Magdarie (Mags) van Staden - Vinyasa Yoga Instructor
"My journey into yoga started back in 2010 when I joined yoga classes at my local gym. It was a great add-on to my already active lifestyle. After a couple months of diligent practice I started seeing an improvement in my strength, endurance and flexibility. Yoga also served as the perfect remedy to release tight and rigid muscles after a strenuous training session. But with yoga, we're not just working on a physical level. We shift things and we change things – unconsciously at first, but it is there. So from there my interest in the deeper elements and philosophy of yoga developed.”
“What I enjoy most about teaching yoga, is having the potential to make someone’s day better by introducingstudents to the tools to become quieter, calmer and more mindful.”
Practicing yoga since 2010, Mags began her formal Satyananda yoga training in 2014 with Charene Swartzberg from Yoga Connection in Pretoria. In 2015, she completed her RYT 200 hour Vinyasa Teacher Training under the guidance of Diego Baldi from Inner Wellness in Durban.
