1. Bio-Mechanics of Asana.

In this class we’ll explore the fine details of Asana. Included will be anatomy, physiology, and specific instruction on finding clear access points to a variety of Asana. There are numerous ways to get inside any Asana, here we will use repetitive movement, partial movement, and poses held from a short period to long held poses, to find ways in that will be best suited to each practitioners specific body type, and needs.

2. «Opening the Gates of Revelation». Asana as Preparation for Pranayama.

In this Hatha Yoga class, we’ll explore a variety of access points through Asana for the practice of Pranayama. Pranayama in Sanskrit is the combination of two words Prana, meaning “life force, and Ayama, meaning “control” or “mastering of”. In order to recognize Prana and its subtle movements, one requires the physical body to be open and receptive to these movements. Once the physical body is prepared we then can delve deeper into the practice of Pranayama.

In «Opening the Gates of Revelation» we’ll look at specific Asana for accessing Prana. In the course of this workshop we’ll build a sequence of Asana to open the physical body to its’ maximum receptivity for the subtle practice of Pranayama. This sequence will include hip openers, twists, shoulder openers, back bends, and some inversions.

Once this preparation is complete we will begin the journey of Pranayama. This will include specific Kriyas to prepare the nadis of reception; included will be Agni Sara, Nauli, and Kaplabhati. Next a variety of Pranayama will be explored, included will be Ujjai, Bhastrika, Samavritti and Nadi Shodana. In order for this practice to be complete we will also delve deeply into the location and practice of Bandas.

This class is best suited for those practitioners that have some understanding of Asana, and are looking for a way to deepen their experience of Pranayama and Yoga. Come with an open mind and we’ll all learn something together!

3. Tantric Hatha Flow.

Tantra and Hatha yoga are deeply connected to each other by their roots. Ha-Tha are powerful practices that allows us to bring together two opposite energies into a symbiotic relationship for clarity and transformation. The word Tantra comes from Sanskrit, its root tan means to expand, and the word tantra means to weave, or loom together.

There are several important aspects to a Tantric practice. These include Deva, Mantra, Mudra, Prana, and Nyasa. As we are connecting all the elements of a Tantric Hatha practice, we’ll also include a dynamic alignment based Asana sequence that will allow us to flow from one practice to the next.

Initially, we’ll look at the above mentioned practices on their own, and as the workshop evolves we’ll begin to incorporate these practices into one flowing practice. In this incorporative practice, we’ll have the opportunity to experience the profound connection between Hatha and Tantra. Come with an open mind and we’ll all experience the depth of Tantric Hatha Yoga!

1. MahaMetta Thai & Fly

Therapeutic flying and Thai massage are the practices that hone an AcroYogis ability to be sensitive and receptive. Students will learn and practice honest, clear, compassionate communication to build the foundation of partnership. We will draw upon the natural forces of gravity and «metta» loving kindness to encourage the body to let go of fear and tension. The flow of basing and flying, giving and receiving, honoring and accepting, inhaling and exhaling will take both yogis into a new place of union and bliss.

1-3. Jivamukti Yoga

to be updated



I was born in Moscow, Russia in 1981. Moved to New York City when I was 10. Growing up in the city did a lot of various appropriate and not so appropriate things a teenager can do in NYC …. Over time however I realized that none of them provided the answers I was searching for.
In spring the of 2001 a friend offered to take me to a yoga class. Yoga was popular and so I naturally became interested and agreed to go. It was an open class at the Lafayette Street Jivamukti Yoga School taught by Uma Saraswati. I fell in love with her voice! Everything that she brought up in class spoke to me…I felt an amazing feeling that I couldn’t quite describe, it felt like home. The feeling brought me back and back and back again … and gradually I begun to understand that everything I have done before was absolutely perfect and that it had to happen to bring me here!
In the Spring of 2004 my husband Max and I moved to Moscow. A year after we opened a small yoga center (NYM Yoga) and a year after a second one. I completed the 300h Jivamukti Teacher Training in 2009 and so much good has happened since.
I am so grateful to my “karma” to have the opportunity to be a student and teacher of such a complete yoga method as Jivamukti. I humbly bow down to my dearest teachers Sharon Gannon and David Life. Their wisdom transcends all barriers. Jivamukti Yoga has created a life full of second to second consciousness on all levels. I am so thankful to my family, my parents for being who they are, my husband Max, daughter Mia and our dog Kostya for their big love and support toward everything I do. I am very grateful to the entire Jivamukti community and all the teachers that have supported NYM in Moscow. (Sharon–ji, David-ji, Cat Alip-Douglas, Yogeshwari, Petros, Gabriela Bozic, Andrea Boyd and Jeffrey Cohen, Anja Kunhel, Dechen Thurman, Moritz, Michi Kern, Kristine). Each one of you has provided me with priceless knowledge and a life lasting impression. I am so very grateful to my dear friend and teacher Anya Lunegova, her strong attitude, loving support and kind heart has shaped me to become a more humble person, confident teacher and a devoted student. And last but definitely not least, I bow down to the entire NYM Yoga satsang. You are amazing!

2. Economical form (asanas). Work with relaxation, attention and breath in statics.

3. Balanced form (asanas). Wave motion. Balance of effort, relaxation, movement and statics. «Wave technology» in yoga.


Andrey Didyk. Author of «YOGA – The geometry of forms» DVD. In childhood and teenage years practiced forest and mountain hiking, rock climbing. The word «yoga» was unknown to me until the student years. Than i felt interest to search… I was in good health physically, just suddenly everything became clear … Then I found yoga. This was the beginning of the 90′s. That time in Russia and Ukraine were only two well-known yogateachers – Andrey Sidersky and Andrey Lappa. I had several workshops, a lot of self-practice, and later – regular classes with Anatoly Zenchenko. I decided to teach only in 2000 – in the club of Kiev freedivers. And it became my profession only in 2005, when I led the first class in yoga studio of Andrey Sidersky in Kiev. Since then i teach regularly in groups and retreats. I keep searching for efficiency in practice. If we spend time, spend it with maximum impact and results. All of what I teach – tested on personal experience and deep reflection. I do not have a style, but a concept that is applicable in any style and direction. The style may be limited, the concept can be deployed in any form or by any form.
My motto is: «The form shows the content, content generated by the form.»
