We’re two ski and snowboard loving yoga teachers, who found each other in Myoko in 2017. Eszter was teaching at the international ski school, we met as we were both yoga teachers and instantly became friends. Having both spent a few winter seasons, we weren’t interested in drinking and parties anymore. So we connected over our passions, of yoga, the snow, meditation, Japanese culture and wellness.
