Hatha and Yin Yoga Teacher

In 2004 I fell in love with yoga on the beautiful island of Bali. Working a hectic job in tourism I was looking for more peace of mind. One day I asked my Balinese colleague how he managed to always stay calm and friendly. “You do the same work as I do, you deal with similar problems, you must feel the same stress. What is your secret?” He showed me his bright smile and answered: “I do yoga and meditation”.

A couple of years later, yoga became part of my life. However, I felt an inner change once I added meditation to my daily practice of physical exercises (asanas). I became more connected to myself and with that with the world around me. Bit by bit I experienced more calmness within myself, I became a happier person!

After several years of practice I felt the desire to share yoga with others and I decided to go to India to become a certified teacher.

In October 2013 I followed the 200 hours Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in India. In 2017 I got myself specialized in Yin Yoga. In 2019 I felt I was ready for the next step and went back to India to do the 300 hours Advanced Yoga Teacher Training, which I successfully completed. Besides I am also certified in ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, 2018) and Anxiety Coaching (2019).

With Granada Spirit I am able to do what I love most: bring yoga and meditation to others so they are able to follow their own path towards a happy, healthy and more balanced life.

The classes are a mixture of asanas (yoga postures), breathing-, and relaxation exercises and meditation.
Beginners and experienced yoga practitioners alike are very welcome on my yoga mats.

Mi objetivo es compartir el yoga y la meditación con otras personas de forma que ellos sean capaces de seguir su propio camino hacia una vida más equilibrada y feliz. Mis clases son una mezcla de asanas (posturas de yoga), estiramientos y ejercicios de respiración y meditación. Los principiantes, así como las personas más avanzadas en la práctica del yoga, son bienvenidos a Granada Spirit.
