About Me

Irene Ibba the Yoga Teacher

I began practising yoga in 2009 while working as a Biology researcher.

Yoga was a revelation to me as, from my first time on the mat, I felt a direct and extraordinary connection between my body and mental state. In 2012, during a stressful period in my life, I decided to deepen my knowledge and practice of yoga and attended my first teacher training, Yogalife. Since then both my personal and professional lives have changed.

Fascinated by young human beings and the powerful benefits of yoga upon them, I then deepened my studies with Yogabeez and am now a certified yoga teacher for children and teenagers.

My pregnancy in 2013 made me understand how my body was changing, the benefits of yoga in its entirety, and I trained with Carla Anselm to teach yoga prenatal and postpartum.

I am an active person, I like to practice and teach Hatha yoga in a dynamic way, but I am also aware of the importance of slowing down and consciously resting to live life to the full. That’s why I love practising Restorative yoga and in 2017 I became a Restorative yoga teacher.

The more I learn, the more I realise that it would take several lives to know everything! I stay humble and full of gratitude towards my teachers, while continuing to develop my knowledge and to prepare for further qualifications.

I teach yoga because I would like to share the many benefits of its practice, physically and mentally, with as many people as possible. Yoga gives all of us the tools to listen to our bodies, our needs, and to discover and accept ourselves. The more I study and practice yoga, the more I am convinced that the only place where we can find true peace and happiness is within us.

So please join me and discover your unique and beautiful self.

Irene Ibba: Biologist, nutrition coach and Ayurveda student

I’ve been interested in nutrition since I was in my early twenties as a student and I’ve always tried to cook and eat healthily; but what is ‘healthy’? There are many approaches in nutrition, some are scientifically proven, others are proved in the field, others perhaps are just marketing. Given today’s many food choices, what should we choose to eat to feel good in our bodies? This is the question that brought me to consider this subject more deeply. I’ve found the Taty Lauwers’ approach to be very much in line with both my ideas about ‘good’ food and also in line with the latest scientific research in nutrition and the Ayurvedic approach. Therefore in 2018 I trained to be coach in nutrition following Taty Lauwers’ method.

I am currently training to become an therapist of Ayurveda, the ancient medicine from India, while already practising Ayurvedic principles in my nutrition and life style.

My yoga practice and my scientific background assisted me in finding the work of the medical doctor ,Timothy McCall, looking at yoga as medicine. Intrigued by the therapeutic approach of yoga, meditation as well as the dietary and lifestyle advice he has described in his work, I decided to train with him as a yoga therapist, Yoga as medicine level I.

Today I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned and my own daily personal experience.

Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind”
