"Zohar is adapting the exercises to the learner's level, which is very appreciable both in the standard classes and the online group classes. She also takes time to give individual advices and correction tips to avoid any pain and help the progress. Recommended!
"Zohar is a wonderful yoga instructor! I love how she selects a meditation or technique to focus on throughout the practice! I find her classes well balanced with just the right amount of challenging postures & relaxation. I always feel great after taking her class! :)
"Zohar is one of the best yoga & flexibility coaches that I have met. Her classes are very inclusive and offer different variations of exercises to make sure it fits to your level. It is a perfect mix of challenging and relaxing practice and so you feel the benefits of it very quickly. Whether it is an online or in-person class, Zohar pays personal attention to each of the participants and offer very useful corrections throughout the session. On top of that, she is an incredible kind, patient and supportive teacher. Highly recommended! :)
"Zohar is honestly the best yoga teacher I know. She is so dynamic and fun but yet patient and gives you time to get your own pace :)
She encouraged me to be confident and follow my own rhythm, but she was also able to take me out of my comfort zone in the kindest and softest possible way! I will take every chance I can get to do yoga with her again!
Zohar started practicing Pranayama and Hatha Yoga at a young age, back in 2009, while she was studying technical product design in Mondragon. In 2011, during her exchange semester in Poland, she explored the Iyengar methodology. Through the Iyengar Yoga, she learnt the correct alignments of the asanas and how to use props during the practice.
Once in Switzerland, she focused on practicing Ashtanga based Power Yoga. And here is when her curiosity towards flexibility started. Being since kid a very creative person, she started seeing art in the flexibility - what it led her to explore Mongolian Contortion in the States back in 2018.
It was amazing to learn about the vast possibilities of the human body, if we only connect breathing with mind & body. And of course, if we use the right flexibility and mobility techniques for our bodies.
Philosophy & practice
The mind, the breath and the body are all one. Through yoga and flexibility practice, we try to connect the three of them to release the tension accumulated in our bodies.
Breathing soothes the mind, and the mind the muscles - hence allowing as also getting deeper in our mobility.
Yet, each person has a different anatomy, and there are no flexibility exercises that are always same for everyone. The technique is same, yes - but it usually needs to be readjusted to the practitioner.
Students are required to empty their minds through breathing, while they start entering on what the mind thinks are "uncomfortable positions". They aren't uncomfortable - but it feels so because our bodies are closed. They haven't met yet openness and hence, we need to train the mind to stay in open positions and relax.
Relax by breathing, letting it go any tension and being patient.
