ISHTA Yoga is an acronym for the Integrated Sciences of Hatha, Tantra and Ayurveda. The word Ishta in Sanskrit also means "personalized", or "individualized" so ISHTA yoga focusses on the individual, rather than believing every body is exactly the same; offering students the possibility to truly become comfortable within themselves and to modify the practice to suit their needs with the help of the teacher.
Raphaella Rose of Yoga Ishta Style is passionate about her work and aims to create a space (in her classes) where students can use their individual intelligence stored in muscles, emotions and memories to guide them in finding beauty and their own power. She teaches in a friendly and accessible way for students of all ages and levels.
Raphaella has practiced yoga for 16 years and taught regular classes since 2005 when she completed a 200hr ISHTA yoga teacher training with Rachel Zinman in Byron Bay. She now lives in Barcelona and regularly runs Adventure Yoga Retreats in Europe.
