Viviana will be with us from June to August 2022.
She got graduated in Philosophy, in Barcelona, and after some time, her curiosity to understand the human body in all its layers, brought her to study as well Chinese Traditional Medicine and the Daoist practices which gave her a very precious knowledge of the energetic body and how to harmonize it.
She started practicing Yoga 20 years ago and her path, since then, has been centred in deepening the different aspects of this ancient tradition. She practices Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Vinyasa Krama, and also into meditation. She has been learning with Rolf Naujokat, Dona Holleman and T. K. V. Desikachar among other several teachers.
Since 2007 she has been living for long term periods in India studying as well yoga philosophy, Indian classical music and dance.

She is a certified Trauma Yoga teacher, a Zen practitioner, as well as a Vedic chanting and Yoga Philosophy student. She has attended yoga courses for scoliosis, pranayama and anatomy.

Ilse Van Der Walt
Ilse has been working with us from Nov 2016 to Nov 2018
Ilse, has been trained in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga styles. She is registered with the International Yoga Alliance and completed a 5-month intensive work-study exchange in Ayurveda Yoga Therapy with Janesh Vaidya in Kerala, India in 2016.
Her classes are focused on correct alignment and body awareness.
Ilse has a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences and has explored different kinds of plant medicines, fasting and detox methods. She has a passion for nutrition, healing through food, and healthy lifestyle.
Ilse has been a wonderful person to have around and we all miss her. She moved on to form her family in Peru, in the Sacred Valley of Incas.
This Yoga style was popularized and brought to the West by K. Pattabhi Jois in the 1970s.
It is a rigorous, active, dynamic, energetic, sweaty, physically demanding practice that follows a specific sequence of poses (Asanas) that are linked by flowing movements (Vinyasas).
Every class focus on 4 elements: Banda (contract), Pranayama (breath), Vinyasa (flow), Drishti (focus) and requires synchronization between breath and movements.
Its benefit includes: weight loss, increased strength and flexibility, improved muscular tone and cardiovascular fitness, increased focus and creativity, stress and anxiety relief, lower blood pressure.
Likewise Ashtanga-vinyasa yoga, also Vinyasa flow consists of a traditional series of postures that are linked by flowing movements but unlike the rigorous Ashtanga-Vinyasa style, Vinyasa flow allows to vary the pace between poses and more freedom in building the sequences. As such we make this lesson much less intense than the morning Ashtanga-vinyasa one. The emphases during this class will be on specific postures in order to work on hip opening, back bends and balance.
