I’m very happy that I have the opportunity to share and spread that which I love. I love sharing moments of peace as well as moments of physical expression of the soul and the body. After each lesson I feel that what connects us all is the breath, the need for health and the thirst after knowledge and light!
My love for knowing about the body, movement, and alternative ways of managing energy, led me to the path towards Yoga. All levels of learning yoga consist of a series of exercises that strengthen the body, calm the mind and lead us into a more harmonious and balanced state of being. They include Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques) and relaxation at the end of the class.
