I began my practice of Iyengar yoga in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2005 where I was a Pilates Instructor. I was surprised how quickly yoga helped me feel more balanced and relaxed on and off the mat, and I understood the healing potential of Iyengar yoga.

I fell in love with Iyengar yoga and decided to become a yoga teacher. I completed the teacher training program first in Russia, then again at Yoga Centre Toronto, under the guidance of Marlene Mawhinney. I have made one study trip to India, and planned later my second.

I have been teaching Iyengar yoga since 2006, and at Yoga Centre Toronto since 2011. I also have been teaching in the Clarity Centre in Oakville since 2014, and have been building classes through from beginners to intermediate and more advanced classes.

I have weekly tuition from my Senior Yoga Teacher whenever it is possible, as I want to keep learning and improving. Yoga is my life.

As a teacher I am dynamic, precise, engaging, and gently humorous. Teaching for me is a great joy. This is something that I love and want to continue to do all my life.
