Who am I?

Let`s have a look... 


     My childhood dream was to become a doctor and help people to be healthy. My life planned a different future for me and this caused that I was working in big companies (FMCG and Pharma) for very long time - sitting in the car or behind the computer screen every day. My body asked for help very much, but I did not listen to it till the first pain in my lower back and problems with sitting, exercising and moving.


     This pain pushed me to the action! 

I tried different aerobic lessons and later also yoga lessons, what helped not only with my backache, but also loosing weight after giving birth of my son. During the pregnancy I gained more than 25 kg in 9 months and thanks regular exercising and well balanced food I was back in the shape in 10 months.

    That inspired me to become an instructor and give lessons too. And here starts the future of my current life! I am giving lessons of aerobics and yoga for more than 15 years now and during this period I also chose to study College of Physical Education and Sport what helped me to know more about the human body from anatomy, kinesiology, diagnostics of locomotive system, physiology of sport and exercises, biomedicine to health and sport psychology perspective.


    Gained these knowledge, years of experience and practice are very useful to have an overview about human body and see it from many aspects.   

So, here I am - ready to help your body to feel heathy and balanced
