Geraldine Hardy -  (Founder, Teacher E-RYT 200)

Geraldine (eRYT 200) is trained in a variety of yoga classes including Hatha, Vinyasa, Prenatal, Yin Yoga and Yoga for Cancer patients. Geraldine has been teaching internationally (Bali, Dubai and Washington D.C.) and contributes towards YogaLife Middle East magazine, YOGI TIMES, World of Yachts & Boats Magazine and Superyacht Radio. She started practicing Yoga 20 years ago and it was more about trying to create balance and ease in her body and mind after pushing herself to the limits with extreme sports and working in a stressful business environment. Her first encounter with yoga was Hatha, Bikram, then Ashtanga and now Vinyasa/Hatha with BelovedYoga and Svastha Yoga. Yoga has always been a great companion in her life to deal with her stress levels and active lifestyle. Eventually, she consciously decided to embark on the journey of yoga and completed RYT 200 hr certification with BelovedYoga teachers Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander. Geraldine draws her inspiration for a Vinyasa Flow style from her experience in dance and the philosophy of Yoga, while following the principles of ‘creating the appropriate amount of effort to sustain ease in the body and mind’ and weaving in philosophical concepts as intentions into the practice. Experiencing this balance ‘on the mat’ and then taking it ‘off the mat’ in our daily lives where the real practice of yoga begins.
