Yoga has been my life passion for 16 years. I have been practicing Ashtanga Yoga for 12 years and I am a certified teacher after finishing a teachers’ training course guided by Basia Lipska. I met many teachers in different phases of my life journey. I learned from them by participating in classes, workshops, lectures and also by assisting them. I also finished a sports instructor course.
I am currently developing my practice under the guidance of Saraswathi in Mysore at Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in India. I teach Primary (Yoga Chikitsa) and Intermediate (Nadi Shodhana) Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and also pranayama. Ashtanga means Eight Limbs Yoga – therefore I treat it as a whole – the eight aspects of the yogi’s life.
I have been teaching Yoga for 14 years. Nowadays I teach mainly in Warsaw however I also cooperate with schools and students in Cracow, Łódź and Poznań, where I give workshops and cyclical classes. I also organize few days workshops as well as for beginners, advanced practitioners and teachers.
Yoga is a practice that taught me to perceive the human being as a whole and at the same time gave me the chance to heal when the conventional and academic medicine approach closed its doors on that possibility. I went through a long path myself from being ill to feeling healthy again. And that transformation took place in me with the help of the Yoga practice and hard work.
That’s why Yoga is for me not only a path to development but mainly a tool to heal the human being in different levels.
Many aspects I teach I experienced myself. During all those years in my classes an uncountable number of people appeared. People whose lives put them up against a wall both of health issues and also other aspects. I prefer to help exactly those people as long as they are ready to perform a repeatedly deep, real hard work regardless of the state which they are at.
I have experience in working with people with terminal illness, after accidents, with all kinds of injuries, with emotional problems, with physical and psychological weakness (in terms of physical and mental health rehabilitation), with elderly people, with pregnant women and athletes (as a complimentary activity to their training, or by fixing their bodies after a trauma or even alleviating negative effects of such sport modality). In one sentence that’s the Therapy Through Yoga I work with.
I also teach healthy people Ashtanga Yoga, who want to develop their practice with awareness and understanding and wish to acquire skills of an independent practice and self adjustment.
