“Yoga is a living art. It’s a means of moving, breathing, thinking, expanding and contracting, evolving and interacting within the complex, ever-changing landscape of the world within and around us”.
Since I was a very young girl I always expressed interest in yoga, spirituality, matters of the soul, the universe, nature, and humanity in general. Most of these things came to me naturally.
I have always enjoyed spending time in nature, hiking mountains, listening to nature sounds, birds, waterfalls, animals, feeling the wind on my skin, or drops of the rain. After a day spent in nature, I would come back home with sore muscles, but a full heart, and usually by 9 pm I would sleep like a baby. In the city, I could never feel that peace and silence, so each time I had a chance I would run to the hills surrounding my home city.
My personality was always more introverted and it would take me time to build connections or relax with unknown people.
I have never been religious, but I have always believed that there is some force that created us and is taking care of us. In the country where I lived these kinds of beliefs were not welcome or they were not understood.
I have always had an interest in health preservation, I read a lot about healthy eating habits, herbalism, healing plants, vegetables, etc.
All these characteristics and interests were preparing me for what came next. It was a matter of time when yoga will open up to me and awaken the seed I was holding buried for so long.
Today I am on this path of self-discovery, body postures, breathing techniques, mantras, and holistic healing. Two things (which might sound weird to you) attracted me to yoga. First I don’t want to be afraid of my death or the death of people that are close to me, When they die I want to say goodbye to them in peace knowing that the body might be gone, but the soul is infinite and it will find some other body to continue its journey. The second reason is that I would like to graciously grow old, feeling fit and healthy until the moment comes to leave this world.
I am happy that there are so many people and studios out there who are sharing this knowledge with the humanity.
