I was born in Russia, also I lived in Belgium and Croatia. In 2010, I moved to Canberra.
Since 2012 I have been working as a busy yoga instructor, researcher, student and teacher. I have been privileged to meet and help many people.
I have been blessed with many gifts, a great family, great friends and a wonderful job. I have met amazing people and been a part of their healing journey. I continue to study and try new things. My focus is on self development.
"I experienced muscles weakness, pain, poor digestion and mood swings which were the results of thyroid gland dysfunction. I injured my neck when I was 28y.o and suffered from headaches for 2 years. The treatment couldn't help. Hypoxia was the results of poor blood circulation to my brain.
The lower back pain and bursitis were the results of poor posture (uneven hips and twisted pelvis.)"
I searched far and wide for answers to become physically and mentally stronger and healthier again. I was so motivated, I changed my lifestyle overnight and when I started practicing daily yoga, my health began improve.
'I do posture assessment, posture rehabilitation and posture habit re-education. I analyse each participant requirement and develop exercises to suit every individual. I focus on chronic pain solutions and state of mind by using the breathing techniques and meditation. I help people to reduce fear and improve self confidence. I freed myself from the chronic pain I had been experiencing for years. Since then, I has been determined to help people.'
