Yoga is much more than doing exercises on a yoga mat. It has transformed me, both physically and emotionally, into a much healthier, stronger, and happier person. It has taught me to release tension, not to overthink things or take myself too seriously, to have more fun and to enjoy a sense of freedom.
Practising yoga keeps me grounded and sane, despite the busy life I lead. Yoga makes my life feel lighter, makes me softer towards myself, and more flexible towards others. Especially after experiencing the impact of yoga on my personal life and health, I am beyond happy to share this with others.
In addition to being a yoga teacher, I am also a freelance copywriter and translator with Leela Words – a creative combination that allows me to move people, which I thoroughly enjoy.
