Sopo Kharebashvili
Before becoming a student at Tbilisi Yoga Loft, I never had the intention to become a yoga teacher, but I also had no idea it could be such a pleasure to share my experience with other people. Ashtanga might seem one of the most strict, precise among yoga styles, but that is what makes Ashtanga so meditative and smooth and dynamic at the same time.

Style: Ashtanga

I spent the last several years traveling mostly in Asia. I tried many different styles of yoga here and there. While in Nepal, I got stuck for almost a year during the pandemic and all of my previous experience with yoga lead me to a teacher training course.

In my class, I hope to pass along this same passion that I have been developing as a new practitioner and teacher.

Ilia Kostenko
My martial arts journey began at an early age, 31 years ago. I attended school sections of martial arts, fought a lot on the streets and constantly tried to come up with exercises and techniques myself. At the age of 12, having experienced a deep experience of loss, left an orphan, I became deeply involved in spiritual search, discovered the philosophy of Tao and Zen, and began to practice Qigong and Meditation, which went hand in hand with the practice of Chinese Wushu. I studied with the eminent masters Sam F.S. Chin and Alex Skalozub, as well as their closest students. In 2015, I was honored to receive a certificate and the right to teach from the patriarch of the school, Sam F.S. Chin. Now I am happy to share this art here in Georgia.

Anna Geranina
My name is Anya. I'm passionate about travel and yoga. I started practicing and studying yoga philosophy when I was living in Nepal. I've also become incredibly fascinated with the anatomy of the human body. At some point, I realized that I wanted to share my knowledge so I took a teachers' course at Tbilisi Yoga Loft.
My classes are all about getting to know and reconnecting with our bodies. I offer a gentle full-body practice with a focus on the wellness of the spine, relieving tension from the shoulders and the neck. I offer different movements for warming the joints and the entire spine. All movements are accessible for all levels of training.
I try to draw students' attention to the sensations and processes that occur in their bodies during practice - thereby developing Body Intelligence. It is important for me that students understand what we are doing and why. The main ingredients of my classes are love and respect for our bodies.

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.
