We train our own Yoga teachers. For this reason they can not only correct your postures and breathing practices, but they can make you much more, a Yoga Teacher.
Our courses emphasize pedagogy. Thus our teachers have an excellent reputation. Ask your teacher where they trained. If it was not with us, then find a teacher who did 'Yoga formación' and received an AIPYS diploma teacher with us.Experience the difference for yourself.
We believe that yoga is a tool which fosters a healthy relationship to ourselves and to each other. Our teachers are here to provide a safe space for you to explore the dialogue between body and mind, thought and feeling, awareness and action.
Integrity, respect and profound understanding, with a post post-modern pluralist perspective free of dogmatism.

I have been continuously learning and practicing at Yoga Center Madrid and I'm happy to share what I have learned with my students, from whom I also learn daily. I eventually trained as a Hatha Yoga Teacher, Ashtanga Vinyasa and as a Vinyasa Flow Instructor with AIPYS and did workshops with highly regarded teachers such as Peter Sanson, Liz Lark and Lino Miele.
For over twelve years I was inspired by the dedication and passion to enrich the experience of YOGA.
I completed Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with AIPYS in 2006, and that same year received my Mat Pilates Instructor Diploma. Chrystiani, is one of the most creative of Iyengar and Hatha Yoga styles.

In my childhood I competed for years as a gymnast in high competition. Afterwards I looked for a balanced discipline that respected body and mind without competition. That's when I discovered Yoga. It resulted in my taking the 500 hour Teacher Training at AIPYS and the joy of sharing Yoga with others as a teacher.
I have practiced hatha yoga since 2004. It has helped me find peace of mind, emotional balance and health. I trained as a Hatha Yoga Teacher with AIPYS, and I am currently continuing with more studies.
