Tegan Burger

Thanks to my mother I've been fortunate enough to have had yoga in my life from a very young age, however only in 2011 did everything fall into place. I completed Living Yoga's Teacher Training that year and began teaching in 2012.

Since then I have completed another teacher training with Jim Harrington, as well as his 500 hour (advanced) training. In 2013 I was even more fortunate to go to India where I met many wonderful teachers and wandered through some amazing ashrams.

In April-May 2015 I completed the 300 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training in New York with David Life and Sharon Gannon. In July 2016 I completed my 50 hour Budokon training with the founder Cameron Shayne. I am also currently studying a BSc in Nutritional Science which I plan to further help my students as well as myself.

Yoga keeps me in check with myself, when I don’t practice, I'm not myself. The more I practice, the more I get to know who I really am.

Join me as we get to know ourselves.

Michelle van Straaten yoga

Michelle van Straaten

Michelle van Straaten has been practicing yoga for the past 16 years. While her roots are in the Ashtanga Vinyasa system her teaching has branched out into a more dynamic, fluid vinyasa flow practice. Michelle’s classes have a focus on building ‘strength’ and building heat in the body - using the fire of the practice to transform our experience into something alchemical. Over the weekend she will guide yogis through three workshop style classes with plenty of time spent inverting, arm balancing and playing!

Arco Trio (JHB)

This year the AcroYoga workshops at Sun Bear Yoga Festival will be hosted by the playful triad from the Making Shapes Acroyoga group based in Johannesburg and Pretoria respectively.

Flyer: Abedah Musengi
Base: Maxine Bisset
Spotter: Michiel Van Staden

As a team they strive to create an environment in which participants can learn, release themselves from fear and play safely. Making Shapes take as many opportunities as possible to arrange AcroJams at Emmarentia so that like-minded people have a chance to exchange skills and meet.

AcroYoga creates the perfect platform to explore outside of ones comfort zone by teaching individuals how to connect by communicating effectively, having an awareness others emotional state as well as learning to be compassionate to the needs of others.

Making Shapes looks forward to sharing an energetic and structured workshop where participants can leave with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.

“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend.” ― Bruce Lee

Mischa Palm

When I teach I let go as much as possible so I may be an open channel for creative energy to pass through. Every student is everyone’s teacher so I plug my heart into everyone and do my best to translate the teachings, which present themselves in the moment. I believe it’s not all up to me. Like any recipe, there must be just the right amount of all the ingredients to produce epic flavour. When I teach I mix my given ingredients well with all other unpredictable and delicious ingredients to co-create with the playful universe and be a part of something grand. I never know what is going to happen. And if I attempt to know too much, something is lost. I love life and food in raw true form. Much fear has brought me to where I am, so I encourage all sides of everyone to be welcomed, honoured and faced. For fears, if faced, are like really good manure for the soul.

“I Love handstands, the ocean, motorcycles, vegetables, safety pins, smells, graffiti, moss, bicycles, turtles, dirt, dancing, beets, mustard, music, language, insects, teaching, surprises, shaking, wisdom, nonsense, yard sales, honey, anatomy, stationary stores, instruments, nut butter, spoons, fears, rocks, coffee, writing, Art, laughing, naps, arugula, crying, singing, love, wrinkles, mango’s, learning, breathing, being, Life.”
