My immersion into yoga and spirituality began in 2011 whilst travelling in India. I was cracked open (spiritually) at a meditation centre and never looked back. I was living in Dubai at that time, just as the first Yogafest events took place, it was here I met my first influential yoga teachers and became part of the sound and energy healing communities. Initially practising Ashtanga and Bikram until I later fell in love with Vinyasa Flow.
I loved the sense of community, the empowering feeling of unity with the mind, body and spirit after years of not taking good care of myself. Since then, I attended numerous Yoga and meditation retreats, deepened my spiritual understanding with Vipassana, Breathwork and plant medicine. I became a Reiki practitioner, trained in sound healing working mostly with Tibetan bowls and Gongs.
When I moved to Spain, I qualified as a Peter Hess Sound Massage therapist and found Amanda’s yoga studio. I wanted to deepen my practice and understanding of the physical body with Yoga Teacher Training. Studying and training with Amanda showed me the importance of good alignment and biomechanics. I realized that Yoga Teacher Training was the missing component that tied all my experiences together.
The path of learning and understanding is infinite. As students and teachers of Yoga, it offers us the space to know ourselves better, to honour and respect our bodies, to enrich our experience and deepen our connection with the outside world.
