Steven is originally from Belgium and came to Africa in 2004 through his job at an international trading company (first in Nigeria and then South Africa). During an extended holiday in India in 2009 he was introduced to different styles and practices of yoga. Upon his return to South Africa he continued to practice yoga regularly and really started to experience its many benefits to stay balanced and healthy while having a busy traveling and work schedule. 

Steven loves the vinyasa flow style of yoga with a good amount of action and intensity in the classes and its always changing sequences depending on the focus and inspiration of the instructor. In 2013 he completed his yoga teacher training, promptly quit his corporate job after 12 years, and started his own company Yoga Works to share the benefits of yoga and mindfulness with lots of people and to organise fun yoga events in and around Jozi (on rooftops, in art galleries, in the park…).

Expect fun and creative sequences focused around a central theme per session, accessible to all levels of yogis who enjoy a bit of intensity. Steven loves inversions and arm balances and always offers lots of opportunities to go upside down or to try out some more challenging poses. Other important elements of his classes include funky playlists, lots of hands-on adjustments and precise instructions for safe alignment. In his Friday Happy Hour Class, you can leave the office behind you and get onto your mat to get your weekend off to the best start. Expect a short but active vinyasa flow session which packs a little punch, including lots of options to go upside down and a funky playlist.
