Private yoga classes - yoga teacher with medical diploma

The modern world is a hostile place for our bodies.

Back in old days our ancestors had to walk, run and climb trees every day. They did not use chairs, nor cars, nor computers. They sat on the floor, they squatted down regularly. We tend to forget how new our civilisation is. And that it is not neccessarily what we were made for.

Probably your work requires sitting for prolonged period of time. You either drive to work or work from home. As the amount of stress and tasks grow, your shoulders start to slouch. Slowly your back gets stiffer and your breath becomes shallow. As you sit, your back rounds and the head feels heavy. Your back hurts and your neck hurts. The back pain makes you move less. Then your back hurts even more. So you move even less. And so on. Like this little by little the qualtiy of your life drops.

These classes will give you the tools to get out of this vicious circle and make your life better.

The world is as it is. We can not suddenly just walk all day long. We still have to do our work, we still need to sit for prolonged periods of time. But still there is a lot to do!

During yoga classes with me, you will learn how to sit correctly to keep your back safe effortlessly while you work. You will learn how to stand properly on your feet, so your body gets a stable base. You will learn how to lie down well to allow your body to rest. With various yoga poses you will strengthen your muscles and improve body alignement. You will learn how to open the chest and to breathe better. You will learn how to practise safely and effectively. And very importantly, you will also learn how body and mind influence each other. You will get the tools to calm down the restless mind and improve your quality of life.

Yoga practice is a holistic practice. Therefore not only your back, but your whole body and mind will transform.

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 grew up in the family of doctors. From the very early age I was drawn to yoga and started regular practise at the age of 16. Later in my life I went on to study medicine in Warsaw Medical University. After the graduation I started the specialisation in Anesthesiology and Intensive Care in one of the biggest hospitals of Poland.

After some time I realised that I could not provide lasting change to my patients as it comes only from fundamental change of daily habits and personal understanding of one’s body. So I decided to change my career path and became a full time yoga teacher.

17 years of yoga practise, 320h teacher training with Sharat Arora (one of the most renown teachers of India & assistant of BKS Iyengar for 7 years), consistent everday practise and continues research on yoga gives me strong foundation to successfully help my students to explore their imprinted patterns and experience the tremendous change in both body and mind.

Medical studies and deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology help me to make the classes safe for my students with all kinds of body constitutions.

And my serious meditation practice (13 years of Vipassana Meditation practice and regular intensive silent retreats) helps me to connect with a deeper level of the mind and to understand better everyday struggles.

Since I moved to Switzerland I conduct private yoga classes in Swiss Riviera (La Tour-de-Peilz, Vevey, Montreux).

Education

I have studied medicine at Medical University of Warsaw (for 6 years).
I have been practising yoga for more than 17 years with qualified Iyengar teachers. I have completed intensive Yoga Teacher Training in Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India with Sharat Arora (one of the most renown teachers of India & assistant of BKS Iyengar for 7 years).

Experience / Qualifications

Since 2018 I conduct group and private yoga classes.


At the moment, I give the biggest focus to private classes as they are simply the best for you.

Each of us has different body, mind and challenges, therefore group classes are always some kind of compromise. On contrary during 1 on 1 yoga lessons the programme is tailor-made for you and so you can progress in the safest and the most efficient way.

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.

Ayurvedic Walking Massage and Intuitive Healing and Relaxing Massage
Ayurvedic walking massage is a highly effective massage based on traditional ayurvedic knowledge (the traditional Indian medicine system). It is a healing massage that first of all works with body and bone alignment and can remedy many different kinds of body pain. The massage furthermore works with pressure points and meridians/nadis and activates these energy pathways and loosens blockages to speeds up the detoxifying process of the Body. It brings the energy back to balance and removes fears and stress from the body. Ayurvedic walking massage is used in culturing a healthy energy system that maintains the health of the person and help in healing acute health problems. Ayurvedic walking massage is therefore at the same time a fantastic massage for your overall health, as it in this way balances all your internal systems and your underlying energy system (prana/chi). How it takes place: This full body massage is performed on a mat on the floor. Walking massage is done by the feet first and finish with intuitive healing and relaxing massage with the hand using essential oil. You just need to let go and Relax

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!

Kenza
Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, Pranayama
A full course of one hour (60 min) with the possibility of reserving for a longer duration (90 min). My classes are mainly oriented on the connection with the breath, the anchoring and the deep muscular work. The lessons are adapted according to the level of the students, and I offer several variations: Hatha Yoga: general category which encompasses most of the styles practiced. "Hatha" means "perseverance", "effort" or even "determination". To be determined to achieve liberation within a certain period. This discipline is in relation with "prana", the vital force and its two components: masculine energies, considered as solar and active + feminine energies considered as lunar and passive. From there was born another interpretation according to which "Ha" & "Tha" would mean the sun and the moon united and balanced through the practice of Hatha yoga. The soul being the sun, constant and stable in its brilliance and luminosity, the spirit being the moon, constantly fluctuating and changing like the phases of the moon. The basic principle of Hatha yoga being to unite and harmonize the opposing energies of the body; the mind and its reactions. We unite the body and the spirit to unite the spirit with the universe. A Hatha yoga class consists of physical postures and breathing exercises. The postures are performed slower and last for a few breaths (30 seconds to a few minutes) to promote anchorage and stability. A real in-depth muscular work. Vinyasa Yoga: the Sanskrit term Vinyasa is derived from 2 roots "Nyasa" which means "to place" and "Vi" which can be translated as "in a specific way". Each movement is linked to rhythm and consciously placed to create a dynamic flow. It is a more rhythmic and powerful yoga which allows to link the postures in a harmonious way with transitions commonly called "vinyasa" and used in particular during the sun salutations. Here we retain the postures in a shorter time than during a Hatha yoga session, but we are still aware of our movements and our alignment. Gentle yoga: for people looking for relaxation, a stretching work inspired by Yin Yoga to release muscle tension and settle into letting go. I invite you to discover Yoga with Hope Arts Studio or to deepen your knowledge if you are already practicing. Meditation: work on the chakras; the 7 main energy centers of the body, often represented by 7 specific colors. During this session, we will focus on a particular chakra to balance and / or unblock it through breathing techniques and guided meditation. We will also explore mindfulness meditation, bringing the moment to the present moment, reconnecting to your “inner self” consciously and without judgment, examining thoughts and emotions. This practice is beneficial for relieving tension and everyday stress. Possibility of private or semi-private lessons in the studio, at home or online. I teach in French and English.
