About me

“I train and do various sports from early childhood and really every day. Running, fitness training, bicycling, or yoga – to which I was led because of my stormy mind and aching back at the time I was studying law. Since then more than 
ten years passed and today I am a layer and most hours at work I spent by reading and writing, and all of that, of course, in a sitting position.

I know very well what are the consequences of long hours spent sitting, and since then when I was studying I found yoga to be the tool which brings relief and healing. I found yoga to be that sport, which can be practiced both physically 
and mentally, anywhere (yes, also without a mat) and anytime during the day, also beside the working desk. The only “things” that you need to practice yoga is your body and conscious breath to catch your mind’s attention.

After six years of everyday practice I decided to start teaching yoga as I wanted to pass my experience and knowledge to other people. As Registered Yoga Teacher RYT200 (Power Yoga – 50hrs – YoGo – accredited by Ministry of Education of Slovak Republic, Hatha & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – 200hrs – Samasti Yoga – accredited by Yoga Alliance), my aim is to help people, who need to be fit, physically and mentally, since they deliver great results at work, and even though they enjoy career successes, their physical and mental well-being many times suffers (unfortunately many realise that only after long years have passed).

I believe that long term success is mostly possible due to healthy body and positive mind set. I believe that both can be achieved, that it does not have to be one, or the other.”

What kind of teacher am I?

When it comes to anatomy and physiotherapy, I am very strict, responsible and without compromises in following the principles of how human body functions. On the other side, when it comes to spiritual side of yoga, I am very kind, liberal, playful and curious.

This is what I mean with functioning of human BODY. Many of us know the famous Archimedes’ principle, but many of us also do not know how to apply it in everyday life. As a teacher I am trying to connect theory with everyday practice. I always say “to take your yoga outside of yoga mat”. You can apply this in the way you sit, or walk, or even drive, telephone, or carry your shopping bag. I never use Sanskrit names for naming the positions, but I always name muscles which are used during practice, I speak about common errors and I walk around yoga practitioners and fix their poses.

When speaking of MIND, my aim is to awaken your will to work with your mind, to learn to calm down, to turn off any personal, or career worries, to reach out for present moment and consciousness. There are many tools how to achieve this. I prefer to use positive psychology, I find inspiration in everyday life experiences and my own growth. During yoga class I always encourage for smile. I believe that SMILE is the most 
beautiful and most important asana of all.

Rules of body

Yoga is not gymnastics, nor acrobatics. Therefore, if you want to do it for a long time and keep your body healthy, you should practice using the basic principles of human anatomy and physiotherapy. Certainly NOT with the goal of ``I will put my leg behind my head``, which will most likely slowly damage your joints, or spine plates.

Yoga poses have several, more healthy, variations. You should enter them slowly, keeping in mind your current health condition, as well as physical strength condition. This can be easily achieved by noticing your breath. You are good while you are breathing softly, otherwise you might be reaching a bit too far. As a teacher, I give my students several alternatives how to practice more advanced yoga poses step by step, rather than showing them what I can do
the best myself.

At the beginning of each class I emphasize the difference between discomfort and pain. I give students the opportunity to consult their health condition. I explain them few basic principles. I also recommend what to omit in yoga if they suffer certain health conditions.

During the class I help students to practice positions correctly by fixing their poses. I do not mean I push them more than they can tolerate, I mean I touch them softly to achieve better feeling of positions and in such better results – to adjust and align them. If you do not like to be touched, just speak up. 😉

Main goal of my yoga teaching is to relieve and remove back pain, to replace stiff muscles and joints with flexibility (NOT torn tendons, or hypermobility!),
to compensate incorrect movement habits and replace them with correct ones. Last, but not least, my Power Yoga classes are also focused on forming the body with strong muscles and reducing excess fat stores.

Rulers for the mind

Yoga is NOT religion! Please do not mislead yoga with Buddhism, or Hinduism. It is true that these teachings have roots in India, and they certainly influenced each other, but they should not be interchanged. Therefore, in my classes, you will not find any aspect of any religion, thanks God! (any God you like) 🙂

Mind and spirituality are colourful, individual and unique so much,that no science ever dared to define strict rules (compared to human body and anatomy). For this reason, everything I speak during my classes should be understood solely as inspiration. Anyone can choose from this palette according to his own needs, identification, or readiness.

Through practicing of different breathing techniques I would like to help my yogi students to unleash from external effects, and to direct their sight inside. Because there lays the great opportunity to discover noticing, concentration, or vision, which can consequently be utilized in performing effectively at work, or business.

In my classes, I support forming of character skills, such as humility, patience, tolerance and gratitude, to help build better interpersonal relationships, but also relationship to our planet.

I also support forming of relationship skills to ourselves, such as self-acceptance, forgiveness and love.

What Yoga classes do I offer?

You can enjoy my group classes, where I teach dynamic Power Yoga with significant flows, or Physio Yoga as a compensation for daily life, sedentary job and other sports, which is based on Hatha Yoga. In my private classes you can also enjoy other forms of yoga. I use different techniques to train body, as well as mind, 
in accordance with client’s individual needs.
