first yoga class was still back in Poland over 12 years ago with the only at that time real yoga teacher, who luckily was trained by B.K.S. Iyengar himself. And as many people who start adventure with yoga I had no idea what yoga was about.
I definitely didn't expect that it would change my life completely and it will become my life.
Since I moved to California I have experimented with different styles of hatha yoga and studied with many wonderful teachers like Anirudh Shastri, Ben Thomas, Erich Schiffmann, Max Strom and many more amazing yogis, to whom I am very grateful for showing me yet another facet of yoga.
Thanks to my dear friends Anne Finstad and Philippe Alexis I was introduced to traditional ashtanga practice as taught by Sri Pattabhi Jois. And after inspiring practice with Tim Miller in Encinitas, ashtanga become my practice. I was drawn to it by incredible fluidity of the movement synchronized with breath and the idea of meditation in motion. For the last couple of years I have been studying repeatedly with such amazing Ashtanga teachers and practitioners like Tim Miller and David Roche. I had a great opportunity to study with Kirsten Berg, Dominic Corigliano, Lino Miele, Nancy Gilgof and many many more when attending workshops or just visiting the town when traveling.
In 2005 I had finally chance to practice directly with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and his grandson Sharath during their World Tour. Since then I have been traveling to Mysore, India repeatedly to study directly with them.
And when I don't practice or teach yoga... I design jewelry in my small studio - beatadesigns. If you would like a small shiny gift for yourself or someone you love let me know.
