Amy Patsalides

Amy became a graphic designer shortly after discovering yoga eight years ago. She attributes this discovery with giving her the faith in herself to quit her job and achieve something she had always wanted to do, but had been to afraid to try. You could say that she knows something about overcoming fear of failure, and has done so with a yoga practice as her main support. She trained in Tantric Hatha yoga and Reiki, and began teaching therapeutic Yin, continuing to be fascinated with traditional yoga principles and how they can be applied in the modern world.

Katarina Rayburn

From a degree in physics to training and working as an actress in London, teaching yoga full time has given Katarina a new lease of life and she has not looked back. Discovering the dynamic practice of Rocket yoga, Katarina was hooked. For the last 3 years, she has made an annual trip to India to deepen her own practice and to continue her training. She has trained in many styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Rocket, Yin, and most recently Mandala Vinyasa, working closing with Shamanic traditions and philosophies.

Alice Jackson

Alice believes deeply in the power of yoga to shine a light on your limitless possibilities so you can uncover your full potential, and is constantly in awe at the transformative nature of yoga. Through her personal practice, she has developed a stronger connection not only to her true self, but her environment and those around her. Teaching from an intuitive and nurturing place, Alice always invites students to connect and tune in as they move.

Leo Oppenheim

Leo is a multi discipline instructor specializing in balance and core stability. His journey into movement began with skating, traversed through balance board and slacklining, and has ultimately landed him on the yoga mat. He’s convinced that movement lies at the heart of everything we do, and credits yoga with providing the only element that was missing, flexibility. Leaving male ego and athletic ability at the door, yoga taught him that cardiovascular activity did not necessarily equate to flexibility, nor did it give him the space to explore his own well-being.

It was a completely wonderful retreat - Amy was available before and during for every question or need and Adam's teaching pitched at just the right level. In every class we spent time working on both strength and stretch, breaking down asanas and improving technique and awareness. Adam is definitely a teacher that will leave you feeling inspired. The riad itself is BEAUTIFUL with lots of ornate and local touches - beautiful rugs and pottery. Doing yoga outside was also such a treat! And although the weather was warm being up the mountain gave a much fresher feel so we weren't overheating. Overall a wonderful experience which I would definitely repeat!

Dean Young

Akasha Yoga Life website

This was my first ever yoga retreat, and I was traveling alone, so I was nervous on many fronts…will I keep up, will I get on with everyone, will I connect with the teacher... The Akasha team had clearly designed the retreat with these thoughts in mind. There was a real focus on embracing your own practice level and creating a class environment that allowed you to either stay here or build on this. There was also a focus on allowing the group to naturally form friendships - no 'forced fun.' I was really impressed by the way the teacher (Adam Hustler) accurately read the mood and energy level of the group before each class and pitched it at that level - plus a little bit more for those that wanted to explore their practice further.
