About Me

My name is Ioana. I have started my career in 2001 as a senior curator while continuously gathering new competencies in the areas of project management and graphic design both in Romania and USA. I have a BA is Arts History and Restoration, and a Diploma in Museum Studies.

In 2010 I decided to pursue my lifelong dream and enrolled in a Master of Divinity in Buddhist Studies. I had trained to lead meditations in mindfulness, loving kindness, exchanging self with others to name but a few.

Besides my expertise in Buddhist philosophy and psychology, I posses certificates in ADHD: Everyday strategies for elementary students; Mental Health: A Global Priority; Medical Neuroscience; Positive Psychology; Morality of everyday life and Public Relations.

I am a certified trainer, LPC, CARCSLR and a clinician in training. I am also the owner of KarmaSutta Counseling, a private practice that emerged from my humble motivation to be of help to adults, adolescents and younger children in dealing with situations that they perceive as burdensome.

My name is Ioana. I am a certified counselor and a clinician in training. I lead workshops on parental education in order to raise the awareness it is better long term to raise our children in a healthy manner than to go through therapy later on in life. This 1 hour class will show you the correct educational method to use when interacting with your child in order for him/her to develop his/her own internal resources and why this theoretical knowledge and its practicality are more effective than the try and error methods many parents use till they become exhausted. The class is structured in a condensed manner for you to learn the basics of a mindful interaction with your child. Thank you and hope to see you attending my class!
My name is Ioana and I am certain it will be a beautiful experience to work with you here on Apprentus. I specialize in Social Sciences and Clinical Psychology while having a keen interest in making the world I live in a better place. My goal is to create interactive classes in which I combine my expertise in psychology with an understanding of the impact and implications of globalization in today’s society while setting up the motivation to be of help to my students in their process of self discovery and making their aspirations come true. In this respect, I will challenge my students with philosophical questions about the ethics of engaging with each other from a win-win perspective as for them to develop a sense of understanding we are all interconnected and their decisions will impact not only themselves but those around them as well. This is my first class on Apprentus and it is about developing successful careers while avoiding burnout. It is designed to be practical and to enhance my students' self confidence from a mindful selfless rather than selfish perspective yet assertive after only 1 hour spent with me. This class teaches lots of practical tools for anyone who wants to become an active successful agent of benefic change. The focus is for students to learn to develop their career in simple steps that anyone can easily apply and, at the same time, remain positive and energetic It emerged from my own career as I used to manage large teams of people into successful ventures with little to no funds at all. Is it possible? Yes, it is and I will make sure this course will clarify the steps that support your career development in all its layers in a practical straightforward objective-based trustworthy method. You will learn: - to engage in a project by setting up the right motivation; - to make a consistent plan for your projects; - to be flexible in response to the business climax, to your partners and anyone involved; - to be mindful and future oriented in your business partnerships; - to be confident and honest in your interactions; - to make business with Intention; - to eliminate pressure, stress and burnout.

Justyna
University classes (psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, linguistics)
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy and linguistics. What can I teach? - I can prepare you for exams in pedagogics, psychology, philosophy, linguistics. - Psychology (developmental / school / clinical / social) - Philosophy (mainly ancient philosophy, e.g. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) - Linguistics / phonology / grammar / syntax During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps/diagrams to show connections between ideas, etc. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding.

Private Yoga classes (Iyengar, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Ashtanga) at home
Having 20+ years of experience, I am interested in sharing my knowledge of yoga and the benefits of Reiki (energy harmonization) with everyone. I was trained in India where I lived for several years (Iyengar, Sivananda). Iyengar's individual approach allows you to work the postures accurately using the breath, without hurting yourself, learning to listen to him. I currently practice dynamic yoga based on a series of postures by consciously breathing that allows the mind to gradually let go. Private lessons allow you to establish a personal practice program. After a first interview, during which your motivations and needs are studied, you will leave with a personalized session to practice at home autonomously. I establish and guide a practice that will be reevaluated and intensified gradually by integrating reflexology and Reiki (energy harmonization) during each course. Private lessons can be done at the teacher's home or in English or in French. Enjoy a moment of well-being!

Online Pilates classes private or in small groups in your place.
Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. With systematic practice of specific exercises coupled with focused breathing patterns, Pilates has proven itself invaluable not only as a fitness endeavor, but also as an important adjunct to professional sports training and physical rehabilitation of all kinds.

Personalized Yoga Sessions (taught in English). Online and In-Person
Having a physical and mental outlet- such as a regular home yoga practice- is so important. During the first confinement in France, I turned my in-person yoga classes into online sessions. The virtual classes I teach have proven effective for my beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. I have also resumed teaching in-person yoga sessions and classes in Paris. Yoga aligns your physical movement with your breath and increases physical strength and flexibility. Practicing yoga with a private teacher enables you to have the proper alignment for the postures, which ensures the most benefits. Yoga is great for people of all ages, shapes, and physical capabilities. Just a few of the many benefits of yoga include relaxation, relief of back discomfort, muscle tension, and stress. The private lessons that I teach are tailored to your goals and physical abilities. Yoga sessions will be given in the comfort of your home, or outside as weather permits. I am happy to answer any further questions you have, or set up a session with you at your convenience. Please take note that different fees will apply for groups, or corporate classes (depending on location and number of students). Thank you!

Rafaël
Philosophy (initiation or deepening, all concerned)

For those who want to go further, I propose more in-depth courses in the following disciplines: general epistemology, anthropology, philosophy of science, philosophy of nature, moral philosophy, aesthetics, metaphysics.

Nadège
To progress in French and in philosophy with a professional of the particular course (more than 10 years of experience at your service!)
Presentation : Already a twelfth grade in private class ... It is completely by chance that I started in this activity at the exit of the college, not wishing to pass the CAPES immediately and finally, I found the job that suits me in every way. Each new student is a new adventure: human, cultural, psychological. The private lesson is a space of exchange where one can answer in a perfectly adapted way to the problems (sometimes to the distress ...) of a young adult in the making. After practicing in Marseille and Rennes, I live today in Finland! But I do not intend to stop my job that I always practice with passion and I'm looking for students who want to work by webcam, to complete my schedule. The advantages of the course by webcam are numerous for the student: - Relax at home in a familiar environment. - Quick exchange of documents: in my subjects, one always needs an unexpected text which invites itself according to the conversation! - Flexibility of the organization - Ludo-educational use of the web etc. CV COURSES - Since 2011: Teacher in private lessons in my account - From 2007 to 2011, Teacher Acadomia / Anacours / Completude / Legendre (2013): private lessons - From 2007 to 2011, Acadomia teacher: intensive internships (French, philosophy, methodology of high school work, orientation) - 2010: Educational consulting for Acadomia (creation of new services, analysis of teaching aids etc ...) OTHER 2018: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of the military history book "Les dragons, from the origins to 1918" by Nicolas Bretegnier and Eugène Lelièpvre, published by Epopée 2013: Orthographic and syntactic corrections of Claude-Louis Moreau's book on political philosophy "Réinvestir le politique", published by Éditions L'Harmattan, collection "contemporary issues". License of Modern Letter (AB Mention) obtained at the University of Provence in 2007 METHOD - Identification of the gaps: "anyway, I'm bad in French!" Alas, many students take their bad notes for a fatality, even for a personal judgment. They feel deprived and devalued. To return to success, it is essential to understand the reasons for the failure, and fill the gaps, little by little, but with determination! - Methodological approach of the disciplines: In French (or in philosophy), the student often thinks that there is nothing to do! The lack of working method is the first factor of failure unfortunately. Over the course of the course we will make sure to restore a working method conducive to success in the subject, and of course, we will focus on the methodology specific to each type of exercise requested (essay, comment etc.) - Content developed to develop the curiosity of the student and reconcile with the subject: without active collaboration of the student, the private lesson is vain. That's why it's important to stimulate it rather than force it to swallow. However, do not hide it from us: as in all subjects, there are boring steps (I feel a sincere compassion for high school students who are confronted with the learning and identification of text registers by example!) - Adapted and individualized teaching materials: this is one of the advantages of the private lesson! The teacher adapts and invents daily. I would not want to work myself with a support that I would have tired, anyway! - Method of work entirely based on the exchange and the putting in confidence of the pupil. The private lesson is a particular time of school life. It's not just "school after school". The pupil must face his shortcomings, must accept his errors as well as his weaknesses. In a teenager's life, it's like being laid bare. How could he do it if he does not trust the person in charge of helping him? As a teacher, I am always sincere with my students: I tell them their weaknesses, but I show them their strengths. I try to show them that a note, good or bad, is just a picture, an inventory of their knowledge of a particular subject at a given moment. It is part of my mission to show them that I do not judge them, and that I rely on facts (a copy, an exercise, a report card, etc.) to improve a situation that only requires improve! - Great experience of "Dys": over the years, word of mouth has made me more and more students "dys". Since labels are often sterile, I focus with them, as with others, on the essentials and try to distinguish between what is traditional and what is not. I would just say that the confidence and lack of judgment I mentioned above is more than crucial here! One thing is certain: a dys can do everything in French or in philosophy (and in general, in high school) despite the difficulties! Superior : Methodology of the dissertation, the structuring of a writing, the synthesis of documents, correction of memoirs and internship reports, preparation for various competitions (paramedics, business schools ...) - Follow-up of out-of-school students (medical reasons, precocity, free baccalaureate candidates, etc.)

hatha yoga according to the iyengar method, private lessons
Certified teacher (2003) by RIMYI (Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute) in Pune, India, Pilar trained in Paris, India and Madrid, She has been practicing Iyengar Yoga since 1991. Alignment, fluidity and listening are the key words of his teaching. His pedagogical approach aims to adjust the posture of each student according to his anatomy and his abilities. "In my classes," she says, "I try to help the student develop a sensitive awareness, to discover themselves by feeling. Thanks to a physical work where concentration and the movement of attention play a big role, the fluidity wakes up in all parts of the body and helps to improve the functioning of the different systems.

David
Online Class of Meditation/Yoga/QiGong/Kung-Fu/Fitness for everyone
After 20 years of practice in a broad variety of sports, my daily practice now encompasses all these styles for a holistic approach to fitness and inner peace. It is applicable to any level, from beginners who want to discover the potential of their bodies to already sportive people who want to increase performance. During the practice, I emphasize mindfulness and sensations for students to learn how to listen to their bodies. If you want to focus on one style more than the others, don’t hesitate to tell me! I try as much as possible to work without any equipment, although a yoga mat would be useful. However, if you already have weights, ropes, or anything else, let’s make good use of them.
