How did Ashtanga Yoga Málaga come to be?

I still remember the day that I went to Ashtanga Yoga Shala in Barcelona with Elena Figarola. I had already practiced other types of yoga, like Hatha and Iyengar, but I didn’t know anything about Ashtanga.

The class already started, and I came in and sat in the back.  I remember the strong sound of breathing, the bodies shining with sweat, the silence, the continuous movements, the concentration of the people practicing.  I had never seen anything like it.  I was fascinated and started the next day…

I studied Art in Granada and was working as an interior designer in Barcelona afterwards.  After a few years practicing Ashtanga daily, my priorities began to change and I felt the need to teach Ashtanga.

I was assisting Elena for a long time before I finally started to teach classes in the Barcelona shala, and then in other yoga centers.

My next destination was Madrid where I taught at Ashtanga Yoga Madrid along with Borja Romero.

I took advantage of summers to go to Crete (Greece) to practice with Radha Warrell and Pierre Seghir in Agios Pavlos.  I attended various Ashtanga workshops with Peter Sanson (from New Zealand) which occur annually in Spain.  I try to go to Mysore (India) every year where I have been a direct student of Sri. R. Sharath Jois and Saraswati Rangaswamy in the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute.

After several years as a teacher in Ashtanga Yoga Madrid, I felt the need to have my own school, and I chose to do it in Malaga where I grew up.

Ashtanga changed my life, maybe it will also change your lives 😉

Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Namaste
