November with Yoga in Chochołowska Valley

Once again, I invite you to an autumn yoga retreat in the Chochołowska Valley (from 16th November to 18th November 2018). I’ve named it, “Don’t Let the Autumn Aura Get to Us – November in Chochołowska,” because I know how easy it is during this time to succumb to the grey weather, stay indoors, and brood until spring.

Come rain, shine or snow in the Tatras in November, we’ll strengthen, regenerate, and relax our bodies and minds. Yoga practice starts on Friday around 6:00 PM and continues on Saturday mornings and evenings while on Sunday, we’ll “welcome the sun” in the early hours. As usual, between our sessions, I will take anyone who is interested to explore the mountains. For those who are not fond of hiking (perhaps in the snow), I encourage you to bring a book, practice on your own, meditate, or simply do whatever takes your fancy.

Having recharged, fortified, and unwound, you’ll begin your journey back home on Sunday, around 2:00 PM. Our weekend sanctuary takes place in the “Forester’s Lodge,” where Bartek Klimecki at “Ziębówka” will treat us to nourishing vegetarian meals.

My name is Karolina Zięba, and as you can guess, I am your yoga instructor. I teach in a style focused on individualised and balanced practice. The most important thing for me is that everyone practices for themselves, at their own pace, in harmony with their body and mind.

With an 11-year yoga journey, I’ve honed my practice across diverse locations: from Poland and the Czech Republic to Nepal, India, and Iran. A pivotal chapter unfolded in Bali, where I fulfilled a cherished aspiration by completing the Svastha Yoga of Krischnamacharya Teacher Training Program (Yoga Alliance RYS 200) under Dr. Ganesha Mohana’s guidance.

I conduct classes in small groups, as I believe this yields maximum benefits. My background and passion lie in oriental studies, specialising in Iranian studies, all while my heart remains nestled within the Tatras’ embrace.

You’re welcome, come join us!
