About our Yoga Classes
Yoga with Lia
Born in Siberia to musical parents, Lia fell in love with yoga at a young age. With a thirst for deeper understanding she travelled the world and immersed herself in many different yoga methods and teachings. Since then she has hosted yoga retreats in Africa, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Mexico, Switzerland, Sardinia and the Maldives.
Lia aims to inspire Kaliyoga’s guests to build an authentic home practice, drawing on all that she has learnt – Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa Flow, Hormonal balance, Meditation, Ayurveda and Self Massage – to deliver a yoga course suitable for all ages and abilities.
From the first moment that you meet Lia, she exudes a positive, loving energy. In the yoga class she is always ready to support each person according to their individual needs. Yogic breathing is the key to unlocking the hidden power of yoga and Lia focuses in particular on synchronising breath with movement, delivering a dynamic yet meditative experience with detailed instruction and physical adjustments when needed.
After a retreat of yoga with Lia your understanding of yourself will deepen to so that you will feel more peaceful, more at ease and grounded, ready to establish a nourishing home practice that will bring balance and joy to your daily life.

Focusing on letting go, the result of these long held stretches will be a profound sense of wellbeing. Benefits include better sleep, an increase in vitality, reduced stiffness and improved flexibility.
