There’s been much excitement for our staff at the Isa Carstens® Academy in Stellenbosch as Nikki Loots has started teaching them yoga and meditation every Friday before work.

“It is taking the time to disconnect from their stressful, demanding lives and reconnect with themselves again. It’s a good way to set the tone for the rest of the day!” says Nikki. And it’s all part of our move into wellness.
