Alina began her journey to yoga teaching with the year-long 200-hour Ashtanga-Vinyasa teacher training she completed with Jonathan Francis Thompson at Yoga London. This, combined with her study into psychology, led her to find comfort in yoga by learning to live in the present moment with more patience and humility.
She brings these teachings, and her background in traditional Ashtanga Yoga, to inspire her students of all levels to experience therapeutic and mindful classes, whilst challenging each of them individually.
Alina uses a holistic practice to encourage cleansing and toning of the body, mind and senses. She concentrates on breathing exercises to achieve 3-dimensional yogic breath, creating longer breathing cycles to help her students achieve a more meditative state in their yoga practice.
Alina’s personal practice builds upon combining physical yoga self-practice together with nurturing and restorative yoga sessions and Reiki meditation. Additionally, Alina sustains a plant-based diet, encouraging a broad approach to healing the body and mind as well as caring for the living world.
She believes the most important lesson in yoga is allowing yourself the time your practice needs to mature and for the healing process to work.
Alina’s public classes consist of a mixture of Alignment Vinyasa, Slow Flow and Yin. She provides clear and effective alignment cues to help her students build up their strength and confidence in understanding the major yoga postures.
