Marulamala Yoga Studio
“Marulamala Yoga” is a wordplay fusion of the owner, Catherine's, passion for yoga in all it physical and spiritual forms as well as her love for Africa, Asia and all their unceasing natural wonders.
Creating the studio in Hoedspruit in August 2016 was the fulfillment of a longstanding dream which honestly began ruminating when Catherine was in Japan and first started practicing yoga seriously. The studio space she virtually “lived” in there (as she was there most days) created by her dear friend and first real yoga teacher Leza Lowitz, became an oasis, a safe haven, a retreat from a busy life and head.
She intended to re-create in a sense the same feeling, atmosphere and environment for her own studio (as she knew it would happen one day) and here it is – a world apart – in Hoedspruit which she now calls home. Many of the detail and influences in creating Marulamala have been drawn from her early experiences in Tokyo as well as from around the world, but at the same time she has tried to cultivate and embrace the local influences as well.
"I am very happy with the result and I hope you love Marulamala Yoga Studio as much as I do and that it also becomes your oasis and special place to retreat. I presently teach a variety of group and private classes together with a team of wonderful teachers."
