Seeking the path more spiritual since she was a young girl growing up in Poland, it was the philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita that led Braja on her journey to become a teacher of yoga and pranayama (breathwork) as well as a therapist, inspiring her to live a life of service and devotion.
Dedicating herself to self-inquiry and study, she has lived and learned in ashrams around the globe (from Belgium to Philadelphia to India). Even as a child, the code of seva, or selfless service, that she adhered to within her spiritual communities really resonated with her, and she continues to share these gifts with others. She completed a 500 hour Yoga teacher training course at Rishikesh Yog Peeth in India, where she studied hatha, kriya, pranayama and ashtanga, and has done other advanced teacher trainings, including the Ashtanga Primary Series in Mysore, India.
She is also a certified and licensed therapist with over a decade of experience, specializing in deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy.
It is Braja's purest joy to share the tradition of yoga and her keen understanding of asana and anatomy with her students and clients, uniting breath and body for healing and health on all levels. She hopes to be able to share them with you, too.
