As a student of yoga for over ten years, Barbora finds yoga to be a healing tool for the body and mind. Emphasizing the (re)connection and appreciation of one’s body and acceptance of it’s abilities is a crucial component of her teaching. Using gentle yet vigorous asana practice, meditation, and breath exercises, Barbora guides her students to be mindful and kind to their bodies while deepening their sense of self.
