How did you get into yoga? Why did you start practicing?
In the 2010, I was so stressed due to my job and I was looking for a “natural” remedy, for feeling better. A friend of mine suggested to me to try “Ashtanga Yoga” and I was really curious, thanks to her wonderful words about “yoga”. I tried one class and it was immediately “love at first sight”. In the beginning, I knew only the physical part but for me ,it was enough. I felt relieved and better and in that moment, my yoga journey has been started.
What made you want to become a yoga teacher ?
2 years ago, I realized that during my daily routine, I felt so good and happy during my yoga class, in peace with myself especially…so I finally understood the real “power of yoga”. I simply decided to do my best, in order to spread my gratitude for yoga.
What or Who inspired you everyday?
In my personal life, my family and my husband especially. He supports me, in my passion and studies. He accepts without clue my “yoga time and study”. I’m so grateful to have him in my life. As Yoga Guru, my teacher training was based on Iyengar’s school ! So I had the opportunity to deep dive into this guru’s life and he is a great font of inspiration!
What kind of yoga styles do you practice?
I teach Vinyasa Yoga and I practice Vinyasa and Jivamukti Yoga. Here in the North of Europe, Jivamukti is really popular (it’s a style of modern yoga created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984). When I moved to Luxembourg, I was looking for a studio, only for my personal practice. I didn’t know anything about Jivamukti, but I was really curios to try it. I met my teachers and immediately, I felt home.
What has been your biggest Yoga Experience up to date?
My teacher training for sure! I had a 200h TT, based on Yoga Alliance program. It was super intense and I studied a lot (during the night and weekends also!!). From my personal experience, if you decide to do this kind of “journey”, it’s really important to be 100% focused, because teaching requires a big responsibility and you have to be really prepared!
What advice would you give to someone just starting its yoga journey?
Yoga changes my life, every single day. My advice is to embrace this change, to breath this pure energy! To enjoy the presence, with no judgment and smile, as much as you can!
