Yoga is for everybody and for “Every Body” is my favorite saying!

I teach from the heart towards the heart of everyone that finds themselves on a mat in one of my classes. I believe in safety first and respect towards your own body and your body’s needs, which can change every day with the flow of your biorhythms.

I am a born and bred South African with the rhythm of Africa in my blood, and that sometimes comes to the fore in my Vinyasa classes.  I teach Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, with a touch of Tai Chi or Qui gong, or sometimes a few dance-moves.  I am passionate about movement and breath and the natural flow and grace of the human form. I incorporate TRE (trauma release exercises) when I sense the need for it in one of my classes. I am a freestyle teacher that loves to connect people with their own bodies. I am an Artist, Lecturer, Communications specialist and Yogi (since 2003)

I am Samantha van der Wouden-Diedericks (Samshine)
