However, somewhere tucked away deep in these unavoidable losses we find that small silver lining; a glimmer of peace, love and positivity.  Vyktoria bravely steps into this mode of being daily, through her dedicated practice to yoga, meditation and large doses of Mother Nature.

Astavakrasana is a pose that is dedicated to the sage Astavakra who, according to the myth, infuriated his father who then cursed him to be born crooked with 8 different body deformities. Eight Angle Pose may resemble the stereotypical contorted looking yoga pose found on the cover of popular yoga magazines. However, due to the beautiful nature of yoga, a pose stems much deeper allowing us to explore our mental flexibility.  The expression of the pose should engage the soul rather than the ego.
