Core Subject: Yoga Instructor
Her Words: My style has its roots in Iyengar and Centered yoga systems, in which each aspect of the practice is an opportunity to investigate the body, the brain and the mind, and enter a region of profound inner vision which permits the body of light to shine from within toward the external world. The use of props, such as blocks, belts, chairs or walls helps the practitioner to achieve precision and careful alignment, while providing a gradual and safe approach in learning the postures which strengthens the body while refining the mind. My approach to Yoga is to help people to experience more sensations instead of more thoughts during their yoga practice; create more space and freedom in the body and the mind so they can release tension and breathe better, free up energy and increase creativity. With a focus on cultivating awareness to discover our habitual movement patterns we can then explore alignment in a safe and accessible way, in order to make more conscious choices about how we move on the mat and in life. I’ve been practising Yoga for almost 15 years and have practised and studied with a variety of teachers from different traditions, like Kundalini, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Tantra, Anusara and Centered Yoga. In 2008, I travelled to Soiano dei Lago in Italy to study with Dona Holleman and then went on to gain the 400hr Yoga Instructor Certificate in 2012 at Semilla Yoga, with Claudia Guerrero, Pilar Casillas, Alicia Ramos and Jñana Dakini as my main mentors. Since then I have taught yoga at Semilla Yoga and other Yoga schools, gyms, parks, clinics and offices, sharing the joy of yoga with different people. My studies have included Vipassana meditation and Chinese Traditional Medicine courses, Radiant Child Yoga program with Shakta Khalsa, Centered Yoga Teacher Training with Dona Holleman, Anatomy for movement Training with Marcela Sanchez, Ashtanga Yoga retreat with David Williams, Iyengar Yoga course with Christian Pisano and June Whittaker, Tantra Yoga workshop with Michael Stewart, Yoga Philosophy with Shashi Dhar Dimri, Mindfulness workshops with Alejandro Velasco, Restorative and Therapeutic yoga courses with Luis Becerril, and Mantra Yoga classes with Donald Niedermayer and Paola Giovine. My experience includes teaching yoga to women in prison and running yoga sessions for young people in a youth custody center. I also have experience of teaching yoga to people with mental health and addiction problems in a specialized rehabilitation center in Mexico.
This retreat will take place at the Axarquia region - situated in the eastern part of the province of Málaga. Competa is an inland village in the Axarquia, well-known for the Andalusian legacy of Muslim rule. The location is a privileged tourist destination surrounded by olive groves, almond trees, and a 4000-hectare wildlife reserve in Sierra Almijara, just 15 to 20 kilometres from the main tourist attractions of the Costa del Sol, including the beaches of Torre del Mar, the famous caves of Nerja, and within striking distance of Granada, Sierra Nevada, and other places of interest.

What To Bring
Yoga Eco Oasis has yoga mats placed all over the place which you are more than welcome to use. Alternatively, if you are of the idea of having your own yoga mat by your side, you can get that along.
Going to sit by the pool? Don’t forget to bring aloe vera gel along with you. It is also suggested that you bring citronella-based insect repellant too.
If you are going to spend some time working on your laptop, etc., don’t forget to bring in a travel-adaptor.
There are towels, organic shampoo, and organic body wash provided for your personal use.
It is also suggested that you bring loose clothing + a cozy shawl for practicing yoga postures + meditation.
If you would like to spend a few days in the beautiful city of Malaga before or after the retreat, we will be more than happy to assist you. You can visit the lovely Pablo Picasso Museum, walk along Málaga beach, visit the ancient Arabic castle of the Alcazaba and the hammam baths, see the cathedral, enjoy some tapas, or go to one of the lovely vegetarian restaurants there.

The aim of this retreat is to help the patrons achieve the standards of holistic living. We focus not just on teaching yoga, but also on making the yogis aware of health and nutrition with the best knowledge available in the world. The teachers on this retreat are experts in nutrition, and, as a result, the week that you spend here will be full of delicious and healthy recipes. We will also conduct workshops on nutrition and healthy cooking.
The emphasis will be on locally grown organic fresh fruits and vegetables as well as wholemeal foods, antioxidants, and low-glycaemic living.
You will be explained the health benefits of the food we use – the locally produced organic food that is free of pesticides and foods made from spelt. You will return feeling like you have learned the best secrets of healthy cooking, living and practicing yoga.
