Mirja is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher (Junior Intermediate 2). Yoga found Mirja on her first trip to India in 2002 and she began teaching in 2011.
Mirja teaches classes around London and internationally. Her approach to teaching is truthful, creative & intelligent. A dedicated daily practice of āsana, meditation and chanting and a deep trust in the power of the practices enable her to teach from the heart. Mirja teaches with precision and lightness, dedication and humour, encouraging students to explore āsana as a way to increase awareness and understanding, and to find more space and freedom in body & mind.
Mirja believes that to be a good teacher you need to continue your journey as a student, consistently working on your practice and understanding and learning from your teachers, your students and yourself. She continues to train with senior Iyengar Yoga teachers in the UK to attain a senior level qualification and regularly spends time in India, where she studies at the Iyengar Yoga Institute RIMYI in Pune and Omkarananda Patanjala Yoga Kendra in Rishikesh.
