I offer different movements for warming the joints and the entire spine. All movements are accessible for all levels of training.

Parissa Shiralidze
I started yoga at 2016. Each session I attended and any style I tried made me notice how much my body and mind enjoy every asana and breath. Sharing what I have learned about yoga with those who share the same passion or are yet to figure it out is another thing I enjoy. One important lesson yoga has taught me is that each individual is unique, and so is their journey. So, hop on your mat and do not compare yourself with anyone

Ksenia Milushkina
I got acquainted with yoga as a kid, but consciously came to it only at 33. I've been practicing yoga for 7 years, and started my teaching journey 2 years ago. I finished 200 YTTC in St. Petersburg. I build a practice based on the static of Hatha Yoga and the dynamic of vinyasa, add elements of animal flow and vyayam for health and strengthening of joints. I pay attention to breathing throughout the practice, because I believe that breathing helps us feel our body.
I'm convinced that yoga is about restoring health and finding emotional balance. My class is about how to reconnect with your body, adjust the mind-body connection, learn how to relax.

Hatha Yoga and Flow

Varvara Margvelashvili
Hatha + flow is yoga that combines flexibility, endurance, strength and balance training. Smoothly moving from one pace to another, we combine breathing with movement and touch the moment "here and now" - the only place where life exists. The soft settings, intentions and meanings that I give during my classes provide a fundamental understanding of how the body works as a single system.
My name is Varvara Margvelashvili, I am a certified trainer under the YOGA TEACHERS TRAINING 200 HOURS program, trained at the MIIN Academy in the detoxification program, studying at the International School of Micronutrition under the nutritional therapist program and at the educational center Body Coach program "Stretching and flexibility training techniques."
