Originally from Canada, Malaika is now based in Australia from where she travels the world to teach and dance. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience both on and off the mat to inspire those on the path of self-transformation.
Malaika has been practicing yoga for over 18 years, which she has combined with teaching and performing African dance. Yoga and meditation have now become her refuge and tool for self-transformation.
Malaika completed her yoga teacher training in Australia in 2005 in the ISHTA system (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra & Ayurveda). ISHTA is a holistic approach to creating a balanced yoga practice embodying its multi-dimensional nature.
Since then, Malaika regularly teaches private and group classes in Australia, Costa Rica, Canada and Hawaii. She also created "The Ultimate Journey", a five-day initiation retreat for women and Elemental Trance Dance, an ecstatic dance journey through the 5 elements. Malaika is also a fully qualified Lomi Lomi therapist, a massage based on the traditional Hawaiian art of healing.
Her yoga classes provide a blend of ancient and contemporary teachings catered to your individual needs and she will encourage you to respect and listen to your own body using Pranayama and Visualisation to purify and quieten the mind; Asana to stretch, strengthen and balance the body; Meditation to expand your awareness and cultivate loving compassion for yourself and others, and Dance to reconnect mind, body and spirit and celebrate the gift of life.
You will be guided through a practice geared to bring you well-being, greater self awareness, inner and outer balance of the sacred Masculine and Feminine, and ultimately self-transformation and inner healing. Her teachings are suitable for beginners and intermediate levels.
