Lourdes Ramirez is a BWY Qualified teacher who has found in Yoga a portal to become stronger, confident & compassionate, Lourdes teaches Yoga with the intention to inspire her students, creating a safe space for transformation. Lourdes stays true to all aspects of Yoga including Philosophy, seeking to make ancient teachings relevant in modern times.
My approach to teaching Yoga is building a fun class with a specific “theme” in mind. The preparatory Vinyasa sequence will warm the body and prepare the muscles / joints for you to reach a peak posture in a stable and safe way.
I am the type of teacher who has to work hard to achieve postures, my natural flexibility is limited, and as such, I had to develop a practice where I had to understand the mechanics of each posture, understanding which set of muscles are needed, therefore I am comfortable in guiding students who feel they are not as flexible, I want to work with them to make them believe it is possible!
Some of the expected themes during a normal class would be: “Gratitude”, “Releasing your inner warrior”, “Energizing the day” , "Open your heart", "Let go or get dragged", etc.
I also work full time as a Senior Scientist for a multinational company, so I use Yoga to help me balance workload and stress.
I have a particular passion for empowering and helping Women. Hence the classes dedicated to honoring the Goddess within. Look at the "Shakti Yoga" page for more info.
