Teachers

Indhira Gil

I am a medical doctor, certified yoga instructor, women's circle facilitator, and sound therapist.

I share my experience and passion for Yoga, I have been in contact with this spiritual practice since 2013. I found in the practice of Yoga, healing for my mind, emotions, and body. Over time I have trained in other holistic tools to accompany and guide people so that they can achieve well-being not only on a physical level but also on a mental, emotional, ecological, and spiritual level.

For me, health is the most precious thing that a person can have and this has been the motor to do the work I do.
