Who am I?

I am a reader, writer, researcher, teacher and yogi.

Hello everyone,

My name is Alyona. This is my personal blog where I will share insights into my passions: reading, arts, culture, health, mindfulness and personal development. I originally come from Russia and have lived in different countries before finding a home in Melbourne, Australia. I love reading and would like to share my personal insights into books, cultural events, personal development and my life. I also enjoy yoga and meditation and will write a bit about my spiritual journey.

I hold a PhD in business and do enjoy doing research and teaching. In my free time, I enjoy creative writing and I have recently started to write my first non-academic book! I hope to contribute to a supportive community of fellow writers and readers here. Let’s engage in thoughtful discussions!
