The Ibiza Bija Yoga Alliance 200-hour Teacher Training Course is an intensive, residential course led by Jacqueline Purnell BWY FCT, E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Teacher. The three week course leads to a professional qualification which reflects ancient values at work in the modern world, where professionalism and the yoga of the Sanskrit scriptures meet.

The friendships and camaraderie engendered by the demanding schedule makes the process very uplifting and you will learn how to teach with confidence. Yogashala Ibiza teachers are accredited by the Yoga Alliance and our yoga teacher training programs comply with the standards established by the Alliance.  

Meet the teachers:

Judith Secanell 

Judith has grown up with modern and contemporary dance, and gymnastics. It has always been her passion and is a life long commitment. Her body is her focus, and to enhance her skills and abilities, she is now a yoga teacher.

She learnt her first “sun salutation” in Art Dramatic School where she studied to be an actress and then where she graduated from university (Cinema). After college she performed in many theatres across Spain, and has worked in TV roles and independent Spanish films and is still very active in productions as an actress and dancer, particularly in Musicals. Judith’s first Yoga experience was in Barcelona many years ago, with Kundalini Yoga, where she studied under “Laia Espot”.

For the past five years Judith has immersed herself in daily yoga practice and has studied with various teachers and types of yoga including Vinyasa, Kundalini, Hatha Dinamic and Asthanga. Her passion for Dance, Gymnastics, Theatre and Yoga, (and her passion for life and body improvement) recently took her to New York where she studied Yoga and became a certified Yoga Teacher.

For Judith, Yoga provides the perfect grounding in life and helps maintain calm in our busy city lives and has really enjoyed the transition from the Gym to the Yoga mat. She studied a 200 hour course of Vinyasa Yoga at the New York based “Three Sisters Yoga School” and recently graduated under the guidance of Jen Whinnen Vinyasa Style.

She is now a certified Vinyasa Yoga Teacher and Hatha Dinamic by the Yoga Alliance.

Yoga has given her a new found awareness and connection with her body, mind and spirit and it is this awareness and connection that she wants to share and pass on to her students. She believes that it is important to live a life full of passion and love, and her classes are bursting full of this. She loves the sense of community that yoga brings and she is grateful to be able to share it with her students. With humor and creative sequencing, her classes explore the efficiency of movement from pose to pose, focused on alignment, breath and interesting techniques. The choreographer in her has resulted in her creating innovative and unique “Vinyasa Sequences”.
