Instructors

Asaf Hacmon - Iyengar Yoga Teacher
Asaf is an experienced Iyengar Yoga teacher holding an Intermediate Jr. III certificate. He is the founder of LiveYoga and a member of the Assessment & teacher training committee of the Iyengar Yoga Association of The Netherlands. As a long-time mind-body explorer Asaf received his first yoga lesson in 1998 from a spiritual teacher with whom he worked closely. Since that first class the seed of yoga hasn’t stopped growing. During the years that followed, Asaf visited India 5 times and studied with different teachers in various spiritual disciplines before discovering and falling in love with the beauty and richness of the Iyengar Yoga method. Asaf had the fortune of meeting BKS Iyengar (Guruji) twice and practicing in his presence as well as studying from his children Geetaji and Prashantji. Teaching style and Emphasis In his teaching Asaf brings together physical yoga asana practice with stimulating non-dogmatic philosophy to create a conscious experience of presence and living wisdom in the body and in the heart. His classes are ever-changing, infused with warmth and vigor, challenging yet never losing sight of the deeper side of practice that calls for open, non-judgmental observation. Following a near-death experience in 2010 Asaf experienced an awakening that hasn’t stopped unfolding. With a clearer sense of purpose and insight his teachings have evolved in a way that point to the true wholeness that lies within one’s own heart consciousness. “It is my observation that unlike our body which will be one day less vibrant, our consciousness will forever sparkle with freshness and nowness. While nourishing our bodies with our practice we should always try and cultivate a present moment awareness that is heart-centered rather than mental. One day this may make all the difference”. Asaf Drawn to non-dualistic philosophies such as Tantric Kashmir Shaivism, Asaf believes in all forms of meditation as gateways to living wisdom, equanimity and joy of being. While practicing and teaching he tries to bring light into the ancient bond between Asana (physical practice) and Dhyana (meditation). Background Asaf holds university degrees in Law (LL.B) and Management (MBA) and has previously worked both as lawyer and director in international organisations. This professional experience gave him an in-depth insight into the psycho-somatic challenges of modern day work and was a catalyst for his realisation of the importance of mind-body balance. Asaf teaches his regular weekly Iyengar yoga classes in Amsterdam, as well as offering Yoga retreats and workshops in Europe and The Netherlands. For more information on his regular classes, see the liveYoga classes timetable.

    "Fantastic"
    Live Yoga is your destination if you are looking for a beautiful studio with excellent teachers who pay attention to the smallest details. Groups are small enough so you can always be sure that you are getting personal attention. Relax and grow in your own rhythm! I am saying this after six years of experience! From Live Yoga website

    This studio is so wonderful that it is completely worth crossing the entire city for! The studio is both a community and a real yoga school with an open-minded approach, where the love and deep understanding of yoga is evident in every teacher. A must try for beginners, intermediate and advanced practitioners alike. From Review Page

    Asaf is a great well-educated Iyengar teacher who can guide you through the classes from beginners to experienced level. He notices every detail and pays attention to every individual. His teachings take you step by step in the right poses; you always learn something new and come out of class more improved then you started. At the end of class your inner body feels more quiet and your outer body more stretched and flexible. The studio is beautiful, clean, and well equipped. Absolutely worth while to go for a visit or a try out-class and have a look yourself. From Review Page

    "Comfortable and friendly atmosphere "
    "For two years I’ve been regularly practising yoga at the LiveYoga studio in my neighbourhood. I learned to appreciate Iyengar Yoga very much through the l guidance of the skilled and experienced teachers there. I love how they all have their own particular style, which all are complementary. The atmosphere and ambience of the school are comfortable and friendly and facilities always super clean and well taken care of. Apart from regular classes, I feel there is an interesting offer of workshops and retreats – in case you want to deepen your practice or take it to another level. Would recommend this studio to anyone! I’ve brought my boyfriend to the studio a year ago and he has become a regular yoga practitioner at the studio too :)" - Google Reviews
