Q: How did yoga enter your Life?
A: It was New Year's Day and I was watching some photos of yoga poses from a girl on Facebook. She was the same body type as me and she was doing a head stand. It looked so cool. At that moment, I thought to myself: "Why don't you try it too?" I wrote a message to this woman, she gave me some tips on how to begin, and I did. My body was responding really quickly and I managed to do the Crow Pose (Bakasana) in 3 days. It was very encouraging and motivating for myself. Later I found a yoga community on Instagram and my yoga journey began.
Q: What do you like the most about Instagram yoga challenges?
A: The mood! So many yoginis from all over the World, so many nice words, the atmosphere is perfect even if the yoga poses are not. That is what I really love.
Q: What is your favorite yoga asana?
A: King pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)
Q: What is your favorite book and why?
A: Harry Potter! I love fantasy stories. I love the world that J.K. Rowling has created: her writing style is amazing, the characters are incredible - as soon as you open the book you become a part of the story. This is exactly why I like reading - I like being a part of story I read.

Q: What would your best friends tell us about you?
A: She's always there for you, helps when you need it. Sometimes moody, but her friendship is here forever!
Q: How does your weekend look like?
A: I'm on maternity leave, so my weekends are busier than week days because my husband and daughter are here too. I cook, work in the garden, we all go for a trip. It is not that easy to find time for my yoga practice during the weekends because I dedicate them to my family.
Q: What would be your advice to a yoga beginner?
Don't look for a perfect yoga pose, enjoy the journey.
