My journey with Yoga started in 2008, attending Asana focused classes to unwind and experience something new, in my hometown, Barcelona. Now that I think about it, I was probably looking for some answers back then without knowing it yet.
Although I soon noticed the physical benefits in my body, I realised that this was also re-shaping me in a more subtle, intangible way. It was a transitional time for me for various reasons and I felt settled and found refuge in the practice. Even though I know now that the ancient Yoga teachings go much deeper than Asana, that was the door I had to enter to start doing the inner work and get a closer look of my lights and shadows.
My Yoga teachings follow those of Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar.
This approach is suited to adapt to the needs of any individual or group context, from the healthiest and most athletic student, to a gentle therapeutic practice for students with health issues, those who live with trauma or chronic conditions.
This methodology provides an experiential application of the Yoga philosophy through Asana and Pranayama, unfolding in a multi-layered, developmental practice that prioritises the breath as a primary tool to influence our emotional, mental, energetic and physical states.
“Some disturbances will respond to Āsana. Some of the more resistant, to Prāṇāyāma.” – T Krishnamacharya
Since I started teaching my relationship with Yoga has evolved in different ways, being influenced by certain teachers I find inspiring, but I keep trusting and coming back to the roots that Krishnamacharya tradition has given me and I am forever grateful to my teachers for brightening my path. I hope I can brighten someone else’s in return.
Honesty, respect, compassion and unconditional positive regard are humanist and yogic values that I try to reflect in my classes, also in the way I live my life and my relationships.
I teach independently, mostly private classes and I am also honoured to be part of “Edinburgh Community Yoga Outreach” team, working on helping to make Yoga accessible to everyone, no matter their economic status or their physical/mental health state.
