Lead Teacher - 200hr course for March 2019
Abby is nomadic, living somewhere between her yoga mat and her journal. Some years ago she packed up her life in London, leaving behind a career in Human Rights, to follow a dream of exploring the world, teaching yoga and writing poetry. She teaches a self-adapted version of Hatha Yoga, inspired by Hridaya, Sivananda, Iyengar and Agama traditions. With a balance between movement and stillness she guides her students through a sequence activating each chakra in turn. This allows for deeper exploration of these subtle energy wheels and encourages purification and healing to occur on many levels. With a focus on bringing kundalini energy to rest in the heart each practice finishes at Anahata (the heart) chakra.

Lead Teacher - 200hr course for May 2019
Mariana discovered the practice of yoga in 2012 thanks to a very gifted, knowledgeable and generous yoga teacher. And so she began to experience and trust the transformative power of yoga. Ever since, many changes in her life happened including a yoga teacher training in Sivananda Yoga in 2014, quitting a corporate carrier and the decision to dedicate her time to teaching and practicing yoga.
Her activity now includes teaching in several yoga studios in Bucharest and managing a personal yoga platform (together with a friend and yoga enthusiast) that makes this practice friendly, accessible and down to earth for her urban citizen humans in Bucharest. Mariana has and continues to develop her yoga knowledge through trainings, workshops and studies in Europe, India and Bucharest where she resides.
She organizes and/or participates in yoga events, retreats, festivals and has been a yoga teacher trainer for a yoga school in Romania. Most of all she is happy to be part of the dynamic growing yoga community in Bucharest now. She teaches in Romanian and English traditional Hatha yoga classes, Sivananda yoga, hot yoga vinyasa classes, yin yoga.
Founder & Coordinator of Akasha yoga teacher training course
Irina lived in London for over 15 years and ran an international travel startup when she discovered the true benefits of yoga, over 8 years ago, and with it a passion for health & personal development. Irina qualified as a yoga teacher in Goa, India and holds E-RYT 200hr certificate by Yoga Alliance for Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga with subsequent courses in Yin Yoga and anatomy, alignment and the art of yoga sequencing. Her style of teaching is very much geared towards healing the whole body emotional, physical and mental balancing aspects of meditation, breathing techniques and incorporating motivational stories to leave each student with a feeling of being at peace and centred. She does not advocate for Yoga as a workout and considers each class an opportunity to uncover more spiritual aspects within ourselves, as well as personalizing the experience for her students whenever possible. She believes that we are not humans having a spiritual experience but spiritual beings having a human experience with all the trials and tribulations that come in life. Hence the class does not often end with savasana but a guide map for how to introduce yoga off the mat and into daily life.
From the beaches of Goa, participating in retreats & traditional ashrams, studying Ayurveda, practicing meditation with Buddhist monks in Tibet, hiking the Himalayas & integrating Bhakti Yoga, her journey motivated her to apply her yoga practice as an integrated part of a healthy lifestyle and to create the retreat experience for Akasha in Transylvania and the Akasha Escapes.

“Exactly what I needed,
"Had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Akasha earlier this year. It really is a special and beautiful place. Going in Autumn all the leaves were turning and the hills were bathed in a warm golden light. After couple of days of yoga, relaxation, good sleep, country walks and delicious food I felt both peaceful and full of beans like never before. It was wonderful meeting Daniela and hearing all about the vision behind Akasha and how her dream has become a reality. Everyone was so accommodating and really went out of their way to make it a super special stay for all of us. I will definitely be back soon.” Jo, Oct 2018
“An unexpected surprise... lush, luxurious and lazy day living,
The oasis that is Akasha is a gem... among the rolling hills of Romania is a beautiful surprise of a retreat center that offers hot tubs on cool nights, sunrise yoga and mid-day hikes. It’s a dream!!!” Saniyka, Nov 2018
