Ashtanga vinyasa is a hatha yoga practice transmitted to Pattabhi Jois from the yoga master Krishnamacharya. It is for students seeking an invigorating approach that purifies, stimulates and energizes. It consists of postures practiced in a fluid rhythm with a concentrated breath, steady gaze, and internal contractions to direct vital energy. Due to the dynamic nature of this practice, one feels completely energized and purified in each cell of the body and also in the mind. More details

Marija first came to yoga through Bikram Yoga in Serbia in 2006 and was immediately drawn to it. Since her move to Luxembourg in 2008, she has been a regular student of Denise Pesch. The physical, emotional and mental benefits that she experienced through the inner exploration with yoga made her realise that she wanted to become a yoga teacher. She obtained her Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher diploma with John and Lucy Scott in 2015. The asana practice within the Ashtanga Vinyasa system is strong, challenging and very rewarding. The attitude of listening, allowing and accepting the intelligence of one’s body-mind is crucial. She wants to encourage students to nurture this loving and caring inner attitude, as through it, their experience not only of asana but of life itself may beautifully change. More details
