Panther Vinyasa
Calgary, Bragg Creek, Alberta
Yoga discovered me almost 10 years ago when I moved to Canada from South Africa to pursue my acting dreams. I was completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting when I took my first hot yoga class, I loved it and immediately knew I wanted to teach and share the inspiration I gained from my experience. So I set out on a wild journey to complete my training with world renowned Baron Baptiste and formed my own company Panther Vinyasa. In the last few years I have been a full time teacher, I have assisted classes at Wanderlust in Whistler, I have taken workshops with Ryan Leier, Noah Maze, Chelsey Chorus and many more inspiring and knowledgable teachers from around the globe, last but not least I have co-written a teacher training, The Adjuster Method and have many other projects brewing behind the scenes at Panther Vinyasa.

As a trained stage actor and a yoga instructor I integrate these 2 worlds to create a memorable experience for all my students, I get goofy with confidence and teach with passion. I like to say I ‘choreograph’ my classes, almost like a yogic dance and I use music to get students moving with grace and fluidity through intricate and intelligent sequencing. At times I bring in some tribal influences to inspire expression and culture! I can’t wait to share my classes with you and cultivate community at Calgary’s first yoga festival.
