Johannesburg Studio

Yoga and climbing are very synergistic. Climbing requires core strength, balance, breathing and focus and mental discipline – all skills that Yoga helps with tremendously, which is why so many climbers do Yoga.

Beginners and non-climbers are very welcome at all our classes. Just introduce yourself to the teacher and let them know it’s your first time.

Come early to reserve a spot as space is limited per class. Pay your day pass or swipe your membership card at the front desk.

First timers will need to complete our waiver.

Notify the instructor of injuries or medical conditions, if you are new or pregnant.

Classes are subject to change. Space is on a first come first serve basis.

A few Yoga mats are available in the studio but we advise you to bring your own or purchase an eco-friendly mat in our gear shop as rental mats are limited.

Each class will be slightly different to the next, depending on who is instructing, what music is played and what the instructor offers on the day. All classes suitable for all levels.

Johannesburg Instructors

Jarryd

Budokon Instructor

Qualifications – Jarryd has been practicing for over 17 years and completed his Budokon Teacher Training in 2017.

What motivates me – Budokon Yoga invites all yogis to a strong martial arts based flow. A dance between the yogi and the warrior, the mind and the body.

My Yoga style – I view the yogic space as a safe and joyous space. With this practice you will build strength and dynamic agility in the mind as well as a harmonious and powerful relationship with your body.

Jess

Pilates/Vinyasa Teacher

Qualification – 200 hour YTT at Hotpod Yoga Pretoria

What motivates me – Movement that facilitates healing on a physical and emotional level is what drew me to yoga in the first place. Yoga is this connection between mind and body, heart and soul.

My yoga style – slow and nurturing with a strong emphasis on correct alignment and balance.

My yoga classes will give you a strong understanding of the basic yoga postures, as well as challenge you to try out more of the “intermediate” ones.

Sajiv

Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

In 2015 Sajiv completed a Vinyasa yoga teacher training facilitated by Living Yoga and immediately took the opportunity to teach.

He draws inspiration from ancient yogic texts, dance, music and life in general to teach classes that require not only strength and focus, but also bring a very playful element to your practise.  His classes are mentally and physically uplifting and challenging as he loves doing backbends, arm balances and being upside down in inversions to look at things from a different perspective.

James

Fundamental Yoga Teacher

Qualification – 4 year Iyengar Introductory Certificate (2017), Jivamukti Teacher Certification (2011), Hatha Teacher Certification (2006)

What motivates me – My love for teaching and the hope of waking up

My yoga style – I’ve always tried to emphasise getting clear on the basics to create a strong foundation. This means focusing on the underlying principles of yoga so that people can understand the reasons behind the practice. My classes are workshop based with a lot of detail in the instruction. I believe if you get the basics right, the fancy stuff will sort itself out. And meditation: don’t forget the meditation part. 🙂

Roald

Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

Qualification – 200 hour Vinyasa yoga at Living Yoga.

What motivates me – I’ve always been a very active person and yoga teaches you to connect your body, breath and mind.

My Yoga style – Meditation, finding joy and steadiness in every pose.

Carly

Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

What motivates me – Deepening the understanding of oneself by connecting mind and body to create harmony.

My Yoga style – I believe in creating harmony in all aspects of our lives. I try create balance in my classes, flowing through both easy and challenging poses creating a space for you to challenge yourself and then having a space to relax and be at ease. Exploring our mind and body expect a little meditation and breath control in the mix.

Nathalie

Pilates Teacher

Nathalie has completed the Comprehensive Pilates Certification in 2014 and have been teaching pilates for 6 years, as well as aerial and personal training.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Susanna

Vinyasa/Yin Yoga Teacher

There are so many guides – yogis and non-yogis – out there that have hepled shape me and still shape me as a Yoga Guide.

After teaching for 9 years I can say with certainty that aspects of this practice and the way one guides people through it, change; all – the – time!

One of the most profound things that I have learnt is to stop straining and pushing and to instead practise EASE. Finding ways in your yoga practice to move and breathe and feel what is really going on while you are practising … and then understanding and experiencing what it means to move with ease IN YOUR OWN BODY. This inevitably will flow over into the rest of your life.

So you come to a class, and together we’ll figure out what works for you, and where you can let go a bit … or a whole lot!

It’s a symbioses, where we all benefit from practising ease.

Jacobus

Vinyasa Yoga Teacher

Qualification – 200 hours YTT

I’ve been practising yoga since 2015, when I started trying to escape my master’s, at least for a little bit every day. This evolved into teacher training in 2019, mostly for selfish reasons. After having completed the course, I was overwhelmed with a duty to share. I’ve been teaching ever since.

If you want to learn to move with more awareness and intention this class is for you. Each week has overlap with the previous week as starting from scratch each session limits understanding and growth.
