About us

It is a great privilege to live and work as Yoga and Meditation teacher and therapist in the Costa Vicentina Natural Park by the Ocean in Portugal. I help people who stay here (retreats & private disciples) with loosing their limitations located in the body and mind. My work is focused on: 1. PURIFICATION OF THE MIND (from laziness, fears, stress, depression, addictions, insomnia, etc.), 2. PURIFICATION OF THE PHYSICAL BODY (from back pains, headache, obesity, pain in the joints, etc.).

Feel very welcome to join the next RETREAT with me: starting on 30th of September 2017 (8 days, 510€) in the Natural Park at the Ocean in Sintra, Portugal (check my page, please).

I was born in 1987 in Poland and discovered Yoga and Meditation as a teenager at Jagucki’s Studio in Szczecin. My first big inspiration in life came from the ancient Tibetan Buddhist meditation teachings, and my true love of the practice came when I entered Jivamukti Yoga Studio in 2013 in Berlin. It is funny to say, but I became a "professional Yoga & Meditation teacher" after accomplishing my yogic studies in India at Paramanand Institute by Dr Omanand. I am familiar with various different Yoga styles (Ashtanga, Hatha, Kundalini, Yin, Iyengar, etc.), however, in my eyes “Yoga is one”. Therefore my chosen practice is based on the traditional Patanjali Yoga Sutras where Yoga means:
Yama - respect for others;
Niyama - respect for yourself;
Asana - harmony with your body (postures that we practice in Yoga class that will basically allow you to sit or stand straight, from where you can go forward with the practice of...);
Pranayama - harmony with your energy (breathing);
Pratyahara - harmony with your emotions (peaceful mind);
Dharana - harmony with your thoughts (for example: concentration on 1 point);
Dhyana - meditation, contemplation;
Samadhi - ecstasy that is seen as glimpse of enlightenment. Total insight.
+ Cleansing techniques.

Namaste, Amigos!

      Positive and empowering

    Weronika is an incredibly positive and empowering teacher. I spent 5 days learning from her in Aljezur, Portugal and it was such an enriching experience. She's a kind soul and I highly recommend any class or retreat with her. Athena

      My amazing experience with Weronika in Portugal

    Before I had met Weronika, I had never tried yoga before, I couldn't touch my toes, couldn't keep my legs straight and was really nervous about trying this new experience. Weronika was not only helpful, but she was kind, funny and patient. After only a few weeks of practicing with her I felt my body change, it would now do things for me that I would never dream of asking it to do before. But that is not really the point, the point is is that she made me feel welcome, my nerves went, I felt more relaxed and open, and most of all I made a friend. Highly recommend spending some time with Weronika, be it yoga classes, meditation or retreats.
