I grew up in the big beautiful city of Rostov-on-Don in the South of Russia. I graduated from Rostov Teacher’s Training University as a PE teacher and was guiding fitness classes there. “Be gentle to your body, listen to your body, trust life and enjoy what you are doing!” These were always my main principles in life and in the classroom.

When I came to America, I discovered yoga. I have been practicing Iyengar yoga for more than 10 years. 2015 brought new discovery: Strala yoga. All I was doing before now got a name: Strala. It’s not only yoga; it’s a way of life.

In the U.S. I have been teaching yoga, meditation, mindfulness for about 3 years. I also work full time as a Medical Assistant. I love spending time with my family, my dog Chiki, and enjoying beautiful Colorado.
