At Yogamea School of Yoga we have several teachers who will lead you through the 200 hour yoga teacher training course.
Timea Vitez is our permanent teacher, but during the course we add a special guest teacher as well.
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 began studying and practicing 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 came to establish a trusting 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 comes 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 institution in Goa, India. She is currently involved in the teaching of yoga anatomy, 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 practicing at the local gym and really enjoyed it, she saw big improvements on her mood and her patience levels. Sandrina kept practicing for a few years and just 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 so much and felt confident to start teaching.
Sandrina started teaching beginners straightaway on the beach in Riccione and after summer she started teaching in a gym, where she explored the more physical side of yoga with Power Yoga and later she started teaching Yin Yoga as a way to release mind and body and learning how to appreciate the moment.
Last summer Sandrina taught the retreat students in the YogaMea school in Cesenatico, where she had a beautiful experience teaching traditional Hatha, complete with asana, mantra and pranayama.
In the beginning of 2017 she completed the 500 hours RYT in Rishikesh, where she learned so much more than she could hope.
This is her yogic path until now, but it’s only the beginning as Yoga is a life long journey with no end.
