Welcome to Yogaflow! I am excited to share Yoga with you! The intention of my Yoga classes is to guide you through a transformational Yoga experience that will challenge, nourish, educate and inspire you.


As a Yoga teacher I will take all reasonable measures to ensure that my Yoga classes are conducted safely, with accurate alignment guidance and suitable adjustments. As a Yoga student you are expected to take full responsibility for the safety of your own body, and to practice with integrity. This means taking rest when you feel tired, asking questions if you are unsure, and openly communicating your doubts or fears.

Be aware that Yoga is a powerful form of physical and mental exercise that holds the ability to open, empower and transform gross and subtle patterns in your body and mind, yet like any other physical activity, the practice of Yoga also exposes you to the risk of injury.

Yoga is not a substitute for medical treatment. If you are currently suffering from any major injuries, illness or health concerns you are advised to consult with your physician before joining a Yogaflow class.

By attending a Yogaflow class you acknowledge that you have read the Yogaflow Guidelines and agree to accept full responsibility for any risks, injuries or damages, known or unknown, which you might incur whilst, or as a result of, attending a Yogaflow class.

Yoga Practice

  • Please book and confirm your spot before coming to class.
  • Kindly be considerate with cancellations. If possible give at least 12 hrs notice so that your spot can be offered to someone else.
  • Private Yoga classes are designed to suit your specific goals and level of expertise.
  • Group Yoga classes are labelled as Intermediate level (suitable for Yoga students with at least two years of Yoga experience) or Foundation level (suitable for beginners). Choose the appropriate level according to your ability.
  • Please let me know if you have any injuries or health concerns.
  • Wear comfortable, fitted and flexible clothing that allows you to move your body into various postures with ease.
  • It is advised to practice Yoga on an empty stomach. Do not eat for at least two hours before attending a Yoga class.
  • It is not advised to drink much water during a Yoga class. Drink lots of water afterwards.
  • Please pack all Yoga props and mats back neatly after class.

Goal of Yoga

The ultimate goal of Yoga is inner freedom. Physical Yoga postures (Asana) are essentially to prepare the body for deeper practices like conscious breathing (Pranayama) and meditation (Dhyana). In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Yoga is defined as: ‘the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind’.

Of course through regular Yoga practice you will become emotionally happier, physiologically healthier and anatomically more toned, but the biggest benefit of Yoga is greater peace of mind.

I look forward to share this evolutionary art and science with you!

Heart Smiles,
Melanie de Villiers
