Luis Valentine


Luis is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti yoga teacher, having trained with Sharon Gannon and David Life, the founders of the method in New York and later went on to receive his Advanced Certification in Munich with Ruth Lauer- Manenti.

Luis trained as an actor and singer in London and started practicing yoga in 2007 whilst at drama school, as a way to support his body through movement and dance training. However, is was the effect on the mind that really drew him to the practice. Yoga has supported Luis on so many levels that he feels a responsibility to share and it was this, which initially inspired and continues to inspire him to teach.
He is a versatile teacher and has worked with both beginners and advanced practitioners. His training in many forms of dance, physical theatre, voice, speech and singing informs his teaching.
His soulful classes are a flowing and precise vinyasa, with challenging, yet fun sequences. Always focusing on breath and alignment, classes may include Sanskrit chanting, are supported by music and always end with deep relaxation. Luis hopes that students go beyond asana and take something from the practice off of the mat and out into the world.
