About Ulrike

Get in TouchClass Info


Ulrike strongly believes in the healing and transformative power of Ashtanga Yoga. She is living proof that daily practice works. Ulrike has practised according to the exact Ashtanga method since 2002.

Ulrike had her own yoga school (shala), Ashtanga Yoga Cape Town (AYCT), from 2006 to 2018 where she taught the traditional Ashtanga method as it was directly taught to her by Sharath R. Jois, grandson of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. After an 18-month long sabbatical, Ulrike teamed up with Yogazone where she currently teaches Ashtanga.

One of the quotes which resonate with her is by Senior Ashtanga teacher, Tim Miller: “My goal as a teacher is to inspire a passion for the practice. The practice itself, done consistently and accurately, is the real teacher.”

Ulrike lives in Cape Town with her husband, four children and Ted, her Mini Wire-haired Dachshund and sidekick in the yoga room.
