Antje Lewerenz

Yoga Teacher

Hey there! I'm Antje! Yoga, and its challenges, are a natural part of my daily life. I work as a freediving instructor, yoga teacher, WATSU/WATA therapist, translator, office manager and live with all this on the beautiful island of Gozo, Malta. Living very close to nature and the elements helps to get back to myself, and throws me back to myself at the same time. I stand for the classic approach to hatha yoga. You will always experience breathing exercises/pranayama and meditation along with asana in my classes. You will get to know your body better, tune in with your breathing, and you are already on your yoga path. What you experience physically on the yoga mat you can take into your daily life off the mat. The aspects of hatha yoga are actually straight forward and I encourage you to become aware of it on and off the mat: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper diet, proper rest, awareness of THAT and WHAT you think (and that you are not your thoughts).

Monique van Bemmelen

Yoga Teacher & Therapist

Hey there! I'm Monique! I am a yoga teacher from the Netherlands. I’ve studied yoga at the Saswitha Teacher Training College for Yoga and Philosophy for three years, studying hatha yoga. I have been teaching yoga several times a week since 2017, both in the Netherlands and in Gozo. In 2018 I completed a second 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training with Balasz Heller in Vinyasa Yoga (Fityoga). Fityoga is a fusion of hatha yoga and vinyasa yoga and it combines strength, flexibility and cardio, together with meditation. In spring 2019 I got certified to teach Yin Yoga at Arhanta Yoga. Yin yoga is the perfect practise to calm down the nervous system and to recharge your body and mind. I am also Yoga Alliance registered and a member of the VYN, the Dutch Yoga Association. This means that I continually educate myself further and I comply with the highest quality standards in yoga education.

Timea Laskai

Yoga Teacher

Hey there! I’m Timea! I’m originally from Hungary and I am 36 years old! Throughout my life I have always had an interest in sports, or any practice where I got to move my body! I started with aerobics and fitness when I was about 14 years old. After winning my first competition for Fittkid Hungry, I felt eager to share my love for fitness with others. At the age of 18 I completed my first fitness instructor certificate. In the years following I started diving deeply into the worlds of dance, hip hop, ballet, modern dance, and pole fitness. In 2016 I won 2nd place at my first competition in High level pole at a sport tournament in Hungary. After that my passion for competing quickly grew.<br /> After partaking in competitions rigorously for a few years, I found that it caused too much stress on my body and I was no longer in a place of love for the sport. It was then that I found teaching. I first started teaching pole at one of the biggest movement schools in Hungary and I immediately fell in love. I found that teaching gave me so much energy and I loved sharing my passion for fitness with others and watching them grow in the sport. Hearing feedback from students that loved my classes as much as I loved to teach brought me so much joy!<br /> As much as I loved fitness, as I began teaching more and more, I realized my body was in need of a more restorative practice in addition to working out, to help my body support the muscles I was overusing. That is when I found Yoga Trapeze! I immediately fell in love with Yoga Trapeze as it is so much fun to use the hammock to stretch and get into positions you wouldn’t normally be able to. I quickly became passionate about sharing this new found love with others and looked into teacher trainings! In 2018 I received my teacher training in Yoga Trapeze and started teaching. I loved how good my body felt after doing it and how it contributed to my everyday health and well being. I also found that I was able to perform better in my fitness classes and loved how it contributed to the overall support of my joints and muscles.<br /> I love Aerial Fitness because it challenges me, keeps me fit, and is SO MUCH FUN! Aerial Fitness is done in a stretchy fabric hammock while Yoga Trapeze is done in a hammock made out of a material more similar to that of a tent. The Yoga Trapeze adds much more support in the positions you’re in and also provides handles to assist you in getting into positions, while the Aerial Fitness hammock remains stretchy to allow you more freedom in your flow! Please join me I would love to have you! Beginners are ALWAYS welcome, come try something new!

Michelle Bartolo

Yoga Teacher

Michelle Bartolo has been in the fitness & health industry for 30 years and is fascinated by the human mind, body & spirit. Originally born in Malta & raised in Toronto, Canada, her yoga journey began when she noticed she was going way off balance in her late twenties. So off to Rishikesh, India, she went in 2010 into an Ashram to do a 500hr Teacher Training in Transformational Yoga. Since then, she's offered retreats, private classes, and 200 hr teacher training on an international level.</p> <p>Her classes are inspired by the Kundalini tradition, which she practiced since 2010 and taught for the past six years. Kundalini works very close to the nervous system on a subtle level and unpacks whatever we have stored in our physical, mental & emotional bodies through breath, sound & movement. Having been in the Yoga field now for 20 years, this practice has proved incredibly results in both herself and the students she has trained. This Yoga is for EVERY BODY as long as you have a willingness to grow, heal & connect to your SAT NAM (truth is your identity). Michelle has also used this Yoga for students dealing with depression, epilepsy, arthritis, insecurity, slipped discs, addictions, attention deficit disorder & fibromyalgia. She is now 48 years old and is amazed at how much more free she feels in her body, mind & spirit than she did when her yoga journey first began. It's never too late to start - it can only get better if you do.

Allison Tremblay

Therapist

After several years working in the business and marketing field, I decided to leave the mainstream path and discover my own. I have always been curious about the connection between our mind, body, and soul, specifically the physical body’s connection to our emotional state. I am passionate about incorporating physical healing with mental health in my treatments and assisting clients in their emotional processes and awakenings. This is how I discovered my true purpose and ended up becoming a holistic therapist. I am trained in a variety of different massage techniques and my treatments vary depending on the specific needs of each client. I am trained in Swedish, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, and Indian Head Massage. I am also trained up to level 2 in Reiki and love to incorporate this method of healing into my treatments with clients when I feel it would be a good fit. I help clients by guiding them on how to reconnect with themselves by being more present, in their body, confident, and by having more compassion and love for themselves and their surroundings.
