Nikita snowboarder Sabrina Kusar followed a different passion this summer: yoga. And not only zen-ing out herself, but learning how to teach – at the roots of this ancient practice in India.

I had a great month in India following a Yoga teacher. It was hard; we woke at 5.30am, our day was full of activity until 8.00pm when we fell asleep as soon as we entered our beds. We had meditation, philosophy, ‘How to teach’, and Asana (postures)… Days were flying by and we learned a lot of things…. I feel that I have come back with a mountain of knowledge! We all increased our mental and physical capacity and I was super happy and proud of everything I’d achieved.
Once a week we went out the ashram for a walk to see the rising sun. It was sooo nice! Quiet, peaceful and surrounded by incredible landscapes. We crossed typical villages and children came to walk with us. Those little children had amazing and beautiful attitudes that I just fell in love with as soon as I saw.
The last day we had a super free day in Khajuraho with friends, went to the swimming pool of the hotel to relax and enjoy celebrating our certificates… Hummm after a month of austerity we enjoyed that day as much as possible… Every little thing seemed to be a huge good thing! Such as a hot shower, a piece of cheese or a hug from my boyfriend…. hahaha!
