Ashtanga yoga is a system of yoga transmitted to the world by Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya (1888 – 1989) It is a dynamic method of sequenced postures linked with breath and concentration techniques. ​

Here we teach and lead the first and second series of postures. The class is open to all levels.  We work one-on-one with beginners to teach correct breathing and posture sequence. Our aim is to bring the magic of yoga to your day and help you begin to memorize the series so that you may continue your own personal practice beyond the class. 

Ashtanga Yoga is our foundation here at Tertsa Yoga, we love the philosophy and the practice.

"As a child I always knew I wanted to grow up and travel. I was a restless and eager to grow up, curious about what life was really all about. So after studying linguistics in my home-town of Leuven, Belgium I packed a backpack and hit the road.

I loved the sense of awe at every new landscape I saw, each one more beautiful than the other. I loved the feeling that I was small in a large world, a world filled with the unknown that would quench my curiosity.

After travelling throughout Europe, I found my way to India, a land full of magic and mystery. In 1986, I met Danny Paradise in Goa, a handsome man with a guitar in his hands who was singing songs and telling tales. Danny introduced me to the Ashtanga Yoga practice and to Cliff Barber who became my mentor and teacher. Yoga soon became an integrated part of my daily life, bringing me balance and keeping me centered. 

When Cliff moved to the island of Crete, it was only natural that I would follow. The wild nature of the island enthralled me and while I kept on traveling, I made Crete my base. I eventually made my way to Tertsa and immediately fell in love with the small village and its inhabitants.

Tertsa is now my permanent home and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my yoga practice with everyone

who lives or visits this small hidden paradise.

I consider Yoga the greatest gift I ever received, and I am deeply grateful to everyone who made me who I am as a yoga teacher today.  Thank you Danny, Rolf, Gili, Miri, Andrew and Raphael for being in my life. Deep loving thanks to Cliff for being my inspiration.
