Born in France in 1977, Ibiza yoga instructor Sebastien Carincotte was introduced to the island by his parents, who took him to Ibiza every August for holidays for as long as he can remember.

Little did he know that one day the two paths would cross, and form the basis of his own very successful yoga school – widely regarded as the most beautiful yoga studio in all of Europe – Hot Yoga Ibiza, where today he teaches Hot Yoga, CORE 40 and Ashtanga classes all year round. Read more
