Yoga for "Broken Backs" - private Yoga Therapy classes

The way we live our lives is a big challenge for our bodies.

Long hours spent on a chair slowly sum up and sooner or later our mistreated bodies fire back with a back pain that can lead to even less activity, which leads to even more back pain, which leads to even less activity and so on. These classes will give you the tools to get out of this vicious circle.

During the class you will learn how to stand, how to sit, how to relieve your back, how to align your body, how to breath and much more.You will also learn how the body alignment affects the state of the mind, thus how to release tensions not only from the body but also from the mind.

Whether you have never tried yoga before (nor any other activity) or you are already an experienced yoga practitioner, all can benefit from learning and deepening this particular approach.

About Me

I am a yoga teacher, medical doctor & dedicated meditator

I have been practising yoga for more than 16 years (mainly Iyengar method) with many great teachers. After pausing my work at hospital I went to India where I completed intensive yoga teacher training in one of the very few serious yoga schools there which was Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India (conducted by Sharat Arora who has 40 years of yoga teaching experience and was an assistant of BKS Iyengar for 7 years) where I stayed for a few months.

Right now I am concentrating on 2 topics that interest me the most: yoga therapy and evidence-based lifestyle medicine.

During the class I give a lot of focus to what can be done outside the class - in other words: how to use our bodies respectfuly in our everyday life, not only on yoga mat.

Education

I have studied medicine at Medical University of Warsaw (for 6 years). After finishing my studies I worked in hospital for 3,5 years, out of which I spent 2,5 years at Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Department.

Experience / Qualifications

I have been practising yoga for more than 16 years. I have completed intensive Yoga Teacher Training in Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India. In my teaching I combine what I have learnt from all the teachers I encountered with my personal findings during my everyday self-practice and my medical knowledge in order to make the classes safe and beneficial for the students.

YOGA DANCE / YOGA DANCE / Yoga dance is a dance yoga
Accessible to all, is a self-healing technique This yoga dance class is a dance yoga class. "Yoga Dancing" is a concept developed by a classical dancer who is based on chakras, breathing rhythms, feeling and energy in motion, using the special sacred geometry, which the dancer needs to move also in height. Also beneficial for dance teachers, dancers-its professionals-it's an excellent way to get in shape after being injured, pregnant or to relax even more. This course allows you to regain your starting abilities and to overcome them. The various figures, sheathing, based on two and on one leg, make it possible to find an active proprioception, and, for seniors, to keep hips healthy. Indeed, from the eyes to the tips of the feet, this dance yoga is advised in more than one way. Inspired by Curative Eurythmy and Oriental Dance, it allows to rediscover areas of the body numb. This practice allows for a greater perception of phenomena that go through a bodily feeling and thus awaken consciousness, clairvoyance, clear hearing, and clear perception. In a stress situation, to know how to manage it to keep the right distance.

Private Yoga & Emotional Mastery Training. Learn to master your emotions and optimize your health & fitness.
I provide a framework of self-analysis and concrete steps to help you free yourself from beliefs and habits that hinder your growth, keeping you on an emotional roller-coaster, and to develop those that support you. This training is undertaken through weekly discussion, note-taking and concrete actions to be taken each week. Yoga therapy such as work on chakra balancing and practices to connect with your spiritual being can be included in this program. The course is designed to: Provide you the flexibility to be able to stay in the comfort of your home whilst your yoga instructor comes to you. And give you the chance for one-on-one quality learning with a program designed specifically for you, according to your needs and preferences. My Yoga Teaching Philosophy: Many of my students, when they first come to me, express their disappointment with some of the yoga lessons they have visited. They find them to be either too much focused on the physical aspect and lacking in real substance and sense of community in the group or, on the other hand, too much focused on the spiritual/mental aspect without much challenge to the physical body. In my personal practice and during my lessons I try to work towards a balance between strength and relaxation, between action and introspection. I do not take myself too seriously, since, for me, this practice should be a joy - a discipline yes, but definitely not a dogma. I would like my students to be able to experience the power of what yoga can offer us and feel at ease with being just who they are: natural, without any need to live up to any ideas of who a yogi 'should' or 'should not' be. This, to me, is a process of allowing time and practice to take effect - a process which we experience both together, and individually in everyday life. All my programs are tailored to your needs and preferences. Yoga and Emotional Mastery training can be combined to deliver maximum value. This training is designed to guide you to develop greater consciousness and master your own sense of health and well-being. Meaning: you build up your own regular practice and habits that will remain with you over the long-term, way beyond the limit of our one-hour lessons!

Private Yoga Sessions- taught in English. Online Classes.
Right now with confinement and social distancing due to COVD-19, it is very important to stay healthy. Having a physical and mental outlet- such as a regular home yoga practice- is so important during this time. I have turned my in-person yoga classes into online sessions. The virtual classes I teach have proven effective for my beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. 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!

Vinyasa Flow yoga classes all levels at home. A fluid, relaxing and catchy practice.
I took inspiration from the anatomy lessons of my teachers in India and Canada to create fluid, tonic and complementary Asanas, my aim being to guide a progressive, captivating and controlled practice. My teaching is accompanied by theoretical references to assist the student in understanding the relationship between body and mind. My classes are also fun and with a touch of humor because yoga is also wanting to do good and keep smiling! We can choose together themes according to your abilities, need and desire so that I can guide you in the practice that is best for you.

Gain an extra 2-3 hours a day every day. increase Confidence, Discipline, Persistence, Willpower, Resilience, and focus in your everyday life. Be happier and at more ease with yourself and life. Slows down the aging process so you look and feel younger and healthier. You will learn how and why your body/mind works the way it does and why its so hard to be healthy, and how to bend this to your advantage. Testimonials: Entering the workshop, I felt my health and productivity were ok and I wanted more out of life. and there I had my mind blown about the possibilities of biohacking. Realising that my body is addicted to sugars 'even though I'm not over weight'. I followed his advice on 10 day detox to unwire the addiction to sugar and I could only do that thanks to the psychologically supporting mindset he gave me. I feel I'm on a whole new level of focus health and productivity and seeing the success, I'm excited to implement more of his advice! - Richard S. I've known for a while that I needed help/support/coaching but not to whom to turn to/where to turn to. Joe provided me with that comprehensive guidance, equipped me with enough information, that I can now make the necessary fundamental changes. Four to 5 days after the meeting/consultation, I started to feel better. - Agneta L. Signup now and begin your transformation to increase health, well-being and performance. About Joe: I've been a Biohacker for over 5 years and have taken my clients' health/performance from a very low place to optimum levels in both body and mind. I used to work in the city where I over-worked and over-ate with an extremely bad diet. Eventually my body broke down and I was transferred from hospital to hospital and the doctors couldn't help me. For over 6 months I was disabled and needed 24/7 care and could only sleep for 30mins at a time. Realising that if I wanted to save my life, then I had to master my own health. From that point on I began an epic transformational journey to master my own body and mind. I tried everything from conventional to alternative medicine and therapies, anything that had even the slightest chance of success. I went to over 30 alternative doctors and took hundreds of different supplements and remedies, studied everything I could about the human body/mind and how to optimise it for health and performance. This goes far beyond medicine and herbs: As Tony Robbins says to be a success at anything 80% is psychology and 20% is mechanics. What that means is that 80% is in your head and 20% is the actual actions to make it happen. Once you get the psychology sorted out then the actions become much much easier to do. Trying to achieve something without getting the psychology aligned is like trying to swim against the tide. If you work on the psychology and get that aligned to your goals and ambitions then it's like swimming with the current. In both cases you still have to swim and put the effort in, just in the 2nd option it's much easier, quicker and with less effort. When I’m teaching one of the most common responses I get is that being healthy is hardwork. My response is that being unhealthy is hard, having health problems like brain fog, high blood pressure, Alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes, those things are hard as hell, literally, being healthy in comparison is a walk in the park. Your body and mind is not a car, if you mistreat a car and it breaks down you can get rid of it and just buy a new one, and another and another, but if you mistreat your body/mind and it breaks down you can’t get a new one! My goal is to help you towards becoming the very best version of yourself. If you haven't already signed up then please do it now. I look forward to meeting you at the workshop and assist you in transforming your life. Anytime sessions are where we agree on a mutual time and place.

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!
