I started yoga with meditation. I completed Yoga Alliance RYS-200 Trainer Education in 2011 which is my first education. After 1 year as an instructor, I completed the follow-up education, Yoga Alliance RYS-500 and presented a dissertation which compares Anatolian Sufism with Far East Mysticism. Since then, I continue as an instructor by attending to workshops from time to time. At the same time as a sociologist, I enjoy observing my students meeting spiritualism and I feel my progression every day.
Life is a flow, and the closest ones to the spring, are the newest ones to flow.
Children are very open to learning with their clean and pure energy, even their memories that belong to spring are fresh and reachable.
Children Yoga, from the very beginning of journey, before disrupting with life’s chaos, reminds children to stay steady, balanced and close to the spring. Everything we try to learn/remember, brings into flowers in children, even from the beginning of life.
