Gergana Dimitrova about herself:
My encounter with yoga was in my early childhood years when I suffered from asthma and multiple allergies. My doctor at the time, Dr. Gizova, referred my mother to ice skating, swimming, and to an older man who I later realized was a yoga teacher. Medicine proved powerless in the face of my many allergies and asthma attacks and thanks to the wonderful doctor I had and the yoga teacher she referred me to my life took off in the right direction for me. This elderly, dry and wiry man, whose name I unfortunately don’t remember because I was only 5 years old, came home several times and showed me how to get up at 5:00 am every morning and do what is called in yoga “Cleansing Practices”. I did them regularly, for years, and gradually they became part of my life. Ice skating and swimming for health gradually turned into athletic training and my desire to develop as a professional athlete. Life took a turn and various experiences and mishaps led me to seek a different path and reconnect with spiritual practices and experiences. I tried different classes and in 2009 I met my yoga teacher in Bulgaria, Svetlana Blagoeva, to whom I am extremely grateful for everything she has taught me. Together with her in 2010 I took a trip to India where I discovered a lot of new knowledge and skills. I continue to learn every day and am interested to discover that each person is like a universe. For me, yoga is a philosophy, a way of life, a path to self, a care for the body and soul, an attitude towards the world and everything that surrounds us. I believe that when the student is ready, then he meets his teacher. I am grateful to all my teachers who have helped me and continue to give me of their light!
In classes starting this year, in addition to yoga practices, I plan to incorporate healing gymnastics and other beneficial exercises that I have personally experienced over the years and have felt their efficacy. I believe that in our hectic daily lives we need different practices to help our physical and mental health and to feel better and be more ourselves!
I look forward to meeting you and to walking together on the path to self-improvement!
