ABOUT THE CLASSES

Before finding yoga, Amor studied English Pedagogy at University for 5 years in order to teach English. Pedagogy is the science behind teaching. It is the study of how one learns best and what conditions facilitate learning. 

Her professional career as an English teacher started while living in Chile, and this made her realise that beyond teaching a language, she wanted to inspire her students to live healthier, happier lives and to realise the potential that lies within each one of them. She has been practicing yoga since 2007 and asanas (postures) makes only a portion of her yogic practice. She is a teacher who walks her talk and who is nurturing and caring.

Amor is not only a passionate teacher but an avid student. She radiates her love of yogic texts, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, fascia and more and shares this with all who see her regularly in her classes. 

 

With a functional approach to yoga, her “yang/active” classes encourage mindful movements in which traditional postures are combined with innovative transitions and different methods that support the development of the student’s mobility, flexibility, adaptability and strength. In her yin yoga classes, she guides practitioners not only through a somatic exploration but also through an cognitive and reflective journey, providing a safe haven for all.

In her classes, you can expect pranayama practices, guided meditations, yoga nidra, inspiring themes and much more. 

 

With heart and soul, Amor brings a positive, explorative, insightful and nurturing approach to the practice and classes and provides her students with a truly holistic view of yoga.
