Svatava Novakova

Location: Eindhoven, The Netherlands Level: ERYT- 200 Studio(s): Sadhana Yoga Studio in Eindhoven
Svati, originally from Czech Republic, has been dedicated to dance and the rhythms of the seasons from an early age. When she started to be more aware of her body, the connection between her hearth and mind and the rhythms of life, like the moments of days, weeks, seasons, her life journey changed towards Yoga in 2003 and later in 2006 also towards Ayurveda path.

She studied with great teachers including Katiza Satya, Hilary Menting, David Swenson, David Williams, Manju Jois, Sri Dharma Mitra, Mark Whitwell, Johanna van der Schaft, Godfrey Devereux, David Lurey, Rusty Wells and Max Strom.
In 2006 Svati opened Sadhana Yoga Studio, where she started teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga classes.
After her colorful journey of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga she started to study with Shiva Rea in 2008. Svati felt immediately drawn to the Prana Flow® Yoga practice (created by Shiva Rea) as it corresponds with her own life, rhythm and flow. Furthermore she assisted Twee Merrigan several times during her workshops and teacher trainings where she recognized and realized that the Prana flow system expresses her view on Yoga and she has integrated this into her own practice and daily life routines.

In 2010 Svati finished her 200 hrs. program with Shiva Rea. Along with being dedicated to Yoga Svati also feel great love for her two French bulldogs goddesses, named Satya and Sukha and the horseback rides on Icelandic ponies. She is grateful for everything in her life, especially for being able to teach and to run her own Yoga studio. All of this in balance with nature and her surroundings.
