Anastazja Holečko has first met Dr Nida in 2004 during her medical studies. Enthusiastic about finding the system that combines both medical and spiritual knowledge, she decided to study both Western and Tibetan medicine parallelly. After graduation as MD from the Medical University in Lodz, Poland, she moved to Prague, Czech Republic, where she lives and practices the Healing Science until today. She has founded SKY branches in Poland (2011) and Czech Republic (2012).
The author of various articles on Tibetan medicine, she has been the "mother" and the main editor of the Journal of Traditional Tibetan Medicine - now Sowa Rigpa Journal since 2007.
Since 2011 Anastazja has been teaching different aspects of Sowa Rigpa, and is especially passionate about Diet, Lifestyle, and Chulen - rejuvenation.
