14 years experience



​​Kirstin has been practicing yoga for 12 years and completed her YTTC in 2017 with Caroline Pajewski in Namibia. She has since taught people from all across the board including studio groups, mental hospitals, privates, tourists, corporates and professional athletes as well as her own massage clients.

Born in South Africa, she grew up in Namibia and has been practicing gymnastics competitively since the age of 4. After years of dancing and taking part in numerous sports, as well as finishing her degree in Film (Motion Picture Medium) in Cape Town, yoga has been the one consistent practice that never left her since she started at the age of 19.

She has traveled to Bali where she trained in Qigong and finished a Vipassana meditation retreat which marked one of many spiritual awakenings. She’s lived in Koh Phangan for 3 magical years and is grateful and happy to know that her time at One Yoga is part of an incredible journey that has only just begun. 

“It is witnessing the transformation of my students and of myself that keeps me going back to the beautiful practice of yoga.” – Kirstin
