Her movement research is based on natural movements that nourish, energise and calm the body. With a focus on playfulness while building strength, flexibility, mobility and agility.

Maylene’s interest is in longevity, she follows a plant-based diet and lives in harmony with nature. She believes spending time moving in nature is restorative and part of living a balanced healthy life. Eating nourishing foods, practising mindfulness and continually learning about the body mind and soul interaction. “You must look at where you have been to know where you are going” Just be aware of how you do one thing in your life, and it will unfold how you do everything in your life.

Giulia Pnematicatos

With a background in fitness, Giulia has always followed an active lifestyle
– keeping her body moving has always been her number one goal. A
healthy and fit daily routine led her to discover her love of yoga, as the
fundamentals of her yoga practice allowed a deeper connection to her body
as well as her mind.

After finding her place on the mat, Giulia took the decision to undertake her
200hr teacher training at The Wellness Connection in Cape Town, which
ignited a deep passion for the world of yoga anatomy. Giulia’s classes not
only focus on strength building and alignment but also touch on a softer
side of connection through breath to movement, allowing the mind to
reconnect with the body.
