all styles except for Kundalini and Bikram yoga.


We moved to Stanford in April 2014 where I am privileged to have a  warm sunny studio at our home.


I am also the owner  of the Scenic South community website, the online information hub for the communities of the South Peninsula south of Lakeside and Stanford and the Overberg region.
