Heather began practising Hot yoga in Toronto, Canada 15 years ago. The love of the Spanish language brought Heather to Spain in 2006. After several stressful years in sales in a crisis market, Heather decided to follow one of her life long dreams to become a certified yoga instructor. She was lucky to have been trained under Baron Baptiste (Baptiste Power Hot yoga), Ted Grand (Moksha Hot yoga), Bikram Yoga, Rodney Yee, Alex Leikermoser a.k.a. yogagurl, and the Tribe yoga instructors, Scarlett and Raquel. Heather is certified in teaching Vinyasa and Prenatal yoga.
Mike has been practicing and teaching meditation in Spain, Portugal, and England for the last 20 years. He has studied for over 10 years with the Tibetan Lama Geshe Kelsang as a Buddhist monk and is currently a student of Eckhart Tolle - author of the bestseller The Power of Now. He is known for his ability to convey the teachings in a clear and practical way. His presence is an inspiration to those who want to begin or deepen their experience of meditation and inner peace.

I thought the YTT was very good. I enjoyed the fact that we had a few different instructors throughout the duration of the course - each one brought their own unique style of teaching and perspective to the course, which gave us, as the students, a greater understanding and platform for learning the essentials of yoga. I was quite apprehensive of doing the YTT as I have had bad knees for years and hurt my one knee again shortly before the course started, but there was nothing to fear - the instructors were all very knowledgeable about proper alignment to protect yourself from injury and always provided modifications for poses as well. The knowledge I gained on the YTT is invaluable - it has helped improve my own practice, taught me body awareness and equipped me with the necessary skills to confidently teach others what I have learned!
Yogalinda provides a very informative and insightful training that gives you the tools to be your best self and to help others along the way. The teachers are very well educated in their field and give you every chance for success. I feel well prepared for going out into the world and interacting with students. Thank you for all the effort and dedication you put into the program.
Incredible, lovely and magical experience and journey. I feel blessed that I got a study yoga in a Barcelona and with profesional and big hearted team at Yogalinda. It has changed me for the better and in some part I met myself of what I am. And I will carefully share this knowledge that you gave me.

Choosing to do my teacher training intensive at Yogalinda has been an extraordinary experience. The training is set up to be incredibly practical while also giving you a taste of all these less-considered aspects of the practice you will end up craving to become an expert on. The team of people Heather has put together is well-balanced and full of wisdom and personality, making each section of the course exciting and leaving you wishing you had more time with all these mini mentors. I loved the atmosphere of Yogalinda and the energy of the entire training. The challenging 28 day intensive experience that was bound to leave us physically and emotionally exhausted ended up giving us equal energy back, making this easily one of the most enriching months of my life.
I embarked on the journey of YTT to deepen my knowledge and get the necessary intensity to change my daily habits for good. The diversity of personalities, personal stories, experiences, styles help to find how to make the journey a personal one and hot to fit in that world. The intensity of the sessions of asanas help to practice in a safe environment advanced poses and discover that a lot is available when well guided. The introduction to philosophy and meditation really motivates me to want to study and practice a lot.
This course has been really helpful for me as a beginner in vinyasa yoga. After finishing this course I can say that I have learned heaps and I have been prepared very professionally from Lezanne and Heather. It has been a complex and intense month, learning postures, alignments, the philosophy about meditation... but at the same time it has been so much fun. It is a great that we had had the experience learn from many different professionals learning different styles and points of view. Therefore it has been an extensive course, complete and very useful. I gain self-confidence and I can proudly say that I feel ready to be a yoga instructor. This course has been an amazing support to my state of mind and depression. I have learnt techniques, philosophies, asanas and so many resources that I will be applying from now on. I have understood the state of mind, the importance of staying in the present, to meditate and to breathe, to find inner calm, satisfaction and happiness. Both Lezanne and Heather had helped me to get through difficult times and face the life in a positive, curious and challenging way. Thank you guys!!!
I had a very good experience and an inspired to keep investigating in the aspects I found as being very interesting apart from yoga practice, including ayurveda.
I found that it was really good to have Heather and Lezanne as teachers as they are quite different in their way of teaching and being, so it brings a good balance in the training. I really enjoyed anatomy seven if it was a bit hard to understand everything as being french, but Julia made it VERY easy to understand. I learnt a lot and I'm very keen on keeping it going. It was great to be able to get introduced to Yoga Synergy and acroyoga. I didn't know those practices and I really enjoyed them.
After practicing different styles of yoga (mainly in heated rooms) for a few years on a daily basis, I decided it was time to take my practice a little bit further and enrol in the Yogalinda Hot Vinyasa Teacher training, hoping that I could one day share my experience of yoga with other practitioners. After completing this intense month of training, I am glad I took this special opportunity to learn, as all of the teachers helped me more than I could have imagined.
Heather and Lezanne, our main instructors, are both very skilled teachers although rather different from one another – which is actually a plus, as I found it helpful to be shown different perspectives and options to build and organize a class. Under their guidance, I was able to learn new techniques, and to adjust my own practice thanks to their precious advices. On a more personal note, I would also like to say that they are both really nice and easy-going, and that I had a lot of fun learning with them. Thanks to their humble, understanding and all-inclusive teaching approach, there was no pressure whatsoever in our group of students: I think we all felt comfortable enough to share our respective qualities, but also our flaws and our doubts about our practice, between each others and with our teachers. This training, by giving me the chance to practice with a group of people - who have a different yoga background and a different way to practice -, turned into a great lesson of acceptance, and was a great reminder that we can and should learn from everybody instead of comparing ourselves in the yoga room.
Mike, our Ayurveda and meditation teacher, was definitely a memorable encounter of this training. To be honest, meditation is not my strong point, and I could admit that I have some trouble “getting it”. However, Mike’s presence is already something in itself! He really inspires calmness, and was willing to discuss his understanding of meditation with the few of us that were quite sceptical about it – or rather frustrated at least. I really enjoyed that he came to this training and share his wisdom with us. I only wish we had more time to study a little bit deeper Ayurveda, but I understand that this is a vast subject that would require years of training in itself.
Julia, our anatomy teacher, offers a valuable insight on the basis of anatomy that are absolutely necessary when considering teaching yoga, but also when practicing. I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know - and that I thought I knew but actually didn’t - and I am now more confident as I feel that I gained a new tool not only to safely advance in my own practice, but also to share a healthy yoga practice with future students.
Finally, it was enriching to have the opportunity to try different styles throughout the training (such as Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Prenatal Yoga, and even Acro Yoga with a specialist teacher Sonia), and I appreciated that enough time was allocated to introduce us to the philosophy of Yoga. But most importantly, thanks to all of the practice of teaching exercises that we did throughout the month, I know feel confident enough to teach a yoga class when given the opportunity.
Don’t hesitate to join the next training, you are in the right hands at Yogalinda!"
I thought the course was put together extremely well. I enjoyed the variety of teaching and all avenues of theory were broached. Overall, I'm very happy with the course. I learned a lot. Thank you!
The training is definitely intensive. All of the teachers are knowledgeable and thorough, its definitely a lot of information to process in a short amount of time but by the end, you'll be surprised by how much sticks. It's the best thing I've done for myself physically and emotionally in a very long time.
Barcelona is a great location for the course. The studio and apartments are located within walking distance and they're all close to the beach. Great atmosphere! The teachers were nice and they inspired us to work more. The course was divided into practice and theory every day. It's a good value for your money compared to other teacher trainings. I´m happy to have spent one month here and improve my practice and meet new friends.

Yogalinda is a beautiful studio in a beautiful city, and the course is a wonderful opportunity for self-disovery, self-improvement, and spiritual enlightenment. I left the course feeling really confident about myself, my practice, and my abilityto teach yoga to anyone with a desire to learn. I feel truly grateful for the chance to know everyone involved in this course and I can only hope they feel the same.
Ricardo Coll Normandie
I enjoyed my training at Yogalinda tremendously. Hard work paid up in great improvement in my practice and my knowledge of yoga. Its an excellent independent facility. I will miss it when I return to Normandie.
Great balance of knowledge from the teachers. They have a true passion for what they do!

Ha sido una gran experiencia poder forman parte de este grupo de profesoras de yoga. Ha sido un mes muy intenso, con mucho trabajo, muchas clases practicas y muchos conocimientos relacionados con yoga (anatomía, filosofía, sánscrito) Durante este mes hemos experimentado muchas sensaciones y muchas emociones. Hemos reído, hemos llorado, hemos compartido secuencias y hemos aprendido las unas de las otras. Probablemente todas empezamos este curso siendo unas personas y gracias a todos estos conocimientos hemos evolucionado y hemos cambiado nuestra forma de persona, de actuar y de hablar. Me siento muy feliz y orgullosa de mi misma por haber superado estos 28 días. Muchos días me he juzgado por no ser suficiente fuerte o flexible pero he comprendido que yoga no es solo práctica de asanas, sino que yoga mucho más amplio y se puede practicar de diferentes maneras. Volveriá a repetir este curso de formación porque le experiencia ha sido muy euriquecedora y me voy de aquí siendo mejor persona.
Ideal para hacer un paréntesis en mi vida, profundizar en el conocimiento y práctica del yoga, aprender inglés e instruir clases en este idioma y compartir con personas de todos partes del mundo en un ambiente familiar, cálido y personalizado y además cerca del mar.
No ha sido slo un aprendizaje terico y prctico, mi descubrime y experimentarme como profesora; tambin ha sido un crecimiento personal y en mi vida en general. Lo aqu aprendido ha sido maravillosa y me llevo una rodilla llena de recuerdos, herramientas y un sinfn de cosas ms para aplicar a mi prctica, a mi vida y ensearlo a los dems. Adems, los profesionales que forman el equipo de formacin sienten el yoga y conocen de manera profunda todo de l.
Aprende, comparte, perfecciona y. Deja tu espritu ser feliz!
