Karma is a Sanskrit term that literally means action or doing. In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to action driven by intention which leads to future consequences. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us. Hence Karma says: Be yourself and surround yourself with what you want to have in your life. Don’t’ forget When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
Karma is our greatest teacher, making us accountable for what we do and giving us opportunities to learn from our mistakes and make amends.
So be Good and Do Good; It is a cosmic law; applies to everyone, everywhere, all the time.
Ioana is a certified yoga teacher with over 700 hrs training in various styles such as Ashtanga, Iyengar, restorative, yin, hot yoga, as well as myofascial release and yogic nutrition. She believes in a holistic approach that integrates healthy lifestyle habits into daily life.
With an academic background in Philosophy and a special interest in cognitive sciences, Desire was always curious and fascinated by the ways mind works and found in yoga a perfect playground for such explorations.
Yoga is an inquiry into what it means to be alive, embodied, sensing, experiencing, focusing, engaging and interacting with life. The practice of presence. My classes are relaxed explorations of this presence and are suitable for everyone. Sometimes strong and fluid & sometimes softer with long holdings but always slow and deep with emphasis on the experience of movement and sensations within.
I love the rhythmic fluidity of Vinyasa, the static strength of Hatha and delicious depth of Yin â€“ whichever the style I teach I tend to offer a blend of movement sequences through which we are strengthening, stretching, balancing, expanding, grounding and exploring energies within, returning to ourselves.
