Ana Popescu

Founder

Alchemist Yogi,
Actress & Sound Master

Yoga Teacher, Sound Healer Gong Master with over 4000 hours of study, practice and certifications, Ana teaches Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, Hatha Yoga, Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga, Sound Healing, Mindfulness and various techniques of Breath Work and Meditation.
Ana’s international artistic career has included acting, dance, coaching and later on yoga, meditation and sound therapy. A journey that shaped her unique style of teaching-an Alchemist Yogi.
Her care, integrated and unique approach comes from her own personal recovering journey, including her move to New York City for 5 years to further her professional career. Studying and practicing eventually led her from New York to Hawaii, Portugal, London and Rome, teaching and working with people from all over the world. That was the beginning of a yogic path where she healed from various physical problems and emotional wounds, the major factors that affect society nowadays. She soon found a new sense of inner peace and she became dedicated to sharing this ancient wisdom as an expression of gratitude for her own freedom, story and transformation.
Guided by her teachers Ana followed her mission and dedication to Kundalini Yoga and returned to her native Romania, opening Pawan Studio of Yoga & Sound Healing in 2017. An urban yoga sanctuary for elevation and awareness, in the heart of the vibrant capital city of Bucharest, Pawan offers many yoga styles, with an emphasis on kundalini yoga and sound healing. Sat Nam Rasayan and Kundalini Therapy Medicine are her most beloved techniques that she applies and works with her students.
World-leading teachers Ana has studied with and been inspired by include: Guru Dharam, Mahankirn Kaur Khalsa, Dr Joe Dispenza, Dr Jeffrey Thompson, Deborah Coehn, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Amanbir Joe Singh, Don Conreaux, Mooji, Angelo & Katia Surinder, Guru Dev and Gurumarka Khalsa.

Funky and full of energy, Ana is based now in Bucharest where she acts, dances, rocks the gong, teaches and travels for both yoga and acting. She feels deeply that Love, Art, Empathy, Awareness, Acceptance & Meditation are the answers, she is dedicated to sharing the transformational technology of Kundalini Yoga for the betterment of people and humanity as whole.

My joy, gratitude and love for my teachers who taught me to gracefully seek and embrace my higher self, stay on the path of awareness and be a guide to those in need. In genuine consideration for the human essence and the ancient teachings, I opened this urban sanctuary so you can open, explore, be authentic, grow, smile, try the experience, gain wisdom, integrate the knowledge and live in your power.
Peace, Light and Love,
Ana Popescu – Prem Shakti Kaur

Georgiana

Although she comes from the corporate environment, her first love, sport, has never disappeared. Six years ago, she worked as a personal instructor for one of the country’s best-known fitness centers, and after about a year, she chose to start her life in the corporate environment without giving up her daily workouts.
Two years ago she discovered yoga, a new type of workout for her, taking into consideration her energy and dynamism. Soon, she realized that it was actually what she needed in order to create the perfect balance for her workouts and also in everyday life. She chose to deepen her knowledge in this area and she attended the 200H Yoga Alliance instructor certification at Scandinavia Fitness School.

With yoga, she learned to enjoy the present, to listen to her inner voice, and last but not least to live in a very creative and joyful way.
For her the yoga mat is the place where we can detach from the outside and we can be with ourselves in a conscious and profound way.
The joy of teaching can be observed by the pleasant way of teaching classes, classes that are created by combining different breathing techniques, dynamic or relaxing postures and also guided meditation.

Mircea

Passionate about ZEN school, philosophy, psychology and the concept of long-term health, Mircea develops from 2016 unique projects and programs in Romania on the part of health & wellness, such as the Reset Retreats Romania, OfficeYoga.ro and AirYoga.ro platforms.
With 6 years of experience in Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga, Mircea is a certified yoga instructor for Fitness Scandinavia and Y3 School of Yoga in London, under the guidance of Beko Kaygee. The specificity of his courses is the emphasis he gives to disciplining the technique of asanas and breathing, as well as the symbolic aspect of the practice and its connection with the events of daily life, which makes some of its courses become true philosophy seminars

Adi

I’m not an ordinary yoga teacher. I am a conscious observer of reality. Together we will holistically approach the human being, in relation to the Self, to the others and to the entire Cosmos. The life of a yogi begins outside the mat. My approach to yoga goes way beyond the mat, supporting you to integrate yoga in your daily life, to find relaxation in poses (asana) as well as in any other postures you may experience moment by moment in your relationship, at work or with yourself.
I’m not a classic Tai Chi teacher. I am a dancer living and experiencing life to its fullest. Tai Chi is the dance of elements and shapes without a form…the Cosmic dance of energies on the music of the spheres. Through Wuji Gong or Tai Chi 13 Yang Shapes you will learn how to follow in your Soul’s footsteps drawn long before your Personality. Allow me to teach you the steps… … I am an Alchemist and I will help you find the light where the shadows took control, transmute lead into gold, transform relationships with others only through your presence and aura, transcend the daily duality, descend into the depths of the Soul, exploring the subtle dimensions of your being to your highest good.
I am Adryang I am an Alchemist and I will help you find the light where the shadows took control, transmute lead into gold, transform relationships with others only through your presence and aura, transcend the daily duality, descend into the depths of the Soul, exploring the subtle dimensions of your being to your highest good.

Petra

Petra Acker has been making music for 25 years, being an active performer, composer, conductor, workshop leader and organizer of camps for children, adults and families. Over the years she has learned that authentic expression gives us the freedom to be ourselves, and all roadblocks on this road can be easily removed with the help of music. In 2014 she had the great joy of attending a seminar “Circle Singing” led by Roger Treece, co-producer of Bobby McFerrin, where he learned to use this technique of improvisation in a group by song, which in the meantime is the basis of the workshops. its with groups of all ages, from 3 to 200 people. Circle Singing gives Petra the opportunity to create music spontaneously with the participants, sometimes even on several voices, adapted to the rhythmic and musical sense of each group. These sessions not only help us to create music in a free way, but also to become more spontaneous, more creative, more free, to communicate more easily, to open ourselves more to the idea of “together”, to enjoy ourselves of the sounds of the soul and, perhaps most importantly, to develop a more harmonious relationship with ourselves and those around us!
