Ludek took his first Iyengar Yoga class in 2010. As a university teacher by profession, he particularly liked the precise methodology that underpins the Iyengar approach to yoga teaching, which makes it challenging but also safe and accessible to everyone. He soon started his own home yoga practice, as a complement to attending regular classes. He’s been attending workshops and retreats with various senior teachers from the UK and beyond.

It felt natural that he wanted to share his personal experience of yoga. He joined the mentoring process to become a teacher with Debbie Bartholomew and Monica Bejarano Cortes in 2019.

He is now a fully qualified Iyengar yoga teacher, and has joined the Zagyoga team.

I have been taking classes led by Luděk for nearly two years now and really look forward to them as a time of concentration and calm positivity in my week. Luděk creates a safe and warm atmosphere in the group, but never fails to challenge us! He takes into account all our different needs and worries and is really encouraging about our progress. Thanks to the classes with Luděk there is a noticeable improvement in my flexibility, strength and ability to find some calm headspace.


I love my classes with Luděk! His instructions are clear and precise and he gives one-to-one feedback and adjustments wherever needed.
I have been doing Iyengar yoga for a while but I was always too scared to try shoulder stand. Now that I’m learning with Luděk, I can see myself growing in confidence and strength…now working on my headstands!
I have been so keen on the classes that I convinced my teenage daughter and husband to give it a try! My husband joined the classes a few months ago as a complete beginner and he is now an enthusiastic regular. Thank you Luděk! It’s all down to your teaching!
