Layakari: about me

My name is Laia Puig, and I was introduced to yoga as a parallel practice of my dance career in 1998.

However, it wasn’t until I took a Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training in 2008 in South India that my real initiation into Yoga started, with growing passion.

Since then, I have been practicing regularly asanas, pranayama and meditation, reading the yogic philosophy and trying to understand and apply all that in my daily life; as well as teaching it to groups and in private classes.

I took further trainings in Yoga Prenatal and Yoga for Kids, Yoga and Stress Management  at the Sivananda Center in London; Advanced Teachers Training and Yoga Prenatal and Postnatal at the Sivananda Ashram in Orleans and Yoga of the Heart at the Sivananda Retreat House in Reith.

I enjoy being temporary staff for the Sivananda organization, specially translating their courses and teachers trainings in Europe and in India. I feel it deepens my practice and the teachings I receive, and it strengthens my path.

I feel very grateful to have the challenge to be on the path and to pass it to others.

In my classes, I teach Sivananda Hatha Yoga tradition: proper breathing, proper exercise, proper relaxation, positive thinking.
