Luísa Geraldes is a certified Level II (Intermediate Junior I) IYENGAR® yoga teacher with more than ten years of teaching experience.

Luísa came across with yoga at the age of 14.

In 2010, already committed with the Yoga path, she travelled for the first time to India to deepen her knowledge of Vedānta and Yoga vision.
Since the same year, she is practicing according to the IYENGAR® yoga method.

Travels to India continued, either to learn  Vedanta directly from Swami Dayananda in Rishikesh, either to deepen her IYENGAR® yoga practice with renowned teachers like Usha Devi, Rajiv Chanchani and Zubin Zarthoshtimanesh.

In 2016 she went for the first time to study at the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute in Puna, Índia, where returned in 2019. 

For 4 years, Luísa spent half the year in India, practicing intensively with Usha Devi in Rishikesh, and sometimes  even teaching at her behest. This cycle of yearly travels to India was interrupted by the pandemic in 2020.

In Europe, Luísa studied with Christian Pisano and from 2013 to 2016 with Billy Konrad, with whom completed her IYENGAR® yoga teacher’s training.

Ido Manor from Tel Aviv, Patxi Lizard from Madrid and Jordí Marti from Barcelona have been guiding Luísa’s practice the last years.
