Szymon Jaroslawski, PhD, E-RYT
Szymon has a PhD in Life Sciences from Institut Curie, Paris and work experience in the healthcare sector. However, his passion for work with people and for Global Health led him to India. He worked on a volunteering mission co-financed by the French government and a foundation for the development of science in developing countries. This project led to several publications in international scientific journals. During that time he also deepened his knowledge and practice of yoga, dance therapy and Thai massage.
He studied in India with several teachers from various traditions for 4 year and over 1,500 hours and he obtained diplomas of yoga teacher (RYT500), yoga therapist and Thai massage therapist. Szymon has led over 3,000 hours of private and group classes for people with various needs, including the blind and people with mental disability, as well as yoga therapy and prenatal yoga sessions. His students ranged from yoga lovers and people with health problems to senior managers of multinational corporations looking to cope with stress more effectively. Prior to his stay in India, he practised various meditation methods for 14 years.
In work with students, Szymon values constant dialogue and adaptation of practices to individual needs. He believes that the practice of yoga and dance therapy should serve us to connect with our true nature. Szymon is also the main creator of the syllabus of RYT Teacher Training Courses in the school in Kraków. His scientific background combined with over a decade of meditation practice has enabled him to create a unique program which blends ancient traditions of yoga with cutting-edge scientific discoveries. He believes that all concepts can be learnt through experimentation and self-discovery, rather than through memorizing and intellectualizing.

Vinay Jesta, E-RYT
“I strongly believe that yoga is for everyone, whether you are a spiritual seeker or a fitness enthusiast. Through yoga one can communicate with their body, mind and soul. I am on a mission to help people refresh and rejuvenate their bodies, relax their minds, connect with their breath and communicate with their soul. Also, I like promoting healthy eating habits and healthy lifestyle!”
Vinay is an experienced yoga teacher (500RYT) with over 6000 instruction hours. He is trained in various Yoga traditions and teaches Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa flow (Power), Ashtanga Vinyasa, Acro Yoga and others.
His teaching style is often called by his students as very “natural” and “playful”, as he grew up in India practicing yoga from early childhood.
In India, he led personal and group classes, as well as mass yoga events (with over 100 participants). He also organised workshops and outstation yoga retreats. He now lives in Kraków and teaches yoga at 5 Elements.See more photos and other events by this presenter
