Marianne Wiid

Marianne is an Iyengar Yoga teacher who holds regular Yoga classes in Hermanus and Stanford.  She has been practising yoga for over 15 years and once she completed her three year teacher training course in Cape Town, opened her own studio in Hermanus.  Marianne approaches life holistically combining her passion for Yoga, healing and bringing joy to others in all aspect of her life.  

The De Hoop Yoga Retreat will provide an enriching experience in a venue that will unify your body, mind and spirit. Although an accomplished Yoga practitioner, Marianne recognises that Yoga is a continuous journey, one that never ends.  This allows her to guide her students with compassion in order to allow them to emerge a better version of themselves.

Since her recent return from a five week enriching Yoga training experience at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune (India), Marianne is excited about sharing her journey with like-minded Yogis at the upcoming De Hoop Yoga Retreat.  The Retreat offers to energize, renew, relieve tension and give an overall sense of wellbeing.  The Retreat will offer a meditative space for Asana practise and Pranayama surrounded by the natural beauty of De Hoop Nature Reserve.
