Teachers

Anna

Anna is authorized KPJAYI level 2 Ashtanga Yoga teacher and received as well the blessing to teach from the son of Pattabhi Jois (Manju Jois) www.ashtanga.com.  She has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. In 2008 she was introduced to Ashtanga yoga and instantly was captured by the beauty of this unique style.

She has been blessed with the opportunity to practice and study with senior teachers such as Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor (participating to their magnificent 200 hours course in USA / Colorado), Manju Jois (various teacher trainings primary and intermediate), David Swenson (teacher training, primary series) and Kristina Karitinou (various teacher trainings from primary and intermediate series). Anna feels that the most important quality for an Ashtanga teacher is to continue to be a student. She keeps practicing on a daily basis under senior teachers' guidance, and every year she returns to Mysore to study with Sharat Jois.

English version (Russian below)

I am practicing since I was young, first with classic and folkloristic dance in Lviv , Ukraine. In 2001 I started teaching fitness and aerobic as well as yoga, which became my personal passion.
Since many years I have been continuing to deepen my knowledge and studies in PowerYoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at PowerYoga School of Roberto Bocchi in Torino, where I’ve got the certificate of PowerYoga instructor level 5.
On the other side I deepened my knowledge also in Ashtanga Yoga . I did Teacher Training 1 and 2 series with Kristina Karitinous and attended several Ashtanga Yoga workshop with authorised teachers like Lino Miele, Eddie Stern, Manju Jois, Gabriele Severini, Laruga , Arne Espejel and Taylor Hunt.
I continue practicing with authorized level 2  teacher Anna Babenko Elbaz. 
I love yoga because it’s harmony of the nature. Yoga teaches to be aware of the body, breath and soul.

Ho avuto la fortuna di incontrar lo yoga grazie a mia madre, di ritorno da un suo viaggio in India. 

Ne sono rimasta subito affascinata e ho avuto il desiderio di praticare con coscienza,  intensità e curiosità questa straordinaria e potente disciplina. 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga è stata (ed è tuttora) la corrente che più mi ha catturata e affascinata; nutrivo il bisogno di “sentire” il mio corpo, di conoscerlo e rafforzarlo, mettendo al contempo alla prova la mia mente. Sentire e vivere il corpo attraverso i muscoli, le ossa, i nervi e tutti i suoi tessuti, è stato il punto di partenza per proseguire sempre più in profondità, fino ad arrivare agli strati più profondi e più sottili del mio essere.

Con pazienza, costanza, consapevolezza e fiducia continuo questo meraviglioso viaggio, che ha anche presentato momenti non sempre idilliaci; un viaggio che mi permette comunque, e con grandi benefici, di vivere e gestire al meglio la mia quotidianità.

 

Spinta dal desiderio di conoscere e approfondire questa disciplina millenaria, mi sono ritrovata a studiare in Canada - dove per un anno ho avuto la possibilità di studiare Yoga Terapia e Ashtanga Yoga - in Italia, Indonesia e Svizzera. E oggi sono infinitamente grata a tutti gli insegnanti e compagni di studi che ho incontrato lungo il cammino.

 

Non sono che agli inizi e con entusiasmo, curiosità e apertura proseguo con gioia e gratitudine questo percorso.

During the years when I was going through studying and formation and afterwards when I started to teach, I had the wonderful experience of this amazing practice "The Art of Living" and this is the message I try to transmit during the Hatha Yoga lessons I teach.

In 2007 I started my three years training at the Ananda Ashram where I attained my degree of yoga

teacher.

After that I followed several formative and detailed studies addressed to Yoga during pregnancy, Yoga

for childhood and elderly people where I present the courses beside the ones for adults.

Recently I started the KRI – International Teacher Training in Kundalini Yoga – in order to go in-depth

and expand my knowledge in this wonderful discipline that is Yoga. I always feel a huge joy when sharing

with others practices and teaching I learned and the consequent psychophysical well-being given by

Yoga.
