Yoga and Ayurveda


30 Years

What to expect with Me

My workshops bring together many different aspects of Ayurveda, including bodywork, breathwork, yoga asana, food choices, cooking ideas and daily lifestyle practices. I will share this ancient wisdom and explain theoretically and practically how it can be implemented in this day and age.


Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing system, developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. The Sanskrit word Ayurveda means knowledge of life and its focus is to live in harmony with nature's rhythms. Perfect health is defined as a state of balance between mind, body, spirit, and social well-being.

​I teach the theory behind Ayurveda as well as its practice through therapeutic Ayurvedic yoga classes, breathwork, self-massage and oiling techniques. My courses include a digital copy of the relevant notes and recipes. I also offer personal one-on-one assessments as additional tool by prior booking.

Who am I

I am a mature woman who has been passionate about health and natural food for over 35 years using plants as my balancer. I live on a farm in the Eastern Cape and run edible gardening workshops, yoga classes (live and online) as well as yogic and Ayurvedic retreats. I previously taught Pilates for 20 years and upskilled to hatha yoga teaching 10 years ago by training in Vakala, Kerala.


I have lived an Ayurvedic lifestyle using food, herbs and nature as medicine for over 25 years. I studied with Laura Plumb at the Yoga Veda institute and with Dr Vinod in Rishikesh, India, as an Ayurvedic counsellor and therapeutic Ayurvedic yoga practitioner. I am a recipe developer and gastronomic gardener and offer both Ayurvedic and plant- based cookery workshops. I also conduct Ayurvedic consultations to support each individual’s health journey. I continue to study Ayurveda both online and via consulting with my fellow students and will return to India in 2025.

​Yoga for me is a way of life, incorporating physical bodywork, breathwork, the mindset, discipline and the spirit. It is an integration of the whole and continuous exploration of self.
