Maa Shakti Anand
My name is Ursula Pieter and in India I got the honour to receive my yogi name: Maa Shakti Anand. The meaning of Shakti is power, energy, inner happiness. I grew up in a family where sport played an important role. As a little girl I was very much passionate about doing ballet and gymnastic and I loved to dance. Dancing is something that has been my passion for life.
In my 20’s I got my diploma in Fitness Instructing so I became a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor. I found it very interesting to teach people having a healthy lifestyle. I also did further studies in nutrition and became a certified Nutritionist. At that time I thought that physical activity and healthy eating was enough to have a healthy lifestyle. Several years ago I found out, thanks to my own experience, self-awareness training sessions and meditation that a healthy lifestyle was not only to eat healthy food and exercise.
There is something more; it is the balance between the body, mind and soul. Of course, it is important to find time to make it happen. Meditation and Yoga helps me to go to a deeper place within myself. My inner self is my personal true, my internal soul and nature that has been within me from the day I was born. To learn more about my inner self I decided to go on a journey to India, where I lived in an Ashram and learned a lot about yoga and meditation and most of all, about myself.
After my 5 weeks journey, I felt complete, peaceful and independent from the outside world. I was proud of myself and happy about finding the way to love myself again. I got my own power back. "I am Shakti". I became a certified Yoga Instructor/Therapist that I am very proud of. I discovered the most important about Yoga being not only the movement (Asana), but also breathing (Prana), meditation and philosophy of life.
Being a mother of two young girls and a business woman, it is sometimes also for me difficult to find the balance between the private life, work, being a good mother, a girlfriend, a partner and an entrepreneur. It takes a lot of energy to combine everything but now I know what helps to gain the energy back. I make enough time for myself, to do yoga, meditate and exercise in the gym and be in connection with the nature. I live in the present; I observe my feelings; I listen to my body and the rest… Let it happen!
Maa Lakshmi Anand
My name is Slavomira Frankova and yoga found me at the time when I was looking for a change in my life.
I was a happy child full of energy, spending all my free time on the playground, running, jumping, singing, dancing... always looking for a new challenge to keep from getting bored. I remember making up dance routines for my girl friends that also made our friendships stronger and the time we spent together was full of joy, creativity and great energy.
After finishing my studies I started to experience the work life, I lived in different places, I traveled a lot, always looking for a change in my life :-) I truly believe Yoga found me at a point in my life when I needed it the most. I started to practice daily attending group classes in a local yoga studio.
Things have started to change - I stopped having a cold that I used to have a few times a year, my back pain disappeared, my sleep improved, my concentration improved, my self-confidence increased and many more. Overall, I have become a happier person and learned to live in the present.
Realizing all this I wanted to start sharing my experience and showing others the benefits of yoga and meditation. So I decided to go on my own journey and learn more about it and my inner self in India. I lived in Paramanand Yoga Ashram. It was a transforming and blissful time that I had. I became a certified Yoga Instructor/Therapist that I am very proud of. I also had the honour to receive my yogi name from my great teacher Dr. Omanand (also known as Guruji). As Maa Lakshmi Anand (The Goddess of Wealth) it is my passion to share what I have learnt and help people find their inner balance.
