Edyta Krawczynska fell in love with photography 5 years ago just before she decided that rather than birthday presents, she’d like people to give her cash towards her Canon 1300D for her birthday (crafty much?). Not long after this purchase she decided to learn from the best and join a photography course led by renowned photographers Colin McPherson and Adam Lee, held on picturesque Easdale Island in Scotland. She loves sharing what she knows and will pass on what she found most useful during that course (and be on standby for when you need help with that pesky manual mode!).
Edyta found Joga Centrum, her second home, pretty much straight after her return from Manchester after 16 years of living there. And it’s a good job, as according to her, as there’s no better place to nourish the love of yoga. Soon to be yoga alliance certified, she also can’t wait to join you in your practice when we are in Lanckorona
TESTIMONIAL FROM EMILIA, WHO CAME TO OUR LAST RETREAT
I just returned from a wonderful yoga getaway with Monika, Kasia and Agnieszka. Right now I’m sitting in the middle of bittersweet nostalgia, and a serious afterglow. It was such a magical time. The ladies created and held beautiful and safe space. With yoga and body based practices, they gradually led us into deeper states of joyful inner peace. The other big element was the setting – the sweeping vista of the breathtaking mountains from the place we were staying at, and the ability to hike there. The group was really bomb, the alchemy of human connection unfolded so beautifully. And it warms my heart that after months of lockdown I was reminded how much I missed that. I went to workshops, festivals and events all over the world, and I can honestly say that the Ladies created an exquisite experience for us. Where are you taking us next?
