gently restoring your body's prana

"Be calm, at peace with yourself and all others. Enter into the supreme state of unity with Me - I who am Truth, Consciousness, and Bliss." Bhagavad Gita
"Inhale and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation and God remains with you. Exhale and you approach God. Hold the exhalation and surrender to God." Tirumala Krishnamacharya

surrender to yoga

Where is conflict when the truth is known, Where is disease when the mind is clear, Where is death when the breath is controlled. Therefore surrender to Yoga. - Yoganjalisaram Tirumala Krishnamacharya

Welcome to Hridaya School of Yoga

Hridaya School of Yoga focuses on bringing the authentic teachings of Yoga to the local and international community. Our School was founded and created by Bettina and Pamela-Francis Stuetz a mother and daughter team, sharing a vision of spreading the Light of Yoga.

We offer a wide variety of Teacher Trainings, Courses and Modules aimed at spreading awareness of the science of Yoga. It is our mission to transmit these teachings with sincerity, humility, authenticity and generosity of spirit. Hridaya School of Yoga is based in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. Our Online Teacher Trainings and Online Courses as well as our Online Modules are certified through Hridaya School of Yoga and internationally accredited with The Yoga Teachers Fellowship of Southern Africa. The YTF (Yoga Teachers Fellowship) is a registered NPO founded by Kaviraj Yogi Mani Finger creator of the Ishta system of Yoga. Our Trainings, Courses, and Modules can be completed from the convenience of your own home anywhere in the world. 

We offer Healing Yoga Nidra sessions, Private Yoga and Personalised Yoga Sadhana (practice) classes at our studio in Mill Hill Bryanston. We aim for balance, wellness and peace, using the gifts of Yoga & Ayurveda to create balance and wellness in both body and mind. In our classes and consultations we teach you how to link the breath with the movement of the asana in order to steady the breath and in turn the mind. When the mind is still we perceive a state of yoga. This is the union of the self with the divine. In this present moment we are already perfect. You will learn how to meditate, how to do pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra, as well as teaching you how to relax your body and mind through yoga-nidra and guided meditations. Come and join us in the celebration of Yoga!
