Manuela has been teaching yoga for the last 6 years at Desa Seni and studying different styles: Iyengar, Vinyasa flow, Kundalini, Anusara and Embodied FlowTM. For the last 4 years she has been the Yoga Director at Desa Seni, developing and designing the yoga program as well as producing all the promotional material. Manuela has been certified as an E-RYT 200 level teacher and is passionate about her calling. Her dynamic and creative sequencing style along with blending proper alignment and a lot of intuitive movement, encourages her students to use their bodies as a vehicle to express deep emotions. Manuela teaches from the conviction that every human being has a higher essence to discover, unfold and manifest. It is this belief that encourages Manuela to teach the students to develop a practice that is unique and beautiful, compelling them to integrate their practice into everyday life. Manuela has also developed a series of workshops about cellular intelligence, focusing on exploring the body-mind connection. She believes that in weaving this scientific knowledge about the brain into a yoga practice, creating awareness with the practitioners, one will better understand the benefits of Yoga from a modern perspective.
