Gabrielle started practising Iyengar yoga in 2008. She quickly fell in love with the practise and ended up leaving her job to travel round India for six months exploring different practises and teachers. She completed her teacher training in Jivamukti in November 2012.
She has been inspired by the Jivamukti founders Shannon Gannon and David Life, and other senior teachers such as Emma Henry and Rachel Middleton. She now teaches full time and has continued her studies with Kino McGregor, David Swenson and Elena Brower.
Her classes are slow but strong Jivamukti flow. She works on the breath and give people time to refine and explore each posture. Sequences are thoughtful and her playlists are chosen with care to complement the tone of the class.
Amber grew up in Andalucia and travelled to India at a very young age. Her time there caused a deep impression and led to her interest in the yogic practices she began to embrace as a teenager.
Amber’s classes are dynamic and engaging. There is
an emphasis on alignment and the nuances of each posture to unlock the physical body mindfully and allow for the maximum flow of energy. She completed her 500 hour teacher training with Karuna Yoga, an adaptation of the rigorous iyengar method.
Amber teaches with grace and compassion. She
skilfully adapts the expression of each pose according to abilities, gently guiding beginners or challenging more advanced practitioners.
Trasierra is a privately owned hotel set high in the Sierra Morena Mountains, 80km north of Seville in the heart of Andalucia. This historic 16th Century house stands in an aromatic garden surrounded by three thousand acres of olive and orange groves and has been the property of Charlotte Scott and her family for 35 years. Its charm is that it is a family house as well as an hotel; designed for people who appreciate peace, good taste and comfort, delicious food and stunning unspoilt landscapes.
Their motto: "Nothing flashy. We have tried our hardest to keep it simple; everything you could possibly want without any ostentatious “Luxury”. Trasierra combines the feeling of living in a grand country house in Spain with the style and amenities of a good hotel.
