Assistant Ashtanga Yoga Teacher

Irantzu Rekalde

Irantzu embarked on her yoga journey in 2013 with her first Ashtanga class at Ashtanga Yoga Madrid. Originally drawn to yoga as a complement to her dance career, she discovered a passion that reshaped her path. Assisting Yoga classes became a new outlet after her dance career, allowing her to channel her focus into this transformative practice.

Under the guidance of mentor Alexia Pita, Irantzu's journey with Yoga deepened. She has also studied with notable instructors like Laura Griskeviciute, Mati Guerra, Arne Espejel, Peter Sanson, Hamish Hendry, and most recently Olivier David, whom she assists and teaches for in his absence. Irantzu's commitment led her to the source of Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India, where she practices under Sharathji Jois since 2019, immersing herself in tradition with a diverse community from all around the world.

Blending her dance background with yoga, Irantzu creates a unique and dynamic approach. Her journey with yoga has been one of profound personal growth. Today, she shares this transformative power with her students, embodying the union of mind, body, and spirit.
