About Indie Yoga
Indie Yoga was founded by Kerry Weavind in 2002 under the name Haum of Yoga, and took real shape in 2004 at 3 Quartz Rd, Witkoppen X3 Fourways . The studio epitomizes everything that is about independence from habits, crutches, excuses, perceptions, belief systems that hold you back or down….allowing your Spirit to fly!
In Fourways, the studio is designed as a one-stop relax and rejuvenation retreat that is close to your home, in an ambient setting in a very quiet neighborhood. The most tranquil space in Joburg, as you step into our center, you feel like you are suddenly transported out of town. It is an opportunity to get out of commercial living and into Being, if just for a short time.
Indie Yoga Fourways includes:
The Yoga – local and international teachers, workshops, retreats – infusion of knowledge from everywhere
The Shop – clothes, books, and what you might need for yoga, without becoming a consumerist temptation as yoga is about withdrawing from these kinds of distractions and not over-consuming.
The Space – an opportunity to host your workshop/corporate event at a sanctuary in the city
The therapists – different modalities.
Yogi Tea Shop – an opportunity to sit with fellow yogis and have a cup of tea
Kerry has created a tea room environment that is a very informal place of community – for mothers waiting while their children are in Kiddies Yoga, or for yogis to enjoy the company of like-minded people before or after a class. The Shop provides access to highly recommended yoga books and other products to take your yoga home.
Indie Yoga offers many different styles of yoga with different teachers so you can explore the possibilities and find your own style. The schedule is diverse to ensure classes fit into most anyone’s lifestyle.
We offer Sivananda Style yoga and Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, Indie Yoga, vinyasa yoga, Jivamukti, Forrest yoga. We are the pioneering yoga studio insofar as bringing the philosophy of yoga to life, on the mat and off!
Each teacher brings with them a background of their personal history and experience and passion and so students have a chance to explore yoga through many different experiences!
