Pursuits for spiritual wisdom have brought me to a yogic path in 2005. My teachers are the most different and certainly extraordinary people. Nowadays I live and work as translator for different internet projects in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
I’ve graduated Penza State Pedagogical University and Moscow College of Animation and Cinematography. I was working in the International Federation of Red Cross, then as an artist in cinematography, and as a general manager in Art Gallery, nowadays I’m teaching yoga.
In 2001 while working for the International Federation of Red Cross I visited Asia for the first time. It was the first meeting with the philosophy of this part of the world and the first meeting with Buddhism. After the course of Vipassana (Buddhist meditation) which I took later in Moscow, there was no way back.
I travelled a lot and tried myself in different professions; it helped me to know many interesting and unexpected things about myself and the world around me.
Pursuits for spiritual wisdom have brought me to a yogic path in 2005. My teachers are the most different and certainly extraordinary people. I’m grateful to my teachers from Moscow Ashtanga Yoga Center, whose wonderful seminars in Simeiz, Crimea, I was attending due to skipping my work in cinematography. I`m finished 200 hours Teachers Training (International Yoga Federation Standarts) at Ashtanga Yoga Center in Saint Petersburg, 2009. And my special gratitude and love to Thakur Krishna Uprety, Sannyasi Vishnuswaroop (a founder of Divine yoga Institute in Kathmandu, Nepal), who inspires me with his example on my way of teaching yoga.
