Ewa Juszczyk

Ewa sees Yoga practice as Art, Philosophy and Science. She personally follows the dictum that to be a teacher, one must first be a student. Every single day, situation and student can be the greatest lesson, just stay  open to it, be aware of it  –  practice gratefulness. Passionate, patient but efficient methods of daily practice and study brought her to deepr understanding of what ashtanga method is all about. With greatest pleasure she will share her experience, love and trust to the Ashtanga method. Her teachings are passionate, honest, pure and challenging  with a doze of humor with the purpose to nourish, enhance and regenerate the body, bring stillness to the mind and balance overall personal development. Ewa’s hands-on adjustments are gentle but efficient, often will bring students to the edge of their comfort zone which is always done with compassion, love and good will  based on understanding needs and abilities of an each individual. Everyone has limitations that can be helped with daily diligent practice that’s why Ewa always holds space for her students and never leave anyone behind. Emphasis in her teaching is on proper alignment and unbroken  flow of prana in the body while yoga philosophy is incorporated.
