Guest Yoga Teacher Lena Tancredi
Lena Tancredi was born in Brazil in 1969. She has been living in Ibiza since 1990. She is an artist and Sivananda Hatha yoga teacher.
She started practicing yoga following a paralysis caused by a thermal shock that mainly affected half of her face. The doctor recommended, apart from acupuncture and other techniques for recovery, the practice of yoga. This is how she started to recover and regain all the movements of her face. However, she also discovered a big passion of this philosophy, which years later made her become a teacher.
Through yoga she has been changing her habits and her way of thinking. Her desire in teaching yoga is to share the art of yoga that has changed her life, and brought joy, grace, strength, inner-peace, beauty, and a sense of empowerment in all that she does.
She is a certified Hatha yoga teacher with a diploma recognized internationally. She studied Yoga and Ayurveda in India, Haridwar at Baba Santosh Puri Ashram. She also trained in Nidra Yoga and in different Meditation techniques.
In Ibiza, Lena has been teaching regular yoga classes more than a decade, and for more than 5 years she has been teaching exclusive yoga retreats for more than 20 weekly retreats per year.
Lena’s Teaching Philosophy
Lena is a very open-hearted person and loves to connect with her students individually. There is an incredible amount of sharing and caring, along with laughing and playing in her classes. She has a great energy and a gift for communication with a big sense of humour. Lena’s fun yet focussed and comprehensive approach always creates a strong sense of unity among the students.The goal is to open the heart and feel the connection between all of us! She will be waiting for you with a big smile on her face and full of enthusiasm to share with you what she most loves in life.
The morning classes will be more dynamic and vigorous and there will be a large range of different asanas taught with many variations.
The evening sessions will be more restorative and some sessions will incorporate guided meditations.
THE SUBTLE BODIES AND THE CONECTIONS WITH THE PHYSICAL BODY (This workshop is included in your week)
The physical body is made of energy that vibrates very slowly, which is why it appears to our physical eyes to be solid. Through lack of information we have tended to focus exclusively on the physical aspect of ourselves without recognizing that it is actually created from and sustained by the energetic layers that are outside of our normal vision.
These energetic layers or subtle bodies create an interconnected field of energy around the physical body that is commonly known as the auric field. Each subtle body connects into the physical body via an energy point or chakra, which directs the energy into the physical body via the meridian and system.
In this workshop you are going to learn about the subtle bodies in order to understand its connections with the physical body and how to use this knowledge in your yoga sessions.
AYURVEDA DOSHAS DIET AND LIFE STYLE (The cost for this workshop is $40)
The aim of this workshop is to promote understanding of the basic principles of ayurveda, which are the Vedic view of creation, the principles of the five elements and how their qualities affect the body.
You will learn how to evaluate the doshas in yourselves and recognize how the doshas aggravate the body and cause disease.
And also know which foods should be included in a healthy diet and issues related to each.
You will learn about issues related to food combining and how it affects digestion and will be able to make basic staples for a healthy diet and life style.
