#HaveweMET? | Yoga Teacher Sara Ticha

On a rainy Wednesday morning, the busy Coffee Pirates on Spitalgasse is overrun by hipsters, students and a group of young moms exchanging baby tips. Huddled in a corner with her laptop, Sara sips on black coffee and manages her class bookings online. The millennial answer to an ancient practice.

Yoga For Everyone!

“Community, change and growth – That’s how I describe my work. I chose the word community because I didn’t want to start a yoga studio. I keep my classes small so that each and every student feels included, and gets the attention and adjustments they need. It’s also easier to get to know one another in a small group and I find its a great opportunity for my students to meet other individuals who share their passion. Whoever comes to my class is encouraged to open their minds to the idea of endless possibilities – people often come to yoga class with a negative belief system about themselves and their physical abilities. I want to use the yoga practice to challenge that belief system and allow them to discover their capabilities on and off the mat.”

The Viennese Connection

“When I moved to Vienna from Slovakia seven years ago I had very little understanding of the German language and no clue what I want my future to look like. Vienna gave me an opportunity to find myself. It’s such a diverse city, and the many opportunities it offers really allow one to grow and evolve into whatever their heart desires. My favorite spot in the city is The Prater turm roller coaster – if you’re looking for a great view it’s especially magical on a summers night.”

Dear Readers…

“If you’re planning on starting your own business, take a moment to map out your motives. While its only natural to expect to be on the recieving end, a business flourishes when its main motive is helping others and always asking the question; what can I do for someone else today?”
