Kalina - our trips tour leader
Kalina Jankowska, an Australian trained yoga teacher, will be the tour leader for our South India trip in October 2011. She planned the itinerary herself – these are Kalina’s favorites of South India. All the arrangements in India are done by a travel agency that Kalina has been collaborating since 2005.
Since 2002 Kalina spent in India several years traveling extensively, practicing yoga in different ashrams, and working for the Chandra School of Art in Udupi, Karnataka. She is a qualified yoga teacher and a tour leader with a European license. She holds a Master’s of Visual Arts degree from Sydney College of the Arts and a Master’s of Science in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
Kalina has been practicing hatha yoga for over 15 years, and teaching it for over 7 years, internationally. She received a yoga teaching diploma in 2004 at Samadhi Yoga Studio, in Sydney, Australia (Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 – 200 hours, Yoga Alliance Accredited). Yoga that Kalina teaches is in the tradition of Yoga Vinyasa and Integral Yoga. Each practice includes warm up exercises followed by classical yoga positions (asana) coordinated with breath. Every practice includes breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation, meditation and occasional mantra chanting.
Kalina speaks English, Russian, Spanish and Polish.
