Phindile Dhlamini-Motshegwa, RYT 200, is an avid yoga practitioner with over a decade of practice and experience. Her area of interest primarily revolves around the yoga eco-system and the diverse communities that make up the industry. She is exploring her curiosity for understanding the application of enterprise governance principles and international best practice—in different types of organizations, across different sectors. She is a supporter of moving towards professionalizing the yoga industry—as a part of the larger health sector—in order to preserve the integrity of teaching the practice. Phindile is currently focusing on producing and contributing to programs and projects that offer yoga in underrepresented spaces, with people who wouldn’t ordinary have access.
Yoga appeals to Phindile because of its unique ability to be both exclusive and inclusive at the same time: exclusive, as it is meant to be a time to selfishly connect; and inclusive, in that it is for all ages, genders, sizes, and ethnicities. She firmly believes that yoga can, and should, be accessed by anyone, anywhere. Phindile feels compelled to share herself through this work, where she is dedicated to teaching and instilling a sense of pride and dignity to those who may be uninspired or feeling depleted.
Phindile practices Hatha, Vinyasa, Bikram, and Kemetic yoga, which influence her eclectic teaching style. She always maintains a pursuit of knowledge and information in the ancient tradition of mindfulness, in a quest towards continuous self-improvement. She is dedicated to living a life full of love, passion, and purpose—attributes she hopes will resonate with all who meet her on her path. Phindile feels blessed and privileged to be able to offer this work as her gift to the world.
