“The moment I step onto my mat the outside world disappears. There is no expectation, no judgement. For that time, I know I am going on a physical, spiritual and often emotional journey”

Karen Alsfine

I am drawn to the practice of yoga in the pursuit of health; a body, harmonious, aligned, and balanced. Each time I come to my mat, I am consciously grateful for this and I work to safeguard my body, for it forms the conduit to my mind, and to stillness. My practice of yoga is more than simply doing. For me, yoga is all about becoming.

My desire as a teacher is to extend the deep seated magic of yoga to students - the beautiful, consoling quiet, the rewarding art of presence over productivity, the manifestation of spirit, and the joy. There is so much joy in yoga. Yoga is certainly about mobility and stability, flexibility and strength, but yoga also creates space on the inside, allowing for stillness in a busy, busy world, allowing for self-compassion, and allowing our breath to guide us through all the complexity.

Bruce Burger

Before Yoga, Bruce led a professional corporate life. In 2006 he studied Reiki at the Reiki Master Level and then in 2007 Mindfulness Meditation, and so began his journey into conscious living, eventually leading him to Yoga. First studying Vinyasa Yoga (ERYT200) and then studying Jivamukti Yoga (Certified 300 Hours), under guidance of his yoga teachers, Sharon Gannon and David Life, the founders of Jivamukti Yoga NYC.
Bruce compassionately teaches all levels of Yogis: absolute beginners to advanced Yoga practices, preferring to keep his teaching accessible and relevant to a modern world.

“I love Yoga, and I love sharing it with others in order to manifest positive changes in this world.”

Lia Mundell

Lia started her yoga practice many years ago as it was the one space where she felt blissfully alone yet as a body, surrounded by like-minded practitioners and beautiful teachers to look up to. She became a teacher because she wanted to do something that was so much bigger than herself and to give something of what she had learned to others.

“Teaching yoga is a little sanctuary I have in my week, to connect and guide students through such a healing tradition. But Yoga isn’t just a health ritual, it’s a movement, and every day I am so awakened by how it changes lives”.

Dize Watson

Dize Watson has been practicing Iyengar yoga since she was eighteen. She has been fortunate to learn and study with world-renowned Iyengar teacher Faeq Biria since 1999. During this time, she has attended various workshops, summer intensives, assisted in general classes, pregnancy classes and “therapeutic classes” and also taught classes at Le Centre de Yoga Iyengar de Paris.
Dize currently lives in Johannesburg and teaches both group and private classes. She has been dedicated to the practice of yoga for nineteen years and has been teaching for fifteen years.

“Yoga has benefited me so much and in so many ways. I am doubly blessed that as a teacher it is so fulfilling to see the positive impact yoga has on others..”

Therese Spring

Therese began her yoga journey over 10 years ago. Since then she has been dedicated to the practice, teaching and integration of yoga into her daily lifestyle. Therese's teaching style comes from deep within - a place of integrity, humility, kindness, sensitivity and connection.

Both teaching and practice have always been home to Therese. She loves the creative appeal of yoga - where every class is a journey, a very personal one and each one is different from the last. Her teaching style incorporates both a huge respect for the tradition of simple postures combined with the fun of the occasional challenge.

“Yoga is where we return, day after day, it is where the dust settles”

Tegan Burger

Thanks to her mother, Tegan Burger has been fortunate enough to have had yoga in her life from a very young age. Tegan has been teaching since 2012. During this time she has advanced her training and teaching. To complement her yoga journey, Tegan is currently studying a BSc in Nutritional Science.

“Yoga keeps me in check with myself, when I don't practice, I'm not myself. The more I practice, the more I get to know who I really am. Join me as we get to know ourselves.”
