Viktória Szentkereszty-Havas, PhD, RYT-200


Viktória studied psychology, neurosciences and completed her

PhD in biomedicine - with a focus on cognitive neurosciences - in 2014. 

Her research projects of the last ten years studied the mechanisms of

learning, memory and multilingualism. She has been studying yoga,

martial arts and other movement disciplines for over three decades. She

completed her 200-hour vinyasa teacher training in 2018 and her Restore and

Yoga Nidra teacher training in 2021. She brings her two passions -- yoga and

neurosciences -- together to broaden her understanding of the natural world and more specifically, she seeks to learn about how we can create a meaningful and healthy life for ourselves.  Her objective as

a yoga teacher is to provide her students with knowledge that empowers them to lead a more fulfilled and fruitful life.
