Born 1979 in Germany, near Frankfurt am Main – living over the past few years in Mainz am Rhein, Germany –together with Horses and in Nature.
Since October 2017 I have been living on beautiful Ibiza.
I completed my 200 hr Vinyasa- Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 with Sybille Schlegel and Andreas Ruhula at the Balance Yoga in Mainz, Germany.
I have been doing yoga for over ten years, coming from a dance background during my childhood.
I was a Student of Jivamukti Yoga Teachers in Germany and I love the dynamic Classes. I am also always going back to the practise of Hatha Flow and Yin Yoga.
I am inspired by Mark Whitwell. From “Heart of Yoga“. https://www.heartofyoga.com/
I do Workshops with;
Schalk Viljoen from Germany- my Jivamukti Teacher.
Meghan Currie, Brain Kest(USA), Rocket Yoga with Jeffrey Cohen, Jivamukti Yoga with Petros Hafenrichter from Munic, Hatha Flow and Dancing by Natalia Mariel Gomez from Argentina, Ximenia Gutierres, Alexandra Harfield, Anna Wirges from Mainz Germany, Nina Souza from Germany, Nadine Stalpes from Germany, the German Team of Acro Yoga.
All of whom inspire me and my Yoga Way…
Jemma’s passion for movement began in early childhood with a love for ballet, gymnastics and the creative arts. Yoga has supported her career as a performer throughout adult life keeping her supple and strong both physically and mentally. Jemma see’s Yoga as an ancient science and firmly believes that daily Asana practice can fix many physical ailments. Her classes are heavily focused on the union of the breath with movement creating that beautiful ‘flow’. When a student masters this, the Asana’s become like a moving meditation and that is when transformation begins both physically, mentally and so spiritually. These positive changes in attitude towards life, makes Yogis the happiest people to walk the Earth. Jemma’s favorite quote is ‘practice and all is coming’, sometimes we all need a little guidance in life but often do not know where to turn or which path to follow. Yoga can help us to just breathe, let go and surrender, then like magic all the parts just fall into place and everything comes together. Mind, Body and Soul in union just like the nature of this beautiful planet we call home, everything is connected and when we know this we find peace.
Jemma trained in Ashtanga with the famous Vijay Amar, known for his infectious personality and strict teaching style. She has since shared her knowledge of Yoga all over the globe; teaching teachers at the Universal Yoga Centre in Goa, Vikasa Yoga Center in Thailand, ceremonial retreats, festivals and private classes in London and across Europe. She continues to learn and develop her teaching style through the many unique students she has had the pleasure to work with. Her classes are dynamic but slow enough to allow for correct alignment and introspection. Suitable for all levels, props, assists and adaptations for every body! Jemma likes to take the competitiveness away from the yoga studio ‘its your Yoga so don’t be comparing it to anyone else’s, strive only to be a better version of you!’
Lindsay willbe teaching a mixed level class ~ Villa Roca & Pagoda Garden ~ 27th May - 8th June 2018
Lindsay is a devoted yogini, teacher and lover of life, known for her reassuring authenticity and emotional depth. Practicing yoga from an early age, she went on to merge her passion for yoga and healing through earning her MA degree in Holistic Health. She has now spent many years teaching people to slow down and to become present, empowering her students to look within themselves to find the wisdom that they seek. Her home base is on Maui, Hawaii, where she weaves the gentle beauty of the island around her into daily life, where the warm winds, waterfalls and ocean constantly reflect the nature of embodied presence.
Lindsay recieved her first yoga alliance teacher training certification in 2004 at Yoga On Main in Philadelphia. Continuing her training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, she completed a comprehensive 650-hour program, integrating somatic psychology with key principles of yoga.
More recently, Lindsay has continued her studies of yoga with her teacher, Tias Little, through Prajna Yoga School, completing a 500-hour yoga teaching certification . Rooted in Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga, as well as Buddhist meditation, Prajna yoga classes weavetogether mindfulness of breath, heart and mind through intelligent sequencing, alignment and the wisdom traditions.
With much gratitude and lightheartedness, Lindsay’s classes integrate a blend of all of her training into a vinyasa style class suited for all levels. With warmth and compassion,
she provides a supportive atmosphere that holds space for insight and integration to naturally occur, offering a contemplative, deep and breath centered practice.
I teach traditional and peaceful Hatha Yoga. Also a fluid Vinyasa Yoga and Restorative Yoga. These styles of Yoga practice are the asanas (postures) variations. In my teaching you can find a full dedication, of breathwork (breathing techniques), meditation, chanting and correction alignment.
Apart of dedicate my clases to builds strength and create flexibility, my teaching goes beyond intelligent alignment; moving any willing student to an introspective, holistic experience that explores the chakras and cultivates mind-body awareness.
I´ve been teaching for the last past year in Costa Rica, Argentina, Barcelona, and now in Ibiza where I am based.
Trained by Passion Yoga School in Costa Rica, certified by Yoga Alliance in Hatha Yoga 200h, it has transformed me completely, a team of Masters have taught me the path of Light, the yoga´s ancestral wisdom and a new vision of strength and flexibility to spread around.
I complement my studies with countless hours of reading in Ayurvedic Nutrition, medicinal plants and Holistic alternative therapies for a balanced and natural healthy life.
Classes can be in English or Spanish.
I am also available for SUP Yoga Sessions in the Sea at Benirras from April onwards
Teaching a mixed level class at Villa Roca and Pagoda Garden 4th - 18th May Also 29th July - 24th August.
I am passionate about the health benefits that Yoga has brought to my life, on and off the mat, and feel a deep sense of gratitude that I get to now share this.
Having been trained with a background in performance, movement and dance, I have always enjoyed the physical and viewed the body as a wonderful tool for expression.
Dabbling in various styles of Yoga over the last 10ish years from Bikram to Ashtanga, it was only when I discovered Vinyasa Flow whilst in Thailand that I immediately was drawn to the creative sequencing and sense of grounding and inner peace it gave me.
That is when my own practice deepened and I made the the life changing decision to train as a Yoga Teacher which was partly in Spain and in London.
My 200 hr TT was with FLY Frog Lotus, which has given me the solid tools to teach creative, intelligent flow style Classes for all levels, with an emphasis on alignment and safety in the postures.
Your week with me will cover
Daily Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Key Pranayama Techniques
Accompanied by a great playlist, a sense of fun, & lightness.
The Journey is the destination
Federica will be teaching a mixed level class at Villa Roca / Pagoda Garden 1st - 13th July and the 9th - 21st Sept.
I first experienced yoga three years ago. At first, I was just curious and thought I could use it to complement my fitness routine (gym and pole dancing) – I saw it as nothing more than a series of postures and stretching exercises, which could help me develop strength and flexibility and increase muscular length. Because my initial approach was mainly physical, I chose to practice Ashtanga, which I found dynamic and engaging.
The more I practiced, the more I realized that yoga is something else. I learned the importance of breathing, understood the connection between breathing and movement, and discovered that practicing yoga opens our energetic channels as well as our minds, helping us to reach higher levels of consciousness. Physical exercise is just a way in which we access our spiritual dimension.
After practicing for two years, I decided to deepen my knowledge of Ashtanga by spending one month in Goa, India, to study and practice in a yoga school. My training included philosophy, anatomy, alignment, pranayama and meditation techniques. At the end of my month in India, I received the Yoga Alliance 200-hour certificate, which allows me to teach. Following my experience in Goa, yoga has become more than a physical practice for me. It’s become a state of mind, a way of living and interacting with the world.
Even though when I am on my own I practice Ashtanga, which gives me discipline and helps me to stay focused, I usually teach Dynamic Vinyasa flow classes (influenced by Ashtanga). I like Vinyasa Flow because it gives me the opportunity to use my creativity and focus on specific parts of the body.
The goal of my yoga classes is to guide people towards a healthy lifestyle, mental peace and a deeper level of physical fitness. It’s all about developing the body-mind-spirit awareness.
I am based in Milan, Italy, where I teach individuals and groups at both beginner and intermediate levels. For each of my classes, I plan and design integrated and balanced lessons that take into account my students’ experience, physical ability and specific requests. Of fundamental importance is assisting them in postures, helping to find their perfect pose, always keeping their bodies safe during the practice.
Emily will be teaching for 2 weeks in 2018 dates to be confirmed.
I first experienced yoga as a spontaneous decision to find a lovely, calm, stretching based class that would work alongside my ballet career and at the point nothing else. What I quickly discovered however, was that yoga brings so much more than a physical practice. I began to notice the open and loving community that showed itself to me and how I was being cherished physically, emotionally and mentally in a very accepting and uncompetitive environment, something that felt completely new to me coming from years in the high demands of a young dancers career. After only a few introductions to this sacred practice, my journey with yoga began.
Teaching a mixed level ~ September 2018 at Villa Roca and Pagoda Garden
To me, Yoga is a philosophy, a way of life and also a healing method for
body, mind and soul.
I want to offer my students a way to strengthen their bodies, calm their
minds and create healing from within. I teach beginning, intermediate and
My life has brought me to Yoga eight years ago.
Apart from an anatomical focus and correct alignment in the asanas,
becoming more aware and existing in this world with an open heart is what
is important to me. I teach Yoga to communicate awareness and love, instead
of fear. Meditation and mindfulness - instead of hurry and greed.
I understand Yoga in the classic sense oft he Sutras as the interaction of all
the eight limbs and have been studying the yogic literature for a long time
now. I have been teaching Yoga in Milan, India and California.
Recently, I have completed the advanced 500 hours teacher training in
beautiful Agonda, India, where I could further deepen my teaching
experience in terms of anatomical focuses and connect to the great
spirituality of India.
My teaching styles reach from Vinyasa Flow to Low Flow and Yin. I am
happy to lead workshops both on condition based yoga, teach specific targetgroups and teach on philosophical and spiritual topics.
Teaching in 2018 a Mid July for 2 weeks
Rebecca Hannah Bio
Rebecca is the Creator of Urban Love Warrior Yoga, Co-creator of Inspirer Yoga for teens and top teacher and trainer for Yogic Arts, KiDo Kids Yoga and Teach Yoga London. The styles of yoga she teaches include Yogic Arts, Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Partner Yoga, yoga for children and teenagers and yoga and mindfulness for Special Needs and Mental Health. She is also trained in Calisthenics and natural body movement which she integrates into her teaching.
Coming from a performance background Rebecca initially trained as a physical theatre performer and director in Circus, Commedia Dell'arte and Mime. These mediums have had a big influence on her yoga style which integrates the core strength and flexibility drills of circus alongside the precession and postural awareness of mime. Her training in mime and clowning has had a big impact on her philosophy to teaching which is about encouraging students to be present and find a sense of play creativity in their practice moving away from the mat at times and exploring their relationship with the space through partner work, wall work, floor sliding and the use of props e.g. blocks and straps. Through this she aims to help strengthen, align and balance the body whilst challenging students to question how the way they interact physically with the space and people around them has a direct impact on their posture, breathe, thoughts, emotions and relationships with both themselves and others.
Rebecca’s style and philosophy is also heavily influenced by her passion for community work and creating opportunities for the vulnerable and at risk to build their confidence, find their expression and make a positive difference to their lives. She set up the first Community Yoga studio in her City Urban Love Warrior and was the first practitioner in the country to set up and deliver a Special Needs Yoga Festival for young people and adults with learning difficulties. Having worked as a College Lecturer for the past six years Rebecca is experienced in creating and delivering yoga and mindfulness programmes into the Education System. She has also created and delivered programmes and retreats for the Mental Health Service working with young people and adults with a range of different barriers including homelessness, poverty and abuse.
Rebecca teaches trainings, festivals, retreats and workshops all across Europe, Asia and America and is the lead assistant and co-teacher for Master Duncan Wong. Alongside her teaching experience Rebecca is a performer, writer, life coach and motivational speaker and has represented companies including Jade Yoga (America), Fujitsu (Japan), Elephant Journal (America) and the BBC and Arts Council (UK).
