Instructors

Roald
Vinyasa yoga teacher
Qualification – 200 hour Vinyasa yoga at Living Yoga.

What motivates me – I’ve always been a very active person and yoga teaches you to connect your body, breath and mind.

My Yoga style – Meditation, finding joy and steadiness in every pose.

Lee
Budokon yoga teacher
Lee teaches yoga and movement after completing a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course (2015) and 500 hour Budokon Mixed Movement Arts Intensive course (2017). He teaches a range of practices including Budokon, Vinyasa, Yin, and Restorative, with the belief that a variety of movement practices are essential for the mind, body and soul and are required to achieve a balance of strength, agility, and compassion.

Lee maintains that movement practice is a pathway into the subconscious, because our movements are a reflection of our mind. This stems from the idea that if we are able to observe our movements, we will start observing our thoughts. Only once these patterns are acknowledged, can we use our practice to change them into new and healthy patterns.

If you are seeking a challenge, a change, or a different perspective, join Lee for a class which aims to open the body and mind. Discover new patterns and seek to know what you don’t know.

Sajiv
Vinyasa yoga teacher

In 2015 Sajiv completed a Vinyasa yoga teacher training facilitated by Living Yoga and immediately took the opportunity to teach.

He draws inspiration from ancient yogic texts, dance, music and life in general to teach classes that require not only strength and focus, but also bring a very playful element to your practise.  His classes are mentally and physically uplifting and challenging as he loves doing backbends, arm balances and being upside down in inversions to look at things from a different perspective.

Carly
Vinyasa yoga teacher
Qualification – 200 hour Vinyasa yoga at Living Yoga.

What motivates me – Deepening the understanding of oneself by connecting mind and body to create harmony.

My Yoga style – I believe in creating harmony in all aspects of our lives. I try create balance in my classes, flowing through both easy and challenging poses creating a space for you to challenge yourself and then having a space to relax and be at ease. Exploring our mind and body expect a little meditation and breath control in the mix.

Kevin
Vinyasa yoga teacher
Qualification – After doing yoga on and off for many years, in 2015 I decided to take the plunge and do my Yoga certification with Tri-focus.

What motivates me – I am an extremely curious person with an ever-expanding sense of wonder. I believe in maintaining a healthy body mind and spirit. Yoga has helped me in many areas of life and I would like to be able to share that with others.

My Yoga style – yin and yang ranging from long deep holds to vigorous dynamic flows.

James
Fundamental yoga teacher
Qualification – 4 year Iyengar Introductory Certificate (2017), Jivamukti Teacher Certification (2011), Hatha Teacher Certification (2006)

What motivates me – My love for teaching and the hope of waking up

My yoga style – I’ve always tried to emphasise getting clear on the basics to create a strong foundation. This means focusing on the underlying principles of yoga so that people can understand the reasons behind the practice. My classes are workshop based with a lot of detail in the instruction. I believe if you get the basics right, the fancy stuff will sort itself out. And meditation: don’t forget the meditation part 🙂

Susanna
Vinyasa/Yin yoga teacher
There are so many guides – yogis and non-yogis – out there that have hepled shape me and still shape me as a Yoga Guide.

After teaching for 9 years I can say with certainty that aspects of this practice and the way one guides people through it, change; all – the – time!

One of the most profound things that I have learnt is to stop straining and pushing and to instead practise EASE. Finding ways in your yoga practice to move and breathe and feel what is really going on while you are practising … and then understanding and experiencing what it means to move with ease IN YOUR OWN BODY. This inevitably will flow over into the rest of your life.

So you come to a class, and together we’ll figure out what works for you, and where you can let go a bit … or a whole lot!

It’s a symbioses, where we all benefit from practising ease.

Dagmar
Pilates Teacher
Dagmar Delmarco is a certified BASI Comprehensive Pilates Trainer (Body Arts and Science International).

Her classes focus on moving with awareness so as to improve posture, spine flexibility and muscle strength.

A priceless gift.
