Charlize Tomaselli - Founder and Owner
I’m Charlize Tomaselli, founder and owner of Monsoon Yoga, Pilates and Wellness.
I was introduced to yoga while living in Thailand. I did my first Yoga Teacher Training in the Himalaya's in India in the Ashtanga style. I did my second YTT in Bangkok Thailand in Vinyasa. I returned to South Africa where I completed my New York Style Pilates Training and opened my first Yoga studio in Norwood. After relocating to Durban I added an Advanced HathaYTT to my credentials and opened my second studio in Westville. In between I have gained certifications in Pre and Post Natal yoga, Aerial Yoga, Mindfullness and Kids Yoga.
After having three children I decided to close my studio and focus on teaching rather than the hours and hours of admin that come with running a studio. I continue to teach yoga, pilates and mindfulness at various venues and studios around Durban. I have a strong focus on Corporate Wellness and am involved in many wellness programmes on an ongoing basis at several companies in Durban.
In addition to the weekly class schedule I also teach Workshops, Teacher Trainings and Retreats to keep myself on my toes and find an excuse to constantly study!
