Meet our Yoga & Meditation teachers

Yoga del Mar was founded in July 2021 by Nina-Gyana and Yasmin, since then a wonderful team of yoga teachers, massage therapists and coaches has come together. Each individual contributes with their warm and open hearted nature, to make Yoga del Mar a home for body, mind and soul.


NINA-GYANA (CO-FOUNDER)

My name is Nina-Gyana, I am a certified Yoga and Meditation teacher, and trained GFG-Doula®. I have been involved with Yoga for many years and can truly say that this life practice has changed my mind, body, and everyday life. My journey has led me to Bali, Australia, and to an ashram in India, where I learned and practiced Yoga and Meditation, with the help of Masters and great teachers. In my classes the focus is on present moment awareness, to tune into the body and out of the mind, and to strengthen the muscle of attention - your ability to be present, here and now.

„Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.“

YASMIN (CO-FOUNDER)

I’m Yasmin and I grew up on the island of Mallorca. I'm a certified Ashtanga & Vinyasa Yoga & Meditation teacher and discovered Yoga while teaching children at a local NGO in Tanzania in 2007. There I found an Ashtanga book in a little shop in Dar Es Salaam and I started to practice the Ashtanga Primary Series. From that self-practice I discovered and started to train in different styles of Yoga with wonderful teachers in Costa Rica, South Africa, London, Berlin, Ibiza & Mallorca. The practice of Yoga has taught me how to approach life with an open heart and a positive attitude.

In my Yoga classes I create a deep rhythm between movement and breath and I guide my students through creative sequences. I delicately weave in the philosophy of Yoga into the asana practice, incorporating my love for chanting mantras as well as the wisdom of Ayurveda. I enjoy creating a safe and loving atmosphere to increase your overall well-being, sharing the love for what Yoga develops in each individual and inspiring everyone to find their unique potential through their practice.

STUART (YOGA TEACHER)

I believe that a yoga practice is a journey of embodiment. When we get intimate with our bodies, our emotions, and our mindset we can learn everything we need to create the story of our lives in a fulfilling and meaningful way.

The practice I teach students is only what I’ve embodied. I pull from all of the trainings and learning I have done over the years, nothing is off limits. I create my classes with the utmost care and intention.

My goal is to empower you physically and mentally and use the microcosm of the mat to bring you fully into the present moment. With awareness and presence magic happens.

Stuart teaches Yoga Sessions and offers Thai Massage at Yoga del Mar.


MARA (YOGA TEACHER)

Hi, I am Mara. Growing up between two continents, Yoga has always been my saving grace.

The consistence of practice is the red thread connecting the different parts of my life together.

Being my steady companion through the many waves of life, the mat was always my healing place, and that is the space I try to hold in my classes- in order for each student to come home to their body and connect with their soul.

Excited to see you on the mat!

Namaste, Mara


DAVID LUREY (YOGA TEACHER & MUSICIAN)

I am David and I have been practicing Yoga since 1995 and teaching full time in 2000. With influences in Vinyasa flow, mixed movement as well as alignment practices, I also weave integrated philosophy and music into each unique class. I was born in the USA and have lived on Mallorca since 2008.

For me, Yoga means a conscious exploration of body, intellect, emotion & spirit as well their interconnectedness.

My ability to 'read the room' and teach the class to the students who are there makes his classes a unique experience.

Oh, I try to tell funny jokes too :)


MARIA (YOGA TEACHER)

I started practicing and teaching Yoga & Meditation in 1989. It was my path out of debilitating grief after losing my father and my way into a consistent relationship with the Divine. The ancient practices of Yoga continue to help me heal the samskaras or triggers that cause emotional reactivity in my relationships. My daily practice of Yoga and Meditation is my path out of my mind's limited perspective and back into a creative space of co-creation with the Divine.

I want to share with you how the yogic ancient practices will set you free in body and mind to create the life you dream of.


MAYA (YOGA TEACHER)

I am Maya, a certified Vinyasa and Yin Yoga Teacher, as well as a professional contemporary dancer. Yoga brings me clarity and balance, creating a safe space to explore who I am and who I am meant to be.

My Vinyasa classes follow a dynamic and active rhythm, moving through breath in a state of mindfulness and connection. The sequences are powerful, creative and playful, almost transforming the Asanas into a dance. We always move towards a deeper embodied state of self, working with meditation, pranayama and yogic philosophy.


MIRA (YOGA TEACHER)

Yoga for me is the path of truth and love. The reunion of head and heart, body and soul.

It shows me who I am and in which direction I want to go right now.

Finding a creative way to express yourself‘s inner life is what makes the Yoga practice of every individual person unique and special. Yoga gives us freedom and satisfaction because it unites us with others and with the present moment.


MICHELLE (YOGA TEACHER & MARKETING)

My name is Michelle and I like to simply introduce myself as human.

While I am aware that we all come from different backgrounds, nationalities and cultures, or in one word conditionings, I found my way to Yoga to reconnect with the deeper, underlying essence that we all share in common by simply being part of the humane existence.

My Yoga classes convey the message of being part of a shared humanity by creating coherence between the body, mind and our inner presence. I believe that we all have a beautiful light within us and I am here to share my light with the world and encourage you to do the same. Come to my classes and expect a sweet challenge leading you back to the divinity of the present moment.


BERENICE (YOGA TEACHER)

For me, movement means an attitude towards life. It is the connection between the personal inner world and our perception on the outside. Through my professional career in sports and fitness, my path led me to yoga. I visited an ashram for 3 months in 2008 to understand the depth of yoga.

The leadership of spirituality tempted me to get to know yoga in other facets. For this reason, I learned the ways of yoga in 4 different yoga teacher trainings. Including Ashtanga Yoga (India), Jivamukti Yoga (New York), Sivananda Yoga (Himalaya) and BUDOKON Yoga (Miami).

My teaching style is with light choreography and different movements. To solve the thoughts and to create a playful relationship between you and your body. Let’s play and access to your higher being.

„The way you move, the way you think“
