About our tutor Isabel
Isabel is a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher and an Anusara-Inspired® Yoga Teacher. She is very grateful to have embarked on the journey of yoga, immersed herself into the teachings and to be able to share them with others along the way. She was 42 years old the first time she walked into a Hatha Yoga class, learning of the spiritual and physical benefits of yoga and staying present.
Until shortly before discovering yoga, she was not interested in any physical activities and having neither gymnastic nor dancing background, she thought the more challenging poses were impossible for ‘real people’. Anusara™ brought to her a real transformation, an open ocean of possibilities.
Due to the Universal Principles of Alignment™ used in Anusara™ Yoga, Isabel is thankful to be able to continuously evolve and grow both as student and teacher, and experience poses (Asanas) she would have never imagined. She has learnt and continues to study how these principles can be used to heal our own bodies.
Most of all, for Isabel yoga is a way of living, and she identifies fully with the Anusara™ philosophy: - Celebrating life - Everyday, looking for the good in everyone and everything - Staying connected within ourselves. It is through this connection that we can love and express sincere love and kindness to all human beings.
She is proud to be part of the Anusara™ Community (Kula) filled with highly trained and loving caring teachers sharing their knowledge. Every class, every practice is a play (Lila) free and deep, it is both the delight and enjoyment of the present moment.
She aims to share the joy of expansion of the whole being through this empowering practice where mind, body and spirit move towards a better integration and to work to a better version of ourselves.
Isabel hopes to welcome you personally to one of her classes, the doors are open.
About Anusara Yoga®
Hatha yoga is a small branch of yoga practices and Anusara is a system within Hatha Yoga. The Sanskrit word anusara translates as “to be in the flow of Nature,” “flowing with Grace,” and “to follow your heart.” Anusara Yoga® is an invitation for you to fully step into the Flow and experience all of the richness and highest possibility of your own life, to celebrate our lives as a gift of Grace.
Anusara Yoga® incorporates the application of precise bio-mechanical Universal Principles of Alignment ™ with life-affirming Shiva-Shakti Tantric-based yogic philosophy of intrinsic Goodness. It seeks to optimally align the body, mind and spirit and invites us to step into our potential and with the flow of Life itself. Anusara Yoga® is an all-inclusive yoga that welcomes diversity and encourages everyone to see the world as Shri- full of beauty, abundance and value. In honouring the Divine in all beings, we accept the world and ourselves as we are and learn to respond from a place of love and trust.
There is an emphasis on remembering the spiritual purpose of hatha yoga; which includes reconnecting with our innate goodness, power, and beauty, and expressing ourselves from that divine place. The poses in Anusara Yoga® are expressed from "inside out".
Founded by master teacher John Friend, Anusara yoga is now being taught globally by licensed teachers of the Anusara® School of Hatha Yoga™.
