Seda Ozsoy

Yoga Instructor I was born in Ankara in 1981. My personal process of becoming as of 1987 has been accelarated with Yoga classes that I started teaching at Bilkent University Sports International in 2000. This life-long learning and teaching Yoga experience enables me to discover recognition of oneself and others. Through various training activities I have established basic information and knowledge about sports and exercises. As I have not had a chance to start Yoga with a Yoga instructor, I believe that the best mentor is within oneself through self acknowledgement. Several trainings and workshops that I have attended in the following years help me to synthesize information from different perspectives. Teaching and sharing Yoga inspires me to create a meaningful and holistic approach for not only Yoga but in all walks of life.
