About

Welcome! My name is TOms. I am Mindfulness & Yoga coach who believes that answer to our problems is to be present and learn to love the stress. πŸπŸ’
I love observation of mindset and use of mind-control through study and practice of meditation, psychology, symbolism, tarot, and many other fields…
Β 
I love being active and spending time in nature: yoga, martial arts, hiking, exploring, gardening, foraging… I love to travel, taking photos, and discovering the marvels of this world in nature, food, different cultures, and people.Β 
I enjoy a fruit & plant-based diet. Living on a fusion between raw and cooked foods.
I enjoy mysteries of the world, science fiction, secrets, occult, mind, subconscious, symbols, and self-development.Β 
Β 
I believe in a holistic approach – everything is connected. No matter where you start: all parts need to be taken care of by building mindful relationships with our mind, body & heart.Β 
My approach follows my own journey: first physical release, then building up physical energy and momentum. As you start to like yourself more, mindfulness is becoming more pleasant and easy. As you observe your mind & heart you make better choices and decisions. And before you know you are more and more present – to yourself and others!
Β 
I love language plays like “Be present” & “Bee present” & πŸπŸ’.

Logo

My logo is the bee. 🐝 Its homophone to β€œbe”, which implies staying present and aware, being alive. Being alive means to be happy, follow your passions and enjoy the life with gratitude. 🐝

Bees also symbolizes the wise use of nature in a sustainable way, community spirit, team effort. Taking care of others and personal power at the same time. It’s also a symbol of the sun and celebration. A balance between hard work and enjoying the fruits of the labor… honey. πŸ₯°οΈ

One more interesting fact – similar to an advanced yogi, bees can control their body temperature. Be like a bee. Be strong, consistent & stay humble. 😊
