She has a great deal of experience with working on balance, flexibility and strength. She is passionate about movement and the intention in and behind it.

Illona has been teaching yoga for over 6 years, she teaches her own blend of Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga as well as Restorative Yoga such as Yin yoga.  She additionally has qualifications in Positive Psychology and Integrative Nutrition allowing a fuller spectrum of tools toward self-empowerment in all scopes of life. Since 2017 she creates spaces, mainly through yoga retreats, where people are invited to connect deeper and deeper to themselves and their body. Creating space to feel, see and acknowledge what is.

Arianna is passionate about personal development and oriental philosophies, especially Buddhism. Four years ago she added Yoga as part of her daily routine, and 2 years ago she became a teacher of Yoga following the Vinyasa Karma Method.  “The real breakthrough happened when I discovered the teachings of Traditional Hatha Tantra Yoga, and I am now committed to spread the teachings of the Sri Vidya lineage and Himalayan masters mainly through private classes and personalized sadhana programs.”
