Namaste Shaini Verdon
My name is Shaini Verdon, I was able to make my dream come true at the Southwest coast of the Algarve, Portugal because of my passions for Yoga, Nature (Gaia), Health, surfing & Nutrition. Combining the latter with yoga and a healthy lifestyle ,for me, is the ultimate lifestyle.
My love for Yoga started 13 years ago. Ever since I have had the honor to study with great, inspirational teachers. Certifying myself as a Yoga Teacher. My roots lie mainly in the stream of Anusara & Sadhana , but I have also practiced in Iyengar, Vinyasa, Hatha and other Yoga disciplines. With this I develop my teachings and my ongoing self-practice, creating a Yoga based on a strong spiritual and aligned foundation, combining the best of all these beautiful Yoga schools.
My teaching is based on proper alignment, verbal and precise hands on adjustments, setting heart opening intentions, creating a strong Pranayama practice and bringing inner awareness into our practice. Creating a warm, safe and loving space. So it can become a spiritual practice and connection for each of my students.
Because of my passions for yoga and surf I have the fortune to teach many surfing yogis, aiming at (core) strength, flexibility and awareness both on the Yoga mat and surfboard. Currently I give weekly yoga classes and organize yoga retreats like Yoga&Surf, Yoga&Nature and Yoga,Cleanse,Restore&Renew through Yogaion. This year I have also started with an Integrative Nutrition course, so that next year I can share this healing through delicious food with you!
Joy, Love and Happiness.
I Practise Yoga at
The beach, in Nature, my home and with friends
Yoga and surfing has taking me all over the world, meeting beautiful people, amazing experiences, sharing & always learning!
