Expert Field: Yoga
Amaia began practicing Yoga at the Sivananda Center in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2004 and continued her journey during her first pregnancy in 2005. The benefits were so immediate and positive both physically and mentally that in 2007 she decided to complete a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Shanghai. In 2008 she attended the second level Teacher Training course, therefore fulfilling a 500-hour certification. She finished her training one-month before giving birth to her second child. In a continuous effort to improve her own teaching, Amaia joined in October 2010 a 9-month Yoga Anatomy course led by Leslie Kaminoff. The breath centered teachings and the comprehensive anatomy knowledge has opened a whole new dimension to her teaching, offering a better understanding of how our body spaces are interrelated and how we optimize our own body and mind energy when dealing with gravity and moving in space.
Amaia can answer any of your questions relating to your yoga practice before, during and after pregnancy.
