I teach yoga from the heart, tailoring each class around major joint and muscle groups of the body, as well as weaving in breathing and meditation practices. My intention for my students is for them to have better understanding over the mechanics of their bodies, in addition to having greater control over their emotional and energetic states. I teach a wide range of students, from children to adults, prenatal to restorative; all of which I am proud to say finish my classes feeling more centred, rejuvenated and satisfied.

Yoga for me is a way of life. The asanas on the mat are but one small part of the larger equation. I try my best to regularly incorporate all 8 limbs of the path.
As a teacher I will always be a student, and my students will continually teach me. I value safety, inclusivity, self-exploration, and self-acceptance.
Luana Wagner is an Yoga Alliance certified 500-hour Yoga Teacher, specialized in Hatha, Vinyasa, prenatal, postnatal and restorative Yoga.

I initially found a Hatha teacher and then tried Sivananda in 1998. I loved how yoga challenged me yet made me feel good after every session. A good friend then got me practicing Ashtanga on a weekly basis, which then grew into an almost daily practice after work and on weekends. I traveled the globe learning under some amazing teachers and I eventually decided to get my YTTC in 2001 with Hart Lazer. Mandala Wellness was created because I felt people were searching for information about health and wellness, and with my years in Vietnam, I could at least point people in the right direction. The timing was right and I wanted to give something back the community.
Sasha's yoga journey began with the need to heal her body after working intensely as a scuba diving instructor. Yoga led to a lot more then just physical healing and now she is sharing her experience and knowledge, received through various trainings around the globe. By using different yoga tools such as asana, breath-work, meditation, sound healing, yoga therapy, blending and mixing, she can help to get the best results for her fellow-yogis.
