Liza Markova
Yoga Instructor

Since early years I’ve been interested in philosophy and cultures of Asian countries, especially India. I admired their belief that a person exists on many different levels – physical, intellectual, energetic etc. That’s why I started to explore those healing systems that would have a holistic approach and worked on the whole personality, rather than just parts of physical body, like in fitness or sports. I fell in love with yoga for its ancient wisdom and spirituality. In 2005 I was lucky to meet my first spiritual teacher, who shared this precious knowledge with me and gave me very good basics for further personal practice. Thus my yoga practice started not with visiting of group classes in studios, but with exploration of my body and mind through a personal practice, studying yoga literature and getting inspiration from my teachers.

Practising regularly, I started to feel positive influence of yoga on all aspects of my life: my immune system has strengthened (I rarely get ill even with common cold), my mind became more focused and overall level of happiness and satisfaction increased. 

For the past 11 years I’ve taken numerous courses in hatha yoga, breathing techniques, meditation and other relaxation techniques in international yoga centres in India, Germany, France and Poland. I have five years of teaching experience and certifications of the European Yoga Alliance (2010), The Art of Living Foundation (2010) and the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre (2012).   

I am very passionate about yoga and healthy lifestyle and I love sharing this precious knowledge with other people. I lead mostly relaxing classes with emphasis on holistic approach and individual needs of my students. Apart from hatha yoga classes I lead deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and guided meditations.

I’m currently studying Musculoskeletal Therapy in order to deepen my knowledge of yoga with profound understanding of human physiology and master advanced manual therapy techniques. I believe that combining manual therapy treatment and yoga, as a movement therapy, will allow me to help people on many different levels.
