Petra went to her first yoga class in 2004. Four years later, she met Manju P. Jois (eldest son of Sri K. Patthabi Jois) and Nancy Gilgoff (first western woman to be taught by Sri K. Patthabi Jois) and became a dedicated Ashtanga yoga practitioner. 

Petra is following the traditional lineage of Sri K. Patthabi Jois, as carried by Manju P. Jois. Each year she hosts and assists Manju in Prague for workshops and teacher trainings.

Petra is dedicated to carrying the torch of traditional Ashtanga yoga and sharing the amazing tradition of Ashtanga yoga with anyone who is inspired to practice.

With a young family Petra no longer teaches daily classes and instead teaches private classes and invitation Mysore classes. 

During Petra's pregnancy, Manju advised Petra on how to modify her daily practise and this advice has been now published in Petra's book "ASHTANGA YOGA v těhotenství PRVNÍ SÉRIE" currently available in Czech language.
