WITH SHEREZADE RUANO
Sherezade is a registered research nurse specialising in diabetes and cardiology, with extensive knowledge in clinical practice. She has been part of several publications in well known scientific institutions and medical magazines such as the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), and Publisher Medline (PubMed). She is currently writing her own piece in the management of stress factors and heart disease through Yoga, Meditation and self-acceptance. As she integrates her artistic expression in her practice, she mainly teaches Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga with enthusiasm, compassion and inspiration. With flowing yet grounded sequences, she guides students through slow movements and transitions in order to create inspirational and safely structured practices.
Emphasising the importance of breathing and correct body alignment are key points in all her classes. Sherezade thinks that the connection we have with nature and others is directly linked with the relationship we have with ourselves. She strongly believes that the practice of Yoga goes infinitely farther than stepping on a mat. Sherezade encourages people to first question and then create a mindful practice, which reflects the way we do yoga as the way we live our life. She likes to believe that each individual on earth is an instrument of evolution and yoga is the gift to self realisation. Her unique style teaches and inspires moving freely and dancing with awareness from one stage in life, evolving into the next. Her specialism in Yoga Therapy is working specifically with people living with heart disease, cancer and other debilitating diseases. In Na’vi Camp, she aims to build a sense of community to help others thrive in life by nurturing body, mind and soul with Yoga.
‘I see Yoga as an essential part of my life. It keeps me in contact with who I truly am as a whole. It keeps me grounded in this busy working society. I encourage everyone to begin their practice and open themselves to the possibility of change and evolution (in their life). Since I discovered the term ahimsa (non-violence), I honoured this practice and encourage people around me to find it within themselves.’
She feels honoured and blessed having studied with many of the leading UK and worldwide teachers and authors like: Jean Hall, Mimi Kuo-Deemer, Celest Pereira, Ryan Spielman, Emma Henry, Elena Brower and Carlos Pomeda amongst others. Personally, Sherezade is a passionate sun seeker, piano player and walking meditation enthusiast.
