Morgan Palmer Hubbard
Morgan teaches a flowing and dynamic form of yoga practice very influenced by the work of a teacher called Simon Borg-Olivier and the Yoga Synergy school, which teaches “traditional yoga for the modern body”. It is a blend of Indian, Chinese, Tibetan yogas, and Western physiotherapy. The aim is to make yoga practice safer and more effective for modern practitioners by recognizing that due to lifestyle and conditioning, the bodies of modern urban people are in some ways very different to the bodies that many traditional yoga practices were created for.

Amanda Dawn Blackley
London-born, Amanda Dawn Blackley has lived in Spain for 24 years, working previously in the field of sports communication and translation, she began to practice yoga to manage the demands of her profession, physical fatigue and stress. A more ‘yang-style’ personal yoga practice based on Ashtanga and Vinyasa, has gradually shaped itself over the years into a slower, deeper practice, incorporating longer holds within movement, as well as the quiet stillness of Yin Yoga and the practices of Mindfulness.

She took her first meditation class when she was eight years old, but didn’t start a formal practice until she was 20 years old in 2005.

She has done numerous Zen retreats with the Zen School Zambokyoda along the years. Monika is known for her ability to talk about meditation in a natural way and makes mindfulness easy and accesible to everyone.
The teacher training at Yogalinda really left me with the confidence of actually teaching Yoga myself to others. They really prepare you well and give all the essential tools you need for your practice, weather it is teaching Yoga to others or deepen your own practice. I did a 200 hr Yoga teacher training in Kerala, South India, 2 years ago and although it was an amazing personal experience, it didn't leave me with the sensation of actually being prepared to be teaching myself: the yoga-practice (Hatha Yoga) was very repetitive and didn't leave much room for experimenting other asana-sequences whereas at Yogalinda it was very diverse , not only did we constantly practice and learn new poses, correct alignment and adjusting but we're also introduced to new styles and techniques through other teachers. Also the philosophy-part was taught to us in a way that not only made it easier to understand but also explained how to apply it in your yoga-practice as a teacher, student and in your daily 'modern' life in general. Even things like Yoga-Business and how to run a studio were spoken. Apart from the amazing 'content' of the training itself, the people were incredible, not only the teachers but also the other participants. Made friends for life during these intense but rewarding 4 weeks.
So lucky to have the opportunity to join in Yogalinda Teacher Training. An amazing and intensive 200 hours training with super professional teachers. This training has inspired me just to take another step in my life! Thanks for all your support!
The Yogalinda Hot Vinyasa Training course was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. The course provides an excellent balance to all areas of yoga and has allowed me to deepen my knowledge of yoga, greatly improve my practice and at the same time calm my mind and bring awareness to my physical being. I´ll never look at yoga or my body the same way again. Two thumbs-up!
I have throughly enjoyed my training at Yogalinda. Heather and Lezanne are a fantastic team. They each bring their own personal qualities to the training. I have also really enjoyed outside teachers coming in, in particular Morgan.
The training didn't feel to pushy but at the same time was challenging. Heather and Lezanne were extremely supportive. They are refreshingly honest without being offensive which I love. The training gave me a well rounded understanding of yoga which is something I believe other trainings could be missing.
he beach location is just perfect! Literally couldn't ask for a better location. I think having a 4 week training rather than a 3 is an excellent idea. It gives you time for yourself and also time to come into the studio and take classes outside of training hours. Thank you two wonderful human beings. If I can have the ambition, have of yoga and caring heart toward your students that you two do. I´ll be happy. :) Cannot thank you enough.
You are Great. I love You! Montse, Spanish, Barcelona oct 2017
I had a great time here!! I loved it!!
I enjoyed my Yoga TT. I have learnt a lot about myself and from the 16 girls, my daily asana and I loved yoga philosophy. I look forward to further study.
Es un curso donde la adquisición de conocimientos sobre la dsciplina se hace de forma practica. De tal modo que he sentido toda la formación como un proceso natural. Han despertado mi curiosidad sobre la practica en meditación pero la más importante es que han conseguido que haya formado parte de este proceso y los efectos. Curso muy variado y completo. Totalmente recomendable.
Esperiencia intensa que ha hecho pasar por momentos en los que he tenido que salir de mi rama de comfort enfrentádome y habando de superar mis inseguridades y sobre todo con momentos de varadero placer, disfrutando de la practica y sobre todo aprendiendo. Punto de practica de lo que espere que sea un laya camino de aprendizaje y felicidad en mi practica.
Gracias heather, por enseñar tus conocimientos y compartir tu practica flow con nosotros.
