COURSE FACILITATOR

Fran Siebrits (Sundari Lalita Devi)

 

Sundari Lalita Devi (Fran) has been initiated into the a yoga lineage dating back to the origins of yoga, and has been given the blessing to teach from her Guru in India, at the ashram Yoga Vidya Gurukul. Since her early 20s she has been deepening into a lifestyle of yogic practice, and has been involved in teaching training courses since 2016. She is a member of the Yoga Teacher Fellowship in South Africa, through which she certifies her students for their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, an internationally recognised qualification.

 

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teacher.”
- Pema Chödrön

Fran's instructor beginnings found their roots at Ananda Sanga Educational Institute (ASEI) in Somerset West, where she completed her internationally recognised 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification. She further qualified in Pre- and Post-Natal (Pregnancy) Yoga as well as the healing MYYO Technique through ASEI.

Naturally, this lead to travels and training in India. On separate occasions she trained further in the deeper aspects of the bodymind from inspiring teachers at Palpung Sherabling Monastery (Palampur, Himachal Pradesh) and Yoga Vidya Gurukul Ashram (Nashik, Maharashtra) where she completed her 500Hr Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Yoga Vidya Gurukul. She has also had the honour of meeting His Holiness the Dalai Lama at his residence (Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh).

She has also trained and certified in Budokon Yoga, a strong and powerful practice combining Mixed Martial Arts and yoga movement forms, and Aerology, aerial movement and mindfulness.

She has had the privilege to facilitate and lecture on a number of teacher trainings and courses. However, it is the 'forever the student' attitude that motivates her to continue exploring this life long journey of yoga. Fran's intention is to promote the use of yoga to assist balance and healing.

Her practice, training and teaching style is spiritually based with its roots in Integral and Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. Typically, Integral Yoga classes consist of a carefully selected and intelligently sequenced series of asanas (physical yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and yoga nidra (deep conscious relaxation and visualisation). Vinyasa (flow) is an important aspect of all classes, building up to a main asana and a calming down thereafter.

With the diverse tool-kit she has acquired over the years, she shapes her teaching to best reach her students. Fran believes that anyone who can breathe can practice yoga: it is for everyone!
