Tapashi Devchoudhury

EN/FR

Tapashi Devchoudhury

Born in a Hindu Brahmin family in Northeast India, Tapashi was introduced to asanas very early by her father, and the wisdom of ancient Hindu philosophies by her mother. Such ancestral wisdom has brought her a deep understanding of the subtleties of oriental philosophy and the connections between body, mind and spirit. Fascinated by ancient healing techniques, she is passionate about re-introducing this wisdom to the contemporary world. Tapashi teaches meditation, mantra chanting and asanas. Her style of teaching is a blend of traditional hatha yoga with tai-chi influences. She believes that 'Yoga' cannot be taught, it can only be experienced, and her classes aim to make this experience accessible to the modern body-mind.

Joanna Lancaster

Joanna Lancaster

It all started with a thirst to live life differently, with a desire to be free from conditioning. Already living in a community at 16 years old, it was only a year later that the road to India was taken to discover Mother Earth and her mysteries. The sages, the philosophy, the rituals as well as the cuisine of the sub-continent were instantly intoxicating, a few more journeys and the mystical practice of Yoga was approached. From her 20s, the foot was on the mat and did not come off. During this decade it was the practice of Iyengar, then the whole of her thirties and still to this day Ashtanga rhythms the days.  Also trained in Jivamukti, Joanna’s 12 years of teaching are borrowed from these three practices. Her classes are fluid with an emphasis on alignment, influenced by philosophy, but also sometimes, if not frequently, from British humour.

Patricia Sainz De Rozas

Patricia first came in touch with Yoga when she moved from her native city, Madrid, to the mountains of Lake Tahoe, in Northern California, at the age of 18 pursuing her passion for nature and outdoor sports. After falling deeply in love with the practice and philosophy of Yoga, in 2014 she spent 5 transformative months in India, where she got her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification. Since then, she has been sharing her passion with others around the World, and continues to learn the infinite wisdom of this ancient practice. She teaches yoga from the heart, as a way of introspection to connect with the divine soul and find bliss within. In 2018 she worked as a resident teacher/therapist for a yoga retreat center in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, The Yoga Forest; which opened her heart and her voice to the divine. Living in a conscious community and immersed in the practice, she deepened her spiritual path, integrating other modalities such as Bhakti and Nada Yoga, the practice of devotion and sound, singing mantras and medicine music; somatic healing and embodied dance; alongside being immersed in other shamanic practices, and learning from the indigenous wisdom the ceremonial way of life. In 2022 she returned to Guatemala to become the manager of The Yoga Forest, and also to get her 100 hr certification in Sound Healing Ceremony from her teachers in the lake. The main focus of her work is to bring you to a state of dynamic equilibrium of mind, body, and Spirit. By learning how to relax, inspiring to move, providing tools to deal with stress, anxiety and depression, learning to be present, surrender to what is, loving yourself, and awaken a heart centred connection to life, she will integrate peace into your life and bring up a blissful and harmonious state of wellbeing.

Sabine Aleksic

Sabine Aleksic

Being an extrovert and active person, yoga allowed me to slow down, channel and feel my thoughts and energies. Through the practice of yoga and various breathing and asana (movement) techniques, I have been able to connect with the present moment and tune into my deepest inner feelings. On the yoga mat I feel connected, grounded, light, healthy and I feel that the possibilities are endless. I love teaching yoga because it gives me the opportunity to share my love for this practice and lifestyle. To have the chance to guide and encourage people in their moment of reconnection with themselves is a real privilege. To teach yoga is to be able to share that feeling and connection with others. I always say that I am not a yoga teacher, but that I serve the practice. The classes I teach are oriented so that students can calm their minds through conscious movement while working on stretching, improving balance, mobility while strengthening the physical body, mind and soul. To be able to stand strong, clear minded and grounded in our everyday life.

Sophie Dorsaz

Sophie Dorsaz

Un moment suspendu. Une écoute bienveillante du corps, du coeur et de l’esprit dans un quotidien effréné. Voilà ce qui a marqué Sophie lors de ses tout premiers cours de yoga. Un temps d’arrêt bienvenu dans sa vie active de journaliste et amoureuse des sports de montagne. Habituée aux mouvements physiques, le yoga l’a poussée à observer les mouvements intérieurs. D’abord durant les cours hebdomadaires qu’elle suivait, puis plus profondément lors de sa formation de quatre ans à l’école «Shunyâta yoga». Une meilleure connaissance d’elle-même l’a ensuite invitée à mieux comprendre le vivant autour d’elle. Elle s’en ainsi dirigée vers la formation d’accompagnatrice en moyenne montagne. Aujourd’hui, à travers ses balades et ses ateliers de yoga, elle a à coeur de partager son émerveillement pour la vie sous toute ses formes, humaine, végétale ou animale.
