We are yoga teachers, guides and travel specialists and we love all three. We travel a lot, always with a yoga mat on our backs.
Since 2014, our yoga guides have been taught by Ruth White, who learnt directly with Iyengar. She has taught them how to love and teach yoga to anyone. They bring a unique style of teaching that unites pupil and teacher in an atmosphere of happiness and well-being and which enables people to see through their limitations, achieve their full potential and experience a sense of freedom. The yoga that is taught on these yoga retreats is mostly a modified Iyengar yoga with a small mix of Hatha and also Yin yoga. There will be 2 Yin yoga classes through our retreats.
Fiona has lived throughout the world, spending the majority of her adult life in Peru where she learnt about tourism and also fell in love with yoga.
Under the teaching of Ruth White (Iyengar), Tanya Wilkes (Iyengar) and Gem Maryan (Yin), she has learned the intricacies of the postures and the discipline that comes with them. She is an accomplished teacher and loves seeing someone fall in love with the practice.
Fiona has many years of experience with tourism, guiding and tour leading and has a keen eye for a great hotel or something a bit different which is what makes our luxury yoga retreats diverse. She is currently studying for her advanced yoga teacher certificate and is also qualified in Reiki 2.
Armando has always been interested in sports, the outdoors and plants. His mum is an experienced herbalist and she brought him up teaching him about the sacred plants and herbs and about how to lead an early life.
He took up yoga later in life at 36, it just made sense to him and he has a unique view on the body and how it moves. Ruth White has been his teacher and guru for over 5 years. His love of life and passion for travel have helped create these fabulous yoga retreats in Peru, Thailand and Scotland.
Armando will teach and guide us through these magical countries. He is a qualified guide having been to Machu Picchu hundreds of times. He loves both the beaches of Thailand and the mountains of Scotland the same. He lived in Peru for many years and currently resides in Glasgow.
