Where it all began

Tarryn's passion for yoga began the moment she stepped into her first class in 2015. As a "newbie" to the yoga community, she started looking for inspiration and support from other South African yogis. She spent time searching for yoga events and trainings in Pretoria, and found that information wasn’t easily available. Searching through website after website, she had hoped that there was a singular space where all yoga-related information was available! She completed her teacher training in 2016. She explored the need for a singular platform where all yoga-related news and events could be made accessible. What started out as a single Instagram page has now progressed to a multi-faceted online platform. The Yoga South Africa website, newsletter and blog was launched in March 2017 and has continued to flourish day by day.

“I am so grateful for the support and contribution of everyone who has believed in this platform. This community continues to inspire me.”
