Menchu is a registered RYT 200 teacher with Yoga Alliance UK; this accreditation demonstrates excellent standards as set by Yoga Alliance UK. Menchu is also a registered NLP Master Practitioner with the Society of Neuro-linguistic Programming.

There is no better teacher than experience itself; Menchu wonderfully integrates her personal journey of healing the body and balancing the mind, with her constant curiosity for knowing about the true make up of being human, and her passion for sharing this knowledge and helping others improve their quality of life. Her vision is to make the benefits of yoga accessible to everybody, and especially to people with a chronic condition. Amshala was founded in 2013 as a platform for Menchu’s vision.
