It was in 2006, on the remote surf mecca of the South Lombok coast, Ashtari’s first Shala was born; a humble meditation hut, tucked amidst lush greenery on top of a hill with breathtaking ocean views over the South coast towards Sumbawa.

Started teaching in 2004 in gyms and well-known studios in Lima, training professional surfers and people with sport injuries. In 2006, she was certified as Pilates Mat Instructor. In 2011 achieved her 200 hrs Teacher Training of Power Yoga and her Certification in Prenatal Yoga.
While she initially studied the Iyengar method and in time explored other styles of Yoga, she eventually developed her passion for Ashtanga Yoga. Marilu committed her way of life to the Ashtanga practice, traveling frequently to Mysore India to study with her Guru Sharath Jois. After many years of self-discipline and patience, she was granted “Authorized teacher” by the Sharath Yoga Centre, MySore, India.
Marilu also studied and performed Modern Dance and Ballet, exploring many types of corporal expression and rediscovering Ecstatic Dance and the power of music for healing.
“Marilu as a teacher is meticulously attentive, constantly reminding all the important alignments, the importance of harmonizing the yogic breath work with the asanas (poses). Marilu has the knowledge and patience to explain what we are doing and why as we move. She speaks properly and elocuently, indicating and guiding us flawlessly through all the asanas. I really appreciate when she uses the adecuate terminology for the anatomy, the names in Sanscrit, English and Spanish. One can definitely see how serious she takes this discipline and India poors out of her pores, but she also has her own beautiful style. She shines for her down to earth personality.”
“A huge plus is the Shala where she teaches. The view from it is absolutely breathtaking. Monkeys playing in the trees that surround the Shala are so wild and beautiful, among other cute creatures.
As soon as I go back to Kuta I will for sure take her class again.
I highly recommend her classes!”
Almitra’s teaching abilities comes naturally as she used to be a school teacher. Growing up she has always felt the need to explore the outdoors and find a deep connection with nature through hiking across the mountain ranges of Java. In high school, hockey was her main sport and this went hand in hand with her many adventures. Then yoga found her. After training and teaching around her home town, she moved to Lombok and joined Ashtari Yoga team on the paradise island of Lombok.
Her Vinyasa classes (first trained with Power Of Now Oasis), highly inspired by the peacefulness of nature, carry students through smooth breathing techniques that perfectly syncs with movement. Everyone is guided to move in a very slowness and aware manner, with the balance of challenge and comfort as goals for practice. Over the years at Ashtari Yoga, her knowledge and experience has deepened thanks to over one thousand of teaching hours, many workshops, the mastering of Yin Yoga techniques, the completion of an Acroyoga Teacher Training (by Hanuman Acrobatic Yoga) and to top it off a successful 500 hour TT in Cambodia (by Neo Yoga India).
“Thank you so much, you are the best! We had great fun, Almitra is an awesome teacher and gets you smiling.
Amazing locations to practice yoga with great food and drinks; Some photos of us practicing 🙂
Keep well, James and Viola”
