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.

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.

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.

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 🙂
