Marco Aicardi

Marco Aicardi

Marco Aicardi first discovered meditation and Yoga 12 years ago, while backpacking around India.

After an initial time playing around with different styles, he found the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, and immediately felt a deep connection with that practice, making it his own sadhana.
In 2013 he completed a 500 hour teacher-training course in Rishikesh and since then he strives to make all aspects of Yoga his full-time occupation.

Currently he spends the winter months in India practising and studying (in Mysore and Rishikesh among other places), and teaching in Gokarna (coastal Karnataka), while in summer he organizes retreats and teaches in various places across Europe.

Gentle and precise adjustments, flexible and personalized approach to the sequence, and a patient and compassionate outlook are the defining traits of his teaching style.

Ximena Tavares Saavedra is a dancer, choreographer and yoga teacher.

Ximena Tavares Saavedra

She started practising Yoga 15 years go and since her very first class she could recognize it as a healthy and enjoyable instrument to work with while exploring the possibilities of body and mind.

As a teacher she is inspired by the sense of freedom that dance brings, the anatomic tools of the somatic techniques, and the ancient wisdom of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system to provide her students with a judgment-free space to explore themselves through their Yoga practice.

Intuitive and sensitive to the needs of others, she leads a practice whereby one can embody oneself with love, compassion and acceptance.

She travels yearly to India to deepen her practice and acquire new teaching skills.

Ximena and Marco met in India and are now a couple in life, in the practice of Yoga and in the teaching path.
