Yoga teacher, Ayurvedic Therapist, Ayurvedic Health Advisor,
Nath has always been drawn to extracurricular sports and activities. It led her to experimenting with multiple disciplines and find her passion for theater, contemporary dance, surfing and climbing. Somewhere down the road, she was introduced to Yoga. It fascinated her deeply from the first moment.
Something about how it changed her mind and attitude captivated her attention, and the adventure begun.
The practice of Hatha Yoga kept her grounded for a long time, and six years later she decided to train to be an instructor.
In Venezuela she grew deeper in her practice and learned how to translate this beautiful practice into teaching. Since then she’s lived a life of service to wonderful stundents and teachers who have come into her life.
̈My intention is that the people who I get to teach, will be able to experience a progressive improvement in their daily practice on the mat and that it will be directly reflected in their lifestyles. When we can analyze how each stimulation we perceive through the senses affects us, we are able to find balance.”
Today Nath lives in a quiet beach on the shore of Tenerife Island. She’s lucky enough to dedicate her life to help people find their path through Yoga and Ayurveda.
Ayurvedic Chef, Ayurvedic Health Advisor, Yoga teacher,
Lisa Åkesson Stryker is the founder of Areyouvedic, her business and online platform through which she shares her passion of Yoga and Ayurveda. She supports her clients through Ayurvedic health consultations, workshops in Ayurvedic cooking, Ayurvedic treatments and her Yoga teaching.
She offers a holistic and integrated view of the practices, approached with light heartedness and attention to each individual’s specific needs. Through the combination of Yogic philosophy, application of the Ayurvedic principles and guided subtle energy meditations, she’s able to support her clients on many levels. She cooks for retreats and Yoga teacher trainings, teaches private and group Yoga, and through these activities continues to go further on her own path.
Her teachings are guided by a strong desire to share her journey towards a calmer and stronger mind, healthier body and a more balanced relationship to food. It is important for Lisa to be of service, and cooking has recently been the main medium through which she is able to show up for others in this way.
Raja Yoga is approached in a focused, balanced and sustainable way. The asana is done with some longer holds, seamlessly blended with easy, balanced, slow flow, to allow students to go deeper and explore postures fully.
Get ready to experience true Ayurvedic food first hand.
All meals will be freshly made by our Ayurvedic chefs, Lisa & Nath. And by you if you choose to join the cooking class! We use local and organic ingredients and cook according to the Ayurvedic priciples. Thus assuring the food will bring balance, harmony and a gently detoxifying affect to your body and mind.
We will consume no alcohol, drugs or refined sugar during the retreat.
This is to give you a chance to cleanse, reset, slow down and fully experience
the effect of the food and yoga practices.
Your dietary needs are of course taken care of, please specify when booking.
