Maria Nowak-Szabat, she graduated from a basic and advanced training course for Sivananda yoga teachers, TTC and ATTC.
„My yoga practice started with a severe spine injury. Yoga was my form of rehabilitation, I regained my full physical function with it. Thanks to that experience I understand well those who suffer from periodic difficulties such as stiffness, pain, limited range of motion. I lead the classes with much sensitivity to needs and abilities of the participants. In introduce difficulty gradually and I make sure that participants feel satisfaction with every step made and deep relaxation after the class. With women I share my experience of practicing during pregnancy and after giving birth to my daughter”.

„When I teach yoga I pay attention to the nervous system. I work with it through deep breath and concentration directed inwards. I lead dynamically, there is a lot of effort in my classes but also relaxation and mind quieting. What I find most important are relaxing breathing and correct, non-injurious performance of asanas.”
