Born in London, Mark is a registered E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Teacher, he splits his time between UK, Spain, Thailand, India & Bali. He has been teaching yoga since 1995 and is recognised as one of the first Ashtanga yoga teachers to settle and teach regular classes in the UK, having studied directly with Ashtanga yoga founder Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. In addition to his initial training, Mark has also studied asana, pranayama and meditation with some of the worlds most renowned gurus and teachers such as Clive Sheridan, Narayani Rabinovitch, Derek Ireland & Godfrey Devereux to name but a few.
Through his studies, practice and teaching of Ashtanga, he has evolved and in many respects softened in order to allow his students to experience the true essence of the practice, which for Mark is ‘meditation in movement’. From 1996-2008, Mark spent 12 years as senior teacher at the prestigious Life Centre in west London. He was also a mentor on the first few Life Centre teacher training courses in 2003. He now teaches on retreats, workshops and teacher training courses in worldwide destinations including UK, Spain, Thailand & India.
“I have a strong passion for Ashtanga as a hatha yoga practice and a path of meditation. I am also exploring other techniques to reach those higher states of consciousness associated with spiritual practice”.
Mark is the author of the book ‘Yoga for Beginners’ (1997), one of the early yoga books written offering an introduction to Ashtanga yoga.
Raquel was born in Spain and moved to London in 1999 where she started her yoga practice. She quickly noticed profound effects occurring through her varied Hatha yoga practices, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. Seeking to deepen her knowledge of yoga she undertook a 1-year teacher training course in 2007 in London, followed by further training in Mysore, India.
She has studied with both Siva Rai & Jeff Phoenix, who have been influential in the development of her Vinyasa Flow style. During this period of study she met and started teaching with Mark Ansari. Their passion for yoga, life and teaching is evident in their international classes, retreats and trainings.
As a long time yoga practitioner, Raquel has been able to digest the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual knowledge and wisdom that surrounds traditional yoga. In her teaching, she translates her personal understandings with a fresh and relaxed approach. Her particular area of interest is yoga philosophy & the human mind, both of which she has studied extensively. She has a talent for directing students deeper into their own experience on the mat and encouraging a greater awareness of yogic principles that can be applied to daily living.
