Marisa van Vuuren – Lead Yoga Teacher
“I see yoga as ‘practical psychology’ – providing the tools to cope with daily life and its challenges. Yoga’s direct positive effect on the body & mind transforms the relationship with ourselves and the world we live in. Yoga leads to self-acceptance and self-love which leads to realizing our true passions and gifts in life and the courage to follow our dreams to live a fulfilled life.”
