Ashka first started practicing yoga 17 years ago to help her with a back pain and general stiffness. Practicing asanas and meditation brought enormous positive effects not only on her body but also on her mind. Only five years ago Ashka took her practice to a deeper level, incorporation other limbs of yoga into her life. Seeing enormous impact on her being, she decided to train as a yoga teacher in order to help others to experience the same.
Ashka is a strong believer that yoga is not limited to your time on the mat but can and should be taken into your daily life to improve your relationships and to become kinder, happier human being and to enhance self-awareness. Ashka is also a qualified Humanistic counsellor and her knowledge and experience informs teaching style.
Her classes are slow paced and breath oriented. They focus on finding space and length in a body and activating parasympathetic nervous system which is associated with a sense of relaxation and homeostasis in the body. While practicing postures the students will asked to bring awareness to the breath and 'feeling' sensations arising in the body rather then how the postures look.
