Yoga qualification(s) and relevant dates
Workshops and courses that I have attended in the last 5 years
My personal practice
I’ve been practising yoga for 7 years. I’m from Hungary and started practising yoga back there. I moved to London 6 years ago, and since then I’ve attended several workshops and I’ve become a qualified yoga teacher. I teach Hatha yoga, and I believe everyone has their own style in teaching. With the courses I have completed I’m entitled to teach meditation in my classes, and with the Yoga Sports Coach certificate I help athletes in their training by integrating yoga into their daily lives. The greatest achievement so far is that one of my clients (a 41 ys old triathlete) has won his very first triathlon last year, and put it down to the yoga practise we’ve been doing together. I help my athletes to stay injury free and balance their training.
Outline of the classes that I currently teach:
I teach classes in the gym at my workplace (HSBC Headquarters on Canary Wharf), an evening class for all and a lunchtime class for all levels. Also I cover other teachers’ classes since August, 2010. My classes are mixed level classes. As I know how stressful and demanding these bankers’ jobs are, I teach breathing techniques, asanas (focusing on different parts of the body every week), stretching. They are 45 minutes classes, and every class is different, I never teach the same flow, I like to spice them up. Also I have 3-4 private clients a week (one to one sessions). Recently I have started teaching aerial yoga, which is yoga done with the help of and in a swing. The more classes I teach the more I learn and the more I enjoy helping people. I have been teaching a weekly yoga class at Sweaty Betty, Jubilee Place since November, 2013 and I teach 2 classes a week for the residents of New Providence Wharf and Pan Peninsula at Canary Wharf.
What aspects of yoga do I find most fulfilling:
As yoga is about “union”, I couldn’t pick one, I practise the breathing exercises, asanas, meditation as well. I always try to be in balance and integrate every aspects of yoga into my life and daily practise. I love to see my students’ smile after a class, and I know every moment I spend with teaching is worth it.
