Faculty

Hannah Campos

Hannah practices and teaches movement for the purpose of finding freedom, comfort, and ease in the body. Her own experience of discomfort and instability in her body while pregnant and postpartum led to a dramatic overhaul in her approach to movement. She has a passion for functional movement, engaged and inspired alignment, and using asana as a gateway to the deeper, more subtle practices of yoga.

 

Motherhood is one of the primary laboratories for her practice. Every day she is challenged to take her yoga off the mat and put it into action as she strives to parent consciously and gently.

 

Hannah is a co-owner of Gertrude Street Yoga alongside her husband Jaspah. She offers classes on the weekly timetable, and leads the 200 hour training.

Ana Uribe

From a very young age, Ana started to ask herself and others questions that turn her into a quest inside her body. Since then, she has spent the last 18 years seeking her own personal healing through yoga, earth base wisdom and human connection. Throughout this time, she has spent traveling the world, learning from other cultures, exploring different tools and ancient techniques to tap into her own personal power and since then she has been in a mission to share these with people. In the last years she has dedicated herself to design and facilitate classes,
programs, and retreats for people of all of sorts of backgrounds,
and she is also part of our Teacher Training Faculty.

 

Ana believes is everyone’s birthright to access these tools so she is dedicated to sharing them with people specially from Youth justice, youth homelessness and young girls as well as yoga studios and centres nationally and internationally. Whether she is sharing through words, movement or the space in between them, her mission is to meet people exactly where they are, share the power that comes from going inside their bodies, and watch what unravels.

Nina Alfers

Nina characterizes her yoga practice as Tantric Hatha, an orientation which focuses on finding one’s limits, and learning to expand them even while working within them. Her classes are strong, yet playful and healing. Nina is both a yoga teacher and a massage therapist. She brings the two professions together in a yoga practice that emphasizes physical alignment as well as mental and spiritual well-being.

Each of her yoga classes is geared towards addressing the specific needs of the students. There is not a set sequence of poses to be followed, so every class is different. Nina continuously reminds students that it is your practice; you are encouraged to take it where you need to go – provided you work safely and watch your breathing.
