Sharline is originally from Johannesburg where she studied a degree in Fine Arts and ran her own little cafes for many years. She then moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, where she studied a degree in Global Nutrition and Health. Living in Copenhagen presented many inspiring opportunities for her to learn from and work with various KPJAYI authorised Ashtanga teachers from around the globe such as her long term teacher Mikko Seppinen. In 2015 she moved to Cape Town to head the Ashtanga program for Mysore Yoga Cape Town.
Sharline brings with her a decade of dedicated practice and teaching experience. She regularly travels to Mysore, India, to deepen her understanding of yoga, and to connect to the Ashtanga Yoga lineage of Sri K. Patthabi Jois and his grandson Sharath. Her teaching style is gentle yet focused and encouraging. She hopes to help students realise their abilities beyond the limitations of their mind.
In the mornings you will also meet Jani Roodt, who is an assistant teacher. In December 2017 and January 2018, Sharline will be studying in Mysore, India, and KPJAYI authorised teacher, Anna Laurin, from Helsinki, Finland, will be running the program during her absence. Both Anna and Sharline are of the belief that if approached with softness, patience, perseverance and curiosity, anyone can benefit from the Ashtanga Yoga practice.
