Our Shining Devis

Meet Adriana, our Studio Manager

Yoga

 

 I started my teaching journey as an Exercise to Music Instructor at age 16 and have loved teaching ever since. I studied performing arts and love bringing ballet and dance into my Barre Pilates classes. I qualified as a Level 3 Pilates teacher in July 2017 and completed a 500 hour, Hatha Yoga diploma in November 2018. I hope to encourage more people to stay active, practice Yoga and Meditation. I wish to share the beauty of the world we live in, as well as how to welcome love and guidance from the universe.

I learnt that Yoga is more than a class, it’s lifestyle choice, the spiritual practice is enlightening and the physical practice unites the mind, body and spirit. I continued my journey and qualified in Vinyasa Yoga in May 2021. I guarantee you will leave my classes feeling relaxed and an enhanced sense of well-being

I’m trained in and focus on Vinyasa Yoga, placing emphasis on moving mindfully through each pose, using the breath to create a flowing sequence, incorporating breath awareness and meditation to help create a sense of feeling grounded, calm and energised.

I trained as a Pilates teacher in 2017 and fell in love with the simplicity of each move, offering you a way of understanding your body’s ability using concentration, control and breath. Pilates allows us to stretch, strengthen and mobilise the whole body.

I trained as a Hatha yoga teacher in 2018. My classes are an invitation to roll out the red carpet for you to expand your mind and your relationship with your internal and external self. Yoga is not about being good at something, it’s about being good to yourself. This is what my classes are all about, we won’t worry about looking perfect, instead we will focus on what feels good for you. My Hatha flows are gentle for beginners with options to deepen your practice. So come along and simply ride the wave of your breath and take some time to create a little bit of space for you.

Rona

Pilates

 

Hi I’m Rona. My background is gymnastics. I started coaching when I was 14 when I passed my first coaching exam. I became a fully qualified coach at 19 and I’ve run a club for over 20 years.
After having twins in 2001, I decided to go into adult fitness and qualified in 2008. This enabled me to work around the children teaching mainly Pilates.

I am level 3 in Pilates, Personal Training & GP Referrals. I also qualified in spin/RPM/Stages, Boxercise, Core stability, Nutrition, Sports Nutrition, Reformer Pilates and Pilates for people with orthopaedic conditions.

In 2011 I went into teaching full time which I love. In my spare time, not that I have much, I still enjoy training at an Adult gymnastics club and running around after my 3 children.

Yoga

I’m thrilled to be teaching at Devi-Deva and sharing this wonderful practice with you. Since I began my journey 8 years ago, the physicality and spirituality of yoga has become the essential tonic for my mind, body and soul. My mission is to share this wisdom. I qualified as a teacher three years ago and have found it the most rewarding thing I could’ve chosen to do.

My students will gain strength, flexibility, balance and focus. I try to help students link movement with breath and stay in tune with how their whole body is feeling. I continually work on improving my own practice to gain more knowledge of this wonderful gift.

Shine Bright,

Yoga

 

Yoga means to unite. It is not just about getting into different poses, it is so much more. I learnt this when I did my 200hr YTT in Bali with YogaUnion. I teach predominantly Vinyasa style with mixtures of Hatha and Restorative Yoga. I offer different intensities in my classes so everybody has the opportunity to explore different levels and see what works for them and their bodies. I will always work towards making my classes accessible to everybody who wishes to come along and share their energy with me. You can find me on my mat with an assortment of crystals and my Palo Santo in hand as I am extremely passionate about energies, the seven Chakras and crystal healing.

When I went to do my YTT I didn’t have the intention of becoming a teacher but more to better my practice as well as deepen the connection I have with myself. From teaching my first ever class in the most bizarre and intense thunderstorm I knew that I had found my home. To see movement with the breath and the joy it brings to people is a feeling like no other. My yoga practice is about being kind to yourself, accepting where you are at that exact moment in time and knowing that every movement you make is absolutely perfect for you.

My classes are intended to unite you back to yourself in a non-judgmental environment whether it is through a dynamic and sometimes challenging flow or a more gentle and mindful flow. I am honoured to help you take time for yourself, to work on yourself and unite with yourself.

Nicola

Yoga

I have trained in Ballet, Modern & Contemporary Dance and my passion for this discipline grew into a career as a ballerina with Cape Town City Ballet. It was during my time here that Yoga presented itself to me. I went on to study Yoga with masters in South Africa, Hong Kong and India, becoming Yoga Alliance certified in Hatha & Ashtanga Yoga, as well as an Embodied Mama Pre & Postnatal practice which I felt inspired me to dive into after the birth of my first son.

My offerings follow a holistic approach with the inclusion of physical technique, somatics and embodiment. Yoga has undusted the path to stepping into my authenticity and noticing the magic that awaits us in every moment.

I hope to help bring my students home to their loving, nurturing and divine selves.

Diana

Yoga

 My name is Diana and I’ve been practicing yoga for around 17 years now. Over the years I’ve experienced a variety of yoga classes including dynamic, ashtanga vinyasa, hatha, rocket, mandala, hot yoga and even trapeze, as well as pregnancy yoga during both my pregnancies. I LOVE IT!! Not only is yoga a brilliant form of exercise but it is a great way for the body, mind and soul to connect and become one. Yoga promotes health and wellbeing and instills inner calm in this crazy hectic world we live in.

Physical fitness has always been a big part of my life. I attended dance school for 23 years and qualified as a Ballet Teacher in 2004. In recent years I have completed various Swimathons, bikeathons and triathlons and even took up rock climbing before falling pregnant with my first daughter in 2015. Yoga is the one thing that I simply cannot get enough of, and even though I successfully completed my 200 hour Yoga Alliance Accredited Teacher Training course in 2019, I feel I am still very much a student, forever learning and taking in new information, I have a huge thirst for knowledge about the beautiful world of yoga.

After I had my second daughter in 2017 my posture really suffered and I wasn’t a fan of my mum tum, so I started practicing yoga more and more and more. I became stronger, leaner and more flexible than I have ever been and coming onto my mat allows me to switch off my brain, focus on my breath and my practice, and forget about the never ending to do list I always have. I decided that I wanted to turn it into a career and share the practice of yoga with as many people as I can.
