Malvina is the founder of Hom Yoga. In 2009, she launched Hom Yoga—a yoga school for self discovery, transformation and empowerment through high quality teachings, set amidst a healthy and sustainably beautiful environment.
At the age of 12, she experienced her first yoga class and felt a presence of being that left her with the inner knowing that yoga would be an intimate part of her life. This knowing, combined with more than 20 years of study and practice in yoga, has contributed to Malvina’s unique perspective and approach. Malvina is a certified Vinyasa Yoga, Prenatal, Postnatal and Mindful Birthing, and Children’s Yoga teacher.
With the intention to bring yoga to empower as many people as possible, Malvina established Hom Yoga Training Academy—a world class yoga training academy where students can deepen their knowledge and understanding of yoga through immersive study and education. She believes that yoga can be so powerful when practised as a healing art, steeped in its traditional practices, which is more than just the asanas; ultimately leading us to greater connection and acceptance.
After the birth of her three sons, Malvina’s teachings and inspirations evolved into a new dharmic realm—one which supports women to have empowered and conscious pregnancies, births and motherhood. With this inspiration, she founded Mini Glow Yoga Club, a yoga school for mothers, babies and children where prenatal, postpartum, mums & bubs and kids yoga classes became a large and integral part of the studio’s offerings. She is a certified birth doula and a strong advocate of an empowering and intuitive approach to pregnancy, birthing and parenting.
Malvina has written several children’s books that bring the magic of yoga and mindfulness to kids through poetry, images and stories. Her works include The Rainbow Hearted Boy, My Book of Animal Yoga and the trilogy My Sun, My Sun; My Moon, My Moon and My Star, My Star.
