STORY
Shanti Vida means Peaceful Life.
It is our wish. It is a sacred wish dedicated to all beings.
 
The process of our practice is a path through three levels of experiences which are linked together:
 
* Balance is our grounding, our starting point for true self-exploration. It is our foundation for Self Love. 
* Self Love enables us to have presence and forgiveness towards ourselves and the world outside of us. 
* Joy is the celebration and the result of a journey through Balance and Self Love.
 
In our sanctuary you will find a space for holistic therapies as well as therapeutic experiences. We offer teachings of yoga, words of coaching and creative methods of self exploration. We enjoy designing workshops combining that of art, music and yoga.
Our ultimate aim is to humbly share what we know, continue our learning, and practice with those who are willing to explore with us.

Liana


Hatha Vinyasa Yoga

Born in Barcelona in 1986, the mixture of cultures of her Franco-Dominican family has opened her horizons, and led her to travel and combine different hobbies as arts, design, photography and sports, until these fields became her profession, and she is very grateful for that. When she received her first Yoga class, she immediately knew that there was something more behind each asana, and decided to deepen her knowledge in the discipline.

Her practice is based on adapting Yoga to the needs of each one. By practicing different styles such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Jivamukti and Restorative, she not only follows a pedagogical approach, but also positions herself as a disciple in continuous growth. The focus of her classes is to connect with the present moment and with the inner self, to be better with ourselves and with our environment through something that we all share: breathing.

Catherine


Hatha Vinyasa Yoga

Catherine’s vision as a yoga teacher is about using movement to create change in your physical, emotional and mental well being. She believes yoga is the tool to help us access these changes and aids us in feeling happier, grounded and generally more fulfilled.
Yoga helps you to access parts of your body, which may be before you hadn’t even realized they were there. This access gives you freedom in your body to express yourself whether it’s creatively, physically, sexually or spiritually. Catherine found her passion for teaching yoga grounded in Hatha and Vinyasa flow and wants to share all she has learned with you.
