Magda Torres has been practicing yoga since 2001. Since then, she senses, she has been able develop herself positively on many levels again and again. Today, she wishes to pass her experience on to others.

She has been a certified yoga instructor since 2012. Throughout the years, Magda came in contact with many different yoga styles – Ashtanga, Anusara, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Iyengar and Jivamukti – that she now passes on to her students as Simply Yoga. Magda’s approach in her own practice and as a teacher is experienced in life, pragmatic and free of judgement and criticism. Her classes are characterised by a healthy sense of humour and a focus on simplicity. Whereas it is also important to her that students don’t follow her blindly: They should explore their bodies and their inside – after all, what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for someone else.

As a yoga teacher, Magda mainly wants one thing: to provide an impetus – for consciousness, personal responsibility and positive change.

The best yoga teacher I have ever met!

I am practicing with Magda since a couple of months so far. She is a great teacher, educated, kind and very clever. Her classes are very interesting, dynamic and you can learn a lot. I am following Magda in various yoga studios in Berlin. I can highly recommend her to anyone who likes a demanded class!

In the past year I have been attending Magda's classes I have learnt a lot about my body and yoga basics that are crucial to develop further. She manages to create a very friendly and challenging atmosphere in the class room, where you can, over time, notice your advancement. She values a quiet and concentrated class (e.g. no music) to make sure we are focused and can dully delve into the practice to shut out the outer world. I have learnt a lot in the past and usually do so every class I go to, which makes the classes very enjoyable! Always happy to go back!

Very good classes, calm but tough

Magda is one of the best yoga teachers that I've encountered in Berlin. Especially if you like a physical challenge. She balances her classes between the normal sun salutation poses and usually some special pose, which helps you train for core stability or strength in your arms. She is very experienced, will tell you what (not) to do in a very calm and clear way and sees it when you are trying to make it too easy for yourself. I keep coming for this class!

I was doing my downward facing dog wrong the whole time

Magda corrects your yoga pose and explains very thoroughly how you should do each pose. She's a great teacher to have whether you're a complete beginner or a long-time yogi. In every session, I learn something new and I can feel a big difference in my strength and flexibility afterward.

Magda is a great teacher

We are very lucky to have Magda teach yoga in our office every week. She is a skilled and experienced teacher, and puts a lot of thought and effort into creating a challenging class for all different levels of yoga experience. She will make you work up a sweat, and you'll feel amazing after.

Friendly attitude and focus on technique

Magda is friendly and helpful before, during and after class. I really appreciate her emphasis on technique and doing moves properly, which reduces the risk of getting hurt. She's very knowledgeable, which shows in the way she conducts class and also in her abilities to do and maintain various poses. I highly recommend her!

As a complete beginner, I've been working with Magda for a couple of months now and have already felt the benefits her tuition has brought to my body and life. She's a little ray of sunshine coming through the door for every session and afterwards I always feel relaxed, balanced, stretched and calmed. She's very engaging, with a great sense of humour, and listens to what I'm hoping to get from the classes. This is my first experience of yoga, in my 50's, and even after only a few lessons I can feel my core strength improving and far fewer muscular aches and pains. I thoroughly recommend Magda to anyone looking for a fun way to achieve the same benefits.

Fantastic, inspiring yoga teacher

I love taking yoga class with Magda. Each class is thoughtfully prepared and focuses on a different aspect of the practice. She's great at giving options to fit different levels, while still gently pushing you to try harder. I also really appreciate the small corrections and reminders about alignment that not every yoga teacher focuses on. Training with Magda I feel my practice getting stronger and more fluid week by week. It's a joy to be a part of her classes.

Excellent one-on-one!

My one-on-one classes with Magda have been amazing. She is clear in her explanations and demonstrates step by step adjustments and positions. She has shared deep knowledge about yoga and the human body - and that has given me a whole new insight in my yoga practice and in the relationship with my body.

Friendly and professional

I'm very happy with Magda as a teacher, her explanations are always very clear so you can easily understand how to move and, very important, why. I've learnt a lot about my own body thanks to her and can't wait to keep learning!

review from astrid

I visit weekly the course and I am enthusiastic. Magda has changing topics with a certain focus. She makes it very interesting as well as convincingly asanas. I learned and understand in a few weeks very much of Magda and to practice much conscius Yoga. Thanks

Love every session with Magda!

Even though it's hard to get up in the morning to go to yoga class, I again and again am so glad I did because starting your day with Magda makes it brighter! She is not only beaming and friendly, but also let's you work out in a way that will not destroy you for the rest of the day. In every class we will focus on another skill or body part. Lots of the exercises are about learning to be more conscious - both physical and spiritual - without being esoteric!
I can highly recommend Magda!

The best Yoga Teacher I trained with so far.

I have been practicing yoga since 2010 with different teachers, and I never really got it. I am not very spiritual and no teacher could put across the actual message of yoga. Training with Magda helped me, to understand not just what my mind can do during her sessions, but also to understand my body right and see what I can do and what I can't, and not get frustrated about it.

We train now for over a year and I have achieved not just (almost) doing my first handstand, but I now do the "oahmmm" at the beginning and end of the class, which took me 6 month to do, because I thought it was "stupid". That's maybe not a great achievement, but for me, understanding why we do certain things in yoga, is more important, than just doing them.
Magda understands to explain and show things, that will help you improve spiritually and physically.
I also really like that each of her classes have different topics, so it never gets boring.
