Luísa is a certified IYENGAR Yoga teacher with more than 10 years of teaching experience. She's been practicing Yoga for more than 15 years and has travelled several times to India to deepen her knowledge and practice in Yoga and Vedanta.
Luísa was born in Porto, Portugal, 30 years ago.
When she was 13, Yoga appeared in her life to “save” her body and give her the confidence that, as a teenager, she was missing.
With more or less dedicated years of practice, Yoga became part of her life, and today, it’s her life.
When she was 20 and 21, she travelled to Brazil for a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, and had the first contact with Vedanta – the study based on the final of the Vedas - the study of the “Self”. After, in 2010, went to Rishikesh, India, to learn directly from Swami Dayananda, in Swami Dayananda Ashram, where she went back for three times more.
It became clear that Yoga cannot be separated from the vedantic vision of the Self.
With 22 years old, she started to practice IYENGAR Yoga.
As Yoga is for the mind, Luísa found in IYENGAR Yoga the most powerful instrument of it.
After 7 years of IYENGAR Yoga practice, in Portugal but also in India, with some of the most worldwide recognized IYENGAR Yoga teachers, she successfully completed the 3 years IYENGAR Yoga Teacher Training, becoming a certified teacher.
She’s currently living part of the year in India, practicing and learning with Usha Devi. In 2016, she was as well in the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute, in Pune, India.
Luísa also studied Law. She possess a Master Degree in Economics Law and a Post-Graduation in Accounting and Tax.
