Annick Cuvelier

I am a full time yoga teacher (500 hours YA certified) and inspirator of Yoganic Moves. I am passionate about yoga, travel, sports and movement.

In 2012, I decided to make a drastic shift and left my stressful job and went on a world trip in the search for more meaning. It was during my travels in Asia that I dove deeper into yoga, its philosophy and started finding more clarity. Shortly after, I decided to become a yoga teacher and I finished my first training in 2013.

Since 2014 I have been studying with Yoga Medicine, with orthopedic modules on the spine, hips and shoulder and training in Chinese Medicine, Yoga for Athletes, Yin & Meditation, Mental Health.

With Yoganic Moves, I love to take you on a journey that allows you to grow, to transform, to get stronger in body and mind and live your fullest potential.

Svatava Novakova

My teaching experience started in 1999 (dance background).Coming originally from the Czech Republic, have been dedicated to dance and the rhythms of the seasons from my very early age.

After my colorful journey of Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, I started to study the Prana Vinyasa flow with Shiva Rea in 2008. Felt immediately drawn to the practice as it corresponds with my own life, rhythm, and flow.Since 2009 assisted Shiva Rea regularly on her Global retreats and events in Europe and South America (Costa Rica).

In the classes I cultivate a deep awareness of yoga, including movement meditation, using music, mudras, mantras, and poetry cues to deepen the flow.Love to allow my students to feel the natural inner flow of their bodies. Let them be completely themselves and get inspired to explore their yoga path on the mat.Riding the waves of breath, change, and life rhythms.Living, loving, pulsing, and serving life in all forms.
