Pauline Delcroix is a French scientist living in Prague for a few years. She met yoga many years ago through her Aunt but really deepened her practice when she started Dru Yoga in Prague.
Lída first encountered yoga as a child when she practiced with her parents. However, she became more deeply interested in it only as an adult after an injury of the spine. At first, yoga was a form of therapy for her. Later it became a way of life and when she began to feel she wanted to share her experience, she began to teach. She mainly practices Iyengar’s Hatha Yoga but also the dynamic Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. She has visited India several times where she studied yoga and completed Iyengar and Sivananda Yoga Teacher training programs. Her lessons focus mainly on relaxation, breath observation, detailed work of the body in individual positions and exercising upside-down yoga poses. Yoga means joy, open horizon and never-ending inner enrichment to Lída.
