Ma-Na's Yoga brings together the gentle but effective exercise of the body and mind, helping to bring peace to the inner spirit. At Ma-Na's Yoga, we don't just teach different Hatha yoga positions, but we also concentrate on breathing techniques and peaceful contemplation, to aid in emptying the mind of all the thoughts and worries of a busy day. The breathing and contemplation techniques taught can be used even when not exercising the body to help reduce the stress of modern living.
We teach children's group yoga classes, as well as adult group yoga classes, and we can also cater for one to one yoga tuition at your home if you wish. We are prepared to travel up to 10 miles radius of Hemel Hempstead (the Berkhamsted, St Albans, Watford area).
The Yoga Teacher
Ma-Na-'s Yoga is run by Mariana Peneva, an experienced yoga teacher and gymnastics coach, who has taught yoga and gymnastics to children and adults since 2005. In her youth Mariana was a gymnastic competitor in Bulgaria and so understands the discipline which children and adults need to apply to be successful in life.
Mariana took up yoga as a way of remaining fit and supple so that she could continue her love affair with gymnastics as a coach to children who share similar aspirations to her own younger self.
Along with her years of experience of performing and teaching yoga, Mariana holds Gymnastics Coach and Fitness Instructor qualifications, as well as being qualified and experienced as a first aider and nursery nurse. Mariana has been CRB checked for her previous part time gymnastics coaching role at Sapphire Gymnastics Ltd, Hemel Hempstead Sports Centre. Mariana is also occasionally asked to be a guest yoga teacher at the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in Great Gaddesden near Hemel Hempstead.
