I believe tradition and lineage is important in order to preserve the core teachings of this amazing ancient practice called yoga. However meeting people where they are in their practice and life is equally important.
I do my best to teach a healthy practice suitable for the unique person in front of me and to adapt it in the best possible way. My own personal practice and what I learn from my students through teaching serve as the main inspiration tools for designing the classes in the best possible way. As a teacher, I look at every person as a whole and not just muscles and bones. The mental and emotional component, as well as the personal development component through the practice of yoga is something I take into consideration on and off the mat.
At the core of my personal practice and teaching is the Ashtanga yoga method. However I also like to get inspiration from other teachers and methods. After all yoga is just one, the tools are the only ones that change, but the goal is the same.
Our weekly classes include Hatha, Vinyasa, Ledd Ashtanga, as well as Assisted self-practice Ashtanga ( known as Mysore Style). Classes are open to all levels of practice. Come as you are, but with an open mind and heart and let the magic unfold.
I believe in continuous progress, but I also think progress is not always an upward line. Progress has ups and downs. The regular practice of yoga makes us more aware about that. Yoga brings physical and mental health while gradually leading to bigger positive changes in our every day life. Slowly we start taking more positive action into creating and living the life that we envision.
Yoga is connecting mind, body and spirit while building the ground for a more authentic and genuine way of being and living.
I like to take my students on the edge of challenge exactly because it is most often there that we discover who we really are. Regardless of the posture that is being practiced, I always encourage my students to approach the practice with an open mind, kindness towards themselves and others, cultivate acceptance and patience. With dedication and commitment the impossible becomes possible. Yoga helps us to dig more into the mysteries of our own mind and soul.
