Yoga in Woodstock,Cape TownVanessa

I was born and raised in Munich, Germany by a German mother and an Italian father. After finishing my studies I worked for eight years in the fashion industry. Although I had a good and safe job with a satistfying income I felt that I needed something different. During those eight years in a tough business with a lot of pressure, responsibility and stress my yoga pratice always helped me to keep calm, relaxed and grounded in this quite superficial industry. Yoga became my sanctuary and my biggest passion until finally in 2009 I decided it is time to follow my heart and listen to the inner voice that had been talking to me already for a long time. I quit my job, became a yoga teacher and moved to Cape Town. Since then I have been teaching yoga at several different places in Cape Town.

I teach Sivananda Integral Hatha Yoga focusing not only on Asanas (postures) but also on Pranayama (breathing). In my classes I strive to take you into a calm and meditative state where you can just be yourself without judgement or attachment and allow the postures to unfold their benefits on a very deep level.

Besides teaching yoga I am a birth Doula (emotional labour support), I do Soul connection work (unborn child work) and I am a Massage Therapist using Thai Yoga Massage as well as Shiatsu Head-Neck-Shoulder massage.
