Anjali Welcomes You!

Ordained Minister, Marriage Officer, Yoga Instructor and Personal Mentor.

About Me

I am Dr Rev Marietjie Venter,

a non-denominational ordained minister and marriage officer, licensed to legally conduct civil, as well as civil union (same sex) marriages, christenings and memorials. Other hats I am wearing are that of public speaker and academic, yoga instructor and personal mentor.



Weddings - Anjali


Separate lives, individual memories, desires and hopes all come together in the name of Love. Couples embark upon a journey of mutual respect and honor, expressing the highest and the best that they know.

Christenings - Anjali


Also referred to as a Naming, Welcoming or Special Blessing ceremony, it provides a wonderful opportunity to welcome a soul to its existence on earth, as well as bestowing upon it all the blessings for its life’s journey.

Memorials - Anjali


This can be a truly uplifting ceremony – a celebration of one’s ultimate graduation into higher realms. It is such a privilege for loved ones to come together to celebrate the unique life of the deceased. To honor a new beginning and to wish them well in this adventure.


Yoga Classes

I am the principal of The ANJALI SCHOOL OF YOGA – South Africa and enjoy an association with Gitananda Yoga. Our school attempts to fulfill the requirements of GITANANDA YOGA (Classical Rishiculture Ashtanga Yoga), a synthesis of classical yoga concepts with modern scientific knowledge.

Thank you for trusting me with your journey. I can be of assistance with the following:

  • healing past hurts

  • creating a happy, healthy and abundant life

What People Are Saying

“A thousand thank you’s for making our day so special. We have had a most gorgeous time over these past few days. Both our families and every friend that attended has all asked where I found you. You were inspirational and it was a great joy to have you present.”

Ian & Keith

My sincere appreciation for being the Light in my life. I remember with fondness the first yoga class at Elandor, which Liza invited me to. That was the beginning of a long teacher/student relationship. I have learnt so much from you during the years. Always introducing new concepts and techniques to stretch our minds and focus our awareness.


It’s about a month ago we had the memorial service for my mom. It is my conviction that it was such a memorable session due to your love and light, your lightness in being embedded in a solid grounded base ( I am searching for the translation of gegrond, geaard) and the special way you think and talk about processes of farewell.
