"For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose."
- Ecclesiastes 3:1
In 2005, owing to my mama, I had my first taste of collective yoga class. I found the experience rather stressful for a number of reasons, and I promised myself not to be back. However, the Universe had other plans for me and that clearly did not include continuing to walk the bright path of International Commercial Law and Finance. I was born and raised in the Siberian part of Russia and currently, I'm an adopted Parisienne, living on the Rive-gauche and admiring Rive-droite on the weekends.
Speaking of my teaching approach, I don't represent any particular 'style' of yoga. I strongly believe in tailoring the practice to the needs of the practitioner, not the other way around. Once I was lovingly told that my teaching approach is like 'carrot and stick' metaphor and I feel it could be just about right.
I didn't come to yoga with the healthy body, yoga found me with the freshly torn medial meniscus. Soon after, the egoistic me, through the 'sporty yoga practice' became an owner of the hamstring tear that took me 25 months to heal. A couple of years ago, I was presented (through the adjustment by a teacher) with the shoulder injury. Owing to the (r)evolution of my own practice and various trainings, my definite focus is on the therapeutic aspect of practice. It's not wrong to do 'Cirque du Soleil' from time to time but let us not lose the essence.
Above all in people I value empathy and I believe that there is time and place for everything. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions you would like to ask me - click the button below.
