Alena Kristinova
(Ashtanga Tristhana Trainer)
5+ year of teacher training experience

Born in Slovakia, she was attracted to yoga since her childhood. Her mom had a yoga book that she used to practice with and ever since she saw that book she wanted to learn more about it. She had first tried yoga as an exercise for the body (power yoga) in a local yoga studio, but slowly by the time discovered a more traditional method of yoga and its amazing benefits for the inner self, the peacefulness that comes with it. She has been practicing for over 10 years and has completed her first 200hrs Teacher Training Course with the Arab Yoga Foundation (AYF) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in 2016. Later she was giving classes to her friends and work colleagues in Saudi Arabia, where she worked as a flight attendant. Then in 2019, she decided to deepen her knowledge and traveled to India to join another 200hrs TTC. During this course, she met Yogi Pramod, who introduced her to the original ashtanga Tristhana method and he initiated her to continue her study and practice with him. She completed with him 500H Yoga Master Course and is now working as a support teacher with YogiPramod in YogaHut Tapovan Rishikesh, India.
