SABRINA VENEZIA is Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga 200hrs RYT certified, her main focus is on adjustments and alignment, she will guide you thorough the primary series and invite you to listen to your body in order to still the mind. Sabrina began practicing yoga in 1993 and has spent many years traveling Asia and wondering the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas in search of the places where her practice originated, she is passionate about trekking and pilgrimages to the holy sites of the Himalayas, and she eventually decided to share her love for the culture and nature of the land with others.
Her yoga teachers are BNS Iyengar and Ajay Kumar of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga school of Mysore, in the early 90's she was initiated to asana practice by Simon Low (Yin&Yang Yoga and co-founder of Triyoga London), later she studied with Godfridev in Ibiza (Dynamic Yoga), and with David Swenson, Lino Miele and Kathy Cooper of the Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Vinyasa lineage, with Usha Devi in Rishikesh (Iyengar Yoga), Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa (Kundalini Yoga), as well as practiced intensively for some years Jivamukti Yoga and trained with Yogeswari and Patrick Broome at Jivamukti Yoga London. In recent years she is developing more interest in meditation techniques and healing. Sabrina feels blessed for the teachings that she has received and the inspiring people that she has met through her journey and continues a lifetime search for truth, knowledge and spirituality. After spending almost 20 years developing her own practice and having completed two 200hrs Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga TTC as well as studying philosophy, mudra and pranayama, Ayurveda nutrition and TCM, she began lovingly sharing her experience with students and organizing adventurous yoga retreats in the Himalayas hoping to be able to help others reaching that glimpse of bliss as she felt within when she embraced the beautiful lifetime journey which is yoga.
IAN BROWN has trained at the Bihar Scholl of Yoga in Rijhia, Jharkhand. He has a strong devotion to the sankalpa of Swami Satyananda to: spread the yoga door to door, shore to shore and the believe that yoga is the medium through which we can realize our true potential and alleviate our suffering.
Ian's journey began 15 years ago, he has travelled extensively India, spent time with the yogis of the himalayas, the Indian families, and visited many temples and ashrams. His path led him to experience many different kind of yoga including spending time to learn Kriya Yoga at the Hariharananda Gurukul. This has enabled him to develop his own brand of yoga meditation that is most suitable to the modern world.
Ian uses techniques of hata yoga, prana vidya and pranayama, nyasa (the ancient tantric practice of awareness and rotation of consciousness throughout the body), as well as yoga nidra techniques to induce deep relaxation and invoke a profound state of union between the panchakosha. He uses the vibrational sound waves of Gongs and Himalayan singing bowls that have a direct effect on the chakra system, creating a natural fine tuning effect.
It is within the calm tranquility of the mind that we can explore ourselves and balance can be brought to imbalance. It is in the silent meditating mind that the body's own natural healing forced can be harness, focused and developed into personal transformation and evolution: this is Gong Yoga.
