About The Teacher
Simona Trandafir has been a spiritual teacher since 1985. During this time, she has inspired and coordinated large groups of yogis. She is an experienced yoga teacher, as acknowledged by Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500).
Even though she is a graduate of the Automation and Computer University, she felt that her entire life should be dedicated to opening people’s hearts towards the inherent beauty of existence. This is what she was called to do since she was 12, and she now continues her mission.
Hundreds of people from Bucharest, Constanta, Brasov, and other places in Romania started practicing yoga with Simona.
In 1995, she founded the Kamala Meditation and Yoga Centre in Brasov with Liviu Gheorghe and established a medical clinic based on natural and yoga methods in the Ceahlau Mountains. Simona, Liviu Gheorghe, Sebastian Teodor, Veronica Cernat, and Sahajananda are co-founders of the Kamala Yoga and Meditation Centre (established in 2007). In 1999, together with some colleagues, Simona founded a yoga school in London.
Being together with Sahajananda in life, and on the spiritual path, since 1976, Simona participated in the roots and flowering of Hridaya Yoga from the very beginning. In the 1990s, Simona, Sahajananda, and some other friends spread the teachings of yoga to large groups of people in Romania for the first time.
Simona also has a rich and fruitful activity of disseminating spiritual teachings by means of books, articles, and magazines she has written, edited, and/or translated. These include Mysteries Magazine, Yoga Magazine, and Kamala Centre’s magazine Elixirium. In this way, she transmitted and echoed the spiritual tremor expressed by Ramakrishna, Rumi, Shankara, Ramana Maharishi, and other sages.
In 1984, she started meditation practice in the tantric realm of the Dasha Maha Vidya, the Ten Great Cosmic Wisdoms. This practice resulted in profound revelations and understandings, which she now shares with others through workshops and initiations in Romania and other countries in Europe.
Simona’s activity at the Kamala Meditation and Yoga Centre, the Hridaya Yoga classes she gives in Brasov and in Bucharest, her contribution to the Kamala Publishing House, and the workshops and lectures she offers in Romania and abroad, are valuable proof of the continuity of her spiritual dharma.
Simona invites you to contemplate the sacredness of life by feeling the beauty of the Heart.
