New Mysore Teacher

Mysore Yoga Cape Town is fortunate to have Sharline Rofail, an experienced local and international Ashtanga Mysore teacher starting on the 2nd of Feb. She is a dedicated yoga practitioner who captures both timeless grace and focused mindfulness. She teaches in the living tradition of Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Sharline Rofail comes from Johannesburg and has been living and studying in Copenhagen since 2010. In the very beginning when yoga was just a mysterious buzzword in her ears, she attended many weird and wonderful yoga classes and had firmly decided that yoga and the slippery yoga mat was simply not her scene. Years later a friend dragged her to an Ashtanga class which finally won her over. Living in Copenhagen has presented many inspiring opportunities for Sharline to assist, learn and work with various senior and authorised teachers such as Mikko Seppinen.

Sharline’s adjustments help students realise their abilities beyond the limitations of the mind and helps create awareness on how to use the body. They are both gentle yet focused and encouraging. A helping hand when it’s just a tough day, moment or asana.

“Ashtanga Yoga is for all people: old people, young people, fat people, skinny people—only not for lazy people.” – Sri K Pattabi Jois
