Dagmara

Peace and clarity is not the reason Dagmara started her yoga practice, but it is the reason she keeps coming back to her yoga mat.  Yoga is incredible at getting us in touch with our internal source of peace and well-being, and connecting us to our true center – which is love and pure joy. Those are the aspects that Dagmara loves sharing in her classes most.   Dagmara’s classes also put emphasis on exploring your breath and pushing an envelope of your physical abilities in a fun and playful way. After class you  will walk away with an energized body,  clear mind and rejuvenated spirit.
