Tanya Sergeeva 

    Yoga came into my life in 2008.


   I started attending Hatha yoga classes at the Moscow Yoga Federation. In 2011 I learned about Ashtanga Yoga tradition and attended a workshop taught by Dmitry Baryshnikov at the Moscow Ashtanga Yoga Centre.


   My heart fully accepted this yoga style and since then my personal practice has been developing uninterruptedly based on this practice. 


     I attended the Moscow courses of Sharath Jois, the Guru and Keeper of the tradition, practiced with  western teachers Luck Jordan, Eddie Stern, Tim Feldmann, Ty Landrum and David Robson in Moscow, travelled to study with Ty Landrum in YIS Italy, David Garrigues in Ashtanga Yoga School Kovalam, India  and continued practicing with Dmitry Baryshnikov in his regular classes and workshops. 


     In January 2016 I was admitted to join my first course at Shri K.Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute, Mysore India, and stayed there in Jan-Feb 2016, returned in Feb-March 2017, Dec 2017 and Jan 2018.


     Since 2014 I have been teaching adult classes according to the Ashtanga yoga tradition (Mysore class, led class with counting). 


     Since 2013 I have been teaching group children's yoga classes at various yoga centers and childcare centers as well as one-to-one children's classes with children with various special needs. 


I attended workshops for children's yoga teachers taught by Victoria Zankina (Basic basics, Basic practices for children with special needs, Attention development for kids and courses by Jo Manuel in 2016 (Special Yoga for Special Children, Yoga for Children with Cerebral Palsy and have been certified to teach kids with special needs by The Special Yoga Foundation London.

     When I practice with children I am learning to be patient, accepting, generous, kind, compassionate, grateful. Thanks to yoga I develop my own ability to keep calm while being surrounded by tension, anger and worries. My regular daily practice, which helps me to realize my own nature and my strength is the key to my successful practice with both children and adults who choose to practice under my guidance. 

I am practicing yoga not to be better in yoga, I'm practicing because yoga is making my life better!
