About the group
Pop up Yoga Sofia is for open minded people who live in the city and would like to practice yoga and mindfulness in a friendly environment. It is about being mindful and finding beauty and peace in every moment, with everything around us, wherever we are.
Classes and events are held on an irregular basis (hence under the pop up name) throughout the year in different and interesting locations. All updates regarding relevant events will be posted in this group.
Pop up Yoga Sofia is part of the Berlin based group - CityZen Yoga Berlin. You can find more details here: www.meetup.com/cityzenberlin.
About Zen Yoga
Zen or mindfulness is a non-judgmental observation of the present moment. Zen yoga is the practice of moving with mindfulness.
Through a gentle flow, we explore the inner space and get rid of stress and tension in our bodies and in our minds. We practice care, compassion and appreciation for ourselves and for all beings. Each class ends with a deep relaxation and / or guided meditation. After that you will feel more relaxed and more connected to yourself and your environment. A regular practice brings zen from the mat into your daily life.
Classes are taught in English.
About the teacher
Elena is a Bulgarian based in Berlin. Her first experience with yoga was with Alexey Skvortsov (www.dar-center.com) when she was 14 years old. In 2015, she completed a 200 hrs Zen Yoga Certification with the Dynamic Mindfulness School in Berlin (www.dynamicmindfulness.de). Since then, she has been teaching in Berlin and while travelling through different cities in Portugal, Spain, Poland and the US.
To be yogis doesn’t mean we have to be able to speak with trees, nor that we have to be flexible or even 'spiritual`. The practice of yoga and mindfulness is accessible everywhere and for everyone. In fact, it is unique for every person. There is no expectations of who you are and what yoga means for you. Come to the mat as you are and create your own experience.
