I do have 8 years experience of practicing yoga and 3 years experience of teaching yoga to yoga students. Until now I was mostly teaching Yang yoga styles (more dynamical) - Vinyasa flow, hatha yoga, Ashtanga yoga. But I always wanted to have also deeper knowledge of Yin yoga and in January un March, 2016 here in New Zealand I did yoga teacher training with Markus Henning Giess - Yin Yoga & Anatomy. I really enjoyed this course and now I am also including Yin yoga in my yoga classes. Therefore  I am flexible with option how to lead my yoga classes -  it can be more dynamical or more softer and slower version, as well as I am used to work with different age groups.

Right now I am living in Arrowtown and working in Unwind Cafe & Bar as barista and FOH, therefore I do have hospitality and customer service experience also here in New Zealand. As well as I also have worked as a yoga studio manager in little healthy lifestyle based hostel in Riga, Latvia. There I got good experience working with many international yoga clients and working in more international hostel/hotel style environment.

As a yoga teacher I have experience teaching yoga in yoga studios and also I have planned and lead few yoga retreats in nature, outside the city walls.
I am a Latvian citizen and right now I participating in the WORKING HOLIDAYS VISA programme in New Zealand. Therefore I have legal rights to work in New Zealand.
