Ildiko Benko

Ildiko’s interest in Asian culture spans nearly 30 years, beginning as a teenager growing up in socialist Budapest, Hungary during which time she sought out cultural connections with Indians, Indonesians, and other Asians.  She followed her interest to New York, and then to Washington, DC, where her passion for Yoga started and continued over the next 15 years. She studied at Padmacahaya International Institute for Inner Studies, has received her Reiki Tummo attunement, practicing Heart Centered Meditation and channeling Reiki Tummo since 2009. After completing 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training at Barefoot Yoga Studio with Wai-Mei and Robert in May 2017, Ildiko is grateful to incorporate all her international influences, in a constantly updated blend of East and West of Yoga, Meditation, Reiki practice geared for today’s day-to-day challenges.
