xenia k.

it was 2004 when xenia first engaged in yoga and it changed her ever since. being able to learn and teach this ancient practice are the biggest blessings in her life. through the years of practice, xenia began to understand that happiness does not come from materials or other people, but it is simply coming from our peaceful mind. xenia’s yoga practices are inspired by the concept of vikasa yoga, paired with her enthusiasm and creativity, she combines various styles of yoga practice to create her own style of yoga flow. xenia hopes to help everyone understand that yoga is not about handstand or being a human pretzel, yoga is about being yourself.
