Stephanie found yoga in her late teens and found it a great stretch and deeply relaxing. She continued to enjoy a wide range of yoga styles over the years. And it was quite a few years later, when she really discovered yoga can help manage stress, be a great help through difficult times and a healing practice. This is when she realised she needed to be a teacher and Sunshine Yogini was born on her mission for the soul to India. Sunshine Yogini teaches from the heart and loves seeing the beautiful effect yoga has on people from all ages and backgrounds.
Stephanie's Mum, an artist & cook, originally from Suriname in South America and a Child of the World, blessed by having lived in many beautiful countries, such as The Netherlands, Scotland, UAE and Madagascar. Ingrid's food & paintings are very much influenced by the cultures, people and beauty discovered throughout her travels. Food & Art make a wonderful combination and she can't wait to share her colourful menu with you.
The menu is vegetarian and colourful. The more colourful your plate, the more nutrients you are treating yourself to.

“Thank you for working so hard to give us all such a wonderful weekend. I loved every moment, from your beautiful smile to welcome us, your delicious juices, fabulous yoga sessions, amazing massage (thanks so much to Alanna!) and all that fantastic sunshine. The best part for me was being able to forget about all the stresses of life and just enjoy the moment with my new yoga family, not worrying about the time or having to get dinner ready!!! Loving the scrub and all my other goodies and feeling energised and determined to carry on with the healthy eating.” Deborah Reid
