Amanda van Niekerk lives in Johannesburg, South Africa, having lived previously in Cape Town for ten years. She was born in West Sussex, England, and arrived on these sunny shores as a four year old. Up till a few years back she was a full-time yoga and pilates teacher from the small sunny studio of her previous home. These days her focus is on ‘keeping it simple’ and helping to raise the garden and renovate the home that she shares with her husband and cat. She is inspired to blog about matters of health, living simply, truth-seeking, her love and concern for the natural world, and the many incredible and creative individuals who have in one way or another, helped to make this world a better place.
