My name is Iva and I am an art historian, arts & mindfulness educator & a yoga teacher, a traveler, a creative, a writer who is inspired by arts, yoga, movement, nature, philosophy, writing about visual arts and different cultures, the smell of a new place I visit. 

I studied history, culture and art theory in Bulgaria, Italy, Denmark and the Netherlands and worked on different projects in the field of visual arts and education, mostly in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where I lived for the last seven years. My latest study at Leiden University (NL) focused on theory and philosophy of contemporary visual arts, which is also my current academic research.


More than seven years ago I discovered the power of yoga, which allowed me to explore new paths towards inner peace. It led to a journey in Guatemala, and consequently to completing YTT in the Sacred Valley in Peru and to my current mission as a yoga teacher. Naturally for me both creativity and yoga came together into an offering that aims to help you unlock your creative energy through yoga (meditation, asana practice, pranayama) in order to create the space for you to connect to your true self and live your true purpose. 

My interests and offers are in the field of contemporary visual arts & culture, yoga, philosophy & mindfulness. My mission as a yoga teacher is to hold space for inner transformation through embodiment practices & theory.
