Anastasia visited her first Yoga Class in 2015. At the end of the same year, she left to travel abroad. The journey continued for the following 4,5 years. It began as a backpacking adventure but developed into a journey of self-inquiry and continued as the journey to the self.
Anastasia began learning more about mindfulness, meditation, yoga, alternative medicine, healing, and spirituality. She lived in India and Nepal for about 1,5 years, where she established and deepened her spiritual practice. Anastasia found herself through the yoga practice.
In 2019 Anastasia completed a yoga-teacher-training in Rishikesh, India, and started teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes on donation.
Today Anastasia is teaching a vigorous and meditative Ashtanga Yoga-inspired Vinyasa Flow. She teaches intuitively, always caring, with love and compassion to the students.
Anastasia intends to keep moving toward her true, authentic, healthiest, and best self and to inspire others to move in the same direction.
Anastasia's classes, like her practice, are specializing in flexibility.
The Mindful Flexibility originated when Anastasia didn't see any progress in her regular Ashtanga Yoga practice. Thereupon, she developed her form of practicing, combining Yoga Asana with mobility, flexibility, and strength drills, to safely unlock certain Asanas in a goal-oriented way.
