A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

My yoga journey started in my early childhood, with yoga classes in my nursery and a children’s book about animal yoga poses was one of my favourites. 


I have always been fascinated by the body and movement, and I remember myself as a child sitting on the floor cross-legged with an article about meditation in front of me and I was doing my best to meditate. I vividly remember the struggle as I was doing everything that it said, but nothing seemed to happen, and I just couldn’t understand why. I had no idea what was supposed to happen but I just knew there was more. 


The wondrous possibilities of the body and my love of movement got me into ballet in my early years, and I continued with all sorts of dance; from hip hop to break dance. As I was training for many hours a day, yoga was an essential part of my training in order to be physically and mentally prepared for performances and competitions. Towards the end of my study at Art College, I decided to break away from dance in order to dedicate more time to my own artistic development, as painting and creating is my other passion. 


In the same week that I left the dance studio, I joined regular yoga classes. At that point, my personal practice was already quite strong and consistent; Yoga, meditation and art changed the path of my personal development a lot. I continued my art and design study at University, and that was the time when I deeply fell into different styles of yoga. I moved to England in my second year of studying and soon after graduation, I went to India to do my yoga teaching courses. 


I first graduated from the 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa in Samporna Yoga, Goa and straight after I did 200 hour teacher training at Sattva Yoga Academy (Vedic and Tantric transcendental wisdom, Sattva yoga, Kriya, Naad, Himalayan Kundalini, Laya, Hatha Vinyasa, Sattva Meditation). 


I am constantly taking workshops and classes, and my passion for yoga is only growing and developing. 


I am currently working and offering classes in Leeds, U.K.
