Slavica Popov Meinhold graduated from the YogaLife Institute's 200-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Program in March 2013. My first encounter with yoga happened in 1998. It was a love at first sight, which has developed over the years into a deep relationship, with many benefits for my entire being. Yoga gave me the tools that have been helping me the through the life: from simply being in shape, maintain positive attitude to becoming more connected to myself. I enjoy practicing asanas and expressing myself through the movement of my body. But the study of yoga offered me also the paths towards my inner strength and flexibility, peace and acceptance. Recently I started sharing this exciting experience of journey into yoga teaching on Sunday morning at Ocean Spirit Yoga in Portsmouth, NH. These classes are designed with the idea of the first baby steps into yoga practice: simple, open and accessible.
