Yoga to me is a way of inspiring lives and a meaning of discovering oneself .
I was first introduced to yoga and mindfulness in 2015 by a good friend of mine Justina who invited me to her Kundalini yoga and Ayurveda workshop where I completed a basic Ayurveda course on the 3 doshas or body types and Ayurvedic diet . Motivated by the workshop I started to practice every day . I got so fascinated by the effect of Yoga had on my body and mind . The more I practiced the more connected and calm I felt. I could feel I had really found my passion . I was truly inspired by my amazing teacher Angelika Grohmann who is supporting me all the way on my yoga journey and inspired me to complete my teacher training course .
I spent 5 weeks intense training in the breathtaking Himalayas in Rishikesh, India September 2017, where I completed a 200 hours training registered by Yoga Alliance which included meditation, yoga philosophy anatomy, alignment classes , and the Asana practice Hatha and Ashtanga. Waking up at sunrise starting the day with mantra chanting and silent meditation , doing 7 hours physical and theory practice during every day I went through all phases but most importantly it helped me to go beyond my limits of body and mind . Since my training I keep studying, practicing and participating in yoga events and workshops as to me this is an eternal journey of growing internally .I am truly inspired by such great yogis like Yogananda, Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyengar, K
I find it important to include in my classes not just the Asana practice but also meditation, pranayama , mantra chanting, yoga anatomy, and the science of chakras or energy centers and their connection to the physical and emotional body.
My goal is to transmit the essence and spirit of yoga in a harmonious way through my teachings .
" Keep practicing and all is coming "
