Who I am

A little bit about me

My Yoga journey

As a little girl I started attending ballet dancing classes and even though I didn’t follow this path the love for dance and flowing, graceful movement since the early years has become a part of the way I likes expressing myself.

Years later I qualified with YMCA as an exercise to music instructor and taught classes in East London.

My journey with yoga started over a decade ago, when I probably needed it the most…. when I found myself in a stressful and competitive environment of investment banking sector and could no longer ignore the pain in my lower back. I became strongly dedicated to my yoga practice when realising it not only helped with my physical pain but it actually started balancing different aspects of my life again.

About three years later I began spreading my passion for yoga by teaching friends and neighbours and in 2013 I completed the foundational 200-hours Yoga Teacher Training (RYT200) in Sri Lanka with Australian school YogaArts based in Byron Bay (accredited by Yoga Alliance UK) under wonderful and inspiring teachers Louisa Sear, Rose Baudin, Lucy Roberts and Stu Girling. In 2017 I joined my teachers again, this time in Bali to deepen the knowledge and experience of practising and teaching yoga, completing level 2 Yoga Teacher Training (RYT500).

Over time, by learning how to help my lower back I became much more aware of my body, it’s movement patterns and healthy alignment. With regular practice I learned to accept my body’s irregularities and limitations understanding that our bodies and injuries occurring in our lives are very often our best teachers. They make us stop and listen and once we start listening, with attention, patience and dedication, the tools of the yoga practice have the potential to transform our life.

When I teach yoga I want to inspire others to take care of their own bodies, work with their injuries, tendencies, postural habits. When we explore the power of asanas (physical postures), embodied movement, conscious breathing we can find a harmony of ease and effort, not only on the mat but most importantly off the mat. I always encourage everyone to connect with their own bodies to recognise their limitations, imbalances but also their strength and potential and to trust their bodies.

Discovering multidimensionality of our existence through the asana practice, connection with the breath, concentration and meditation opens the door to exploration, authenticity and harmony in body, mind and spirit.

journey of sound re-discovery

I have also been attracted to the sound since as long as I can remember. The love of music has always been an important part of my life although only in my adulthood I fully realised the potential of intuitive expression through the sound and healing power of the sound vibrations that are connecting body, mind and spirit.

This journey of sound re-discovery in recent years led me to train under a guidance of Sound Healers Tom Soltron & Abby DelSol (The Tone of Life, Poland) and Gong Master Sheila Whittaker (Devon, UK) to become a Gong Player/Sound Healer.

Sacred sounds are continually helping me to find a place of happiness and balance within by harmonising the vibrations of the body, connecting with True Self and reaching a state of relaxation where the natural healing process begins. My aim is to share this experience with others, to create a space for peace, clarity and connecting with our own potential.
