We spoke to Philippa, who owns and runs INNER SPACE YOGA SOUND AND MOTION in Plettenberg Bay. Hosting classes in picturesque
outdoor settings overlooking the bay, her classes are a treat. Trained at the famous Sanctuary Resort and Spa in Thailand by well-known
and highly knowledgeable yoga therapist Shy Sayar, Philippa has this to say about life and yoga. “When we feel spacious and clear inside
we can move through life with more ease and grace, experiencing a lightness of being and overall sense of wellness and joy. Through
practicing yoga regularly we dissolve unnecessary blockages and stress within, climb deeper into ourselves to embody all that we are, and
consciously connect with our higher selves through committed focus and motion. When our inner space is shiny and bright, our outer space
generally reflects the same!” Not much more to be said really. Namaste.
