Annie is the founder of Cape Town Retreats and runs holistic Yoga and detoxification retreats in South Africa near Cape Town.

Annie has over 20 years experience with cleansing practices both through diet and various yogic cleansing techniques.  After experimenting personally with fasting, detoxification and working with food as medicine she shares what she has learned.  She is passionate about her work and is particularly interested in the area of self development though caring for oneself and others.  She believes strongly that when we care for ourselves, our lifestyle automatically improves.  

Annie teaches Traditional Indian Yoga, a synthesis of Ashtanga

Yoga and Hatha Yoga, based on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (Ashtanga) and Hatha Yoga Pradipika.  She studied in India at Yoga Vidya Gurukul (ashram) under Rishi Dharmajyoti.   Annie teaches yoga as a means to develop consciousness and to make the mind body soul connection. 

To add to the effectiveness of physical Yoga practice, she works with remedial Pilates to strengthen muscles and to correct structural integrity.  She studied under Susan Arena Pepper, former ballerina based in Geneva Switzerland, who developed the Swiss Body Pilates method, and Master teacher Jennifer Paynter who has a deep knowledge of anatomy and functionality of the body.

The host Annie was warm, compassionate, loving nature, who was ever attentive to each of the guests individual needs. Her intuitive, deep approach to meditation (yoga and Pilates and tailoring each of the sessions to suit everyone’s level and individual process. Her calming, loving energy was apparent in everything she graced her presence and time in. For me, Annie made the whole experience deeply spiritual and energizing. The classes were accommodating for all levels, which was important for me given my lack of experience and patience with myself in this area. Overall, the flow and energy of the week was beyond my expectation. The whole experience for me was totally rejuvenating and I am still breathing and smiling on the aftermath. I feel truly privileged to have been apart of this experience and I believe we were all meant to meet and share this experience.
