Teacher Iyengar

Paula Soares is a Iyengar Yoga teacher who loves to share what made her life brighter. In her classes she teaches details. She is always looking for the best way to reach each student.

Paula Soares discovered Yoga 15 years ago and since than yoga is part of her life. A few years after she came across Iyengar Yoga she enrolled in a teacher training at the BKS Iyengar Yoga Institute of Amsterdam with Clé Souren, Charles Hond and Anemmieke Post, while living and working in Portugal. First she wanted to deepen her practice and learn more, but soon she realized how this intensive training was changing her life!

Between Porto and Amsterdam, with yoga so deeply installed in herself and with her soulmate in Amsterdam there was no reason to stay in Porto. She left her long time profession as an Engineer  and embraced the opportunity to teach and share her passion for yoga with others.

Travelling to Pune and studying with the Iyengar family was a turning point in her practice. She is certified as a Intermediate Junior I level, continue her practice in the BKS Iyengar Yoga Institute of Amsterdam with Delilah King and study regularly with Spanish Teacher Patxi Lizardi, among other punctual workshops.

As a human being, she feels yoga is part of herself, as a student she knows that learning happily is an endless process 🙂 , and as a teacher she loves to share yoga knowledge. She is fascinated by the yoga therapeutical aspect and she loves to assist the weekly medical class in the BKS Iyengar Yoga institute along with the classes at Samana Yoga Center.
