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.

Hatha (Intermediate & Advanced)
Ashtanga (All levels excluding compl beginners)

Yoga has helped me to open up myself, my heart and my vision to my own potential. 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 that they can find their own path to self discovery.

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.
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!

Petra Pavlica
Hatha, VinyasaFlow & Yin

My Yoga practice started years before, first introduced from my father, who showed me the 'first steps'. Practicing and observing beautiful changes in my life I felt a strong desire to share it with others, started teaching small group of friends, what eventually lead to signing up for 200 hrs teacher training course here in Malta. I have learned early, how body movement affects on my emotions and helps to still the mind. I love to explore the flow through traditional yoga asanas, with movement, breath, joy and curiosity from it's core. When we are aware and connected within, then comes ease, freedom and lightness of being. The body becomes stronger inside and out, mind begins to settle and you experience fearlessness, gratitude, presence. Being a designer at heart, I mindfully design each class with the focus on connecting the breath to movement, with constant modification and variations to suit Everyone! Join me in this gentle fusion of HathaYoga & VinyasaFlow, with elements of Pilates, Fitness & Ballet Dance. Namste!

Danilo Tomaselli
Muay Thai (All Levels)

Martial Arts have always been a part of my life. I started karate when I was 5 years old and stopped when I was around 14 years old. That is when I discovered Muay Thai.

I was awarded a black belt in Karate and thought I had achieved something until I did my first Muay Thai session. I was in shock how demanding this practice was.

I have now practiced 15 years of Muay Thai. Wherever I go I bring it with me, it is a part of me. I have lived and travelled around the world sharing the practice with others. Training in many different places and countries has helped me to see what I think is needed in Muay Thai classes. I have built my training to be more approachable to everyone on any level.

Muay Thai makes me feel strong in my body, mind and spirit. It truly gives us inner strength and helps us to lose and get rid of all the stuck energies in the body. The inner power that I have gained from the practice has been guiding me in all aspects of my life. Good inner strength gives us self-confidence. It also gives us determination, tolerance and enthusiasm — all necessary for leading a balanced and happy life.

Ashley Martin
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.

I always considered myself an active person and my very first yoga class was a power vinyasa flow which I fell in love with mainly because of its strength and energy.
