Małgo Witter
Warsaw, Poland

A musician, surfer, and yogi. Malgo roams the world chasing after change, and so far hasn’t been able to stay longer in one place. She’s always balancing the big city with her love for nature. Both bring something fresh into her life. In the past – connected to the fashion industry. Today – with very few belongings and practicing non-attachment.
When not on the go, Malgo facilitates regular classes in Warsaw, teaching Prana Flow Yoga and Thai Massage workshops. She absorbs herself in connecting with other people, sharing time together. She likes to begin each day early, to allow time for all her rituals. Thanks to Ayurveda, she’s learned a few tricks – gentle yoga in bed, massaging a cold-pressed oil into the skin to soothe the nervous system, and a huge healthy breakfast.
She loves her life, with its ups and downs. She says that she always does her best to embrace every day, with the gratitude for the ability to wake up and welcome each sunset. Such a blessing! Since she’s an artist, in her spare time Malgo grabs a guitar or sits by the piano, to sing and compose. That’s her favourite pass-time, connecting through music, and a way to rejuvenate the body and mind. Ever since her first time on the board, she feel in love with surfing. She says that the feeling when the wave carries you is indescribable, and brings a complete surrender. The same principles apply to her beloved Prana Flow practice – the rolling out of the mat, listening to the heart, the breath, the movement, everything that manifests, everything that time after time allows to come back to yourself, no matter what.

Marc Laws II
London, UK

Interview on our blog

Born in England to a Canadian mother and an American father, Marc has African, Native American and Ukrainian roots, and thinks of himself as a citizen of the world. Having grown up in New Mexico playing football, his dream was to get on the turf in England, which he fulfilled after moving back to the UK in his early 20s.
As an athlete, Marc was always looking for ways to tap in to the higher potential of the body and mind. This same curiosity led him to education in sports therapy, massage, personal training, psychology, and human behavior. Then along came yoga… He still remembers the exact class, day, and who it was with. That moment shifted his direction toward the full-on yoga life! Marc was struck by the flow of the asana practice; that it demanded strength, flexibility, awareness and balance all as one. For Marc, yoga had it all for: the philosophy, an approach to life, and the awareness of the mind and self. He remains grateful to Ian Dodge, Sally Griffyn, Amy Rose and his teacher Meghan Currie for introducing him into this community.
To Marc, yoga is the manuscript to the human body, his biggest challenge was not pushing himself too fast and too hard. His personal mantra to live by: Never look down on a person unless you’re helping them up.

Marta Witecka
Berlin, Germany

Marta spends most of her days upside down, teaching AcroYoga and sharing the magic of handstanding. Her spare time, if it ever happens, is filled with a variety of art and sport projects, including acrobatics. Believe it or not, but handstanding is not only one of her favourite pastimes, but also a way to relax and release. Marta’s way to quiet down the mind? Meditation. And more handstands.
Marta’s dedicated training routine serves as a grounding force and so she never skips it. Her life rotates around her work and practice, everything else falls in place accordingly. Family life serves as a true anchor.
Marta is grateful for the ability to travel the world, facilitating her workshops in Poland and beyond. She thrives in the city environment, which fills her with energy, but when the time is right, she seeks peace in nature, recently having been in love with the mountains.
When it comes to fashion, her only questions are: how and where was this item produced, and, can I do a handstand in it? She eats mindfully, choosing organic, and steering away from the processed foods. Her conscious lifestyle means taking care of her body through the right diet, being active, sleeping well, and spending a lot of time outdoors.
Marta takes each day as it comes, without running in her thoughts to the future. She never expected to be exactly where she is today, which fills her with even more gratitude for her path and the way of living. To her, the world would have been a better place, if we first all learnt how to be kind towards ourselves. Only then we would have the strength and wisdom to treat others that very same way.

Chloe Rose
Lake District, UK

Chloe began yoga in 2007 & completed her first teaching training in 2014. Studying with Sharon Gannon, Yogeswari & Jules Febre, Chloe most recently attained 300 hour Jivamukti certification in India 2017. She has primarily practiced Jivamukti Yoga as a student of Emma Divya Henry- to whom she is very grateful.

A founder member & graduate of A.C. Grayling’s New College of the Humanities in Philosophy & English Literature, Chloe now pursues postgraduate study there too. Sharing time between Bloomsbury & the Lake District to teach & study, Chloe’s ardent heart relishes work with ‘the wild child of yoga’ & enfant terrible of academia.

As a friend to Plato with an appetite for yoga, Chloe strives for Truth- Beauty- Goodness as well as Satchidānanda- Truth- Consciousness- Bliss in all that she does.

Marta Wanderlust
Goa, India

Marta is a certified Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher, with an inspiring story of transformation from chaos to peace, from darkness to light. Having gone off the beaten track in her early 20s, Marta’s journey of self-discovery started in sobriety. One of her most life-changing experiences took place on the mat at Jivamukti Yoga centre in London, whose teachers remain her strongest influence. Living in India for most of the year, Marta spends her time practising, teaching yoga, self-inquiring, and – beyond all – spreading the message of love and compassion for all beings.
Other times, Marta can be found travelling the world with her mat, creating memories, eating coconuts and embracing her never-satisfied case of a wanderlust. She has learned in recovery to love life and see it day at a time, and to never take yourself too seriously.

Luis Valentine
London, UK

Luis is a certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher, having trained in New York with Sharon Gannon, David Life and Petros Haffenrichter and is also a classically trained actor and singer. It was whilst at drama school that Luis first found yoga practice, as a way to support his movement and dance training. He discovered the Jivamukti method through a friend and has focused on this method ever since. Luis felt like he had discovered a wonderful secret; he felt so aligned with the practice, everything about it resonated deeply with him and he felt a strong sense of coming home.

The yoga practices have supported Luis on so many levels that he feels a strong sense of responsibility to share and it was this, which initially inspired and continues to inspire him to teach.

Luis hopes that students go beyond…and take something from the practice off of the mat and out with them into the world.

With a focus on breath and alignment, classes include creative flowing sequences, sanskrit chanting and hands- on assists, all set to an eclectic soundtrack and always ending with deep relaxation.

Luis teaches private clients 121, at various events, retreats and festivals and at many major yoga studios across London including:

The Life Centre, Islington
The Garuda Studio, St. John’s Wood
Yogahaven, Clapham
Yogahome, Stoke Newington
Mudra, Stoke Newington
Yogarise, Peckham

Pip and Eugene
AcroYogaDance - Brighton, UK

Pip Elysium and Eugene Butcher are AcroYogaDance, a duet existing to bring beauty and lightness to the global dance, yoga and acrobatic communities. They perform and teach globally, spreading joy and sharing their passion for movement, health and wellbeing. With the background in ballet (Pip) and martial arts (Eugene), AcroYogaDance brings harmony and lightness to their workshops. They have the ability to simplify even the most complex of transitions. After many years dedicated to different forms of movement, they have found themselves falling in love with acro yoga, and it organically became their lifestyle. They enjoy the games, the laughter, fun, partner drills and the community-feel of this method. Being able to practice it outdoors makes it even better. Yoga practice often comes to them while travelling – on trains, tubes, buses, planes. What started as a challenge and exploration at first, soon became part of every day routine.

Eugene says that he remains unaffected by other passengers who might be watching and what they may be thinking. He finds it liberating to be able to adapt his practise to the surroundings and explore gravity differently.

Ever keen to experiment, Pip and Eugene have no seats or furniture in their flat, a deliberate choice that allowing them to sit and rest in various poses. However, the favourite resting place being their bath – preferably filled with hot water and Epsom salt, and surrounded by soya candles.

Pip and Eugene are passionate about health and wellbeing, both following a stimulant-free vegan diet, consciously choosing products which aren’t harmful to the environment or use up natural resources, supporting the fair trade, sustainable production, the environment, and animal welfare.

Agnieszka Marish
Los Angeles, USA

Warsaw born and bred, Agnieszka Marish begins and ends each day with a prayer and meditation practice. It’s her personal way of connecting, and dipping into the source of balance and calmness in the business of every day life. A passionate Yoga Teacher, who has recently relocated to California, she stays active most of her days. Rolling out the yoga mat is a ritual of its own, but Agnieszka also loves to swim, run, and get on a bike. In love with the Californian sunsets, she keeps Warsaw and Polish mountains close to her heart.
The relationship with nature, and ability to touch and embrace it makes her the happiest. The time taken out just for herself is often enriched by simple breathing techniques – her way of ensuring conscious sailing through life.
Agnieszka believes that each day is special and beautiful, each brings us something unique. She makes an effort to begin it mindfully with her favourite rituals – her personal practice, a cup of coffee, good vegetarian breakfast. Only then she begins to take on the day ahead.
Her true breakthrough moment on the journey of self-discovery was her time spent in India, and the 10 weeks of intensive practice. The experience showed her how much we can change through dedicated commitment. It was a time of deep and calm transformation, true journey towards the Self.

Dominika Kojro
Warsaw, Poland

Dominika Kojro is an actress who, seeking the balance and quietness in life, began her journey on the mat in 2010, with Iyengar Yoga. Having previously certified as a pilates trainer, she very quickly fell in love with Ashtanga, which took her at the feet of world’s most respected teachers of the method, including Manju Jois, Lino Miele, and Kino MacGregor.

Dominika continues to act and dives into her creative projects with passion, but Yoga itself – which was only meant to serve as support system in the busy lifestyle – became a whole new way of living.

Yoga is freedom, she says. And that freedom-seeking has recently taken Dominika into surfing. “Surfing gives yogis an external experience of yoga. And yoga gives surfers a leg up when they’re on the board ” – a quote she came across feels like the perfect summary of her experiences. Inspired by the freedom found in the waters, she began to teach Yoga for Surfers, and actively collaborates with a surfing camp in Portugal.

She feels the need to travel and does it often, finding bliss in the beloved wilderness of Asia. Staying close to nature connects her back to that sweet balance of life, and the beautiful Polish region of Warmia, where she comes from, serves as her favourite escape. Even a day in the presence of trees and lakes can recharge her batteries and create more space. More space means more freedom.

You can practice with Dominika in Warsaw at the Asanga Yoga Studio and Joga Studio Saska Kepa. Catch her before she wanders off again, she’s already packing the bags!
