I first tried yoga 12 years ago in Germany and later I started intensively practiced at Tbilisi Yoga Loft, where I have explored the depths of yoga. It has made a big difference in my consciousness and my physical body. After experiencing for myself how yoga affecting and bringing you into harmony with the outside world, how it regulates so many aspects around us as well, I decided to take a yoga teacher training at Loft. It gave me the opportunity to share this magical power of yoga with people.

Olesia Troshina
I tried kundalini yoga in 2012 and it was love from the first breath. It made me feel like there is nothing impossible and know I'm sharing my experience with others.
For me the lineage is very important so I'm devoted to my teachers and constantly studying with them at Ra Ma Institute of Applied Yogic Science and Technologies.

I find kundalini yoga the highest technology to have full experience of life, to control our body and mind systems, to create energy and to get rid of subconscious patterns. It's a lifetime journey and it's all about love and fun.
