Yoga reveals to me
that I'm not what I thought I was.
Am I ready to see myself?
I was born and raised in Prague, where I studied art & design, and later lived and worked in France and Germany before coming to the United States. I discovered yoga in 1995, and found it provided much-needed energy, focus and the ability to de-stress at a time when I was running a business and raising three young children. I started teaching yoga after teacher training in 2009, while I was still working full time as a graphic designer. The computer-intensive design work created chronic shoulder inflammation such that in 2012 I decided to leave my profession to pursue full time yoga teaching. I've never regretted it.
My yoga and meditation learning continues, including trainings in Kripalu Yoga in Schools, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness, as well as training in Yoga and Meditation for Traumatic Brain Injury. I've taught in a number of corporate, hospital, non-profit and school settings including MIT and Harvard Medical School, and was on the teaching team of a yoga study at the Boston Latin School, led by Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, examining the impact of yoga on teen drug-use risk factors.
My teaching approach integrates yoga, breathwork and mindfulness, bringing a deep sense of connection between yoga and life to my classes. This allows students to find their own mental clarity, balance and inner steadiness, and integrate these qualities into life outside of class. I feel grateful to be working with a diverse student cohort, from teenagers to octogenarians, and see them experiencing the positive impact of this life-changing practice.
Yoga is a comprehensive, disciplined approach to self-study that cultivates health, facilitates psychological growth, and transforms one’s sense of self. While many think of yoga as simply an invigorating fitness practice, the physical practices are only part of a rich, vast, ancient spiritual path of inner development. Explore the path of yoga to live with greater authenticity, equanimity, health and happiness!
