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 and contemporary dance during 10 years at the Royal Academy of Dance she attended her first official Yoga class in Durban, South Africa.
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, Vanessa 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.

My mother will tell you my yoga journey began as a toddler and she’s not wrong. As a little girl, I would do acro-yoga on her bed. It developed into attending all of my mom’s yoga classes. From a young age, I was blown away by how I felt in my body and I instantly knew that I wanted to learn more.
After years of practice with my mom, I decided that is was time to take the next step in my yogic journey. It was time for me to complete my first yoga teacher training.
In 2011 I completed my first 200-hour vinyasa teacher training in Johannesburg. I began teaching the following year, but the passion to learn and grow as a teacher remained.
In 2012 I completed a second 200-hour teacher training, this time in ashtanga held by Jim Harrington in Cape Town. And still, the fire to continue to dive deeper into yoga burned.
A year later, in 2013, I completed a 500-hour advanced teacher training with Jim Harrington in India. The experience was life-changing, as all my teacher training up until this point had been. I spent time in various ashrams with the most beautiful teachers while being surrounded by incredible culture. I still felt I had more to learn, and that I could continue to grow as a teacher.
In 2015 I ventured west to New York to complete my 300-hour Jivamukti training with Sharon Ganon and David Life. The month was intense and although I had already established myself as a yoga teacher, I returned back to South Africa with a newfound sense of strength in my teaching.
A year later I traveled to Germany to complete a 50-hour Budokon teacher training. With each teacher training, I learn new lessons, new ways of thinking, and a new understanding. Budokon training was no different.
In 2020 I completed another 300-hour teacher training. I am proud to consider myself a life long student in this meaningful practice. It is a privilege to be able to continuously invest in deepening my understanding of yoga and I am truly grateful for every teacher whose path has connected with mine.
I will always be looking to learn, grow, and develop, not only as a teacher but as a student too. For me, Yoga is about bringing myself to each present moment and in those moments living as the best version of myself.
My intention is for you to meet the best version of yourself.
