about me

Who am I?

  

My name is Zsuzsa. Zsuzsa Kohan. I do not like to call myself a teacher. I am a yoga practitioner who would like to share her journey.

Practicing yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation) and following the principles of ayurveda is like  medicine  which keeps me away from migraine, cold/flu, all sorts of infections, anxiety, mood swings. I do it because I love to do it. I do it because my being asks me to do it. I do it just as I breathe – I do not question do I need to take my next breath or not, just breathing in and out.

Yes, I have to admit, I am that annoying one who wakes up before everyone else in the morning to practice. The one whose main priority is searching for yoga places even while on holiday or on the other side of the globe. I am the one who is chanting on the bus at 6:00am on her way to teach, who is breathing with ujjayi standing in a queue in a bank.

Yoga is not a hobby any more. Not only a way to earn a living. Yoga is my lifestyle. It is the way I’m looking after myself being able to look after others.
