(Linky) started doing yoga in 2015 to complement her running. She completely fell in love with the way it made her feel, on a physical, spiritual and mental level & wanted to learn more. She did her teaching training in 2018 and her Mentorship, as well as Creative Sequencing Advanced Teacher Training under Maya. She is passionate about teaching and learning, as she is a qualified primary school teacher. She considers herself a life- long student & is always looking to learn more.
Kristen completed her teacher training in Cape Town in 2015 and has been flowin' around town ever since. Kristen's classes offer a bit of playful fun in a supportive and compassionate environment, and will leave you feeling like you've been wrapped in a big warm blanket :)
Mimi fell in love with yoga on a retreat in rural Turkey in 2016, but couldn’t find a studio in Cape Town that felt like home until Unraveled opened its doors in 2017. Exactly three years to the day from that yoga retreat, she qualified as a teacher. When she’s not teaching, you’ll find her on her mat in child’s pose or taking photos of Huckleberry for Instagram.
Ash found yoga through meditation in 2009, and completed her first teacher training in 2014. She is passionate about helping people develop a kinder and deeper understanding of their bodies, their practice and their minds. Ashlea has done teacher trainings in various styles of yoga, but ultimately wants to guide students to grow to find curiosity, strength, trust and wisdom within themselves.
Kat discovered Yoga at the age of 16, in the village hall of the small English town she grew up in. For the last 10 years, she’s been traveling in search of the world's ancient mystery teachings. From Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas, Tantric yoga schools in Thailand to Mayan schools of metaphysics in Guatemala, her passion for the wisdom in these teachings is what she aims to share in her classes as well as a playful curiosity for life.
Candice’s early movement background began with Modern Dancing. After discovering Yoga in 2013, a whole new, energising approach to life opened. The concept of linking breath to body and body to mind, in fluid-like motion in Vinyasa, appealed greatly. The balance of calm, still moments and dynamic, strong movement is her real passion and the balance she aims to bring to students on their mats. Candice completed her 200 hr Teacher Training with Maya in 2019 at Unraveled Yoga.
Having traveled in life and work for many years, finding a local yoga studio has been Natalie’s way of grounding herself in new spaces as she attempts to navigate a daily conversation with her body and breath through her yoga practice. A trained teacher since 2018, Natalie is particularly interested in developing yoga and body work to help build resilient and dynamic individuals and communities.
