Wouter Smit - Meet the Teachers

Wouter's mission is for everyone he teaches to be able to access the realm of the heart. The heart is the seat of the soul. Living in close connection to our hearts, means a connected life of fulfillment, the only life truly worthy of your time. He teaches with special sets of pranayama (breathing exercises) to empty the mind, and make student teachers more receptive to the soft voice of their hearts. Then Wouter will guide you through a series of slow although intense series of Vinyasa Flows of intermediate postures, to wake up the entire physical body and to learn how to feel deeply into the body. Finally student teachers will sink deep into their hearts, drawing new power from the divine source within, revitalizing batteries and gaining new insights into the workings of the heart. Wouter Smit’s aim is to lead you from the personal realm to yoga. With smooth flowing sequences of asanas on inspiring music, lot’s of attention will be given to the actual meeting of the steady, happy posture. Convinced that the world will become a more beautiful place when people live from their hearts, he will encourage you to find your heart and develop the power to stand for it.

Jivamukti Teacher Nora Heilman Teaches at The Garden of Joy Ibiza

Yogashala Ibiza Presents Nora Heilman Jivamukti Workshops at the Garden of Joy Ibiza

Jacqueline Purnell and Nora Heilman are both certified Jivamukti yoga teachers and continue to study the Jivamukti Yoga method, created by Sharon Gannon and David Life in 1984. Nora is an 800-hr certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and former dance artist / choreographer. A traveling yogi, she teaches classes, workshops and retreats internationally.

Nora will be holding workshops at the Garden of Joy in Ibiza on Sunday 2nd, Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th June 2013. Nora's workshops invite students to deeply investigate the direct experience of movement and life; and to experiment with the full range of yogic tools, from vigorous asana to the study of sacred texts, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and deep listening. An essential aspect of the yoga practice is a vegan lifestyle, which embodies the principle of non-violence and compassion for all beings. Nora loves to share the magical art of yoga with anyone who longs for transformation, greater kindness, and spiritual activation.

Originally German, Nora studied and lived in Amsterdam for many years, where she taught yoga and movement research at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO), Svaha Yoga Shala and The Movement Practice. She still guest teaches yoga and dance at the summer semester of the NYU Tisch School of The Arts in Amsterdam every year. 

Nora offers her deepest gratitude to her teachers and spiritual guides: Sharon Gannon, David Life, her mentor Jessica Stickler, Tamar Samir, Monica Jaggi, Clive Sheridan, Richard Freeman, Adyashanti, and all the students who dedicate their time and energy to the practice of yoga, keeping this ancient tradition alive in the here and now. She would like to offer the knowledge that has been made available to her with the wish that all beings may be happy and free from suffering. Jacqueline met Tamar Samir and Jessica Stickler (nora's mentor) at Jivamukti in New York in 2012. Tamar and Nora will both be resident teachers at the Jivamukti Yoga School Berlin.

  Nora's workshops start at 7pm at the Garden of Joy Ibiza on Sunday 2nd, Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th June 2013 and are 90 mins per session. 

€45 per person for the 3 days or €20 drop in. To reserve a place please call Jacqueline on 00 34 689619141 or you can book via email by clicking this link: contact us.

Stefania Barker: Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Ibiza May 26th 2012


Born in Rome, Italy, Stefania has studied yoga for over eleven years. In 2008 Stefania gained The British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Diploma after studying under Jacqueline Purnell.
Jacqueline Purnell BritishWheel of Yoga Diploma Course Tutor & Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher 500 for the Yoga Alliance.

Stefania's Testimonial about Jacqueline after her BWY Teacher Training:

“I have known Jacqueline for a number of years now; as my interest in yoga deepened, my appreciation of Jacqueline's value as a yoga teacher grew exponentially. I had practiced yoga with several different teachers when the time came I decided I wanted to be a teacher too; my choice of Jacqueline as my tutor was easy because I could clearly see she was the 'real deal'. Her knowledge of yoga in all its aspects is vast and her teaching style is adaptable to all levels of students, so that everybody attending her classes benefits in some way. The BWY Teacher Training Course I started over 2 years ago is drawing to an end. Jacqueline has made it thoroughly enjoyable through her varied teaching methods, constant support and by creating a very friendly atmosphere in the group. I am now confident I can teach yoga and enjoy doing so, forever striving to raise my standards closer to those of my dear tutor Jacqueline.”

After Jacqueline had introduced her to her beloved Teacher's Sharon and David the founders of Jivamukti Yoga in 2006, Stefania was inspired to follow in Jacqueline's footsteps and acquire their Teacher Training.

In 2010 she studied at the Omega Institute in New York with Sharon Gannon and David Life, gaining the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Certification. Her classes are in a challenging vinyasa style (flowing asana sequences) to music, and incorporate breathing, meditation and deep relaxation.

David and Sharon also studied closely with Jacqueline's Guru known as Guruji: Shri Pattabhi Jois who taught the Astanga Vinyasa Tradition of Yoga at his home in Mysore India and was responsible through his tireless teaching for bringing Astanga Vinyasa to the west.

Stefania Barker will be teaching alongside Jacqueline Purnell and Chris James on the Yogashala Ibiza Teacher Training Course in June 2012. If you fancy a 'taster' for the course then why not attend a class or workshop with Stefania at The Garden Studio, 1a Overdale Road in South Ealing, W5.

For more information please contact us or email Stefania at beherenowyoga@hotmail.co.uk

Headstand Workshops in Ibiza

Headstands and Shoulder Stands, otherwise known as inverted asanas or poses, are the mother and father of all yoga asanas; the shoulder stand Sarvangasana being the mother and headstand Sirsasana, the father. In the ancient Sanskrit texts, along with the lotus Padmasana, they are considered the most important yoga asanas and are energetically opposite.

Headstands develop our masculine qualities; heat the body, stimulate the nervous system, tone the neck muscles and stimulate the mind, and shoulder stands develop our feminine qualities; neutralize the body and calm the nervous system. However, both asanas allow the blood to flow from the heart without the force of gravity, thus without strain and therefore clean, healthy blood is allowed to circulate around the neck and chest. The change in gravitational pull on the body affects the abdominal organs so that the bowels move freely and constipation is relieved. They are soothing to the nervous system and good to practice when one is tense, upset, and nervous or feeling irritated. The weight of the abdominal organs on the diaphragm initially gives a sense of constriction; with practice however this physiological inversion encourages deep breathing, which in turn gently massages the internal organs and the contemplation one feels helps calm the mind. A little time spent upside down everyday gives us the opportunity to feel happier and more confident.

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT A HEADSTAND WHEN YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN IF YOU ARE NEW TO YOGA or at least not within your first couple of years of practice. To do this asana it is vital to have at least the weekly guidance of a trained teacher to ensure you are not compounding any mistakes. Working closely with an experienced teacher you will allow the spine to become properly aligned, improve posture and facilitate good breathing. If you want to invest more time in headstands then you must ensure you have the most highly qualified and experienced teacher available. To find your nearest teacher go to our About Us page on the Yogashala Ibiza website and click on the BWY teacher logo or click here to go straight to the BWY website and enter your postcode in the box on the homepage. It may be worth emailing a variety of teachers and ask their views as some will be more experienced than others. It may even be worth investing in a one to one. Also check with your GP that you have no conditions that would contradict.

How to do a Headstand 

Firstly place a yoga mat or a folded blanket on the floor to pad your head and forearms. Kneel on the floor and keeping your feet on the ground, interlock your fingers, placing your forearms on the floor with your elbows directly under your shoulders and shoulder width apart. Press the wrists firmly into the floor and roll the upper arms outwards then place the top of your head on the floor making sure the back of your head is resting against the palms of the hands.

Inhale, and then with your toes on the floor lift your knees up off the floor keeping your legs straight. To continue with this asana please make sure you have your teacher present. Check with your teacher and when your teacher feels you are ready to perform a headstand in class this is then how you would proceed…

Exhale and slowly lift both feet up at the same time keeping the weight evenly balanced between the two forearms. A fail safe mechanism to ensure you can lift into this asana safely is if your abdominals are powerful enough to lift both knees whilst squeezed together. Squeeze the inner knees as if holding a sheet of paper between them. Refrain from using walls, corners where walls meet or other props as they can disguise poor alignment. Your cervical spine is so precious so we must be vigilant and extremely careful. To avoid kicking the legs up, another fail safe mechanism is to draw your knees up above your pelvis before straightening your legs again making sure your knees are firmly squeezed together. When the legs are fully lengthened push up through the big toes and stay for 10 seconds. Exhale and very slowly come down the same way as you went up, knees squeezed together, working your abdominals and to be sure both feet touch the floor at the same time.

To gain the confidence to start your headstand practice Yogashala Ibiza offer weekend Headstand Workshops at their eco-friendly yoga centre in Ibiza where experienced and highly qualified tutors work with students on a one-2-one basis. The next Headstand Workshop is Sat 11th & Sun 12th May 2011. For more information on availability and prices go to the Costs & Dates page on the Yogashala Ibiza website

Benefits Of Yoga

One of the most important things when embarking on a new slimming and fitness regime is that your mind remains positive and healthy. As we all know, yoga helps to achieve and maintain a positive, focused, calm and controlled state of mind - but what exactly can we gain physically from this wonderful ancient yet powerful practice of Yoga?

On a physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have proven to be extremely effective for various disorders as well as being a fantastic way to achieve a beautifully sculpted and healthy body. Yoga is the only ancient workout that tones your body not just on the outside but from deep in the inside. When you practice yoga it works deeply on many different parts of your inner body massaging all your vital organs therefore helping to detoxify and thoroughly cleanse your system, clearing out blockages and helping in the smooth flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients. Yoga is also extremely effective in increasing flexibility, increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons and is excellent at toning all of the muscles.

Yoga through MEDITATION helps the mind to work in sync with the body enabling people to achieve extraordinary physical feats, which proves beyond doubt the power of the mind and body connection. Stress is a number one killer yet can be corrected through meditation alone.

The meditative practices through yoga help in achieving an emotional balance through DETACHMENT. What it means is that meditation detaches you from your immediate surroundings, it is a state in which a person overcomes his or her attachment to desire for things, people or concepts of the world and thus attains a heightened perspective which in turn creates a remarkable calmness and a positive outlook.

The ancient yogis practised yoga and meditation for self realization (or enlightenment) for very long periods of time. This required tremendous physical fitness, energy and the ability to survive on next to nothing. The yoga asanas (or postures) helped to put controlled and systematic pressure on the various glands and internal organs located in their bodies. This stimulated and regulated their body’s hormone production. A healthy hormone balance naturally helps you to stay fit and active.

The daily practice of Pranayama (breathing exercises) and Dhyana (meditation) is considered to be very beneficial along with the yoga asanas as they compliment each other and give you amazing results when done correctly. The yoga asanas are done in a flowing or slow systematic movement and the key is in holding the pose for a longer duration while you balance yourself without straining.

Yoga stretches, tones and strengthens your spine, internal organs and all your muscles giving you a beautifully sculpted body that not only looks great but is healthy as well. You also feel energetic and fresh yet calm and peaceful. Your skin and hair shines with health as it makes your entire system clean and optimized to the best level.
