On The Same TimeZone

We believe that there is a type of yoga out there to suit every body and everybody.

We encourage everybody to have a curious mind, ask questions and keep an open mind when exploring what unfolds.

We do not believe in quick fixes, and are the first ones to admit sometimes life is very challenging.

What we do believe in is the power of kindness, letting go of expectations whilst committing to being present and true in the moment.

Hello Friend, Glad to see you here.

I guess you are at least a little bit yoga curious, or maybe a seasoned practitioner. In any case, a warm welcome to you.

My name is Elina and OnTheSameTimeZone started as a blog back in 2016 when I was living in Cyprus. The name of the blog came from being originally from Finland, a country that shares the same timezone with Cyprus – That is about the only thing those two countries have in common.

At that time I had been practising various aspects of yoga for about a decade and had completed my first teacher training. The aim of the blog was to demystify yoga (and give tips on how to simplify life in general, as yoga helps with that too) and play a part in making it accessible to all. This is still very much true.

As a life-long athlete I have gone through few big injuries, teaching me valuable first hand lessons about (E/)ego, patience, rehabilitation and holistic approach to healing. We all have it in ourselves to make adjustments, step by step, to improve our wellbeing through yoga.

I would be honoured work alongside you.


What Type Of Yoga


A complete beginner, feeling tired, or just fancy something gentler paced? Classic Hatha Yoga is a class just for you. Hatha Yoga practice involves body, breath and mind. We practice key yoga postures leaving you feeling stretched and giving you a good foundation to access also other yoga styles. Each class also includes breath work and mediation.

Vinyasa Flow/Yoga HiiT

These classes are all dynamic, giving you a good cardio exercise. They help you to improve mobility and stamina, and build strength. A typical class can also include breathwork, a guided meditation and a relaxation, depending on the time available. Each class is sequenced slightly differently to keep things interesting, and modifications are given for all abilities. Some previous yoga/fitness experience can be helpful but not necessary.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is slow, still and relatively silent. It aims to put moderate stress on the connective tissues – fascia, ligaments and tendons – of the body. This can help to restore the range of motion in the body, as well as revitalising the body tissues. In Yin Yoga we hold each pose between 1 – 6 minute, working with gravity and awareness of the shifting sensations as the time goes by.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is literally about rest. We aim to slow down movement, breath and mind, which in turn helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. Restorative Yoga emphasises extensive use of props (such as pillows and blankets) to support the body to so the practise becomes accessible to everybody. Restorative poses are very subtle and passive, allowing for the body (and mind) to surrender and let go.

Restorative poses are very subtle and passive, allowing for the body (and mind) to surrender and let go. Restorative poses can be hold between 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the overall class length and the type of asana chosen. No background music is used either, and the combination of stillness and silence in a warm, safe and comfortable setting can be a profoundly soothing experience. Restorative Yoga requires no prior yoga or exercise experience.

Breathwork and Guided Meditations

Breathwork, Pranayama, and Guided Meditations are often included in my classes already, but they also work as standalone practice, without any movement. These practices can be done seated or lying down (often using pillows and cushions to be as comfortable as possible).

The applications of Breathwork and Guided Meditations are wide and far reaching. Maybe you are going through a rough time and feel the need for extra comfort, have trouble sleeping, or just want a boost for your confidence? You finally gave up smoking, realise you breath mainly through your mouth and would like some guidance and practice in (re)learning nasal breathing? These are just some of scenarios of how we can work together so get in touch to inquire more.

Chair Yoga

Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that can be done while sitting. Some poses can also be done standing using a chair for support. Like all yoga, chair yoga can improve flexibility, concentration and strength, while boosting mood, and reducing stress and joint strain.

Chair yoga can be practiced in regular office clothes, and it works wonderfully as a anti-desk break during your working day. It is also suitable for the elderly and less mobile audiences, or those recovering from an injury (please always consult your medical professional in advance.)
