Leon has been practicing yoga for over 12 years, meditation (Satipatthana) and since 2014 he has been living and teaching yoga on Koh Phangan. The main instructor training he took in the Kyiv studio of A.Sidersky on YOGA23 and YWSAS. In addition - a TTC in India (Mahi Power Yoga), and intensive courses with R. Gammenthaler (Kundalini Parampara), A. Zinchenko (Ishvara Yoga), V. Zyuban (Yoga 23), E. Zhenetel' (Yoga23).
On Leon's classes, emphasis is on the synchronization of breathing with transitions between asanas and asanas themselves, on the development of a culture of movements in yoga, which makes the practice more harmonious, fulfilled, and effective. Classes in the "flow" mode (synchronous with the group) create resonance and enhance the effect of the practice.
Sunny's classes are famous for being physically, mentally, and energetically challenging. Her vinyasa yoga classes are a fun energetic continuous flow to help you improve your strength and flexibility. The precise details of proper alignment in each posture will help you stay connected with your body and the breath for each movement will help you stay focused. You can expect some advanced postures (with options for beginners) in her Vinyasa Yoga classes.
Universal Yoga is a multi-faceted system of methods that represent all the essential rules and laws of authentic yoga. Universal Yoga is about unifying all the methods and disciplines in authentic yoga that can be used for any and all individuals, and for any broad or specific goal. The asanas class will be oriented around the idea of creating balance in all the layers of self (physical, energetic, emotional, and mental) using the three main threads of yoga practice: body, breath, and mind.
The primary goal of practice is not to target the body, but to target one’s concentration, focus, and attention; to turn it all inward, creating a serenely stable inner atmosphere conducive to awareness & personal development.
