Ameriga (ERYT500, Master Yoga Studies, Master NLP, Life Coach) is often described as an “unconventional” yoga teacher capable of taking students to the next level of practice, and inspiring deep reflections on their own life.
In her intense, powerful and transformative lessons, Ameriga eclectically blends different styles of postural yoga. Through her understanding of functional anatomy, she invites students to find depth in the poses by exploring them, instead of “performing” them according to an ideal form. Expect creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, often leading to a climax pose and garnished with Indian philosophy, psychology, engaging music and kirtan.
