My Journey

I began my yoga journey over a decade ago, when I was introduced to Raja Yoga Meditation and Mindfulness.

A few years later I attended courses in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage (Champissage). I then discovered the vast ocean of Ayurveda and underwent Panchakarma to detoxify my body and mind. It was an extraordinary experience. During that experience I realised the moment, that I was living in the life bound to certain perspective that didn’t support me in a healthy way; it was not close to my own truth and it was not aligned with my visions and dreams for myself. I had made a choice to tune to a new perspective; the power of my awareness that pushed me to find the strength, light and inspiration to start my life from the beginning. I began to practice yoga and instantly fell in love with the body movement, Pranayama, Philosophy and the feeling of light entering my mind, body and heart.

I attended a course led by inspirational teacher Claire Missingham and thanks to her encouragement and my determination; I started attending various Yoga classes daily to expand my knowledge, practices, stamina and inner and outer strength.
