ABOUT ME

mintyoga logo icon footer

I am Hajnalka and MintYoga is my personal brand what I set up to teach Traditional Hatha Yoga.

Teaching yoga for me is a complete joy, and I am learning every day from the people who come to my classes.They are my inspiration. I have lived in the United Sates for 9 years, where I met the deeper level of yoga, and graduated as a Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher (RYT 200).
But my connection to the European culture brought me back to Budapest, where I was teaching many classes until I moved to England. Now I am setting up my classes in Bournemouth, in this beautiful city by the sea, and invite you to continue this journey with me.
