About this pro

Thanks to yoga I lost 35lb, gained strength, flexibility and peace of mind. My transformation led me to my life’s passion - to inspire and support people in creating balanced work/lifestyles through yoga, meditation and mindful eating.

I love to see progress in my students' practice, and share their excitement achieving goals.

    Boy is Vlad a treat!! I'm a professional gymnast and very much into yoga as well. I know how important it is to find YOUR teacher. And I'm really glad that I met Vlad. Professional, spiritual, dedicated, super friendly and more than affordable. Thank you again and again. Highly recommend.

    We love Vlad to be our whole family yoga instructor. We have him to teach us yoga since last year. And my two little one love to do yoga with him too! Thank you for being such a great encouraging instructor to my whole family!

    Vlad is rad, seriously! Yoga was pretty difficult for me in the past because I didn't have a great teacher. However, after my sessions with him yoga became fun, challenging, and enjoyable again. He has an amazing holistic approach to yoga, and is considerate of your personal goals. I'm very excited he's teaching in LA now! Go check out a session--I highly recommend his class!



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

  • We will begin with a warm up and then go through some basic movement to assess your practice.
  • I will create a customized sequence for you that will help you to develop your strength and flexibility. Every week we will be adding new elements for keep you challenged and excited. 
  • We will explore different breathing techniques to oxygenate your cells, reduce anxiety and increase clarity and focus.
  • We will finish every session in “corpse pose” with “sound bath” which provides deep relaxation by slowing down your brainwaves, shifting from a more active state (beta) to a more relaxed dreamlike state (alpha).

How did you get started teaching?

By the age of 25, I had never exercised. I ate without care or caution. I spent most of my time in front of the computer screen studying and working on an online business. I thought it was normal to have pain in the back, neck and wrists as I got older. I didn't have energy to handle day to day tasks. I was tired of being angry, overweight and unfocused... I changed my diet completely and began studying yoga. I lost 35 lb., gained strength and became more flexible. My energy increased and so did my mental acuity. I did 200 hour teacher training with Yoga Tree (San Francisco) where I was selected as ambassador to all instructors during training. I become certified instructor of Yoga Alliance USA in 2014.


What types of students have you worked with?

Recently I relocated to Los Angeles / West Hollywood area where I am developing a dedicated yoga practice. I teach group classes at studios like Yogala, Silverlake Yoga, Hot 8 Yoga, 24 Hours Fitness, as well as private sessions and corporate classes. I work with companies like Metro Headquarters, Disney, HKS Architects, Autodesk. I create design unique class tailored for your specific needs. It might be a morning meditation or gentle stretching during lunch or a more rigorous class to end your day. I am working a lot with busy professional teaching them how to find focus and peace in mind as well as develop flexibility and gain strength.
