This yoga teacher training was created by Pumula Retreat and Inner Wellness Studio to provide students of yoga a tranquil, natural space to learn and practice. The guiding intention of teaching is to present a method that is accessible to people from varying backgrounds. They give special attention to the fundamentals of alignment in asana practice, using props as support to deepen the experience of the postures. Essential to this approach is a mindful progression of Vinyasa, preparing you to unfold harmoniously and intelligently in yoga. To promote balance in the body and mind, they integrate the principles of Restorative postures and breathing, which increase the capacity to truly rest and renew.

Diego Baldi is the founder and lead teacher of Inner Wellness Studio, a holistic wellness practice based in KwaZulu-Natal, specializing in integrative nutrition, yoga, and teacher training. Diego first learned about yoga at the age of 13 when he accompanied his sister to a class one day. Later on she gifted him the book “Light on Yoga” by BKS Iyengar which further inspired him towards more conscious moving and living. Over the last 10+ years he has been practicing, teaching, and studying with people from diverse backgrounds throughout South Africa, Mozambique, and India.
Maria relocated from Puerto Rico to South Africa in 2017. In 2016 she traveled to India with the intention of immersing herself into the study and practice of yoga - after having stumbled into the practice in 2013, when an injury to the tailbone demanded a complete change in lifestyle. In 2016 she completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh and continued with her practice and studies in the south of India, where she began to engage with Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle principles. It was there where her path crossed with Diego’s and she decided to travel to South Africa.
Pumula Retreat is idyllically surrounded by nature, in the lush southern coastline of KwaZulu-Natal.
The culinary team will create delicious and nutritious vegetarian or vegan meals that will support a balanced state of mind and body.
