About

Yoga is an ancient, classic, beautiful practice that will surely change your life.

You do not have to be flexible to do yoga. You don’t have to be able to touch your toes or do the postures that you see on the covers of yoga magazines! Yoga is non-competitive and you will be encouraged to progress at your own pace.

Each class consists of postures (asana), controlled breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation and reflection (dhyana) and relaxation. We will explore and adapt different postures to make it safe, comfortable and beneficial to you. Some of my classes are more restorative and gentle, or are perfect if you are recovering from illness. Please get in touch if you have questions.

The benefits are plentiful: you will feel more powerful, and you will have more energy as you stretch and breathe and move.
Chances are you will smile more, feel happier, healthier, sleep better and be more focused. And the list goes on. Yoga works on physical, as well as mental and emotional levels. You will get to know yourself once again (and learn to be kind to yourself and others).

Through yoga you will make new friends and have fun!

More About Me

I attended my first yoga class because I felt that my body ‘needed a good stretch’. I settled down on the mat wearing my trainers and a nervous smile not really knowing what to expect. That first class was the beginning of an amazing journey.

Today, 20 years later, I can honestly say that yoga has changed my life. I love the stillness and inner strength that I have found and the beautiful, kind people I meet through yoga. I love the fact that it is not competitive and that we are all encouraged to progress at our own pace. I love that feeling after the last OM when my world is a kinder, gentler place once again.

More than anything I love sharing yoga. I completed my teacher training (Hatha yoga) in 2009 at the Durbanville Yoga Centre in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. I have taught in health centres, yoga studios, one-on-one classes and corporate offices. I am also qualified as a children’s yoga teacher and Reiki Master.

In 2013 my family relocated to Plymouth. I love teaching yoga and practicing Reiki in this beautiful place.

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering”. – Saint Augustine

I offer the following class options:

  • Group classes
  • One-to-one
  • Corporate (perfect option for lunch hour breaks)

It is advisable to speak to your health care practitioner before you start any exercise program.

I have been going to yoga classes with Venita for a few years now and would highly recommend it! She encompasses all aspects of mind, body and spirit into her classes and is very knowledgeable about all three! She encourages you to go at your own pace and adapts positions to suit your ability and needs. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now. – Keri
