I was born in Poland where I spent the first 19 years of my life. My early passions were foreign languages, music, guitar and motorcycles. When I was 20 I moved to Ischia in Italy, where I discovered my love for the sea and Italian culture.
How It All Started
In 2010 I was lucky enough to take part in a ground-breaking and inspiring performance at the Barbican entitled ‘Trilogy’ by Nick Green, an “intoxicating celebration of women, feminism and the power of nudity” and discovered the completely powerful feeling of connection whilst dancing naked with a large group of women in front of an audience of 1000 people. Since then I’ve dreamed of creating events of my own that produce something equally powerful and positive.
Also in 2010 I had my first experience with movement mediation – 5 Rhythms. I immediately fell in love with it. I remember feeling intensely alive when dancing. It was like breaking through to freedom through movement. Since that moment, I have travelled to mainland Europe and the US on my own journey towards finding a way of making my passions come to life.
On leaving Italy, I moved to the UK to study integrative psychotherapy at CCPE where I completed a four-year course in 2012. It was during this training that I was introduced to breathwork, movement therapy, dreamwork, mindfulness and working with the creative imagination. During the course I completed 650 hours of practice as a trainee psychotherapist. In this time I helped a wide-range of clients of all ages and cultural groups to come into a deeper relationship with themselves.
In 2015, I went for a solo trip to Bali and India to take a rest from the city rush, replenish my vitality and gain new life experiences. During eight months living in Asia I learnt different meditation techniques, practiced yoga, lived mindfully without a TV, ate healthy, enjoyed a slower pace of life…basically everything I didn’t have time for in my busy life in London.
Whilst there I developed and ran workshops on creativity, mindfulness and movement, inspired by the beautiful experiences I was having along the way. I felt my passion for connecting others to their own energy come to life ever more strongly. Since that time, people from all walks of life have taken part in my workshops, from the shores of of the Indian Ocean in Bali, to the offices of the London Mayor, City Hall in London. Why not join me as part of your own journey?
There has been many twists and turns on my career path. All of it has been an invaluable experience and led me to be where I am now. I’ve reached another crossroads in January 2018 and I took a new direction toward becoming a Yoga teacher. I packed up all my London life again in a couple of boxes and went to Thailand to study Yoga at Agama Tantra Yoga school.
Prior to my Yoga practice I’ve been committed to 5 Rhythms for many years and I’ve treated it as my spiritual practice and the expansion of self-awareness through the movement. There was a turning point in my life when my mother died. I stopped dancing and I was drawn to Yoga. I needed a practice that would keep me grounded and present in the moment. Through meditation, breath and asanas I felt I could cope better with the grief and I felt more connected to myself. What I love about Yoga is the balance between mind, body and spirit.
My teaching style combines physical aspect of Hatha Yoga and meditation with emphasis on the energy flow. There is too much focus on the physical in many Yoga classes in our western society. It became a trend and it gives impression that everyone who practice Yoga is young, very fit and able to do the most challenging poses. Yoga is not about how acrobatic you can get! Well, if you can – good for you
As a Yoga Teacher I want to enhance awareness and acceptance of the body regardless its shape and age and promote healthy and balanced life style that is both practical and spiritual.
