1. Why yoga?
Through the practice of yoga, I reconnect with myself. I find that this helps me to be more relaxed, centered, grounded and energized. It helps me to move through patterns and ideas so I can listen more clearly to my intuition – and this helps me to make the choices that are perfect for me in every moment.
2. How do you come back to inner peace?
I need to fill my cup back up regularly. I do this in all kinds of different ways: by spending time on my own, by massaging my body (or getting a massage), by practicing yoga, by going out in nature or by connecting with friends. At least once a year, I go on a retreat to check in with myself and to rest, restore and rejuvenate. Doing this at a beautiful place, such as Kumara, really helps to find and nourish my inner peace.
3. Top wellness tips?
Take time to connect to your body at least once a day. The simplest way to do this is by paying attention to your breath. Just follow every inhalation and exhalation for a minute (or longer!) and notice what that does to your body and mind.
Irina will be leading the Self-care & Self-love retreat – Exclusively for Women on 7-13 July 2019.
When Irina stepped on the mat for the very first time many years ago, she knew she had found her path. She fell in love with the practice and it quickly became her way of life. That was when she also realised that she wanted to share this love for yoga with others.
She traveled the world to study with amazing teachers and completed several in-depth teacher trainings in hatha, vinyasa, Anusara, restorative and yin yoga. Read more about Irina Verwer
