Yarisha had an extensive 15 year award winning professional dance career specialising in Contemporary and Flamenco dance as well as in dance Choreography. In 2009, Yarisha began to intensify her yoga practice in order to rehabilitate her dance injuries. It was a natural progression to complete her teacher’s examination in which she qualified with Distinction. In 2010, Yarisha left South Africa and traveled Asia for two years with her husband where she taught English and Yoga. Whilst in Phuket Thailand, she worked as a yoga therapist and detox consultant at a Detox Retreat Centre helping to heal guests with various emotional and physical problems. On their return home, she founded her new Yoga and Wellness venture called Yoga by Yarisha which she ran for five years in Johannesburg before relocating to KZN. It was here that she taught at two top studios in Umhlanga gathering a beautiful following of students who enjoyed her unique classes. Although now based in Cape Town, she continues to offer yoga classes, yoga therapy and wellness retreats across South Africa bringing healing to people from all walks of life. Yarisha was also featured on SABC’s Mela television programme where she presented Yoga segments. Her style of yoga is influenced by the variety of yoga training she has received, her travels as well as her extensive dance career bringing you an authentic and dynamic practice rooted in spirit, intuition and general life experience!
