Daily Ashtanga Yoga Class in Nicaragua - Meet Julia Gavin

by Los Clavos 18 mars 2017
Julia is the resident Yoga Instructor at Los Clavos Surf Camp Nicaragua. Here is a short interview of "Fabulous Julia"
Julia, what is your background and how did you end up teaching yoga in Nicaragua ?
I am a keen and dedicated Ashtanga Yoga practitioner.  For the past 4 years I was working as Yoga Teacher Trainer in Goa, India.  With a passion for travel, I needed a new venture.  I came to Nicaragua in search of the ultimate yoga space to set up Yoga Retreats and Yoga Teacher Training Courses.  Claire and Romain were looking for a yoga teacher just as I arrived in Nicaragua.  The rest is history!!
In my previous life, I was a Mathematics High School Teacher.  It's been an interesting career change.
What do you like about teaching yoga at Los Clavos Surf Camp Nicaragua ? 
New guests arrive each week, some yogi, some not!!  There is always a range of levels and abilities in a Ashtanga yoga class here in Nicaragua.  I have been practicing a heap of Myofascia Release and my students are reaping the benefits of release to overcome limitations, particularly for surfing. But really, surfers make great yogis...I love their motivation and discipline.  I have definitely managed to share my love of Ashtanga Yoga here!
In addition to this, I am teaching in the most incredible yoga space.  The views of the Pacific Ocean and the sound of the waves crashing into the shore make teaching here very special.
And what do you love about the resort besides Ashtanga Yoga?
The list is never-ending, I'm not sure where to start - interesting guests from all corners of the world, learning to surf, Nahualapa Bay, Claire's apple tart, amazing food in general, abundance of fresh fruit, afternoon naps, sleeping to the sound of the ocean, natural swimming pools when the tide is out, hammocks, heaps of time for Ashtanga Yoga Class & Myofascia Release, study time, beach meditation, sunset meditation, moon meditation, salsa night, fridge full of cold beer, wine on Saturdays and much much more!!!
Can you tell us more about your upcoming yoga events at Los Clavos Surf Camp Nicaragua ?
I delighted to be hosting 300hr Yoga Teacher Training in Myofascia Release with Ashtanga Yoga, 4th November here.  I am also running week long courses in Myofascia Release and Ashtanga Yoga throughout the season.  Yoga Intensive Courses are planned for the first week of each month until June.  These will start 1st April.  All levels are welcome and programs are tailored to level and ability.  Details of all these can be found on my website:  www.judproyoga.com
I hope to see you soon for heaps of yoga and some surf too!!!  Join us soon xxx
See you soon!
