In Conversation with Slavomir Latko

Slavomir Latko. His own childhood health challenges along with truly awe-inspiring mystical experiences starting in early teenage years have fuelled his explorations of the deeper nature of healing. Being able to travel and study ancient healing traditions at their roots also led him to understand the importance of the facilitator’s own transformation.

In Conversation with Rebecca Tieken

Rebecca Tieken, for the last decade, works as an independent midwife (not employed by any hospital trust or company therefore she’s able to give unbiased information), pregnancy, postnatal yoga teacher and mum.
Her yoga journey started when practicing to strengthen her back muscles to alleviate her scoliosis (she has a slight deviation in her spine). She also found it useful to stretch out her tired muscles after long-haul flights during the time she used to work as a cabin crew for a major airline.
Yoga became her way to keep fit and focused. 
She wants pregnant women to keep feeling healthy, strong, and graceful as being pregnant is not a medical condition – just another variation of normal.
After leaving the airline, she retrained as a midwife and five years ago underwent the pregnancy/postnatal yoga teacher training and started teaching since then.

Here and now. Aqui e agora.

“Feel your body. The air entering your nostrils.

The weight of your body on the ground.

The feel of your clothes on your skin.

Relax in this present moment.”

O peso do seu corpo no chão.

Sinta a sua roupa ‘tocando’ a sua pele. Relaxe neste momento.”
