Winner of the Sentiens mat from our Spring Challenge

I announced a while back that the winner of our Spring challenge is Skye Van Der Walt, and tonight I was thrilled to – very belatedly – present him with his well-deserved prize. He chose the ‘Wanderer in Skyline’ design which is wonderfully fitting given his name! 

Skye, me and his wonderful mum, Meryl

It’s been an absolute joy to watch Skye’s practice blossom over the past year. He has always inspired me with his commitment to his practice and the way in which he has discovered and embraced the benefits of this ancient practice at a relatively young age (Skye is currently writing his matric exams at Bridgehouse) and it’s as if over the last number of months, he’s just crossed a threshold of some sort and has taken his practice to a whole new level – popping up into arm balances, and accessing a whole world of asana that weren’t in his practice a year ago. 

We hope that your stunning mat serves as inspiration in your practice moving forward and that your exams go extremely well! There’s no doubt that the self discipline, breath control and mindfulness you’ve developed on your mat will see you through. 

Namaste, Skye. 

(With a special mention to mum Meryl who leads by example and has passed her love for the practice on to her son. The gift that will keep on giving for a lifetime. Respect, Meryl)
