Born in Hungary as a Gemini-Leo, my parents named me: Földesi Orsolya Borbala. (imagine pronouncing that)
I have been a holistic practitioner since 21. So, nearly 20 years now.
Yoga entered my life at the age of 27. Living a highly driven life in the city of Budapest I started having environmental allergies, asthma, pains and aches, even panic attacks. My fantastic family doctor recommended Yoga to me, instead of taking pills. I took my first class with great resistance... oh, how I wish now that I started even sooner:)
There is an amazing Yoga studio in Toronto, called Downward Dog. They teach Ashtanga style Hatha yoga. The studio is situated on top of a restaurant on Queen Street, therefore the uprising warmth (and smells) always added some extra dimension to our practice. That is where I started loving the flow of motion in harmony with my breath, the sweat dripping off my body. That is where I learned to calm my mind and realized that every minute I spend on the mat will multiply the efficiency, focus, and health for the rest of my day. The effects of a 90 minute class lasted longer and longer, based on how often I practiced, so I became a regular practitioner and this has not changed in the last nearly 12 years.
I have became a Bikram Yoga teacher in 2009 Palm Desert California and taught over 2000 Yoga classes since.
I have taken multiple teacher trainings and many additional courses. The learning will never end. Even though at the studio our primary focus is Yoga Asana; meditation, chanting, healthy diet, cleansing, and other aspects of Yoga are also part of who I am. I base my life on the foundational principals of Yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas.
Since Flow Yoga Studio has opened on April 11th in 2014 I have been invited to teach classes for Lululemon Athletica, the Lole white tour, Shoppers Drugmart, BC Hydro, and other companies for private classes. I teach at the Health Centre of the Campbell River Band and other private people and groups. Developed and taught a program for local high school teachers on how to integrate Yoga philosophy and Asana in their daily life in the teaching room and beyond. Worked with the wild, open hearted, amazing youth at John Howard Society.
But what I'm probably most proud of is my regular staff teacher status at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. A safe haven for the wandering soul, a spiritual watering hole in the desert of our 21st century reality. https://www.eomega.org
My home base is on the beautiful Vancouver Island in Campbell River, Canada. Or as we call it: Paradise...
