Param Satya

Param Satya - Principal Yoga Instructor at Knead Yoha Studio

Principal Yoga Instructor

I discovered Yoga 30 years ago through Yoga Philosophy in the United States. In 1994 I enrolled into a 3 year Teacher Training program at a BKS Iyengar Academy in New Zealand.
My extensive training in this program allowed me to understand the importance of watching the development of a student’s yoga practice and to view every class and every student with a fresh outlook. This means that I watch the development of our students and adapt classes to their changing needs and interest. No two classes are the same.

I believe that being a Yoga teacher is a calling for me, I want to demonstrate to others that their bodies can change and heal through a dedicated practice, even if that practice begins as one class a week. I am always inspired to see the transformation of students as they develop their yoga practice, to see their bodies strengthen and become more flexible, to watch their stress levels and anxiety diminish, their minds calm down and begin to find some peace and see self-esteem improve. My goal is to help people develop the discipline and focus to create the lives they aspire to and to work on being an example of this. Yoga and yoga philosophy offers an opportunity for people to grow at their own pace and in their own time and I feel privileged to be a part of that journey.

Liza Markova – Knead Yoga Instructor

I’ve always had an interest in the philosophy and cultures of Asian countries. I admired their belief that a person exists on many levels – spiritual, intellectual and physical. This belief meant they have  holistic approach to health and look at the person as a whole.

I fell in love with yoga for its ancient wisdom and spirituality. In 2005 I met my first spiritual teacher. They shared their precious knowledge with me and gave me very good basics for further personal practice. Thus my yoga practice started not with visiting of group classes in studios, but with exploration of my body and mind through a personal practice, studying yoga literature and getting inspiration from my teachers. Practising regularly, I started to feel the positive influence of yoga on all aspects of my life. My immune system has strengthened, my mind became more focused and my happiness increased.

For the past 11 years I’ve taken numerous courses in hatha yoga, breathing techniques, meditation and other relaxation techniques in international yoga centres in India, Germany, France and Poland. I have six years of teaching experience and certifications of the European Yoga Alliance (2010), The Art of Living Foundation (2010) and the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre (2012).

I am very passionate about yoga and healthy lifestyle and I love sharing this precious knowledge with other people. I lead mostly relaxing classes with emphasis on holistic approach and individual needs of my students. Apart from hatha yoga classes I lead deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and guided meditations. I have a Bachelor of Musculoskeletal Therapy which deepens my knowledge of human physiology and equips me with advanced manual therapy techniques. I believe that combining manual therapy treatment and yoga, as a movement therapy, will allow me to help people on many different levels.

Kathie Overeem – Knead Yoga Instructor

I have been practicing yoga since 2008. I started at a university gym where my first teacher was well into her 80s. “Very quickly I realised there is something very special about yoga, I noticed both a mental and physical benefit to the practice”. When I teach, I like to incorporate longer holds in my flows, giving one time to feel into their alignment. I also aim to teach the importance of breath to move and align the body and calm the mind. I am experienced in a number of yoga styles, which I weave into my classes to complement the needs of the students. These include ashtanga, hatha, vinyasa, and yin.

I also have a PhD in psychology and has been trained to make my classes trauma aware. This means the classes are facilitated in a way that encourages individuals to develop a sense of empowerment in their practice and where space for meditation is supported. Overall, I aim to hold space as people build both mental and physical focus, and dive deeply into self-discovery.

Kevin Carpentier – Yoga Instructor

Kevin found an interest in yoga about 6 years ago and it has become his main passion. Recently certified in teaching Vinyasa Yoga, he not only puts a great flow together on the mat but likes to carry that flow all throughout life. If he doesn’t make you go upside down like he loves doing so himself, he will be sure to make you break a sweat. You can expect some type of inversion or arm balance play while practicing with him. His biggest secret and success to yoga he believes is the breath. With each conscious inhale and exhale through both nostrils he allows you to find peace and stillness. The meditation and spiritual aspect of the ancient practice are also very important to him. Come join his practice and you’ll find he is filled with many smiles and hugs.
