Meet your Instructors
Christa started her holistic yoga journey after experiencing some mental health issues.
Along her journey she completed a Hatha/Vinyoga yoga teacher training, a yin yoga teacher training in India.
She completed a trauma yoga for therapy training in Colombia and taught in a female prison!
Christa moved a bit more than a year ago from the Netherlands to Spain and she teaches weekly yoga classes
in the serene garden of the guesthouse. Christa has a RYS 500.
Sati completed her yoga training in India in 2018 and since then has been teaching traditional hatha and guiding meditation. It was during the pandemic that SatI started her journey into teaching Yin yoga after completing her trainings with Paul Grilley and Loka Yoga School.
The approach to her class is to focus on developing a mindful and meditative state, and to deepen the connection with the breath and body. Sati strongly believes that Yoga and Meditation have the power to strengthen and heal our physical, mental and emotional health, and is passionate and committed to sharing this practice with as many people as possible.
Jana Krajňáková and Jorge
Jana discovered yoga in 2013 while living in China. She soon started to feel that there was something extra ordinary in it and that it is no way just a physical exercise.
As she dived deeper into regular practice over the years she decided to deepen her knowledge in a teacher training in India where she discovered how beautiful it is to get in touch with our bodies, listen to their wisdom, quiet the mind, find the vibrant resonance between our inner and outer worlds and recognize the divine within.
Soon after she fell in love with the practice of acroyoga which combines yoga, acrobatics and therapeutic arts. She currently offers acroyoga workshops with her life partner and a passionate yoga/acroyoga practitioner Jorge. She also teaches Hatha and Ashtanga yoga in Valencia.
Jana has completed 200 hours of Hatha Yoga training, 100 hours of Ashtanga Yoga training with Yoga Alliance Certifications, Adapted Yoga training for people with disabilities with Arunai Method and AcroYoga teacher training by AcroYoga International.
