Kasia Pokrop Pokrop & Ombretta Dettori

About Kasia:

Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1983

Born and raised in Poland, Kasia left her home country at the age of 22. Starting her journey in Ireland, she continued to Belgium, Amsterdam, Singapore, and back to Amsterdam, where she found her new home. It was also here in Amsterdam where her yoga journey began.


Daily practice of Astanga opened another world to Kasia. She became curious, wanted to learn more about the practice, where it is coming from and how she can share it with others. She followed 50hr Anatomy course with Jose de Groot in 2015, then joined workshops with Petri Räisänen, Ken the Rolfer, Edie Stern, David Swenson.

She travelled to Rome to practice with Lino Miele, and when she was about to sign up for a teacher training to further deepen her knowledge about the practice, she got pregnant. The interesting thing is, it didn't stop her from anything. Instead, it helped her grow, become more humble, appreciate more what you can do rather than seeing what you cannot do, and most of all - enjoy the time of her pregnancy. Something she decided she wants to share with others as well. 

Following her mantra 'practice, practice, practice' she finalized Basic Teacher Training 200Hr with Claudia Pradella and Eva Ugolini, followed by Pregnancy and Birth Teacher Training with Birthlight, and around the same time she certified as a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner, The Mongan Method.

Today she has a chance to share her passion for Astanga, and help women through pregnancy with prenatal classes, and HypnoBirthing® courses. 



About Ombretta:

Ombretta is an Ayurveda Practitioner (Academy of Ayurvedic Studies) specialised in women's health, pregnancy and postpartum (Arya Ayurveda, India) and experienced in Pancakarma procedures (Yojana Ayurveda). She is also a Birth Doula (BIA Doula, Amsterdam) and an Ayurveda Postpartum Caregiver (Centre for Sacred Window Studies, California), an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher (200hrs YTT, Gregor Mahele and Monica Gauci) and a soon certified Yoga Therapist (The Yoga Therapy Institute, Amsterdam). Ombretta holds a Master Degree in Psychology and an HBO Level Degree in Medical Science. During her past corporate life she was an HR Manager and HR Business Partner, that which gives her a thorough understanding of organizational processes and dynamics.

 

Ombretta is happy to share her love for Yoga and Ayurveda online and in-person within the warm community of Delight Yoga where she offers Ayurvedic consultations, massages and treatments as well as Yoga Therapy individual sessions and Ashtanga Mysore classes. Ombretta is also part of the teaching team at the Delight Ayurvedic Academy and forever student. She feels fortunate to be part of the Delight Family and to be able to keep on learning and sharing with them her immense love for transformational practices that unfold in a safe space.

 

Yoga and Ayurveda entered her life almost at the same time. Applying slowly but steadily the principles of these two "sister sciences" into her daily life brought progressive changes that made space for what she needed the most: looking into herself and allowing "the new to settle. Since the very beginning she felt the call to visit Mysore - India – where she is committed to returning yearly to nurture her own practice under the guidance of R. Saraswathi Jois and R. Sharath Jois and many others generous and devoted teachers such as Dr. M.A. Jayashree, Sri. M.A. Narasimhan, VidwanLakshmish Bhat and Arvind Pare. Her curiosity for the therapeutic aspects of yoga exploded in 2015 when she met A.G. Mohan and Indra Mohan (Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda), both direct students of Sri. T. Krishnamacharya. Wanting to become a C-IAYT Yoga Therapist she started her study at The Yoga Therapy Institute in Amsterdam.

 

Gregor Mahele, Monica Gauci and Certified Ashtanga Yoga Teachers Eddie Stern and Luke Jordan represent a continued source of inspiration in approaching the yoga practice in a non-dogmatic way. In 2017 she moved to India for one year to study and practice under the guidance of exceptional Ayurveda physicians: Dr. Vijith Sasidhar, Dr. VidyaVijith, Dr. Shailesh Muli, Dr. Aiswarya Aishu, and also eventually met Dr. Amruta Athale. 

 

She loves simple things: the smell of freshly made coffee in the morning, crisp sunrises in the winter, strolls by the sea, cooking, reading and travelling the world (the one outside and the one within) and her furry friend Mia.
