A diverse experience throughout various cultures brought me to Naples/FL 20 years ago. Born in Warsaw/Poland, I studied at the University of Vienna after which I spent several years working and traveling as a translator. After settling down in Naples and working in the family antique business my personal journey brought me to Bikram Yoga, massage and holistic nutrition.
Within one year of my fathers death, my family and I moved to the States. These two major life changes had me feeling lost. A well known Naples yoga teacher , Alananda, helped me find my way through yoga...
He introduced me to the Sanskrit, Hinduism. meditation and asanas.
He also introduced me to my first Bikram Yoga class!
While entering a brightly lit 105 degree room, with 40% humidity, huge mirrors, and a tiny woman giving commands, i thought..what have i gotten myself into?
It was so different from my gentle Hatha Yoga practice with my previous teachers.
By the end of the class, my confusion and annoyance passed and I was hooked. The heat, structure of the class, and challenge had me coming back. Now, 10 years later, I am a teacher myself and a dedicated student within a wonderful loving Naples community.
Massage, to me, is a way of helping people. It provides well needed relaxation and healing through touch- a great compliment to yoga.
Cupping massage is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which cups are applied to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy.
My journey helped me realize the importance of proper nutrition. The body can only be so healthy through exercise alone. Ensuring you are fueling your body with the right food will skyrocket the mind & bodies health!
I continue my education now through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Studding there provides me with the resources needed to share the knowledge of proper diet and healthy choices.
