About Santosha

I am an affiliated and accredited Yoga Teacher, but I am also a mother, have studied at university and also worked for 9 years in the public service. This has given me an understanding of the stressors and demands on students, staff and parents :-). Yoga has helped to reduce my stress levels, to facilitate a balanced body and mind and to bring greater harmony within my relationships. I now have a yogic 'toolkit' of techniques that I use to deal with life's daily challenges. I feel empowered to solve my own problems, and I feel uplifted and blessed by the benefits that yoga consistently brings. As a teacher I am passionate about helping you to express your own inner qualities optimally and creatively. Yoga can help you to find more contentment with who you are and where you are right now. The practices help you to slowly harmonise yourself, being designed to evolve the whole person.

I can provide instruction that caters to many different client groups with varying levels of experience and ability. I offer community and workplace classes.
