About your Yoga teacher

I’m Su Orosa.  I have founded a Wellbeing business www.suorosa.com and have taught adults a variety of subjects for around 25 years. For the last year I have run several workshops and Wellbeing retreats for adults who are looking to live life in more healthy ways – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have facilitated personal development groups for many years now, working at depth with groups of people who are committed to self-development.

I’m in my final year of a Scaravelli Teacher Training course run by Dot Bowen who founded the Integrity School of Yoga. The course is recognised by the Independent Yoga Network. During my training I have learnt the value of working with the body rather than against it. Scaravelli yoga is about creating integrity and connections in the body. In other words, it’s about rediscovering what is already there through a process of mindful exploration with an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to be with the unknown.

The Yoga I’ll be teaching will draw much from what I already include in my workshop and Wellbeing Retreats. I will focus on breath work as well as mindful movement. This yoga isn’t about attaining certain physical positions; it’s about using yoga postures as a way in to the deeper aspects of ourselves. That’s why this yoga is suitable for all shapes and sizes.

My love of Yoga, understanding of the mind-body connection and appreciation of the complexity, beauty and wisdom of the body lend themselves well to what will be a transformational week away.

About your Spanish teacher

I’m Mayte Alvarez and I have been teaching Spanish for 32 years now. I’m inspired working with adults who want to learn Spanish because at the same time as being fun, I can help to share this wonderful language which is the 3rd most spoken language in the world!

I’m always looking to continue doing what I love and the project of teaching Spanish in conjunction with Mindfulness Yoga in Spain is something I have always wanted to do.

Over the years, I have taught in Adult Education settings, After School clubs and colleges. I have also taught GCSE and ‘A’ Level Spanish at Salford University and at the prestigious Instituto Cervantes. For the last 17 years, I have taught at the University of Manchester where I teach Spanish from Beginners to Advanced levels as well as conversation classes. I studied my degree at the University of Madrid and my Masters in Education in University of Manchester.  I have written a textbook for Beginners called On Course Spanish and it has been used on my courses at University for many years. As you can see, you’ll be in safe hands!
