As a student herself, she continues her professional studies with some of the world's leading yoga teachers across Europe, including Susana Garcia Blanco; Gisela Vázquez; Carlos Pomeda, whose teachings are rooted in the Kashmir Shaivism tradition; and Jayendra Hanley, who she has assisted teach Anusara Immersions and Teacher Trainings in Spain.

When she´s not teaching, Millie enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and two dogs in their village home in Navarra; working in their allotment; cooking, painting, writing; and connecting with Nature by walking in the mountains, camping and surfing.

Jon Herbert

I am from Birmingham, England, I´m 39 years old. I studied history at Cambridge University and I trained to teach English (CELTA) in 1997. I have been teaching for more than 15 years and I have experience teaching students with different needs and ages. Before returning to Pamplona in April of 2012, I worked in Istanbul, Prague, Pamplona, Madrid and Birmingham, giving classes in academies, companies and universities. Some years ago I trained in psychotherapy, that which, amongst other things, has helped me to evolve as a teacher. I try to be aware of the abilities and needs of my students as individuals. I play the trumpet in the group "Hermano Lobo" and I continue training in technical theatre. In my free time I like going to the sea and the country, riding my bike, reading, and going out for drinks with my girlfriend and friends!



Miren

Practicing Kundalini Yoga has changed my life: I have learned how to breathe, to inhale and exhale, to take the good things that life offers me and get rid of anything that doesn’t make me feel full. Breathing is feeling free and living with awareness, which is the best way to adapt to the constant changes that you come across in life.

The sessions that I teach are fresh, bright, energetic and filled with awareness, at least that is what I try to do!! Joy and love, respect and empathy, energy and relaxation, breathing and movement, vibration and silence, everything gets integrated so the student feels that their physical body, mind and soul harmonize together.

When I´m not teaching, I like taking walks; sharing my time with the people I love; travelling; going to the mountains and breathing pure air; taking care of the plants in my house; reading; listening to music; feeling free and playing with children, they fill me up with energy! Things I don’t like include: creating conflicts, not feeling lucky, not making the most of my time and drinking too much coffee!



Ana Murillo

Navigator, enthusiastic and in love with live and love. I’m active, dynamic and a dreamer. Why not? That’s my motto. I´m a trained Master Coach International, hold a Bachelor Degree in Enterprise Science, and am a Specialist Technician in Management Computing.

In these times of change, it is essential to be aware of who we are, to know the purpose of our life, our talents and abilities, so we can evolve towards harmony and personal balance, aligning ourselves with life. If you ask me, that is what happiness is about, knowing that you’re in the correct place, doing what’s right for you in every moment. I join you in this evolutionary process as an Holistic Coach, through Individual and Group Coaching sessions. My job consists of bringing out your whole potential and joining you in your process of personal evolution, so you achieve your life mission and goals, the best possible way: using your own resources, rediscovering your talents and abilities, so you can use them in your everyday life. “Discover your potential, develop it and use it”.
