Hi, my name is Gosia
The question of who I am is the one I ask myself every day when I sit down on my meditation cushion. This is a difficult question and I am still looking for an answer to it. I believe that as Patanjali's sutras say, our true self is who we are beyond a single role or label. It is our beliefs, values and passions that express our true nature.
I entered the mat for the first time in 2002, right after my studies. At that time, not fully aware of what it is and where this practise will lead me. Since then, yoga has always been with me, sometimes with some breaks but I always came back and then it has supported me in various challenging moments of my life. I tried different styles. I have practised Iyengar for many years. I became a yoga teacher in 2021 and I am still expanding my knowledge, fascinated by the wisdom of yoga that teaches me how to live a full life. I am teaching Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) and Hatha Yoga, in which I weave elements from other styles but also an element of sound that I discovered a few years back during sound bath massage. Since then, I have started to be interested in sound and its regenerative power. I love to combine sound with yoga and meditation.
I live in Brussels in Forest with my family and my dog Lola.
“Yoga is more than physical. It is work on the cells of the body, mind, intellect, and spirit – it involves man in his whole being.”
