I walked into my first yoga class in 2005, completed my training in 2010, taught part-time and finally full-time in 2013 when I settled back in Cape Town. My approach to life and yoga is lighthearted and fun and I enjoy expressing this in my classes by creating a flow and freedom of poses wherein you can feel & explore your body & mind and apply this back into your life. This is the kind of yoga I enjoy and share.


Happy Go Lucky.




Having studied and trained in mindfulness meditation and Buddhist-based psychology, Michal delights in offering meditation instruction. His travels to centres across South Africa and to Europe for courses and retreats have infused his life with the practise of being present. In 2015 he completed several meditation courses at Karmê Chöling in Vermont, USA, and has been authorised to give meditation instruction in the Shambhala tradition which draws on ancient Tibetan forms of practice. He leads weekly meditation groups and spends his time off the cushion cycling in remote places and running local trails.

Michal’s interest in extending mindfulness to physical training grew into a passion for Pilates. He is a Body Arts and Sciences certified Pilates trainer and believes in empowering his clients through self-awareness, while strengthening their bodies and minds.

Claudia Uffhaus first started the Practice of Yoga in 2007, and decided to take her practice further to becoming a teacher in 2010. She completed her 200 hour Ashtanga teacher training course with Jim Harrington in Cape Town.
With a history of Rock Climbing, Tai Chi, Yoga and a great love for the outdoors, she has embraced this new direction in which life has taken her and ties in some of the lessons she has learnt from the various aspects of her life style.
Claudia encourages practitioners to become more aware of their own body, their breath, their thoughts and the present moment in order to begin a self practice.
Mandy encountered yoga over a decade ago but it was her interest in the alternative healing that eventually led her to exploring yoga more deeply. Hailing from a background in Psychology formally, she began by studying Reiki and Crystal Healing in the winelands of Franschoek in Cape Town.  In 2015 she completed her training in the Himalayas in India and where she first taught briefly as part of a meditation circle in Asia.  Primarily she is a student and teacher of Vinyasa, a firm believer that the lessons learnt about the mind-body connection in meditative flow can be translated to important lessons off the mat helping to expand our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.  She also teaches Yin Yoga, incorporating the ancient wisdom of the energy systems found in the far east.  The premise of her approach to teaching is to create a space where individuals find the freedom to adapt and develop the classes she offers them in a way that is beneficial for their own bodies.
Peace, love, flow.
I first came to yoga, many years ago, with the attitude that it was just another form of exercise, but soon realised that there are many benefits of a regular yoga practice. It greatly reduces my stress and calms the incessant mind chatter, and so I quickly fell in love with the practice. After many years of practice, I completed my teacher training with Jim Harrington in 2016. I strongly feel that we are conditioned to continuously push ourselves to our limits in our daily activities, leading to unnecessary stress. For this reason, I encourage yoga practitioners to come to their mats with a sense of compassion for themselves. The idea is for practitioners to be content with where they are at in their practice and their lives. Being present on your mat, you can fully express who you are in a nurturing and non-judgemental space.
Carmen completed her 300hr YTT with Jim Harrington and, fascinated by the empowering practice of Budokon, she completed her training with Dave Gardner and became a Budokon teacher in March 2017. Carmen loves sharing her experience and encourages curiosity and exploration within the practice and yourself, while teaching with focus on safe alignment and functional movement.
Chelsea first started yoga in 2014, from there her love for the practice only grew stronger. Over time, the desire to become a teacher and spread the love & knowledge of yoga finally came to life in 2017, where she was able to complete her 200hr teacher training at YogaLife. Even as a teacher she continues to grow and evolve, staying mindful and curious, on and off the mat. Her classes will leave you feeling energized and ignited.
