I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.

testimonials

  • I have been practicing yoga with Irena for app. 8 years now. I go a lot through high and lows in my yoga practice, due to many injuries, for e.g. from skiing accidents etc. Sometimes my stressful job and not always so peaceful surroundings, set me back in my practice as well. However, Irena has helped me a lot through her guidance, serious approach and advices. She is a very brave women with strong character, although you wont tell that immediately from her gracile appearance.

  • “I started practicing yoga with Irena at age of 14, as a teenager of buzzing mind (still am), who needed something to steer her energy into. By guidance of most beautiful and kind teacher, my practice became something much more than just gymnastics – it became a source of happiness, relaxation, security and energy. “
