„The beginning is the most important part of the work.“

Marketa Jirouskova

Certified Yoga Teacher

I took my first yoga class with my mother when I was about 14 years old. It certainly was not love at first sight, but somehow, deeply in my heart, I knew that yoga will ultimately find me and become an important part of my life.

This happened about 6 years ago, when I met Amy Elers, my first yoga teacher. After taking my first class with her, I knew immediately that I needed yoga in my life. My body, after many years of abuse with dancing, thankfully accepted this new form of exercise. Asana practice became a part of my everyday life and over time I developed an intense curiosity about the entire yoga philosophy.

Yoga has helped me to become more connected with my body and myself on physical as well as mental and emotional level. My own personal growth and experiences with yoga has inspired and instilled in me a desire to share this ancient practice with others. I completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher training at Joschi Yoga Institute in New York and started to teach my first classes there. My classes are based on Vinyasa style Hatha yoga where working with breath and following its natural rhythm develops and deepens the connection between the body and mind. It is my intention to teach classes where students can start to experience this connection through accessing their own intuition and trusting their natural wisdom. I believe in addressing every student and their needs individually and nurturing an environment that supports the development of their personal yoga practice.
I would like to express sincere gratitude to every teacher with whom I ever took a class or a workshop and to every student who ever took my class; as the students are really the true teachers and inspiration.
