Pilates, Booty Barre, Balance
Bewegung stand schon immer im Mittelpunkt meines Lebens. In meiner Schulzeit liebte ich vor allem Jazztanz. Danach sammelte ich meine ersten Trainingserfahrungen im Fitness-Studio an den Geräten und ab 1993 als Aerobic-Trainerin.
Was am Anfang mein Hobby war, ist nach der Geburt meiner beiden Kinder zu meinem Beruf geworden. Ob Pilates, Booty Barre, Autogenes Training oder Ballance nach Dr. Tanja Kühne: Es macht mir Spass, Menschen für „meinen“ Sport zu begeistern, ihnen bei körperlichen Problemen zu helfen und zu sehen, wie sie ihre Fitness steigern.
Nach vielen Jahren als freiberufliche Trainerin im Bereich Gruppenfitness in einem Fitnessstudio, habe ich im September 2013 mein eigenes kleines Atelier eröffnet und mir meinen Traum erfüllt. Hier kann ich auf jeden Teilnehmer individuell eingehen. In einem angenehmen Ambiente macht es Spaß sich zu bewegen und vom Alltag abzuschalten.

Bikram & Baptiste Yoga, Barkan Method
After dabbling into various physical activities, I discovered yoga in 2006 in Manila, my hometown. From my first day of practice, yoga had a deep impact in the way I perceive myself and the world around me. Initially, I did the yoga for its physical benefits but now, I do it for the mental clarity and that sense of inner peace I get after a good practice. It has taught me to be fearless in the face of challenges.
My calling is to share with the world the gift of yoga. In 2008, I completed Bikram Yoga 9-week teacher training with Bikram Choudhury in Acapulco. I have also trained with Jimmy Barkan (levels 1, 2 &3), and Baron Baptiste (Power Vinyasa Yoga).
In 2011, my life dream came true when I opened my own yoga studio in Dublin where I help my students change their life one pose at a time.
'I have a few Wellicious pieces and I love the leggings and the cool top the most. The cool top is very flattering and the look can be used in and out of the studio!'

Alin unterrichtet klassisches Hatha Yoga (iyengar inspired). Die Iyengar Tradition reichte ihre Mutter bereits früh an sie weiter - denn mit nur 5 Jahren beobachtete die kleine Alin sie beim Kopfstand (Sirsasana). Mutter Kali “Kopf-stehen” zu sehen, war der Beginn einer Reihe eindrucksvoller Prägungen in ihrer Kindheit. Es folgten lange, gemeinsame Reisen nach Indien, Zeiten in einer für das Kind ebenso fremden wie aufregenden Welt der Ashrams. Die Wurzeln ihrer Spiritualität, das tiefe Verständnis für Yoga und Meditation liegen exakt hier, in ihrer Kindheit in Indien.
Und es knüpfte ein starkes Band zwischen Mutter und Tochter - heute ergänzen sie sich bei ihren jährlichen Workshops und Yogareisen. Alin und ihre Mutter Kali unterrichten zudem zweimal im Jahr ihre legendären Yoga-Retreats in Kalis wunderschönem Wellness Ressort “Reguengo” in Portugal (www.reguengo.com). Ihre gemeinsame Leidenschaft: jedem Einzelnen ein geerdetes Yogafundament zu schenken, das der Seele Flügel wachsen lässt. Immer und unbedingt mit der nötigen Prise Humor und Leichtigkeit!
Alin studierte unterschiedliche Yoga Stile wie Iyengar Yoga, Ashtanga und Vinyasa Yoga. Inzwischen ist sie selbst Mutter von drei Kindern und begleitet in ihren prä- und postnatalen Kursen viele Yoga-Mütter auf dem Weg zur innigen Verbindung mit ihren Babys.
Yoga bedeutet für Alin vor allem auch einen Raum der inneren Achtsamkeit zu schaffen, der Dich unabhängig von äußeren Einflüssen glücklich und zufrieden macht…
Paris, FranceYoga TeacherYoga found me in London in the mid 1990s amidst a haze of career, ambition and living/working/partying hard. Blocked in a masculine world fighting...
When I first discovered the writings of transcendentalists like Emerson and Thoreau as a teenager, it sparked an interest in Hindu texts and curiosity in the potential of human consciousness. On my school lunch break one day, I walked into a Yoga and meditation class in a church in Notting Hill. Needless to say, I was captivated.
Later, while a student at King’s College London, I started to explore different methods of Yoga such as Ashtanga and Kundalini Yoga during my free time and this practice planted seeds for a future lifestyle.
A few years later, while working as as a holistic therapist in a rehabilitation centre in Cape Town, people started asking me to share with them what they would sometimes see me doing in the garden. I reluctantly agreed, as I felt like a beginner and had not yet trained as a teacher. The experience was mind-blowing and has since served as a limitless source of inspiration, a reminder of the transformative power of Yoga.
After discovering Jivamukti Yoga in London in 2008, I undertook Jivamukti Yoga teacher training with Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York in 2010. I went on to complete an apprenticeship with Cat Alip- Douglas at Jivamukti Yoga London, where I was based as a teacher until the end of 2013. In January 2014 I moved to Luxembourg, to co-found the Dancing Kala Yoga School.
My dream is for Yoga to inspire human beings to wake up and get in touch with who they really are and to set about living in a way that causes the least amount of harm possible, whenever possible. I believe a Yoga practice, over time, enables us to directly experience the inter-connectedness of life and to become de-hypnotised from oppressive cultural norms and conditioning.
Yoga also teaches us to be courageous and kind, strong but also soft, to be flexible so as to not to ever become bent out of shape or broken – not just in our physical bodies but in our minds, hearts and attitudes. Yoga calls on us to let go of divisive world views and to come together in pursuit of a higher goal.
When not working with you at Dancing Kala Yoga, I can be found unrolling my Yoga mat at workshops, retreats, in local forests, at home and in sacred sites and spaces around the world, embracing that ever greater sense of incremental interconnectedness of life.
Teddington, United Kingdom
Yoga Teacher and Yoga Teacher Trainer
I have practiced Yoga for about 25 years and taught since 2002. For me Yoga isn’t just something you do on your mat with a teacher but a lifestyle, a whole way of living and thinking. I encourage my students to do a little bit of Yoga everyday. Whether that is 15 minutes of asana practice or Yoga breathing in bed before sleep or mindfulness practices around emotional wellbeing during a busy day at work.
My classes are an eclectic mix of asana and creative sequences and I always like to emphasise the importance of relaxation and breath awareness as part of any Yoga practice. I enjoy sharing the rich philosophy of Yoga with my students, and how it can positively impact our daily lives and our relationships. In 2013 as Yoga Alliance SYT I was accredited to deliver a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Programme, which has been a complete joy. We are currently about to launch our 100 hour Advanced Teaching Workshops and CPD, life just gets better!

Yin, Vinyasa Yoga & Kids
Meine Klassen drehen sich darum die Sinne zu beleben, die Seele zu inspirieren und um die Förderung meiner Studenten, die tieferen Schichten des Selbst zu entdecken, ihre positive Energie in ihrem Leben anzuwenden. Mit einem Hintergrund in Tanz, Bewegung und Energieheilung, verwende ich auch Musik und ätherische Öle - das bringt Balance und Fließfähigkeit für den Körper, Geist und Seele.
Ich bin eine eingetragene RYT 200 Lehrerin in der Yoga Alliance UK, bestanden mit 300 Stunden Affinity Yoga Lehrerausbildung, in Vinyasa und Yin und vollendeter Kinderlehrerausbildung von Jo Manuel of Special Yoga.
Vor dem Yoga, während ich in Los Angeles war, arbeitete ich in der Marketing Unterhaltungsindustrie für die großen Filmgesellschaften im Anschluss an meine Karriere als Immobilienunternehmerin. Aber es war Yoga, dass meine Aufmerksamkeit nach innen kehrte, mich wirklich um mich und meine Familie zu kümmern, ein schöneres und ausgeglichenes Leben zu leben. Ich hatte schon immer eine Interesse an einem ganzheitlichen Lebensstil, der mich gezwungen hat, anderen zu helfen, das förderte meine Leidenschaft zur Unterstützung eines positiven und gesunden Wohlbefindens. Ich bin zutiefst dankbar für all die Lehrer auf meiner langen Reise, vor allem meine zwei kleinen Kinder.
"Ich liebe, dass Wellicous von einer Mutter und Yogini gegründet wurde.
