Luísa Geraldes is a certified Level II (Intermediate Junior I) IYENGAR® yoga teacher with more than ten years of teaching experience.

Luísa came across with yoga at the age of 14.

In 2010, already committed with the Yoga path, she travelled for the first time to India to deepen her knowledge of Vedānta and Yoga vision.
Since the same year, she is practicing according to the IYENGAR® yoga method.

Travels to India continued, either to learn Vedanta directly from Swami Dayananda in Rishikesh, either to deepen her IYENGAR® yoga practice with renowned teachers like Usha Devi, Rajiv Chanchani and Zubin Zarthoshtimanesh.

In 2016 she went for the first time to study at the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute in Puna, Índia, where returned in 2019.

For 4 years, Luísa spent half the year in India, practicing intensively with Usha Devi in Rishikesh, and sometimes even teaching at her behest. This cycle of yearly travels to India was interrupted by the pandemic in 2020.

In Europe, Luísa studied with Christian Pisano and from 2013 to 2016 with Billy Konrad, with whom completed her IYENGAR® yoga teacher’s training.

Ido Manor from Tel Aviv, Patxi Lizard from Madrid and Jordí Marti from Barcelona have been guiding Luísa’s practice the last years.

Luísa loves to be a student and the most important is to practice, but she’s fully dedicated in share what she has learned. Due to her unwavering conviction in the results of yoga practice, she is a committed and passionate teacher.

Luísa is from Porto, Portugal, where she’s now based after years of travels, where she runs classes and intensives. She also conducts workshops and retreats in Portugal and abroad.

Couldn't imagine better to start

I spent a week in Portugal with friends and Luísa practicing 3 hours a day Iyengar. It was the first time I practiced seriously Yoga and I couldn't imagine better conditions to start and discover. Luísa is very attentive, gentle and nice. She explained very carefully postures and adapted herself to our skills. We had great discussion on yoga far behind the physical exercice. I highly recommend her and hope to share other moments later on. Keep going on Luísa !

Best yoga experience!

Practicing and learning from Luisa was one of the best things it happened to my body and general health. Suffered from back pain, bad posture and sciatica, after regular work learned the basics that made my everyday life day easier and more energetic. Definitively a must try!
