About Vanessa Burger

Anahata Yoga Shala's creator

RYT500 +RYT200 - Yoga Alliance

Is an international multi-yoga teacher with a big open heart and the amazing ability to connect with the divine inside you. She has a passionate love for life, and this shines through as you enjoy her unique

brand of rejuvenating yoga together. 

Vanessa was introduced to yoga by her mother as a young child and fell very much in love with the informal practice. After exploring many other sports and exploring both classic ballet and contemporary dance during 10 years at the Royal Academy of Ballet, in South Africa, she attended her first official Yoga class in Durban 1999.


Relocating to Johannesburg in 2002, Vanessa attended many other yoga classes with various teachers from all over the world. In 2003 Vanessa discovered Reiki and went on to do a course in Dr. Usui Reiki. She completed her Reiki Masters and now incorporates this healing subtlety into her yoga classes.

In 2010, started a 2 year study of Shamanism with Lionel Berman, in Johannesburg, learning about energy, the earth, consciousness, awareness, self, how to connect deeper and to intensify our already existing connection to the earth and all that is. Vanessa began her RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training in 2010, with the late Ingrid Eriksson, who was personally trained by Pattabios Jois in India. On completing the training, Vanessa started teaching Vinyāsa, Asthanga, Hot Yoga (Bikram’s yoga), Hatha and Pre-Natal Yoga. Yoga is addictive!!!

In 2012, she arrived in South Goa, India to study Traditional Tantra yoga for 1 year, at Shri Kali Ashram and obtained 500 hours certification with Yoga Alliance as a RYT, qualified to teach other yogis to become teachers. Vanessa's quest for knowledge and liberation of consciousness promoted her to take her studies further to France with the renowned Margot Anand, starting on her intensive 2 year "Skydancing Teacher Training" Certification, from early 2013 - 2014. Skydancing Tantra - studies on Sacred Conscious Sexuality.  

Furthering her studies in herself and the human psyche, she enrolled in another international course "Sexual Grounding Therapy" starting in May 2014. Vanessa firmly believes that a good teacher is always a student, learning from all aspects of life, including her own students.

Vanessa focuses on getting her yogis into the most blissful state of deep relaxation, in her restorative Tantra Yoga classes and a good vigorous workout in her Tantra Vinyasa classes. Many of her students, some first time to yoga claim to have profound spiritual experiences after a 90 minutes class.

Yogini Vanessa can help you gain new life skills, transform your fears into life-changing accomplishments, become happier on a deeper level and inspire dreams more aligned with your true purpose.

Vanessa is proud Mother to Tegan Burger, also a Yoga Teacher Trainer with her own school,  located in Johannesburg South Africa.  

Vanessa passed on the tradition from her mother teaching her in the garden, at an early age of 4 years, to teaching Tegan in the garden, at a very early age too.  One, half year after Vanessa started her Yoga Teacher training, Tegan followed in her mothers foot steps, taking a different path with different school. 

"Watching Tegan grow and now she can teach me, I am so Grateful filld with Love"
