The Host

Cayetana Rodenas

I was born and raised in Madrid, Spain.

Since a very young age I got involved in different Performing Arts; I studied Drama, Song and Dance and became a very important part of my life. I also studied Education and worked as a Drama & Dance Teacher for several years. Later on, Yoga came into my life by a beautiful chance, when I was living in Australia.

I completed my YogaTeacher Training there and soon after started working as a Yoga Teacher. After that, I completed my Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Marsha Wenig and The Radiant Child Yoga Program with Shakta Kaur Khalsa.

I also owned my own Yoga Studio in Madrid called YOGA&ARTE for almost a decade, where I was teaching Hatha, Vinyasa and Dynamic styles of Yoga, as well as Yoga for Kids, Pregnancy Yoga and Mom&Baby Yoga.

I starred in a TV program in Spain, introducing the Yoga section and I am currently in the process of completing another project for Spanish TV that will be broadcasted soon!

I am also the creator of a Teacher Training program for school teachers, so they can teach Yoga in schools and share the benefits and joy of Yoga among many children all over the world. Nowadays I spend my days travelling around the world teaching this training.
