A 10 day Vipassana Retreat in Lumbini, birth place of Buddha in Nepal - March 2017  It was the most challenging experience I have ever had in my entire life. Waking up at 4am every day, sitting for 10 meditation sessions per day, each lasts for 1 hour to 75 minutes. No talking, Noble silence. Yoga is not allowed either. Having 2 meals per day. Reading & writing are forbidden. Men and women are segregated. No access to your notebook, phone or laptop. You are only allowed to meditate, shower, eat and sleep on certain hours. BUT you find the golden key to open the door to the unconscious part of your brain only under such an intense circumstance and miracle happens...   We all carry heavy unnecessary baggages that we do not even notice in our daily life because we are so busy. Day after day, after an intense meditation retreat like this, you gradually release them and you feel lighter and lighter every day that you can actually feel like flying... running away from a place like this or not finishing the course is a sign of running away from your weaknesses and flaws that one should be brave enough to face them at some point in life.  This experience affected me so much that made me write an article on my experience  http://www.canadianyogi.com/a-mental-shower.html

Without a doubt, one of the best teachers I have ever encountered. Her instruction is so pricise that enables you get inside of your body and find new muscles and feel them deeply. Did an intensive training with her at downward dog yoga centre in Toronto http://downwarddog.com/  and would love to study with her more. Thanks to my amazing teachers, Ron Reid and Marla Joy who invited and hosted her. Highly recommend her trainings espcially to teachers http://matyezraty.com/

Ron Reid is one of the best teachers in the world… He is full of knowledge at the same time he is very humble. I highly recommend him to all practitioners and teachers around the globe to experience his style of teaching especially his mysore classes and adjustments.

I had a great chance to take a workshop with Chuck Miller at Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto in December 2017. I found him a very sensitive, deep, open minded philosopher who practices Ashtanga, Iyengar and Vipassana without being dogmatic about any of these practices. He insisted that we should stop DOING yoga and we should use yoga as a tool to purification and liberation. So much truth in that...
