Marzena Kierepka - Main Yoga Teacher Training Courses

"Where I can learn this?"
When I started going for Yoga classes it was in London, 1999, in a gym and I didn&;t even know what was this class was called. From week to week I started longing for the classes, waiting for Sunday to come so that I could go and practice yoga.
One day, bravely enough, I approached the teacher and asked, "Where can I learn more about this?”
Her answer was, "Go to India to this ashram in the south..."  
Two months later I was on a plane to India and planned to stay there half a year. On that journey I explored different styles, teachers and places. The rest is a history.
I fell in love with Yoga immediately and that love continues, even today!
The vastness of this subject, its depth, the different layers, connections, and its beauty are overwhelming.
I have tried and practiced different styles, but the one which speaks to me the most, (my body, my mind and soul), is Iyengar Yoga & Guruji B.K.S Iyengar, whom I met in Pune, India on few occasions.
I feel gratitude from the depth of my heart to my teachers: The Iyengar family, Hart Lazer, and Radjiv & Swati Chanchanis for sharing their knowledge with me and letting me experience the joy of Yoga.
 
Currently Marzena lives in Hanoi, Vietnam.  Since 2007 she has owned and operated Zenith Yoga Studio. She is married to Pankaj and has two beautiful boys, Aditya & Aayan.

They promised me coffee…
When I moved to India with my family, everyone split away; kids went to school and my husband to work. Luckily, I met a few ladies who were practicing yoga and fortunately they asked me to come and practice with them. At the time, Yoga was something ambiguous for me, but they said “come we are drinking coffee after practice!”
Soon after I discovered that Yoga was not something vague, nor trendy, but something that can really change the body and mind in the most positive way.
I was very lucky to have a great first Teacher, Chethan  Sateesh  who created my foundation, after which I soon established my love for yoga.
A few years later in Hanoi, fate revealed itself through my second teacher, Marzena Kierepka , from Zenith Yoga. Immediately after, I enrolled in the first teacher course under Hart Lazer who is till today my teacher.

My devotion for his teachings persuaded me to participate in an advanced teacher course in Manila, allowing me to develop my passion under many great guest teachers.

I strongly believe in teaching a solid foundation in the yoga practice and to send the message that Yoga is for young and old, to bring all people standing proudly in Tandasana.
