Some serious matters
1. When and how did you start practicing yoga
My first experience with yoga was when I was 16 years old and found an old yoga book in my parents library, which triggered my curiosity and made me start practicing yoga. Since then I got on and off the mat for about a decade and finally established a regular practice in London, where I lived for few years.
2. Preferred yoga style?
Traditional styles of yoga (Hatha, Shiva Shakti, Kundalini, Vinyasa).
3. Tip for practitioners
Yoga is truly for EVERYBODY… just remember that EVERY BODY is different. And that your breath and mind are powerful tools!.

Some interesting matters
