philosophy
 

Almudena follows the Jivamukti Method in her classes, incorporating the five tenets that are the main foundation of this integrated and invigorating yoga style: kindness (Ahimsa), meditation (Dhyana), chanting (Bhakti), ancient scriptures (Shastra), sound (Nada).

Her classes are designed as an intermediate/intense, creative vinyasa sequence that combines movement and breathing as the linking mechanism to connect mind, body and soul, resulting in an equally grounding and elevating experience that brings about a deep sense of wellbeing, eased by hands-on alignments. Almu’s philosophy is to inspire her students to become the best version of themselves by using the yoga practice and its ancient teachings on / off the mat contributing in this way to create a better world we can all enjoy.


Almudena is deeply thankful to all her teachers Jules Febre, Lady Ruth and Acharya Yoges, mentor Doug Whittaker, Jivamukti Co- founders Sharon Gannon and David Life for all the learnings passed down as well as Cat Alip-Douglas for motivating her to keep on practicing at Jivamukti London. Likewise, she sends her blessing to all the yoga teachers that continue to inspire her journey, her family, travels and anyone that comes into her life sharing his / her light (or darkness as is certainly also an opportunity for growth!).
