As one of only two native yoga instructors at Yoga in Kosovo, one of my passions is promoting my country positively abroad. I hope to shed light on the dim image that we as a country and people have received due to our unfortunate historical circumstances.
Given the recent history of war with Serbia, poor economic circumstances, high unemployment, and social and psychological traumas inherited from years in conflict, disciplines such as yoga may fit naturally in Kosovo's society. After obtaining my yoga certification, I decided to start teaching and have been doing so for the last several months.
The idea for taking the following pictures around Prishtina, the capital of Kosovo, came about from this very desire: to use yoga to promote the good and the beautiful of my country, Kosovo.
