Hi, my name is Wanda Badwal. How I came to find myself on the yoga mat is something that still inspires me. I was exposed to meditation and spirituality from an early age on, as I grew up in a very alternative family and I feel I have been guided down this path ever since. In 2008 I moved from Hamburg to Berlin and found a personal refuge and oasis at the Spirit Yoga Studio and my quest to go deeper began in earnest.
In Germany I had trained as a professional musical actress and undertook studies in singing, acting and dancing. This had assisted in launching me onto the media stage and I found myself both in front of and behind the camera. One of my favorite passions is still as a photographer who can capture the essence of a story in a single image.
These times were both testing and trying as what I was putting out was not returned to replenish the deeper craving I had. At times I exceeded my own limits of expectation and energy. I came to know all too well what it means to lose yourself in the external world.
My journey from an external focus to finding a more internal (and surprisingly larger) space was driven by a strong desire to find more depth to my existence and deal with the bigger questions of life. I partook in silent retreats, meditation seminars, Ayurvedic massage training in India and continued to dive into the teachings, philosophy and practice of yoga. Not only as a physical practice, but as a way to live a more sustainable life and become the best version of myself.
I want to share all I have learnt on my journey with other souls who are embarking on their own voyage of self-exploration. What this means for each individual varies greatly but I would love to offer my services to support and enable each person to flourish and connect with the path of the heart.
In gratitude, Wanda
