My name is Marta Witecka and I am a yoga, handstand and acroyoga teacher. I did my first handstand in 2011. My sister reminded me lately that I saw a video of someone doing a handstand and I said: “I will do it!” – that’s how my handstand practice started! It became my great passion, along with yoga and acroyoga which I discovered at the same time. Learning these disciplines had been a major part and transformation of my life at that time and learning a perfect handstand became my goal. Every day I was nourishing the motivation in myself not to stop until I reach it. Reaching it became more important than all excuses together! And I had fun doing it! I was enjoying the journey! I’ve learnt to turn frustration into motivation and enjoy all parts of the training – successes and failures or moments of stagnation when there seemed to be no progress. I don’t know exactly how long it took me to have a solid handstand and balance it without a wall – I think around one year. In the end I didn’t even notice when the goal was reached - the journey just continued.
BECOMING A TEACHER
I started to teach very soon after and have been a full time teacher since then, leading workshops & courses all around Europe. Over time I met other movement enthusiasts, exchanged with them and incorporated some teaching methods, that benefited my students most, into my teaching. It’s my passion to share what I’ve learnt and I’m excited to share it with YOU. After teaching thousands of people to do their first handstand I am confident to tell you: You can do it too! Don’t get frustrated and understand that you’re taking your body and mind on a difficult journey. Search for support from positive people. Learn from those who mastered the art you’re learning. Explore it. Do it for YOU. Be patient & most of all - believe in yourself.
