In 2005, she became a certified Bikram Yoga teacher, taught in Paris, then chose to bring Bikram Yoga to Prague, Czech Republic, where she currently owns two successful Bikram Yoga schools.
Tereza has organized many national and European championships. She is the Head of the technical committee of IYSF and leads the work on the posture guidelines. Currently Tereza focuses on the work on the educational structure (academy) of IYSF for teachers, coaches, judges and athletes. Her main goal is to help spread awareness of yoga as a sport by adding intermediate classes (yoga sport classes) and advanced methodical coaching (yoga skill classes) to the schedule of hot yoga schools which already have strong beginners’ classes.
By doing that we maintain the same culture and yoga tradition within our studios and bring in young people. We draw the attention of kids towards yoga sport competition, because skill classes are fun, and we also offer the other sport clubs kids ideal therapeutic compensation for their sport routines.
