Being a woman is a spiritual experience. It is a journey full of opportunities to practice compassion, unconditional love and authenticity. In this modern day and age one of the most important part for us women is to find the connection between the core of female bodies and our energy flows.
As a women we are shifting through many different cycles during our life time. To find balance within our cycle, to accommodate each phase of our monthly cycles is crucial for our health.It is easy to get lost and forget about yourself and your needs while facing daily challenges and tasks. Overwhelming routine can affect women’s wellbeing. By getting familiar with our cycles and energy shifts we can heal our feminine roots. Healing literally means “to make whole” and this wholeness is unique for each of us. There is no fixed agenda, no stereotype of femininity except authenticity and joy for our bodies and minds.

"My yoga journey started after first yoga class I've tried during early University days, immediately I fell in love with the practice. Few months after I packed my backpack and went to India with great desire to be a student of this beautiful tradition. I was fortunate to study with some of the living masters and being blessed with opportunity to teach what i love, live and what i practice in every day life. I believe that our life itself with all ups and downs is a spiritual path and yoga is one of the tools which can help us to be better version of ourselves, to practice compassion and loving kindness. Sometimes during challenging times of my life stepping on the mat and doing daily practice ( even if only for 10 minutes) was only thing that made sense in chaos, it made me more grateful for the yoga teachings and hopefully my journey of being yoga student and sharing experiences and teaching will continue as long as i live."
