About Yoga Mama

Yoga Mama is a practice based on the concept of Womb Yoga, a style of yoga that is an excellent form of pregnancy exercise. Womb Yoga draws from various yoga practices into a yoga form that has just the right balance to nurture, nourish and mentor women of all ages and stages of life.

    "God could not be everywhere, therefore he made mothers " - Jewish Proverb


    All Yoga Classes are facilitated by J’anaki Ra, founder and owner of Yoga Mama. J’anaki began her personal yoga practice in 2004 at the Sivananda Yoga Centre in London. After many years of enduring the corporate world she decided to embark upon a journey of the Soul, completing travels throughout Asia, and most notably the birth-place of Yoga: India.

    Whilst in India J’anaki had the good fortune to study with many influential Yogis and then immediately went on to complete a rigorous Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in New York in 2008. In mid-2009 J’anaki returned to South Africa and continues to further her training under an esteemed Master of the Satyananda Yoga tradition.

    Although still teaching classical Hatha Yoga, J’anaki was inspired by her own Pregnancy Yoga classes undertaken in Ireland  (through www.sitaram.org)  to begin teaching prenatal yoga in South Africa in 2010.

    Now, while pregnancy yoga is still a major focus for J’anaki, Yoga Mama aims to become a hub for wom(b)en in all stages of life; offering yoga, energy work, meditation, retreats and a community women to connect with and support each other
