I encountered yoga in early 90s, through my interest in vegetarianism, ecology, healthy lifestyle and eastern culture. I owe my passion for yoga and the basis of my practice to BKS Iyengar method, which I have learned since 1998 at Sławomir Bubicz’s Akademia HathaJogi and Adam Bielewicz’s Yoga! Centrum. In 2006 I met the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga method, which immediately became a fascinating challenge for me.

The opportunities of development, offered by yoga, both in physical and spiritual aspect, give me the inspiration to share my knowledge with others. In 2004 I completed the course for instructors of physical recreation based on hatha yoga system. Then, in 2011 – the Astanga Vinyasa teacher training TTC200, according to the Yoga Alliance standard. I deepen my yoga practice at workshops and courses led by experienced teachers.

In addition to yoga, an unpredictable practice of being a mom for three daughters fills my time mainly. They are my daily, invariably huge challenge, and even bigger love 🙂

For me, yoga is the moment when I am happy, I am myself and future neither past doesn’t matter.

I’m a Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher. And I love this style: for its strength, flexibility and flow. I have the “Instructor of Physical Recreation specialized in Hatha Yoga” diploma. I completed a teacher course led by great man and great teacher, Manju Jois. I gained a certificate from “Pregnant Women’s Physical Activity” training.

I had the opportunities of meeting several Masters. But for me, the most important are meeting with people. They teach me faith, humility, acceptance of transience.

The first passion in my life was art. I established it by graduating from Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan. I met the taste of exhibitions and of working in a gallery. Yoga has become my next passion. I’ve been practicing it since 2007. Daily practice, observation of its advantages and “several coincidences” caused me to become a teacher. In 2010 I received “Instructor of Physical Recreation based on Hatha Yoga system” diploma.

I gained a lot of skills in working with body and mind at workshops led by experienced teachers. In my practice I join various yoga styles. Yoga is an art, so it allows creation.

As first I met the B. K. S. Iyengar method (Adama Bielewicz’s Joga! Centrum and Joga na Foksal). For two years I have been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (Przemek Nadolny taught me). In the Iyengar method I value precise body adjustment in the pose. In Ashtanga I found lightness, energy and working with the breath.

Since I was a child, I connected my life to dance. Dance was everything for me until I experienced that yoga can give me a lot more. Not only happiness, but also health, both physical and mental. Since then, Ashtanga became my passion and addiction. It gave me self awareness of my own body and I discovered tangibly that breath is the best fun.

To be able to do what I love and to share it with others, in 2012 I completed the Ashtanga Yoga Vinyasa TTC 500 teacher trainig led by Basia Lipska Larsen according to the KPJAYI method. I also attended teacher trainings with Kino MacGregor, David Keil and other teachers. I spent 2 months in Mysore, India, where I received education directly from Sharath Jois at KPJAYI. Since 2009 I practice regurarly, on a daily basis, because I can’t bear parting from yoga. Yoga is an adventure for me every day, it reveals me new secrets. Thanks to it I know, that through breathing and concentrating I can do everything, and all the obstacles are only in my head. Overcoming them on my mat helps me to overcome them also in daily life.

Moreover I’m a sociologist and a psychologist interested in Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, healthy nutrition, meditation and all that is important and necessary.

Being a natural born warrior, or so I thought, yoga was never on my list. I trained rugby, volleyball and capoeira for years until a series of coincidences and injuries led me to it – for the first time in 2004 (Iyengar style) and, after a lengthy break, again around 2011 (Ashtanga).

I credit yoga and the development of physical awareness, together with mindful bodywork, with having spared me a few surgeries, maybe even sparing me from the wheelchair some doctors had predicted due to spinal damage. Yoga has also taught me to listen more and demand less of myself and of others, to be more patient, struggle less and try to find stability and ease, even when ‘life-asana’ becomes challenging: to keep doing what I do, respect my present limitations and state, and appreciate small improvements without trying to attain some ideal of perfection. While my Instagram may never be the most inspiring for others, I hope my experience can be of use.

I have practiced Iyengar Yoga, Ashtanga Primary Series, and several kinds of Vinyasa, as well as Yin Yoga. The meditative aspect of yoga helps me stay attuned daily to my current needs, while I train both my body and my mind to be stronger, more resilient and more flexible. Far from rigid discipline or orthodox views, I take a consciously playful approach to asana practice.

Apart from yoga and movement, my main areas of interest are bodywork (I practice and teach Contemporary Thai Massage), music, languages and travelling.
