Georgia Marnham

Georgia Marnham is a highly qualified Iyengar Yoga teacher with broad experience, having practised Iyengar Yoga for more than 25 years, and lived and taught in Australia, England, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Brazil and now Portugal where she is currently based. She has Junior Intermediate level 3 qualifications and has studied with senior Iyengar teachers from many countries and on several occasions studied at the RMYI in Pune, India with BKS Iyengar, his daughter, Geeta, and son, Prashant.

Georgia knows first-hand the ability of yoga to rehabilitate and has a strong focus on the restorative and remedial benefits of Iyengar Yoga. She uses a clear and calm style of teaching with an emphasis on the individual needs of each student.

Her classes in Ulpotha will include active morning classes ensuring correct alignment within the pose, leaving you feeling energised and not strained, which is the hallmark of the Iyengar style. The evening classes will have a more restorative focus and giving a chance to focus on any individual issues you’d like addressed. Pranayama will also be included during the retreat.

While deeply understanding that the depth of yoga comes with focusing the mind and learning the art of self observation and reflection, she manages to teach the asanas with joy and humour. She teaches both beginner and general levels. She has three children and practiced yoga through all pregnancies.
