I am a 200 Hour Registered Yoga teacher through Namaskar Yoga Teacher Training with Kathleen Podiluk, E-RYT. I strive to practice and teach yoga with passion and compassion. My impulse to practice yoga was a desire to improve my physical strength and flexibility. It was a decade ago when I took a yoga class that changed my life. I was very lucky to have met my teacher Kathleen Podiluk (Director of Namaskar Teacher Training School) who inspired me to see yoga as a journey. Soon I felt all the great benefits that yoga can offer. Through my daily practice, at home, in the classes and personal study of yoga, it quickly became my passion. This influenced my decision to become a yoga teacher. I appreciate every moment when I can help people to feel better physically and mentally. What is important to me is the harmony between body and mind that comes with practicing yoga, the sense of gratitude and self-realization. Also, I encourage my students to keep a positive attitude with a sense of humor and sense of play.
