We have many teachers in store for you this summer. Coming from far afield and keen to offer their own take on the various dynamic styles of yoga available these days. Our schedule is pretty much full now and below are the dates of each teacher along with a brief biography and some words to describe what a class with any given teacher will be like. Most teachers stay for around two to three weeks which makes staying with us long term very interesting from the point of view of immersing yourself in the teachings of many great yoga teachers.
Please read the biography of your chosen week so you are familiar with the style and form of your teacher.
The level of yoga is mixed general which is designed to suit a student of all levels from beginner to intermediate.

We have photos of the first five teachers on our line up but photos will not be available on the web until the summer please email email@example.com for email of photos.
24th August to 7th Septemeber 2019
My classes are warm, welcoming, accessible; full of breath, mindful movement, creative flows, stillness, and relaxation. I encourage patience, awareness, exploration and being kind to oneself.
When appropriate I like to include extras such as circle ceremonies, partner yoga, chanting, in-depth breath work, philosophy discussions, themes, intention setting, journaling, mantras, mudras, guided meditation/ relaxation, free dance, and Qigong.
My classes are very accessible! Yoga is for all and I offer alternatives and challenges, allowing both beginners and experienced practitioners to work at a level that is right for them.
My teaching style is calm, happy, nurturing and lighthearted. I delight in sharing yoga and genuinely love getting to know and supporting the students who attend my classes.
Teaching 2nd to 7th June and again 16th to 21st June 2019
Shaka has been practicing yoga for over 10 years and has training in Hatha yoga and an MA in Yoga philosophy and history. Her own personal practice is in Ashtanga and Iyengar, all of which influence her teaching style. Shaka has a holistic approach to teaching, aiming to explore the fundamental principles of yoga through posture, breath, relaxation, and meditation. Her classes simultaneously build flexibility, strength, enhance relaxation and provide a sense of wellbeing. Each class builds slowly on the previous, with the aim of bringing a sense of connection, so that students can reconnect with themselves and reawaken the sacred space within their heart, body, mind, and soul.'
Teaching for the first two weeks of October 2019
I am a 500hr certified Yoga teacher (200hr Vinyasa Flow in 2014 with Mollie Morris McClelland and 300hr Traditional Hatha Yoga in 2018 with Ayuryoga Ashram in Mysore. I teach both Vinyasa flow & Hatha with a particular focus on the power of the breath. My classes include elements of philosophy, pranayama, kriyas, meditation as well as chanting. As a student of Yoga I am constantly studying and developing and I have just finished a 40hr teacher training with Suzanne Faith.
My way of teaching Yoga has been inspired by many teachers over the years from different traditions: Krishnamacharya, Ashtanga, Tantra and Sivananda. Besides focusing on studying Hatha Yoga (as in asana, pranayama, kriyas, meditation), I also started dedicating myself to Bhakti Yoga. I have recently finished my 200hr ‘Learn to lead Kirtan’ Teacher Training with the wonderful Nikki Slade, who deeply transformed me in my practice and enriched me as a teacher.
I am currently on a beautiful self-discovery journey with my mentor Lucy McCarthy and continue attending workshops and training to expand my practice and craft.
Vedic chanting is another passion of mine. I have the privilege to study that with my dear teacher Swami Prabodh Chaithanya.
I am extremely thankful to all my teachers who have been sharing their knowledge and experience with me over the years: Mollie McClelland, Lucy Crisfield, Carl Hargreaves, Lucy McCarthy, Nikki Slade, Swami Prabodh Chaithanya, Vinod Kumar and Suzanne Faith.

Teaching Mixed Level . Last two weeks of May 2019
Maija is a certified ashtanga yoga teacher from Amsterdam. She is regularly teaching Ashtanga,power and hatha yoga at several fitness centres.
Her classes are based on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with use of softer elements like yin yoga. Meditation is an important aspect of Maija's classes.
Class usually starts with a meditation/ breathing excersise. Then a soft warming up of the spine follows and after that sun salutations. With beginners the start is easy and slowly increasing the power and speed. Beginner classes are base on the modified ashtanga series or variations to it.
"The nice thing about a 3 hour class is the possibility of picking up a theme- like (baby)backbends/forward bends/twists/inversions- and opportunity to take time to explain and try out the Asanas step by step… and the next day to pick another theme to highlight."
After savasana it's time for meditation. Vipassana meditation is particularly nice after yoga practice. This is sometimes replaced by chakra meditations -visualising,depending on the group.
The music is sometimes used in her classes too.
Lindsay will teach a mixed level class ~ Villa Roca & Pagoda Garden ~ first two weeks of May 2019
Lindsay is a devoted yogini, teacher and lover of life, known for her reassuring authenticity and emotional depth. Practicing yoga from an early age, she went on to merge her passion for yoga and healing through earning her MA degree in Holistic Health. She has now spent many years teaching people to slow down and to become present, empowering her students to look within themselves to find the wisdom that they seek. Her home base is on Maui, Hawaii, where she weaves the gentle beauty of the island around her into daily life, where the warm winds, waterfalls and ocean constantly reflect the nature of embodied presence.
Lindsay recieved her first yoga alliance teacher training certification in 2004 at Yoga On Main in Philadelphia. Continuing her training in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, she completed a comprehensive 650-hour program, integrating somatic psychology with key principles of yoga.
More recently, Lindsay has continued her studies of yoga with her teacher, Tias Little, through Prajna Yoga School, completing a 500-hour yoga teaching certification . Rooted in Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga, as well as Buddhist meditation, Prajna yoga classes weavetogether mindfulness of breath, heart and mind through intelligent sequencing, alignment and the wisdom traditions.
With much gratitude and lightheartedness, Lindsay’s classes integrate a blend of all of her training into a vinyasa style class suited for all levels. With warmth and compassion,
she provides a supportive atmosphere that holds space for insight and integration to naturally occur, offering a contemplative, deep and breath centered practice.
Federica will be teaching a mixed level class at Villa Roca / Pagoda Garden 1st - 13th July and the 9th - 21st Sept.
I first experienced yoga three years ago. At first, I was just curious and thought I could use it to complement my fitness routine (gym and pole dancing) – I saw it as nothing more than a series of postures and stretching exercises, which could help me develop strength and flexibility and increase muscular length. Because my initial approach was mainly physical, I chose to practice Ashtanga, which I found dynamic and engaging.
The more I practiced, the more I realized that yoga is something else. I learned the importance of breathing, understood the connection between breathing and movement, and discovered that practicing yoga opens our energetic channels as well as our minds, helping us to reach higher levels of consciousness. Physical exercise is just a way in which we access our spiritual dimension.
After practicing for two years, I decided to deepen my knowledge of Ashtanga by spending one month in Goa, India, to study and practice in a yoga school. My training included philosophy, anatomy, alignment, pranayama and meditation techniques. At the end of my month in India, I received the Yoga Alliance 200-hour certificate, which allows me to teach. Following my experience in Goa, yoga has become more than a physical practice for me. It’s become a state of mind, a way of living and interacting with the world.
Even though when I am on my own I practice Ashtanga, which gives me discipline and helps me to stay focused, I usually teach Dynamic Vinyasa flow classes (influenced by Ashtanga). I like Vinyasa Flow because it gives me the opportunity to use my creativity and focus on specific parts of the body.
The goal of my yoga classes is to guide people towards a healthy lifestyle, mental peace and a deeper level of physical fitness. It’s all about developing the body-mind-spirit awareness.
I am based in Milan, Italy, where I teach individuals and groups at both beginner and intermediate levels. For each of my classes, I plan and design integrated and balanced lessons that take into account my students’ experience, physical ability and specific requests. Of fundamental importance is assisting them in postures, helping to find their perfect pose, always keeping their bodies safe during the practice.
Teaching a mixed level ~ September 2018 at Villa Roca and Pagoda Garden
To me, Yoga is a philosophy, a way of life and also a healing method for
body, mind and soul.
I want to offer my students a way to strengthen their bodies, calm their
minds and create healing from within. I teach beginning, intermediate and
My life has brought me to Yoga eight years ago.
Apart from an anatomical focus and correct alignment in the asanas,
becoming more aware and existing in this world with an open heart is what
is important to me. I teach Yoga to communicate awareness and love, instead
of fear. Meditation and mindfulness - instead of hurry and greed.
I understand Yoga in the classic sense oft he Sutras as the interaction of all
the eight limbs and have been studying the yogic literature for a long time
now. I have been teaching Yoga in Milan, India and California.
Recently, I have completed the advanced 500 hours teacher training in
beautiful Agonda, India, where I could further deepen my teaching
experience in terms of anatomical focuses and connect to the great
spirituality of India.
My teaching styles reach from Vinyasa Flow to Low Flow and Yin. I am
happy to lead workshops both on condition based yoga, teach specific targetgroups and teach on philosophical and spiritual topics.
