Maria, who grew up in India, Japan and Thailand will take you on a journey in time, revealing the secrets of yoga and ayurveda in a magical way. She will reveal the importance of correct alignment, together with the skills of how to create a correct sequencing. Pranayama will be an essential part of her teaching.
Maria has dwelt in different lineages of yoga (Sivavananda, Ashtanga, Hatha, Bhakti, Prana Yoga, Vinyasa, Yin yoga, Therapeutics) throughout her journey. Her experiential approach brought her to the realization that Yoga is a gift and a chance for each individual to rediscover vitality and inner joy.
She is a highly qualified, experienced, and certified yoga teacher. This course will cover all aspects of traditional, holistic, authentic yoga. It will be taught according to the ancient scriptures and coupled with modern medical and scientific explanations.
Ariel embraces the power of yoga to heal and transform the body and to help heighten human consciousness and create a radiant life. Known for her cheerful, engaging and nurturing personality, she approaches her students with authenticity and humor. Her creativity and ability to pay attention to details make for excellent verbal cues and allows her to help students reach their full potential and work around constraints. Her intention is to inspire others to use yoga as a space to nurture mind, body and spirit.
Ariel’s sense of adventure and eagerness for growth has led her to many hours of training, immersions, and the completion of her 500hr Yoga Teacher Training at Radiantly Alive Yoga in Ubud, Bali. Over the course of her trainings, she had the privilege to learn from various teachers such as Daniel Aaron, Alana Kaivalya, Govinda Kai, Edward Clark, Damien De Bastier, Nicki Doane, Chris Kummer, and Heather Bonker.
To complement a more active yang yoga practice, Ariel completed another 200hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with excellent guidance from Jo Phee and Joe Barnett.
Lidia Theodoridis or Bhakti Shakti as her yogi name is, practises yoga for the last 17 years. Her career has started in India in the holy town of Vrindavan where she lived in a yoga ashram for several years and in Bengal as well. Her main activities are directed to yoga retreats and tours to India and South America where she meet people with the ancient cultures and spirituality of the local indigenous tribes. For many years she has practised brahmacharya, living in the different yoga ashrams and has started a yoga ashram in Bulgaria and Sweden. Later she specialized in art therapy and psychology as part of the yogic development and expanding of consciousness bringing the practice into the area of further realizations into more internal practices.
Alexandra, an Austrian / Spanish ostheopath, whose passion is yoga will teach us the details of anatomy and correct alignment, so important in a correct practice. She has been teaching in Ashram Om for some years now. We will have all the tools necessary (presentations, maps, skeletons, models) to learn visually and practically.
Antonio, who grew up in a Buddhist family and meditated since the age of 4 will teach us the techniques of meditation and will share with us some of the philosophy details. His deep understanding and calm nature will inspire us through a true life example – not with words, but through his pure energy.
