Danai is the co-founder of Mind’s Garden, a psychotherapist, Yoga and meditation instructor from Greece. In search of a more peaceful mind, she travelled across Europe into the majestic landscapes of Finland, where she discovered her true passion — fluid body movement through Yoga and dancing. Combining her psychology background with her certification in Vinyasa Yoga and guided meditation, she aims to help people to reconnect with themselves on both conscious and subconscious level, in order to deeply relax and recharge their body and mind. She believes Yoga is a great tool to help us to rediscover our place in both our body and the world around us. She guides people through their individual paths of self-love, acceptance, overcoming of trauma and better communication with their subconscious mind.
Jen is a yoga and meditation instructor from the UK. When chronic illness left her searching for answers about the human body, it was yoga and meditation that gave her a deeper insight into the healing mechanisms of the mind and body. She’s an incredible teacher of Yin and restorative yoga, focusing on healing the body on a deeper level through calming postures that regulate the body’s flow of energy. Jen has trained in Yoga for injury prevention and rehabilitation with a focus on correct alignment for the individual. She invites people to explore and make peace with themselves, focusing on self-love to encourage unity and a sense of wellbeing.
Landy is a certified Vinyasa and Balinese traditional Watukaru Yoga and meditation teacher. She has a natural gift of listening to understand others and applies effortlessly her understanding and empathy to her teaching, or as she prefers to call it, healing through meditation, pranayama, the physical practice of Yoga and Yoga therapy. She integrates her love for literature, art and oriental philosophy & medicine into her teaching. To Landy, Yoga is a coming together of all of humanity, our beliefs, values, philosophies, perspectives and paths. She hopes that one day, all of us can rejoice in a LOVE, a LOVE beautiful & true; a LOVE for all beings; a LOVE dancing to the music of the soul.
Krishna is a traditional Balinese Watukaru Yoga and meditation teacher. She's been studying and teaching Balinese Yoga, meditation, pranayama and charka opening for the past ten years.
