Alby Glaister

Alby Glaister

VINYASA FLOW YOGA TEACHER
ENGLISH CLASSES

Alby studied at an alternative school in England founded by the Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti. There he started practicing yoga from 13 years old. Yoga was readily available to practice at his school, where he had 1:1 yoga lessons daily.
After practicing for some years, at the age of 16 Alby travelled to India; the birth place of yoga, to deepen his practice. Since then he has returned to India several times, most recently with his partner Laxmi Valls where they completed a Yoga Alliance teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa at the Universal Yoga Centre with Vijay Amar. He studied yoga in Ashrams including Amritapuri and Sivananda and he enrolled on numerous other Yoga courses, including a Hatha Yoga immersion with the world renowned teacher Surinder Singh in Rishikesh.

Alby has taught yoga in England, Italy, Austria, Catalonia and India. He has delved into many branches of both traditional yoga practices and modern adaptations. His practice would best full under Vinyasa, though he also incorporates aspects of classical Hatha and the integrity of Iyengar. He focuses on using yoga as this invaluable tool to return to our essence, the inner peace.

Currently Alby lives in Girona, Catalonia, where he teaches daily classes at Kreative Yoga Girona and offers seasonal retreats in Hotels in Italy, Spain and the UK under his co-founded project Tada Yoga.
Alby gives dynamic classes, offering the opportunity to experience new postures, sensations and states of relaxation. Beyond asana practice, Alby is particularly interested in Pranayama and meditation.
While yoga has rapidly become a huge hype in the West, it has become distorted, and many have lost sight of what yoga really is, and why we do it. Alby is adamant on sharing his practice as an opportunity to connect with our love, our truth. Yoga is not rolling out your mat each day. Yoga is the balance in life, a spiritual practice to connect, to feel the inner source, and the love that we all are.

Sònia Isart

Sònia Isart

HATHA YOGA TEACHER

La manera de ser de la Sònia és una invitació a restar dins nostre en profunditat. El seu estil d‘ensenyament ric i textural, i l’exploració que fa dels paisatges interiors, ens porten a una experiència sensual de tot el que està passant. La Sònia demostra una rara habilitat per fer una autoindagació rigorosa i valenta. La seva ofrena vibra amb una tendra vulnerabilitat.
Amb la voluntat de continuar amb la indagació que els antics yogis proposaven (Ko Ham: Qui soc?), va crear Nomad Yoga el 2011, permetent que els paisatges del món la guiessin en aquest recerca, i la portessin cap a una práctica més viva i intuïtiva.
Dins el marc de llibertat que el Hatha Yoga ofereix, la Sònia proposa una pràctica on l’escolta és l’element guia essencial, treballant en cada moment amb allò que el cos posa a disposició, sense resistència i sense pressió. I és en aquest marc de llibertitat i intuïció que la màgia del yoga succeeix…
Molts son els mestres, però en especial la Sònia se sent deixeble de Quim Altés, Kira Sloane, Ravi Ravindra i Erich Schifmann.

Laura Tàrrega

Laura Tàrrega

WOMEN CIRCLE

Per la Laura la maternitat va ser l‘inici d’un camí de creixement: Quin era el seu lloc com a mare? Com podia acompanyar a les seves filles respectuosament? Què necessitava com a dona? Com podia donar espai a les seves necessitats i a les de les persones del seu voltant?

Arrel d’aquestes inquietuds va formar-se amb Sophia Style, Miranda Gray, Rous Baltrons, Eva Roca, Susanna Arjona i Maria Farriols que la van empoderar i connectar amb la seva ànima i la seva feminitat.

L‘any 2012 es forma com a Moon Mother amb la Miranda Gray, i des de llavors, ha facilitat més de 50 cercles de dones per compartir les meditacions de les benediccions mundials de l’uter en diferents espais.També ha realitzat cercles de dones a l’Om Shanti de Girona, creient fermament en el seu poder i sanació per les dones que hi participen.

Acompanya a dones en els seus processos vitals i realitza rituals femenins per celebrar ritus de pas, acomiadar-se de l‘uter i d’altres.

Actualment, facilita grups per aprofundir en el llibre Las mujeres que corren con los lobos de la psicoanalista junguiana Clarissa Pinkola Estés i s‘està formant en astrologia a l’escola Animal Espiritual creada per Laura Gutman.

John Lizcano

John Lizcano

ASHTANGA YOGA TEACHER

John, fascinated by the complexity of the human body, initiated a journey of discovery focused on the performing arts and science that is behind the mechanics of movement.

He practiced and competed as a sports gymnast in his native country (Colombia). After an injury to the wrists, he decided to look for a healthier discipline and discovered yoga. As it entered into the practice of yoga, he was understanding and integrating his philosophy, which fascinated him.

Later, he was formed as a nursing assistant, Ayurvedic medicine(abhyangam pranic) and Mindfunlness, among others.

His arrival in Europe, motivated him to immerse himself in a more complete experience traveling to India, where he made his first training of yoga styles more dynamic and his first retreats of vipassana meditation, and residencial retreats on the Theravada tradition.

In 2011, he made his first training in BCN Vinyasa flow style and in 2015, in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, a style that allows him to combine different interesting elements that has been acquiring throughout his learning.

At the moment he’s transmiting the first series of Ashtanga along with Rocket Yoga (Ashtanga Yoga Progressive) and teaches meditation and conscious movement.

Iratxe Medrano

Iratxe Medrano

VINYASA YOGA TEACHER

La vida de la Iratxe ha estat sempre unida al contacte amb la natura i les persones. En la seva recerca personal per a conèixer i comprendre la nostra naturalesa va descobrir el camí del Yoga.

Va estar 5 anys com a practicant amb diferents professors de Hatha i Iyengar i va decidir començar a formar-se i així compartir els coneixements i beneficis d‘aquesta filosofia amb d’altres persones.

Fa més de 10 anys que gaudeix treballant com a professora de Yoga però mai ha deixat de costat el seu paper d‘aprenent. Ha continuat formant-se en diferents estils de Yoga i ha cercat a través de la pràctica i l’estudi la capacitat de desenvolupar eines per poder compartir-les.

Va residir a Menorca on es va formar com a profesora de Pilates amb la “Asociación española de Pilates y Tai-chi". Després es va traslladar a Mallorca per formar-se durant un any a la “Asociación de yoga y filosofía S’OM” a Mallorca", on va participar en numerosos seminaris de Yoga Iyengar amb l’Angelo Cecchi. Va viatjar a l‘Índia i durant uns mesos va poder viure l’experiència dels origens del Yoga convivint en un Ashram familiar a la ciutat sagrada de Haridwar i gaudint de la saviesa de mestres com Mittra Rawat a Rishikesh. Aquesta experiencia la va portar a iniciar una nova formació a l’escola Bindu de Barcelona amb la que actualment col·labora en la formació de nous professors.

Ara, instalada en el pla de l’Estany i inspirada per un altre paisatge, vol compartir la seva experiència i acompanyar a qui vulgui trobar una ment estable en un cos sa a través de l’autoconeixement.

Gemma Xicota

Gemma Xicota

KUNDALINI YOGA TEACHER, ANUSARA YOGA, PROGRESSiVE ASHTANGA, INTEGRAL YOGA, and GESTALT THERAPIST.

Gemma began to discover the corporal moves through the sports of gymnastics. A continued injury at the age of 11 made her be in touch with yoga for the first time. Since then she had decided to research this internal experience until today.

The interest in human essence leads her to study to become a Gestalt Therapist at the Gestalt Institute of Barcelona. It is here where everything began to have sense, questions and answers joined to be one only mean. At that moment she will go on a journey to South America looking for more experiences and research for more therapies and treatments, finding the first Integral Yoga training in Buenos Aires to the Ashram of Swami Maitreyananda, exploring the therapeutic effects of yoga and its ability to increase the quality of life.

Years after her return to Barcelona gave her the chance to join a Kundalini Yoga course from the hand of Sat Hari Kaur who will spiritually fill her up and give her the bases and discipline to continue with an internal investigation. Following up yoga she formed herself as Ashtanga Yoga Progress in Huelva and Malaga, Anusara Yoga in Peru and Mexico, and continuing in Chile to learn more about Kundalini Yoga teachings.

Her last experience with yoga took her to the second level with Shiv Charan Singh and began the yoga specialization for the gift and healing of childhood with Nam Nidhan Kaur Khalsa, who currently continues to train.

Yoga has the amazing ability to train the body, while also calming the mind and spirit. Many people around the world have recognized Yoga as the ultimate form of practice, attaining through its strength, as well as, spiritual growth and a healing process.
