At Yogamea School of Yoga, we have a team of instructors who will lead you through the 200-hour yoga teacher training course.
Timea Vitez is our permanent teacher. During our courses, there will also be a special guest teacher.
We understand how important it is to have a good feeling with the teacher, so we always try to find a good balance between the western mentality and the eastern way of yoga, the traditional Indian way taught by our mother school in Rishikesh – Rishikesh Yog Peeth.
Let’s meet the team!
Timea Vitez (founding teacher)
Timea discovered yoga after having a serious car accident many years ago.
She is an HR – RYTT (Highly Recommended Registered Yoga Teacher Trainer), with over 10,000 teaching hours and over 25 years of Yoga life experience.
She began studying and practising on her own from an old book a friend had given her.
Discovering a great passion for Yoga, a few years later she ventured towards her first trip to India where she took part in a Yoga Teacher Training program of 200 hours at The Rishikesh Yog Peeth School
Happy with her first experience, but eager to go more in depth, she returned to Rishikesh several times over the next few years and repeated the same course experience numerous times.
She began passing on her knowledge of Yoga to friends and teaching various courses between Italy and Hungary.
She also attended the 300-hour course and specialized in Hatha Yoga as well as in Ashtanga Yoga.
Over the years she established a special relationship with the “mother school” in Rishikesh. She became a member of the team of instructors while continuing her studies.
Years later, and after a certain degree of experience, she decided to offer something similar in Europe. So in 2010, she created the name of what is now an institution and a hallmark: YOGAMEA.
YOGAMEA is derived partly from her name, Timea (MEA) which means “my” in Latin. – YOGAMEA……. “MY Yoga”
In Italy in the summer of 2013, together with her partner Davide Bedetti, they founded their first Yoga School institute specialised for Hatha Yoga teachers. Within a year she founded the second institute in Goa, India. She is currently involved in the teaching of yoga anatomy, physiology, mantra chanting, meditation, yoga philosophy and asana at her institutes in Italy and India.
Timea, over the years, has developed a great strength of will and knowledge of the human body applied to Yoga.
Thanks to her great passion and patience, every class is renewed with great enthusiasm and participation by her students
Sandrina started to practice yoga in London to manage the stress of living in a big city, to help her cope with quitting smoking and as a way to ease her back pain caused by an accident in 2005.
She started practising at the local gym and really enjoyed it; she saw big improvements in her mood and her patience levels. Sandrina continued practising for a few years and when she moved to Italy, she decided that she wanted to know more about Yoga…………it’s philosophy, proper alignments and maybe to teach.
She did her 200-hour teacher training with Yogamea. She learned a lot and felt confident to start teaching.
Sandrina started teaching beginners straightaway on the beach in Riccione. After the summer she began teaching in a gym, where she explored the more physical side of yoga with Power Yoga and later teaching Yin Yoga as a way to release mind and body……… learning how to appreciate the here and now.
Last summer Sandrina taught the retreat students in the YogaMea school in Cesenatico, where she had a wonderful experience teaching traditional Hatha, complete with asana, mantra and pranayama.
At the beginning of 2017, she completed the 500-hour RYT in Rishikesh, where she learned much more than she had hoped for.
This has been her yogic path up to now, but it’s only the beginning as Yoga is a lifelong journey with no end.
Pralhad was born and raised in Rishikesh, the capital and the “natural mother” of Yoga, a city where everyone can experience one of the oldest, yet current, philosophies of life. Those who have the good fortune like Pralhad, to be born in this environment…… where from day one everyday life revolves around the practice of Yoga, it becomes an integral part of their lives.
Rishikesh boasts a large number of Ashram and Yoga schools, more than 200 today, in an area of 10 square kilometers.
Growing a work experience for some years in one of these schools, (Rishikesh Yog Peeth School) is considered to be among the best in the world for yoga instructors.
Pralhad Singh, after years of teaching and research, has decided for the first time to leave the boundaries of his native area to spend his first season with Yogamea School, in the south of India in Agonda Beach, Goa.
His style of teaching is methodical and dynamic, and the experience he has acquired has led him to create his own style of teaching: gentle and strong at the same time, humble with a generous heart, giving his attentiveness to each student ….all characteristics which make him a very special person and Yoga Teacher.
