“I’ve always known there was more.
As a child I’ve always been searching for something with a spiritual meaning.
Something that connects everything.
Something that connects body with the soul.
Something that makes sense for the whole being.
I then in London met David Sye, Duncan Wong, Katy Appleton, who opened my eyes to yoga. A whole new world unveiled itself to me, a system which has been helping me to battle through the challenges of life, be it physical or emotional. Yoga has become my lifestyle and spiritual guide. Since 2007 I have been sharing this inspiration and knowledge with my friends and students.
I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years, and in 2012 I graduated from the British Wheel of Yoga certified TriYoga Teacher Training Diploma (276hrs) programme with Susannah Hoffman, Jeff Phenix and Carlos Pomeda. In my teachings I combine my knowledge of yoga with my scientific knowledge (BSc)and Massage practices (ITEC Massage Diploma), yogic philosophy and healing”.
Edina Cservenkova, MSc, BSc, in her classes tunes into the of the group to guide the class through the most suitable yogic practices at the given time.
Edina specialises in working with individuals in Yoga Therapy sessions. These sessions are bespoke practices designed for the individual. Yoga therapy has the incredible power to create safe space for transformation for you.”
Continued professional development has always been my number one priority. I believe, in order to provide high quality classes, sessions and workshops it is paramount that I keep reinvesting into my own development as a teacher, therapist and a person.
