Ludzie Żywej Ziemi: Renata

I have known Kasia and Karl for many years. Our relationship with Kasia dates back to my school years since her son is one of my closest friends. I started coming to Zakrzewo in high school, that is where I completed my thesis for Bachelor’s Degree. Having graduated from university, I started travelling and working abroad. I have worked in Switzerland, China, Syria, Ireland, Indonesia, Inner Mongolia and Myanmar.
Apart from being an English teacher, I also give yoga classes. I had become interested in the subject in Indonesia for the first time, continued my practice in Poland and Myanmar, to finally formalize it in in Dharamsala, a Tibetan haven, where I settled for 1.5 months. There, I became a certified RYT 200 teacher, having finished a teaching course registered in Yoga Alliance. In September 2018 I took up a teaching course in Healthy Spine, organized by Open Mind School and less than a year later I became certified in Yoga Wheel. These are not the only certifications I have obtained throughout my career as I try to gain knowledge all the time, whenever I have a chance and possibility to do so. This is the most valuable aspect of the career I chose a long time ago.
For the past 5 years, together with my husband, Michał, I have been giving power yoga, aerial yoga, stretch & relaxation and healthy spine classes as Black & White Yoga. We have also organized workshops, teaching courses and attended numerous events related to yoga, healthy living and mindfulness. We have two wonderful children, Lucy and Oliver. Since I am a mother of a rather lively two-year-old, my biggest hobby is sleeping and sleeping some more. I also enjoy watching a film or an episode of a favorite series in the evening.
