Hi! My name is Estela, I´m from Spain, and I am a yoga teacher. I combine this job with my bachelor studies in Psychology. My first encounter with yoga was in 2016 in London, where I lived for a few years, and I really fell in love with it after experiencing the great physical and mental benefits it brings. I was plunged into a fast, noisy and stressful life-style. I suffered from backaches and anxiety regularly, I had an office job I was not really “connected” to and my body, even though I was very young, was weak and rigid. I did not have a background in ballet or gymnastics, so the process was slow and mindful but very rewarding. I incorporated yoga into my daily routine, and it soon became one of my favourite moments of the day: a time for selfcare, introspection and calmness. And that is exactly what I try to communicate to my students. I completed my certification with Kavaalya, a yoga school based in India and thanks to whom I now have a comprehensive understanding of yoga: its philosophy, pranayamas (breathing techniques), asana practice (postures) and meditation, all seen as a whole. I feel fortunate that I have trained with great teachers in a variety of styles (Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin) throughout the past years, teachers I fondly remember. Yoga really is observation. It's movement, without judgement. Creating space where there was rigidity only. It's growing strong knowing the process will be bumpy, respecting our own limits with kindness and self love. You will be your own best yoga teacher, I´ll be your guide. I would be more than happy to support you in this amazing journey!
