Christine grew up in the wilds of Texas and began her yoga training in Austin.

In 2014, Christine moved to Bali, Indonesia to get her 200 hr RYT apprenticeship with her mentor, Denise Payne, founder of One Song Yoga.  She later returned to Bali for a 100 hr RYT, specifically focusing on yin yoga and myofascial release. Christine moved to Shenzhen, China, and began Bitch, Please Yoga.

Nicola Tarbuck

Nicola started her career in contemporary dance at the Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Knee and back injuries led her to the the magic of remedial Pilates. Her therapeutic work fuses Pilates, yoga, and massage. Her classes at Buena Onda combine the breathwork and mindfulness of yoga, core strengthening of Pilates, and the freedom of movement inspired from release technique and dance training.

She says, “All I ask is that you enter my class with an open mind, and I promise I will help you to open your heart.” As a regular student I (Meghan) will add that she’ll make the rest of your body burn while the heart is opening, but the relaxation at the end makes it all worth it.

She describes Buena Onda Yoga as a space for nourishment, fun and and a wonderful community of sharing and love. When she’s not sparkling with us she’s massaging the celebrities that come through town and doing physical therapy with the athletes from Cirque du Soleil.

Norma Iov

Teaches our only Spanish Language class Friday 7pm

De chica tomó sus primeras clases de yoga con una profesora amiga de sus padres, sin tener idea de qué se trataba. Si bien practicaba otras actividades físicas, nunca olvidó la sensación de libertad física y mental que sentía durante y al finalizar las clases de yoga. En 1991 se recibió de Diseñadora Gráfica en la UBA, y años mas tarde decidió hacer el profesorado de yoga en el Instituto Yoga Kai (2009) y de Yogaterapia en Centro Ananda Yoga (2012). Para ella la práctica de Yoga ayuda a vivir el “aquí y ahora”, y dejar el “piloto automático a un lado”. Y esto trata de transmitir en sus clases, reflexionar en cada asana, sentir cada respiración, dedicando el tiempo necesario para alcanzarlas sin esfuerzo, pero con intención. 

Sus posturas favoritas: Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog - Perro Cabeza Abajo) entre otras cosas, relaja la mente y alivia el estrés, además de aportar mucha energía al cuerpo. Y las posturas de equilibrio que aumentan la coordinación, la concentración y el control del cuerpo. Además del Yoga y el Diseño Gráfico, también disfruta de cantar y tocar música.

“Si cuidamos la raíz del árbol, la fragancia y las flores vendrán por sí mismas. Si cuidamos el cuerpo, la fragancia de la mente y el espíritu vendrán por sí mismos”. B. K. S Iyengar.

Agradece pertenecer a BOY, por la calidad profesional y humana de quienes lo integran. Dar clases a extranjeros para ella es una nueva experiencia. Le agrada sentirse “un poquito extranjera” dentro de su querida Argentina.
