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 shared her knowledge of Yoga with friends and started teaching courses in 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 specializing in the training of 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 asanas at her institutes in Italy and India.

Sandrina Carvalho (Portugal)
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 Yoga practice at the local gym and was surprised by the benefits; she experienced significant improvement in her mood and her tolerance levels. Sandrina continued practice for a few years and when she moved to Italy, she decided to grow her knowledge of Yoga, its philosophy, proper alignments and perhaps to teach.
She carried out her 200-hour teacher training with Yogamea. By the end of her learning experience she felt confident to begin teaching.
Sandrina began teaching beginners straightaway on the beach in Riccione. After the summer she taught in a gym, where she explored the more physical side of yoga with Power Yoga. She later taught Yin Yoga as a way to release mind and body……… learning how to appreciate the here and now.
in the 2015 Sandrina become one of our yoga instructors ..starting with the retreat students at the YogaMea school in Italy, where she had a rewarding experience teaching traditional Hatha Yoga asanas, 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.
Prahlad Singh (Rishikesh India)
Pralhad Singh is a great person and one of our Yoga instructors; he 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 kilometres.
Growing a work experience for several years in one of these schools, (Rishikesh Yog Peeth School) is considered to be among the best training in the world for yoga instructors.
Pralhad Singh, after years of teaching and research, 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 yet strong at the same time, humble with a generous heart, giving his undivided attention to each student ….all characteristics which make him a very special person and Yoga Teacher.
