Yoga is the union of body, mind and soul. Awakening to the self. Ashtanga is fundamentally a path of spiritual transformation and personal development. Ashtanga yoga wakes up the internal fire and life energy. Vinyasa is the breath-synchronized movement. By practicing the correct order of the asanas(postures), it creates a continuous flow of energy that heats up the body. As concentration increases, the breath, mind, body and soul come into union. Traditionally, students are practicing every day except Saturdays, full and new moon days.
Pranayama- Life force expansion by breathing techniques
Pratyahara- Withdrawal of the senses
Samadhi- Perfected concentration
Bandha- internal lock
Drishti- vision point
Mysore style is the traditional method to practice Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
It gives you the space to focus and follow your own breath. Everyone practice independently at their own pace while surrounded by the energy and inspiration of the others in the room. I adjust students individually through the sequence and help them to deepen their practice.
On my led classes, I concentrate on deep ujjayi breathing and the correct order of asanas (postures). We all move and breath together. After a few classes, yogis will be able to memorize the sequence, develop in the postures and enjoy the bliss of yoga.

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing therapy (dating back more than 2500 years). It combines yoga, reflexology, acupressure and ayurveda. Working on the acupressure points along the energy lines (SEN), the massage stimulates the body’s energy level and promotes the natural healing system.
Thai Yoga Massage is done on a mat/futon on the floor, the recipient is dressed in comfortable clothes.
In this process, joints are opened, muscles and tendons are stretched, internal organs are toned, and energy is balanced. The overall effect is deep relaxation, rejuvenation, physical and mental well-being.

I started to practice yoga with my mother at the age of 17. During university, I constantly practiced Hatha Yoga to reduce stress, get flexibility and find balance inside out. Wherever I traveled and lived, I kept practicing and it started to be the part of my life.
I met Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in London and it felt amazing after practicing martial arts for 5 years.
As I moved to Bristol I found a great teacher, Brigid Swanson who inspired and motivated me to deepen my practice and to start to assist on her classes.
I decided to go to India and experience real Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga from the source, at Mysore.
I am certified Ashtanga Yoga Teacher and registered with Yoga Alliance (RYT), which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved Registered Yoga School.
All in all, I’ve been practicing yoga for more than eleven years and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with everyone, who is interested in yoga and would like to be flexible, balanced, healthy and happy.
For many years, I have been practicing tai-chi, chi-kung, Shaolin Kung- fu, yoga, and meditation. I naturally started to be interested in holistic therapies, Chinese medicine, and energy healing.
My favorite massage is Thai Yoga Massage, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to complete a traditional Thai Yoga Massage (Nuad Boran) training, certified by the Ministry of Education of Thailand.
I am certified and insured Thai Yoga Massage therapist, and member of the Thai Healing Alliance International (THAI)
