Practicing and instructing yoga has only recently become part of my day-to-day life. It’s extremely important to keep an eye on one’s advancement. You must never be content with the knowledge you possess, especially if you’re an instructor. But I gladly pass on what I’ve learned so far on my own and what others have taught me.
I started doing yoga in 2008 in the USA. That time I had been worrying more and more, working too much, had not got enough sleep, I had been tired and moody all the time and had a bad posture, so I decided to find an activity to help me eliminate the effects of office work and stressful life. This is how I came across with yoga.
I have always loved to be active and tried many sports. I got acquainted with yoga in 1987; back then we mostly relaxed and practiced a few positions. As a result of the training I started to read yoga books that brought about a vast change in my life. I started to live a slower-paced and more thoughtful life.
I have experienced various symptoms of modern life diseases while working at a law firm. I first met yoga in 2010 and experienced its positive effects very soon – not only by a radical weight loss and achieving a flexible body, but also in my mind. Yoga practicing gave me inner peace and harmony and confirmed some deeply smouldering thoughts in me about the universe and human existence.
My awakening, glimmery self-recognition led me to yoga. I had a wish for achieving more physical and mental power, courage, and self-confidence in everyday life. I started to dance, and then came my first ever encounter with yoga in the form of Bikram yoga. Its effects completely charmed and transformed me. Yoga has definitely taken me.
