Estie Botha

Yoga Student / Yoga Teacher

I am a Yoga teacher and nature-lover, currently living in Cape Town, South Africa. I have always had a passion for exploration, and have been traveling in South Africa and the world since 2009. Curiosity led me to yoga, and the explorer turned inwards.


My yoga journey started in South Korea in 2012, when I joined a yoga studio and met a phenomenal teacher who led me to the practice of yoga. Yu Jin and I formed a bond despite the language barrier, and the 10AM tea and yoga at Jin Yoga in Gunsan became my home.


In 2013, I completed a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh, India. Throughout the years following, I continued to develop my own practice, attended various workshops and led yoga classes in small groups in the countries I lived in. Yoga became an integral part of my life.


I moved back to South Korea in 2016 to further my Yoga studies at Ayurveda Yoga Academy in Daegu. I joined the Healing Academy’s Leadership program and through studying with the teachers, I got a much deeper understanding of Yoga. I am currently attending their Advanced Teacher Training Course through distance learning.


I now lead yoga sessions in and around Cape Town, South Africa, and online. 


I facilitate Yoga classes in a traditional style, following the practices of Hatha yoga. The class might feel gentle or strong, depending on each individual on the day. All levels are welcome. Yoga really is for everyone.


As a student of Yoga, my classes follow the style and philosophy of my teachers; it is not only about technique, but about meditation and giving love. We accept anything that will help us transform.
