“After my first contact with traditional yoga in Sri Lanka, I’ve been firmly anchored in Jivamukti Yoga for over 12 years: it’s holistic approach let me become a loyal student of the method and find great fulfillment in the practice. Initially personal physical disabilities motivated me to dive deeper into yoga teachings, still I find it crucial to understand how our physical body meets our mind’s expectations.

I firmly believe in the power of passing on experiences rather than teachings – as there is nothing more potent than a feeling. My guiding mantra will always be Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra II.46:“Sthira Sukham Asanam: The connection to the earth should be steady and joyful, if you desire yoga; the realization of the oneness of being.“ When devotion meets discipline, magic arises.
