ABOUT THE TEACHER
KPJAYI Authorized level 2
Born on the South coast of Brazil, Aline Fernandes has traveled the world before making New York her base nearly 15 years ago working as a Fashion Model.
After moving to New York in 2002 she took up Ashtanga Yoga, and while continuing her modeling career, and studied regularly with Eddie Stern of Ashtanga Yoga New York. This practice kept her balanced and centered, helping her persevere in the chaos of the big city.
Inspired by what she learnt Aline pursued this path and went to India in 2003 in order to study under the guidance of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois. After that she made yearly trips to India to study with her teachers.
She is authorized level 2 by KPJAYI (India) enabling her to teach the Ashtanga Yoga method. She also studied Transcendental Meditation at the David Lynch Foundation and Vedic Meditation with Tom Knoles.
Aline’s philosophy and approach to teaching emphasizes the transformative quality of the Ashtanga Yoga practice in which movement and breath are synchronized, shifting our perspective to build a comprehensive and accurate conception of who we are and helping us to perceive essential truths about our true nature. Through regular practice, the body will become stronger, purified and aligned, and the mind will grow steady.
Aline assisted Eddie Stern from 2008 until 2013 and taught at AYNY (Ashtanga Yoga New York) during the same period. Also taught at Tumblr’s NYC Headquarters, Nike and led workshops and retreats in Brazil, Hawaii, Uruguay and Spain. She has also taught a children’s yoga class at Lycee Francais in NYC and was part of a program at Long Island University ( NY ) teaching Yoga for people over weight.
She lives between NYC and Brazil where she has been sharing the yoga practice. Names like Diana Picasso, Gaia Repossi and Jessica Biel have taken her classes.
All her Yoga Retreats have a sustainable approach, supporting local environmental and social projects and organizations.
She runs Vida Yogi, a platform that shares this yoga practice all over the world and spreading the method to vulnerable communities and environments
