About The Teacher

My name is Barbara, founder of YogaGo. As someone who is lucky enough to call Menorca my second home, spending much of the year on this beautiful island, I wanted to find a way to share it with like-minded people. I wanted to enjoy it with those who may need to retreat, to heal, to meditate or maybe want to find space in their lives just to breathe. To me, the way to do that was simple and so, Yoga Go was born.

Most of my life has been spent involved in the health and fitness industry in one way or another; as a secondary school PE teacher, personal trainer, and lecturer in health and fitness. Sport and exercise has been my life and I love it, but marathon running and cycling took its toll on me. I turned to yoga to see if I could heal my body and, in doing so, found much more. I’ve met some fantastic people through yoga, people who have taught me so much about integrity, respect and that it’s ok to be me.

I teach Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga and am currently taking my advanced training in Yin Yoga

I can’t wait share what I’ve learnt and I’m looking forward to meeting you, hearing your story and being a part of your yoga journey.

Namaste x

“Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us.” Thich Naht Hanh
