Gaia Persico (Yoga)


Gaia Persico is passionate about sharing the beauty and benefits of Yoga, and how its philosophy helps in everyday life. She teaches Hatha, Vinyasa, pranayama and meditation. Her yoga classes are full of joy and energy, and through thoughtful modifications for each posture, they are geared for both beginner and advanced practitioners alike. Thus allowing each yogi and yogini to discover their own inner journey of development at their own pace.

Co-Director of MA&Y, a yoga and martial arts centre in South West London, she is a Yoga Alliance Professionals and British Wheel of Yoga qualified teacher, who has been a practitioner for almost twenty years. She completed a two-year 390 hours Teacher Training Course at Triyoga under the guidance of Jeff Phenix, Susannah Hoffman and Carlos Pomeda, as well as an advanced Vinyasa teacher training with Mimi Kuo Deemer, a meditation teacher training with Sally Kempton and advanced pranayama with Richard Rosen. She regularly attends asana, anatomy, pranayama and philosophy workshops lead by Jason Crandell, Bridget Woods-Kramer, Sally Parkes and Norman Blair, to name a few. She will be a teaching assistant for Mimi Kuo Deemer and Jean Hall Daoist Flow Teacher Training at Triyoga and she will be partaking in a 300 hours advanced teacher training with Jason Crandell, beginning in August 2019.

Over the last few years, she has been studying Vijjñãna-bhairava-tantra, The Pratyabhijñã Hridaya and The Yoga Sutras and with Dr Christopher Wallis, a Sanskrit and Saiva Tantra scholar who also teaches meditation. She has found the latter to be particularly pertinent to 21st Century life and she loves to share the benefit of its practices in class, incorporating meditation and yoga philosophy in addition to asana sequences.
