Meet Our Teachers

Govinda Cator
Yoga for Beginners

I started my journey as a yoga teacher in India completing 200 hours in Ashtanga Yoga in Goa, then I studied Ashtanga at the Patthabi Jois Institute in Mysore. I have studied 300 hours with Noah Maze. My asana practise improved deeply when I met Shiva Rea who changed my asana practise forever by teaching me how to embody the power of Prana, Prana Flow is definitely my soul style. I am an eternal student and I am so happy to share what I have learnt.

For me yoga is what everybody needs, we all live in these bodies, we all have these minds, and we still do not understand them. One of the fundamental goals of yoga is the connection of body, mind & spirit. Without the development and integration of them we are not whole, we are not balanced, and therefore, we are not well. Yoga brings unity and understanding of the nature of these parts, the more you practise the more you understand, the more you become whole.
Tinja Berg
Hatha (Intermediate & Advanced)
Ashtanga (All levels excluding compl beginners)

Yoga has helped me to open up myself, my vision to my own potential. I think Yoga gives us a challenge that allows us to reach within to discover ourselves… a practice within a practice… a teacher in and of itself!

I do my best to transmit this challenge to the students so they can find their own practice!
Mei Berit
Vinyasa (Intermediate & Advanced)
Stretching (All Levels Including Beginners)
Arm balances & Inversions (Intermediate & Advanced)

I've always been a very active and energetic child, climbing trees, cycling, running around - you name it! When I was about 11/12 years old doctors discovered I had osteoporosis in my right knee due to skeletal abnormalities in the hips and thighs. I needed a major operation and was wheel chair bound for 6 months, had to learn how to walk again! It alienated my body from me and it took me till my early twenties to actually reconnect my body and soul into one being.

I started taking Ballet classes at age 24 and then got into Pole Fitness one year later. I realized that my body was much stronger than I had thought for a long time and I slowly started to love it again with all its faults and little restrictions. In 2016 I discovered yoga and it completely transformed my life! My mind, body and soul finally became one again!

I wanted to share this experience with others, so in 2017 I took the RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training. I've been teaching yoga ever since and I love to spread the knowledge, experience and benefits that yoga provides. In autumn 2019 I took an extra 30 hours of advanced yoga teacher training to deepen my own practice and improve my teaching skills further. I love Vinyasa because when you flow through your asanas you feel so light, it's like a dance of your mind and body, it feels so weightless and free! I'm looking forward to meeting you and guide you on your yoga journey. Lots of love and light!
Aaron Falzon
Hatha (Intermediate & Advanced)
Yin (All Levels Including Beginners)
108 Sun Salutations (Intermediate & Advanced)

I started practising yoga in Thailand in 2012 during which I attended a Thai Oil Massage course. In 2013 I deepened my practise of Hatha yoga in Rishikesh, India. While being there I was lucky enough to attend daily satsangs by Prem Baba and ShantiMayi. This is where I really decided to be on team consciousness. I discovered so many new things about myself at this vital time. Conscious breathing and being conscious with your words among others.

Later in 2013 I completed a Traditional Yoga teacher training course at Yoga Vidya Gurukul, an ashram in India. In 2015 I was back at the Ashram to attend two courses; Advanced Yoga course & Mantra course. In 2017 I was in Bali to complete Level 1&2 Yin Yoga TTC by Sebastian Pucelle. Here I was introduced to so many new ingredients to put into my practice. I choose to always be a student of what I love. All of it. I have lighthearted attention to detail and passionate dedication to the practice. It can be a struggle at times but my Yoga is the underlying force keeping all of the pieces together. Yoga reminds me that everything is connected so we must live, act, dance, breathe with awareness.

If the journey really is the reward, then I choose to enJOY the journey. I hope you will join me.
Julia Markovska
Yin (All Levels Including Beginners)
Yin Yang (All Levels Including Beginners)

Julia was introduced to Yoga in 2006 during her travels and after continued to deepen her practice in London. Julia's practice felt very natural to her, but it was her trip to India, the philosophy, the ancient and holy teachings of Yoga that really hit home. This is where she found her life purpose learning, sharing and living in the total surrender of now. Guided by her beloved yogi, it was there in the ashram (Yoga Vidya Gurukul) Nasik India her true calling was born.

Since then she hasn't looked back. She is constantly creating new ways to bring Yoga to those that need it most, allowing them to strengthen the relationship they have with themselves by generally bringing a sense of happiness and positivity into their lives. In 2016 Julia accomplished 250 hours of Yoga teaching training, followed by 100 hours of pre and post-natal TTC, and also went onto Yin Yoga levels 1 (Anatomy & Theory) & 2 (Meridian series & Traditional Chinese Medicine), with Sebastian and Muriel in Bali.

Julia's classes help you to stop worrying about the future and rehashing the past and become present. Julia helps you to remember who you are, what's important in life and helps you to breathe. She practices and lives Yoga every day and offers the gift that transformed her life to you. This combined with a deep and authentic passion for her subject and genuine affection and respect for the people she works with makes her a very special teacher indeed.
Marty Cesari
Pilates (Intermediate & Advanced)
Pilates for Beginners

Coming from a dance background, Martina first discovered Pilates and Yoga as a tool for dancers to improve strength and flexibility and has fallen in love with these incredible disciplines since then.

She teaches Pilates in a dynamic form inspired by the classical "mat work" and Vinyasa Yoga. Classes are built in order to give everyone the chance to practice and work within the possibility of his own body.
Mariana Garcia
Ashtanga (All Levels including beginners)

I am passionate about bodies, soul, feelings and expression. The connection with my own body started with gymnastics. I trained for the circus since I was 16 years old, aerial skills were already part of my life. But I was curious to learn about how to keep your body healthy, which opens the door to Yoga. I believe yoga practice is the best for ourselves, to take care of the body and the mind, working together, connecting with the breath. Yoga has helped me with finding balance in my life, and I love to have the possibility of transmitting this amazing practise.
Conrado Enrique
Hatha (Intermediate & Advanced)

I discovered Yoga in Australia in 2011, after trying a Bikram class just because it was the only "thing" available. I actually thought it was a kind of gentle gymnastics. Very wrong I realized I was. I'm always up for a good challenge and the "challenge" of my life I had found!

To me Yoga has grown to be a "real" practice, that allows us to re-dis-cover how to be in our body, this perfect, conscious machine that we're born with-in. Yoga develops strength, flexibility, and awareness… and up to us it is to evolve further and create the "union", create the Yoga, allow it to flow! Yoga is only a bridge between the mind and the body and the spirit, the glue that bonds the cliche!

Yulsia Chernenko
Vinyasa (Intermediate)

After giving up her lawyer career, Julia found joy and peace in the practice of yoga.

She is being constantly inspired by Buddhism and Dalai Lama teachings. To her, yoga is a training of mind that brings calmness and teaches to accept everyone and everything as it is - with love, and without prejudice and expectation.

Being brought up in a close connection to the world of psychologists, Julia has mastered her knowledge about it through tutorials and training with some well-known specialists in the field. Put all together with 255 hours of teacher training in Vinyasa, it allowed her to integrate different mind and soul healing techniques to her dynamic and energizing classes with the time for meditation and self-exploration.

Julia also has a background in dance and ice-skating which makes her classes creative and knowledgeable. She wants to share the experiences and invites you to join her Vinyasa flow classes.
Shalise Barnes
Barre (All Levels Including Beginners)
Hatha (Intermediate & Advanced)

Shalise trained as a dancer for many years before discovering yoga. She loves to explore how to use yoga principles to build physical strength, foster mental perseverance, and find inner peace. An artist at heart, she helps each student discover their own potential and what yoga means to them.
Anna Scigacz
Ashtanga (Intermediate & Advanced)

My journey with yoga started with a "prescription" from a physiotherapist. It was over 12 years ago. Moving to Asia later to live and work in a very high paced environment for a couple of years got me much closer to what I really needed at this time to balance my stressful and fast life. Less gym, less running, less pushing, less undermining, more understanding, more listening to what body needs. That was the time when I got completely hooked - both feet in.

I still was and still am in a very demanding and challenging mode choosing Ashtanga Vinyasa as my main style. Not being in a rush though. Understanding that it is a never ending journey of one asana after another, one concept after another, peeling patiently those layers covering deeper and deeper knowledge.

After some 8 years of slowly becoming a practitioner I decided it is time to share: experience, passion, love…all of it. Later on I also completed a Asana Sequencing and Anatomy training to better understand the body and better serve different students needs.

In my teaching I want you to understand that your practice is primarily your practice. Everything comes after. You are your first teacher and you know your body best. Listen to it, then listen to your teacher and be fine with any limitations you encounter on the way. They are not there forever and each practice differs from one another. Challenge yourself but yet at the same time ditch the expectations and steep demands towards yourself then wonders will start happening. Just watch it.

Julienne Schembri
Creative Vinyasa Flow (All levels excluding Beginners)

I moved to London to dance in 2009 & have since completed my training in musical theatre & most recently a master's in contemporary dance. I spent my time in London as a freelancer, in and out of performing & teaching. In 2014 I gained my 200hour teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, and subsequently a children's yoga teaching certificate with Yoga Bugs. In my recent studies, I extensively invested my research into the field of somatics and wrote my dissertation inquiring about what Yoga as a somatic practice would be. I teach a playful yet strong yoga class that integrates opportunity to arrive in the present, to tune in to oneself.

My classes incorporate traditional yoga asana combined with movements inspired by practices other than yoga, intending to continually challenge the body and the mind.
Georgie Logan
Kundalini (All Levels including beginners)

I first began to practice yoga in 2003 at 16 as a way to heal my scoliosis and move my body in a creative way.
Over the next decade I explored different styles from Ashtanga to Vinyasa, Hatha and heated, in time I delved into the philosophies and teachings to explore mindfulness, breathwork and meditation.

In 2017 I took my first Kundalini Yoga class and my mind was opened and I left the class needing to know more, in 2019 I began my yoga teacher training and now my practice and my classes are about going within, experiencing your practice and becoming aware of the energy within you.
Aaron Aristun Shah
Calisthenics (Intermediate & Advanced)
Animal Flow (Intermediate & Advanced)

I come from a background in Dance where I spent over a decade training various styles but primarily in breaking (break dance), in 2016 I branched out & attained my level 3 certificate in personal training & continued with my personal development through attending various workshops and courses in London.

I have since attained certificates in Animal FlowTM, Calisthenics, Mobility, Self-massage & Sports Massage Therapy.

My practice revolves around a more wholesome holistic way of moving which stems from my movement background in dance where I gained my skills in identifying individual needs in a group setting, albeit challenging, I enjoy identifying & investing in people's needs.
Ray Zahra
Gong Bath Meditation (All Levels including beginners)

I am a yoga and meditation teacher and Reiki Master. My former acting teacher suggested I get some movement classes and I started my yoga life at a the New York City White Cloud Yoga Studio which is kundalini yoga for dancers. There I worked with the creator of gyrotonics and gyrokinesis which is kundalini yoga without a lot of emphasis on pranayama but recently I've discovered.the great benefit of adding special pranayama to the asanas as they really detoxify your body and make you feel great.

I've meditated most of my life and helped others meditate, even though some have told me that that they never thought they could meditate. I really believe that our inner world needs our attention through meditation as the outer world can't help you in the inner world until you work with it with letting go of patterns and through meditation. Last year I became a reiki master in India.
Jeremie Tranchant
Introduction to Vipassana Meditation (All levels including beginners)

I'm Jeremie, a social worker, educator, and now ecology student here in Malta. Passionate about philosophy, spirituality and psychology, I discovered Vipassana 3 years ago and it changed my life. I have been a dedicated meditator since then, practicing daily and exploring the teaching of S.N. Goenka. Without pretensions, I aim to share the basics of this wonderful technique and practice together as a "sangha"... And maybe inspire you to attend a full retreat one day !
Ashley Mumford
Vinyasa Open

Ashley began her yoga journey with hot/power yoga as a young adult in Connecticut, since that was the only style taught there at the time. She was drawn primarily to the breath control and connecting breath with movement. Upon moving to Los Angeles, she dove deeper into pranayama and meditation with her kundalini practice, and received a certification in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan in 2008. Since then, her focus has been more on asana, and she received a 200-hour training from YogaWorks in 2017. Ashley's classes are playful and challenging. She provides modifications and options for her students to explore their bodies in the poses. Los Angeles has been called the birthplace of modern yoga; where the science of creating a well-rounded class in a compact amount of time has been mastered. Ashley strives to bring this knowledge forward through her sequencing, leaving the students feeling revitalised and refreshed both physically and mentally. Her intention is to serve and elevate her students through exploring yoga in a playful way.
