    Yoga for Beginners and Intermediate Practitioners.

    Yoga is an often misunderstood and misapplied practice. Its universe is vast and I do not claim to comprehend it fully. Personally it is a practice for me to calm myself down and reward my body when agonised. The class will be structured around the student. Flexibility and strength are not requirements but benefits of a regular, dedicated, and committed practice. Depending on the student and the day the class may focus on holding poses, or sequencing them. This class will be useful to both myself and the student to learn more about our anatomy, as well as our nature. Yoga has been a part of my life since its beginning. I was born in India and studied in an Indian school where it was a regular practice for students.

    I look forward to a strong personal connection with my student where we take it easy or go crazy as the day calls. I like to explain things to people in a language they and their body understand. Yoga is not something that can be scheduled for 2 hours and forgotten about for the rest of the 22 hours. Eventually I foresee long term changes in the student's lifestyle. For example, what you eat during the day will affect greatly your practice in the night.

    All in all, my class will take an organic and personal system.

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Alina. I"m currently based in Brussels independently training myself as a dancer. Officially I study in Business Administration at KU Leuven and I'm in my last year. My daily practices include movement with a focus on dance, swimming, biking, reading, and drawing. These days I also try to play a little bit of music before going to bed. These are some of my favorite practices for the spirit. I learnt French a year and a half ago and also Spanish, but the latter could use a lot more practice.

    Education

    Bachelor of Business Administration - KU Leuven Campus Brussels (currently in my last year).
    High School diploma - Indian School Muscat, Muscat, Oman (completed in 2015)

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have experience as a yoga teacher and a French & English teacher. I am very adaptable to the different needs of different students and different mother tongues.
    The class will adapt specifically to the student based on the his/her mother tongue. I like to make relations with the student's natural response in his/her mother tongue and start from there on how to translate and transform that into the goal language. In this regard French, Spanish, and Hindi/Urdu speakers will be most benefited. My approach will mainly be reading and conversation - the two most important tools, as well as tests in our daily life. My propositions and ways to proceed will be organic and customized case by case.
    Language learning is a highly subjective terrain and I believe there is a perfect way for each person to learn a new language in function of several factors such as their mother tongue, lifestyle, hobbies, etc. Following this ideology I aim to provide customized classes based on the student's individual profile and inclinations, for example, we read if you like to read, we talk if that's your comfort zone, I can assign movies as homework for film buffs, and so on.

    Send a message explaining your needs and Alina will reply soon:
    The more detail, the better.

    Spiritual mind and body yoga from the beginner to the advanced level.
    Most people only understand the physical aspect of yoga, which entails stretching and stances to limber up the body and improve posture. But there is more to it than that. It also has a profound impact on a person’s life because of the way that it changes the mind in three unique ways: * Spiritual Awakening * Mental Focus and Clarity * Self Discipline and Control

    Briana
    Certified English Speaking Vinyasa Yoga Private/Group Instructor specializing in Asanas & Pranayama
    I am a professional dancer who has completed the 200 Yoga Teacher Training at Samyak Yoga in Mysore, India. My training is focused on the physical & mental state within yoga as well as breathing techniques called Pranayama to assist the practice and improve overall well-being. All of my private and group classes focus on making the yoga practice accessible for all practitioners from absolute beginners to advanced students. I believe Yoga is a shared experience that requires equal commitment from the teacher as well as the student. I make sure that students have a solid understanding of the postures, their benefits as well as the transitions between then to create a strong practice on and off the mat. I am always prepared to challenge the student as well as adapt to their needs.

    Private yoga lessons in Brussels - Hatha yoga, Yin yoga, Viniyoga, yoga for children and / or family
    training: Viniyoga - with Philip Rigo - MITRA asbl, in progress (recognized by the Belgian Yoga Federation (FBHY), the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation (KHYF) and ADEPS) - (500h YTTC) Yin Yoga - with Joe Barnett - Sampoorna Yoga studio, 2018/2019 - (70h YTTC) Yoga for children - with Catherine Nozeret - Ajna Yoga, 2017/2018 (recognized by the Ganapati committee and the French-speaking Belgian Association of Teachers and Practitioners of Yoga (ABEPY)) Hatha Yoga - Center International Arantha Yoga - Netherlands, 2016 (recognized by the Yoga Alliance and the International Yoga Federation) - (200h YTTC) Bachelor of Philosophy - University of East Anglia, UK, 2000 - 2003 Passionate about classical and contemporary dance since my childhood, graduate in philosophy and practitioner of Vipassana meditation, it is natural that yoga took a very important place in my life fifteen years ago. The discovery of yoga allowed me to overcome life's obstacles more easily and calmly. Yoga has transformed the way I look at myself and life in general. It brought so many positive changes to me, both physically and emotionally, that I wanted to share and share this wonderful gift. This is the reason why I took a Hatha yoga teaching training at the International Arantha Yoga Center in the Netherlands in 2016. Yoga is an integral part of my life. I have been teaching it since January 2017. This discipline being very rich, I continue to train myself by following various courses and internships with renowned teachers and I practice it almost daily. Because being a yoga teacher means being a student for life ... My training in teaching Yin yoga (yoga inspired by Chinese medicine) with Joe Barnett (student of Paul Grilley, founder of Yin yoga) made me discover a completely new facet of yoga. This gentle notion of yoga made me want to explore this ancient practice even more and that's why I decided to embark on a new training course to teach Viniyoga with Philip Rigo in Brussels in September 2019. Viniyoga is a concept of classical yoga which means “just application to practice”. It is a gentle approach to Hatha yoga developed by Krishnamacharya and then by his son TKV Desikachar. “It is yoga that adapts to the student and not the student that adapts to yoga”. This notion implies that yoga is open to everyone. It totally corresponds to my vision of yoga because I take care to adapt my classes to the morphology, physiology and the level of each one. Convinced that yoga brings as many benefits to children as it does to adults, I trained as a yoga teacher for children at Catherine Nozeret in 2017/2018. I have been teaching yoga to children since September 2018.

Explore your body through movement in a light and playful way and improve your flexibility while learning how to use your breath in a healing way. I'm offering private yoga sessions suitable for one person or small groups. Prices for small groups can be discussed. What I like about teaching: I'm interested in encouraging people to use their breath in an empowering and healing way. Further to that I like the combination of flowing movements and the cultivation of groundedness both with deep Ujjayi Breath. Through hands-on assists I like to support my students to get a deeper sensation of the pose and experience the borders of their bodies.
