Ainània Tècul

Yoga Barcelona

Biologist and yoga teacher. She is an enthusiast of life by the sea and with rebellious spirit. She loves to try all the sports and activities, but she always prefers to be next to the sea. She was born in la Costa Brava and it's shown in her blood and her classes: they contain the energy of the wind and the serenity of the countryside. You will find diversity, creativity and humor. For her, yoga is not a sport, it is a way of living, aiming high. She calls her style ‘Evolution Urban Yoga’, where she mixes the best of each discipline. The correct body alignment, understanding the poses from the anatomical point of view, flowing with creativity and how the body and mind are connected in one place to work together in the same direction.

What drives you? 

Progress. Mental progress. Understanding my role in the Universe. Usually it comes through physical training and constancy. Flexible mind in a flexible body.

What’s next in training? 

Props are the new trend. I'm a Dharma Yoga Wheel certified, I use the wheel in my classes to get deeper backbends and to bring my students to new places that can't be experiemented only with the body.

What makes you happy?

Not easy to answer, finding the perfection in the imperfection, simplicity and the feeling of success.

How do you create balance in your life? 

Oh, this one is easy. Creating habits. HEALTHY habits. And I could only choose one, I would say getting up early and do my yoga self-practice.

What’s one piece of kit you could not live without?

A yoga mat with a good grip.

What are your goals for the future? 

Woho! Inspire others.

Who inspires you and why?

I'm inspired by the real stories, the ones that you can say "I have found myself in the same situation, and I will overcome it just like him or her".
