About Me

Jelka Yoga around the worldMy name is Jelka. I love spending time in nature, whether in summer or winter. The water, the mountains and the forests are my personal power places. My body, mind and soul recharge in the great outdoors, thus coming into harmony, similar to what happens in yoga practice and meditation.

The first time I came in contact with yoga and meditation was when I lived in Thailand and Mexico between 2001-2005. However, it only became my great passion when I tried my first Kundalini Yoga class in Cape Town in 2008. Already in that first class I felt a sense of happiness and peace within me that I had not known before. I was immediately hooked on this new form of yoga. My life began to change slowly but steadily. From that moment on, I began to devote a lot of time to yoga and spirituality.

As a flight attendant, I began to travel to many countries during my vacations to deepen my knowledge in various trainings and workshops. I met many inspiring like-minded people and teachers who have enriched my life immensely to this day.

I have spent many months in India to be graced in the presence of those also learning Kundalini Yoga and others who have traveled from far to teach.

In Hawaii I was introduced to the sound and the message of Huna, also called Ho’omana which means to make life force. An integral part of Huna is Ho’oponopono, a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. Ho’ oponopono helps us to “come clean” with ourselves and our fellow human beings, to become “pono”.

Kundalini Yoga has helped me to open up in a fundamental way. That opening has allowed me to also appreciate other cultures and different perceptions as I started to fully practice the beauty of self-forgiveness and self-compassion. Through Ho’oponopono I learnt to forgive and love more, myself and others. I can be “pono” with a person in my heart, be “pure”, and still not want this person in my life, if this person is not good for me!
Ho’oponopono is an interesting inward journey!

In 2014 I took the training to become a grief and death counselor at the ÖBR in Vienna. One of my biggest learnings in that training was to give every feeling, every emotion the space it deserves, to accept what is. That is important in mourning, as well as in yoga, when from time to time not so pleasant feelings come up, which want to be looked at, in order to be processed eventually.

The Children- and Yin Yoga teacher trainings have deepened my journey of self-discovery even more: The Children Yoga teacher training has brought about a more profound healing of my inner child. The Yin Yoga training has helped to bring my feminine and masculine side more into balance, to consciously pay more attention to these two parts within me.

Since 2019 I have been doing online trainings with a teacher from Uruguay regarding energetic alignment and energy harmonizing techniques. These have enriched my spiritual abilities enormously.

I hope this gives you a glimpse of myself and my journey. Many additional trainings and workshops have shaped me and thus also flow into my yoga classes. I love to keep learning & sharing!

My wish is that you also have this uplifting experience on the yoga mat, when body, mind and soul vibrate in harmony, when the energy flows between your chakras! If we then carry this positive vibration into the world, the world becomes a little bit “more whole” – one person at a time 🙂

I look forward to accompanying you on your personal journey!

I currently teach mostly online in small groups of up to 6 people. I teach in English, German and Spanish. If you prefer private lessons, this is of course also possible. Generally I teach during the week from 19.00-20.30. Other times are also possible upon request.

On Thursdays I teach Kundalini Yoga from 6.15-7.30pm, Yin Yoga from 7.50-9.00pm & on Saturdays Yin-Yang Yoga from 10.00-11.30am at houseofyoga.at.

I look forward to reading from you via the contact form, Telegram or WhatsApp!

See you soon on the mat 🙂
