What is Vinyasa Krama?
“Vinyasa Krama Yoga is an ancient practice of physical and spiritual development. It is a systematic method to study, practice, teach and adapt Yoga. This Vinyasa Krama approach to yogasana is unique in all of Yoga. By integrating the functions of mind, body and breath in the same time frame, a practitioner will experience the real joy of Yoga practice.”
- Srivatsa Ramaswami
Understanding reality is understanding the changing nature of everything.
The sequence of asanas and their logical succession (Vinyasa) help us to gain a deeper awareness of this true changing nature of ourselves and our environment. The focused and unbroken intention that we embody at each step (Krama), linked with our conscious in- and out-breath brings us a little closer to the realisation of the process of development and constant becoming.
These profound understandings when applied in a Vinyasa Krama yoga practice and daily life, can definitely lead to great personal transformation and growth which one learns to direct toward the benefit of all sentient beings. It is clearly an immensely valuable skill to channel consious intention for the betterment of all and an even greater privilege to be able to share and impart this ability to other seekers of truth.

DANIELA FUENTES -
TT MAIN TEACHER & director - Teaching Techniques, Methodology & Philosophy
BA Design. Metropolitan Autonomous University, Mx City (2005)
MAS Curating. Zürich University of Arts (ZHdK), Switzerland (2014)
200HR t’s Yoga SF Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training (2005)

Daniela is a designer/artist/curator/yoga facilitator who discovered Yoga in the late 90’s during her Design studies in Mexico City. Yoga spoke to the body’s memories of her gymnast years from early childhood and her innate spiritual curiosity. She began practicing at the age of 17 and after 20 years of practice and many different phases, Yoga practice has become a tool in her life that plays a very important role in her perspectives, relationships and creative work. Daniela has studied with many teachers and various methods of Yoga, but the most informing source to her teachings are her own yoga and creative practice, a geeky, secretive obsession on learning about the Psyche and, moreover, her curious mind.
Daniela’s classes are a mix of chants, philosophical-thought-provoking inputs with day-to-day examples, sound & breath awareness, body-intelligent flowy asana (yoga poses) sequences, hands-on assist through which you receive tremendous loads loving wisdom cultivated through her many years of practice and teaching, meditation & relaxation. You may find her connecting Yoga philosophy with Art theory one day, and then another talking about the incredible potential of Vinyasa practice on Neuroplasticity.
She likes to conceive “yogis” as random people who -as David Swenson wisely said once- leave a place a little bit better than how they found it. Advanced Yoga practice is in Daniela’s eyes reflected in one’s emotional health, that of our relationships and our capacity to see and embrace ourselves and others even in the realm of our limitations and failures, by taking self-responsability of both our outer and inner worlds. A “true yogi” grows and learns from all her life experiences and relationships, her identity is not limited, and her capacity to enjoy life and thrive expansive.

For Emily, stepping onto the yoga mat is a refreshing reminder of what is important to her — that which keeps her feeling creative, inspired and in a meaningful relationship with life.
Yoga found Emily quite some years ago and it has been a regular part of her life ever since. It wasn’t until a handful of years after her 200HR Teacher Training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health that Emily found her life leading her towards sharing her practice in a more formal setting as a teacher. More recently she has completed additional trainings related to Yoga Anatomy and finished her 500HR teaching Certification with Mark Stephens in 2018/19.
Emily has a great love for the practice and continues to evolve in her own study as a student. She has a great love for the practice, believing that she is first and foremost a student herself, and that the shared experience of teaching enriches her own personal study.
As a mother, Emily is additionally passionate about the ways that yoga enhances the well-being and confidence of children while also boosting the bonds of family life. Her greatest teacher has been her own child but she has also been honored to study and complete more than 125 hours of Kids Yoga training with Next Generation Yoga (USA) and Rainbow Kids Yoga (Australia) and is now a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance.

200 HR Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Airyoga Zürich (2011)
300 HR Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Airyoga Zürich (2012/13)
Since I can remember, body movement and dance have always been a significant part in my life. A strong longing to go deeper into more subtle and holistic bodywork came up while I was studying movement education in Basel (GDS/IfB, Bewegungspädagogik, 2005-2008). That’s when I came across Yoga for the very first time. Soon after, I found myself in India, seeking for deeper understanding, truth, love and hOMe. Since then my Yoga-mat has always been with me and my urge to learn, practice and develop led me to many different places and wonderful teachers around the globe: Biff Mithoefer (Yin Yoga, 50h TT), O.P. Tiwari (Pranayama), Surrinder Singh (Hatha Yoga), Ajay Kumar (Asthanga Yoga), Doug Keller (Yoga Therapy, Philosophy), Gurmukh (Kundalini Yoga), Sienna Sherman (Anusara Yoga), Sharat Arora (Iyengar Yoga), Radhanath Swami-ji (Bhakti Yoga), Goenka-ji (Vipassana & Metta Meditation), Thich Nhat Hanh (Mindfulness, Buddhism).
In 2011 I completed the 200h TT in Vinyasa Yoga in Zürich, followed by a +300h ATT in Hatha Yoga 2012/13 (+100h 2015) with my dearest teacher Stephen Thomas. It has been through him that I discovered the more subtle work of Pranayama, Mudra and Bandha, which opened me new doors into deeper dimensions.

METHODOLOGY: VOICE TRAINING & CHANTING
BA Opera Music. Conservatorio Nacional del Liceu de Barcelona
MA Early Music. School Cantorum Basel
I began my musical studies as a young child in a music school where the voice was the main focus of the musical education. These first years determined the course of my later career and have made me company during all my life. A lute concert in a summer workshop delighted me at the age of 22, there I discovered Early Music. Therefore, after graduating with honours from the Conservatory of Liceo in Barcelona, I decided to continue my studies in the field of Early Music with Dominique Vellard and Richard Levitt at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, in Switzerland.
I always loved and needed movement. Dance and sport were some of my parallel activities, until Yoga got my attention and help me to find a balance in life: movement, breathing and music are all one.
My curiosity and persistent questions about female repertoires in early music leaded me to become the founder of a women ensemble with early music singers Paloma Gutiérrez del Arroyo, June Telletxea and Anne Marie Lablaude. The ensemble Cantaderas interprets traditional womens’ vocal repertoires accompanied with frame drums and it will present its first CD at “As festas do Anno” in September 2019.
My work as a voice teacher is an encouragement and an important complement for my musical life, it is difficult for me to imagine a performance life without the teaching part. I love to teach and my teaching work spreads out between the Music School of the Schola Cantorum and my neighbourhood with amateur musicians. Additionally, I teach at the Hautrive Monastery in Fribourg –where the monks have offered me the great gift of their trust as a teacher and as a person– and at B.Yoga, where I always have something to learn. Thanks Basel.
I perform regularly in European festivals in France, Holland, Germany, Spain and Switzerland with Cantaderas, La Cecchina and Gilles Binchois. I also perform XX century music with the violinist Colleen Jennings, with whom I founded the ensemble Ex Luce color. I sing regularly in Switzerland with the Orchestra Crescendo performing later repertoires from Mendelssohn, Gounod, Fauré and Spohr.
