Rahle Dusheiko

Rahle Dusheiko

 

Rahle’s journey with Iyengar Yoga started in 1999, with a single book, “Yoga – The Iyengar Way”. Since the beginning, she has always been very interested in the practice, methodology and philosophy of yoga. Her interest in anatomy feeds her understanding of yoga’s effect on the physical body, while the study of yogic philosophy helps merge that with the mental and spiritual aspects.

It has always fascinated Rahle that the challenges confronted, both on the mat and off the mat, are similar, as are their solutions. She is deeply passionate about helping people find ease in their bodies and balance in their lives through yoga. After an incredible and life changing journey, she completed the 3 year Introductory certification through the Iyengar Institute of South Africa, under the expert guidance and support of her teacher Brigitta Tummon, along with the other incredibly wise and knowledgable Iyengar teacher trainers in Cape Town.

She has attended workshops given by international teachers such as Stephanie Quirk, Lois Steinberg, the late Mary Dunn, John Schumacher, Faeq Biria, Raya Datta and Corinne Biria.

She also had the privilege of attending classes overseas of James Murphy New York) and Gabriella Giubilaro(Florence).

In her classes, you can expect thoughtfully planned sequences which will both challenge you and foster learning about the wonderful art and science of yoga. You will definitely feel calmer, a sense of well-being and gain a deeper insight into yourself.

LAUREN BURGER is an internationally certified 3HO Kundalini Yoga & Meditation teacher. She began practicing Vinyasa and Asthanga in 2005. In 2012 she discovered Kundalini. By early 2014, Lauren began sharing her passion and knowledge. As her classes became more popular, it was clear that she was being called to become a teacher.

Lauren sees each class as an opportunity to clear the internal space for deeper introspection into one’s practice and self. “I believe that when we are able to tap into our internal stillness, it can be used as a mechanism to grow our awareness and progress spiritually.”

Yogi Bhajan, described yoga as an art and a science that can help one navigate life’s challenges: “It is a science, and knowledge, and art, where mind and body can work in union and spirit will back it up.”

Lauren’s classes are suitable for all ages, and are aimed at both beginners and advanced practitioners. She offers private classes and workshops. All sessions need to be booked directly with Lauren.

Heart in Motion is a practice in awareness; a witnessing of body, mind, heart and spirit. Through the mediums of art, dance, writing, visualisation and reflection our internal landscape may be revealed – offering up insights that, without paying attention, can so easily go unnoticed or unheard. Through creativity and movement, you are offered the opportunity to tune in and acknowledge YOU in your entirety. At the heart of this work is acceptance of all that is. As you dance, you are invited to connect to feelings and sensations running through you. You are encouraged to get in touch with your individuality, developing a relationship with YOUR inner and outer worlds. Observing without judgement and turning off any critical inner dialogue gives you permission to move with freedom, seeking pleasure and health. Similarly, in the art studio, by tuning out of self-criticisms or restrictions you may have placed on your creative abilities, you open the door to incredible opportunity and wonder. Creating with spontaneity, letting go of any preciousness for the end product and staying in the moment allows for the unconscious to rise, for the intuitive to be heard, for the mind’s chatter to still and the heart to stir. So join me! Make the time! Set aside a few hours a week to reconnect with You. Come and dance! Come and create! Set your Heart in Motion!
