About your instructor
Fernando Avellanet – Fernando YogaBasics
Yoga found its way into Fernando’s life for the physical benefits of strength, flexibility and balance while being an avid runner and weight lifter. However, like many people, it was through the values Yoga instilled during his life adversities that he continues the path to embody the true-self-living and practice of yoga today.
Fernando is a lead trainer on the topics of Yoga Anatomy and Physiology for Deborah Bennett’s Heal Me Institute and is also E-RYT (Experienced – Registered Yoga Teacher 200 Hour) and YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) by the Yoga Alliance. He has been teaching since 2010 for divers markets in the Yoga and fitness industry with multiple certifications, continuing education credits and trainings (LesMills, MOSSA, YogaFit, AFAA and NASM) and is constantly amazed to learn how Yoga in particular has the power to transform one not just physically but mentally as well.
Fernando has taught Yin Yoga for three years now and is fascinated by its true philosophical roots and the deeper explorations of the mind and body.
With the workshop “Intro to Yin and the Science of Flexibility” he wishes to immerse students in the safe and effective ways to practice Yin from the fundamental principles in health and sports medicine.
