A dozen or so years ago I was a typical young mother- with a husband, two sweet babies and a fascinating carrer put on the back burner, oh, and there was a mortgage too… Seemed like a long and straight path ahead…
Then, just for sport, I started doing yoga in a local fitness club.
And the longer I practiced it, the more discomfort I felt in my perfect life. I started making controversial choices. Facing my own frustration, fear and harsh reality, I started pushing the cubes of this perfect domino, building my life anew.
Today I’m a mature, independent and self-confident woman. I love my life!
I don’t claim that all of my choices were good, that I always knew what to do, nor that I was always brave and unbreakable.
I’m still afraid of failure and loneliness. Sometimes I feel down in the dumps, sometimes I behave irresponsibly…
Yet I’m in touch with myself and I can forgive myself for the mistakes I make. I trust my intuition. I can handle stress, fear, uncertainty.
It turned out that yoga is not fitness or gymnastics. It’s a tool, transformation, the way. I won’t tell you where it will take you, but I’m sure it will make the road easier.
I’m Ewa Sutryk. My contact with movement began in high school, when I did various types of fitness, swimming, dancing, climbing, cycling etc. For over 13 years I’ve been continuously practicing a dynamic kind of yoga- Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Yoga practice has taught me perseverance, humbleness and acceptance; it has also brought more balance, consistency and joy into my life. I love people I meet on the mat- they are a gift and an inspiration for constant growth. I approach each person with mindfulness and love.
Since 2012 I’ve been a teacher in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition. In 2011 I went to its birthplace- Mysore in India, where I took part in a course in asanas and pranayamas. In 2012 I participated in a teacher training since when I regularly teach classes in Yoga Republic as well as give individual, in-company and classes for children. I’m also a certified Yoga Alliance teacher (RYT 200).
Through movement I help my clients reach physical and emotional well- being, handle stress, raise energy levels and build self- confidence in their private and public lives. I systematically broaden my knowledge and improve skills during various workshops. In my private life I’m a mom of two with an artistic education and I work as an art restorer. I’m happy to say that my work is my passion, but not the only one- in my free time I do acroyoga, climb, take pictures, dance and cook. I’m interested in conscoius movement and combining and applying various bodywork techniques.
