Phrases such as “when I was a child I knew I was going to teach yoga and help people” sound like a cliché – but it really is true. Except when I was young, and even adult, there was not much of a rumor or hearing about yoga, or ayurveda in Poprad (where I grew up)… But there was a library – one of the most amazing places in every city or town – books that I have been eager to read… so I had already read old Indian epics of Ramayana, Mahabharata and many books from the “Philosophy”, “Esoteric”, “Healing” shelf in high school. During my teenage years and college studies, I discovered many of my passions – dance, yoga, aromatherapy and ayurveda. I traveled to India, where I deepened my knowledge and experience. I attended Hatha and Ashtanga yoga training. After returning from India I moved back home, under the Tatra mountains. I decided that I had to work on my dreams here because I feel my place is here. At Harmony studio I teach group and individual yoga classes of various kinds.
