He was born in Srinagar, Kashmir, India, into a Brahmin family.

His grandfather was a disciple of Swami Ram Ji, of the Abninavagupta lineage.

His mother Krishna is a Sanskrit teacher and his father Dwarka Nath is a great follower of Lord Shiva. Born into the Shaivist Kashmir Tradition and having an interest in spirituality from an early age, he grew up around great Shaivite teachers.

Alvaro Semilla reflejado en un espejo

Álvaro Semilla

Since I was little I have been passionate about the great hidden mysteries of life…

At 20 years after training as a cook I decided to move to Ibiza where I started working in the kitchens of Personal Growth Retreat Centers; Yoga, meditation, shamanism, emotional intelligence, Taoism, expressive movement…

Throughout this period of time I learn to accompany and support the internal processes of the people who attend, in addition to taking care of their Food and Nutrition for Life. Macrobiotics, Ayurveda, Alkaline Diet, Detox, Raw Food…

These are some of the techniques that I was experimenting with, finally specializing in “Energy Nutrition” based mainly on the 5 Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Natalia Castillo

Yoga teacher trained with Matrika Yoga School. Coordinates and co-facilitates Yoga training in Santander, Cantabria.

Dancing between the body and the soul…trying to understand the mind…

Since I was little, dancing and swimming was what made me feel good. I always noticed something else… I thought that by studying the functioning of the body I would be able to understand what it was.

I studied physiotherapy (EU Gimbernat, San Cugat del Vallés, 2004-2008) but finally decided to investigate nutrition (FPII Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón, Viérnoles, 2008-2010). Working for 8 years as a dietitian at a county hospital, she still couldn’t find the connection.

I have traveled the last 10 years of my life being accompanied and transformed through the practice of Yoga. My approach to this ancient discipline was inspired by my first teacher Javier Casares, with whom I finally took the first steps of teaching (RYS200 Yoga Alliance Sala Tierra 2020). I still remember those words that helped me understand that the practice was not only based on the alignment of the postures, but that the practice without being widened by the awareness of the breath becomes alienation.

I continued my yogic studies of traditional Hatha yoga Shivananda (RYS200 Con Calma Yoga).

And finally I trained in Matrika Yoga, where in addition to continuing to investigate philosophy and postural biomechanics, this school made me curious to explore the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism from the Tantrika perspective of a teacher with a long experiential journey. Pablo Ferrero (RYS200 Matrika Yoga School. 100h YACEP Matrika Restorative Yoga level I and level)

During this time I also continued to delve into nutrition studies (Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics, UCAM 2017-2023)

There may be instincts to learn, but we only evolve from a settled foundation. Unhurried like the growth of a mountain.

The great thing about this job is being able to continue growing every day.

Carmen - Ananda Jyoti

Since 2007, I have been immersed in various disciplines of Personal and Spiritual Development, integrating therapies that encompass body, mind, emotions, and energy.

For me, it is not just a set of practices; it is a lifestyle. Some of the formations I have undertaken include Kinesiology, Reiki Usui and Karuna, Coaching based on Personality Typologies, Quiromassage, Visceral Massage, Reflexology, Acupuncture, Oriental Esthetics, and Aromatherapy. I am an instructor in Mindfulness, Yoga, Yoga Dance, Conscious Dance, and Uterine Dance.

My studies extend to Classical Tantra and Neo Tantra, the Hologram of Major and Celestial Chakras, and expertise as a therapist in Female Cyclicality and Sacred Sexuality. I am a facilitator for Yoni Eggs, offering Taoist Massage for the Uterus, Ovaries, and Chest, as well as Taoist Breathing for Yoni Egg accompaniment.

My work includes the Liberation of Bonds through Sacred Feminine Rites. In my recent endeavors, I have also become a Therapist in Kundalini Innerdance and Mettasomatic.

Currently, I guide women in connecting with their Feminine Energy and Sacred Sexuality. I facilitate Personal and Spiritual Development Practices in Retreats and serve as an Aromatherapy Trainer.

Danya Gabruch

Yoga teacher trained in Restorative Yoga and Pranayama 100h with our school. Of Canadian origin and based in Troncones, Mexico. Coordinates and co-facilitates retreats and training in Mexico.

Yoga has been an integral part of my life for over twenty years and continues to inform my path. I have my Hatha Yoga certification from the Santosha Yoga Institute in Australia, as well as Restorative, Iyengar and Pranayama training with the Matrika Yoga School and Meditative Arts in Spain. I am also certified in Shiatsu and Meridian Yin Yoga from the Shiatsu and Yoga Academy of Europe.

In addition to completing 500 hours RYT yoga teacher training, I have been on yoga retreats in Bali, Thailand, Portugal, Spain, Hawaii, and India. I have participated in many trainings and workshops including Acroyoga, Aerial, Qi Gong and Thai Yoga. I studied Vipasana Meditation in My-anmar and led various types of meditations and mindfulness practices, including Yoga Nidra. I keep abreast of current yoga literature and studies and am particularly interested in the therapeutic benefits of yoga.

Although Hatha informs the foundation of my practice, I consider my style non-dogmatic and inclusive of complementary movement traditions that are both intense and gentle. My classes include Qi Gong exercises to raise awareness of the relationship between Qi (energy) and breath, Pranayama work to calm the nervous system and focus the mind, and functional mobility exercises to build strength and remind us to play. I make space for my students to creatively explore the somatic connection of mind and body through intentional movement. I offer variations and modifications to the classic asanas to adapt the poses for students with limited range of motion or injuries. My goal is to invite lightness of being and joy and encourage others to listen and respond to their intuition with confidence and awareness.
